The "This movie has a clean center channel!" thread (List in OP)
#1
A place to list movies we discover that have clean center channels*. Perhaps this will provide fun headache-free first-time editing options for those new to fanediting Smile.

(* By "clean center channels", I mean a movie that has a center surround-sound channel, that is free (Or virtually free) from music. This is actually pretty rare... sadly ConfusedadSmile.

Okay, the list. The following movies have music-free channels...

24: Season 7 (TV Show) (PAL DVD)
Arrow (TV show) (Season 1 and 2 blu-ray)
Blade Runner (Final Cut DVD. Will Double Check)
Black Panther (center channel pretty clean)
Boogie Nights (Blu-Ray. Very clean)
Clone Wars, The: CGI Version (TV Show)
(All episodes, not movie)
Crazies, The (2010 film)
(US Blu-Ray)
Doctor Who (TV Show) (New-Series 1-7... probably)
Drive (US Blu-Ray)
Dunkirk (almost completely music-free)
Escape From L.A. (US Region-Free Blu-Ray. 100% clean)
Expanse, The (Season 1 Blu Ray) (100% clean)
Garden State (DVD mostly clean)
Grosse Pointe Blank
(At least several scenes clean. Rest unverified)
Halloween: Resurrection (Blu-Ray)
Halloween II (2009) (Blu-Ray)
Independence Day (US Blu-Ray mostly clean)
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The
Man Of Steel
(DVD. UK-Blu-Ray mostly clean)
Masters of Horror (TV Show)
(Episode 8 at least)
Matrix, The
(Mostly clean. Original 1999 US DVD)
Natural Born Killers

Paprika (Anime) (PAL-DVD. Almost completely clean)
Resident Evil: Extinction (DVD)
Room, The

Saw 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7 (maybe 5 and 6?)
Starship Troopers 3 (DVD)
Transformers: The Movie
(UK "Reconstructed" DVD)
Underworld: Theatrical Cut
(PAL DVD 95% free)
Virtuosity
Zack & Miri Make A Porno
(Unconfirmed)

^ These "Clean" tracks may only be clear on specific regions, or formats, so I'll list this info when available. However, that doesn't mean that the channel isn't clear on all the other formats/regions too.

If you know of other movies, please post below and I'll add it to this first post (Some format/region info would be great too).

Honourable Mentions...

Short Circuit (R1 Blu-Ray. Has an alt.track free of all dialogue)
Star Trek Into Darkness (Compendium Edition Blu-Ray) - Has absolutely zero dialogue in all channels (except the center). Music is quite low in center channel. Making audio editing pretty easy.
Ghostbusters 2016 (Blu-Ray) - Music is loud in the center channel but there is almost no dialogue bleed into any other channel. So dialogue removal isn't too bad.
Terror, The - Center channel has no dialogue.

I think the center track on the final cut dvd of Blade Runner is pretty damn clean.

I don't remember if the channel is free for the entire movie, because it's been about 6 years since I edited it, but I know that there was a channel that was free of music for the opening scene in Zack & Miri Make A Porno.
Completed Edits:
Zack And Miri Make A Porno: Extended Workprint Edition / Repo Men - The Reality...It's A Bitch! Edition / The Haunted World Of Katie Featherston / Haunted From Childhood: The Katie Featherston Story

Thanks all, that's a good start. Damn wish I'd checked KOTCS as I'd have done a little more rescoring on that for sure.

Man of Steel.

The entire run (I believe) of the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The movie Virtuosity, which I'll some day get around to finishing my edit of. Unless someone else wants to do all the hard work? Hint.

Oh, and the Masters of Horror episode Cigarette Burns* is too. Another edit I'll probably never finish. Wink

*The other episodes may be too, but I've never bothered to check.
Currently available as MP4: (PM Me for info. But only if you are a forum poster or FE reviewer. No offense, but y'gotta give to get.)

I'm actually surprised by this. I have tried a fair amount of soundtrack replacement/removal, and I haven't found the center channel to be all that clean, at least not in the version I have. What source did you use, njvc? If there is a clean(er) version out there, I'd love to hear about it Smile

Great idea for a thread, BTW, TM2YC!
Criticism is good. Suggestions are better.

Bloody hell is it! :-) I've been putting off doing a MOS edit for ages, knowing that I wanted to work in much more of the epic new Zimmer hero theme thing.

This raises a good point. Maybe sometimes clean tracks are only available on certain editions. So please if possible let me know what format (DVD/BR) and what Region (US/UK/Eur/Aus etc). Thanks

Oh wow that was directed by John Carpenter and stars Udo Kier. I had no idea.
