absolutely fantastic news indeed
"The episodes’ original English soundtrack, including the memorable title song, will be renovated and a new music & effects track added."
Yep, ain't going to buy this one...thanks a lot for altering the classics...
How cool is this? That remastered screen shoot looks amazing.
"and a new music & effects track added."
This frightens me though... just so long as any new music is an option... 'cause I want that cheesy 60's music intact, thankyouverymuch.
Very cool! Just don't change the music!
[gets on soapbox]As long as the original soundtrack is available, they can do what they want with the remixing.[/gets on soapbox]
However, I have to question the wisdom of doing a sound remix at all... when all is said and done the animation of this series is very limited, and I don't think jazzing up the sound will make it appeal to todays kids.
I want these cartoons so bad that I can taste it. However, if they're going to screw with the product than they can keep it. That theme song is a classic and hearing it at the end of the "Spiderman" movie was the only thing that redemmed it. For those who didn't sit through the credits, the original song played at the very end. The Ramones version is pretty kick-ass also.
The music and sound effects are the best part of the series! Tamper with that and I won't buy it. I'll stick to my VHS recordings from Teletoon and the two episodes currently in
release on DVD.
I'll take it anyway I can get it. The video restoration looks really great. If they add a little umph to the sound track, eh, what the heck.
It's worth noting that DVDs aren't mentioned anywhere in the article, despite what the subject of this thread indicates.
The soundtrack will be altered.
However, I read the press release too read; the original song/soundtrack will only be restored.
Adding other sound/music elements.
This better be done judiciously, otherwise upsetting a delicate balance.
As well as upsetting a lot of fans!
To echo many other posters sentiments of No OAR = No Sale, No Original Audio = No Sale to this fan. Why can't studios learn to leave some things well enough alone?
Just one point
Often times a seperate music and effects track is made available for foreign dubbing. This could be what they're referring to, that it's isolated
I doubt it. I expect this is the same travesty as the unlamented Cartoon Crazys series from Fox Lorber, where they take classic cartoons and superimpose shitty music and effects that are plainly inappropriate. FL did not bother to include the original tracks. This was, briefly, exciting news, but I'm not buying Spidey that's been screwed up in this manner.
Oscar, like Adam pointed out, how do you know this is being done for a DVD release? Did you just assume that and put it in the title?
isnt the first ep already on dvd?
included as one of the features of the ultimate villain showdown?
You guys realize that this is one of Ralph Bakshi's earliest works?
But a restored version sounds almost funny. Those particular cartoons were what, 1fps or soemthing? It wouldn't take much to restore them.
I vaguely recall a whole series of cartoons in this "barely animated" style, Thor, The Hulk, etc. Even a few DC titles like Aquaman. Fun stuff.
Didn't Stan Lee do the voiceover for some of these?
Does anybody think that the music rights to some of the original songs has been keeping this series from release?? Hence, the "new music & effects track added". Just wondering....
I have been waiting for this series for many years. I too will forgo purchasing it unless the original soundtrack is available (restored or not).
I heard it did not take them that long to restore the piece. They just had to dust off those 10 frames and repeat them over and over and...
