The "Is it in HD somewhere because I can't find it" thread.

Mark’s Down On Your Syntax said:

Okay, I’ve added The Limey to the list (sounds like a line from an old gangster picture!) as well as a couple of other titles. Just in the hope that somebody somewhere might know something we don’t.

“The Limey” was released on D-VHS (remember that format?) long ago. I have a 1080i transfer (that’s as far as D-VHS went) someone put online long ago, complete with commentary. The transfer isn’t all that great - ghosting galore and the like - but it’s high def if that’s all that matters.

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1966) remastered mono track (for 4K restoration + Mondo IT)

I believe they are different companies. However, 01 seems to have truck a deal where they're basically porting some Mondo discs, albeit with region coding.

Escape From New York [spoRv] *BD-25 RELEASED*

<p>Don't know why it happened, and why I have not spotted before release... it's a computer+human error, and I'm really sorry!</p>
<p><strong>This could not be considered minor, and should be fixed ASAP</strong>; as I have to re-encode it, is there anything else that should be adjusted? Grain, brightness, contrast etc.?</p>

I'm not at home right now but I seem to recall feeling like the LD audio is a bit out of sync in the second half of the film. The first half or so is fine, then it seems like it's by about 200-250 ms, which is just enough to be noticeable and annoying. Has anybody else experienced this? I swear it's there on my end. If I were at home, I'd find the approximate point where the drift starts and report back here.

That said, thanks! I do appreciate the hard work and can always do a manual sync on my own if necessary.

Dario Argento's Three Mothers.

Hello. I too have the Image LD, albeit elsewhere. It'll be awhile before I can dig it up. That said, there's a local guy who does great LD transfers, including digital out captures at 44.1kHz. I have several other LDs I need him to transfer. When I finally get a chance to get the remaining LDs I want ripped, I'll check back and see if anybody still needs a rip.


By the way, I have an unrelated request. Can anybody help me acquire a Japanese DVD? It's only available via third parties at Amazon Japan, so somebody would need to have it shipped to Japan and then ship it to me. (None of them will ship outside Japan.) I'm more than happy to pay all costs, plus a little extra for their time.
