The extended cut Twilight Time Major Dundee was NOT an inferior release. It eliminated a shitty score (unless you're a Mitch Miller fan) that even Sam Peckinpah hated. That you prefer the Amfitheatrof score is perfectly fine. TT opted to go with a superior underscore. Personally I'd love to see the "score by Tower records" that Kubrick laid on 2001 A Space Odyssey eliminated and replaced by Alex North's original score which Kubrick dumped but hey ..... that's just me.
I actually enjoy the Mitch Miller score. To each his own.

The Film Noir sounds intriguing and I have a couple of those movies on DVD. I will like last time wait for reviews. Who would have thought The Garment Jungle would make it on Blu-ray :)
I have that DVD !
I still feel like some of these titles will be get US releases. And I have been checking reviews and so far Im glad I passed on I Married a monster from Outer Space and Sorry Wrong Number
I preordered "Essential Film Noir: Volume 1" from DD. I'm not getting any younger waiting on these titles to come to Blu-ray. I would like to finally watch "Alias Nick Beal" before I leave this earth. :D Plus, they have audio commentaries by the Film Noir Foundation guys Eddie Muller and Alan B. Rode. Both give very entertaining and informative commentaries.:thumbsup:

With the DeepDiscount sale i did order The Day of the Locust & The Winslow Boy for a total of $58.
I preordered Day of the Locust (a favorite film -- and book) from DD as well using one of the recent 15% coupons (my total is $29.70 shipped to NY). This will be my first Imprint title. I hope DD's listing of this as Region 0 is correct, since I'm not yet region-free-capable. I suppose I can return it or sell it if not -- or maybe it will inspire me to invest in going region-free.

My Blu-rays of War of the Worlds and Waterloo were region free so my guess is that the upcoming releases will be the same. DeepDiscount did cancel my order of Waterloo before it came out so i had to order it on another site. Have my all region player for about 9 years and bought over 40 titles not available in the US.

I just received Imprint's "A Place in the Sun" from DD using one of those 15% coupons and it is Region free.

I have all of the Wave #1 (May) and Wave #2 (August) titles. Every single one of them is Region Free. Since with Wave #3 they will be dealing with some new studios -- Universal, Sony, and (in Wave #4) MGM -- it's possible that some upcoming titles will not be Region Free, but I suspect not.

Any chance more copies of waterloo will be available? If not, is the european edition substantially different in terms of picture?

Looks like it's sold out but you can buy it on Ebay and other sites. Was surprised how quickly it was sold out and none of the websites i know even reviewed it. I have it and looks very nice and i thought i read somewhere that it is the same transfer as the Koch Media German release and you can buy that on Amazon UK.

I'm trying to find where this was announced publicly, but one of the Aussies on bluray.com has reported that all the Wave 1 itmes will be
re-released on Feb 17 as Standard Editions. I can't find anything on VV Social Media or the VV/Imprint Website, but this information has proven pretty reliable in the past

I have both, and the transfers look the same to me. The Imprint version has a nice feature in which Sheldon Hall supplies a lot of information about the making of the film.

. Great news. Waterloo is an important title for me but I was hesitating on the $30+ price

Just received the shipping notice from DeepDiscount on The Day of the Locust & The Winslow Boy so it should be interesting on how they compare to my dvd's.

Got my notification of "Major Dundee" being shipped. Looking forward to seeing a good Blu-Ray version of this!
