Screens of the week !

Movie : The 400 Blows (SF098-5064)
LD player : LD-X1
Deinterlacer : Lumagen 2144 in film mode
Capture card : Live Gamer HD 2
Movie size : Letterbox
review in french : https://retro-visual.jimdo.com/laserdis ... 400-blows/
LD Quality : 2.5/5

quite bad quality LD for a great movie... too bad. They had the good taste to not add subtitles on the main image but under the image. Also Truffaut movies photography is so good, then the result seems good. I rated it 2.5.
Thanks to the lumagen and the LD-X1 I could get reasonable image. But I my previous experience (DVDO + CLD-959) the movie was nearly unwatchable.

My experience with these older Japanese LDs are very hit or miss.
The great thing was that they did release these films in widescreen before the USA, but sometimes they used poor negatives or it was a poor transfer, too dark too blurry.

And some are amazing and just as good as their newer LD transfers, or they were never released on LD in the USA and we didn't get it on DVD for another 10-20 years.

Yeah. The covers are amazing on a lot of JP editions of European classics. Sadly I can’t understand any of them in the original language except maybe Wim Wenders since he often uses as many as six languages in the same movie which...gives someone a lot more context. Japanese subs help but those are often terrible too.

Hello everyone !
I didn't have time recently to do screens... sorry.

Movie : Hell in the Pacific (8028-85)
LD player : LD-X1
Deinterlacer : Lumagen 2144 in film mode
Capture card : Live Gamer HD 2
Movie size : Letterbox
review in french : https://retro-visual.jimdo.com/laserdis ... cific-new/
LD Quality : 2.5/5

The LD image is not so bad, but lot of parts are not well deinterlace by the lumagen (in film mode, I get better results with DVDO Edge !), and the face B quality is very low.

I wish Lee Marvin was my dad. Those captures look really good to me.

Thank you forper ! This is the best I could do. But too much part of the movie with deinterlacing fault. 2nd face has also too much blur and bad color timing.
