“User Monsieur Hulot has been banned for using sock account Shermy to pose as another person. I’m locking this thread, since he will not be able to post anymore”

Apologies. Hadn’t seen your post. As this project is ongoing, would you advise opening a new thread?

Pretty sure he’s just quoting what was said in Hulot’s FanRes thread. This thread here clearly isn’t locked. 😉

My mistake! Thought it odd I could still post!

What exactly did Hulot do to get himself the boot? Someone on Fanres called himself a little shit for some reason and I’m not entirely sure why

“Little shit” seems fair. Will keep things vague and cursory because it’s really not worth reliving… but… aggressive posts, repeated levelheaded requests to cool it from myself and just about everyone else, unhinged behavior, concocted family troubles and multiple sock puppet accounts is roughly the gist of it. And “unhinged” is being kind.

Folks, this project is still happening, so rest assured to anyone who has donated. Hulot, fortunately, directed all funds to Williarob. I guess that makes this a TN1 project now?

All a huge relief, I assure you, as I personally organized a large chunk of the fundraising through my many contacts in Indiana Jones fandom.

I see Hulot also opened a sock puppet account on FanRes which ultimately got the thread closed there. But again, this is still happening under more capable hands.

(Apologies in advance for the off topic question, I just can’t find a better place to ask right now)

Is TheStarWarsTrilogy down? I’ve checked two sites, one says it’s down, the other says it’s up. Yesterday I just got an error message that mentioned server maintenance, so I assumed the forum was being updated or something. Now it still won’t load the site, but instead of an error message it asks for me to sign in. I assume it’s asking for an administrative sign in or something, because putting in my own sign in info doesn’t do anything.

I figure it’s nothing to worry about, but I wanted to check if anyone else knows what’s up.

It’s now back up.

Yeah, but been getting high CPU errors all day when I try to look at any threads.

"No Luke, I am your father." from Empire Strikes Back (a clickbait & edited youtube video)

Somebody explain this:

Man… had a little debate about this line the other day, someone insisting that it was “Luke, I am your father.” They mentioned there was a video online where you could hear him say “No, Luke.” Without even looking it up, I waved it off as obviously edited. But is this what he’s talking about!? That edit is horrible. Amazing that anyone would be fooled by this.

Info Wanted: Are there any preservations of Lucio Fulci's 'Zombie' (Zombi 2)?

As far as I can remember, this original theatrical mix is different than the one most of us are used to around the point where Dr. Menard shoots the zombie as it’s getting up, the end of the “shark vs. zombie” scene, and the zombie invasion of New York (the transition there happens after “…Manhattan. General Stein…” and the anchor’s scream sounds very different in the original theatrical mix).

Very interesting to hear. Who knew a movie with such a low budget would get so many changes post-release. Regrading and mixing’s one thing, but changes in voices and foley is just ridiculous.

Reminds me of when I saw the Evil Dead 4K restoration in theaters. It had an all new soundtrack and it felt far too grandiose for the original micro-budget film.

Ditto on the new Evil Dead score. Was much too much for the movie.

Film looked incredible, though.

Young Indiana Jones... a preservation (* unfinished project *) - a mass of info & ideas

So I just registered for this purpose. I would love to bring back the original episodes. I could buy the box set and start capturing but I don’t have the funds for it. How would I go about starting up a funding for it? I would need a good capture device and the boxset. Right now I think the boxset would be USD 300 and capture hardware could be bought for under USD 200 probably.

Please do not spend that much on one of those box sets. I own one. I have the means to rip it. And I only spent $66. Do not give these scammers the satisfaction.

Besides, the laser disc set is not what we should be ripping— what we want is the Australian VHS tapes. I have two of the six volumes, but no PAL VCR. Would gladly rip them if I could get a compatible VCR. The laser discs have hardcoded Japanese subtitles.
