    5 new Criterions in January, including Kagemusha!

    More Suzuki films is great news. And KAGEMUSHA? Even better news.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: 3 Godzilla titles

    These films have always gotten tons of disrespect (some of it earned, some of it not), so I'm never surprised to see yet someone else take easy potshots at the films. But its no big deal, as long time fans are surely used to it by now. I think the majority of Godzilla films are a case of either...

    Ren and Stimpy advance reviews

    I buckled and bought the set. I agree that the fade in/outs are distracting but I guess I can live with that. As far as the cuts: The theory behind the missing "whistling grandpa" scene is an interesting one (regarding John K. not liking the addition of the whistling). That also might...

    Is Miramax going to release Zatoichi by itself?

    Yikes, that looks like an ad, rather than an actual cover. If it turns out that really is the cover, Miramax has clearly outdone their ugly KILL BILL Vol 2 cover. Anyway, it would be nice if SONATINE was offered separately (like it was originally announced at one point) because I already...

    Sony's Blu-Ray accepts WM9

    Yep, I saw a Blu-Ray recorder for sale in Japan last November and it cost over $4000.00. I think that since then, they are already down to about $2000.00 though.

    Fox's The Young Master -- Misframed?

    Yes, thanks for letting them know about the problems, Matt. The discs are hard to find in my neck of the woods, too. Only found some of them at the local Futureshop, and that's all I've seen anywhere. Strange, considering the previous waves were widely available everywhere.

    Sergio Corbucci's "The Mercenary" aka "A Professional Gun" DVD review/questions

    I don't think any of the Japanese "Macaroni Western Bible" titles have English subs. Too bad, because some of the titles in the series don't include an English soundtrack.

    Fox's The Young Master -- Misframed?

    I'm disappointed to hear this. I was looking forward to picking this up and was expecting it to look as great as their other releases. Anyone know how OPERATION SCORPIO looks?

    Found Magnificent Butcher, Naked Killer and others.Do I buy? Quality?

    The Fox HK DVD's I've seen so far look great. The remixed audio isn't too bad except for, as mentioned, EASTERN CONDORS. That DVD unfortunately sounds terrible, I found it very distracting. (too bad because its a good film and the picture quality is the best I have ever seen for this film, it...

    QT Talks "Kill Bill" dvd

    Yes, the Japanese print runs approx. 2 minutes longer. The B&W fight scene is shown in colour and other reported differences include: a bit more added to the anime sequence, more blood in the fight scenes and you get to see what other damage the Bride inflicts on Sophie Fatale. I'm seeing...

    GODZILLA is coming!

    Cover art: http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=5895 Nice, I can now replace my HK R3 discs. Anamorphic and 5.1! GMK was indeed excellent. GXM was a bit weak, but any Goji is OK with me.

    Sticker residue

    I swear by lighter fluid, it works great. It even safely removes sticker and sticker residue from cardboard or paper (but use sparingly and quickly wipe off the excess).

    *** Official KILL BILL VOLUME 1 Discussion Thread

    I agree, Chuck. I saw the movie 8 hours ago and I still can't get it out of my mind. That doesn't happen to me very often. And yes, QT always knows how to make great use of source music in his films, he picks just the right song for just the right moment. Glad I picked up the soundtrack CD.

    *** Official KILL BILL VOLUME 1 Discussion Thread

    I saw the film today and loved it! It was definitely as good as I hoped it would be. Uma was great, the fight scenes were awesome and the film had many references to other films that were fun to catch. The "Shawscope" intro was a very cool touch that put a smile on my face. At that point I...

    Saw a bootleg dvd at a retail store

    In the pre-DVD days, I remember a local store that bought and sold used VHS tapes had a bunch of boots of British horror videos (Hammer titles then unavailable in the US, Redemption titles etc). It was funny because the sleeves were obviously copies and clearly had "PAL" and the British rating...

    Any chance the Herzog/Kinski Box will be back in print?

    Are you sure its out of print? I just saw the set the other day at Mediaplay and I believe I saw it a couple months ago at Borders. Of course, up here in Canada, I've never seen it anywhere, so you might have to take a road trip south of the border to pick one up.

    Indiana Jones bonus dvd at Future Shop

    The ad describes the DVD as a "classic featurette", so I'm assuming it will be some short "making of" or puff piece that previously appeared somewhere else. Aren't the Best Buy bonus discs usually nothing special? (I've never gotten one)

    Exclusive to Laserdisc - help compiling a comprehensive list!

    I found this thread very useful for giving me info I can use to fill in my LD collection. One little bit of info I can add to the original poster's listing, is that the Holmes documentary on the Criterion Boogie Nights LD is a condensed version of "Exhausted", which I believe is on DVD in...

    Fox's City Hunter release

    Thanks Jeff, for clearing up the whole Fox/Fortune Star/HKL situation. Its really a shame about Naked Killer. I had heard that the Fox DVD was cut, but I found it on sale for about 11.00 CDN and picked it up anyway, hoping that the cuts weren't too bad. I was especially disappointed to see...

    Films of Zhang Yimou on DVD

    All region players are great of course (I love mine) but if you want Hero, you don't even need one. The currently available discs are NTSC and I'm pretty sure R0. I'm anxiously awaiting a nice release of Raise the Red Lantern. Its one of my favourite Zhang films.
