[No Longer Available] Quantum Of Solace Open Matte

Quantum Of Solace Open Matte (v1.0)

Project Info

Quantum of Solace (QOS) has a reputation as being the bad Craig James Bond..well until Spectre came out. I originally agreed with that opinion but after revisiting it recently, I found there is a lot to like. It gave closure to the CR plot-line, it is quick and to the point and never overstays it welcome, its beautifully shot, the action is suitable intense, etc. The only real problem I had was some of the truncated writing as a result of the writers strike and the way the action was shot. Whereas CR co-oped the Bourne action style, it kept a classical style of framing and cutting. QOS went full Bourne with the cutting and shaky cam to what I feel is the detriment of the film.

I found the open matte in the usually spot and was playing around with it till I got a vastly superior HDTV recording from X5gb. X5's HDTV had greater details, original subs and some grain but had a constant logo and was missing some frames at commercial breaks. So I combined the best of both worlds to get a new project out of it.

For audio, I was able to locate the Cinema DTS for this project will also include the normal BD track.

Video:
A combination of an HDTV broadcast and Web-DL for logo fill and missing frames

Audio:
1. DTS-HD MA 5.1 (from the Cinema DTS Discs)
2. DTS-HD MA 5.1 (from the US BD)

Sync
Synced to the US (and most likely international) BD

Subs:
1. English (from the US BD)

Nice to know there is a subfree version out there. I'll have to contact X5gb to locate that one.
Also, there is a UHD out there now, if you want to go the combination route with even better details in the center "slice" of the frame...

Agreed. The film always seemed unfairly maligned to me. It could have been better, but CR was hard to live up to. And the following Craig Bonds went down hill pretty rapidly.

X5's has subs, the one in the wild does not. I didn't go the combination route since I like consistency of image in this case over having a slight bump in image in the center (plus the sharpness of the grain doesn't match)

I do like Skyfall myself but Spectre is clearly a movie no one wanted to make and shouldn't of been made.

CR is the best.

I will be all over this project when it's released! (Super excited about the Cinema DTS audio for this one and to see the 35mmized version as well!!). I know many folks don't care for this film, but I think it's an underrated Bond film. Thank you in advance!

I know this is a thread for QOS open matte... and that the project is still in the works... and I don't wanna be that guy that's just seems ungrateful and asks for more, but...

Are there plans for Skyfall to receive a similar treatment? I think it's a crime that the studio has yet to officially release the IMAX framing (other than the 16:9 on HDTV) which is how I experienced it theatrically (and it was a truly awesome experience, IMO). Though I remain hopeful, I realize we may never get the full IMAX ratio, unfortunately, but a 16:9 open matte would be a happy compromise. I don't have any means to cap such a broadcast as well.
Or does such a release already exist?

Again... thanks for everything!!!

Here is the more 35mm look based off various materials. Close to the HDTV/BD but pushed to be more orange (particularity skin tones), green and blue.
