Info: 'Silence of The Lambs TV Edit' airing on THIS TV soon...
Time

As I had mentioned in my post in the ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: ABC cut’ thread, THIS TV is playing the Silence of The Lambs this month . It Played last night and I captured it on my DVR and checked it this morning for changes.

I believe it is the TV Edit as there is different dialog and the scene with Miggs is an alternate one as mentioned in IMDB " The scene where Miggs throws sperm at Clarice is shown from the different angle in the TV network version, so the audience can’t really see what Miggs is throwing.

For the TV network version, Miggs says to Clarice ‘I can smell your scent’ instead of ‘I can smell your c*nt’."

It will be Broadcast again a few more times this month if any one is interested.

suntech, do you pick up This TV from a cable system, or terrestrial antenna? Just curious.

My friend's disc came in the mail. It does look a little compress-ey, possibly due to being HSP, but that could also be due to compression on the broadcast end (even with OTA, digital TV signals aren't raw uncompressed video, are they?)

The worse news is that my computer's drive will not detect the disc. My set-top player will, so it's thankfully not a coaster. But if I can't read it on my computer I can't rip it, meaning that I'd have to ship the original disc out to whoever's doing the project instead of just sending them VOB files. I'll see if I can update drivers/firmware and get it to work, otherwise I guess I would have to mail out the original disc itself.

 Magnavox MDR513H Hard drive DVR. I haven't transferred to disk yet.  Cable source, it is compressed a bit and I noticed an occasional little stutter (the best way I can describe it is like this. If the scene shows some one walking it looks like they are playing it frame by frame at a high speed almost to be undetectable as the scene goes one frame at a time.) I have seen this before on low budget stations like they have a computer that doesn't have a fast enough hard drive and a older cpu so the system can not keep up with the program. does that make sense? As I mentioned it looks like the DC to me I did not watch it all the way through but I FF to all the relevant scenes and I did not notice anything different.

I had set this to record off of THIS TV on my DVR while I was away last week. I Got back late Tuesday and watched it last night. Is is the Directors cut that is available on the Collectors edition 2 disc DVD Set. Only I think it is 4x3 aspect ratio.  I was so hoping this was it. THIS TV is also showing Silence of the Lambs soon and I hope that is the TV Cut as that is a rare version. 

Has anyone had any luck finding a copy of the pre release press kit for WOK? I understand that that has some missing footage that if we could get a copy could be edited back in.

Last of the Mohicans - Original Theatrical Cut - BD-50 *RELEASED*
Time

Thanx for the kudos ;o)

As far as how many versions of the film there is... well, there are three:


-Original Theatrical Cut (what was released on R2/R3/R4 DVD, Laserdisc, and VHS)
-Director's Expanded Cut (what was released on R1 DVD)
-Director's Definitive Cut (what was released on Bluray)

Ok I have all three. I am wondering if there was a Cable version, Because for "Manhunter" I had , The VHS Version, The Version I taped from Showtime and I have the Anchor Bay Limited Edition 2 disk set with the badly transferred Directors cut. I suspect that Showtime broadcast the "Hybrid Version of "Manhunter" As it wasn't the same as either the DC or the Theatrical Version. I suspect the LOTM has similar versions floating around out there.

Great Work on the Cover. 

Has any one figured out how many versions of this film are out there? I know of two different soundtracks with different artists. I know I saw two different versions of this movie before the Directors cut was released. I know of three versions of Michael Mann's take on "Red Dragon",  "Manhunter". Just Wondering.

The Thing (1982) [spoRv] *BD-25 RELEASED*

Having just watched it , I must say great job! I only wish I had better equipment to view it on.

I have a early model Panasonic  BluRay player than can not read BD-R so I use my Sony PS3 which can read it but can not handle errors very well so every 3-5 minutes the picture freezes a while and then when it unfreezes it into the next scene so I lose some of the dialog.

I am using a just purchased Samsung SE-506 Burner and Verbatim discs and I have tried burning at different speeds but the problems are all ways at the same spots. So I went back and checked the source file,  loaded the movie from the file on my laptop and it played on my laptop. It plays OK but I noticed that every where I would have problems on the disc  the file had artifacts during those scenes it is just that my laptop could handle the errors better. 

Any Suggestions?

 

 

Problem solved! It was a bad DL. I DL it again to another HD and Burned it again and it is fine. Thanks all for the input.

Help: looking for... a few LaserDisc Audio Tracks
Time

zeropc said:

i'm looking for the following audio tracks in uncompressed pcm from the ntsc laserdisc of these movies

The Shinning (1980) - 144min Original Mono

The Abyss (1989) - Theatrical Cut (LTBX LD) and Director's Cut (THX S.E.)

Robocop (1987) - Director's Cut Criterion Collection

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) - Criterion Collection

Full Metal Jacket (1987) - Original Mono

A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Original Mono

Trading Places (1983) - Original Mono

An Officer and a Gentlemen (1982) - Original Mono

Robin Hood: King of Thieves (1991) - Theatrical Cut (found)

Amadeus (1984) - Theatrical Cut (THX LD)

Taxi Driver (1976) - Criterion Collection Original Mono

 

what do i want to do with these tracks?

i'd like to remux these audio tracks with the blu-ray or use them on the restoring of the theatrical cuts (robin hood and amadeus)

why do you want the laserdisc audio, isn't audio on the blu-ray good enough for you?

i prefer to watch the movies in their original audio mix and many blu-rays don't have them anymore. you only get access to 5.1 upmixes. i like to preserve the original mix if possible and laserdisc is a very good source for that.

the audio itself can be captured and then send to me. you don't have to edit the side change. separate files for each side of the laserdisc are also fine. please don't process them to 48khz. i'd do that myself after all syncing is done.

if you have any of these movies and can share the pcm audio, please send me a pm. once i receive the audio, it will noted here and you'll receive full credit, unless of course you don't wish so.

thanks in advance

I have the Abyss Special Widescreen Edition Stereo Extended Play 2 disc LD from Fox Video Both Analog and Digital tracks.  Will that work?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? - uncensored HDTV airing(s) (Released)
Time

Sorry that I am late to the party but I have just recently rejoined the forum. The phone number on the wall did exist . I have seen the stills and may still have the capture somewhere.  I have the some what uncensored LD and the completely uncensored VHS. I made a DVD of these back in the early 2000s and I will dig them up. It may take a dew days.

Idea: Bourne Ultimatum edit?
Time

Just saw the Bourne Ultimatum.
I paid about $10 for the 3 disk dvd set called the Bourne Files. It Has the 1st two movies and a third disk with extras (if you already have the movies don’t bother with this set) , in the package was a check for $7.50 for the purchase of a ticket to the Bourne Ultimatum. The early showing at the theatre near by was only $6.50 but I did not get a dollar back. So for $10 I got the 1st two movies on dvd and got to see the third. Not bad.
The new movie has an interesting concept as sequels go. The first two thirds of the movie takes place during a gap between the last two scenes of the last movie, the Bourne Supremacy. It is then that an expanded version of the last scene of the Bourne Supremacy is shown and the movie picks up from there. I feel a fan edit coming on as soon as the Ultimatum DVD hits.
