Re: Video Remasters

..... My guess is these videos are up-rezzes rather than scanned negative, which means they're not true HD anyway. But you'll never be able to tell on YouTube. Of course they´re just up-scaled videos since "negatives" of a native video flimed/edited piece never existed. As is the case for almost al...

Re: Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

Five new 'HD remastered' videos posted on the official channel. Unfortunately they're just poor AI upscales of the SD masters. They should have gone back to the negatives and rescanned them properly. "Negatives" only exist for movies shooted on "film"..not on "video". Most (if not all) of the class...

Re: Video Remasters

As I mentioned in early comments here..this supposed HD remasters are no more than a joke... Just more contrast and sharpness..but it`s just the same old Standard Definition videos in bigger size. If at least they had tried to use some A.I. software to re-process the videos and increase definition.....

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

It has been common for European films to be shot at 25 frames per second, even though they will then have to be slowed down to 24 frames per second when they are shown in cinemas – at least in the age of actual film projection. It makes some kind of sense to shoot at 25 fps when the film is mainly ...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Hmm... I've never had a bluray player but I have a bluray CD-ROM which I am going to use to rip the bluray (hopefully arriving soon) into a MKV file before watching it. But now it looks like I will have to first convert/resample the video file to whatever frame rate/timing represents the actual act...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

... Finally to add to the confusion... Rent has a slightly longer intro on the film than the LP/7" mix Oh, not just Rent. As an example, Always on my mind demo version has an extra verse/loop in the intro and another extra loop in the middle compared with the released audio version.. so for sure ma...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Here I found a version of the HD Always on my mind movie clip with improved audio quality and corrected speed... https://youtu.be/lvhRPJH5Tgw ...just to take a little watch of what could have been (the image quality of the BluRay release is really GREAT anyway...there are not complains about that...)

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

That’s probably due to the 4% PAL speedup compared to film due to a difference in frame rate, 24 vs 25 frames per second: http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/articles/PALSpeedUp/PALSpeedUp.asp That is no longer an issue with bluray, but in the old days PAL VHS, Laserdisc etc were all 4% too fast. You hear...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Just something curious...comparing the "new" remastered 2020 version with the "old" versions available (VHS, LD and with the actual studio recordings of the songs) the new one one seems to run at a notably lower speed!! After a couple of minutes, there are already many seconds of difference...weird!

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

If you want a change, and album with songs by all different producers. Both a retrospective of old producers they worked with, plus new ones. It will be hard to get an "unified" sound if they want that...but even "variety" is a valid option. And a good album title ;).

Living Daylights wasnt This must be the place I waited years to leave ?
There were two "James Bond" demos from PSB.
One of them turned on "This must be the place..." the other one remain officially unreleased to date (just type "pet shop boys james bond demo 2" on youtube ;) )

Re: Smithsonian presents: Project Pride feat. PSB

..I insist..if there is a "Disco 5" on the horizon...thís is a very possible preview of what we could get on it. Something they do year by year on their live concerts: a collection of their own updated re-versions of selected classics.
