‘The Legendary Cult Movie Known as ‘Turkish Star Wars’ Now Has a Smashing New HD Scan’…
‘NEW HD SCAN OF CULT FILM “TURKISH STAR WARS” TO PREMIERE MAY 4’…
this is good news, I read about the print being found several years ago, being only one known to exist, I guess it’s finally going to be seen by the public, a moment in history for the recovery of an nearly lost film.
they pulled the same stunt with the Carnival of Souls, just a flimsy deterrent splice in the 1080p version from here:https://archive.org/details/Night.Of.The.Living.Dead_1080p
wow, finally someone mentions something that has actual value on 35mm, seems everyone is worried about movies that will always be available in some form of HD. it doesnt actually look that bad for 1917, any luck on identifying the fighters or which match this was?
hmm tech talk…I’ll always use a phone that’s dumber than I am and preferably a flipper. No overpriced macs or modern versions of windows. I use a cannon vixia and an epson projector. That’s about the extent of the modern stuff worth mention.
As I understand, the new transfer features some things that were not in the original theatrical Version? In this case it may be under copyright law.
Whenever you rely on the PD status of a work, it is important to make sure that the particular version you want to use is actually in the public domain.
Later versions or adaptations (e.g., translations, revisions, annotated and illustrated editions) of PD works may be protected by a separate copyright.
That’s what they did for Beneath the 12 Mile Reef, the restored release is an extended cut, and of course they’ve yet to bother restoring the original.
I’ve wondered about how the dmca stuff works with public domain material. Although, I don’t know of too much enforcement beyond takedown notices.
Agreed! Another thing that frustrates me that I think about a lot is the fact that they won’t even allow the originals to be booked for shows. Most other films a cinema can select whether they want to screen a print or a DCP.
yeah me too, I was reading awhile back on a website for how to license movies, that star wars hasn’t been available because of rights issues, hopefully with disney buying out parts of fox that’ll change.
I recently aquired the german vhs of earthbound(1881 burl ives film) however I it doesnt play on my vcr so I’m assuming it’s in the PAL format. How can I identify PAL compatible players? or is somebody here already equiped to for such? The goal here is to sync it to the english broadcast recordings.
you might want to finish one before starting 5 or 6 more, just from an economics perspective.
well dnr is annoying when they do it, too many weirdos hate grain on 50 year old films, as for color timing, I think alot of them are imaginary. A lot of the “colour timing” projects I’ve seen are so subtle I personally can’t tell the difference. And wouldn’t old film reals of varied from batch to batch a bit to begin with?
yes, what is the status of this project?

Easier to answer than you think.
In order to copy the disc you must defeat a digital copy protection scheme. That is a crime by itself regardless of the movie’s copyright status.
Generally, but I bought the bluray of the Vampire Bat on bd-r from Film Detective, which was unprotected.
Also there are exemptions for fair use, but I’m guessing the poster wasn’t talking about those
According to several people at archive.org it depends. Just a new transfer and minor work generally don’t qualify, but major work might. some releases are clear on this matter for example my copy of “the brain that wouldn’t die” says specifically that the bonus features and the disc artwork are copyrighted. By the way archive.org has had a decent high definition copy of that long before the criterion release.
just because it’s on 35mm doesn’t make it worth anything.
eventually it’ll be on public trackers like everything else.
35mm “preservations” of stuff already out on bluray is getting ridiculous, eventually it may lead to trouble.
something wrong with the bluray?
Snow kill was a harcore 1990 tv drama that has never been released in any format other than laserdisc and vhs. Not even a bootleg until now. I got this from ebay while searching for collectibles and captured it with a vtop usb capture and a Pioneer cld-1080 player.
Description from the back
Taking on the wilderness can be brutal. But taking on the wilderness and a gang of killers is war!
David Duke(The Winds of War) and Patti D’ Arbanvill(Wiseguy) star in this thrill-packed adventure that crackles with suspense and sudden violence. The excitement begins when five urbanites on a weekend of survival training cross paths with murderous drug smugglers. One by one the city dwellers fall victim to the thugs. Finally only beautiful Lauren(D’ Arbancille, the lone woman in the group, is left to outsmart them.
maybe flagging the video with the “report” button? Just a matter of deciding what to flag it as.
I’d replace his voice with Major Burns from Mash, now that would be funny.
any reason why you can’t just go to the torrents and re-download it?
That line of Vader’s makes me think of Matthew 17:20:
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Technically anything would be possible through the Force, it’s the fabric of the universe after all, but actually mastering it to that level is another thing entirely. At least that’s how I’ve always understood it.
only thing I can think of is “the ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force”
as to what that refers, we can only speculate.
