Info: Mono soundtracks that were butchered with 5.1 remixes in later releases
Time

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3QSVzSXeos

ok here you go, I didn’t have the video finished yet

the sound of the shotgun falling to the ground, Max falling on the car, and the bird wing noises are all not in this version, which is a recording of an Australian broadcast from 1985

meaning they were never in the Aussie track to begin with, they were first added to the US dub, the region 2 DVD has an altered mono track and the Kino release is correct

with the exception of putting the clips together, I didn’t touch the recording at all (I even left in the PAL speed up), the first clip is to showcase it’s from a broadcast (yes the Superman theme was always there, it was added by the channel who aired this) and the last clip at the end is to show that it does in fact have the Aussie dialogue

The recent 4K release of Mad Max restores the proper Aussie mono mix

The comparison video floating around is misleading, the sound effects that it claims are missing were never there to begin with

They were added for the US dub originally, the European DVD is a weird hybrid that utilizes the Aussie dialogue but uses a few of the US mix sound effects

If anyone doesn’t believe me I actually have proof about this

Info: The films of Sergio Leone - The best available versions...
Time

The Mondo transfer uses the same 4K master but it’s unfaithful to the original prints and looks too purple, the MGM BD from 2014 tries but fails to replicate the original theatrical color timing (which was extremely yellow) and instead looks more brownish than anything, Kino’s dials back the yellow but as a result what looks like a blue tint covers a lot of the picture and affects the black levels

Between these three though I’d say the Kino one is the best since it also has the original mono track and something at least close to the theatrical version

Melrose Place - SOAPnet run
Time

Does anyone possibly have any recordings of the SOAPnet run of Melrose Place?

There are recordings with original music floating around but sadly they’re cut for time and the SOAPnet versions are far more likely to be uncut

The reason why is because the DVD versions like 90210 are edited and replace nearly all the music

If anyone knows where I can at least locate them please let me know

I just inspected a few episodes on HBO Max and they all seem to be uncensored except for the first two episodes and Terror Tales of the Park uses its re-arranged version rather than the original version that first aired (I actually never got why this one was done)

Interesting. This is good to note. I didn’t even know the Terror Tales of the Park was ever re-arranged (assuming you’re talking about the first one).

Thanks.

Yes I am, for some reason in the re-arranged version they put the first two segments as a single episode and then put the third as an entirely separate episode (interestingly enough put as the episode before the re-edited other two segments), ruining the ending of it, also the intro was changed to accommodate for this

I think this was done after the first airing as I remember all rebroadcasts being re-arranged

Other than the intro I don’t think any actual footage was altered or removed

The “Coming Summer 1990” is not included on the full screen R1 DVD box set.

It’s not in the 2002 Widescreen DVD set either. V1 or V2 (the original pressings of Part II and III had significant framing issues that were later fixed). It was restored for the first time on a video release (to my knowledge) on the 25th anniversary Blu-ray and DVD releases form 2011.

As a teenager I was a pretty die hard BTTF nerd for awhile after the first DVD set came out and I only came to know of the existence of the Summer 1990 tag from reading it on IMDB in the “alternate versions” section. I remember being impressed that it was restored for the Blu-ray. I had a whole bunch of computer printed BTTF crap hung all over my bedroom walls as a kid. I still have a book case with some of those images still taped to the side of it that I never bothered to remove, lol.

The “coming summer 1990” credit is included on the new 4K set

Also the squished credits at the end of the first movie are fixed in the 4K master

Conan The Barbarian - Blu-ray (new DTS track available) and a host of info (Released)
Time

I know it’s been years since this thread was replied on but the Prime version of the movie in the US is in fact the US theatrical version (the BD was the international cut) and its audio is mono, I spot checked and the choir is present in the opening raid scene, meaning it’s the most faithful version currently available
