Vidar,

Regarding GREMLINS, is this a 35mm print.
Looks great.

Yes, it's a 35mm print and has amazing colors. Close to perfect, except the problem that is't flat 1.85:1 on all reels except reel 5 which is 2.35:1 flat

Weird, I thought it was filmed in 1.85:1, but see the Blu-Ray rips online states 2.35:1 too

Hello Vidar,

indeed IMDB says the film was shooted (apect ratio) at 1.85:1

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087363/technical?ref_=tt_dt_spec

Where did you read about 2.35:1?

Search google for Gremlins 2.35:1 and the "pirated" Blu-Rays states 2.35:1 as original aspect ratio

Well, it's clealry a mistake as you can easily see also on AMAZON

http://www.amazon.com/Gremlins-Blu-ray-Zach-Galligan/dp/B001AQT0UY

and I hope you are happy to know your 35mm is a really original copy with great fantastic colors!

Don't you agree??? [Big Grin]

I love it, except the part that reel 5 is still 2.35:1 and the rest is 1.85:1 :-)

Are any of those Gremlins pics from R5?

Gremlins was absolutely not shot in scope. It's was shot flat, open matte, except some scenes were filmed hard matte with a 1:66 aspect ratio.

I'd like to see pics of R5 to see what you're interpreting as scope.

It's not scope, it's matted (or is it called letterboxed?) to 2.35:1

Come to think of it, the 16mm print I borrowed also had different sections in different formats

I'll try to take a shot or something of the screen running the two different reels, when I get the time

My copy of 'The Dirty Dozen' on super 8 is mainly full screen, but a couple of sections are masked down. Not to scope though.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Two 16mm films from our show last night. First one here is a film by Ivo Caprino and is some sort of promotion for Oslo. Very red, even with blue filter. Runs some 15+ minutes

And we saw a nice, funny feature called Reuben, Reuben with a very good Tom Conti and a young Kelly McGillis. Paid a whopping 20 GBP for it

Watched the same movie twice. Once alone and once with my mother. Verzet in Duitsland.

Thanks to a trip to Amsterdam I got the lamp I needed to get my b&h up and running again.

From the Gremlins issue I had before, where reel 5 is different aspect ratio than the rest ... Here's some pictures

From reel 4
 -

Reel 5
 -

Reel 6
 -

And here I pasted directly the screen from reel 5 onto reel 6
 -

Clearly not the same ratio in my eyes anyways

Vidar, have you seen the 8mm version of 'Gremlins'?
The S8mm 2 X 600ft edition is full frame except for the sequence in Dorry's Bar which is masked to widescreen (not scope format).

I have not seen that, but I've borrowed the 16mm print once and it had some differences too, but not in the same places. The 16mm had some masked sequences when the mother is fighting the gremlins in the kitchen among other sequences.

Does that mean it was shown like that in the cinemas? I can not remember noticing that in the 80's when I saw it, but it's quite some time ago
