Next parcel to leave will be yours, Osi.

I had a mail from G. right today. He has almost finished and will ship all movies when I'm back in Verona (10/12 February).

Ciao [Wink] !

Thanks Michael, for the screen shots from Star Trek!

As far as the fading goes, I can definately tolerate a print like that with no problem. Nice sharp picture, good contrast, it still looks great on the big screen.

I've only had two prints that were so badly faded, they had to be thrown away. But usually they are fine.

James.

Gian: no, I'm not kidding re: Tenebre.

Yesterday's show, Star Wars the Phantom Menace. This is not my favorite in the series but it's got a few good scenes.

Osi,
on the photos the fading looks harder than it is - my camera is not the best and it doesn't correct the colours. If the copy is faded just a little bit, the photos looks like it is all red.
I don't know about the stock of my copy, but I will check it...

James,
it is a little bit strange, to see a TV-Series on the big screen, but - as you said - with those sharpness and contrast it is really amazing. As I said to Osi, the fading is not so hard as it seems...
Will screen "The city on the edge of forever" if I will have a little bit time again.

Jean-Marc, will you screen it, one day (I'm referring to TENEBRE) and post some shots, please? I must come to visit you, sooner or later [Wink] Is it in French? I'm having an idea...

Thanks Jeroen.
Talk to you soon. Ciao.

Christian: projector is a K i noton FP23, with 400w halogen lamp (perfect for my setting), with IDEF transport (for up to three hours of program), Dolby CP45 sound processor, DTS6D digital processor, Macmah amps (slx100 - 6x100w), JBL speakers, homemade subwoofer.

Gian, I screened Tenebre a few months ago before taking pics. Yes, it's in French. You're welcome to come over when the print of Deep Red is ready. I'm teaching my daughter the alphabet with original posters of Suspiria and Profondo Rosso (she knows her 'o's very much now!)

[Big Grin] What a teacher [Big Grin] !

Is TENEBRE edited or the uncut version [Roll Eyes] ?

Of course I would be pleased to come there for a screening. But do your best to arrange a double show (PROFONDO ROSSO and TENEBRE).
Just tell me when [Big Grin] !

Jean-Marc, those screen shots from Phantom Menace look incredible! Should I ever visit France, I'm stopping by for a screening!

Speaking for myself, I just don't know why Phantom Meance is so disliked. I love it and while not my favortie Star Wars film, it ranks very highly with me.

Thomas, I have a serious problem with the kid playing Anakin. I just wanna slap him and yell at his face: "come on, you brat, you're supposed to become Darth Vader!!!" The film also shows that Lucas is clearly not at ease with real actors. His directing efforts feel like "enter from left, stop on your mark, deliver your lines, exit to the right". This one is my least favorite of all six films. I like SWIII (and the print I own is really great).

Anyways, yesterday's show was all digital, just to test the capacity of our new BD player connected via HDMI to our Panny VP. We screened selected scenes from: "300", "The Day After Tomorrow", "Sin City", "Sweeney Todd", "Watchmen", "Mary and Max", "Blade Runner", "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin", "Clone Wars" and "Up!"

Wow Chip!!

Could you do, perhaps, a little review of this print? I have quite a few Kempski'd myself and have always found them quite pleasing, so I'm betting the color is still spot on, on your copy? There was at least one other company that released this title in scope on Super 8, but from what I understand, it was printed on Eastman Pinky stock and has gone,. well, pinky.

Jean-Marc, the point Lucas was trying to make was that Anakin was not born evil. Perhaps going a bit overboard with the "Yippiees!" and what not but also goes along with Lucas saying that Anakin and Vader are two seperate people.

For the record, Lucas cut a scene where, after winning the pod race, Anakin gets into a fight with a child Rodian (Greedo!) who thinks Anakin cheated. The scene was meant to show that Anakin has a temper. The final cut has just subtle hints of this temper.

As for SW III, yeah agree that's the best of the prequels. The 3 print I ran at work were all stunning. Glad to hear your is as well!

I guess were gettin off track but I wanted to chime in on this. I do agree with what Lucas was trying to show. This kind of evil can happen in anyones life, espcially if unchecked, (you'd think that "annie" would have been able to get over a lot of that "angst") It's my least favorite as well, (Phantom Menace), but the story line is crucial to understanding thscope of the whole series,as the six films are really about the rise, fall and redemption of a character. I did find Anakin as a child rather annoying. If I'm not mistaken, the child actor who played him appeared in cameo's in the next two prequels ...

In "Attack of the Clones" as a young man in the background as Obiwan Kenobi is leaving the library (or was it a house of records). The young man goes up to the person Obiwan was just talking to.

In "Revenge of the Sith", as Senator Organa is arriving at one of the "tethers" or docking stations at the temple, a teenage Jedi comes running out to defend him and is killed, though he tries to defend himself, fighting with a lightsabre as Senator Organa flies away. You never see him close-up, but I'm pretty sure its a cameo with that same actor.

Personally, I hated JarJar, and was SOOO relieved that his appearances were much shorter in the following prequels.

Stewart, calling my comments "lame" is lame in itself and very uncalled for. I would never call any of your comments lame. I respect your comments so please try and respect mine.

Also, I wasn't trying to justify anything. I was mearly stating an established fact in the Star Wars universe. Nothing more.

Osi, never heard about Jake Lloyd's cameos. Interesting if true. As for Jar Jar, a character was needed that was not stupid but very naive, one who could be easily manipulated as Jar Jar is in Episode II. He is the only one who trusts Senator Palpatine. His role is reduced to a cameo in III because he has served his purpose.

Finally, George Lucas never meant for the Star Wars films to be as over analyzed as they are. In the grand scheme of things, what Lucas accomplished is remarkable, a six film modern serial. We will never see anything like it again.

Tonight I saw "The Giant Spider Invasion" (2x400). Fun exploitation, with some awfully made giant spiders!

Also saw "Blood on the sun" (5x400). Have had this for about two years now, finally got around to see it... an OK film, but will never be a favourite of mine.
