Goldeneye 35mm Scan and Preservation
Time

I have acquired the 1997 DVD of Goldeneye which has the Original Theatrical mix (from what I read online, the mix on the UE DVD and the Blu ray is a different mix) as well as the 2 channel Dolby Pro Logic Stereo Surround Mix (Most likely the same mix used on the 35mm Optical Dolby SR track) When I get the time I will upload both tracks to mediafire if anyone is interested

Goldeneye Workprint

CamSMurph said:

What an interesting thread. I am aware this workprint includes the original shot of Alec being shot in the head during the prologue.

they had to trim that shot because the MPAA would have given Goldeneye an R Rating. Screw the MPAA!!! This also happened with the Decompression Chamber Scene in License To Kill upon it’s release in 1989 , but fortunately it was restored on the Ultimate Edition DVD and the BD!!

Honestly, if you guys want SOTS in good quality the best idea would be to borrow the 16mm print and get it scanned on professional equipment at 2K or 4K. It would be much better quality than the 35mm scan, and you wouldn’t have misaligned dye layers that affect the 35mm IB tech prints of this film.

Here is a small sample of some 16mm trailers that were scanned at 2K. They come from a collector friend (they’re not my scans) so I’m not sharing the full thing and they’re downsized to 1080p, but just to give everyone the idea of the kind of quality you can get from 16mm:

can’t the scan be color corrected to match the original color timing?

Dirty Harry original mono mix

Oh, man, I hate to be the pain in the butt…

But it looks like you have some severe lossy compression in the lineage here. It shouldn’t look like this from good analog recording. Or you are somehow recording the Dolby Surround track instead Analog mono, idk…
It should go all the way up to 22kHz.

disc1

it is quite possible that the spectrogram is 100 percent accurate. Some audio sources don’t go above 16khz (it all depends on the source material)

DCP Back to the Future It looks fantastic, the best version. Thank you very much .

If you found the DCP on Spleen then there is also HD versions of parts 2 & 3 that were recently uploaded. They are not as good as the DCP… but much better than the official Blurays.

they are probably based off of the 2002-2003 DVD transfers, personally i have no issue with them, despite the grain! I wish i had an invite to myspleen, and blutopia!!1

Well, 4:3 HD projectors do exist, & a plus to having a 4:3 projector is you can always fit an anamorphic lens on the projector to change the aspect ratio to flat 1:85:1, and any CinemaScope ratio, & still be able to watch native 4:3 content ( such as TV shows shot in the 4:3 Aspect Ratio from the 50's to the late 90's (until producers started filming in the 16:9 aspect ratio) without having black bars at the side of the image.

I wish that a manufacturer still made 4:3 HDTV's ( they were made in the late 90's to about 2004-05)

 I almost bought one, It was a Phillips Projection HDTV  4:3 around 2002. I had just replaced my 1989 Pioneer Projection TV with a Phillips projector back in 2001 then the next year I saw what looked to be the Identical set except it was HD, It was open box and I could of gotten it for $400. But I could not bring myself to buy a new TV when mine was working fine. There were many 4:3 HD Projection sets early on and there were some Hi Def CRTs too.  I still prefer CRTs to LCD and Plasma. Pictures were Brighter and sharper. But the some of the new 4K sets are now getting there.

 

yeah, the new 4k sets look really good, the Samsung SUHD nano crystal tv's & the LG OLED tv's are ones I have my eyes on.

If LG or Samsung could make a 4:3 OLED or Nano-crystal LED, I believe that it would sell fairly well (mostly to Graphics & Imaging Industry, & Post Production houses)

Samsung makes Cinemascope TV's (Ultrawide Series), so I think that they could make a 4:3 set with no problem

Ghost Dad, Both Problem Child Movies, The Matrix Trilogy, Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, & so many others look better in full screen, because you get the entire image of the camera negative. The Matrix movies in Full Screen would look phenomenal on an IMAX screen. it would fill the whole entire screen with no black bars!!!

I also uploaded the Matrix Reloaded, & The Matrix Revolutions in an Open Matte Full Frame Version on Kickass torrents, here are the links * * * Links Removed ***

I uploaded a Pan & Scan DVD RIP of Timecop on Kick Ass Torrents, here is the link * * * REDACTED * * *
I ripped it from the 1998 DVD release, & it has 5.1 OGG Vorbis English Audio (Most Likely the Original Theatrical Sound Mix, the 2007-2008 remaster on DVD & HD-DVD most likely is a near field mix that was sweetened up.) & 2.0 French Audio.

This is probably the same transfer used for the 1995 Full Screen Laserdisc version.

Re-mixed audio tracks on video releases

The 20th anniversary DVD & Blu Ray Of Robocop does have a Dolby 4.0 track however (Which is the Original Audio, but Discrete 4 channel vs matrixed Dolby Stereo Pro Logic) so maybe that mix will sound better than the MGM 5.1 Remixed versions.

I've listened to the 4.0 mix. It's not much different from the 5.1 mix even though the 4.0 mix is listed as the original. I still prefer the Image & Criterion versions. One thing I'd like to know is if on the 4k release is the flashback shot of Joe and Emil when Murphy is operated on has been fixed. On the last release this shot came out very dark and you could hardly spot them.

 

 

The Image & Criterion DVD's probably come straight from the Dolby SR Master Tapes.
