Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Looking forward to DUCKLING and THE SLAYER, but the Sept. lineup doesn't do anything for me at all.

Glad we're finally getting a definitive version of DUCKING, which will hopefully put the German BD to shame. There was some discussion of an improperly-spliced negative resulting in a botched transfer of that title, and the German BD was a questionable encode as well...

It's from a new 4k restoration.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I also posted this in the Amazon Blu-ray deals thread and thought some here might be interested also. My apologies if this is not welcome here.

Here's a deal for lovers of Polish Arthouse (or someone who wants to try some out for cheap)!

Amazon UK has the Arrow Academy Blu-ray of Ashes and Diamonds for 1.71 GBP at this time. DVDCOMPARE shows this as being Region Free. I decided to order it blind because of the cheap price, after shipping to Missouri it came out to $6.06 USD. Amazon says it'll ship in 1 to 4 weeks. I'm guessing this price is a mistake, so you may want to jump on it if you're keen for the deal.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

It came out a couple of months ago but Django, Prepare a Coffin looks and sounds very nice. If you haven't caught this spaghetti western, it's a worthy installment in the endless line-up of Django-related movies from the 1960s and 1970s.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

This shall be mine.

August 8, 2017

Seijun Suzuki's The Taisho Trilogy (Zigeunerweisen, Kagero-za and Yumeji) (6-Disc Limtied Edition) [Blu-ray + DVD]



Format: Blu-ray + DVD
Directed by: Seijun Suzuki

Synopsis:

HAUNTING, HYPNOTIC, FLAMBOYANT, EROTIC, BIZARRE… SUZUKI!

After over a decade in the wilderness following his firing from Nikkatsu for Branded to Kill (1967), maverick director Seijun Suzuki returned with a vengeance with his critically-praised tryptic of cryptic supernatural dramas set during the liberal enlightenment of Japan’s Taisho Era (1912-26).

In the multiple Japanese Academy Award-winning Zigeunerweisen (1980), two intellectuals and former colleagues from military academy involve their wives in a series of dangerous sexual games. In Kageroza (1981), a playwright is drawn like a moth to a flame to a mysterious beauty who might be a ghost, while Yumeji (1991) imagines the real-life painter-poet Takehisa Yumeji’s encounter with a beautiful widow with a dark past.

Presented together on Blu-ray for the first time outside of Japan, the films in the Taisho Trilogy are considered Suzuki’s masterpieces in his homeland. Presenting a dramatic turn from more his familiar tales of cops, gangsters and unruly youth, these surrealistic psychological puzzles drip with a lush exoticism, distinctively capturing the pandemonium of a bygone age of decadence and excess, when Western ideas, fashions, technologies and art fused into everyday aspect of Japanese life.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS

• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
• Original stereo audio (uncompressed on the Blu-ray)
• Optional English subtitles
• New introductions to each film by critic Tony Rayns
• Making-of featurette
• Vintage interview with Seijun Suzuki
• More to be announced…

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Booklet featuring writing on the films by critic Jasper Sharp and more.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Arrow's site is having problems and they said they were going to put it back up. Zavvi also has it up.

Zavvi also has the SteelBook available, though for some reason it's not findable on the site just by searching for it unless you have the direct link (which was emailed out in a newsletter today).

Noticed Amazon has a release date as Aug 8 for the Re Animator set. Hopefully if indeed its a limited release, those that ordered it first get it first

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I believe Arrow Video utilized an older transfer from MGM for Stormy Monday. The video quality is passable but underwhelming, below their usual standards. It was interesting to hear that Melanie Griffith rejected Tim Roth for Sean Bean in the role of her lover.

The transfer is not from MGM but an independent licensor I believe. And yes it's from 2010 according to the liner notes.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I went ahead and ordered the UK Arrow version of Ronin -- the same special features are included on that one -- but the UK version is cheaper by about 4$. I paid about $20 for the Uk version shipped and the U.S. version is about $24 shipped, with tax.

I had also ordered the Curzon special edition of The Handmaiden and that should be here in a couple of days. It had shipped out last week. I reckon folks get on that one, because I would not be surprised it goes out of print like Thirst did a few years ago. The Curzon edition also included Chan Work Park's extended cut of the film.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Arrow's Ronin looks a lot better than the MGM disc.

Awesome, I'm glad they got it right. Kind of weird about the audio though and those garbled parts.

Glad I held off because those audio issues are deal breaker for me. If they are correctable, maybe there will be a replacement program.

Wish the Fry's here wasn't so far away. Better than the price I paid at Amazon.
