Speed Synopsis LAPD cops Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) and Harry Temple (Jeff Daniels) rescue a group of executives trapped in a sabotaged elevator, thus foiling mad bomber Howard Payne's (Dennis Hopper) ransom demands. In retaliation, Payne sets a new challenge for Traven: a bomb on a city bus which will arm itself when the bus reaches 50 mph, and which will explode if the bus drops below that speed or if any of the passengers try to escape.

Speed 2: Cruise Control Synopsis Annie (Sandra Bullock) and her policeman boyfriend Alex (Jason Patric) decide to take a romantic ocean cruise together. Once at sea, however, one of the passengers, a disgruntled computer genius named Giger (Willem Dafoe), disables the ship. Alex must now foil Giger's plans and bring everyone back safely to shore, but how can he outwit a man who can control the entire ship from his keyboard?

Hij is THX gecertificeerd en van Fox, dus maar hopen dat de EE meevalt...  :(

Sum1,
Ik begrijp wat je bedoelt, maar van de andere kant: X-Men ziet er wel bijzonder aangenaam uit (zeer weinig EE), is ook een anamorphic Fox titel die THX gemastered is. Hoop doet leven ?  ::)

De bestaande DVD release van Speed had volgens mij een DD 5.0 track, toch ?

Wel een leuke pop-corn film om op DVD te hebben (net als Independence Day)

groeten,
Paul

X-Men was ver voor SW:TPM toen hadden ze bij THX het EE knopje nog niet ontdekt...  ;)

Dit jaar komt er ook nog een X-Men Special Edition, misschien nu met EE?  :P

Speed regio 2 is inderdaad 5.0, dus het LFE kanaal doet niks maar met goeie bass managment doet je sub wel lekker mee... Wellicht dat het met de nieuwe mix (?) wat agressiever wordt?

ID4 vind ik trouwens wel een stuk minder dan Speed... Dvd van ID4 is trouwens wel leuk (heb 'm toch ff geleend van een vriend  :-[), heb destijds niet gelet EE... Da's toch ook een FOX 5 star THX? Misschien ook nog voordat de EE knop was ontdekt?  :o

Anyway ik zit maar wat te stangen met die EE, ik hoop natuurlijk ook op leuke Speed SE zonder EE!  ;D

Jullie onderschatten het proces van het smaakvol aanbrengen van dikke lagen EE. En daarmee doen jullie THX te kort vind ik. THX is na een lange onderzoeksfase, waarbij succes lang niet altijd gegarandeerd was, nu in staat, met gelijkblijvende kosten (!), meer en dikkere EE aan te brengen dan iedere andere maatschappij. En daar zijn ze erg trots op. Ik vind het dan ook jammer dat jullie niet wat meer support leveren aan deze pioneers op het gebied van beeldkwaliteit. Met name de inspanningen die verricht werden om ook de bezitters van een 30cm TV, met behulp van stevig EE gebruik,  een 2.35:1 film in optimale scherpte te laten zien, zijn te prijzen.

Groeten,

Ruud

Ik ben er 0ok heel blij mee, want met mijn bijziendheid kan ik nu weer duidelijk de grens van lijntjes zien 8)

Maar niet alle Fox DVD zijn slecht. Helaas hebben ze te veel missers gemaakt om een goede naam te houden..

Iemand nog een speed Laserdisc ? Ik wil deze DVD ook wel natuurlijk.

RuudG,
Ja, je hebt gelijk. Misschien een goed idee om DVD-spelers THX certified te maken en als extra THX feature EE in te bouwen. Deze staat uiteraard altijd aan, voor OPTIMALE scherpte  ;D Wel kun je de dikte van de EE varieren van 10 tot 20 pixels  :o  ;D

Sum1,
Hmmm...daar zeg je wat. X-Men is inderdaad voor Star Wars uitgekomen. En ID4 ook. En ID4 heeft (op de R1) ook nauwelijks EE. Hmmm....there's a pattern in the chaos.  8)

groeten,
Paul

Effe patterntje verpesten. Sound of Music van Fox en in samenwerking met de knoppendraaiers van THX heeft een laag EE die zeer heftig is. En dit is nb. een Five Star Collection uitgave. Het is een uitgave van augustus 2000, dus voor TPM.
