Restore IMAX Sequences to the Home Releases of Marvel Studios Films

#releasetheIMAXcut   Update: Infinity War will be cropped to 2.39:1 for all formats (except for the UK 3D version possibly). This campaign is far from over it seems.   TLDR: IMAX sequences on the home releases of Marvel Studios movies (and Disney films in general) are being cropped to 2.39:1 on all formats except for Blu-ray 3D which is getting harder to come by. It would be prefered to have the option between aspect ratios. Who does this affect: Videophiles, average consumers. Why should you care: You are not even getting close to the full picture of what was originally intended. When scenes are presented in their original aspect ratio or one close to the original as possible, you get more picture and also have a more authentic feeling when watching films at home. Big Description: In the past handful of years, many of the Marvel Studio's films have been filmed at Aspect Ratios (the ratio of height versus width) that are exclusive to IMAX screenings. But the home releases do not have the aspect ratios preserved and are instead severely cropped to a much tighter aspect ratio to conform with the entirety of the film. Such films include (but are not limited to): Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Doctor Strange (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), and Black Panther (2018). To help you understand, please watch these videos; Avengers: Infinity War IMAX® Screen vs. Standard Screen IMAX | The Directors of Avengers Infinity War IMAX | Avengers: Infnity War - Behind the Frame - Ep 1 Here's the rundown of what format gets what Aspect Ratio... UHD Blu-ray: 2.39:1 HD/Blu-ray: 2.39:1 Blu-ray 3D: 2.39:1 and 1.78 - 1.90:1 for IMAX sequences SD/DVD: 2.39:1     For a time, it was accaptable for them to only put the IMAX sequences on the 3D version as the format wasn't entirely barren but most didn't own a 4K tv and those of us who like Blu-ray 3D did still have 3D sets. However, a lot of people own 4K sets now and most don't have 3D compatibility.    ANOTHER ISSUE is that now Disney no longer distributes 3D Blu-rays in the United States and I had to import Thor: Ragnarok 3D from the UK. Meaning that it is getting more and more difficult to get the films at home with IMAX sequences in full frame.   AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR was ENTIRELY shot with IMAX cameras. My fear is that there won't be a home release with the film in full frame. Which would be a shame to crop all of that footage.   Other films have this issue such as Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol where a lot of amazing sequences were shot in IMAX, like the Berj Khalifa climbing scene that gave me vertigo in theaters but it is cropped on the home release. It took a special release and a fan petition to get the IMAX sequences restored to the home release master for Star Trek: Into Darkness (which thankfully the UHD Blu-ray release preserves as well).   I feel this fan petition will be necessary to confirm that at least Avengers: Infinity War gets a home release with IMAX sequences. Please sign this petition and help make sure IMAX footage is no longer thrown away by Disney/Marvel Studios when it comes time for home releases.   Thank you.   To Marvel, Kevin Feige, and the filmakers, We (politely) ask that IMAX sequences be restored to the home releases of all applicable Marvel Studios films as an option to at least the UHD Blu-ray releases, however it would be prefered if all current formats HD and higher get the restoration. A significant portion of the image is being cropped and lost to never be seen again unless a film is re-screened in an IMAX theater. Thank you for making captivating films, and thank you for your time if you do indeed take a look at this petition.  #ReleaseTheIMAXCut -Hashtag courtesy of @SamParkerMetal A new petition against Disney has begun. This time for their awful implementation of Dynamic EQ and Compression of the audio tracks on their recent home releases. This is important because it can definitely disappoint those with decent sub-woofers (      ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Some clarifications are in order as I have seen some people out on reddit and other sites who are not fully aware of some of the details (which is 100% understandable).   Digital IMAX Cameras capture footage in an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, IMAX film cameras capture footage at 1.43:1. Digital/DLP IMAX Theaters have 1.90:1 Screens while currently IMAX Laser and Film Theaters have 1.43:1 Screens (IMAX is trying to push out new laser projectors for the Digital/DLP IMAX Theaters for the 1.90:1 Screens).  Infinity War was filmed digitally on the custom Arri Alexa 65 IMAX cameras at an AR of 1.90:1. Films like the Dark Knight and Star Trek Into Darkness were filmed with IMAX film Cameras at an AR of 1.43:1 If you have any questions please feel free to ask them in the comments and I will be happy to answer them or point you in the right direction.   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Petition to The Walt Disney Company

Bring back the Spectrobes franchise

The members of the New Spectrobes Amino have resolved to call out to Disney and request another game in the Spectrobes franchise. Spectrobes was a trilogy of games released between 2007 and 2009, headed by Kentaro Hisai, developed by Jupiter, and published by the (now defunct) Buena Vista Games/Disney Interactive Studios. It saw fair reviews and shipped just under 1.5 million copies throughout its run. In an interview with RPGFan during E3 2009, series creator Kentaro Hisai stated the following:"I have lots of ideas and places I'd like to take the franchise. We have plenty of material for future games. What we'll do now, as we've done in the past, is wait until this new game gets into players' hands and receive feedback. As we hear back from the fans about what they've enjoyed and where they'd like to see the franchise go in the future, we'll mix those ideas with the ones our staff have already come up with." However, we have heard nothing on the franchise since 2009, whether it be from Disney, any of the previous games' developers, or Hisai-san himself. This almost 9 years of silence makes no sense, since the franchise was very promising with its ideas and gameplay. We are asking Disney (or their games subsidiary, Disney Interactive), to publish a new game within the Spectrobes franchise after this nine year gap; or, at the very least, explain why a new Spectrobes game hasn't been made for so long.

Save Club Penguin!

Club Penguin has been a household game since 2005. Millions of kids experienced this great game and it caused memories that will last a lifetime. Today, January 30th, a terrible news has struck. Club Penguin has been slated to shut down. Seeing this news has caused many people to be heartbroken. All the fun, amazing, and incomparable experiences that millions of us prior and current kids once enjoyed are now impossible to once again achieve to a future generation of kids.  Club Penguin is being replaced by a mobile app called "Club Penguin Island". While it is true that the mobile industry is growing, the PC industry is still going strong. People want to continue to play the original great game that was once introduced to us on October 24th, 2005. It is obvious that the popularity of the PC version declined, but that is not simply because the mobile market has grown. It is because the desktop version has lost what it made it so great in the first place: love. The amazing parties every weekend, the new exciting unique items, the new missions we could encounter, and the great mysteries that surrounded the island. That is what created the greatest children's game of all time! An amazing experience. This is something Lance Priebe, Lane Merrifield and Dave Krysko once envisioned, and executed greatly. Disney was a great help by delivering Club Penguin's amazing experiences around the world. However as the years progressed, the originality disappeared from parties and clothes and the parties became sponsored and recycled.  We love the idea that Club Penguin is coming to mobile, as most games do, but the desktop version is what started it all. The base. The desktop version was the perfect creation, which at one time was the most popular kid's game of all time. It was like that for a reason. The vision that was once placed into Club Penguin simply isn't there anymore; That doesn't mean it should be left in the dust! The Club Penguin desktop version is a formula for success, and it can be successful once again if executed properly.  What we propose today is a voice that will STRIVE to continue Club Penguin on the desktop platform. We ask Disney to either reconsider their decision and keep Club Penguin on the desktop while giving us the brand new app, or we request that Disney passes the desktop version to another company who will still sees the value in the PC gaming platform. Even better, return it to its original owner, Lance Priebe, if he is willing to accept it. Many of us have moved on from Club Penguin, but the experiences and memories we grasped from that game is something that no other game can come close to challenge. We want these same experiences and memories to be experienced by kids today and in the future. This is something we are willing to fight for, and none of us will let up.
