what would count as a contributing member?
Led Zeppelin is so stingy I swear, don’t get me started on the Wayne’s World case
What scene was it in?
I’m sure a lot of already saw my thread on how I’ve restored a bunch of the broadcast music to a lot of episodes of That 70s Show, well since that thread I managed to locate a few more episodes but I’m sadly still missing a third of season 1, all of season 2, and an episode of season 3. I’ve run out of ideas on where to look and idk anyone else who could still have those ancient broadcast rips circulating around for years. I’ve been doing this project for almost 3 years and I still don’t have everything I need to finish. If anyone knows where or has any episodes from the original airings at all, please message me.
does anyone have any updates regarding this project?
I’m very desperate at getting the rest of this series restored, I still am missing a third of season 1, all of season 2, and the one season 3 episode
please let me know the best places at where I can get them
I’ve got both the LD and a scan and its not present in either of them
Is that print from 1989?
What Jesse Owens line?
Do the Right Thing got the color grading fixed on the Criterion Blu-ray disc release, correct?
Yes, along with eliminating all of the severe DNR and sharpening that plagued the old Universal release
I know that not too long ago reel 1 was finished
Back to the Future should be added
just thought I’d correct a small mistake here
the CCE master wasn’t just on the Criterion LD, it was also on the very FIRST New Line DVD (the flipper DVD), I have a rip of it and it does look identical to the LD
I know Grease has been added already, but there is more to it. The 20th anniversary 1998 5.1 remix of Grease had all of the songs remixed (like adding reverb and background vocals to a couple of the songs) and added a bunch of foley sound effects. This was the only mix available for 20 years. The 40th anniversary 5.1 remix restores the original sound mix and sounds far better than the previous 5.1 mix.
Think I’ve shared this before. Not a comparison of a surround mix to mono but IMO the mono track on the BD of Frankenstein is very flat.
Ah yes I’m quite familiar with this one, I own the 1999 DVD myself and despite being mastered too quiet it sounds far better and more lifelike than the blu-ray
Well at least the Disney+ versions restore the Fox logos despite since 1997 the original trilogy has had them plastered, along with removing references to News Corporation
It’s missing from the Blu-ray as well??
Weekend at Bernie’s sadly has had a bit of an issue on home video. After the first VHS release of the movie, the second movie came out which revealed at one point that Larry was a virgin. However, in the first movie there’s a scene that strongly implied he has sex with a woman at the party. So after the second movie was released that scene was removed on all subsequent home video releases, with an exception which was the region 2 DVD. I was hoping to possibly get my hands on this removed scene and reconstruct it using blu-ray footage. If anyone can possibly send it to me let me know.
No DVD versions do
I was thinking of getting the vhs tapes to sync Clint’s ape movies but then I saw the prices :p
For LD I
Don’t think a pcm track is available in mono just a stereo mix so would have to use analog Ld
Heartbreak ridge and gauntlet were stereo but I can tell they were tinkered with for the 5.1
From what it seems Gauntlet didn’t seem that tampered with cause I can tell all of the gunfire and other noises were period appropriate, though I could be wrong with some of it
Since pretty much almost all of the classic Clint Eastwood movies (particularly the ones from Warner Bros. mostly) seem to have alterations to their audio tracks, I decided to start this thread to list those movies and possibly get laserdisc versions of the original audio tracks.
One of the most notorious examples are the Dirty Harry movies, their 5.1 remixes saw extremely severe sound effects replacement and there hasn’t been a re-release of the original mono tracks since the 1998 DVD releases.
Doesn’t look perfect, probably a little too close to the DVD, but it looks vastly superior to the blu-ray color timing, especially the skies since they don’t look green anymore
1.85:1 isn’t OAR…? What would OAR be for a US film from the 80’s that isn’t anamorphic? 1.66:1 was European standard, so I assume it would have been matted differently there, but surely it would have been composed for 1.85:1, right?
1.85:1 IS the OAR from theaters (including Europe) but it was shot in 1.66:1 and that’s how the Criterion releases are
Imo it works best in 1.85:1
I’d gladly donate toward a future release for access to these other Disney prints.
I second this
made a comparison with Halloween
boy is this 5.1 remix awful lol
