To all "NightWatch" fans...

A friend of mine who just returned from Moscow, where he stayed over the holidays, said the makers of the film released a new version (the "Goblin" version, is what he said), with different scenes and changed soundtrack, to the point in which parts of the plot are now totally different... and of course, "Daywatch" is being theatrically released now, in January...

Anyone else getting any feedback on Nightwatch 2? I'm hearing it's more of a comedy? WTF is up with that?

Not sure if this worth the dble dip for me...I have the Russian version and the movie was good at times, but at other times all over the place. The new version sounds interesting and may check that out when available and will probably check out Day Watch when available.

I know Fox was supposed to be the ones releasing this here in the States, did they do theatrical release over there and is this a Fox release? Main reason I ask is because they were supposed to have done this new technique with subtitles. Anyone see the movie when it played in the UK fill me in?

splattii 01-19-06 01:09 PM

You're right actually. These subtitles were supposed to be "revolutionary". I wonder if they won't try something like Survive Style 5+. There was a portion of that film that used subtitles in a manner I have never seen before. They managed to place the subtitles right were the action was, but without ruining the shot. Like if the action was top left, that's where the subtitles were. Bottom right = Bottom right...hell, even diagonal. It was really impressive.

PLAYITAGAINSAM,

In Russia, "Goblin" refers to a famous soundtrack dubbing guy that dubs foreign movies. This "Goblin" soundtrack features this one guy who dubs all the dialogue, including the actresses. At first, in the 90s, this was how dubbed Russian movies were. But now in 2006, this type of movie soundtrack dubbing is infamous and has a cult following. The current "Goblin" dubbed sountracks are basically joke soundtracks. Many current foreign bootleg DVDs released in Russia get an original soundtrack, a good Russian dubbing (with many different actors and actresses), and also the infamous "Goblin" joke soundtrack. I have the Two Towers Russian "Goblin" DVD and it is funny as hell. The Goblin sountrack turns a movie into a Monty Python movie...I have seen the Night Watch "Goblin" sold in Russian DVD stores, but I haven't bought it yet.

The main thing is that the "Goblin" version is not a different cut of a film - it's a joke version.

If you click on the "more technical details" link on the Amazon link posted above, it says that it's a Fox release.

toddly6666,

Thanks. I was about to bring in a copy of this Goblin Nightwatch, but if it's just a joke I won't bother

toddly6666 01-20-06 12:29 PM

SPLATTI,

Well, it's still funny to check the Goblin DVDs out, but only if you speak Russian. I only understand some Russian - my wife is Russian and she translated The Two Towers "goblin" DVD to me. Besides it having a comedy dubbing, the music changed at parts too, such as replacing the score with the Star Wars theme song at the beginning and a Led Zeppelin song played when gimli, Legolas, and Aragorn are just running across the land. The tampering with the soundtrack thing is the only funny thing that a non-Russian speaking person can find funny in it.

But other than that most of the Russian "Goblin" DVDs still have the original language and English subtitles if the original DVD has them. If you wanna play it safe, just pick up the original copy!

In Poland, this is still how the dubbing is done. In fact, they don't even bother to get rid of the original language track, so the dubber actually just talks on top of the original soundtrack.

animatedude 03-24-06 03:01 PM

the Tin edition is exclusive is to HMV

FantasticVSDoom 03-24-06 03:02 PM

Hmmm...Looks nice. I may revisit this one, but I am not sure if its worth the double dip.

jmj713 03-24-06 03:10 PM

The features do look enticing. I wonder if it'll be the same in R1?
