Just had a hunt for some, found some german versions with german audio. 720p 16:9, is this what you have?

Edit: They are pillarboxed, but they do seem Highish quality.

Edit2: On closer inspection, they look to come from the same SD masters as the DVD and dont have much more detail.

They have English audio, I can cap later if needed?

Slipstream 1989 (WIP)
Time

2.0 out of 5 starsSlipstream is pan & scan 1.33:1.

To clarify some possibly confusing information -
The transfers are upscaled, yes.
They are from old video transfers, with dirt and other defects.
Two of the films, Creature and Incident at Raven’s Gate, are widescreen (appearing to be about 2.35:1) while Slipstream - arguably the most wanted in widescreen - is pan & scan 4:3, 1.33: 1 (only the opening titles are presented “letterboxed”).

I’ve now had the chance to sample the Matrix theatrical DTS and compare it to the BR audio. To me the two sound very similar with any perceived difference possibly being due to levels as hairy_hen mentioned.

That being said, there’s something about knowing I’m listening to the original theatrical audio that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling and an outstanding job has been done syncing it to the BR so this will remain my preferred track for watching the movie. Many thanks Jetrell Fo for making this available. 😃

Seeing how the BD & CINEMA tracks are ± identical, and keeping in mind cinema DTS is presumably worse than consumer DTS, which is about half the quality as AC3 at the same bitrate, it is incredibly daft to listen to the cinema track when BD AC3 is available because you’re listening to much reduced quality for no benefit.

Oh, and thanks hairy_hen for explanation/comparison.

Home mixes are normally nearfield and remixed.
These are the original mixes and therefore better and not watered down.

By the way if there’s any Britons here, Alien is playing in 70MM at the Prince Charles Cinema in London on the 1st, 3rd, and 7th of June (details here). If you go please take notes and then tell us how it compares to the Bluray colour grading, contrast, and black levels. 😃
Had tickets but had to miss it sadly, I saw aliens there tho

Damn, the German listing on eBay says it’s still 4:3 😦

Info: Terminator 2 - in search of the theatrical sound mix...

Has anyone compared the latest Lionsgate blu-ray transfer? (Studio Canal+ here in Canada) Apparently they’ve managed to release it with a minimal amount of DNR so it looks to be an improvement. I considered buying this version but didn’t want to buy it yet again on blu-ray with the T2 3D having been announced for release this year. I’m hoping for a new 4K transfer along with the original theatrical mix but I doubt we’ll see the latter.

It’s the same master comparable to the UK disc

Isn’t that story from Edwards a bad sign?

I mean, it seems to confirm that no one is working on a theatrical restoration.

Or not

He doesn’t state what version it is. It could very well be the SE.

The thought was it’s not the SE not the GOUT but between
