So then do you agree that Lucasfilm does in fact set the bar for quality home releases?

How can you call the Star Wars releases, reference quality releases, crap and then say that you're not a Lucas hater? Doesn't make any sense.
post #396 of 541
Its called being objective, you may want to look it up
post #397 of 541
I'm not objecting to anything though.

I just find reading your posts difficult because I just don't know if you're trolling me frown.gif
post #398 of 541
LOL you really need to look the word objective up.

Tell you what I will do it for you

As for Star Wars looking right

If you deny that you may need to take a look at yourselves.

Anyway my terminator will be here Saturday at the latest.

Okay, so something based on facts. I.e. there's no black crush or that other stuff, hence Star Wars OT being reference quality releases cool.gif

That is simply parroting, with nothing to back it up, whereas others have brought plenty to help inform you and dispel erroneous information.

Thus far your posts indicate a lack of knowledge on the various issues and topics that pertain to Terminator and other pertinent subjects.

LFL is not infallible and and what is really infuriating is that many let their fanatical adoration for the films to cloud objective evaluations of the released product.
If you had actually and objectively read the various links provided thus far you would be singing a different tune.

In regards to Terminator I hope this is indeed the transfer with the same quality results found with Aliens and Titanic.

Thank you for your helpful post.

There's still isn't black crush or haloing as a result of dnr (I mean Lowry did work on them, hence the reference quality).

My judgement isn't clouded actually, I don't really like the Original Trilogy (I do think he made several improvements with the PT however), I bought the blu rays for their reference quality (and for the PT). (I do like and appreciate the work and effort of the awesome audio and stunning picture quality).

I'm not going to buy into any unsubstantiated heresy either.

I thought something was hinky with your posts, but now you've given us proof. The mere fact that you prefer the PT over the OT proves that your judgment is indeed faulty! Oh well, just another sycophant exposed...

I... wow... I'd heard rumours that people existed who liked the prequel trilogy more than the original, but I never thought they truly existed...
post #405 of 541
Maybe he worships Lucas as a god, would explain a hell of a lot
post #406 of 541
...what's with the negativity?

Anyone with 20/20 vision and good hearing ability should be able to clearly tell the reference quality of the Star Wars BDs. I mean Lowry did a lot of intricate work to get them looking so much like their theatrical counterparts. ROTS is one of the best BDs available to date (I would put Avatar, Aliens and Predator UHE just behind in terms of reference material).

Lucas is an exceptional filmmaker. I just think what he's done and continues to do is simply unmatched due to the high quality of Lucasfilm releases.

I apologise, I missed this part of your post.

I do hope it's like Aliens. I can't actually comment on the Titanic release, as I don't really gel well with that film. (I watched it once back on vhs and it made me think of men frown.gif )

But if Lowry did indeed work on Titanic I'm sure it's up there with Star Wars and Aliens.

Is that seriously the example you're gonna use to illustrate the painstaking quality of the SW sets? It takes no "intricate work" to get a movie shot digitally (in 1080p) and mastered digitally to look like its theatrical counterpart.
Let's take the one prequel that actually needed work: you really think The Phantom Menace is "reference quality"? Of course, that is assuming your reference to Predator UHE is a joke.

I think all 6 films are of reference quality (hence why I bought the set despite not really liking the OT (I just don't think the story, acting and effects work is that good, especially compared with the PT).

Why is Predator UHE a joke? I have both versions of it on BD, but I don't think Lowry worked on UHE, though whoever did, they did come close to matching Lowry's top tier quality. The older Predator release was ruined by a lot of video noise which UHE corrected (thankfully).

While you keep digging, I'll contact Australia and tell them to expect you...

LOL! this is too funny! an exceptional filmmaker! He even managed to grant us his latest epic a few months ago....wait for it....Red Tails! Exceptional film!


Predator UHE...as in Ultimate House-of-wax Edition?


Oh well...
post #417 of 541
Supersonic395 is actually just trolling you guys for sport.
He makes it obvious he's just having some fun with you guys, you can tell by what he says specifically about some of the titles he's mentioned.
post #418 of 541
WOW!! eek.gif Amazing picture quality on the new Lowry Master! I can't believe how bad the old transfer looks....geez. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy!!
post #419 of 541
Thanks for the comparisons NagysAudio and to Heinz at br.com for the remaster caps.

Looks great, looking forward to its US release.

PS SS395, you are not being picked upon for being new but for being wrong. Also we try to attribute sources.

There is no question the new one has vastly superior definition and clarity and looks to retain grain. But I really dislike the tealed look.

My question is this... Has the 5.1 remix been fixed? Not only did it sound like garbage, with the sound effects all being replaced, it was missing a lot of the musical score. They forgot to include some of thelaters of music in the final mix and it was painfully distracting. Some of the best music moments were missing.

Without the music being restored and the sound effects being fixed (and that includes the stupid idea of using the Skynet airship sounds from T2 instead of the original) I have zero interest in spending a dime on this.

Why they won't include the original mono is beyond me. It is maddening.
