Help: Looking for... Mouse Hunt HDTV Rips
Time

Earlier this year, the film Mouse Hunt received a Blu-ray release. I was pretty hyped, seeing how it was one of my favorite childhood movies. To my disappointment however, the film had a dark blue tint put over the entire movie. It was much darker than before and it doesn’t fit the tone of the light hearted comedy. I would like to acquire an HDTV or a VHS version seeing how it has more accurate color timing. Any help would be appreciated.

The Phantom Menace: The Theatrical Version (a WIP)
Time

There have been a lot of theatrical recreations of The Phantom Menace out there. However none satisfy me as a true theatrical version. So my goal is to recreate the film as closely as possible. As many people know, every version of The Phantom Menace released on home video has some flaws. The VHS, Laserdisc and DVD versions all come from the same master. Due to the limitations of the technology at the time, they all have a strange pink tint and the entire picture is cropped by 8 percent. The Blu-ray and 4K releases are closer to how the film looked originally and are uncropped but have severe DNR. I decided to combine all these versions together. The main source for my project is the Laserdisc release as it’s the highest quality official release of the original version of the film. However, as stated before, it is slightly cropped and the color grading is off. I decided to upscale this version using AI. To get theatrical color timing, I used a 35mm print by Team Negative One and color corrected shot by shot to match. I also used this version to recreate the missing image detail on the edges. When I am done with this project, please PM me for a link.

Info Needed: The Look of The Matrix
Time

As many people know, there are three versions of The Matrix available on home video. There is the 1999 version, the 2008 version and the 2018 version. All of these have drastically different colors. But I would like to know which version is the closest to the theatrical release and what the theatrical version even looked like. Any help would be appreciated.

Help: Looking for... The Shining VHS Rips
Time

In 2019, I went and saw The Shining in theaters. It was the recent 4K remaster of the film. Although it was scanned from the original negative, it was a very different version from the original. I would like to obtain a copy of the VHS because it is closer to the original. It starts off with the 1973 Warner Bros. Pictures logo instead of the classic shield logo. Also the film was shot in full open matte so there would be more picture on the top and bottom of the screen. However this version is quite rare. Any help would be appreciated.

Help: Looking for... The Wizard of Oz VHS Rips
Time

In 1949, MGM rereleased The Wizard of Oz in theaters to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the film. This version of the film had the Kansas scenes in black and white instead of sepia tone. This master was used in every home video release until the 1989 home video release which used the original sepia tones. I have never seen the black and white version. I grew up watching the 1999 DVD release. I would like to obtain a copy of the black and white version though. I don’t know where as this version is considered quite rare. Any help would be appreciated.

Help: Looking for... Harry Potter VHS Rips
Time

From 2002 to 2005, Warner Bros. Pictures released the first four Harry Potter films on VHS. I would like to acquire copies. The only film I have currently is Goblet of Fire as DragoonClawNZ had released his rip of the film. Does anyone know where I could find the first three films on VHS? Any help would be appreciated.

Nostalgia Critic: Remastered (on hiatus)
Time

In 2018, the member BlueCopy remastered and upscaled the Mr. Plinkett Reviews by RedLetterMedia. I was amazed by the idea. So I decided to start my own project. I would remaster and upscale the Nostalgia Critic reviews in a similar fashion. This needs to be done as the first three seasons are in 480p and are plagued by interlacing artifacts and other similar problems. Also, due to the YouTube copyright system, many episodes have muted or changed audio and missing scenes that will need to be added back in. When I am done with the project, please PM me for a link. However, this is a very big project so it might take a while.
