31  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: The Great Silence aka Il grande silenzio (1968) on: November 10, 2017, 09:43:48 AM
No, just a little bonus gift. Before that Blu-ray was announced, some friends at another forum were so tired
of those old DVD's that we all threw in some dineros and we scanned my 35mm print, just for us...

Now it is just interesting to compare the look of the two masters - the new one for the Blu-ray,
and my 1969 print, which represents the look the film had when it played in theaters. Because
you almost never get the old 35mm theatrical-print-look on modern HD masters.
Just a gag... (the print isn't very good: scratches and missing/damaged scenes. But the colors
are still all there.). It has slightly more picture information - but only due to the fact that I masked
my Apple ProRes to achieve maximum image information (don't caring if unwanted stuff pops up
occasionally at the image border area...)
Fabulous idea. This release just got interesting.  Afro

Found that one on the Sad Hill Unearthed Facebook page:

They unearthed one of the trucks used in DYS during the bridge battle scene.
LOL! Way cool!  Afro

Yay too!


You were born in 1831? In that case, you should have seen a lot more films by now.

Oh, I see what you mean. My poster is in Japanese (which is pretty cool for me, given my long association with the place).

There are different posters? My T is grey.

Your Name (2016) - 7/10. Aside from Girls Und Panzer I have no interest in Japanese anime, and I was going to pass on this, but I read a review that suggested it might be a bit better than the usual thing. And it is. It starts out as a body-switch story, then after an interesting mid-plot twist develops into something else. It's kinda Freaky Friday meets Somewhere in Time meets Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. But animated. And with a comet. You could do worse.
Took the new blu for a spin and my first take stands. This is plotted and edited really well--there's not a moment wasted. The animation is first class (it even includes lens flares!). Certain shots of (barely) animated Tokyo brought tears to my eyes.

OK, my swag came in on Friday. I've been wearing the T-shirt . . . hmm, it's a pretty snug fit. I'm not sure I can wash it . . .

Pale Flower (1964) - 10/10. Best. Yakuza. Evah. Not Takemitsu's best score, however.

Then again, why try to persuade someone to like Peckinpah if it's not his bag?
Well, sometimes Youth is capable of development, maturation.

I doubt "Cross of Iron" will ever show on TCM in the US, although it might crop up on TCM elsewhere in the world. What you should do is import the Region B blu-ray and convince DJ to let you watch it on his player.
He's got a region-free player now so he doesn't need me at all. I agree, though, that Drink should get CoI on disc. Be sure to get one that has the Stephen Prince commentary.

The new CC Barry Lyndon looks just great on my monitor, no adjustment was required.

UPDATE: Just re-checked the specs. No mention is made of either a 4K or 2K scan, something they would certainly tout if it had occurred. The only reason NOT to do one of those scans would be that the source doesn't warrant it. Sure sounds like they used an older master to me.
