Both directed by Walter Hill, they stand the test of time rather well, even with bad dudes at the center of the fray being a bit cardboardish.
Both films are represented as “comedies,” but with more blood that one if apt to find in most others of the genre.
Both have had new scans and look terrific via Paramount’s Presents series – these herein numbers 19 and 20, a concept apparently borrowed from Anchor Bay.
Both films look crisp and clean, with nice black levels, quality color and densities, and enough grain to keep those who love the concept happy.
Personally, I don’t care if a modern film has grain or not, as long as it’s pretty, and reasonably represents the original look.
Tracks are beautifully modulated 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, and will fill your proscenium.
