I watched the last days "Southern Comfort" from 1981 - Dir.: Walter Hill.
This is a german version of the movie.
It´s an amazing Agfa print with almost non wear.
I love this backwoods movie, it is one of Walter Hill´s best directing.
It is a mix out of adventure with action and a bid exploitation.

Hello! So last weekend I finally got around to watching my copy of Supergirl starring Helen Slater, no relation to Christian Slater;).

The last time I saw this film was back in late 80's early 90's and I must say it's not what I remembered it to be.
Quite cheesy, felt it was too fast paced in some bits and things just kept happening for the sake of an action scene. Let's just say it was no where as epic as it's cousin, Superman: The Movie.
All that being said it does have a some charm to it and its one of those films to watch on a rainy day.

This copy is on Eastman LPP (can someone tell me if Eastman LPP is polyester or acetate as I can detect a very faint smell of vinegar. If polyester then there shouldn't be any).
The sound was great as well as the picture. Probably one of the best "colour film" I have in my collection. Very rich in some scenes.
Had a couple of splices.

Overall it was an enjoyable watch:)

Supergirl
1984
Dir: Jeannot Szwarc (Jaws 2 fame)

A sure way to know that a film is Polyester based is to hold the reel up to the light while placing your hand behind the reel and if you see your hand then it's polyester film stock.

Poly stock is also thinner than triacetate.

Kodak LPP prints were produced on triacetate and polyester film stocks.

Isn't it great that we can all communicate about this great

Tis the Season...and it's become a tradition to watch with my son "It's a Wonderful Life." I had a slight mishap this year however. I put a 1600ft take-up reel on when the movie reel was 2000ft...OPPPPS! Film started sliding off the take-up reel and twisting. It took both of us about 15 minutes to get it all untangled and back on the original reel...but no film was harmed and we moved on to watch the second reel with no problem.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Did a 2 hour Christmas marathon show out and about projecting lots of seasonal shorts with a friend. All sorts old subjects for the Christmas show including as you would expect Santa Clause.
Nice evening but rather late home.
