Re: Thief (1981 film directing debut by Michael Mann)

In all fairness the old "director's cut" (really a director's chance to tweak, years later, as with Heat and Mohicans) isn't that bad, just that the slow motion at the end was tweaked and ended up...

Re: Thief (1981 film directing debut by Michael Mann)

Nice. The look on Randy's face is priceless. I'm late to the party as usual.

I really hope it's not the fucking "director's cut" (a misnomer) or at least the not the same one as the old DVD.

Re: Heat is a hilariously taped-up mess

Two legends not being in the same shot sinks it for you? Shot/reverse shot is a classical method of a conversation, very commonplace in the modern era, probably thanks to TV conventions. In any...

Re: Thief (1981 film directing debut by Michael Mann)

I just want to add that Thief is available for streaming in HD on Netflix. I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know if it's cinema cut or director's cut (no mention of director's cut).

Re: Thief (1981 film directing debut by Michael Mann)

Are you referring to the "Director's Cut" DVD? It's almost like he added in footage from videotape; the framerate or whatever seems off. I have an old, grubby cinema cut on a UK DVD and it's in...

Goddammit. Is there any truth to the rumors that Criterion has acquired Thief?

Re: Thief - anamorphic release ever?

Wow, that's awesome, thanks for confirming. I wonder if something more will come in the future - I wonder if the Criterion rumors are true.

Apparently there's a 2009 release of Thief in the UK:

Re: Michael Mann's The Keep???

Thief is dark and probably ought to have a lot of grain - did you see the HD broadcast?

Considering we'll never see a hi-def Thief (much less fucking anamorphic SD), forget about The Keep.

Re: Thief - anamorphic release ever?

??? If it were anamorphic it would fill a 16:9 screen. It's not, so it's a box in a box, and looks like this on a 16:9:

Re: Thief - anamorphic release ever?

'None of the grain' could be a bad thing. I'll have to look at my SD recording again. This film has lots of grain. I hope they weren't heavy-handed with DVNR.

Re: Thief - anamorphic release ever?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but interestingly, Thief has been broadcast on MGMHD, and apparently it's the original cinema cut. I have a recorded SD copy of it, and it's much better than my UK...

Re: Predator: Ultimate Hunter Edition -- June 29, 2010

Anyway, Predator was shot on film and has fucking grain. Loads of it. THAT is how Predator should look. The screenshots from the new DVD look like a video game.

When I saw Forman speak last year he said the extra scene(s?) was added on DVD because the longer running time doesn't matter like it does in the cinema. He thought that dramatically it was kind of...
