Just looked at the copy of the Good the Bad and the Ugly on UK Netflix and it’s the extended version and appears to have the same colours as the Mondo version no horrible yellow tint.
So it’s the Netflix extended cut with the original film structure (chapters and all) and an overture & intermission?
Indeed, structured to represent the closest we will get to the Roadshow version but as the Netflix version has more footage than the roadshow version this was my take on a new extended version but all the chapters and cutaways representing the theatrical version but with added overture and intermission to break up the 3hrs 13mins run time
I have completed a fan edit based off the extended version, theatrical and roadshow elements with overture, intermission.
This is with new Weinstein logo and Cinerama title cards alongside the overture and intermission, this is a V2 I shared version 1 on everyone’s favourite organ anyone wants to experience the closest version we will get until the Roadshow version comes out drop me a PM, the run time is 3hrs and 12mins all in.
link available for anyone via PM for those wanting to see it.
guys this was released as a V1 on another site a private tracker just think of your spleen.
However I removed this after a few days due to some members starting an argument over a plot story revolving around the young boy on the movie that had no relevance to this fan edit.
I completed V2 with a few more trims here and there removing the silly invisible ball but due to the above incident I didn’t upload it.
I have no issues sharing this if someone messages me how to do this without it costing me to set some form of shared drive up if it’s free more than happy to do this.
Thank you very much for the link, watched today had a giggle at the thoughts of the ITV version that I remember.
Have to offer some feedback the editor did a great job of the sound mix however the mix of alternative footage through me out of the movie, some of the quality of the alternate footage was quite poor and didn’t mix well for a HD restoration I understand you may be limited trying to copy the TV version but perhaps create your own take on the TV version with your own edits in HD this may work better, after all the TV version is infamous for the alternate sound dubbing not necessarily the footage.
Reducing the violence via edits in HD could be an easy option and then adding the alternate sound dubs for the bad language could be the way forward.
sounds great for a restoration always had a giggle at TV edits are you uploading anywhere?
I have noticed that a German retailer is releasing a Blu Ray of Sylvester Stallone’s Movie Night Hawks on Blu Ray come March
It states is a Blu Ray and 2 DVD edition containing an alternate TV version?
I’ve never heard of this having an alternate TV version, yes it was heavily cut in the UK on its first few TV airings but has been uncut last several years
The US Blu Ray was lacking on decent extras and this hasn’t been released on UK Blu Ray as yet so would be very interested if this alternate TV version has additional footage as we all know this was butched by Universal on its original cinema release but is wide known for having lots of additional material shot that was cut out.
If anyone has any info would be very keen to know.
I have just finished my re tweaked V2 of The Predator V2, this differs from the initial version hosted on everyone’s personal organ, I removed that due to arguments from members of an off topic subject matter which distracted from the fan edit.
The purpose of this fan edit is to foremost remove every aspect of those Dam Predator Dogs.
The movie runs at a lean 87 mins and removes or tightens 100’s of areas of the movie with small and big edits.
To start with I isolated the score to 6 streams so i could remove some of the over used areas of the original Predator music cues.
I then went to work with the following.
The predator crash landing stream lined
The hostage opening and bad lines trimmed, tightened
The predator first encounter trimmed, tightened, Predator tech/ball removed V2
Helicopter search tightened
Mckenna posting items removed all aspects of invisibility and the predator tech/ball removed V2
Boy walking home trimmed
Mckenna introduced to the loonies trimmed
Casey introduction to Stargazer Head Quarters trimmed removed silly jokes
Introduction to the Predator trimmed removed one liner from original movie
Predator escape trimmed, tightened
Loonies on the bus all bad jokes trimmed, tightened
The chase reorganised and trimmed
New Predator coming to earth, new subtitles added V2
The predator attacking soldiers cut
Casey in Hotel trimmed
McKenna and his wife with loonies, cut, trimmed and re organised V2
The new Predator with his dogs trimmed
Search for his son heavilly reorganised, cut and scenes added V2 see link for sample
This area is used with areas from Aliens vs Predator Requiem but all dogs removed
McKenna, Casey and Nebraska interrogation reorganised, trimmed and cut to remove The Predator dogs
The Spaceship compound trimmed, tightened, cut and reorganised
McKenna giving his son invisibility ball cut V2
Compound joining forces, trimmed and cut to remove Predator dog
Explosion trimmed to remove Predator dog
Fire fight in forest trimmed when they get killed they just die not silly expanded deaths
Spaceship fall trimmed
Final fight trimmed with Predator all areas of invisibility removed
End of the movie redone to remove what ever the hell that Predator tech thing was, this is redone leaving a lot more to the imagination without seeing what was in the casket.
If I can figure out to share this for free with anyone more than happy to try.
Didnt have the success I wanted but this looks great, more so a dream come true, looks like you have done a lot of work.
Please do let me know when and where I can get this when you are finished, sure beats my colour pan and scan version.
Would love to see this and the work you have done to restore it, afraid ive had no joy getting the colour corrected version of this.
Yes but its also available via other means hence the comments above.
I was after the widescreen full colour version.
No One Really have Dracula 79 pan&scan VHSrip please!!!
Thanks for the PM, the only widescreen release is an old TCM tv broadcast on a foreign tv network The pan and scan english version is available via everyones favourite organ. This is from a pre cert VHS better quality than the one pointed out. Guess the letterbox version is still the holly grail.
Been hearing really great things about this! Love the idea of the trilogy turned into “digestible” series!
Would you like the links?
If possible could these be sent to me as well, love to see this edit
This is my take on the deleted Finn elevator scene
Yes that’s the original colour version Pan & Scan as no widescreen version in original colour is out there, but should be a better version than the pan & scan VHS I have.
I got this: https://pin.it/2wbi45vadgltui
Do you have the pan and scan version as apparently this is the only natural colour version barring the old VHS pan and scan which I have.
I have the original laserdisc, but haven’t had a chance to unpack my player and test it yet. I aim to create a re-colorized HD version as soon as I have time (currently renovating my basement as my home studio)
Does anyone have the original version of this movie still via laser disc? I would love to see this version, I can see from e bay there are lots of copies floating around some widescreen some pan and scan for only a few dollars but I live in the UK and have no way of viewing it.
Can’t wait for this to be released
I did the same with the forces version. Pretty sure its the section were Murdoch is cooking but does quick cut aways to time with a missing soundtrack i.e cooking food flipped, customers, receipts, food flipped, Murdoch cooking ect pretty sure its that part but all music gone doesnt quite look right. Checked my UK Gold recorded version and its the same and thats a few years apart. Looks like Spike stopped at season 2 although they were syndicated versions cut with missing intros.
Best bet may be US or other European TV broadcasts.
Sounds very interesting.
