Blade Runner International Cut 2160p Upscale + Regrade

I still love the colors from my Criterion regrade but the project is now 7 years old is showing its age. It has a few minor problems including and most annoying, an inconsistent black level. So I tried to quickly update this project with the techniques I've learned in the intervening years. I overlaid the original project over the original IC BD and glued on roughly 30% of the original luma to even out the up-and-down levels of the original project. I then did some work with curves, contrast, etc to fix the black level and try to eliminate the flat look of the original. I then added a tiny bit of my CRT LUT, grain and upscaled the whole thing so I could test some 4K encoding and rendering. Not perfect and not as good as a start-over but better then the original. Kind of a testbed for me to figure out some things.
