For those with Region free players like myself there are a few good titles coming out during Feb. / March in Germany:

 

 

Coogan's Bluff   ( 1968 )   Koch Media Feb.20

 

Man Without A Star   ( 1955 )   Alive Feb.28

 

Backlash ( 1956 ) Alive   Feb.28

 

The Revengers  ( 1972 )   Explosive Media   March 7

 

Monte Walsh ( 1970 ) Explosive Media   March 7

 

Prime Cut ( 1972 )   Explosive Media   March 7

 

Violent City  ( 1970 )   Alive March 14

 

Bedazzled ( 1967 )   Alive   March 14

 

 

 

 

 

I hope to purchase all of them eventually, Explosive Media in particular seems to be bringing out nicely restored titles, such as the western Bandolero! which looks great.

'Twould be nice if Warner released Prime Cut on BD, even if it was an Archive release.

There's some good stuff released in Germany, but also some not so good stuff. Looking at Amazon Germany, I see the Blu-ray of the sixties movie Gambit is zoomed in from 'scope to 16:9, I thought that sort of thing was a thing of the past, esp. as a very nice HD 'scope version has been showing on UK TV. So best to read a report or two before ordering.

Paramount put out the DVD -- it was originally released theatrically by National General Pictures. I'm assuming they still have the rights. It would make a helluva Shout Factory title if they ever have another deal with Paramount (the way they did WALKING TALL).

Yes, but since Warner is handling an awful lot of Paramount titles from this era, and has several NGC titles in its own catalogue, more likely to be a Warner release than a Paramount one.

The Coogan's Bluff DVD is a grain storm. I'm interested to know what this BRD looks like.

The question is: is it real grain, or is it digital noise?

If it's the latter, I hope they do/did something about it. Is it grain, I hope they keep their fingers away from the filters. :unsure:

If you are interested here is a fun little podcast about Prime Cut to listen to as you wait for the release of the blu-ray.

I don't know if it's grain or noise. What I do know is that film did not look like that when it was first released.

Any word yet on how any of these look?  LOVE PRIME CUT and MONTE WALSH, so those are my top priorities.
