yeah, I own a number of mill creek dvds and some other oddbll “value brands” they all have that sort of problem. Mill creek doesn’t do any sort of quality work. I swear they’ll take multi generational video masters from the prehistoric age and capture them. no high quality releases from that company, just stuff that would otherwise not exist.
I used to use windows back in the xp days and prior, then I installed 7, suddenly external hard drives quit being recogized, the modem driver wouldn’t work and it crashed to no end, since then I haven’t had any reason to use anything more than linux mint.
The November sale is here again and again I’ve gone a little overboard. I just ordered…
12 Angry Men
The Exterminating Angel
His Girl Friday
The Princess Bride
A friend and I might also go halvesies on the Zatoichi boxed set, since our access to the series dies with Filmstruck at the end of the month.
His Girl Friday is great fun.
I use OBS studio, main thing is to set which window you want to capture, otherwise bits of your desktop flicker through. play with frame rat a bit and it’ll give a pretty good recording.
I guess nobody wants this 35mm preservation because it’s not a disney movie. who cares if it hasn’t made it past vhs and laserdisc. we only preserve stuff that is out on dvd and bluray because the color or something is off.
just so everyone knows, there is a search for spock 35mm 1080p release already available, though a bit rough.
So I’m guessing nothing came of this. Would be incredible if it did though.
yes it would, which begs the question, how rare are prints of this?
how do you know which one is more accurate?
that would be one that would actually be worth some trouble.
I was just reading over the release notes for the first time, and the part about this being made from a special release print struck directly from the original negative, so we’re essentially working with an inter-positive?! YaY.
available only to donors, how is this different than selling copies than?
But you absolutely need to do a HD scan if you want to capture all the details that are on film.
A lot of people think wrongly that old films aren’t HD no need for blu-ray when those old films do look far better on blu-ray.
I knew a guy who made that basically made that same argument back when dvd first came out.
you realize 2 frames is less than 1/10th of a second, not enough to make a difference especially if the track is centered, that would make it within 1/20th. It’s fine. I don’t even notice track sync problems until it approaches 2/10ths out.
cease and desist on a crappy ancient game, and not the theatrical preservations going around? Go figure.
Earthbound 1981, just about the hardest burl ives movie to find anywhere.
Where to start, for a really creepy oldie, it’s hard to beat City of the Dead, and it’s hard to skip the original House on Haunted Hill. On the lighter side Little Shop of Horrors is a good option if you have kids, or a decent sense of humor. More recently, aka color era, I’ll probably re-watch Rituals 1977(sort of along the lines of deliverance) since it’s apparently getting a restoration for bluray.
pied piper of Hamlin 1957
yeah, I just moved so I know how long it can take. patience.
Oh happy days, soon the trilogy will be complete.
neat o, thanks for the youtube link, didn’t think to try there.
I recently acquired the empire strikes back adventures of luke skywalker, I don’t have a record player so I have no way to play it at the moment. I couldn’t find a modern release. Are there any preservations or is this something I need to look into taking care of myself. As I understand it’s essentially the the same story of the movies edited down to fit on an LP record with the cast doing the voices. Did they do the other two movies? all that I found on ebay is the empire strikes back. I hope somebody knows more about this than I do.
terrible. I mean tantrums?
i’ve seen both Nosferatu and birth of a nation once, for nosferatu, all I can say is dullsville, with birth of a nation, well the battle scenes were done well for the time, as for the rest of the movie, pretty ridiculous and impossible to believe.
the silent ben hur is good.
Which one, the 1903 one or the 1926 one?
