They may have been discussed in separate threads...
What's the point? If there is no point then why even look in this thread or post here at all.
What's the point? The point is to gather all of the most film-like BD titles and list them all in one thread, instead of having them all in separate individual threads.
If you know of 'hundreds' of them but are too lazy to list some of them, then you are really not contributing here at all, but instead just nit picking at other people's suggestions.
If you know of 'hundreds' of them and refuse to list a bunch of them just because you think it is too much 'typing' then that is the same as you hording them and not wanting to share your knowledge of film like titles with this thread. If there are hundreds of these extremely filmic BDs out there and you 'KNOW' about them then it should be no problem for you to name like 10 or 20 of them without your pretty little fingers or brain getting numb from too much typing or thinking. If not then you are not contributing here at all and just taking up space in order to nit pick and argue with other people's suggestions.
Well, if you insist... here's some off the top of my head, limiting myself to only ones I've seen recently enough to feel confident recommending them. Some might have fleeting EE or the very occasional DNR.
Wizard of Oz
Gone With The Wind
The Red Shoes
The African Queen
Casablanca (remastered disc)
Sweet Smell of Success
Night of the Hunter (iffy on this one, looks somewhat noisy to me)
Bridge on the River Kwai
(the last 4 films unfortunately look like they're straining color out of very faded negatives)
Lawrence of Arabia
Jason and the Argonauts
Walkabout (overly soft)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Rocky Horror Picture Show
A Fistful of Dollars (the 4K restoration, only released in Italy)
the aforementioned Easy Rider, Taxi Driver, and The French Connection (remastered)
The Outlaw Josey Wales
The Evil Dead
Alien & Aliens (some Lowry tinkering going on but still a reasonable approximation of film)
Raiders of the Lost Ark (iffy on the colors)
Big Trouble in Little China
Wall Street (remastered)
Total Recall (remastered, somewhat iffy on the colors)
Jurassic Park 2 (good example of a filmlike transfer that is not very good)
Last of the Mohicans (like film in very dim projection)
Saving Private Ryan
The Thin Red Line
Braveheart (haven't seen it recently enough to be sure but it's worth mentioning)
I don't even know where to start with DI based films... Inglourious Basterds? No Country for Old Men?Edited by 42041 - 2/4/13 at 3:57pm
