I had picked up JC from the last Kino sale. The transfer looks really good, I had never heard of this film. The story was typical exploitation/easy rider clone which is too bad because it really could have been more with the right script. I was hoping for a modern savior type film on a bike...
I picked up the following, about half are blind buys:
633 Squadron/Mosquito Squadron
The French Conspiracy
J.C. (never seen this but the synopsis is just over the top)
Last Year at Marienbad (I bought this before, but I foolishly let someone borrow it)
Thank you for the...
I placed an order on 10/21 and received a shipment notification yesterday. Most of my titles were back ordered so i knew ahead of time it might be awhile but it’s a change from my usual extremely fast completed orders from KL. Guess it’s a good thing they had such a response during this past sale.
I realize it already has a bluray release, but it would be nice to get the TV cut of Midway (1976) out of this deal. I think I saw it elsewhere that there is an existing Japanese (?) release of this.
EDIT: Another one I thought of was A Gathering of Eagles. That would make for a nice bluray...
With regards to the current sale, I'm on the fence about White Zombie. I enjoyed the film but haven't seen the KL release. The reviews seem mostly positive but have heard good things about the Cary Raon edition too. The sale price for the KL edition seems pretty good. What are your opinions?
I mentioned it in the other Kino Lorber thread, but Broken Arrow with James Stewart and Jeff Chandler looks great. The transfer is beautiful and is a very good upgrade from the old DVD. A definite must buy for Western fans and Stewart/Chandler fans.
