I'd like to see those nicks and scratches and everything behind them in the best clarity that I can, thank you very much.
I agree. The HD print of the Grindhouse films that have been airing on the pay tv networks have a nice boost in clarity. Although to be fair the 480p versions don't look too bad themselves.

Agreed. Don't see a need to upgrade my Japanese Box Set.

I don't think we're talking about the same scenes. There was a scene where the girls pick up Zoe Bell at the airport, another extended scene where the girls are picking up Jungle Julia from her apartment.

There was a lot in the script that wasn't in the extended version. I'm not sure if it was even filmed.

Pam and Arlene have a scene together, Pam gets stood up by her date which is why she ends up in the bar etc.

Oh well, I guess we'll have to wait for the "Super-Mega Platinum Edition" due out next year.

Son of a BITCH. First Austin Powers, now these. So, anyone have anything they would love to see on BD? Let me know and I'll run out and get the DVD, so it's guaranteed to be announced within 2 weeks .

How about Pulp Fiction or Boogie Nights? You should get those.

Without spoiling anything, TWBA is essentially the two movies cut together, with one sequence that's black & white in the theatrical version presented in full color. There may be other small changes, but it doesn't sound like there's any major differences other than that.

Nevertheless, for copyright purposes, "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair" is a separate entity than either "Kill Bill, Vol. 1" or "Kill Bill, Vol. 2". That's why Weinstein can own TWBA while Disney owns the other two.
Thanks.

I guess it's a good point that these might be worth having due to the fact that they're both extended, but I can only imagine a later release with the theatrical version will be a multi-disc set that also includes these.

Already have the 2-disc R1 exclusive steelbooks of both of these from Best Buy. I Like the 70's campy "dirty & scratched" look of 'em.....no need for these on Blu-ray.

That 'dirty scratched look' looks even better in HD... I thought the broadcast HD version was a noticeable improvement over the DVDs, so I expect the blu-ray to be just as good.

Weren't we all saying that when the extended got released the first time?

Who's to say that it's going to come out anytime soon. People have been waiting for the Kill Bill super edition for how long?

I know the difference between the two is that at least one version of Grindhouse has already been released I'm still not holding my breath.

Are these still coming out? Amazon no longer has them available for pre-order, no listing at DD either.

Just an FYI, Starz has been running the Theatrical Cut of Grindhouse... With trailers and intermission ads.

Last Thurs. it was on the HD station. I think the next time it's on is 11/15... Just saying.

The title of this thread is misleading. Grindhouse is not being released.

"Grindhouse Presents" is on the cover of both films. The title of the thread says Planet Terror and Death Proof BLU-RAYS are coming out on 12/16.

That is confusing?
