Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 15th Anniversary remastered - 10/18/16

I'll buy the 4K of this. Remastered and new extras. I like the cover art for the blu. Too bad they didn't use it for the 4K one.

Saw this in NYC when it was only playing in a handful of theaters before wider release. Haven't seen it since. Extraordinary movie. Will look forward to this with joyful glee...

I'll probably upgrade my current BD. Looks like the new extras are significant. Plus, they finally added the Coco Lee music videos for the title song, which was excluded from the previous versions.

The music video was on the Region 3 release, which was pretty much identical to the US release. Which I found off that the music video was that only thing removed from it.

Yeah, there's a Mandarin and English version of the title song, so I'm guessing both will be included here. I actually prefer the Mandarin version.

I never purchased the Region 3 release, but I think I did see the artwork that showed it was on there. Strange that it was never included before since it's the title song and was nominated for an Academy Award.

That's awesome! Someone must have just picked a random production still.

I never did get around to buying this one on either DVD or Blu-ray. I might have to bite this time.

Yep. and this movie badly needs a remaster/restoration. Even the original dvd had so many print marks, and sometimes motion blurring during action scenes

Foreign DVDs had the theatrical subtitles. In North America, however, only the Superbit DVD had them.

We'll know Sony is fucking with us if they only put the theatrical subtitles on the UHD release.

Yeah I'm not a fan of that artwork. Looks kind of shitty and sloppily put together.

They should have just stuck with the original theatrical artwork.

Re: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 15th Anniversary remastered - 10/18/16

This definitely has different subtitles than the last US Blu-ray.

I only checked chapter 15 (death scene) so far, but the subtitles are identical to the first quote theatrical example at this link except it says "I've" instead of "I have".

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/150-bl...l#post16815059

Also, the subtitles do read as "I would rather be a ghost..." instead of "I'll drift next to you everyday as a ghost...".

Amazon doesn't seem to have the standard bluray listed. They have something called the Supreme Cinema series edition that's $27.99.

I can tell you just based on a cursory glance while checking the subtitles this new version looks considerably better to me.
