Films re-released with alterations

I watched my 1985 Rocky laserdisc (Japanese) recently and noticed during the final scene that some of the audio was different from the version on blu ray and dvd.

After the final bell in the Rocky\Apollo fight, a piano piece plays briefly before the main music kicks in. IMDB mentions this was removed for the surround sound versions for DVD.

The next thing I cant find any reference to online. On the Laserdisc after the final bell rings, Apollo says "Aint gonna be no rematch" just once and Rocky replies "Dont want one" twice, the second time sounding quite emotional and like he REALLY doesnt want one.

Does anyone know when they changed that to the version that is on every DVD\Blu Ray\youtube upload that I can find of the scene. Apollo saying “Aint gonna be no rematch" twice, followed by a single relatively nonchalant "Dont want one” from Rocky?

The original mono on the BD has the piano playing while they don’t want no rematch, but yeah it has Apollo twice and Rocky once, so I’d be curious to hear that LD. Could you record that bit of dialogue and post it online?

I’ll add this if it can be confirmed.

EDIT: On second thought, I won’t add this. I don’t want to go down the audio changes rabbit hole or this thread will never end.

Which trailers accompanied the movies?

Also, this was posted in another thread:
It lists Like Mike and Minority Report as a part of the package.

Here’s part two of my last video, this time introducing how Nuke will be used in my new v3.0 workflow.😃
I listened to the complaints from the last one and made this one on one monitor, so you guys can better see what’s going on 😃

These are really neat to see. Thanks for doing them!

Which has more CGI: Phantom Menace or Force Awakens

“Every single shot has a visual effect”

I don’t think that’s the case for TFA (besides obvious like coloring). And even if it is, it blends with practical so well you can barely tell the difference.

It’s quite possible that it’s the same thing for TFA, but it’s so common nowadays that it’s not even worth mentioning, pretty different from how it all was in 1999.

At the very least I feel like there’s a lot of little, quality of life type things that go into modern movies, like painting out wires and prop operators and alike.

OOT vhs box set?

The film Star Wars wasn’t marketed as “Episode IV: A New Hope” until around the time the prequels were released. So they definitely would not be OOT.

The last OOT VHS release was probably the Faces set.

The Faces tapes say A New Hope on them, but the Laserdiscs don’t for some reason.

…*checking for verification.

Okay, on the spine yes. But only on the spine.

The cassette label also had the ‘A New Hope’ subtitle.

Comparing the theatrical posters and the DVDs on my shelf… I guess I need to make some custom covers.
Also, the 1995 LaserDisc does say A New Hope, but on the back:
(The 1993 release does not)

Huh. I guess I never noticed that.

That said, a recompositing of the original film elements for an OUT wouldn’t offend me, but I also don’t tend to think it is necessary.

People on this site are the only ones I’ve ever seen that claim to be offended by recompositing the original effects. I don’t think they’re bothered by the TNG blurays though.

I am. I’m even offended that To Kill a Mockingbird removed optical grain during push-ins.
