The one from whom I purchae this prints has had them for rental....These are no convertations from DVD or VHS. These prints does have a proper lap-head with the titel and other infos of this movie....
I agree with you Tom. 16mm prints has been produced till the beginning of the 21st century...
My youngest are from 1998 and 1999.
It´s a shame that there will be no more movies on this system, because the quality of the output has been getting better and better. Poor film material, which turns red, was sorted out....

Sorry I wasnt accusing them of being fake, I'm genuinely surprised they made 16mm versions of these 'new' movies.

I've just seen the posts about when the last library features printed on 16mm were. I did quite a bit of research on this and I'd be very happy to be proved wrong if there's evidence to the contrary, but the most recent titles I discovered were a few 2007 films in an Australian library. The most recent elsewhere was 'Cars' (2006), which the US Swank library used to have.

I don't think the 16mm and Super 8 prints that Christopher Nolan had printed of 'Dunkirk' are available to hire anywhere, but it's a nice thought!

Blimy Adrian, what a thought of that film being on our gauges

Holgar, thank you, this was rare for me to buy a film i had only seen bits and pieces of before but Jeff Bridges is on of my favourite actors. Its a lovely print and a very good movie [Wink]

Watched my print of Dear Heart (1964). I've had a digital version of this movie for years and finally found a 16mm copy. This is a slightly quirky romantic comedy starring Glenn Ford and Geraldine Page. I've always loved this movie and after watching it's hard to get Henry Mancini's title song out of your head.

I hope to post some screen caps after my next viewing.

Adrian, were the rumours of 8/16mm copies of Dunkirk ever confirmed?

Yesterday I watched Cannon´s Dangerously Close from Albert Pyun.
It was quite entertaining.
On a elite High School, classmates have formed an elite clique.
They have a policies in which what is desireable and undesirebale in regard of personal expression and behavior.

By the way this print is on an AGFA filmstock.

Another very good print there Holger,
Over the last two evenings or so i have viewed my latest film, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The print is on LPP polyester stock and the actual quality of the image and sound is out of this world, Reel one, (in particular) suffers from some green emulsion lines which is a real shame but it's a film i always wanted to own. A film with everything in it, action, romance and a great cast with Sean Connery making an uncredited appearance.

Thanks Mark, it is a lovely film to own, i wish they would invent a way of covering up those emulsion lines though. [Frown] [Wink]

Holger, You have to take the movie not too serious but it is full of great action, and Alan Rickman plays a superb baddie, lots of fun and big names of the day, and being a theatrical version it is a little more brutal than when it is on TV but even better on the big screen. The print is stunning but this one does suffer with some emulsion scratches mostly on reel 1 but there are some marks on all the reels which is such a shame. Mr Guest did look after me on this though so thank you to David on this. [Wink]

Yesterday I watched the picture "Dreamscape"
Dennis Quaid enters dreams of patients which suffers on psychoses to help them.... It´s a real fantastic sci-fi movie with a great cast:
Dennis Quaid, Kape Capshaw, Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer and Eddie Albert....
This is an Eastman LLP print, amazing colours with very sharp focus and a minimum of wear.

I wounder how this movie could pass the MPAA with a PG rating, because there is a little bit of nudity, violence and gore and some profanity.
I don´t have a problem with this rating, that´s just a thought.

Three French musical compilations spools. Songs were cut from '30s and '40s films by a projectionnist who made a lot of those compilations.

Hello Dominique, screening something with in regard of music on 16mm is great. I love it too :-).

Yesterday I watched Ricochet with a very young Denzel Washington and an amazing John Lithgow which plays a criminal called Blake. This Blake character acts sadistic and ruthless very convincingly performed by John Lithgow.

While the end credits run, the track "Ricochet" was implemented performed by Ice-T, very rough gangsta-rap...

This print is adapted scope and on an Agfa filmstock.
A very entertaining movie, isn´t it?
Enjoy the images :-).
