Blu Ray 1977 said:
I believe Fast Times at Ridgemont High had some changes as well. Some home video releases had different songs due to licensing but I think this was resolved by the time the film made it to DVD. The surround mix first introduced on the 2005 DVD had some minor effects changes I believe. That DVD as well as the BD does not have the mono. The original DVD and the High School Reunion DVD as far as I know has the correct original mono!
It’s me Pete 1972! You remember when we commented on the Jaws videos? Looks like another film is getting the audio revisionism treatment. According to Digital Bits and some fans, Batman 89’s Dolby Atmos mix has a lot of changes with the sound effects. Gun shots have been altered and the starting up of the Batmobile is changed too. Also Digital Bits said that the Dolby 5.1 on the 4K is a downmix and not the 5.1 that was on the previous Blu Ray.
Figures. (Rolls eyes) Apparently the 4K release of Blade Runner also has audio revisions though I’m not sure off hand what they are.
And yes I do remember you. Nice to see ya again!
actually the audio revisions on Blade Runner date back to when the 2007 Blu-ray was released, and the revisions are only on the final cut, the other cuts have the original sound effects
No I’ve seen comments on bluray.com that apparently more revisions were made to the Final Cut mix for the UHD release.
Here’s part of a quote from one user.
“As for the audio, I must apologise to whomever it was who mentioned that the sounds of the fire plumes in the opening ‘hades’ shot were different, because they ARE different and it’s patently obvious. This isn’t just Atmos affecting it (which I don’t use anyway, listening in straight 7.1), this isn’t just better quality, this is noticeably different audio. This continues into the opening scene at Tyrell Corp, like where you can now hear the distinct ‘woosh’ of the fan blades overhead during the wide shot in the ‘mother’ exchange between Holden and Leon, then when Leon actually shoots him the sound of his first gunshot is largely unchanged but the second one has been altered to a more normal sounding gun and Holden hitting the table is palpably ‘sharper’ sounding, for want of a better description.”
