are Arrow and Arrow Academy the same? I noticed that 'The Tin Drum' extended cut is being released by the latter in January (2012)

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

No interest in either of those (Burton looks unrecognizably haggard!), but nice to see them releasing movies that aren't Synapse titles.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Why bother putting a tagline on the cover if you just have to censor it?

That may have been how they presented the tagline when it was originally released.

Especially when it's a tame word like 'damn'.

I looked around and it appears that quote was only used on quad posters, and they didn't even use the "D". It said "The best **** mercenaries...". Interesting.

the Synapse easily is the best choice for me since all the reviews I've read rave about the near assaultive 6.1 soundmix.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Giles, at this point I think we all assume you'd buy a full frame, pan-and-scan DVD if it came with a 7.1 soundmix.

The Conformist

Bernardo Bertolucci's masterpiece on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

Awarded “Five Star” reviews during its theatrical re-release in 2008 by Empire (“Funny and frightening, seductive and satirical, ridiculous and tragic, this remains Bertolucci’s greatest film.”), BBCi Films (“One of the truly great films of the 1970s”), Time Out (“A dazzling film.”) and the Radio Times, amongst others, Bernardo Bertolucci’s undisputed masterpiece The Conformist comes to DVD and Blu-ray on 27th February 2012 for the first time in the UK courtesy of Arrow Academy.

At the peak of his creative powers the 29-year-old Bernardo Bertolucci eschewed the influence of mentor Jean-Luc Godard and partnered up with Vittorio Storaro and developed his own style for one of the most visually dazzling, politically and psychologically intriguing – and possibly greatest – of all Italian films.

Told in a non-linear structure that would go on to influence The Godfather Part II (although not the only influence on Coppola’s film), the story begins in Rome, 1938. Marcello (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a young fascist who takes on the job of assassinating his former professor who has fled to Paris. With his wife (Stefania Sandrelli) in tow, he meets the professor and his young wife (Dominique Sanda), with whom he begins to fall in love.

A thriller as well as study of Italian politics and psychological character, Bertolucci’s Oscar nominated adaptation of Alberto Moravia’s novel (an adaptation Moravia greatly admired) has gone on to influence filmmakers such as Paul Schrader, Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann and remains one of the great triumphs of world cinema.

The Conformist (cert. tbc) will be released as a dual format Blu-ray/DVD edition (£27.99) by Arrow Academy on 27th February 2012.

Special Features include: audio commentary by Italian cinema expert David Forgacs; feature length documentary Bernardo Bertolucci: Reflections on Cinema on Bertolucci’s career with on-set archive material and interviews directed by Sandro Lai (Blu-ray only); a comprehensive booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by critic Michael Atkinson, a re-printed interview with Bernardo Bertolucci from 1971 and Bertolucci’s thoughts on filmmaking, illustrated with original stills; High Definition Blu-ray and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film; HD restoration supervised by Director of Photography Vittorio Storaro in the original 1.66:1 aspect ratio; original Mono 2.0 audio; Italian language with optional English subtitles.
So no worries about a 2:1 reformatting by Storaro.

These Unlimited Editions will be released after the initial print run of the Edition collector’s know and love, which will now attain Limited Edition status as stocks become capped.

The first of the Arrow Video Unlimited Editions will be Caligula, which like all Arrow Video Unlimited Editions will have a much lower RRP of £19.99, and will be released on 20/02/12.

Future Unlimited Editions will be scheduled to appear shortly before Limited Editions sell out so there is not a gap in availability of any release.

Arrow Academy: Miracle in Milan [Dual Format]



Released: 26 Mar 2012

Overview: After his earth shattering Bicycle Thieves, Vittorio De Sica and long time screenwriter Cesare Zavattini turned their neo-realist ideas to something much more like a fable yet retaining the core ideas behind the revolutionary cinema movement. Miracle in Milan went on to wow critics and audiences, winning the Grand Prize of the Cannes Film Festival in 1951.

Always in the shadow of the ever more popular Bicycle Thieves, this largely unsung masterpiece tends toward magic realism to imagine a place where society’s most downtrodden can find purchase and possible escape from misery. Set within a fantastically theatrical shantytown, Miracle in Milan constructs an alternate world from De Sica and Zavattini’s fascination with marginalised perspectives. The unusual use of deliberate artifice and spectacle rekindles the Meliesian magical aura of early cinema.

Arrow Academy is pleased to present a new HD transfer of the film along with De Sica’s Il Tetto in this deluxe edition.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- High Definition Blu-ray and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film
- Full length feature: Il Tetto [The Roof], Vittorio De Sica’s 1956 film also written by Zavattini, made available for the first time in the UK on DVD
- Newly translated and more complete optional English subtitles on both features
- Interview with Manuel De Sica
- Interview with star Brunella Bovo
- Rome Premiere Newsreel Footage
- Original Trailer
- Comprehensive booklet including writing on Miracle in Milan and Il Tetto, a re-print of John Maddison’s 1951 article The Case of De Sica, illustrated with original stills and artwork.

The King of New York [Limited Edition SteelBook Blu-ray]

Released: 04 Jun 2012

Christopher Walken is out of prison and back on the dirty streets of New York as convicted drug lord Frank White in a pitch black 90s crime classic from the magnificently disreputable Abel Ferrara (Driller Killer, Ms.45).

White returns to his old patch to find it in disarray as the parasites that moved in to capture his business don’t share in the same Robin Hood spirit. Soon he’s violently taking out the competition, stealing their stashes and turning a healthy profit on the gear, putting it towards building a new South Bronx hospital.

But you can’t make an omelette without breaking some heads. As the street killings rise and the corrupt cops close in, White’s crazed mix of criminal psychosis and heartfelt charity threatens to tear apart everything he’s fought so hard to build...
