How about "This Film Has Been Restored. What's it to ya?"
LOL and what exactly was the previous strike?
I was kidding, but actually Crusade is my favorite of the series. Can't stand Doom and never saw Skull.
How about (in a deep voice) "Digitally F&$k Yeaaaaahhhh!!!!"?
Just read this interesting article the other day. Temple of Gloom - Why is the second Indiana Jones movie so dark? (at Grantland.com)
Malcolm had offered me his impending copy of Crystal Skull at an appropriately knock-down price. To which I, of course, gave an appropriately knock-down answer.
When a car has some scratches, a couple dents and needs some touch ups, it's called "body work". Maybe we can call this type of work "4K Digital Bodywork"?
Yes I am always a little surprised that the maximum available information on the OCN is not utilised.I hope to that we get a very broad sweep of the OCN,and not a selective extraction.
You mention Jaws was from a print .Did'nt they go back to the OCN for that. I thought so,but still quite a lot of info(left and right) was left off the Blu-ray release. Framed exactly the same way as previous DVD's.
If your going to provide a high quality Blu-ray release after either restoring or re-visiting the negative,may as give us everthing that's on it.
This comment recognises of course the feelings of many that this forum in general wants what was shown in cinemas,however I do think that giving us what's on the OCN in this and many other cases hardly compromises the directors ultimate vision.

That's good thinking, Josh, and I think robert harris would approve.
But this could be improved on just a tad if we made it 'digitally remastorisated' .. those two extra letters do lend even more authority to the statement!
All I know is that this is a pretty good year for Blu-Ray. Jaws, E.T., and Indy. Add to that the complete Bond movies, Hitchcock set, and Universal monsters and I am one happy guy. Broke, but happy.
Right. Just like the movies. 'Full-Throttle Restoration: Genesis II: The Redemption'
Perhaps it can be referred to as a "Digital Recalibration" or "Digitally Remastered and Recalibrated"
or "Uber Bits Version"
I vote for "Digitally Re-kajiggered"
Robert - Thanks for the post and additional information about the release.
I am really looking forward to picking up this set!!!!
I heard that there may be a fifth Indy movie in the works. If so, I hope it is much better than Crystal Skull.
I like Renovation. It seems like a nice middle ground term between Restoration and Remastered.
Me too. Remastered implies untouched but freshly transferred. Renovation implies a new coat of paint and a bit of spit and polish. Restoration implies restored to its original condition.
I'd suggest "Full Gamut" Restoration for work done to the OCN (or producing a new safety negative) as opposed to "Digital Restoration" which of course would be restricted to files producing mastering material.
Why not "Digitally Detailed for Blu-ray" if we're using car analogies? It's more like clean up and polishing than anything else...
For the marketing folks at Paramount, what about "New 4K scan" and "optimized for Blu-ray"?
I'll be waiting for the individual films but it's possible Amazon will have a sale and offer this over 50% off a few months after release, or a few weeks, like this week's FOREVER MARILYN sale but it's possible it's due to Fox.
If the final release on Blu ray resembles what was released at cinemas or what is on the OCN and nothing has been changed and they are using digital tools for the job then call it digitally restored, if they alter the look then call it digitally altered or a digital f*** up, they can also tell us the film scanning resolution and that would satisfy me.
Frankly it doesn't matter too much, it's all marketing bull, anyone remember "The look and sound of perfect" even when some of it was atrocious quality.
