And two of those movies have already been in other Arrow giallo collections!

That said, the stories I saw on the other forum about troubles replacing the defective discs are from people who bought the Special Edition, because, supposedly, the Special Edition wasn't supposed to have defective discs, but some copies did for some reason, and Arrow was refusing to acknowledge that. So, if you truly are getting the Limited Edition, then there should be no issue with getting a replacement disc
I got my Limited Edition of the Donnie Darko 4k in and sure enough it did have the defective DISC 1. I reached out to Arrow and they said someone will process my request within 5 days. Now the waiting game to see if anything gets shipped to me.

I'm pretty sure I got a corrected disc in my Donnie Darko LE 4K set, though I picked it up quite awhile after release.

Did you have an issues with your copy?

The corrected disc says, "V2" at the end of the stock # on the actual disc.

I have the bad copy. For fun, I tested the disc and oh my, the authoring is bad. The picture stutters like it was trying to move through quicksand.

I'm hoping that Arrow comes through and issues me replacement disc.

Shawscope Volume 2 is $94.63 + tax and free shipping from Walmart via Deep Discount. Basically the same price it would be at current price + 15% off coupon whenever they have one, plus no extra shipping charge.

Just an update: I received the corrected Disc 1 in the mail. It came in a CD jewel case. I was happy at the quick turnaround. The return address was from MVD and not Arrow which I found interesting. I'm in the States. Anyways, watched it last night and I'm really happy with the transfer.

Arrow's announcements are tomorrow.

A few titles have leaked already, via a Canadian retailer:

My local Best Buy shows that they have the 12 Monkeys 4K UHD in stock for $25, is there any way to tell if it has the corrected disc based on the packaging?

I don't think they ever recalled and repacked the existing stock out there with corrected discs. The first pressing includes a collector's booklet, and subsequent pressings will not, but I don't think they've even repressed the first run. So, I would expect any purchase you make would have the original, incorrect disc which would need to be replaced.

Anyone get the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves limited edition? If so, how is it as a total package?

Amazon Amazon

The Shaw Brothers Shawscope Volume 2 set is now $104

I'm still holding out until it reaches under $100. I just have too much to watch right now and I can wait.

It's been under $100 at various sellers since the release. I got it for $94.63 in December.

Yeah I'm holding out until Amazon reaches that price point. It's just easier for me to order from them when it's available there and I get points on my Amazon Visa.

Pretty sure some retailer just had Shawscope Volume 1 for around $70 - $80 in a recent sale, so I see no reason that Vol. 2 won't reach that price eventually. I don't think these are in any danger of selling out, despite how well done they are.

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

Blackhat has a theatrical version and international version on that set. I’m curious if the international version is the cut that aired on FX several years ago? I recall Blackhat wasn’t even really that good and was a box office bomb. Surprised it’s getting this SE treatment.

It's not the director's cut that was on FX, they couldn't get the rights to it apparently.

I tried watching it again recently and fell asleep.

BLACKHAT was barely on my radar when I watched it on a DVD from the library, so I found out it tanked theatrically after I watched it . . . and actually didn't mind it, although not enough to bother with an edition like this. It definitely requires a certain frame of mind to get through, though, which almost felt intentional.

Sometimes it feels like the boutiques are running out of truly great stuff to pick from anymore. .

International cut shortens one scene. That's it. Honestly seems odd to include both cuts in that case.
Director's Cut restructures the film. It's still... Not great... But I recall finding it a bit more engaging, even if only slightly so. It really is a shame they couldn't get the rights. A 'restructured' cut exists out there on the internet for those willing to seek it out..someone took the theatrical cut Blu-ray and crudely stitched the scenes together to match the DC, more or less.

Yeah I think that one is a pass for me. I didn’t even really like it and I love most of Michael Mann’s work. I’m not about to throw away $20 something for a special edition of a bad movie.
