Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber and Olive Films Blu-Ray Thread

Olive Films just announced a bunch of releases for March

Quote:
Independent U.S. distributors Olive Films will add ten new titles to their Blu-ray catalog this March. Amongst them are Don Hulette's Breaker! Breaker!, John Dahl's Kll Me Again, David Gordon Green's Undertow, and Harold Becker's The Boost.

Breaker! Breaker!

Chuck Norris does double-duty as both star and fight choreographer in the action-packed Breaker! Breaker!

Breaker! Breaker! features Chuck Norris (Firewalker) at his butt-kicking best as a trucker on a mission to locate his kidnapped brother. J.D. Dawes (Norris) finds himself run afoul of the corrupt and unscrupulous Judge Joshua Trimmings (George Murdock, The Mack) and his henchmen, when he ventures into a small desert town in search of his missing brother. Judge Trimmings doesn't much like truckers ...and Dawes doesn't much like anyone who messes with his family – it' s a combustible combination in the high-octane action drama Breaker! Breaker!, directed by Don Hulette (A Great Ride), written by Terry Chambers (13 Nuns) and co-starring Jack Nance (Eraserhead), Michael Augenstein (Macbeth), Don Gentry (Born Again) and Terry O' Connor.

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Bandits

Barry Levinson (Rain Man) mines cinematic gold in Bandits, starring Cate Blanchett, Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton. Conjuring up memories of another silver screen trio – Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy and Myrna LoyinTest Pilot– Willis (The Sixth Sense) and Thornton (Sling Blade) star as Joe and Terry, escaped convicts on the lam planning to rob a few banks to fund a new life just south of the border. Blanchett (Carol) stars as Kate Wheeler, a woman also on the run – from an unhappy marriage. Fate intervenes when Kate runs into Terry (quite literally) with her car. She soon finds herself joining the boys on their cross-country trek in this comic caper co-starring January Jones (TV' s Mad Men) and William Converse-Roberts (Kiss the Girls).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Kill Me Again

Kill Me Again would be one of three on-screen appearances by Val Kilmer and Joanne Whalley (then Mrs. Val Kilmer) which includes the Ron Howard directed and George Lucas produced fantasy film Willow and Francis Ford Coppola's horror film Twixt.

Jack Andrews (Val Kilmer, Heat), a down on his luck private investigator is looking to score some cash in order to pay off his debt to a local loan shark. Fay Forrester (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer, Willow) – in femme fatale mode – is looking to disappear, having just made off with a suitcase full of money stolen from her psychotic boyfriend Vince (Michael Madsen, Kill Bill) following a robbery gone wrong. Fate will bring Jack and Fay together. And fate may tear them apart in the modern day noir Kill Me Again, directed by John Dahl (The Last Seduction, Red Rock West) from a screenplay by Dahl and David W.Warfield. Kill Me Again features supporting performances by Jon Gries (Taken), Bibi Besch (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) and Nick Dimitri (The Fugitive).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

The Trip

The Trip features a cast and crew of Academy Award winners and nominees including screenwriter Jack Nicholson (Best Actor winner for As Good AsIt Gets and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest); Peter Fonda (Best Actor nominee, Ulee's Gold; Best Screenplay, Easy Rider–a nomination shared with The Tripco-star Dennis Hopper); Bruce Dern (Best Actor nominee, Nebraska) and Dennis Hopper (Best Supporting Actor nominee, Hoosiers).

With The Trip, Roger Corman delves deep inside the mind of the artist. TV commercial director Paul Groves (Peter Fonda, The Wild Angels), with both his personal and professional life in crisis due to a crumbling marriage and stagnating career, begins to experiment with LSD to free himself artistically. Paul' s trip provides the viewer with psychedelic and hallucinatory moments worthy of Fellini, as an onslaught of strange, beautiful and terrifying images flood Paul' s subconscious and leads to a revelatory denouement. Featured in The Trip are Bruce Dern (co-star of the Corman directed The Wild Angels) as John, the self-proclaimed LSD guru who sends Paul on his trip; Susan Strasberg (Psych-Out) as Paul' s estranged wife; and Dennis Hopper (Chattahoochee) as a drug-culture every man. The Trip, written for the screen by Jack Nicholson (Psych-Out, Ironweed) would beoneof several collaborations with mentor Roger Corman including The LittleShop of Horrors, The Raven and The Terror.

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Undertow

With the drama thriller Undertow, director David Gordon Green proves once again his ability to navigate any genre (the romantic All the Real Girls, the dramatic George Washington, and the comedic Pineapple Express) with ease.

Following the death of his wife, John Munn (Dermot Mulroney, My Best Friend's Wedding) moves to Georgia with his two sons Chris (Jamie Bell, Billy Elliot) and Tim (Devon Alan, Simon Birch) in hopes of making a new start for his family. Once there, rebellious Chris finds a kindred spirit in his Uncle Deel (Josh Lucas, American Psycho), who recently left prison and still holds a grudge against his brother for marrying the woman he loved. Resentments soon boil over with tragic consequences sending Uncle Deel in hot pursuit of his fleeing nephews in the dramatic thriller Undertow. Undertow, directed by David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls) from a screenplay by Joe Conway and Green, based on a story by Lingard Jervey, co-stars Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Robert Longstreet (Pineapple Express) and Terry Loughlin (October Sky).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Clean Slate

The multi-faceted Dana Carvey stars as an amnesic detective alongside Academy Award nominee James Earl Jones (Best Actor,The Great White Hope) in the comedy with thrills, Clean Slate.

Clean Slate stars Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey as Maurice Pogue, a private detective recovering from amnesia. Pogue suffers a head injury that affects his short-term memory (which disappears every time he falls asleep), an affliction that will jeopardize his professional life as well as a major case against mobster Cornell (Michael Gambon, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban),in which he' s a witness. Add to the mix a murder plot, double-crosses and a possible femme fatale (Valeria Golino, Rain Man) and you have the ingredients for a first-rate comic thriller. Clean Slate, directed by Mick Jackson (L.A. Story) from a screenplay by Robert King, features supporting performances by James Earl Jones (Star Wars), Kevin Pollak (L.A.Story), Michael Murphy (Phase IV), Jayne Brook (Kindergarten Cop) and Olivia d'Abo (Wayne's World 2).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Jinxed

Jinxed stars two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Actress, Bette Midler (The Rose, For The Boys) and Academy Award nominee for Best Supporting Actor, Rip Torn (Cross Creek).

High-rolling gambler Harold Benson (Rip Torn, Men in Black) is on a winning streak thanks to"jinxed" blackjack dealer Willie Brodax (Ken Wahl, The Wanderers) – Harold just can' t loose when he' s playing at Willie' s table. The only way for Willie to break his streak of bad luck, as suggested by casino manager Milt (Val Avery, Black Caesar), is to take something prized from Harold. Enter Harold' s mistress, lounge singer Bonita Friml (Bette Midler, The Rose), a prize in the eyes of Willie, in the romantic comedy Jinxed. Jinxed is directed by Don Siegel (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dirty Harry) from a screenplay by Frank D. Gilroy and David Newman based on a story by Gilroy.

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

The Boost

The Boost features a riveting lead performance by Academy Award nominee James Woods (Best Actor, Salvador).

James Woods (Best Seller) and Sean Young (Fatal Instinct) star in the dramatic cautionary tale The Boost. Living the high life – figuratively and literally –married couple Lenny and Linda Brown (Woods and Young) will see their fast lane L.A. lifestyle come crashing down around them when the real estate market takes a sudden downturn. Unemployed and in debt, Lenny and Linda' s hedonistic lifestyle and casual drug use soon spiral out of control as they careen toward an abyss. The Boost, wrote film critic Roger Ebert, is"one of the most convincing and horrifying portraits of drug addiction I've ever seen."The Boost, directed by Harold Becker (The Onion Field) from a screenplay by Darryl Ponicsan (based on the Benjamin Stein book Ludes: A Ballad of the Drug and the Dream), features supporting performances by Steven Hill (TV' s Law & Order), John Kapelos (The Breakfast Club), Amanda Blake (TV's Gunsmoke) and Grace Zabriskie (TV' s Twin Peaks).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

Making the Grade

From high school rebel in The Breakfast Club to prep school impersonator, Judd Nelson's (Blue City) irreverent brand of humor is prominently on display in Making The Grade. Rich, preppy Palmer Woodrow (Dana Olsen, The 'Burbs) would much rather be skiing in Europe than attending Hoover Academy prep school, which provides Palmer with his last shot at graduating. As it turns out Palmer is more motivated than anyone imagines.Enter Eddie Keaton (Nelson), a low-rent con artist in need of cash and on the run from a loan shark (Andrew Dice Clay, Blue Jasmine). With $10,000 and a Porsche courtesy of Palmer, Eddie assumes his identity. Hoover Academy will never be the same. Making The Grade, directed by Dorian Walker (Teen Witch) from a screenplay by Gene Quintano based on a story by Quintano and Charles Gale, co-stars Jonna Lee (Chained Heat), Gordon Jump (House Calls) and Ronald Lacey (Raiders of the Lost Ark).

STREET DATE: MARCH 22.

My Summer Story

Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen (Best Supporting Actress, Melvin and Howard) takes on the role of Mrs. Parker in My Summer Story, the sequel to the perennial family favorite A Christmas Story.

The Parker family celebrates a warmer–but no less festive – season in My Summer Story, a sequel to A Christmas Story starring Mary Steenburgen (Melvin and Howard), Charles Grodin and Kieran Culkin. The laughs are hardier and the adventures more adventurous as Ralphie Parker (Kieran Culkin, Father of the Bride) goes in search of the perfect spinning top in order to beat his arch rival and school bully Lug Ditka (Whit Hertford, Jurassic Park), while Mrs. Parker (Steenburgen) and Mr. Parker (Grodin) cope with the boisterous neighbors, among other summer pursuits. Bob Clark (A Christmas Story) directs My Summer Story from a screenplay by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Clark based on the novel by Shepherd.

Not crazy about the artwork for Breaker, Breaker.




It's actually my least favorite Chuck Norris movie.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber and Olive Films Blu-Ray Thread

I truly starting to dislike Olive films, and almost wish they just go out of business. Every time they have a release. I cringe seeing the titles as I know it will just be one more classic film, that i can't get due to no subtitles.

In this case, Making The Grade and The Boost. There's been over a dozen films I had to shy away from. And when they release an obscure film, it's just almost definite, that no other company will ever release them. So, we are stuck with the dvds forever it seems.

Seriously, start adding subtitles Olive. Is it really that cost inefficient? Because you are releaseing so many all time 80's classics.

Kill Me Again starring Mr. & Mrs. Kilmer is a pretty good noir.

If you are that serious about subtitles, what some have done is buy the Blu-ray and rip it, then muxing it with the subtitle track from DVD or whatever other source. Not a perfect solution but it does work for some discs.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber and Olive Films Blu-Ray Thread

I saw those cartoon pre-orders go up and wondered if time has been kind to them. I haven't seen them in decades and wonder if they still hold any entertainment for an adult.

I wrestled with that myself actually. Certain Hanna-Barbara cartoons have that problem, they aren't really that funny as much as they used to be. Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, classic characters for sure, but the cartoons didn't hold the charm I wanted them too.

However, I watched some Ant & the Aardvark as well as Inspector cartoons probably about 2-3 years ago...somewhere, either on dvd or some channel and I laughed my ass off. Especially Ant & the Aardvark, and maybe since I'm older and appreciate really good voice acting when I hear it, but man is John Byner talented. When I was a kid, just thought it was Jackie Mason and then somebody doing a real good Dean Martin impression. Come to find out once in my late teen years that it was one guy doing the whole bloody thing. Floored. (was actually one of the catalysts for me to really get interested in voice acting....wish I could have done something with it)

And the Inspector, I'm a sucker for the Inspector Clouseau character from the old Pink Panther movies and found this to be so faithful. Pat Harrington Jr did a wonderful job voicing the two main characters. So it stuck with me...and when everybody was watching Looney Tunes, I was watching these and Droopy cartoons for the most part.

I would say spring for one of the sets...whichever you feel more comfortable with. I don't think you would be disappointed. My only concern currently is whether or not we will get subtitles. Most of the time, my son is sitting on my lap with me and he's in the babbling stage so I get a lot more mileage out of a disc with subs than without. Just saying

Pretty sure they were intended for adults. All were released theatrically to proceed a United Artist feature.

Olive Films is releasing all 4 American Ninja movies on BD.

And of course the folks who bought the UK SE box set got screwed. Looks like there are new extras on all 4 movies. The U.K. Set only has the 80 minute documentary and 2 commentaries. This one has documentaries on all 4 movies, 2 commentaries and other extras. The link has the details.

Although buying all 4 of these via Olive is much more expensive.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber and Olive Films Blu-Ray Thread

Very rare Charles Bronson movie coming to BD on 9/27/16 from Kino Lorber



Quote:
Newly Restored in HD! The stakes of the game are high, the rules hard, and each man and woman must play to win! Out of the sun-bleached woodwork, the players emerge. Cliff Hoyt (Charles Bronson, The White Buffalo), the ex-patriot American trying to forget. Gunther Beckdorff (Jason Robards, The Day After), the ex-Nazi seeking oblivion. And Marie Claire Allesandri (Dominique Sanda, The Conformist), the beautiful French woman in search of her missing lover. Against an explosive background, heightened by all the hopes, fears, greed and confusion of the post-war years, the three are thrown into an unforgettable tale of romance, adventure and intrigue. Wonderfully Directed by the great J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone, Cape Fear) and featuring a stellar cast that includes Fernando Rey (The French Connection I & II), Simon MacCorkindale (Death on the Nile), Camilla Sparv (Downhill Racer), Gilbert Roland (Barbarosa), Clifton James (Juggernaut), James Booth (Avenging Force), Martin LaSalle (Pickpocket) and Aldo Sambrell (Navajo Joe).

Bonus Features: The Making of Cabo Blanco | Audio Commentary by Paul Talbot, the author of BRONSON'S LOOSE and BRONSON'S LOOSE AGAIN | Interview with Producer Lance Hool | Trailers

Darn- my VHS tape is now worthless! Hopefully they'll put out more missing Fox titles.

Wow, Scavenger Hunt. That brings back some memories!

My mom went to high school with Michael Schultz. I love a lot of his 70's films.

Olive Films is releasing all 4 American Ninja movies on BD.

And of course the folks who bought the UK SE box set got screwed. Looks like there are new extras on all 4 movies. The U.K. Set only has the 80 minute documentary and 2 commentaries. This one has documentaries on all 4 movies, 2 commentaries and other extras. The link has the details.

Although buying all 4 of these via Olive is much more expensive.
If anyone is looking to sell the UK set that plays in the US player to recoup some funds for the Olive titles, please shoot me a message.

Hmm, all of a sudden I'm seeing multiple copies of The Quiet Man at the used stores and now this is released; somebody must have had an inside source.
