Not Cannon, but still a classic Norris 80's action movie.


Coming June 16th



From Olive Films:

Coming March 31st





http://www.amazon.com/Firewalker-Blu...rds=firewalker

Coming April 21st



Lots of really cool releases coming out. Kino Lorber is releasing a lot of good old Cannon releases.

Now I just need a newly remastered 16X9 version of Invasion USA and Platoon Leader.

I am puzzled why Olive got the rights to Allan Quartermain and the Lost City of Gold, but not King Solomons Mines, which was the 1st movie.

Schwing! They'll unfortunately be barebones if Olive is releasing them.

I'll definitely pick up Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja and the Norris movies.

I barely recall watching River of Death on VHS back in the early 90's. I don't recall if it was a good or bad Cannon film.

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

My only concern is paying the going rate for these (even the average going sale rate, which isn't particularly cheap), only to have them get re-packaged into budget-minded double-features, triple-features and four-packs down the road. Mind you, that would be better if the rights to these former MGM Home Video releases weren't arbitrarily scattered to Olive, Kino and Shout, but still each company (especially the first two) will have ample opportunity down the road to combine these into interesting "collections", much like MGM/Fox did with its various Chuck Norris Blu-ray combos (Total Attack Pack, 3 Chuck Norris Favorites, Missing In Action 1 and 2) and the Charles Bronson Triple Threat Collection (Death Wish 2-4), all of which routinely go on sale for less than the price of one Kino/Olive/Shout title. Being barebones (except trailers) probably accounts for that, I'm sure.

On a related note, I'm surprised one of these companies hasn't snapped up the rights to Mark Hartley's endlessly entertaining (and often downright hilarious) Cannon doc ELECTRIC BOOGALOO. It's an ideal companion piece to pretty much all of the film's in the OP's post, as they're all given face time in it. It's absolutely packed with great anecdotes that only make the films more endearing.

Hero and the Terror is one of Chuck's best (and most underrated) movies - I'll probably get that one when it dips under $10. Firewalker is just good, silly fun - although they forgot the other 't" on the end of Gossett.

It's much tougher economically for a small distributor licensing content from a studio to package like-minded releases together on Blu-ray in cheaper form. It is rarely done except for a place like Mill Creek that has blanket licenses to an entire catalog. I don't think you have to worry about it happening in this case with these BDs.

Agreed, I like them both. I will probably pick up several of these BDs if they hit my price point.

I still think it's just a matter of time, but I guess we'll see. Even factoring in the long tail of Amazon and other online retailers maintaining availability longer than ever, sales inevitably decline, and reducing prices or combining discs into new sets simply gives new life to old stock and potentially puts it in more hands at lower price points. In the long term, for companies like Kino and Olive (as opposed to Twilight Time with their limited pressings and Shout with their more elaborate supplements), that'll probably trump any economic hardships they may have faced in the early running.

In fact, Kino has already had one "set" on the market for a while now:
http://www.kinolorber.com/video.php?product_id=2569

I realize that's just a bunch of individual releases bundled together "as is", but it suggests to me that Kino, at least, is not above finding creative ways of combining existing product to potentially boost sales or save buyers a few bucks, and with so many great Cannon pictures coming in the months ahead, I have few doubts that we'll see something similar to this down the road. Obviously, my personal preference would be a "Michael Dudikoff Action Pack" or a "Killer Ninja Triple Feature" or what have you, with the existing discs in a single case with some fun new sleeve art, although obviously I wouldn't expect the kinds of bargain bin pricing we see when the big studios (or the mass-marketer type companies like Mill Creek) bundle old catalog titles together.

Regardless this is all a LONG way off, but I'm fairly confident it'll happen, and I know the temptation to double dip will personally be hard to resist. In the meantime, I just finished revisiting THE GREAT RAIN ROBBERY, JUGGERNAUT, AVALANCHE, METEOR, and AVENGING FORCE (with commentary!) thanks to Kino's lovely new Blu editions which, like so many others they've released so far, I leapt at when the price dropped a measly two bucks! And I've got about nine more in the stacks here. Trust me, as much as I suspect combo packs will appear some day, I can't close my wallet long enough to wait for them!

Loved that documentary! I know Magnolia released Not Quite Hollywood and Dark Sky Films released Machete Maidens.

I got lucky recently and picked up the German BDs of Enter The Ninja & Revenge of the Ninja off of Ebay for around $25.XX (shipped). I do like all of this Cannon Films love coming from Kino Lorber, Olive Films and Shout/Scream Factory though.

Hopefully someone releases Invasion U.S.A.!

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

Wish they'd do a 3D Blu-Ray of Treasure of the Four Crowns- I still have the original glasses from that which advertise Lou Ferrigno's Hercules on the inside (which wasn't in 3D.)

Looking forward to the Breakin' double feature; almost forgot about Rappin'- remember hearing a review of that on the radio when it came out where they were trying to be ironically clever and made the whole review rhyme, ending with "But Rappin' was crap, would I lie to you?"

I will probably get that Breakin' double despite the movies being not that great. I really want Beat Street.

Coming Soon! On Blu-ray and DVD!

DELTA FORCE 2 (1990) Starring Chuck Norris, Billy Drago, John P. Ryan, Richard Jaeckel and Mark Margolis - Directed by Aaron Norris.


Just announced this past week on Kino Lorber's Facebook page.


Someone asked about Missing in Action III and someone from Kino said that another company has the rights. My guess it's Olive films.

By the way, did anyone pick up Hero and the Terror and An Eye for an Eye yet?

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

Picked up An Eye for an Eye and Hero and the Terror during this Amazon Kino Lorber sale.

Started watching Hero and the Terror last night. I haven't seen it since the early MGM DVD and honestly it looks quite good for a movie that's almost 30 years old. Hard to believe that Norris was in his late 40's in it and now he's 75 years old.

No extras though. Just trailers.

Looking forward to seeing An Eye for an Eye next. I don't think I've seen that one since the old Embassy VHS.

Does she get naked in this like she did on Mischief? She honestly has some of the best tits you will ever see in that movie.
