Requests

Hey guys,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to upload.

Remember I can’t just upload any movie, there a few rules that need to be followed in order to “green light” a film, the rules are the following:

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray is available to purchase online.
  2. NEW For British films make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD otherwise I cannot upload it.
  3. Movie was released before the year 2004.
  4. Foreign films applies same rules, if the movie was released on DVD/Bluray but only in country of origin make sure it’s region locked, some studios release them with region 0 and include subtitles, in that case I will not upload them.
  5. Please make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube, it takes me a lot of time to look and upload each film and to see that it’s already up on YT it ends up being a waste of time so make sure to check before requesting it.

Only 1 request each person per month. Actually, you can post 2 requests but the second one will be used only as a backup in case I don’t have the first one.

Note: in order to keep this section as clean as possible and easy to navigate I will delete the comments after the movies are uploaded, for those films that I don’t have I will added them to the WANTED list.

Thanks.

    Thank you for your hard work. Amazing!

    There are several films with the legendary Jean Gabin which still have never been subtitled into English… All of these titles are available on DVD (or VHS) in Europe, but do not have English subtitles:
    “Gloria” (1933)
    “Varietes” (1935)
    “Le Messager” (1938)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “Tonnerre de Dieu” — there are DVD copies circulating, but only in very bad phonetic English (1965)
    “Pour un soir..” (1931)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “La Sang a la Tete” (1952)– very bad phonetic English-subtitled version available online
    “Coeurs joyeux” (1933) — I actually own a very good copy of this on a CD-ROM (but it doesn’t have any English subtitles)
    “La Cas du docteur Laurent” (1956)
    “Drapeau noir flotte sur la marmite” (1971)
    “Paris-Beguin” (1931)
    “Chacun sa Chance” (1930)
    “Verdict” (1974) — Jean Gabin and Sophia Loren.

    Thank you!

    Maybe there are some French-speaking rarefilmm fans who can help to subtitle some of them? (( can dare to dream!)

      For subtitles I find the best site is:

      http://www.opensubtitles.org/ followed by https://subscene.com

      If you can’t find subs in English (or your desired language) or you need to
      resync, adjust or otherwise modify them, I use very good freeware:

      http://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit

      It will do automatic translations using Google which can range from quite good
      to somewhat comical, but mostly you get the idea. To English, I find transations
      from Portuguese, Spanish and Italian to be quite good. From Romanian not bad,
      from French not so good (I think French is much more idiomatic). From Germanic
      and Scandanavian not bad. In any case, you may not get the subtleties of the
      original, but you will understand what’s going on.

      If you are really desparate, there is a Python script which uses speech to text
      libraries to create a subtitle file directly from the film, then uses
      translation libraries (using Google) to translate them. (this part doesn’t work unless you register for a Google API key, so I use subtitleedit to do the translation as they recommend in the instructions below)
      I’ve tried it and the results are reasonable. It drops some of the dialogue but it does handle a good part of it and will give you an idea of what’s going on. Sometimes the results are pretty good and other times not so much. But it is quick (about 5m) and easy, so give it a try. If the results stink you are no worse off.

    Hi Jon,

    You’ve made a ton of progress with the uploads! Hope you understand that.

    Would like to see Codine (1963) directed by Henri Colpi if you have it. Backup would be Atraco a las tres (1962) by José María Forqué.

    Hello, Jon! I’d like to request ‘Uranus (1990)’ starring Gérard Depardieu.

    Also, I requested Nobuhiro Suwa’s ‘M/Other (1999)’ a month or so back. Was wondering if that one was still scheduled to be added to the site in the future?

    Thanks for everything!!

      November 22, 2018

      My bad. It completely slipped my mind that I had already made my monthly request. Sorry. Well, I guess if you can’t find either my 1st request or my alternative request, you can make this my request instead, or just make it my Dec. request.

      Cheers!

        Hi Lemmy,
        It’s all good, don’t worry about it.
        I had some problems trying to get “M/Other” (1999)’ that’s why I didn’t upload it, it’s solved now I will upload that one and “Uranus” as well this month, sorry for the delay.

        All the best,
        Jon.

    Greetings. Back in the late 1970’s I saw this Brazilian Film in a theater in Mill Valley. The plot was that some evil developer was trying to buy all the real estate in this community to redevelop.The community revolted against this plan. I think boulders were rolled down the hill at cars? After they won the people partied; dancing in the streets. Any excuse, these people partied. After seeing this film, our friends and I would say, Let’s Bahia or party. Does anyone know the name of this masterpiece? or where I can find it with English subtitles?

    For some reason I’ve retained the memory of a very positive review of a film called, (I think,) “Barnardo of the Mountains”, released sometime mid 1990’s. All I remember is that it was a partisan war drama so I’m guessing could be from Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, etc.. Haven’t been able to find mention anywhere. Also just to reiterrate a request for “Les noces de papier” (The Paper Wedding) 1989 made for television Canadian film directed by Michel Brault with Genevieve Bujold. Thanks for all the wonderful work. Cheers.
