OK, so a while back, I contacted the Warner Bros online store and asked them if they they had any plans to release "Dial M For Murder" and "House of Wax" in field sequential 3D. I got the usual stock answer of "no plans as of yet" etc.
Frustrated with the quality of the field sequential version that is around I decided to have a go at my own version from various sources. Please be aware that as of today, I have bought 3 different versions of this film on DVD so I think that about covers any areas of concern over bootlegging etc. I don't sell any of my conversions...they are purely for my own personal home use.
I have nearly finalised my own home made 3D side by side version of this film and I have to say, in a few places it looks wonderful (more on that in a bit) whereas the other 95% of the film is a huge improvement on the bootleg field sequential version around.
For anyone interested, here is the method I am using.
I bought both the restored region 1 release and the Korean region 0 version.
DVDBeaver has a side by side comparison of each release http://www.dvdbeaver.com/FILM/DVDReviews5/dialmformurder.htm
I discovered, thanks to DVDBeaver's observations, that there are 9 minutes and 5 seconds of the 3D film contained within both versions. After a little bit of colourising and sharpening the poorer quality korean version, I have managed to come up with a near perfect quality 3D side by side version of these particular scenes. For the rest of the film, I have taken the restored colour from the warner DVD release and transferred it to the field sequential version. Sadly, the japanese subtitles from the field sequential version are still in one eye...but they now appear transparent and don't detract much. There are a lot of scenes where there is no dialogue and hence no subtitles.
I am proud to say that I must now own one of the very few examples of near perfect side by side 3D to the film "Dial M For Murder". I have to state that this is purely for my own use and I do not sell or trade these conversions. I would be happy though to put up a short clip of a scene for anyone interested if it doesn't infringe any copyright rules here.
Could anyone point me to a decent free file hosting site please?
