Indiana Jones And The Blu-Ray

Whip up a bowl of chilled monkey brains and don your fedora, because the Indiana Jones collection is coming to Blu-ray later this year. Yes, the Spielberg / Lucas / Ford series will soon be available in high definition for your viewing pleasure.

The really good news is that sound editing legend Ben Burtt and one Steven Spielberg oversaw the hi-def transfer to ensure that it would be as spiffing as possible. Those of you who are technically minded may be pleased to learn that the original negative was scanned at 4k and then examined frame-by-frame for damage.

Burtt, meanwhile, got busy with the sound mix. "The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt’s original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981. New stereo surrounds were created using the original music tracks and original effects recorded in stereo but used previously only in mono. In addition, the sub bass was redone entirely up to modern specifications and care was taken to improve dialogue and correct small technical flaws."

And Temple Of Doom will be uncut, with the gore excised to secure a PG-rating back in 1984 all put back in.

Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, with all four films (but sadly no Young Indiana Jones), hits on October 8.

RE: About time!
L: dannyfletch It's been too long a wait for this release and by the sounds of things I think it has been worth it. Crystal Skull is certainly the weakest of the bunch but I would still give it a watch on a rainy day. Raiders is without doubt the best of the bunch closely followed by Last Crusade.be interesting to see the uncut version of Temple of Doom.ote] You'll be amazed at just how much was cut. I got the Region 1 DVD boxset just so I could finally see the uncut version and w More

Much as I love Young Indy, the SFX don't really stand up on DVD - they'd look awful on Blu Ray. More
