I'd never heard of either of them before. I took at peek at their trailers on YouTube, and it looks like the poster art being used for the Blu-ray covers probably cost more to make than either movie actually did.

No doubt! I grabbed both of those on DVD back when VCI had them super-cheap in one of their sales, and I still spent too much.

This post is from August, but KL picked up the 1st 2 American Ninja movies. Olive Films previously had the rights.



They said in their post that sales of these two will help decide if they pick up 3 and 4. They won't pick up 5 because WB has the rights and KL doesn't do business with them.

Icons of cool John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Broken Arrow) and Nicolas Cage (The Rock, Con Air) let the bullets fly in this mind-blowing, face-swapping action epic. FBI agent Sean Archer (Travolta) knows how to stop elusive terrorist Castor Troy (Cage). He’ll become him. Archer undergoes a futuristic surgery and has Troy’s face mapped onto his, then infiltrates the terrorist’s world to discover his deadly secrets. But as much as Archer looks and acts like Troy, he doesn’t really know him. He never figures Troy will retaliate and force doctors to transform him into Archer. Now the agent faces a shattering nightmare: his archrival is living with his family. The Travolta/Cage star-power comes on strong and so does the excitement in this roaring thrill machine of a movie from master action director John Woo (The Killer, Hard Target). So buckle up. It’s going to be a furious fight.

Nice. Basically new transfer and new commentary from Leeder and Venema. The rest is legacy extras. That's cool with me. One of Woo's best American movies.

Has to be a PQ upgrade, the Blu-rays were lacking in quality.

I agree Face/off is one of Woo’s best Hollywood movies. I loved it back in the day but I’m not sure how well it holds up now. I really wish we could get a decent release of The Killer and Hard Boiled someday.

New 4K of Kindergarten Cop with 2 new commentaries




This was on Netflix recently and I re-watched it and it's still charming for being 30+ years old.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber Blu-ray Thread

Noticed a new 'Kino Cult' title coming up that I don't think was mentioned in this thread, #4 in the series and out Dec. 19: Jess Franco's SINNER: THE SECRET DIARY OF A NYMPHOMANIAC (1973)
https://kinolorber.com/product/sinne...a-nymphomaniac

A Film by legendary cult director Jesús “Jess” Franco (The Diabolical Dr. Z, The Blood of Fu Manchu, Venus in Furs, Count Dracula, Lorna… the Exorcist). Made at the height of Franco’s creative prowess, Sinner: The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac is a grindhouse Citizen Kane: a moody tale of one woman’s sexual evolution and shocking demise, told through the eyes of those who knew her. When Linda (Montserrat Prous) dies in the arms of her lover (Manuel Pereiro), the man’s wife (Jacqueline Laurent) investigates the dead woman’s past, to try and clear her husband’s name. As it weaves together the tangled threads of Linda’s tragic life, Sinner leads the viewer into a voyeuristic labyrinth of seedy discotheques, sultry jazz clubs, and delicious ’70s sex pads, backed with an acid rock soundtrack and oversaturated visuals that bring the film to the edge of psychedelia. Within its depths, Sinner reveals unexpected layers of narrative and emotional complexity, demonstrating why Franco remains one of the most under-appreciated filmmakers of European cinema.​​​​​

Product Extras
  • NEW Audio Commentary by Novelist and Critic Tim Lucas
  • Interview with Actress Jacqueline Laurent
  • Interview with Actress Anne Libert
  • Interview with Editor Gérard Kikoïne
  • Includes Both English and French Audio Tracks
  • Optional English Subtitles

Ugh. I literally just bought the Olive disc because it was going out of print.

It was widely speculated/presumed Kino would pick up some of the Olive titles.
