U2 Video Remasters
« on: August 15, 2020, 12:11:36 PM »
I've been looking at a bunch of 4k remasters of old music videos today, where they go back to the original film negatives and get a good quality rip of them and/or clean the image up with digital trickery. 

Here's a couple good ones, Wham's Last Christmas and The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony:


Think we'll get any 4k remasters of old U2 videos?  If so, which ones would you be most keen to see fixed up like this?

says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

not a bad idea as long as u2 themselves have nothing to do with it in any way shape or form

I am hard pressed to think of a single video I even like.

Sweetest Thing and Stay, maybe.

The Pride video is pretty simple, but I do like it.  Desire and Still Haven't Found as well.  I'd most want to see some of the Achtung Baby videos in HD though, Even Better Than the Real Thing, The Fly, One. 

Also old concerts, if they shot Sydney or Red Rocks on film and could make high def rips, that would be awesome

Old concerts...that's got my vote. Heck, new concerts, too!
