Re: UHD release announcements

Heat is with Fox currently, unfortunately. Fox is caught up in Disney's "We haven't officially abandoned UHD Blu-ray for catalog titles, but we're definitely also not going to release any ever again"...

Re: George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD -- 4K UHD (Theatrical, Cannes, Argento cuts) coming from Second S

For what it's worth, I just received a SteelBook from Zavvi last week, so they're currently still shipping to the U.S. As of this moment, my preorder for Dawn of the Dead is still active.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I agree 100% with everything Adam said. Sadly, the Criterion fan base has grown quite toxic over the years. Think about how furious collectors got when Criterion had the gall to bundle DVDs and...

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

I remember being excited for Versus when it first came out. The hype around it played it up as the ultimate Japanese cult movie of all time. Then I watched it and was bitterly disappointed at how...

Re: Vinegar Syndrome launching VSU - dedicated Ultra HD sublabel

It felt like Beastmaster was on HBO every day for a good stretch of the 1980s. But, like you, I don't think I ever actually sat to watch it start-to-finish in one sitting.

Re: George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD -- 4K UHD (Theatrical, Cannes, Argento cuts) coming from Second S

I would not count on that. Zavvi ships a lot of stuff in padded envelopes, even box sets that need more protection. See discussion earlier in this thread around post 148.

Most of the SteelBooks...

Re: Akira 4K UHD - December 22, 2020

I still have the original Bandai Visual Blu-ray that was annoyingly windowboxed on all four sides of the frame. Never got the Funimation reissue, which I believe corrects that. Does anyone know if...

Re: Question about color banding (I think?)

I don't have this particular disc to check, but color banding could be an issue with the content (over-compression can cause it) or could be an issue with the display. Hard to say unless someone can...

Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

In the studio's mind, the original mono track was flawed due to the condition or fidelity of the audio elements, and they were trying to "fix" it by removing all the bad sounds and replacing them...

Re: Official New & Upcoming Exclusive Steelbook Discussion Thread

The SteelBook looks like some college art student's failed attempt to prove how clever he is.

Re: Official New & Upcoming Exclusive Steelbook Discussion Thread

Putting a gas mask over the Scream face just makes it look silly and comical. Do the same to the Mona Lisa and I don't think anyone would miss the point that it's a joke.

Re: GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995): 25th Anniversary 4K UHD - September 8, 2020

I'm not generally a fan of putting slipcovers over SteelBooks, but the way the inner and outer layers of this one interact when you pull the case out is very striking. The problem it's giving me is...

Re: Official New & Upcoming Exclusive Steelbook Discussion Thread

Sorry, OldBoy. I agree with the others that this SteelBook art sucks. It's less "homage" than parody and seems really ill-fitting for the serious subject matter of the miniseries.

Re: GHOST IN THE SHELL (1995): 25th Anniversary 4K UHD - September 8, 2020

Sadly, those DVDs have aged really poorly. The transfers (especially the first season) are heavily edge-enhanced and have lots of compression artifacts.

If you like the show, the UK Blu-ray set...

My copy also arrived early despite a delivery estimate of Saturday. Now I'm conflicted about whether to open it over the song issue.

Yup, exactly. Even a real brain-dead idiot can process that the movie is ridiculing them, not endorsing their views.
