Alphaville's subtitles need to be re-done tbh. They're on the cusp of experience-ruining. The site's review noting that they're fine is definitely not the case.

So incorrectly pitched audio doesn’t matter. Sure thing, dude.

At least now everyone knows exactly how much you guys really care about correct presentations of the films you release.

Mind giving examples? I don't own it, so I'm curious if they're as bad as you're implying.

Here's my post from the thread where I went into detail:

The main issue is missing lines by way of dialogue being displayed too long, leaving lines untranslated. It's not constant but it's there. There is also an instant of what appeared to my ears English/French spoken by one character, and this particular sequence is entirely unsubtitled.

It's a shame because the encode on this is pretty much perfection.
I can't really screencap these since they're mostly timing-related, aside from instances where there are no subtitles during dialogue.
It's still watchable, but it's enough that I noticed and got annoyed. The subtitles should not be like the way they are.

They've botched subtitles before. The Park Is Mine were incorrectly coded at the end of every line, leaving symbols after the words. The Emerald Forest had only the Indian language subbed, but they advertised it as a full SDH.

When people complained about The Park is Mine subs being wrong, the old "Insider" attacked them and said "people wanted them so we put them on there, people are never happy." So, typical response from them.

At the risk of getting chewed-out by certain parties; that's embarrassing. lol

The issue of missing lines isn't uncommon with subtitling. Often, subtitles have to simplify the dialogue or eliminate pieces that aren't "essential" to understanding what the characters are saying to be able to fit the dialogue onto the screen without being visually intrusive and/or only include enough dialogue that the person reading it can finish it before the next line appears.

I don't know if this is the case with this release, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were.

At least if that company stuffs it up, they'll have a 100% higher chance of issuing a replacement disc

Here's a link to the cheaper Blu-ray only option, because why pay an extra 10 pounds for a DVD :P

Obviously the Kino is not the same frame, but you can see that the aspect ratio of Kino's disc is exactly the same as the 2011 2K master, NOT the new 2019 4K one, which is wider and shows more info on both sides. They were given the wrong master for Coronets, but not sure about the other two, or if different masters even exist for them.

But Coronets should definitely be recalled and the proper master released, if they are actually claiming it's the new StudioCanal 4K restoration, which it is not.

I've been watching subtitled content for years, I understand how it works. There are sections of the film, including one scene that is entirely unsubtitled. These are not typical moments that aren't always subtitled. (like repeated uses of 'oui' and the like)I don't know how else to put it.

There's a scene with a closed captioned style sound effect that appears, for a single instance and no other time. I don't know how else to put it. There are instances that are incorrectly timed. I don't know how else to put it.

If you want me to rip the disc and cut those scenes and upload them for you I'd be more than happy to.

I don't have a single subtitled disc in my collection, live action or otherwise, that has subtitles like this one. It is not consistent scene to scene.

Check the disc first before you assume I don't know how subtitling works.

When I worked for Old H.A.T. the (not entirely accurate) running joke was that he'd only made ten films but he'd made each of them half a dozen times. He always preferred working from public domain literary properties, and his flat was full of them (the combination of name recognition and no royalties was irresistible to him) but if he ever actually had to pay for the rights to something - Fu Manchu, Harry Palmer, And then There Were None - he was damn well going to get his money's worth out of it and squeeze it until the pips squeaked. To the very end he had plans for another Fu Manchu film and another version of And Then There Were None.

Is there any word yet on BLACKMAIL?

The BFI-restored silent version looks stunning.

However, both included versions of the "talkie" version seem to have issues, as I mentioned earlier.

The version on disc 2, labelled as 1.20 (which would be the OAR), appears to be squished to around 1.10.

I'm unclear about the reason for the apparently stretched 1.33 version being included on disc 1.

I would definitely like to hear Kino's comments on this.

Kino wouldn't deem that an issue that warrants a replacement, as shown by their recent definition of what is and isn't "warranted".

Hint : Essentially nothing, including incorrect pitch, aspect ratio or even a case of digitally erasing the coin in a cartoon that revolves around said coin warrants a replacement

They chose to include the two different versions, so I'm sure they have their reason. It certainly cost them more to have 2 discs, with two transfers of the "talkie" version. I prefer to give them the benefit of the doubt until I hear directly from them.

That said, the 1.20 version seems to be a simple technical mistake. It's clearly labeled 1.20 on the disc, so they obviously intended to present it that way, in its OAR. Something must have gone wrong in the mastering, resulting in the squished 1.10 final product. A replacement disc 2 would seem warranted.

The BFI silent version looked the best but other than not being as restored, both sound versions looked fine to me and I looked at all 3 pretty closely. I didn't notice any problems at all. I think DvdBeaver has an ax to grind.

do you have the Criterion dvd to compare to? I don't remember any problems spoken about their release.

I unfortunately do not. I doubt the scene that's unsubtitled is also unsubtitled on theirs though.
