Yesterday my package for June arrived, including this one :

Lovely box-set from UK's Powerhouse Films, a company which i'm starting to like more and more each time i buy any of their releases.
Three movies, six discs, lots and lots of bonus features, and a hefty 80 page booklet.

More to follow.. much more ! [Cool]

Cool looking boxset Johnny and how's it going Helen hope your doing ok?

I picked up both these HMV exclusives on Blu the great Donnie Brasco with Pacino and Depp and a movie we were only discussing the other day De Palma's Casualties Of War with Sean Penn and Michael J Fox.

Both the above were on offer for 2 for £15 and you get the Blu Ray + Dvd and also the digital version plus a few picture cards and they come in a clear amaray Blu case case inside a slipcover.

I have seen it way back but was was Tony Scott's The Hunger like with David Bowie and also Outland from 1981 with Sean Connery as there both part of the offer as well.

Worth getting?

Warrior. Donnie brasco is very good. The fact that it was based on true events made it sweeter. If you haven't seen any documentaries about Joe pistone(the real life Donnie brasco) I recommend watching if you get the chance.

I read the book written by Pistone too. There was also a failed tv series, starring Jason Gedrick as "Falcone".

A good friend of mine is friends with Pistone. He says that he's quite a character with loads of stories. Donnie Brasco is a fine movie with great performances by Johnny Depp and Al Pacino.

Warrior, i haven't seen Outland in ages, but i'd definitely pick up The Hunger.. As a matter of fact, i did ! [Big Grin]
Well, not the edition you're referring to, but the one from the Warner Archives collection.

Here's some more from my June package :

 -  -  -

Paul Naschy's Inquisition (Mondo Macabro), obscure 80s splatter-fest Hack-O-Lantern, and upgraded to blu-ray
Blue Underground's new edition of Death Line, which was previously released on MGM region 1 dvd as Raw Meat.

Several more titles i've upgraded to blu-ray include Sergio Martino's All The Colours Of The Dark (Shameless UK),
Ovidio Assonitis' Madhouse and Dario Argento's The Bird With The Crystal Plumage (both from Arrow UK),
and Michael Winner's The Stone Killer and Paul Schrader's Hardcore (both from Powerhouse's Indicator series).

Plus a whole lot of stuff from Vinegar Syndrome, including Horror House On Highway 5, Joe Sarno's A Touch Of Genie,
The Undertaker (the Joe Spinell movie), and Hellbent, as well as their latest batch of vintage erotica dvd's.

Phew, that was quite a succesful month.. [Cool]

I have the MGM Region 1 of Raw Meat a/k/a Death Line. Until that release, the film was never even released on VHS in the U.S., and it was one of those films that somehow always eluded me. I eventually picked up a blurry VHS copy called "Train de Mort." [Smile] The MGM copy was excellent. It's a great film, one of the best 70s UK horror films.

Cheers Johnny I'll look at getting The Hunger while it's still on offer, definitely want to get around to watching Hardcore and Raw Meat one of these days as I have heard great things about both!

Managed to finally get around to watching Bronson's/Winner's The Stone Killer for the first time the other year and I really dug it,not many of Charlie's movies I have left to check out with the main ones being From Noon Till Three,Red Sun and Someone Behind The Door which he starred with Anthony Perkins and what I never knew was that it was shot on location about 19 miles from me in Folkestone Kent so that is very high on my to watch list despite it's mostly bad reviews!

Also the TV movie Raid On Entebbe as I'm not sure whether I've seen it before and St Ives from 1976.

Quick question are my pics displaying as sometimes when I check these posts they display where as other times they don't [Confused]

I only ask as I have had to change image hosting sites as I can't afford to give into Photobucket's ridiculous demands of 400 Us Dollars a year.

After watching these two movies above from Nu image/Millennium Films - October 22 (1998) and Scarred City also from 1998 and being rather impressed with them both I decided to check out some of there other 90s output and picked up these below -

No Code Of Conduct (1998) starring Charlie Sheen and his father Martin Sheen plus the great Paul Gleason (The Breakfast Club) and Mark Dacascos.

The Maker (1997) from the director of the Rivers Edge Tim Hunter and starring Matthew Modine,Mary - Louise Parker, Michael Madsen and a favourite of mine since watching her in The Craft Fairuza Balk.

Hollow Point (1996) from Iron Eagle director Sidney J Furie and starring Thomas Ian Griffith,Tia Carrere,John Lithgow and Donald Sutherland.

The Maker (1997) trailer -
https://youtu.be/qBJxc22Iaqs


http://www.imdb.com/company/co0024720/ - Looking back at Nu Images output during that time (90s) it seemed to be mostly low rent slam bang action flicks but with the difference being (well so far anyway from the ones that I have viewed) that you'd quite often have very competent directors in charge plus from time to time really solid casts!

Picked up both on Blu Ray Ken Russell's bonkers but great Crimes Of Passion with a stunning looking Kathleen Turner and a nutty as a fruit cake performance from the always terrific Anthony Perkins plus the 1996 Kevin Spacey directed thriller Albino Alligator starring Matt Dillon,Gary Sinise and Faye Dunaway.

Cheers Atomik yeah I like the new alternate artwork there for My Chauffeur,it's a fun movie and the Blu Ray is actually region free and has terrific sound and picture quality plus some cool extra features including a fun interview with Deborah Foreman.

My Chauffeur is definitely one of the better Crown International films. I've always liked that company. No, they never made films as good as Avco Embassy or even New World, but they made stuff with a lot of love of exploitation films and fun. I saw Galaxina again recently, and while that film gets slammed a lot, I think it's really pretty clever and funny for such a low-budget production. And you can't go wrong with the great Dean Cundey as your cinematographer.

Bit of a mixed bunch (as the usual) of Blu Ray/DVD pick ups these last few weeks I grabbed a couple of horrors on Blu - Waxwork and Ouija - Origin Of Evil which were both upgrades from Dvd plus the great fun 1984 comedy drama Electric Dreams also on Blu plus a bit a oddity but a watchable one at that and that is Party Animal/My Chauffeur director David Beaird's 1984 drama Octavia (US Dvd import) which comes across as a sometimes sleazy feeling love story about a blind young woman who has over the years been kept housebound by her abusive father and then one day meets an escaped convict on her father's grounds and the pair of them soon fall in love and then decide to run off together!

I do also own this title on VHS (below) and I think I do actually much prefer the artwork to my old EIV VHS /Beta cover over my new US DVD (above).

Loved the Electric Dreams Blu - a great buy for me.

I'm now curious about 'Octavia'...

Electric Dreams is ace,Octavia if I'm going to be honest is not a great movie as it can be way to melodramatic at times and some of the acting from certain co stars is a bit questionable but it's well shot and despite its many faults strangely watchable!
