Star Wars Documentaries on Film to be scanned.
Time

Just sent $50 through paypal. I can’t wait to see these!
If you ever come across the two Raiders docs, I know they’re out there! I’d love to see those scanned as well 😃

JAWS 2 - Extended Edition - Video Sources Needed

So this is the first deleted scene from the TV Version - presented from my personal copy, and from the DVD-R. I’ve tried working through the speedup issues on my copy and have something fairly presentable now. The DVD-R doesn’t have such issues. I’ve applied similar cleanup to both. Wanted to get some opinions on the footage - I’m a bit split.

Man, that transfer is gorgeous. What the hell is your master?

I can’t find anything confirming or denying it. The only way to find out would be for an expert to rip the audio and visual or something.

There is no way in Hell it will be the original version. Anyone who says otherwise is starting ridiculous rumors.

My friend has it on goodish authority that this is the unaltered version.

Your friend is 100% wrong.

How do you know? Are you from the future?

No. I’m from the present that’s sane, realistic and based in fact. This concert series is run by the same people regardless of venue. This isn’t changing.

How about instead of beings a debie downer lets just wait and see.

So… You were saying? 😃 😃

Jaws PCM mono track
Time

JawsTDS said:

If there’s any interest in a preservation, I have both the Signature and 1995 letterbox LDs and can capture the raw PCM mixes. I also have the rare 2 hour cut of THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING, which was recently released on the Blu-ray, but was cut down by Universal and rescored due to licensing issues. I think a definitive JAWS Blu-ray could be made with the resources on this site.

The original was 3+ hours.

Are you sure you have the original?

Sea of Love (Thrillers Edition) - VHS. Extended version of the film. Nothing noted on the box. Contains deleted scenes from tv version but uncensored.

I can’t find anything on a Thrillers Edition, Could it be the Collectors Edition?

Nope.

I own it and did a transfer of it. It was released in the late 90’s.

Do you still own it to maybe take a few screenshots of the slipcase for release information?

I think I still do. There’s nothing on the slipcover that says anything about it being extended. Hell, even the runtime is wrong.

There seems to be an obvious answer in all this that is very sensible and also everyone wins in some way…

I think Mike may have finally found the solution to “I want”, “you want”, “we want” ok rip up the contracts let’s do this!

It’s a fair call on the cat and mouse play, well done!

Going back last year some conference, there was a guy from Sony going on about 4k and HDR and stuff and where things are headed for home video. I said to him “But like a lot of these films don’t look the same anymore…” He said “oh it’s just a bit of fun” so there you have it, a bit of fun. Well perhaps you can give them a better version of serious fun 😉

Considering the Sony discs are, by far, the best UHD discs out there…

Pearl Harbor - Director's Cut in HD
Time

alexp120 said:

This link is a comparison between the theatrical cut and the director’s cut.

https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1971890

The long and the short of it is this:
The director’s cut is approx. 69 seconds longer than the theatrical cut and there are scenes exclusive in the Director’s cut. However, some scenes from the theatrical cut have been extended and others have been trimmed.

???

I know the differences. That’s not what I was asking about. Did you read what I wrote?

Pearl Harbor - Director's Cut in HD
Time

HBO is now showing the Director’s Cut in HD, supposedly. I don’t have HBO but this would be the first I’ve ever heard of it airing in HD ever. Does anyone have it and could check it out?

Would be nice to do a combo of it and the official blu to make a great looking HD version. Not sure how you’d go about making it 23.976 instead of 29.97, though.

Anyone?
