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?
the silent ben hur is good.
decent, but they tend to cost more than most other labels, I think the only criterion I have is the Carnival of Souls, good spook movie.
i think I still have mine.
that was a fun movie.
just did a double take they look cropped as well.
this bluray may be of interest, although it’s obviously a bootleg
well taking them out and adding them is easy, just use mkvtoolnix, keeping audio sync after editing is another matter.
This week my father and I saw Soylent Green on Blu-ray, and I was baffled by the review it was given on the blu-ray.com website about the video quality. The reviewer gave it a 3/5 rating and criticized the gritty look of the movie, but personally I thought the movie looked gorgeous and had the exact look a low-budget movie from the early 1970s is supposed to have.
sounds like the review for the animated lord of the rings, the reviewer complained that “it hadn’t gotten the vibrant touch up of disney blurays, and was grainy like a 70’s movie.”
Huh??? It was made in the 70’s, basically he complained that it was too close to how it looked originally.
