Brief Synopsis:
Between remastering the International Cut (a.k.a. European Theatrical Cut) and reconstructing the US network broadcast cut, I'm sure many of you know that Ridley Scott's 1985 fantasy film, Legend, is one of my favorite films. Having done those edits within the past few months, I decided to reconstruct the UK broadcast television cut for completion sake. The UK television cut, from what I read, is an oddity like the US television cut: whereas the US television cut is essentially the American theatrical print with the Director's Cut (though known only as a workprint during its original creation) version of two sequences with their original music, the UK television cut is also the American theatrical print, with the Tangerine Dream soundtrack, but with the shots of the chef chopping the man on the table omitted, which is quite interesting. Why would the American print be used for UK broadcast instead of the International Cut? Who could really know for certain at this point, but it's still an interesting choice that I wanted to preserve, and do so I have.

For curiosity, posterity and completion sake, I am proud to present Legend: The U.K. TV Cut.

Brief Synopsis:
Legend: The U.S. TV Cut is another personal passion project that has a special place in my heart. I have very fond memories associated with this film, and they have followed me into adulthood, compelling me to do this project. My interest in creating this project would be ignited when I came across a site dedicated to the film and saw various mentions of the TV Cut; the site even had a complete breakdown of the TV Cut written up! After giving a thorough readthrough of the breakdown, I had it in my mind that I was going to recreate this cut to the best of my ability.

Brief Synopsis:
After reconstructing the TV cut of Legend and finally replacing an old DVD I had of the Euro cut, I decided I wanted to update the 11-year-old HD transfer of the European theatrical cut using the Arrow Video restoration. This idea was also spurred on by the fact that Arrow Video had the footage for Euro Cut on hand and included bits and pieces of it in a bonus feature available on their set, but weren't allowed to release a restoration of the cut because of rights issues and no cooperation on the part of a certain House of Mouse. So I am glad to present the European theatrical cut of Legend restored.

Brief Synopsis:
I made this for my own personal use a while back since seeing this movie in IMAX was one of the most impressive theater experiences I've ever had, and I'm a sucker for IMAX/Open Matte movies. This takes multiple sources, including a German Open Matte HDTV broadcast and the official opening credits by the company that made them, and blends them together to replicate as best as possible what I remember that experience to be.

Brief Synopsis:
Scream: one of the most beloved horror franchises to come out of the 90s, which still endures to this day. Being a fan of the franchise since my youth, and greatly excited by the release of Scream VI, I found myself outlining several Scream-related projects I wanted to pursue over the course of this year, and the first one on my list was restoring Wes Craven's original cut of the first film to the best of my abilities. The Director's Cut of Scream has only ever been available on very few releases, all of which were SD: laserdisc, VHS, and DVD.

After acquiring the 2002 Japanese Pioneer Entertainment Region 2 DVD, and studying as much material as I could find on the net regarding the Director's Cut, I immediately began this project. Sourcing the SD Director's Cut from the DVD and the recent HD transfer of the film via 2021 remastered Blu-ray, I was able to reconstruct and restore this highly sought after original vision of this beloved film as best as I could. I am proud to present Scream: Director's Cut in full HD.

Brief Synopsis:
Texhnolyze takes place in the city of Lux, a man-made underground city that has crumbled after years of neglect and lack of repairs. Citizens of Lux have come to refer to their home as simply "The City" and treat it as though it has a mind and will of its own. Three major factions battle to control Lux: Organo, a group of "professionals" who collaborate with the criminal underworld that controls Texhnolyze (prosthetics); the Salvation Union, a populist group that seeks to disrupt Organo's business; and Racan, a collection of young individuals with Texhnolyzes that use their abilities for personal gain.

Ichise was once an orphan who has made a place for himself in Lux as a prize fighter. One day, a fight promoter grows angry with him and the altercation that follows results in Ichise losing an arm and a leg. Before death can take him, Ichise is found by the scientist Eriko Kamata, who uses him as a test subject for her newly designed Texhnolyze. With these powerful new limbs at his disposal, Ichise begins to work for Oonishi, the leader of Organo. He soon meets a mysterious young girl, Ran, who has the power to see possible futures. Together, they soon realize that Lux is on the brink of war and collapse, and that they may be the only ones who can save The city. Texhnolyze takes the audience into an Wellsian dystopia in which hope is scarce and evil is unbound.

Brief Synopsis:
On 30th October 2014 BBC3 screened a new version of Nicholas Winding Refn's 2011 film 'Drive' with an all-new score of original music. It was curated by Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe with the full co-operation of the Director. So it's one of those rare "Official Fanedits".

Zane Lowe has insisted that it's not meant to be an improvement on the original, only an alternate take while Refn has stated "You can't own creativity. Rather than say 'Drive' is mine, I'd prefer to say it's everyone else's". Good idea or not, it's a brave experiment, so Lowe and his pick of artists deserve points for having the bottle to even attempt this in the first place.

ORIGINAL DIRECTOR'S CUT [HD 1080p]
This full-length, original director's cut was only shown in theaters for a couple of days when the film premiered, before being recut due to negative audience reaction. It was never released on VHS, LD or DVD or BD.
Runtime : 01:58:46

THEATRICAL CUT [HD 1080p]
This version runs 15 minutes shorter than the original director's cut. It was recut by John Boorman the day after the premiere of the film, and was released in theaters worldwide, then on VHS. This was the only version of The Heretic available for more than 15 years. It then completely vanished when the film was released in a different cut, first on the VHS re-edition in 1993, then on DVD in 2002. Although this rare theatrical cut misses many scenes, it also features some additional footage exclusive to this version. Some scenes are ordered differently. It includes an added flashback scene, stock footage of Regan as the demon, extra gore, and a different ending. Some of the music and sound effects are also noticably different.
Runtime : 01:43:05

Since it was broadcast, I've been meaning to do a "Preservation DVD" for my own convenience collecting together the entire BBC 2007 'Comics Britannia' documentary season. It's about 9 hours of documentaries about comic books that have never been commercially released (And probably never will be). Apart from the material covering the British industry, there are also superb films about Herge/Tintin, Jean Giraud Moebius, Steve Ditko/Spiderman and Superman.

Few movies have reached the iconic status of the original Star Wars trilogy. A long-shot science fiction project that was rejected by multiple Hollywood studios, Star Wars (and its creator George Lucas) defied the skeptics and became one of the biggest pop culture phenomena of all time. Now VH1 is working with Lucasfilm to produce the ultimate oral history of the Star Wars years, When Star Wars Ruled the World. Timed to coincide with the DVD release of the original trilogy on September 21, 2004, this hour-long documentary will take viewers back to those rapturous moments when the whole world wanted to wield a light saber.

Brief Synopsis:
Edgar Wright made this film first during High School. He later remade it on a budget of £10,000 and shot it entirely in the English county of Somerset. It was picked up and distributed for a couple years on VHS before disappearing into obscurity - unlike Mr Wright himself. Don't expect the snazzy editing and pace of Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, but a fledgling director who even back then was doing a fairly decent job.
