Are y’all still taking donations for this? I have to see it and want to contribute!
My goodness maybe this means a release is in the cards?? Studiocanal is not shy about releasing things. It’ll probably be a license first above all though. Wowee zowee!!
Except in the places where some of the films were digital noise reduced to remove grain, i honestly don’t see anything to be gained from a release print.
The look of the movie on a print is the draw, tbh. If that doesn’t concern you or you do not care then you do you
Not to scold or anything but it’s good to stick around and make some friends + connections. We’re a community enjoying the hobby, have fun with us! Making thread after thread of homework requests for others isn’t a good look. There are currently no scans for this online. I recommend scoping eBay and locating one if it’s ever for sale and get in contact with the appropriate folks to acquire and scan it. Of course, it helps to stick around and meet people. There’s plenty of things I’d like to see on 35mm and when they happen they happen. When you want to see something bad enough, it can happen provided strings are pulled when possible.
I wish you luck!
There aren’t any known 35mm scans online yet. Hoping that changes in the future cuz I sure would like to see one.
Well I wouldn’t necessarily use the word gorgeous but it is interesting nonetheless
I called it fabulous, but speaking of which gorgeous is a good way to describe it!
There’s a 35mm theatrical print scan out there if you know where to look. It’s absolutely fabulous and better than any TV broadcast.
Not the place to ask this question, yo
So they botched the bluray of this one?
Pretty much. It wasn’t handled very well and looked meh even back when it came out. The soundtrack is revisionist nonsense as well.
Botched isn’t the right term. It’s more of a case of the transfer looking dated, similar to the early blu ray transfers of 2001 and The Shining compared to their recent 4K counterparts.
2001 and The Shining’s old masters (even with the wrongly colored tennis ball) are excellent compared to what WB pulled on Clockwork Orange tbh.
This was very obviously shot to have that grim French look going on somewhat, like a lighter hearted City of Lost Children. I did see it in the theater way back when and recall it having a dark warm look. My memory of it is not as vivid as say, The Lost World though.
I’m not sure what your TV’s settings are but it shouldn’t look blue at all.
I’d appreciate an invite to the forum, please!
It doesn’t appear to have ever been subtitled unfortunately. You can find it raw easily if you know where to look.
From what I can see, it was only released in Japan on VHS. It remains unreleased on any other format in the country. The copy on Youtube comes from its Polish DVD release which is as far as I know, the uncut Japanese version with Japanese credits. It has no English subtitles but the Japanese audio is there.
I hope y’all do Hunchback of Notre Dame at some point. THat’s my favorite 90s Disney film, and I’d love to revisit it how I saw back in the theater.
I’d like to donate toward this, I’d been meaning to and forgot it was happening.
I recommend using the Italian Dybex Bluray for video. The 4k master is heavily filtered. A go-to using the best audio and video would be great, but the 4k isn’t it imo.
One could rip the laserdisc audio and then sync it to the Bluray, yes. I don’t have the LD but I can look into seeing if anyone has it.
Screencaps of HDR content pulled from disc is not 100% accurate representation of how said content should look when properly played back on an HDR display. Caps are okay for a thin frame of reference and nothing more.
The DVD and Laserdisc are the same master I’m fairly certain
I’d love to check this out! If you’re still taking donations for it or anything else please let me know.
It was this logo btw
That’s just the logo Saul Bass designed which was also used on The Shining and The Exorcist. Very cool!
Still need any cash for this?
I too would like to donate toward it or any related project. I’d love to see this!
I’d like to put $15 towards this! Absolutely elated at the thought of watching a print!
I’d like to donate if it’s not too late!
Not too late at all. How much would you like to donate?
I’ll do $15. I can do another $15 on the first of June also.
