This definitive Leone collection of the most ambitious and influential Westerns ever made includes more than five hours of special features that uncover buried gold in these gritty classics – plus a NEWLY REMASTERED version of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

$30 is a bit outrageous for a reissue.

 

Will wait for a hopeful Fox sale to pick this up half price.

Which will happen between now and the end of the year.

I don't have any of the movies on Blu-ray so $30 seems like a fair (but not a great) price to me. Now if I only needed The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, I'd definitely wait for a great sale or the individual release before paying $30.

I just hope The Good, The Bad and The Ugly doesn't look so bad and ugly anymore, hopefully it's now good.

This confirms that they only remastered the one movie instead of all 3.  Pretty lame if you ask me.

 

$30 is a pretty fair price for me.  I unloaded the earlier blu-rays of the trilogy in anticipation for upgrades, but this set is (sadly) an acceptable compromise since at this point I doubt they're going to bother remastering the other two anytime soon.

That's acceptable.

 

My situation is different.  I just want the one film on Blu-ray.  Already own the 

original set.  So, for me, spending $30 on this would be a complete waste.

 

I think there are many in a similar situation.  When it goes on Fox 50% off sale

for $15, that's a no-brainer to buy.

And no mono mix on TGTBTU, sadly. But I guess it is because the deleted scenes were never once recorded in English, only Italian.

 

Oh well. At least I can look for that Magnetic Video version from 1981 (a 2-tape-set) if I ever wanna see it in 100% analog English mono.

The first two films looked just as bad as GB&TU did in the first set, so this re-issue is garbage to me.

This re-issue is a total waste for many of us.

 

I know Fox reads this forum.  I hope they realize that they aren't doing any

of us any favors by making us have to repurchase the same set over again

just to get the re-mastered version of TGTB&TU.

 

They tried doing the same thing with the recent ROCKY collection.  Thankfully,

at the last minute, they released a single Blu-ray release of the re-mastered first film.

 

At the moment, that doesn't appear to be the case here.  Of course, we all know

that within the next 6 months or so, the remastered TGTB&TU will suddenly be 

available as a single Blu-ray release.

 

I generally love everything Fox does, but I just wish the studio would stop playing

this game of placing remastered titles into large sets that people already own instead

of making them available as singles. Is it really necessary to milk consumers this way?

And yet a restored, 4K A Fistful of Dollars is playing at Cannes.

A French wesite has seen the new 4K Good bad and the ugly BR (French import which should be similar to the US one), a few screengrabs (between the first edition in 2009 and the new one) can be found :

I don't trust those caps. The 2009 looks far too blue & the 2014 looks F-A-R too yellow. No rush to buy this one, I'll sit back & see what people say about it.

Mono is on TGTBTU.  Check the specs again for disc 3.

Yes. It says "English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Dolby Digital 1.0, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1."

 

No mention of Mono anywhere.

"English Dolby Digital 1.0" is mono. I suppose it doesn't specifically state original mono and it COULD be the 5.1 mix collapsed down to one speaker but I'll think positive and assume that it's the original.

"No mention of Mono anywhere."

Mono can be both 1.0 or 2.0. If you use Pro Logic from your receiver, you'll get the sound from the "front center only" with both options. So technically it doesn't really matter whether the mono is 1.0 or 2.0.

I'll be getting this set. I only have these on DVD. I think.

One can only hope that those caps are off 'cause they look dreadful. Did someone soak the film in urine?

A quick point (question?).

 

Has any seen a 4K remaster that's a duff yet?

 

Surely at this stage, after all the mistakes made with DNR, etc. on Blu-ray Disc releases, they're only going to go to the time, trouble and (let's face it) expense of creating a 4K master if they want it out there exactly as it should look.

 

I don't believe they'd really go to the trouble of a 4K scan and then let someone 'experiment' with the colour.
