    Just wondering if anyone has the Japanese edition of 'Red Sun' ( dodgy but fun 70s western with Toshiro Mifune & Charles Bronson )
    http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=TBD-1027
    I picked up a copy from Brazil recently ( under the title 'Sol Vermelho' ) but the picture quality left a lot to be desired, the movie looking in dire need of a digital remaster. Several skips in the soundtrack and an unusually dark picture - not enough to spoil my enjoyment but at the same time nowhere near the standard that a DVD should be. Anyone know if the Japanese edition is any better?

    I haven't got it, but I thought I'd just mention that it is available cheap in Scandinavia as well, in a 4:3 transfer.
    I have no idea how the quality is, but judging from the track record of the company involved, I'd pretty sure it's not too good...
    This DVD has subtitles in Swedish, Danish, Finnish and Norwegian.
