War of the Worlds audio - both versions
#1
It was bad enough that the 1953 version of WOTW directed by George Pal has had a new 5.1 remix by Ben burtt, but that it also uses a wide array of new sounds effects throughout the entire feature.  The previous stereo remix that was at least made from original elements is now gone from all new releases.  The mono track on the upcoming releases hopefully will be not overly filtered and compressed.



Then there is the 2005 remake version of WOTW, directed by Steven Spielberg. The original 5.1 DVD had low bass levels that were off the charts. Potential speaker damaging frequencies.  Great stuff.  The later 5.1 DTS-MA bluray track had the low frequencies lowered ever so slightly but unless one did A/B comparisons was close enough and still a speaker threatening house shaker. Everything was still there.  .. It's May 2020 and the Ultra bluray release with an Atmos audio remix is now out and reports are the house shaking low end has been neutered. Unlike the very negligible differences between the DVD and bluray audio, this time the low end us noticeably weaker and worst of all, no original audio is included on the Ultra bluray.

For WOTW 2005, I'm making my own custom mux of the UHD with the Atmos and the BD 5.1. The Atmos track also has some positives and I believe it gets to higher frequencies than the 5.1

If there's interest in either of these tracks, just contact me by PM.

I found a guy on Youtube that ripped the Stereo sound from the 53 laserdisc and replaced the mono sound on a DVD rip (this was before the BluRay release). To me, the sound is better than the Criterion release.
