itís great if you want to see a character study of a man who falls deeper and deeper into conspiratorial thinking, isolating himself from his more level headed family, friends, and colleagues, all in the pursuit of what is ultimately disinformation sprinkled with little bits of facts to keep himself from admitting that he may be wrong.

I still think itís a phenomenal film, though. It holds up being timelessly compelling and rewatchable, but its place in a more modern context is one that I think will continue to get re-contextualized with each passing decade.

The man in question being Oliver Stone himself, of course.

It's a marvelous piece of filmmaking.

Forced Vengeance. Yes!!!

And some cool 70s Bronson movies. I haven't seen Telefon in many years, but it was a fun 70s cold war thriller.

I love Jennifer 8 and have never picked any of the releases up since VHS for some reason so I will get the BD. Never even heard of Funeral Home but it seems interesting so maybe.

Shout! & Kino are really in a battle over Bronson movies and weíre the winners.

Interesting to see FUNERAL HOME getting a full blown special edition, especially for a Canadian film! It's no classic Ė but considering this treatment, maybe it is! Ė and actually kind of slow until the ending. I think it's only been available prior to this in a couple of Mill Creek multipack horror film sets (and some cheapo PD discs). I'm curious to see what supplements they come up with; the director is still around (but seemingly retired), and actress Lesley Donaldson did an interview and really good commentary for Synapse's release of CURTAINS, and an interview for Shout's edition of DEADLY EYES, so I'd imagine she was game for this one as well. Still, at that price . . .

While I want Forced Vengeance, I don't think I want it bad enough to fork over $28 with no special features. I'm going to wait until Shout has some kind of sale. Same with the Bronson movies. That's why I passed on The Evil that Men Do.

Telefon is a title I will pick up when it goes on sale. I will have to read up on Forced Vengeance, but it also sounds like a title worth considering when it goes on sale.

Shout never listed the extras for the Ti Lung / David Chiang Collection. It is shipping now.

Re: The One and Only Shout! Studios (and Scream Factory!) Blu-ray Thread

Thanks for that. Seems like a decent mix of extras on some titles outside of the commentaries. I havenít listened to previous commentaries by either of those guys (though I do have some), so I donít know what Iím in for, although James Mudgeís reviews have always been fairly reliable and well-informed, plus heís been at it for a while. I never liked most of the Celestial trailers, which were newly made to promote their dvd releases 20 years ago, but obviously in some cases the originals are lost to the ages. I do wish this wasnít an exclusive, as it probably wonít last until a sale however many months or years from now, and it probably wouldíve sold well as a wide-release due to a pretty strong mix of films contained within. Guess I gotta keep an eye on that stock counter on the product page.

Probably worth noting Shoutís martial arts sale, in case anyone missed it in the Deals forum.

ALSO worth noting that the Shaw Brothers collections Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are considerably cheaper at Amazon right now, almost half price at $85.99 and $90.99 versus Shoutís sale price of $109 each.

Re: The One and Only Shout! Studios (and Scream Factory!) Blu-ray Thread

Didn’t see this posted above, so Shout must’ve recently slipped STREET GIRLS (1975) into their upcoming releases as a website exclusive (1600 copies). It’s notable as the feature writing debut of Barry Levinson (!), the feature directing debut of Michael Miller (who kinda peaked with either JACKSON COUNTY JAIL or Chuck Norris’s SILENT RAGE, depending on your taste) before a career in tv. Interviewee Katherine Wilson was in a few softcore (possibly hardcore?) films back then, but seems to have parlayed her small role in ANIMAL HOUSE into a documentary called ANIMAL HOUSE OF BLUES that exists in multiple versions.

  • NEW HD Master Presented In 1.85:1 And 1.66:1 Aspect Ratios
  • NEW Audio Commentary With Adult Film Historian Peter Alilunas
  • NEW Interview With Actor/Filmmaker Katherine Wilson
  • Image Gallery
  • Trailer

Of note: SAMURAI RESURRECTION is a remake of 1981ís SAMURAI REINCARNATION, which is in one of Shoutís Sonny Chiba boxes.

For those who like to kick the tires on stuff like this ó especially Takeshi Miike films, which can be hit or miss óbefore springing $30 (!) on a bonus-free Blu-ray, both of these titles can still be found super cheap on used DVDs at Amazon.

Someone at Shout Factory must love Quigley Down Under. I certainly didn't have that movie getting a 4K release on my bingo card.

I love "Over The Edge." That one should have gotten a 4K release over that crappy new Carrie remake.

They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel with a lot of those titles.

Couldnít agree more! I love QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER, but the Blu-ray was enough. And the rest? No one will convince me that K19 and CARRIE 5 (or whatever that one is) have massive fanbases just screaming for 4K editions. Iím the first to admit 4K holds zero interest to me (unless I have no choice in order to get a Blu-ray or 3D disc in the pack), so yes Iím absolutely biased, but releases like these ó which are increasingly common from a lot of boutiques ó keep me convinced that Iím staying on a good path by sticking with Blu (and even DVDs occasionally).

I imagine the pool of available 4K titles they can actually license and acquire a decent transfer is small. The non-horror stuff likely doesn't sell much on 4K.
