Definitely would like a MEGA link via DM.

I can upload the DVD5 with the Russian VHS rip, but I honestly wanted to do a “restoration” of the VHS to convert it to NTSC, clean up artifacts, and sync the original English DTS audio. I am uploading to Drive now tho. I am gonna PM all the people who asked for links later tonight.

Info & Offer: The Brave Little Toaster - 1991 NTSC VHS
Time

Recently I purchased a sealed VHS copy of Brave Little Toaster. Thankfully this NTSC release is unmodified from later NTSC releases and has the original stereo mix of the movie! Sadly despite the tape being brand new in the clamshell case the video and audio are a tad messy. If anyone is interested in a download let me know!

Willy Wonka Original Mono Mix Preservation Opportunity!
Time

Hey everyone I am interested in getting the original 1991 Wonka LaserDisc transferred to get the original Mono mix. It has never been released past that 1991 release and the new 4K BD lacks it as well.

If anyone is interested in fundraising to purchase the LaserDisc let me know! I only need 40 USD. I have someone I can send the disc to for transfer and I have done it before many times with other LaserDiscs! PM me if interested!

LDDB for the disc:

EDIT:
Someone already ripped the LaserDisc on FanRes synced with the 4K UHD.

The Matrix Open Matte Discussion (with project release info)
Time

Not sure if anyone noticed, but there is another Fullscreen Open Matte source for The Matrix aside from the ICTV rip. RuTracker has another Fullscreen rip from what seems to be a Russian VHS and not only does it look better imo visually, but it has more footage all around and better-looking colors.

Example here:

Left is the Russian VHS and Right is the ICTV rip

Shrek - 35MM Restoration (Available Now Via PM)
Time

Mango said:

I’d just like everyone to know that I’ve taken into account the various problems with Version 1 of this project. First and foremost, it was encoded at 30fps for the purposes of making a blu-ray, which is not an easy thing to do for a mac user. I use Adobe Encore for making blu-rays, and the lowest framerate it can accept without lagging is 30fps. Therefore, I will from now on release all of my projects as as the raw MOV files that are made in Final Cut Pro. Version 2 of Shrek will happen sometime later this year, but I’d like to take a break to work on some of my old projects that have just as many people interested. First and foremost, I am returning to work on my Devo project. It won’t be as lavish as I originally intended, but It will have as many Bonus Features as I can possibly come up with.

Again, I’m sorry about the problems with the Shrek restoration. They have been noted and will be fixed by the time Version 2 happens.

If you need any help let me know! I know some people that are great at encoding film scans!

Terminator 2 35mm Print Opportunity!
Time

This 35mm print of Terminator 2 has shown up on Ebay! It has some absolutely beautiful color and would be amazing to get a 4K scan considering how bad the official UHD release is. Not super interested in setting up fundraising, but if anyone else wants to than that would be amazing and I would be willing to help with donations!

Looking for original mono mixes for The Beatles - Help! and Magical Mystery Tour
Time

Currently trying to get the mono mixes for a project I’m working on. I have the original Stereo Laser Disc mix of Magical Mystery Tour which has the original “Roll Up” sequence which was removed from later releases voiced over by John Lennon, but it’s Stereo rather than being the original Mono mix shown in theaters and on the BBC. Help! has never had the original mono mix released in any form as far as I know. Maybe TV rips or something? The Blu-Ray release while also being pretty disgusting visually didn’t even offer the Mono mix while the Yellow Submarine release and Criterion’s Hard Day’s Night release had the Mono mixes. Any help (no pun intended) would be appreciated!

The Shining - 35mm print opportunity (a WIP)
Time

SilverWook said:

Poita has found a faded original 1980 release print. Besides my obsession with the film, I thought it might be useful for the original mono soundtrack, and seeing the full aperture of the film.

I’ve read an account in a Kubrick fan group from someone who saw a 35mm screening that was unmatted. Besides the infamous helicopter shadow, microphones and other film gear can be allegedly seen. More stuff for the conspiracy theory crowd to chew on. 😉

The asking price is $280 plus shipping. (The seller is in the U.S.) Anyone interested in helping out in getting this? The only thing holding me back at the moment is the latest round of home improvements I need to pay for this summer.

I seriously doubt the legendary lost ending is there, but I can dream!

The mono mix is apparently on a old open matte DVD. That probably sounds a little better than a 35mm sound track would

Transfer of The Beatles - Yellow Submarine 1987 Laser Disc! (Released)
Time

SpacemanDoug said:

Is it finished now?

The transfer is finished, but I’m still waiting on the encode to be done for the movie. Once that is finished I’ll set up a download in my Discord server for both the raw transfer, and a “remastered” version. Is sharing links to Discord here against the rules? If not I’ll edit this post with a Discord link for further updates.

Transfer of The Beatles - Yellow Submarine 1987 Laser Disc! (Released)
Time

SpacemanDoug said:

Is it the US cut?

Yes the cut that has the “Beatles To Battle” scene that plays Baby, You’re A Rich Man. The 1999 releases and onward remove this scene and replace it with the Beatles talking to Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and then leading into the Hey Bulldog scene. It’s why you hear the start up to the song in the Blu-Ray/1999 release, but not hear the full song itself. Personally I prefer the 1999 cut of the movie as it’s far less abrupt of an ending, but it’s very cool to have a chance to preserve an alternate cut of the movie never rereleased past 1987
