Do you like the sepitone for the kansas scenes or reg black and white?


I did like the sepitones (It was OK) until I got the first 1980 VHS release that has the original black and white and to me IT LOOKS MUCH BETTER!!!!!!!!!

They took out the sepitone stuff in 1949 FOR A REASON .. Most likely they didnt like it either and thought BW looked better.....

Its sad in 1989 it was put back in but its no surprise..... The 80s is when the world died in my opinion....

In 1949 they knew WHAT GOOD WAS but in 1989 thier minds were clouded and thier judgements not thier own and its sad........


Which do you prefer??

I think the "Breathe" passage is very nice but I don't like being startled by the alarm clocks. By the time we get to "Money" the sync is pretty much lost. By the time we get to "Brain Damage" (got to keep the loonies on the path) I've lost interest.

Bring on the flying monkeys or go home.

Please stop using VHS as a reference source for what you believe movies are supposed to look like.

For the record, sepia is the only correct version of the Kansas scenes in The Wizard of Oz. Those scenes were sepia when the movie was released in 1939. The filmmakers were very particular about color and went to extraordinary lengths to make the transition from sepia to full color work. During the famous shot where Dorothy opens the door onto Oz, the inside of the house was painted sepia (not black & white), and the actress standing-in for Dorothy wore a sepia colored dress. After the camera moves past her and leaves the house, Judy Garland steps into frame wearing a blue dress.

Some theatrical re-releases starting in 1955 and all VHS releases up through 1989 incorrectly displayed these scenes without the sepia tint. This was not an artistic decision, but rather an act of laziness and cheapness on the part of the distributor. The sepia tint was restored for the movie's 50th anniversary, and all releases after that point have been correct.

Do you really watch a lot of VHS still? I can't even watch dvd's anymore.

As far as WOZ I had no idea there were 2 color versions. Great movie though. And the pink floyd thing was fun once, but pretty cool none the less. I've heard there is a pink floyd that works with the last 20 minutes of 2001 also, but never tried it.

Dude believes that VHS is the pinnacle of home theater technology and that everything that came afterwards is crap.

He is serious about this. Look through his posting history. It's pretty much all he ever talks about.

When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

Usually the VCR they take them out of ruins the tape where they took it out (There are lines where its been taken out) Its very sad people didnt care more about this beautiful technology and try to be more careful with it......
