Another project complete. The blu ray has drastically different colours when compared to the laserdisc so I have colour corrected it scene by scene, using over 50 Dr Dre LUTs and slightly adjusting the contrast levels in Premiere.
  • BD25 with animated menus that look and behave like the official Criterion discs, with a background video, pop up menus and resume function
  • Video taken from the official Blu Ray, with scene by scene colour correction
  • Original chapter stops used on the Laserdisc
  • English 2.0 from the Laserdisc (Thanks Alexpeden and Zoidberg!)
  • Two Criterion audio commentary tracks taken from Laserdisc
  • English, French, German and Spanish Subtitles
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Making Of A Menace: Introduction
  • Interview With The Hughes Brothers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Storyboards
  • Film To Story Comparison
  • Shooting the Korean Grocery Store Scenes
  • Film School
  • 2Pac Brenda's Got A Baby Music Video
  • Raw Fusion Throw Your Hands In The Air Music Video
  • Laserdisc Production Credits

Just to clarify this is a project that I have made for myself which I am choosing to share. If you don't like the project, if you think it should have been done differently then feel free to keep that to yourself and consider doing your own project.

Looks fantastic! The Blu-ray always looked way too garish and over-saturated. This makes it far more filmic, great work.

I also have a Criterion Laserdisc and I want to watch with subtitles (closed captions) and it doesn't contains cc disappointly. I am right? Although there is a sign for cc.
You want to create a custom BD like Special Editon BD. It seems wonderful but I can offer you to give you german audio track. Do you want it?

The project has German subtitles but it's already complete I'm afraid so not looking to add any extra audio tracks
