    International BLU-RAY DISCS FROM GERMANY

    Has anyone bothered with White Line Fever and Kill them All And Come Back Alone? I just received both of them along with High Wind In Jamaica and will be watching them projected sometime this week - hopefully the transfers on the first two will be decent, I understand High Wind is passable...

    The Ghost and the Darkness needs a new transfer

    I will say this much - if one likes the film and nothing else is forthcoming it is at least passable, and by no means that terrible. When watching I never got the feeling that I was looking at something that was unviewable or that was in need of a major restoration or rescan etc. Of course that...

    International BLU-RAY DISCS FROM GERMANY

    For those of you thinking of The Hunters I ordered a copy a couple of weeks ago and hopefully will receive it before too long - perhaps anyone who might have it can chime in on the video and audio quality, otherwise stay tuned.

    Where Eagles Dare at 50...

    Makes you wonder how many rounds they went through and how quickly they were able to reload!

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Seven Brides for Seven Brothers -- in Blu-ray

    I deleted the original post when I realized the audio problem was in my system - just finished viewing and while quality and sharpness varies it can look very good and yes the soundtrack is nice as well. One should not be too picky when considering the effort that was required to bring it to blu...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Seven Brides for Seven Brothers -- in Blu-ray

    Thought there was an audio issue with the blu ray but my centre channel at one of the interconnects decided to act up but all is well - I have to say though that the film itself looks alright, not exceptional though it is quite an improvement over the dvd, decent sharpness and color as it varies...

    The Ghost and the Darkness needs a new transfer

    I purchased the latest version and frankly, projected onto a 128" 2:35 screen it looked pretty decent to me, screen shots do not usually feel the whole story - although no expert I usually notice over sharpening, dnr, etc. and it looks very acceptable. Perhaps you could elaborate for those...

    International New to Region-Free. PLEASE Recommend Some Other Region Blu-rays!

    I enjoy the same genres myself so all of the titles I listed are older films - except for The Core, K20, The Round Up and Sophie Scholl - all interesting in their own way. The Core is one of those Sci Fi guilty pleasures ( we all have them! ) that is nonsensical but what can I say? K20 is a...

    International BLU-RAY DISCS FROM GERMANY

    With a caution regarding one's display and how well it is set up, as I mentioned, projected I certainly found the blu ray of The Bravados quite good and worth purchasing. That screen cap looks darker than I remember!

    International New to Region-Free. PLEASE Recommend Some Other Region Blu-rays!

    Not knowing your tastes at least we can give you some insight, for myself here are a few: The Naked Prey ( UK ) Lonely Are The Brave ( Germany ) Foreign Legion ( France ) The Last Wagon ( Germany ) The Bravados ( Germany ) Bandolero ( Germany ) The Tall Men ( Germany ) The Devil's Brigade (...

    International BLU-RAY DISCS FROM GERMANY

    Another heads up regarding The Bravados - while it is definitely saturated, in a pleasing way I might add it can be seemingly a tad "dark" - then again considering the numerous day for night scenes rather expected, overall I thought it looked very good, sharp and detailed, this from being...

    International Night Passage (1957) out now in France

    I always enjoyed this film for the most part, especially the shots of the steam engine traveling along the river - also, the part earlier where the engine is sitting and James Stewart's character enters the coach prior to being hired is great for steam buffs when the engine's whistle echoes off...

    International Lawman 1971

    I believe it is Region B locked as well - if the source used ends up being the same if one can play a B disc I would say the savings are pretty good. I will of course comment on the video quality when it arrives.

    International Lawman 1971

    Looks like this has been released in Germany, one individual on another forum mentioned it looked good for what it is worth. I just ordered this gem from Grooves for a very low price - check them out while they have it in stock. Anyone who knows of this film realizes just what a great...

    James Stewart Westerns

    Also from Explosive Media ( Germany ) is Bandolero! - looks pretty good too although Region B locked. If you did not catch the announcement Flight Of The Phoenix will be released in the U.K. in September.
