RoboCop: TV Edit HD Restoration
Time

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.

Night Hawks Sylvester Stallone Alternate TV Version
Time

I have noticed that a German retailer is releasing a Blu Ray of Sylvester Stallone’s Movie Night Hawks on Blu Ray come March

https://www.amazon.de/Nachtfalken-Mediabook-Blu-ray-Sylvester-Stallone/dp/B07LDFDC1G/ref=pd_sbs_74_2/260-8426697-8477551?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07LDFDC1G&pd_rd_r=a6695ed4-0e1b-11e9-b2e4-3f90368f41c0&pd_rd_w=mtrcB&pd_rd_wg=DLpxW&pf_rd_p=823c2db5-0a4d-474e-99ed-5858cc6a4d7b&pf_rd_r=CSZ4V9MB72FKVY35XWH8&psc=1&refRID=CSZ4V9MB72FKVY35XWH8

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.

The Predator The No Dam Dogs Edition V2
Time

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_UAygoUIEM

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.

Hello

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.

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)

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.

Season 2 teasers are from unknown DVD source, they are missing off the UK DVD’s and the Blu Rays but I was trying to trace every release I could and was surprised to find these intact.

The UK DVD’s on season 3 have the teasers but think the blu rays they are missing.

Some of the tv showings across Forces TV on the 1st set of showings was missing some of the teasers across a lot of the seasons.

The missing scene from the pilot I have included is VHS and my quick edit of it is a mix of HD and VHS I have tried mixing as a lot a little silly seconds missing of the blu ray such as a longshot of the plan taking off, additional shot of Lynch, Murdock howling then of course his singing.

The VHS has the jumping jack flash playing all the way through this scene but the blu ray when it does cut back in the music is removed so the back ground noise is silent whilst face and Murdock are talking, this scene is cut different ways on different DVD and blu ray releases.

Guys I have uploaded all season 2 teasers and the deleted scene and a quick fan edit from the pilot onto everyone’s favourite organ, the fan edit of the scene was just a very quick attempt at using the sound source from the VHS to mix it with the HD footage however I’ve had to use a few seconds from the VHS due to missing footage, more could be used but as said it’s just a quick attempt.

Good news, I looked into the Italian DVD sets of the A Team and the music is in place to a degree.

The pilot movie has Jumping jack flash music playing but cuts a few seconds of Murdoch singing it, I assume the dubbing artist didn’t wish to sing, strange how this would play out on the English audio track on the DVD, I downloaded off a fan site the Italian version so no English option but the DVD does so it is better than a VHS rip.

As previous the UK VHS has the full scene that I have, I could upload to You Tube or just the scenes in question and do a private torrent for you?

Assault on Beverly Hills Italian DVD has all the music intact also, there is a poor You Tube version of this but the sound isn’t great and the frame rate is slightly sped up, just search A-Team stagione 3 episodio 24

The Italian DVD’s are out there, season 1 and 4 easy to find but season 3 or Stagione 3 is a little harder amazon have it but very expensive unless you can find it other ways.

It may be worth checking the dutch and german version as these are more available and cheaper classed as staffel 3 or DAS A Team and have English audion tracks they are under amazon.de.
