[No Longer Available] Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan Theatrical Cut Sky HDTV

Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan Theatrical Cut (Sky HDTV 1080p v1.0)

I know the UHD is coming out very, very soon but my favorite rendition of the ST2 has always been the Sky version (also previously on iTunes). I love its warm, saturated look and very film like appearance. And my favorite cut of the movie is the theatrical cut (TC) even though the DC isn't bad (unlike ST6). So I went about cutting the Sky broadcast into the TC and added the 2 or 3 shots missing from one of the BDs. Although I like the HDTV it has a host of problems common to broadcasts. First the black levels are off and second there is a ton of macroblocking, some minor others major. I set the correct levels for the movie and then upscaled the movie to 4K and ran marcoblocking filter to fix 95% of the problems. For the remaining 5% of issues, half I went frame-by-frame painting out the macroblocking. For the parts left that couldn't be fixed with any methods, like so:

I plugged in parts from other TC BDs and color corrected them to match. Shots from the final battle with static on the viewscreen I left alone as the replacement's color didn't work. The end results were downscaled back to a 1080p MKV.

For audio I included the older 1st gen BD's tracks, the wonderful PCM from the laserdisc and finally the tracks from the first gen TC DVD. The DD 2.0 on the DVD sounds surprisingly really good.

The Sky HDTV broadcast with the correct levels, macroblocking cleaned up and frames replaced if need be, cut down to the TC.

1. PCM 2.0 Dolby Surround (from the WS laserdisc)
2. Dolby Digital 2.0 (from the 1st Gen TC DVD)
3. Dolby Digital 5.1 (from the 1st Gen TC DVD)
4. Dolby Digital TrueHD 7.1 (from the 1st Gen TC BD)
