Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (97 movies items)

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★½ NOTES: A few shots looked cloned, most of the changeover cuts destroyed several transitions and there were a few brief frame cuts that in particular botched one of Henri’s ‘never’s, but a good print for what you’d expect nonetheless. Cut out the Don Bluth logo but did keep in the rating card, the full Universal logo, the Amblin logo and the Universal Studios bumper, basically everything the Land Before Time print forgot to include. DATE: August 11"
