Choose-your-LD Preservation!
Time

Okay, so here’s the deal:

I’m buying a couple of laserdiscs from this seller on eBay:

However, I don’t have enough to qualify for free shipping, so, which of these is most worth preserving?

For your reference, I’m already buying A Charlie Brown Christmas and The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Hateful 8 Roadshow Cut

So, semi-related news: a 4K version of The Hateful Eight has leaked online. It’s reported as having a frame rate of 25fps, so it could be victim of PAL speedup. I’m don’t think it’s the longer cut, but I’ll report back soon with confirmation one way or the other.

After looking at screenshots of the 4K release, the colors on the 4K are much better (snow is white, for example). If it is indeed at 25fps and sped up, it might be worth slowing it down, even if it is just the regular cut (and it appears it is).

Can someone PM me this?

Here are the overture and intermission images. Note that unlike your version, mine has a red fade in the black area, which I don’t think is correct. The Overture version was made by a nice redditor in the Photoshop Requests subreddit, and I adapted it for the Intermission image. Mine are also 1920x1080.

Overture

The sky isn’t correct, but other elements of this are quite good. I’m already using some minor details from the horses and carriage in an update to my version.

Just ordered the BD to try my hand at this. Does anyone have a video reference source for this version? I’ve already recreated the overture card using a couple of images I found online, but would need an original source for color reference, the remainder of the pre-film title cards, and timing.

From what I’ve been able to gain about this, it was edited differently and featured a new scene as well as a few extended ones. I’ve also heard something about a leaked screener - was this the Roadshow or Multiplex version?

The Dark Knight - EE Reduction and Original Color Timing

The colors look a bit off in the pencil scene. It looks like it should be graded to more of a teal color, as per the screener, but seems to appear more blue after it is run through DrDre’s CC tool. This causes some inaccuracies in flesh tones as well as costume colors.

Here’s a comparison between the original scene and a correction from the BD I performed to show you what I’m talking about:

The “table scope” part is referring to the rotoscope and minor CC of the table from the screener correction, as the table appears to have been digitally altered for the Blu-ray. This caused unnatural grain in areas, and is the likely cause of the fringing near the table’s upper edge.

SpongeBob SquarePants - 1997 Pilot Debut Reconstruction

To anyone who wanted to see this in HD:

I put some footage together & cut a version of the Spongebob pilot from the official master (no CC) & matched it to the VHS here (pass sboyahoy):

It’s not final, or pretty by any means, but (once I correct a few things) it will probably be the best this can look and sound while being accurate to the sources given.
