Can't wait to get this in the mail. Hoping to stoke the fire with some reviews. anyone?
Ive been looking as well as were only 3 weeks from release. I havent seen anything yet either.
I have also been scanning sites for reviews. I haven't found any yet. But when they are posted, these two David Lynch oriented websites will probably alert us ASAP:
http://davidlynch.topcities.com/ Topcities pulled the website for some reason. It can now be found here: http://www.lynchnet.com/ They have a nice Oscar write up and some pics of Laura and Naomi.
This is my most anticipated release of the year. I will drop a note here if I see any reviews...
Well, here it is April 1st and still no reviews. That seems a little odd, doesn't it? Hopefully I'll receive my copy on Monday.
I hope someone will review it soon. Either edition (Universal or TVA) is fine by me.
I tried to have Universal send me an
early copy for review.
Normally this would be no problem, but
Universal is going under a bit of an overhaul
when it comes to how they are going to distribute
early screener product. This has put them on
backlog as far as getting review copies out.
For that reason, any reviews of this title
will be done through purchased copies.
I will not be reviewing this title for the
forum as I generally only do reviews of screeners
since I have an obligation to the studio to
review those first.
Looking forward to seeing the movie, however.
Tim Lucas of Video Watchdog posted a brief note in the General Discussion forum at www.mhvf.net a couple of days ago about it.
No chapter stops. Cancel your preorders now.
Thanks for the information Ron.
I knew something had to be up at Universal since up until recently one could always count on reviews nice and early.
That said. I'm glad my preordered copy from Amazon has shipped and that TVA will be sending out screeners of the Canadian edition. Hopefully one or both will arrive this week and I can post a review
Once again. Thanks for the information
Ain't no way I'm letting a lack of chapter stops keep me from buying this disc!
Sorry, everybody, I was being sarcastic. I could care less about chapter stops, but their appearance or lack thereof seem to inspire rabid passion in people.
Next time, I'll use sarcasm tags.
I'm more bummed about Universal's SRP of $32.95 for a bare-bones disc. It's the only reason I might not buy it right away - I get the impression that this pricing is a trial balloon, and I don't want that balloon to float.
If I had to, I would pay the full MSRP to obtain the DVD. I bought a multiregion DVD player just to play my Japanese Lost Highway DVD. Lynch is a special case for me (and I know for some of you). If this was any other director, I would not be willing to pay the extra money to obtain a bare bones release. At least with Lynch, we know that he is not a big fan of supplements, so this is likely as good as it's going to get for a while.
Try this if the films last 45 mins appears a bit...difficult-THE MULHOLLAND DRIVE SUPPORT GROUP at iFilm:
I don't care if Lynch likes chapter stops or not- he's not the one buying the damn disc, I am! I want chapter stops!! Part of the reason I buy certain films is for reference. I don't always have time to sit through the whole movie. Sometimes I just want to watch certain parts and hate having to scan through the film to find what I want. I could see it with The Elephant Man- that's more of a traditional narrative- but with his "puzzle box" films like Mulholland Drive or Lost Highway you want to skip around, if nothing else then just to figure it out. Hopefully Universal will defy him for Lost Highway. It's not like he's contributing anything to the video releases anyway so why appease him?
