[Canceled] Ravenous (1999) (Video Fix and Color Correction)

Ravenous (Video Fix and Color Correction v1.0)

Been thinking about a project of Ravenous (1999). Curious to see if any interest.

I really enjoy this oddball film. I didn't see it in theaters assuming, despite the great cast, its was just gory, dumb mess of a film. The trailer didn't do it any justice. After getting the DVD in 1999, I found that it was those things but it was also a fun black comedy and pseudo-western.

The original US DVD was a terrible non-anamorphic master. After buying the PAL DVD from the UK and the Itunes HD; I still found both based on the same terrible master and thus lacking. So color me surprised to hear that Shout was releasing it on BD. Well once again the same 20 year old master was popped out on disc.

The transfer is soft and fuzzy, lacking any sort of HD details. In fact doing the old up/downscale resolution test and comparing it to the Itunes HD, I doubt this BD resolves anywhere north of 720p. Adding to that BD is full of oversharpened and sometimes frozen grain and has some CRT red.

So I've been playing around with this for awhile, trying to dig details out of this. I removed the old bad grain, upscaled details to 1080p and 4K. Sharpened lines, regrain and color correcting.  I wouldn't call this amazing HD for sure but I think it is better then what we got.

You know I'm always interested in a PDB regrade Wink

But this movie is definitely a lot of fun! (Also can't wait til your Event Horizon comes out!)

Thanks TAF.

I got to get back to EH, I got half way through and paused it. Got a little burned out but I still have all the work done so far.

What a world, that Ravenous is on Disney+. D+ in the states stinks not having Fox, Touchstone and Hollywood pictures content.

Curious if its the same transfer.

It is crazy and surreal but it's an amazing service to have a ton of Tony Scott, Wes Anderson, Die Hard and have all the Disney animated stuff on the same service.
I am watching something, but will have a quick look after.

The reason for overseas Disney+ having more Fox and PG-13-R content is because most international markets don't have Hulu, which AFAIK remains exclusive to the US and Japan.

And I believe it's the same HD transfer all over as Fox never did a new one back when they were doing 4k scans.

This project is cancelled for now as I lost weeks of work on a dead hard drive. Sorry about that.
