Paranormality: Why we see what isn't there - Wiseman, Richard

Really interesting book about how and why we are so easily fooled by so-called paranormal events. It even comes with instructions on how to fool your friends, create illusions etc.

PM me your email. And don't make me look bad.  8)

You don't need to. The SE DVD and BD is a mixed down version of the 5.1 soundtrack, complete with botched gunshot sound effects etc. You should use the 1999 MGM DVD mono audio track and splice in the the mono audio from the SE DVD for the additional scenes.

Ah right, I forgot there was a mono track on the SE. That would make it a lot easier.

How do I get invited? There might be a complimentary copy of LeoneNut's Rome Premiere Cut for the generous inviter.  >:D

Well I can't really invite people willy nilly. Due to this being a private site they are very strict with maintaining a 1:1 ratio or better. Do you know what this means?

Although I never played it I think Red Dead Revolver contained some Morricone music.
Red Dead Redemption is most likely the better game though.

I can confirm that Dolby AC3, DTS etc are all lossy audio formats. In the case of these films with old mono tracks, I'm not sure how much of a difference it will make but I'm a bit of a purist and would like the full (i.e. lossless) audio information available.

Yeah it might not be a huge difference. I was thinking that if I can get my hands on the leonenut version I'll just extract the audio from it and use that. It will be a little weird when characters suddenly speak italian but I guess one has to make a compromise.
I was also thinking that converting 5.1 into mono might get messy and not worth the trouble.

lol that's better than what I got going here. No seeders = 0 kb/s. I'm not that well versed in torrent transfers, does it make a difference where I downloaded the file from? If so, can you send me via PM your link? I'd really appreciate it.

I got mine from a place simply known as "x264". It's a private tracker, invite only.
And it does make a difference where you download it from, some sites may have more seeders than 0 ;)

I'm not familiar with mac whatsoever so I can't help you sorry.
As for the editing it's really just about getting the timecodes and then copy pasting I think. Maybe if you can get a hold of LeoneNut, he can give you the codes.

I was not aware dvd audio was lossy. Are you sure about that? I've always been under the impression that AC3/DTS was lossless.

Haven't started download yet. Don't think mine will go very fast, only has 1 seed.
Started it now. Getting 3-500kb/s. Gonna take a week to finish utorrent is telling me lol.

Yeah it's the SE track I assume as the first dvd only had mono track I think?
Optimal release would be this video together with the mono track and using the 5.1 converted into mono for the extra scenes. I honestly thought about doing it myself once but it's too much work.

Sup people. I don't know if you remember but a long time ago we had a discussion about how the italian bluray looks much better than the mgm release(some might disagree).
Anyway, there's a guy who has taken the trouble of encoding it, cutting it to match with the english audio track and released it.
I can't tell you where to go to get it but look for the release named The.Good.the.Bad.and.the.Ugly.1966.1080p.BluRay.DTS.x264-SuBoXoNe.

I'll report back on how it looks once I finish downloading(it's 22gb).

Off-Topic Discussion / The Irishman (2019)

Saw in the paper yesterday that Marty is shooting a movie next year called "The Irishman". And it will feature De Niro and Joe Pesci. There's also a rumor that Pacino and Harvey Keitel will star in it as well.
It's based on the story of the mob hitman Frank Sheerman who among other things was involved in the murder of Jimmy Hoffa.

That's all the info they had.

Film Locations / GBU Location Shots Juxtaposed With Scenes

There's many gbu location videos floating around but I thought this one was particularly well done:

Enjoy :D

A shame. She was quite good.

You might be right Cusser. It's still not done in a convincing way though.

There were some sets used Stanton but as far as I know the majority of the movie was shot in Mexico.

Finally saw this a few weeks ago. Been meaning to watch it for years just never got around to it.
I think Walter Huston was superb, what a character!
For me he made the movie worthwhile. Bogart was ok but his character was a scumbag and the way he talks really annoys me.
The only real flaw I think was how Bogart's character almost literally went crazy overnight, seemingly forgetting that his partner saved his life the day before.

Will definitely watch this again in the future.
