Peanuts Specials: Coca-Cola Product Placement Restorations
Time

I managed to get the 16mm version synced visually to the Blu-ray, but there’s a strange audio anomaly. The soundtracks go in and out of sync.

I actually encountered this same problem trying to create my own restored audio track - the version released on record and CD is different to the original broadcast soundtrack. For that version, the music was rerecorded from the magnetic master, which features longer versions of most songs. This is the reason for the painful cut - in the original version, the chorus finished that part of the verse, only leaving out a few unnecessary lines when it occurred.

My guess is that this was done for the 2008 release, as I have an earlier DVD version which did not have this issue.

The sales were ending, so I ended up getting those two I previously mentioned and ISAR Star Wars.

Ghost Story was a bit above my price range and available cheaper elsewhere on eBay. The latter is also true for Cujo.

There’s a new listing though, with a bit less of a deadline:

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Pick-any-10-laserdiscs-choose-your-own-collection-1-000s-in-stock-FREE-SHIPPING-/331872532352?nav=SEARCH

That’s a pretty good price for 10 discs. If there’s anything worthwhile in that list, I’d gladly preserve it.

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?

Hateful 8 Roadshow Cut

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.

Intermission

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?
