F13 on Paramount+ Empty F13 on Paramount+

I recently subscribed to Paramount+ and was surprised that parts 3 and 4 were not included in the streaming service, but 1,2 and 5-8 are. Does anyone know why that would be?

It all comes down to distribution rights. Streaming rights for these movies expire all the time, allowing the distributors to shop these films to any platform willing to pay up. The funny thing is, last October Paramout+ only had the rights to part 3 & 4, while the rest of the Paramount 8 were on Pluto TV and some other service but I can't currently remember which one... Might've been Amazon. Now it's the other way around. It makes more since why they separate the Paramount and New Line Films, two differen't studios involved there. Not sure why WB/New Line would separate 3 & 4 from the rest of the original 8 unless it was just more finically lucrative for them to distribute the films that way.

Agreed!!

But also, has anyone tried watching Part 1 on Paramount+ and found that the sound and picture are way off? It's like that on every TV I've tried it on. I would normally watch my Blu Ray, but a couple TVs in my house don't have a player connected.

How do you mean it looks off is it the colors? Blurry?

I took a peek at the movie at it looks perfectly normal to me... There is that grainy low-budget film quality that was common in low budget horror movies from the mid-70' and throughout the 80's. If you're used to watching these films on some of those digitally remastered blue-ray sets, maybe you're just used to that look, so something just feels off when you see the film how it was originally intended to look? That's just purely a guess on my part though.

Personally, I've always liked the grainy look to older films like this, it adds to the atmosphere. TCM in particular benefits greatly from the film quality being a product of it's time.

Yep I watched the first two last night….. they are presented in their original format high grain old school film…….with no DNR (digital noise reduction) which is used to clean up film grain and reduce judder in films a lot of the newer releases on blu-ray and digital have been put through a DNR restoration so that would explain why this version looks a little off…..
