The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (Project CRT #8 v1.0)

Part of the Project CRT, for more background read here:

To quickly recap, many late 90's/early 2000s HD, DVD and even LD masters have a significant red/magenta push on modern flat panels. It is assumed that this is caused by them being mastered on older CRT monitors which had a green and blue push. This project attempts to fix many of those old masters by making them look how the color technician would see them on a CRT master monitor. Not necessarily more theatrically accurate but hopefully closer to what the colorist wanted and hopefully more pleasing to the eye.

So this is the Arrow copy of Banzai corrected to look how it does on my Sony BVM monitor. From the original BD I only had the PCM 2.0 Dolby Surround.

The BD of Banzai color corrected on a CRT mastering monitor.

1. PCM 2.0 Dolby Surround (from the Arrow BD)

Synced to the Arrow BD

applesandrice: for the US DVD
It's impressive how different the blue of the sky is rendered. Kinda of remind me the 4K release of Eastwood In the Line of Fire which had the same grey sky on the blu ray but a beautiful blue one for the 4K release
