Back to the Future - without DNR & EE (Help Wanted)
Time

I'd be interested in the Edited for TV audio if anybody was able to find it.

I guess I could make my own by inserting silence or a bleep over the swear words, but sometimes TV versions manage to keep the background sound as well which I might be able to do in adobe Audition if I play around, but I'm really not an audio guy.

sometimes of course TV edits insert "alternative" dialogue dubbed by someone who sounds nothing like the original actor, but any audio that makes these films closer to G rated would be good. I have watched them with the kids unedited and made loud throat clearing sounds where I knew there to be a "Holy S@#t" or "Do we turn in to A$$holes or something?" coming, but it's easy to miss them. Sooner or later they are going to pick up on some of the language.

team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (release details and updates)
Time

I don't know about you, but I am experiencing very slow page loads on the blog site at the moment: This happens whenever a number of people are currently streaming and/or downloading HD video clips from the site. We do have "unlimited bandwidth" in the sense that we do not get charged extra for using 3 GB of Bandwidth in under an hour (current stats), but obviously only so many bytes can be streamed to so many users at one time. So if you are currently waiting for the page to load, or a video to start, or experience these issues in the future, please be patient or try back later...

The site is still up and has been all week. New content posts have slowed down a little recently, but it should pick up again soon. My goal is to have something new on the site at least every three days, but I don't always have something new to post.

If you still can't get to the site, try flushing your DNS entries. On Windows, open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter.

Looks brand new! Don't know how long the send space link will be good so I have posted it here:

http://www.thestarwarstrilogy.com/starwars/post/2012/10/25/Star-Wars-Holiday-Special-Boba-Fett-Cartoon.aspx

I have also converted it to an MP4 so you can watch it online.

I'm curious... isn't there a loss of resolution between the two? At least when I play back, the MP4 has a significantly smaller window than the original.

Yes there is, but right under the video is a link to Download the original DVD VOB files created by G-Force.

The Living Daylights - Workprint?
Time

I just stumbled across something called the James Bond Golden Jubilee project. It is available as a 31 GB torrent of rare James Bond related treasures, including The Living Daylights Workprint. Much of it can be downloaded separately from hotfiles, if you have the patience.

I am trying to get the whole project through bittorrent. The first 60% downloaded very quickly, but since then it has been crawling along... Been stuck @ about 78/79% all day.

I will post everything I think I can get away with on my James Bond site.

Best source for the Mos Eisley speeder pass-by shot
Time

Yeah, sorry I forgot about that. I was reading about AntcuFaalb's Chroma/Luma separation trick and thinking maybe it would work even better with an X0 capture, I forgot that the X0 had the smearing on it too. Shame we don't have an X0 capture of the Technidisc. Still, when Negative1 releases the 35mm footage that will probably be the best source we're likely to have.

Any hope for killing the "NOOOOOOOOOO"?
Time

The "Nooooooooo!!" added to ROTJ isn't as bad as I had feared. Not nearly as bad as the one in Episode III anyway.

Having only ever watched ROTJ maybe 10 times in 25 years and mostly on small screen VHS I had never noticed that as Vader is lit up by the Emperor you can see his skull. I thought that was a new effect so I went back to the GOUT to check and saw it was there too, but as I watched the scene in the GOUT I *Almost* missed the "NOOOO!!" - it just seemed oddly quiet...

NOOOOOOOO!!! What is wrong with me?

I didn't try the other audio tracks on the Bluray, I suppose it is on all of them?

General Harry Potter Discussion
Time
I just launched a new web site: http://www.thedailyprophetonline.com. My goal is to help keep the world of Harry Potter moving on - right now it is just using real world, harry Potter related headlines and stories, but I would really like to mix in fictional wizarding world news. Sort of like http://www.theonion.com/ but somewhat less satirical and obviously based in Harry Potter's world.

If anyone has any ideas or would like to contribute to the site please let me know.
