Wow, I had no idea that such a famous movie had such restoration problems. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised considering the whole Star Wars situation, but I thought that was just a fluke. I'm glad someone is working on it even if the rest of us can't see it.

Nice to see fanediting in the news as a serious effort, not just as a nerdy hobby.

For their amount of effort, I agree with TM2YC that projecting their laserdisc sounds odd. If you invest so much time and care, why not invest in making a lossless rip of your laserdisc?

A side note on the journalist's writing: "they mounted an arduous pilgrimage" [to a scene location in Spain], made me laugh. I suspect a less dramatic and more accurate reporting would be "they went on vacation to Spain." Smile
