Chariots of Fire 30th Anniversary Edition

post #1 of 84
Thread Starter 



Includes soundtrack June 18th


That score in lossless will be outstanding
post #2 of 84
While I liked the music, I've never been able to get into the movie but might try it again, as it has been awhile. You are right that the musical score should be awesome.

Thanks for the alert!

A fine movie, hope it's done justice for this release.

Well 2012 Olympics might have something to do with this announcement...but I'm not complaining! Love this movie, hope it really shines on blu-ray. It deserves it.

Love Vangelis and the soundtrack but I've never actually seen the movie, maybe it's time.

Actually, it's a very good movie.

Ouch, not good. Totally degrained and digital looking.

In the third pic, guys' hair in the foreground lack all detail.

Is my sarcasm detector off today? Because I hope that's what this is.

If not, it's pretty dumb to make a comment like that based on a 480p screencap, even dumber if you didn't click on them to get the 480p cap and are just looking at them in the body of DVDMike's post.

When I click I get 730x430. Maybe a browser issue? If so, sorry to Jimbotron!

After clicking the image, you have to right click > view image. Then it will be full res in firefox.


If these shots are accurate, I would say there is definitely some DNR going on here. Just look at the guy's face in the first shot, very waxy surfaces next to sharp edges. Not to mention the total lack of grain throughout that should show up on 35mm. Compression rate seems awful, too, you can see blocks of pixelation where fine detail should be.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking since I did not know the source. Thx.

I did that and when going back and doing it again it didn't behave the same way - I got small images. Viewing it in a new tab worked. Weird.

edit: I pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk and the BD page said 9 GBP but when I put it in my cart it was 7.50 GBP. With shipping 10 GBP compared to Amazon.com's pre-order price of $28.95. I just realized the price difference is probably due to the VAT.

US is being released by WB and UK by Fox. I wonder if they will look any different.

Links seem to be broken..
edit: seems that site doesn't like direct links for some reason. in firefox, if you select the URL text and hit enter it loads the image.
Looks pretty excellent, to my eyes.

You own them now mister. Teehee.

Awe, give him the benefit of the doubt. His screenshots are the real deal. BFI/Fox probably saw the negative response from this thread and remastered it really quick before pumping them out in full production. wink.gif

When you get that error, reload the page by selecting the URL text box and hitting enter. Worked for me (on firefox)
