Arrow Video is cranking out a ton of releases and I don't think their staffing has gotten much bigger since their UK-only days.

Re: The Official Arrow Films 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread

I watched 12 Monkeys on Tuesday and didn’t spot anything. I rewound back to the time of the supposed screwup and had to watch it three times to notice something off.
It’s about 20 seconds long and has two shots repeated. I think unless you know this movie like the back of your hand, you probably won’t pick up on it. If you’re looking for it however, you’ll probably spot it.
It’s unfortunate so many people are freaking out about it and canceling their orders. Yes quality control seems to be lacking these days, but this is an otherwise excellent release. Shame to miss out on it because of 20 seconds in a 2 hour film.

I bought it and watched it. People get upset when there are missing elements in a soundtrack or if the studio has taken a mono track and made it two channel without including the mono as an option. Do I get all worked up about these things? No. However, I do think it would be more cost beneficial, as well as more customer friendly, to put a few extra sets of eyes and ears on these to catch them before they are out the door. Having to redo and replace potentially thousands of copies will eat into their bottom line. It's not like they announce these releases one week and they are in the stores the next.

What's funny is that Arrow's check discs are authored months in advance, ample time to check out these kind of problems. Though this error sounds like only a superfan may catch it.

4 gialli from Arrow in 1 month! I'm glad to see that this box set is all previously-unreleased titles rather than a repackage, and it's nice that their partnership with Synapse means I don't have to import Tenebrae.

Looks like the new Arrow Robocop 4K set is sold out. I can't find it anywhere.

The Robocop steelbook sold out before release. My preorder couldnít even be fulfilled, and the deluxe edition was gone at/immediately after launch too. But thereíll be a not-limited release at some point soon.

The LE is still available at Bullmoose. https://www.bullmoose.com/p/35349326...hy-cox-4kuhd-r

If this follows the pattern of their blu-ray then there will be a non-limited release that will not include the theatrical or TV cuts.

Re: The Official Arrow Films 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread

Tried again tonight on Hamilton Book and my order went through.

Yay!! A little expensive, but it's a limited and now OOP set, so the price I got it for is very reasonable compared to what the scalpers are selling it for in the secondary market.

I got very lucky. Found the limited edition Robocop 4K set at a Best Buy I never go to and apparently no else does, either.

Supposedly standard UHD editions of Robocop and American Werewolf are coming in July. And apparently it will only be the directorís cut of Robocop. Eh, Iím okay with that.

Re: The Official Arrow Films 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread

Arrow has the Robocop LE, but no Steelbook, although I've heard ordering direct from them is not the greatest experience. Can't blame anyone for waiting and saving money for the standard UHD. I have no idea when or if I'll ever watch the other cuts.

Also back in stock at DiabolikDVD. I cannot recommend them highly enough! Shipping is a flat $5 regardless of order size, but they pack their items with great care. https://www.diabolikdvd.com/product/...row-us-4k-uhd/

Saw a few copies at a Best Buy I stopped by earlier today.

Didn't realize it was OOP. Might have to go back and snag myself one.

Hopefully Hamilton Book gets more in stock, but won't hold my breath. If I can't that, will get the eventual standard release down the road.

On the bright side, I got my copy of Wild Things 4K from Arrow. Looking forward to re-watching some great 90s erotic trash.

Re: The Official Arrow Films 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread



I admittedly didn't think much of the last slasher that Arrow brought to Blu-ray, but I had a blast with Girls Nite Out, despite there not being much in the way of gore, nudity, or...y'know, a girls' night out. It's a second or third tier slasher, but I appreciate how it's conventional enough to serve as comfort food yet different enough to avoid feeling stale. And that bear costume is certainly a sight to behold!
