  The Godfather Trilogy 4K UHD

How does everyone here feel about the new 2022 masters for the Godfather films? I’m flabbergasted at what they did so far.

I ran the UHD of I. Then I watched the new little "restoration" featurette in desperation.
Zoetrope team handled it instead of Paramount. MPI did the scans.

So what the hell happened?

Frozen grain, random DNR that comes and goes from shot to shot, noise popping up everywhere....again Frozen Grain in The Godfather!!! And then you have the HDR application which seems kinda all over the place.
The new source scan and work seems lovely and doesn't have the drawbacks of what affected the old BD compared to the source restoration and DCPs produced by RAH and the 2007 team. When whatever the heck was done disappears or is dialed back there is obviously much more detail. But even though throwing those old Paramount discs on shows how they haven't aged well in their encodes and have too much red for example...at least you don't have the hideous issues of the new disc.
Again...what the hell happened? This is nuts.

The color is more neutral overall in its approach. It never hits the saturation levels of the 2008 disc but is relatively close when viewed on an OLED with the DV grading. The wedding is less blown out but they did keep some degree of trying to have that vintage home photography effect. I did notice the Vegas signs sticking out as RAH mentioned because they apparently sourced them from a master source.

Audio is the same scenario-lossy mono but at least its better than every other version I've tried save for the stupidly rare initial video releases.

I really don't even know how to describe it. It's better in some ways and hideous in others. At first I thought I was seeing things.

How in the hell this got glowing reviews is beyond me. It could look nice if you look past all the tomfoolery sure. Sure it's good to be in 4K instead of the outdated BDs. But at what cost???

  The 13th Warrior French Blu Ray

Does anyone have the out of print French Blu Ray? From looking at caps-a-holic the German release has better colors and the French release has extra image so a combination of the two could work well - but the French disc is not easy to find.

Hello everyone! I finally got around to joining the forum, I remember lurking on the other site forum.fanres back before this site existed. Now I mostly specialize in upscales and have shared a fair amount on another private forum. I am making an account here not only to check out some of the projects I am highly interested in, but to potentially contribute myself. Big Grin
