from LD, BD, DVD, HD-DVD, HDTV… even from VHS if there are no better sources! Your help will be highly appreciated.

 

If you think a movie should receive a [spoRv] treatment, post your ideas here, using BOLD for each movie title, and explain why and how it should be preserved or restored; as you can see, I much prefer sci-fi and horror movies, but I like action too!

    Hey man, first of all thank you for opening a blog to document all your projects, this is a bit easier than trying to find stuff on the forum. Second, I just wanted to ask, since I don’t see it listed in “Future Projects”, do you have the original mono italian soundtrack for The Terminator? Apparently the dvd releases, apart from being 5.1 remixes, have many chopped lines, words are missing. So if you have the Laserdisc or vhs, this would be another nice preservation. Same for the italian track for Blues Brothers, if you recall me asking about it, dvd and bd have a horrible remix.

      Hello Leonardo,
      great to know you are following my blog!

      I got The Terminator italian laserdisc, but, as the soundtrack is onto the analog track, and it’s one of the first italian laserdisc edition, overall quality seems to lack… but you know what? I watched it several years ago, so maybe it’s time to play it again… NOW! 😀 (I’ll post here quality considerations)

      About The Blues Brother: I have both the Pioneer and Philips italian laserdiscs, so no worry about this – it WILL be done, but as I’m pretty busy with other things (not restoration related) I can’t promise when it will be ready…

        Oh, and thanks for putting me on your partners list 😉

    Finished to watch it just few minutes ago… side 1 is mildly rotted for about the first half; there are some small “holes” (audio is missing for about half second), plus there are often cracks and pops, and also a kind of “helicopter” sound in a scene… side 2 is almost perfect, no noticeable noise floor.

    So, even if maybe it’s possible to clean it somehow, it will never be perfect… so, I think it’s better to try to find a clean copy, at least with the first side rot-free!

      If a rot-free disc cannot be found, what about a VHS source? Do you reckon it would be acceptable? We might have one on our hands (or close at hand he he)…

        Only if it has an Hi-Fi audio track, as the linear mono track found on the older VHS tapes is awful…
        Well, in this case, you should do all the work, though! 😀
