Clarence and Alabama (True Romance) May 26th

in the announcements thread but worth its own discussion/thread

Wow one of the best movies of the 90s and one of the worst.

Definitely in for True Romance. Glad to see the extras ported over.

True Romance is a pre-order for me. That and Falling Down on the same day is fucking great news.

I'm surprised Warner didn't give these a digibook release, especially for a movie like True Romance.

Thumbs down on the True Romance cover. The 2 Disc dvd cover was perfect.

Yes, like someone above mentioned, True Romance 2-Disc Art > Snapper art.

I love TR!

Every cast member is perfect....great small parts for Gandolfini, Brad Pitt, Chris Penn, Dennis Hopper, and of couse Walken and Oldman steal the show.

I agree that the two disc cover art for True Romance would be better fitted for this release than the cover art found on the old snapper release.

Sounds like the video transfer leaves a lot to be desired (and omits 2 extras from the SE).

DVD Beaver has some screencaps: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdcom...rueromance.htm

It looks like it has some DNR, but thankfully no edge enhancement that I can see. It's not too bad. I don't think I'd pass on it.

I'll just stick with my 2-disk True Romance DVD for now. I've got plenty others I'd rather upgrade first.

I think it looks like a pretty significant leap from the DVD. We'll see.

Re: Clarence and Alabama (True Romance) May 26th

wow, i've never used a review ever to BUY or NOT BUY a disc.

and i can see why.

not sure what players and TV's they're using, but how could they be more WRONG.

Watched it the other night, with some non-BLU people, and they and I were blown away

the film looks Amazing

glad i'll stick to not reading reviews.
