Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Donnie Darko looks like a solid release. My copy from Target should be here tomorrow.

Yeah, I should get Wednesday from Amazon. I'm not sure I ever saw the DC. Think I only saw once or twice but loved it. Too bad new docu doesn't have the cast. Why could Jake or anyone else talk now about it? It didn't do well, but nothing to be ashamed about as it's cult status is cemented...

Just got Brain Damage. Never saw even though I think I had it on DVD. Extras sound real good...

I just got my copy over the weekend but haven't watched it yet. In the Documentary did they say that any of the stars were ashamed of it?

If they couldn't get any of the (now) bigger stars to appear, it could have been scheduling issues or a host many other things.

Oh, no, I haven't seen it. I doubt they are, just doesn't seem a valid reason for any of them talking about it. With a release like this seems like they could go to wherever they are...

I'm not sure what a valid reason would be for you then. I'm literally just guessing. As I mentioned, there could be a host of reasons why the rest of the cast weren't included (outside Duval) in the Documentary. Hell, you could ask the question you put forth about every Special Edition of a DVD or Blu-Ray that has ever been released, that is missing Cast Members either on Audio Commentary or a Retrospective.

Jake isn't shy about the importance of the film to his career. He was interviewed by a radio station and said:

"It’s one of the proudest moments of my career."

“It’s a movie that exists right where I love to be. Anyone who wants to know what’s going on in my mind, go see that movie.”

The book is also in the House Two Story US release.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

There was a seller on Amazon UK this morning who was selling the House box set for $25 bucks shipped to the States. I managed to snag one up before they sold out.

UPDATE: lol, nevermind. Just got a cancellation notice. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

So this House Collection... what is the cheapest option for the full UK set? Amazon UK looks like it is about $43 shipped to the US. Or is this completely wiped out?

Says it ships in 1-3 weeks, but folks seem to be treating it lie it's completely sold out?

Is it a limited edition? I haven't seen a definitive answer.

I should have picked it up, but I'm wary od picking up foreign releases because of stuff like PAL and 50/60. I'm not sure what my player andtv can handle.

Also prevents me from buying the European blu-ray release of Caprica.

Yeah, it's not sold out at Amazon, it's just currently on back order. Bluray.com has it listed as region free, so you should be good.

I ordered it and a Amazon UK representative assured me it would be in stock within the 1-3 week timeframe. It's sold out on Arrow's website but Amazon might have enough clout to squeeze more sets out of Arrow. I dont have my hopes up but I'll take the chance anyway.

Product Description

HERBERT WEST HAS A GOOD HEAD ON HIS SHOULDERS… AND ANOTHER ONE ON HIS DESK. One of the most wildly popular horror movies of all-time, Stuart Gordon’s enduring splatter-comedy classic Re-Animator returns to Blu-ray in a stunning restoration packed with special features! When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories – specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It’s not long before Dean finds himself under West’s influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control… Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale ‘Herbert West – Reanimator’ and featuring a standout performance from Jeffrey Combs as the deliciously deranged West, Re-Animator remains the ground-zero of ’80s splatter mayhem and one of the genre’s finest hours.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Can someone explains to me if there's a difference between the previous version of Battles Without Honor and Humanity set with the new set above?

The Re-Animator set looks great. I have the Second Sight Steelbook release so I don't see me rebuying it but damn it looks pretty.

Glad we're getting a PSYCHO II release by Arrow. It will certainly best the Scream Factory release by miles. That release had terrible compression artifacts throughout, and was a very bad encode...

These are different films that came after the first series. This is the NEW Battles.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I see that Arrow is releasing Pulse. Everyone seems to rave about this film, saying that it's super-scary.

I've watched it three times now, trying to see what everyone else sees in it, but I find it neither scary nor even remotely interesting. And I've really tried to find something good about it, but I can't.

If anyone's a fan of the film, would you please try to explain to me what makes it so good? I'm at a total loss on this one.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

That's an awful lot of effort to put into something just because of how other people feel about it. Might be better to just to find negative reviews that support your position instead of revisiting it over and over like that.

That's a good point, Brian, but when the reviews are so overwhelmingly positive, it makes me think that I'm just not seeing what everyone else is seeing...and that irks me. I guess that I'll just have to chalk this one up to personal preferences. Thanks for the thought, though.

Sorry to have hijacked the thread momentarily--carry on.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Just watched Cemetery Without Crosses. It was a blind buy for me---awesome looking picture, and fantastic movie. Definitely in my top ten of Spaghetti Westerns (or Baguette Westerns, as the case may be, with the French cast and director.)
