    You’re not caving to anything. Nothing wrong with liking the new look. Or both. Same wonderful films. Great new taste…

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ The Godfather(s) -- in 4k UHD

    I would presume it to be a studio decision to make updates / changes. I had been told that the original concept was to follow the DCP, which perfectly aligned with Mr. Willis’ intent. It appears things became a bit more fluid. I’m certain that Covid had a part. But they’re still The...

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ The Godfather(s) -- in 4k UHD

    We’re talking about something extremely minor, to the point of being hardly noticeable by the general public. And that’s why it’s casually written. I had only mentioned it for clarity.

    One point of red is something hardly noticeable to anyone without a colorist’s eye. We sometimes speak in terms of a half point of density - which is almost non-perceptible. The Blu-rays are fine. It’s a matter of conversion of data files and color space. And even with a point here or there...

    Virtually the entire 1000 foot camera roll exhibits the problem. The film chip was left in because it was always part of an Academy Aware Best Picture.

    No. S35 camera negative. The director’s cut had only previously been finalized on video. We began with all new 4k scans.

    One of the major attributes of the GF III upgrade is the new inclusuion (at least in CODA) of all of the original material previously seen as soft dupes in earlier versions. In ‘07, we were able to replace only the most problematic Opticals, as we had neither time nor urgent to affect more. Mr...

    No problem. There were specific drive-in density prints.

    Welcome to HTF, and thank you for your explanation. First, and most important, any images captured from a screen with a camera are 100% worthless, so we won't go there. Second, everyone's eyes see things slightly differently, so anyone explaining color is problematic. Some additional...

    That particular bit of stock footage was the only piece derived from Vista original.

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ The Godfather(s) -- in 4k UHD

    If I'm reading the translation properly, the reviewer has no concept of what the film is supposed to look like. Actually, the wedding celebration was perfectly exposed to create the illusion of improperly exposed Anscochrome. During interviews, Mr. Willis used to field questions about his...

    I do. Google translate is fine in a general sense, but misses some niceties.

    Anyone speak German? Interestingly, the single shot selected to compare resolution is the single shot in the film from the Vegas montage for which the 35/8 VVLA footage has been located in stock footage and replaced what was a 3rd generation 35/4 dupe in the conformed neg. It’s as if the...

    Sorry. Can’t answer that. Could have been either a new 35 print or the 4k DCP. Of the two, the DCP is the better variant.

    It should be. Rights should not be a problem. Clips are most likely all 4k.

    No. Hardly newly discovered. Simply a cinematographer of Mr. Daviau’s stature opining, after examining the elements, that having a registration pin moving through that much tape and oozing adhesive, was not a good thing to have occur. The pin eventually can get bogged down with adhesive, and...

    Any questions, please post to this thread as opposed to messaging. I was asked about the difference in bit depth, which can allow a bit more digging for color, if any is there. It has nothing to do with overall resolution. The 2008 and 22 are both 4k.

    I would have to check, but as I recall, it was film-based.

    Not suggesting you upgrade your projector. Merely use a 4k player to feed 4k data from the new discs into your 1080p.

    The 2022 should be more accurate to the DCP, and the original files. While the 2008 was beautiful, something occurred between the time I signed off on the files and the release of the Blu-ray. Minor, but probably visible in a side-by-side. Also, we have better compression today, which would...

    I’ve received emails and have been reading queries online regarding the 50th Anniversary release of The Godfather(s), and thought it best to set down in words, how this relates to the work performed by my team in 2007, and what my thoughts are with the new version. Some facts (for those into...
