Hey what the hell happened to the original thread? [Frown]


Anyway to continue where the missing thread left off, taking advantage of DVDSoon's free postage I just ordered these DVDs:

Ice Pirates
Masters Of The Universe
The Boy Who Could Fly
Weird Science
Pretty In Pink
Some Kind Of Wonderful

Replacing the VHSs I have of them, except Ice Pirates which I haven't seen before.

[Smile] Yay--I just ordered four movies on Sunday:

Little Shop of Horrors
Evil Dead
Evil Dead II
Army of Darkness

Army of Darkness came in yesterday.

I haven't been doing much shopping for myself lately, though, because of Christmas coming up. I don't want to buy something someone already got for me! Luckily I've finished shopping for gifts, so I can save up until after Christmas. [Big Grin]
 
Posted by The Wizard (Member # 533) on :
 
When I went back to order The Breakfast Club, DVDSoon wouldn't let me buy it, saying something about a locked account? [Frown]

DVD buying has been expensive recently:

TekWar the series
Crusade the series (that spin-off from B5)
Knight Rider season 1
Evolution
Outland
Spacejacked

Well after seeing Rocksteady's list of movies he wants on DVD, I took some notes and headed to the vintage video store. I came home with:

Lovelines- I didn't know Jonna Lee from Making The Grade was in anything else?!?

Off Beat-Judge Reinhold and Meg Tilly!

Run-Patrick Dempsey and Kelly Preston

I Love NY-Scott Baio looking rather sexy! Whoo-hoo!

Then there's my Ebay purchases:
Listen To Me-Kirk Cameron and Jamie Gertz

Hamburger The Motion Picture-Leigh McCloskey

I bought SNEAKERS in the boxing day sale at our local Woolworths (thats not a plug,just stretching out the reply [Razz] )
It was only £5 and thats not too bad for a Robert Redford movie.Especially when its a good movie.
And i know its not 80's..but its only very early 90's.

I actually sweet talked the nerdy manager guy at my local video store into selling me his copy of "The Wild Life"!

You see this great 80's movie is still not available on DVD ( whats going on Cameran??? )!

Yah its a pretty dirty copy, the sound and picture kinda stink. Guess I'll just have to wait with everyone else for the DVD, if I'm still alive for its release of course:(
 
Posted by stitch_groover (Member # 2895) on :
 
Not a movie as such, but I finally got the Beatles Anthology on DVD. I had it on a video that I taped off the telly a few years back, but the dvd has more than twice as much footage.

I'm a massive Beatles fan - I've got all the albums on cd and cassette, and even a couple on 8track (but I don't have a player).
 
Posted by GremlinBreakfast (Member # 2585) on :
 
Thanks Lupa!

I only bought the Teen Wolf DVD for the greatness that is the original... I guess its not that bad to have the sequel included for the same price though. Even if it sucks big time! [Wink]

I'm so happy about 'Little Monsters' on DVD though! [Big Grin]

~grems!
 
Posted by ValleyCat (Member # 1322) on :
 
Had a Christmas gift certificate and picked up these DVDs today:

Top Gun Special Edition
Weird Science
Prom Night
The Wraith
Trick or Treat
The Gate

Grems cool about Valley Girl...have you watched it yet? Give us scoop when you do.
 
Posted by Obscurus Lupa (Member # 2700) on :
 
Grems- Glad you're happy about the DVD. [Wink] Don't feel bad about the two-for-one sequel deal. I bought Gremlins 1 and 2 in a two-pack. You probably liked the sequel more than I did, though. [Wink]

pretty_in_shrinkwrap- I like your name a lot. [Smile]
 
Posted by GremlinBreakfast (Member # 2585) on :
 
Valley - No, I havent watched 'VG' yet! I've been way too busy these last few days! I'll make sure I post my review soon though! Muffy and Isis are on the edge of their seats waiting too! [Smile]

Lupa - I'm not a fan of 'Gremlins 2' either! I much prefer the darker humour of the original! I bought the stand-alone DVD though, so thats OK!

Oh and I brought some more DVD's.... I should ban myself for a little while!

*Round The Twist: Volumes 1-3! (A children's TV show made in Australia which I used to watch religiously! I ordered the earlier seasons which came out 89-92!) [Big Grin]

*Mr Bean: Complete Series Collection! (The UK comedy I used to watch and love as a child, and haven't seen any of since - even though some of them have been repeated over Xmas!)

*Eerie Indiana (Although its not 80's, I used to love this show before it got cancelled!)

Grems- I hear ye'. I bought the 2-pack having not seen all of Gremlins 2, and I thought it'd be better. I mean, it was kind of a nice goofy movie, but it didn't do it for me. Sometimes it got a little much.

None of the DVDs I ordered in the first post in this thread have arrived yet [Frown] neither had my Knight Rider season 1 set which has been posted, but Vampire's Kiss arrived this morning, still wrapped up I've never seen it before, bought it because people were talking about it and it was only a few quid.

On the subject of Vampires Kiss, I just saw National Treasure also with Nicholas Cage in, enjoyed it very much for what it was, just wish some bits could've been extended (won't mention what as I don't want to put spoilers in).

I bought Running on Empty for $5.50 on DVD!! And The Thing Called Love on VHS. [Big Grin]
 
Posted by The Wizard (Member # 533) on :
 
Recently got:

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure DVD, but found out the UK DVD only has stereo audio whilst the US has 5.1, meaning I'm gonna have to buy the R1 copy (damn)
I-Man (1986) DVD - Scott Bakula of Quantum Leap stars as a man who accidentally inhales a gas retrieved from space which makes him indestructable, also stars Joey Cramer of Flight of the Navigator, it was a pilot for a series that was never made
Lord of the Rings:The Return of the King special extended version, 4 hour film! it's gonna be great to watch the trilogy all over again when I've built my projector [Smile] (6 foot by 5 foot screen!)
Cabin Fever DVD - terrible film, I like bad movies but this was a waste of £5
Signs DVD - enjoyed this, especially with 6 channel sound

TresFoxy, Spinal Tap is indeed a classic (does your volume control go up to 11?), I didn't think much of Bright Lights Big City though
 
Posted by Obscurus Lupa (Member # 2700) on :
 
I got a big DVD load, so here goes:

Monk- season 2
Buffy: the Vampire Slayer- season 2
My Boyfriend's Back
Tremors
Tremors 2
Tremors 3
Tremors 4
Jurassic Park 3
MST3K- I Accuse My Parents
MST3K- The Crawling Hand
 
Posted by The Wizard (Member # 533) on :
 
Lupa, I very much approve of Monk, Tremors & MST3K, good choices [Big Grin]

Just won bidding on a German DVD release of "Zapped! (1982)" and "Zapped Again! (1993)", the eBay seller has another DVD I've bid on that I will win, "Tomboy (1985)"
 
Posted by Canyoudigit. (Member # 2703) on :
 
Those German DVD's can be very dodgy Wizard, i bought Joysticks and it was nothing more than a worn out VHS transfer with the end missing. Still a rare film and it was cheap.
 
Posted by The Wizard (Member # 533) on :
 
I've only bought a few DVDs from Germany so far:
"Freaked", aka Hideous Mutant Freekz starring Alext Winter and Keanu Reeves, audio and picture quality were excellent, I even ended up buying a few more copies and selling them for £20-£30 back on eBay [Big Grin] (this was before the UK release)
"The Wizard", the picture quality isn't what you'd expect of a standard DVD release but it's still very good when you compare it to VHS, only drawback is German audio but I re-mastered it with original English audio from my VHS
"The Goonies", it's what the original UK release should have been, perfect audio+video with all features & commentary track, but I gather the UK release has been sorted now
"ReBoot", season 2 was just released recently, also with German dubbed audio only but I'll re-master it with original English audio again, shouldn't be any problems with picture quality because the source is CGI

I've only had 2 DVDs that are worse than the original VHS, UK The Wraith that looks like it came from VHS, and the UK release of Breakdance 2 of which they must've sourced it from an NTSC laserdisc, it was very badly done, film converted to NTSC using 3:2 pulldown and then that directly converted to PAL (badly) with a horrible green tint to the picture, not to mention the audio - worst thing I ever heard from a DVD because it's got this severe high pitch whine in the background meaning I couldn't watch it for more than 5 minutes before ejecting the disc and never playing it again, and they had the gaul to charge me £11 for that crap... my Betamax tape of it looks+sounds better!

Along with nearly the last of my collection of Carry On... movies, I just got (and watched) Thunderbirds - urge you to give it a chance, because (a) it's nowhere near as bad as people make out, and (b) the building used for the San Francisco City Hospital early on in the movie is actually the building where I work.

Also, just pre-ordered the 2-disc edition of The Incredibles which is released here in the UK in about six weeks.

I've been in a major Geena Davis mood lately--I recorded The Fly the other night and watched it a couple times, but I doubt I'll buy the movie (Way too sad. [Frown] ). So I picked up a couple movies she starred in:

CutThroat Island
The Long Kiss Goodnight

I haven't seen CutThroat Island yet, and when I saw The Long Kiss Goodnight I missed half an hour of the beginning and it was edited for TV. Hopefully it wasn't a bad buy. [Smile] They certainly aren't in the same style as Transylvania 6-5000 or Earth Girls Are Easy (Which is funny, because I can watch The Long Kiss Goodnight and think, "Geena Davis with the blonde hair looks an awful lot like she did when she put the wig on in 'Earth Girls.'" [Big Grin] ).
 
Posted by Bionic Bigfoot (Member # 2490) on :
 
I liked both of those, Lupa. Cutthroat Island is a good pirate movie with lots of action and adventure. It has humor too.
I don't think you will be disappointed in either one of them.

Got the Critters box-set in the post today of all 4 films, last Friday I received 9 DVDs from Russia - seasons 1-3 of ReBoot, dubbed in Russian but the picture quality is very very good, I bought them because the first two seasons haven't been 'officially' released yet except S2 in Germany (dubbed in German) but the picture quality is poor. Going to remaster the DVDs with original English audio sometime.

I picked up "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" yesterday. They had a deal where, if you bought four DVD's, you got a FREE DVD PLAYER! How sweet is that. The other three movies are more recent though: Finding Nemo, Whale Rider & Blue Crush.

Fairytale_17 - Less Than Zero is one of my favourite 80's movies. I hope you enjoy it

metal80's: very jealous about the "Lost Boys Special Edition". I love that movie.

Now that we have a DVD player, I'll have to stock up!

It's great hey? It's also the type of movie that's gritty enough to enjoy 10 or 15 years down the track too. It's dated but with superb acting (Robert Downey Jr is AMAZING!!), it's timeless. I think Downey Jr is one of the nost underrated actors of our time

Hi,
Today at the closeout store they had the movie "Westworld" for only $1.99 so I bought it. It is about this future hedonistic utopia theme park populated by various kinds of cyborgs intended to interact with the guests in all kinds of ways. The movie starred Richard Benjamin and James Brolin and also Yul Brynner as a bad *** black hatted cowboy.
This movie is special because it is among the first movies I ever saw in the theater just with friends and no parents along. We were all giggly high school sophomores.

Oh I have gotten a lot of great movies lately. It always seems that I will take a break and not be into my dvd collection, then all it takes is I get one new dvd, and my juices start flowing and I go crazy buying more and more Here is a list of what I got JUST THIS MONTH!! [Smile]

Indiana Jones Trilogy
Gremlins Special Edition
Pump Up The Volume
Veggie Tales Collection
The Girl Next Door
50 First Dates
Eurotrip


This is really the first time in a long time I bought some movies that werent 80s flicks. They were having a big sale at my local rental place so I picked a few up.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but you should DEFINATELY pay attention to the 5.50 bins they have floating around at almost every wal mart. I have found a lot of great 80s movies there for a very cheap price. I bought Flashdance there for 5.50, and Circuit City is still charging 17.95 for the exact same DVD. Also I have found Beverly Hills Cop II, The Golden Child, Three Amigos, and St. Elmos Fire. Some of these DVDs are really good too! With Anamorphic Transfers and special features. Others like The Golden Child, are just a plain ol' widescreen aspect ratio, and nothing extra. But still, an 80s movie on dvd for 5 bucks, and at least its the widescreen, even if not anamorphic. Ok Im rambling.

starting in September I can see my DVD collection growing by leaps and bounds as Bismarck is finally getting a Best Buy. Right now all we have is a few overpriced places in which to buy DVD's and since I don't have a credit card buying online has never been an option. Good thing that it's not going to be directly across the street from my apartment like my favorite restaraunt is.
 
Posted by Obscurus Lupa (Member # 2700) on :
 
Check out grocery stores for bargain bins--They'll have movies like The Wraith for $5.50.

I also bought License to Drive Special Edition this weekend. Thats a GREAT DVD. Not only is it a really fun movie, but it at least appears to have some really nice special features. I didn't get a chance to watch them last night, but there are new interviews with both the Coreys! I have high hopes for the special features on this dvd, as the insert includes a REALLY nice collectible booklet. It has a trivia quiz about the movie, and then brief information about all the actors in the movie, how they got the parts, and what happened to them later. Its REALLY nice and if the quality of that insert is any reflection of the special features on the DVD then this one will rank as one of my favorite DVD's I have bought in a long time.

I think widescreen has the aspect ratio 1.85:1 and the anamorphic widescreen has the aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The anamorphic has a wider viewing area than regular widescreen. On a regular TV, the regular widescreen fills more of the screen vertically. Anamorphic is thinner vertically, but is more widescreen. I think I got that right.

I recently bought:
Heavy Metal
The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
Watership Down
Krull (haven't received it yet)
The Hunt For Red October
Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Brandon- If you look back, that link the other guy posted does an AMAZING job of explaining Anamorphic.

Basically tho, Anamorphic widescreens have been stretched, so then when played on a widescreen tv, or a tv with a widescreen enhanced mode they will have a MUCH BETTER picture quality.

It was one of the features that made the DVD such a big deal. So when a movie is released without it, it really urks me. In fact I ran into Best Buy to pick up Big last night. Can you believe my wife has never seen it?!?!?! And I told her if its 10 bucks Ill get it, if its 15 we will rent it. Well it was 10 bucks, but it was a non anamorphic widescreen so I passed anyways. Chances are a movie that popular with such a crappy initial DVD release is destined for a Special Edition sooner or later....

A word of warning to online DVD buyers: Stay well clear of DVDSoon.com, their service has recently taken a severe turn for the worse, many many customers had their pre-orders cancelled and given store credit, they now have a no-refunds policy so a lot of those customers have contacted their CC company for refunds, also when you order something only 25% of the cost can come from the store credit.
There are a lot of cheesed off customers: http://forums.dvd-swaps.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=22

"have you ever, ever felt like this? when strange things happen are you going round the twist"

of all the useless information, I can't recall what I was doing last week, but remember the theme tune to a show I rarely watched. It was an OK programme, there was an episode with a girl who could read minds (it was kind of like a lightwieight Aussie version of 'Eerie Indiana').

I have Return to Oz on DVD. That movie is really cool. It is very weird, considering that Dorthy was sent to an insane asylum. They made the characters look exactly like they were illustrated in the books. It's a very entertaining movie.

I didn't check Best Buy. Walmart also had the 1 discer for $15.99. Soon enough the 2 disc set will be down to $19.99. I'll wait until then. Napoleon Dynamite was $19.99 forever and I refuse to pay that much for a single disc edition. I picked it up on Black Friday for $8.

As Borat himself would say, "It ni-i-ice!"

I missed out on the film when it played in theaters last year, but I rented it last week, and thought it was hilarious. I love the Kazhakstan national anthem: "Kazakstan, greatest country in the world. All other countries are run by little girls. Kazakhstan is number-one exporter of potassium. Other Central Asian countries have inferior potassium..."

It's the kind of movie that Andy Kaufman might've made if he were still alive today.

Actually the title is a little misleading.

The DVD contains footage that isn't shown on the TV edited version of the movie.

It's basically the version shown in the cinema. Nonetheless it's a great movie, one that I would recommend to anybody.

the embassy uk vhs/beta cover.

Both films look very good on blu ray,especially prom night which looks seriously good for what is a 35 year old movie.

Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
The last mill creek title I picked up was - the legend of Billie jean on blu ray,it was really good value for money for me to import it from the us it was just over 4 uk pounds (i think about $6).

They've just released another one of my favorites on a bargain priced blu ray and that is heartbreak hotel.

Yeah I've seen those multi pack dvds muffy there really good value,a while back I think I remember being tempted in buying a set (I'm sure it was mill creek),it had 4 or more films and I'm sure one of them was a film I had never seen and been wanting to watch and that was blame it on the night (1984).

Now I can't find it anywhere.

Private Resort
Hardbodies
Spring Break
Calendar Girl.....I only paid $5 for it!

So u like beach movies Muffy. Love Spring Break.
Last night scored all these on BETA. Remember those. Breakfast Club, JANE fondas original workout and a bunch of those old Disney(60s and 70s)in the best clamshell cases ever made where the inserts do not pull.out.

wow! 5 dollars,now that is a bargain,i own 4 of those titles - side out,private resort,hardbodies and spring break.

calendar girl i have heard off but never watched and sure lovelines is the one i watched a big part of on youtube and found it really amusing,but for some reason never got round to watching it all.

is that the one where they have the battle of bands competition and near the begining they have a synchronised swimming event at a college and for some reason all the women in the pool end up with no clothes on.

i hope that's what happened unless i imagined that scene [Big Grin]


 -


there's a few on this one i've actually never seen,i own billie jean on blu ray,i've seen little nikita,but not seen any of the others.

blame it on the night is the one i'd like to check out but i'm also pretty curious about fresh horses with andrew mccarthy and molly ringwald.

immediate family i'm actually starting to think i may have actually watched at some point but not 100% sure,i know it's got kevin dillon in it.

that's a molly ringwald movie i've never seen - maybe baby it was known on this side of the pond but i think it was known as for keeps in the states.

anyhow for that price of around the 5 dollar mark they are what you'd call a bargain and a half.

you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with these budget movie collection dvd releases.


 -


what a cool collection - it's worth picking up in my oppinion for tuff turf alone if you've never seen it.



 -


same applies here with this set if you can get your hands on it cheap enough - all of me,if you've never seen it in my oppinion is also worth picking this set up for alone,let alone the added bonus of - you can't hurry love,my chauffer,touch and go and date with an angel which are all pretty good fun movies and well worth a watch. .

never seen shanghai surprise or from the hip but i've heard weekend pass is a bit of a stinker,you always tend to get one rotten apple in these packs.


 -


in the uk you can pick this deadly desires pack up for 4-5 uk pounds (6-7 dollars) and if you don't own them or have never seen them i would definitely recommend relentless,no mercy and the quiet.

i've seen trapped,physical evidence and in the cut and really need to watch them again but i think i remember them being a good enough watch.

but for the asking price i'd say it's a no brainer!

Pumpkinhead (1988)

"A man conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son." (IMDb)

I've never seen this, so hope it's as good as it sounds.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Pumpkinhead's pretty great j2me,i can't think of any reasons of the top of my head why you wouldn't like it.
The set designs and the actual pumkinhead monster it self are really awesome,plus lance henriksen is a terrific actor.

Put it this way I've had it on vhs,DVD and when the price,well it's at pretty good price at the moment but when it does go down a bit more I'm going to be getting it on blu ray.

So that gives you a bit of an idea what I think about it,a great horror film.

scream factory have also released the sequel which I have seen but remember very little from,one thing I do remember though is it doesn't live up to the original.

J2me did you watch the original death wish the other day I take it on blu ray,what was picture and sound quality like,did it seem like a step up from DVD?

Cheers j2me,one last quick question,I know it's distributed by warner in the us did it come in one of those stupid Eco cases with the big holes in?

The odd title I've ordered lately has had damaged artwork from where they've used the Eco cases.

It probably won't stop me from buying it if it has but it's so annoying when you want the covers looking good on your shelf but they turn up slightly beaten up because there's inadequate support because half the cover is missing due to bit of penny pinching on the distributors behalf!

saw this a few years back on a uk thorn emi vhs that was slightly trimmed of violence,it's a pretty decent wilderness horror/slasher.

i thought i'd get myself a blu ray or 2 but i didn't want to spend to much money so i set myself a 10 uk pounds limit.

plus amazon do free delivery over 10 pounds which was the main issue.

so i got myself brian de palma's - the fury (1978) on blu ray for just over 6 pounds .


 -


also got on blu ray 2009's ninja (under 5 uk pounds) starring scott adkins,which is sought of like a throwback to the old 80s ninja flicks.

obviously not as much fun as say american ninja 1&2,revenge of the ninja etc but still pretty cool all the same.

i quite like scott adkins,i've seen him in quite a few fun action flicks - ninja 1 and 2,assasination games,universal solder - day of reckoning,the horror movie - stag night etc.

not ever checked out the fight flicks -undisputed 2 & 3 which he appears in but have heard they are a lot of fun.

so in the end i spent not much over 10 pounds,got the free delivery i wanted and 2 movies i really enjoy,especially - the fury,been wanting to get that since it came out!

I took a quick look at several of my new dvds and blu-rays, just to get a first impression.

New Year's Evil and Dangerously Close have very handsome transfers.. nothing really to complain about.

The Slaughterhouse blu-ray from 88Films was somewhat less impressive. Sunny daylight scenes look way too dark.
It's not a bad transfer by any means, but those interested in buying this should keep in mind that even the best
restoration process can only go as far as the condition of the source material allows it to go, i guess.
It looks appropriate for the type of movie it is.. Just don't expect any miracles for this one.

I also have all 4 Toxic Avenger movies on blu-ray from 88Films, and if you really want to be surprised,
i suggest you check out part 2. It benefits tremendously from the upgrade to HD, and looks truly amazing on blu-ray.
In fact, it looks way better than any of the other three, even when compared to part 4 which was made a decade later !

I'd say go for it muffy,it's not perfect by any means but for what was probably put together on a relatively small budget it's both stylishly shot and quite entertaining.

It's got a great cast and a cool soundtrack as well and it definitely gives of that 80s vibe.

I own it on vhs and when funds allow me I will look at upgrading it to blu ray so that gives you some idea to how much I like it.

So yeah I'd say give it a go,or you could hold off if your still not sure and see if it pops up in the sales at some point down the line.

I remembered Dangerously Close from the glory days of the videostore era, but had never actually seen it.
The first impression i got when i was checking out my new blu-ray copy was that it was in fact much better
and more serious than i expected.
 
Posted by Muffy Tepperman (Member # 1551) on :
 
OK thanks guys! I'm going for it. That and the high spirits/ vampires kiss blu! I'll let you know!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I should think you will like it muffy,it has got a few flaws,the acting's a bit stiff at times and also it does have a bit of a low budget feel to it all but there's enough positives (cast,soundtrack,etc.) I feel to give it a good recommendation.

I like it anyway.

I want to get the high spirits/vampires kiss blu ray,I really enjoyed both movies.

I know vampires kiss gets a lot of stick from some but I found parts of it so funny.

It's definitely bonkers!

just ordered two 80s comedies that i have never seen and they are morgan stewart's coming home starring jon cryer on dvd


and


 -

from the hip starring judd nelson,john hurt and directed by bob clark (porky's).

did want to try and get - a thing called love (another film i've never seen) starring river pheonix but it was a bit to expensive for my taste!

i bet that looks good on blu ray johnny the remastered version of robocop.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
It does. I watched it yesterday ! [Smile]

I knew this remastered version had been released in the US as well as the UK.. turned out it was also released
right here in Holland.. and easily available for just under 10 euro's !

It's getting kinda confusing though, since there have been several different dvd releases,
and also 2 different blu-rays, not to mention numerous box-sets too !

This is the one to get : www.blu-ray.com/movies/RoboCop-Blu-ray/89781/#Review

The review is for the US version, but the exact same disc is available in different territories.

This is what I've picked up in the last fortnight or more,I got Morgan Stewarts coming home,from the hip (slightly damaged cover,stupid security code tags and Eco cases) and idle hands imported from the states.

Also took a trip into my city center of Canterbury (which is a rare event for me) and popped into hmv and picked up - slaughterhouse on blu for 8 pounds 99 pence,the unholy for 4 pounds which I haven't seen for years and wanted to check out again and 90s slasher valentine for 3 pounds,can't remember much from this,it might suck but at 3 UK pounds it's not the biggest loss and probably about the same sort of price as a rental.

I've never seen punchline,rich and famous or american yakuza.

Been wanting to watch punchline for some time now,rich and famous is one that's completely passed under my radar,not sure whether I've actually ever come across that one before and american yakuza is one I've heard off but never seen.

I just looked up American yakuza and it has got a really good cast viggo mortensen,Michael nouri and one of my favorites Robert forster,it sounds good.

I have seen - The Believers and that is really great as is only you with Downey and tomeI.

Hey Warrior, did your Dangerously Close blu-ray come in that transparant case ?

My own copy had a traditional blue one. [Confused]
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
I haven´t seen Punchline, Rich and Famous or American Yakuza either.
I remember loving The Believers when i saw it in the late 80s and i remember watching Only You when it was released here on vhs in the mid 90s.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
No your not going crazy johnny, it did come in the traditional blue case but it had a nasty crack on the edge of the case so I replaced it with one of the transparant amaray cases I picked up of eBay a while back.

That's the trouble now,half the cases (especially Eco) are no way as strong as they used to be,add on to that a heavy handed postman and you normally get a dvd/blu ray through your letterbox that looks like its come from a warzone!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Always remember picking up a pile of DVDs of my cabinet and at the bottom was the Jon cryer comedy hiding out which happened to be in an Eco case and my fingers literally pushed in some of the artwork,there's no support there whatsoever.

That's why I hate them so bad,you pay good money for some of these films and to get what is in all respects about half a dvd/blu ray case with all these holes punched in them is a big joke!

At least olive films (that released dangerously close) and scream factory do there releases in the traditional cases,it's Warners and some of the others that are guilty of it.

Ah yes.. a couple of years ago i bought the Urban Action Collection, a terrific 4-movies-on-2-dvds set
pairing Black Belt Jones and Hot Potato on disc 1, and Black Samson and Three The Hard Way on disc 2.
It was packaged in another one of those eco-cases (and yes, it was indeed a Warner Brothers release)..
It turned out disc 2 had a crack, from the outside right to the centre.. like something penetrated
through the outer case breaking the disc. God knows what happened to it, but it takes a lot of blunt force
to actually break a disc. They massacred a perfectly fine double-dose of classic blaxploitation ! [Mad]

I think johnny we should send black belt Jones round to the warner studios to throw some hot potato's at them.

Johnny when you get chance if you can let us know what the transfer is like for phantom of the opera on blu ray I would be grateful,I have a region 1 DVD of it and wouldn't mind upgrading to the blu.

I picked up scream factory's new years evil blu last week and will definitely pick up class of 1984 at some point and invaders from mars.

Dirty weekend that's one film I've not seen in a long time,never seen - let's do it again or Ellis island.

I also have that same region 1 MGM dvd version.. so last night i did a direct comparison between the two.

Blu-ray.com did a review not too long ago and rated the blu-ray's video-quality three stars,
just like they did with Scream Factory's New Year's Evil disc. But to be honest, i was very happy
with how that one turned out when i actually saw it for myself.. and i can easily assure you the same goes
for The Phantom Of The Opera. The new blu-ray version looks considerably sharper with much more detail.
(In fact, the older dvd looked rather soft and kinda disappointing once i saw the blu-ray transfer)

Plus an array of very cool new bonus features which include the participation of Robert Englund,
Jill Schoelen, and director Dwight H. Little (to name but a few), make this blu-ray well worth the upgrade !

Another good job by the fine folks at Shout / Scream Factory ! [Smile]

Cheers johnny I will definitely pick that up at some point,it's not to badly priced either for a scream factory release.

Johnny have you ever seen the 1980 prison flick - brubaker with Robert Redford,when I was browsing through import blu rays I noticed that it was going for pretty cheap,I have seen it years back but can't remember what I thought of it,I'm tempted in picking it up .

Has Anyone seen brubaker (1980) before,is it Any good ?

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I love almost all of Cronenberg's stuff, but that said, Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars are not for every taste, nor are they his best films. Maps is more accessible, mostly because it so twisted and laugh-out-loud funny in spots. I can admire Cosmopolis more than really enjoy it. It's very well done--most of the action taking place inside Robert Pattison's limo--but it's all talk, which I found interesting, until Paul Giamatti shows up, and there's some semblence of a linear plot. Pattinson and Giammatti are both superb, as is Julianne Moore in Maps. When you see them, Johnny, note the inside Cronenberg joke: In Cosmopolis, Pattison rides in the back of the limo; in Maps, he drives the limo. [Smile]

Now if you want to talk about cinematic classics such as Weekend at Bernie's and Caddyshack, I am all ears.

Caddyshack 2 is another undiscovered masterpiece of the cinema. OK, you got me there. Obviously I would have to say that overall it's technically a bad movie but I can't help but love it. It really is very funny. I stand by this movie. Thumbs up for me [Big Grin]

I feel the only thing that really ruined the movie was having Dan Aykroyd in it. He is great in certain movies but his character in this absolutely sucked. Minusing a star for Aykroyd's appearance in the movie, I give this a solid 9/10.

I think some fellow Rewinders are going to start coming out of the woodwork to back me up on this. Guys...Guys?

Posted by Bernie_Lomax (Member # 8571) on :
 
It's hard to put a finger on but the first one is much more suspenseful. It's eerie even when the shark is not around. The second just seems to consist of a shark going around and chomping on the locals and don't get me started about the scene where the shark eats the helicopter. The shark in the 3rd one looks diabolically fake especially when they have a tracking shot of it coming towards the glass. The 4th one is plagued by bad acting, bad story, cardboard shark etc...Mind you I can still kinda sit through 2 and 3 but 4 is a definite no no.

My main point though was that both my brother and I would have preferred to have gotten the first 3 rather than the last 3.

If you enjoy them that's great! What do others think about 2 and 3? I know some people actually prefer 2 to the original. I don't know how but hey it's all a matter of personal taste. Does anyone prefer 3 to the original? Please don't tell me that anyone prefers 4 to the original....please [Big Grin]

Let's get some other takes on 2 and 3.

I had a bit of a nose around my town centre of Canterbury this afternoon and went into poundland and picked these up for 1 pound each (it wouldn't be poundland otherwise [Big Grin] ) so to put that into perspective for all you people across the seas it's about the same or cheaper than a 2 pint of milk here in the UK!

I picked up stolen hearts aka two if by sea with Sandra bullock and Denis Leary,family business with Connery,Hoffman and Matthew Broderick and death sentence starring Kevin bacon.

Also picked up two Belinda Carlisle CDs that I have purchased already many years back but for the life of me can not find.

I have watched all three films before but can remember next to nothing from them but I thought for just a single pound each even if I don't like them it's not such an issue as if I was paying full price!

It states that the DVDs were pre owned but every single DVD and case was in immaculate condition which I was pleased about.

Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking terdnthepoolggb how comes it was allowed to go on for as long as it did,I know you've got to be careful when it comes to restraining a minor but surely someone could have acted quicker than what they did.

5 dollar off coupons - sounds good to me!


We've got quite a few off these budget stores pop up over here in the UK over the last few years since the economy went down the pan and it seems to be having quite a knock on effect with the larger superstores with some of them having to make cut backs but at least one advantage from it all is it keeps prices competitive.

Yeah, got that one, not bad. My favourites are Husk, Rogue River and Scream Of the Banshee. Should avoid Hybrid like the plague tho.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Yeah husk that's another one that's pretty decent,the corn fields make for a pretty cool setting.

Never seen hybrid and it sounds like I should probably keep it that way!

here's a few that i've picked up over the last month or so

pleased with picking up the omen trilogy blu ray for just £6.99 which i think is a decent bargain as i really like the original as well as damien omen 2 which i also think is great,i don't dislike part 3 either though i will admit it's definitely the weakest of the three.

it's good for a laugh terdnthepoolggb,i picked it up for under 2 uk pounds and i'd say it was well worth that.

it's the only one from the bunch that's not 80s,well that and the original omen,it was made in 1990.

i've always thought the second part - damien the omen 2 was really well shot and even though it
may not quite hold up to the original it's not a million miles off.

jonathan scott taylor is really great in the role of the devil child damien and it's got a really solid cast including william holden,lee grant and the ever excellent lance henriksen.

for a sequel bernie it's pretty good stuff,part 3 is weak by comparison but still worth checking out!

bernie the pet sematary blu ray is an australian import and one thing i can't get over is how ridicously large your age certificates are on the covers,do you think that they think that you're all short sighted or something [Big Grin]

saying that all our releases now carry both the uk age certificate as well as ireland's age certificate as seen on the omen boxset so they also stick out like a sore thumb!

Ginger meggs,I think that's a bit of a new one to me,I don't think I've ever come across that one before atomik,I see it's an Australian comedy.

It gets quite a positive feedback on imdb,sounds pretty good actually!

Shot in new South Wales Australia the same as another Aussie flick we was talking about earlier - the coca cola kid .


Another one I can think off that was shot there was razorback,that's one I've not seen for a while!

I can remember the visuals,location etc played a big part in that movie,it was quite stylishly shot by Russell mulcahy.


Actually atomik the movie ginger meggs it not that cheap to pick up over here in the uk,I've seen it for about 16 UK pounds upwards so it must be getting pretty scarce,it's probably out of print or something!
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
I didn´t know anything about Ginger Meggs before.

I have Razorback UK dvd. The last time i watched the film was in the early 90s so there´s one more i should check out again.

Oh, i also got this Australian film which features lovely Claudia Karvan:

The Heartbreak Kid (1993)

picked up over the last couple of months - the creator on dvd from the local pound store on the recommendation of atomik,heard good things about this one!

devil's night which i have watched which was totally different from what i was expecting but was not bad at all i thought,got a couple of way out there twists which you have to go with to enjoy it though!

the roost i picked up cheap,i have seen it way back but can't recollect what i thought of it so for the price i thought i'd check it out again,see if it was anygood.

dead of winter i really like and eve of destruction is daft but a lot of fun,not checked out either blu ray yet.

Not a bad flick aTomiK. They had a series based on this too called Heartbreak High which also starred Alex Dimitriades (at least the early episodes did). The pilot episode is very similar to the movie.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
Yeah, they aired Heartbreak High here and i remember watching few episodes.

warrior, i´m glad you got Creator. Dead of Winter is very good, i should rewatch Eve of Destruction.

Aww, I used to love Heartbreak High
 
Posted by Bernie_Lomax (Member # 8571) on :
 
Yeah it was pretty good especially to begin with but Dimitriades must have thought at the time he was onto bigger and better things. The show wasn't really the same without him.

I saw Tornado and Flashpoint back in the 80s and remember liking the films very much.
Never seen Seven/Cloak & Dagger.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I've never seen cloak and dagger but have always wanted to,when you get chance atomik let us know what it is like.

Always liked dabney coleman,I see it's directed by Richard franklin (psycho 2) and written by tom Holland (fright night ) so I'd say the money is on it being good!


I've got flashpoint on DVD and that is a pretty great thriller,not seen tornado or seven though but they look pretty cool,especially seven with tough guy William Smith and a load of playboy playmates.

I bought the Australian film Street Hero form 1984. Never heard if it before. It stars Vince Colossimo. I remember in one episode of Heartbreak he he appeared as the bad boy older brother of Dimitriades.

It looks exactly the same! I couldn't really get into the movie though unfortunately. I think if I saw this as a kid I would have enjoyed it. It had a great soundtrack and felt really 80's but it just didn't pull me in. I find it strange that this is an Australian movie and I have never heard of it. I used to frequent the video stores all the time. Never ever saw this on the shelves.

pity you didn't enjoy it bernie,nevermind it's not to everyone's taste,at least you got to listen to some cool tunes and it's another one you can cross of your list of home-grown movies!

picked up these 3 horror blu rays over the last month and a bit,i watched the monster club for the first time ever the other week and quite enjoyed it overall,i thought the blu ray transfer for what is a low budget 1981 horror looks spetacular,i mean seriously good.

i only paid 5 uk pounds for the monster club,i also picked up stuart gordon's the pit and the pendulum on blu ray as well stuart gordon's classic - reanimator in a steelbook which dropped down from close on 20 uk pounds to just over 7 uk pounds so i quickly snapped it up before it shot back up in price.

arrow certainly go to town on there packaging,they've got videodrome coming up soon in a swanky looking collectors edition.

eaten alive and madman are probably the next arrow releases i'll try to pick up when there released,going to rent videodrome just to see what it is like as it's has been years since i've watched it also society which i've not watched since it's original release.

need to check out mona lisa as well as i've never actually watched it and yet heard so many good things about it.

good to have you back johnny and hope you get well soon!

ordered this over the weekend - the last horror film starring joe spinell and caroline munro for £7.99 with free postage which i thought was a good deal,have it on dvd under the title of the fanatic and the picture quality is atrocious so looking forward to picking this up.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Aww, thank you guys.. you all make me feel welcome again ! [Smile]

Yeah, i have that Videodrome limited edition pre-ordered as well. It's probably my favorite Cronenberg movie.
I already have the Criterion dvd edtion, not the blu-ray.. so this will be the ideal opportunity to upgrade.

One thing that's pretty annoying though is the devaluation of the euro, which causes prices to rise sky-high.
Import dvd's and blu-rays from the US and the UK were never before so expensive. [Mad]

cool looking flicks johnny,i'm positive i've not seen either of them.


i've also got scream factory's from a whisper to a scream blu ray headed my way.

johnny have you had anymore scream factory discs since we last spoke,i want to upgrade to the class of 1984 blu ray they've released,also still haven't picked up deadly eyes yet.

johnny do you happen to have the bronson/lee marvin movie death hunt on blu ray from shout factory,if so i was just wondering what the release is like?
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Oh yeah, i've got a whole bunch of new Shout / Scream Factory releases from the last three months or so,
including From A Whisper To A Scream.

That probably didn't come as a surprise, now did it ? [Big Grin]

From A Whisper To A Scream is loaded, and i mean seriously LOADED, with extra goodies, including two feature-length
documentaries. Basically, it's worth (re-)purchasing this blu-ray for the extra's alone !
Director Jeff Burr seems very comfortable doing commentaries and interviews. He's a likable guy with lots of stories to tell.

There's a couple of Scream Factory releases i didn't buy (yet), which include the Ghoulies 1 + 2 double-feature
and Tobe Hooper's Invaders From Mars. That last one was also released in the UK last week, probably with
the same transfer, but with completely different extra's, so i need to do a little homework on that one i guess.

I also have a whole bunch of new stuff pre-ordered, including Scream Factory's upcoming Shocker, Nomads,
Metamorphosis / Beyond Darkness (double-feature), and a new movie called The Editor which will be released
on a combopack in september.
I'm also still waiting for I Madman and The Howling 2 (say what you want, but i love it).

Shout / Scream Factory discs hardly ever disappoint, and it's safe to re-purchase, even if you already have
a particular movie on dvd.

And yes, i also have Death Hunt laying around somewhere. It's one of Bronson's better, more adventurous movies,
in my opinion. I already had it on dvd from Anchor Bay Entertainment, but that disc was devoid of any
substantial extra's (besides a trailer). The blu-ray version has two commentary tracks, which i have yet to listen to..
but hey, that's beside the point. [Big Grin]

As far as the more recent releases go, they're still all factory-sealed here. I didn't really watch any movies lately,
so i've got a lot of catching up to do.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
What with scream factory,kino and olive releasing some pretty cool stuff plus uk labels arrow and 88 films it's hard to keep up,plus you need some really deep pockets as well!

I reckon there is at least 25 + blu rays that I would seriously like to grab at the moment but what I'm doing is looking at which 2 maybe 3 titles are going the cheapest that month and gradually trying to chip away at them.

From kino I wouldn't mind picking up - the first power starring Lou diamond Philips,also avenging force,running scared and the package.

Not purchased any of there releases yet but have heard that they are pretty good transfer wise.


Quite a few of my scream factory releases I have managed to pick up for under 10 UK pounds so far- terror train was pretty cheap as was - I come in peace with Dolph lundgren and also - the nest was under 10 pounds .
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Those Olive releases are seriously over-priced, in my opinion. I did get the recently released Thrashin' on blu-ray.
I would have been interested in Baby It's You and Street Smart as well, but they're just too expensive.
If they were fully loaded special editions, then maybe.. But for a bare-bones release it's a no go for me.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
i've got ticks,witchboard 2,night of the scarecrow and night of the demons 2 from olive films so far on blu,witchboard 2 has a few extras and i think night of the scarecrow has something or other but i have noticed the last couple of batches they've released are completely free of any extras.

i did fancy picking up ski school as i've never had the chance to watch it but no way am i paying 15 uk pounds for it,i agree there releases are way overpriced!
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
I actually do own that same batch of horror titles from Olive Films, but they were released before
the massive devaluation of the euro. Prices were completely different when those titles just came out.
The current price for an Olive blu-ray here is around 30 euro's (approx. 21 UK pounds), while an Arrow disc
from the UK costs around 25 euro's (somewhere between 17 and 18 UK pounds) when they have just been released.
Prices for UK import discs drop about 4 months after release date, while US imports always stay the same.

A couple of months ago i had a discussion about this with the guy who owns the shop where i buy most of my stuff,
and he told me prices for US imports went up about 20% within less than a year because of the euro's downfall.

Long live Europe ! ..sigh.. [Roll Eyes]

The Killing Edge from 1986

I bought this VHS tape from Salvation Army.

It has to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Apparently it's set in the not too distant future and it really gives you no indication of any significant background of why the guy is in this situation or why the world is like it is. Straight from the get go you can tell that the movie probably cost 10 bucks to make. The filming, the acting, the story and anything else you can think of is terrible.

Has anyone seen this?

If anyone wants the tape I will post for free anywhere in the world. I need to get the tape out of my house it's that bad. I thought the movie might be about a one out of ten but quickly realised that the movie was 100 times worse.

Any takers?

In my search for cheaper ways to obtain my beloved import dvd's and blu-ray, i happened to come across
a Dutch online store specialized in alternative music. Apparently they also carry UK dvd's and blu-rays..
and for far less money than where i usually buy my movies ! (sadly no US imports though)
So i decided to give this a try, and whadda ya know.. It worked !

The awesome Milano Calibro 9 on Arrow blu-ray + dvd combopack, Biggles on blu-ray, Trancers 2 on blu-ray,
the Australian Wyrmwood ; Road Of The Dead on blu-ray, and Lars Von Trier's 'art-house'/trash-fest Nymphomaniac
in its +5 hrs. long director's cut on a 2 disc blu-ray set.

Vigilante force is fun as well,also like Hooper a lot and sharky's machine,what's the transfer like on both Johnny and are warner's still distributing there discs in those eco cases I so despise?

Never seen Shamus,that's one Burt movie I need to check out and the scarecrow with Hackman and Pacino sounds ace,seen true confessions though and did not dislike that and the longest yard is a 70s classic!

Oh yes, the folks at Warner's are still trying to save the environment and make this world a better place.
I was fortunate enough to get two perfect copies without cracked cases or punctured / ripped sleeves, thank god !

By the way, the Wolfen blu-ray (from the Warner Archives Collection) is packaged in a regular case.

Both Hooper as well as Sharky's Machine got a 4 star rating for video-quality on Blu-ray.com.
They're indeed both good transfers, but to emphasize the difference between the two, i'd rate
Hooper slightly higher. Sharky's Machine looks extremely grainy in certain scenes. Maybe it's because
Sharky's Machine is fairly dark, while Hooper plays out mostly in broad daylight, i'm not really sure.

vigilante force director george armitage hasn't made many movies but the one's he has a few of them have been absolute crackers - grosse point blank,miami blues and to a lesser extent but still very entertaining - vigilante force.

but his last outing - the big bounce from 2004
seemed to recieve some pretty mixed reviews,based on an elmore leonard novel and starring morgan freeman,owen wilson,charlie sheen ,gary sinise amongst others it seems to have a pretty cool cast.

i've never seen it myself but do have it added to my rental list.

anyone out there ever checked this one out?

hooper is such a fun reynolds flick and i think burt definitely looks like he's having a lot more fun in this sort of role than in his later outings such as - rent a cop and heat.

sharky's machine is pretty great also!

i've always liked the 1986 burt reynolds action thriller heat a lot and think it to be one of burts more underatted movies of the 1980s and is certainly one that i wouldn't mind seeing hitting blu ray at some point.

i know heat comes with two completely different endings,in the european version which i have on vhs tape Peter McNicol's character dies at the end where as in the us version he survives.


 -

anyone seen jason statham's 2015 action drama - wild card which is based on the same william goldman story?


looking on imdb from burt 80s stuff there's a few i've still yet to see,i've never seen - paternity,best friends with goldie hawn,blake edwards - the man who loved women,stroker ace.

from the late 70s - semi tough and starting over are 2 i've still yet to see

i thought burt was really superb in bill forsyth's comedy breaking in and i think it's a really great little movie that deserves a lot more credit than what it gets!

picked up charlie's farm on blu ray yesterday which is an aussie outback horror in same vein as the friday the 13th's,texas chainsaw massacre series and features man mountain nathan jones (6 foot 11") who appeared not long back in mad max fury road and also stars tara reid of american pie fame.

enjoyable horror this which is a bit of a slow burner with not a lot really happening for the first hour or so but with it then seriously kicking into gear for the final 30 and featuring some outrageously gory kill scenes and many a suspenseful moment.

https://youtu.be/wjshevdOimI - charlie's farm trailer.

definitely worth checking out and one of my better blind buys of late!


 -


one thing i've just noticed is on the pic (above top) it states - 7 foot tall and 170lbs and then on the other posters it states 7 foot tall and 375lbs.

all i can think off is he must have slimmed down for the uk version [Big Grin]

i'll have to check my blu ray cover in a bit to see if it carries the same typing error.


 -


from the pound shop in my local town centre of canterbury i picked up this 2014 comedy - behaving badly on dvd which stars selena gomez,nat wolff,elisabeth shue,heather graham,dylan mcdermott,gary busey,cary elwes and mary louise parker.

for just 1 uk pound this was not to bad actually and even though it starts off pretty badly(first couple of minutes i thought oh no i've got me a stinker here) it soon quickly picks up and there's a good few funny moments through out and it also features a pretty cool soundtrack plus seeing elisabeth shue playing a cougar i think is worth the cheap purchase alone.

so it's far from perfect but for just 1 uk pound i can't complain!


also on order i have

double bill of 80s horror from scream factory - cellar dweller and catacombs,i know cellar dwellar is not one of the strongest releases from the empire pictures back catalogue but i've always had a bit off a soft spot for it and catacombs is one i've never had chance to check out so i'm looking forward to giving that one a view.


the thing i always noticed about vigilante force johnny was that in the states it was awarded just a pg rating where as here in the uk the theatrical rating was an - x certificate and that it was even banned in some countries.

Talk about extremes!


vigilante force Certification:

Australia:R / Finland:(Banned) / Iceland:16 / New Zealand:(Banned) / Norway:18 / Norway:16 (1978) / Sweden:(Banned) / UK:18 (cut) / UK:X (theatrical rating) (uncut) / USA:PG / West Germany:18

Out of Bounds (1986) on VHS with Anthony Michael Hall. I had never seen this one and thought it was decent. As soon as I saw him playing around with the knife
I was asking myself, how long into the movie it was going to be before he used it one someone - it's so pathetic and pretty bad when you see a country boy with assassin type skills with a knife for no apparent reason whatsoever other than to create some sort of narrative for a later scene.

picked up another double bill of horror from scream factory - the outing aka the lamp and the godsend.

the outing (the lamp) is a very cheesy but really fun 80s horror with some pretty cool effects,quite gory in parts as well,never seen - the godsend which was put out by cannon pictures in 1980 and i believe stars donald pleasance's daughter!

daryl hannah looked great in reckless,pity she didn't choose to age more gracefully as i'm sure she'd look a 100 times better than what she does now after numerous cosmetic procedures!

Bit of a mixed bunch but this is what I've picked up over the last couple of months,think there's a couple of titles I've missed but if I remember I'll take pics and add them.


Watched- into the grizzly maze the other night starring James Marsden,Thomas Jane,Scott glen and billy bob thorton and thought it was a lot of fun and if your fan of these man vs nature type of flicks obviously the classic jaws springs to mind and the likes of - ghost and the darkness,grizzly etc I think chances are you'd probably enjoy it!

Charlie's farm was a lot of fun as well and for a modern day slasher I'd say it's definitely a cut above and where as some of my blind buys don't work out so good this was one of the better ones in a while.


Also I've started putting most of my dvds, blu rays in these dust cover sleeves now,the only ones I can't get in them is the dvds with slipcases on or some of the bigger steel books,but there ever so cheap for the amount you get and at least protect your covers from dust and spills.

also just picked up 1985 comedy drama - fandango starring kevin costner and judd nelson,saw it going really cheap (just over 2 uk pounds for a new region 1 us import dvd) so i thought at that price even though i've never seen it before it it's well worth the gamble as i've heard some pretty good things about it and i'm pretty sure that chances are i will like it as i'm a big fan of both costner and judd nelson.

Some great pick ups johnny,I'd like to watch the howling 2 again,remember the last time I watched I was in tears of laughter at how completely bonkers it all was,also not seen nomads for a while so would like to check that out again.

Definitely like to pick up shocker,zone troopers is daft as anything but a lot of fun and vigilante force and defiance are pretty cool as well.

Never seen miracle mile or the editor and I'd definitely think I'd remember if I'd seen the two peekarama titles.


I've just picked up a couple of us imports,well there on there way to me as we speak.


 -


1980 horror the nesting on blu ray from blue underground which I picked up for just over 6 UK pounds


 -


Also from blue underground the excellent 1981 horror dead and buried on blu ray again just over 6 UK pounds.


 -


And lastly yet again from blue underground I picked up maniac cop 2 on blu ray for slightly more expensive than the other two this was just under 9 UK pounds.


A few blu rays i'm looking at picking up at some point when funds allow - I madman,deadly eyes,psycho 2 & 3,intruder,avenging force,revenge of the ninja,first power,body double,class of 1984,phantom of the opera,to live and die in l.a,death hunt,breakheart pass,dead heat,hooper,the package and running scared (1986).

Supercool stuff guys! I´m pretty sure my bro has ordered the Peekarama double too, He also got Fast Cars Fast Women/Starship Eros double a while ago.

Maniac Cop 2 is better than the original, i don´t have it and i want to see it again so badly.
Nomads is great, Miracle Mile is a classic (be sure u check it out, warrior) and Nightmare City is just hilarious. Never seen Zone Troopers or The Nesting

I think that i´m finally going to watch Dead & Buried this weekend.

Hiding out is a lot of fun,I liked the other Jon cryer film he done around the same time - Morgan Stewart's coming home, have you ever seen that one before terd?

if not I reckon you should track it down As i reckon chances are you would probably Like as it'pretty good fun,what's the in crowd like any good?
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
Agree Warrior, Hiding Out was a fun flick. My boy watched it with me and I heard him tell his mom that he loved it. Awesome. Noticed a goof in the fight scene at the end. I will turn it into the head honchos hopefully tonight to be posted on its goofs page.

Morgan Stewart is Coming home. I love that movie. I like it better than Hiding Out. I have a couple copies around here on VHS of course, 1 is still brand new and unopened.

Another movie that reminds me of Hiding Out is Plain Clothes. A cop goes undercover in a high school. The lead role is Arlyss Howard who went to high school right down the road from here. I might watch it tonight. Have you seen it Warrior?
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I've got plain clothes on blu ray,I like it but not sure whether I like it as much as hiding out,it's good fun though and we'll worth checking out.

I think I find Morgan stewart's coming home the funniest of the three,I only watched that for the first time this year as I picked up the us DVD and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it,I thought it was really good!

never seen fugitive mind atomik,I looked it up on imdb and see it's got heather lagenkamp in it as well,i think they need to give dudikoff's resue me (1992) with stephen dorff,ami dolez a proper DVD release as it's a really fun little movie.

I own midnight ride,chain of command,avenging force and bloody birthday in which he has a small role on DVD,American ninja 1&2 and bachelor party on blu ray
And also platoon leader on vhs.

Watched human shield and soldierboyz before and enjoyed them both,not seen many of his later 90s early 2000 outings but it looks like he's starting to make a bit of an acting comeback which is awesome!

I think it's only a small part but 1980s - the black marble interests me,it's got Judy landers in it as well as harry dean Stanton,have you ever seen it atomik?

Has it already been a month ? .. Apparently yes, it has.. so here we go again.

This morning two packages arrived at Roarke residence :

US imports include Savage Weekend (blu-ray), Malone (blu-ray), Cannibal Terror / Devil Hunter double-feature (blu-ray),
Turkey Shoot (blu-ray), Metamorphosis / Beyond Darkness double-feature (blu-ray), and The Hunger (blu-ray).

Also, as predictable as i may have become, another batch of Vinegar Syndrome discs,
including the wonderfully titled Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things (1971).
If the actual movie is only half as good as the title, it's still going to be a winner ! [Big Grin]

Metamorphosis and Beyond Darkness (as released by Scream Factory) are late 80's,
bottom-of-the-barrel Filmirage productions (which was Italian sleaze meister Joe D'Amato's production company).
In its synopsis for Beyond Darkness the sleeve says :
,..This tale of terror comes from Claudio Fragasso, the director of Troll 2, so you KNOW it's good !..'

Too funny ! [Big Grin]

UK imports include Lamberto Bava's A Blade In The Dark (blu-ray) and Blastfighter (blu-ray), Umberto Lenzi's Spasmo (blu-ray),
Arrow's combopack for La Grande Bouffe, and The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai across the 8th Dimension (blu-ray).

Also the second best movie ever made (after Blue Velvet) :

 -

Even though i already had the Criterion blu-ray from 2013, a dvd copy of this masterpiece was still missing from
my collection. UK company Eureka presents this as a combopack release in their Masters Of Cinema series.
It drops one of two commentary tracks from the Criterion version, but adds an interview with the director.
But more importantly, i finally have a dvd copy of one of my favorite movies of all time ! [Smile]

Johnny when you get chance will let us know what blade in the dark is like,I have actually watched it just the once way back but my memory of it is very fuzzy!

Malone is a really cool Reynolds flick,like to see savage weekend,the hunger and Turkey shoot are pretty great also.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Several of these titles i got today i already own on dvd, but upgraded now to blu-ray.
I always try to read as many reviews as i could find to help me decide if a certain movie is worth the upgrade.
In the case of A Blade In The Dark, this review made me decide to buy it again :
www.10kbullets.com/reviews/a/a-blade-in-the-dark-88-films-bluray/

I'll compare it to my old Anchor Bay dvd some time soon, and give my own opinion about the difference.

I haven't seen Malone since the early days of Dutch cable TV around 1990, so that would be fun to re-visit after 25 years.

Savage Weekend is new to me. I have never seen it, even though it's something that is right up my alley.
If the trailer is any indication, then this must be one seriously nasty sleaze fest ! [Big Grin]

Judge for yourself : www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibPlt2Xeb98
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
This morning i checked out several of my new discs, just to get an overall impression of what i bought.

Malone was the first disc i tested.. and i can happily assure you it's a winner !
The disc may be (close to) bare-bones, but the transfer is impressive.
I don't really mind the absence of noteworthy extra's as long as the transfer is good, and Malone certainly delivers !

Plus, it never hurts to see Cynthia Gibb in HD either ! [Big Grin]

I really hope Kino's upcoming Heart Of Midnight blu-ray has been treated
with a similarly respectful overhaul for its HD debut later this month.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
I did a comparison between my old Anchor Bay dvd of Lamberto Bava's A Blade In The Dark (released nearly 15 years ago)
and the recently released blu-ray version from UK's 88films.. and to be completely honest, i'm not impressed. [Frown]

The 10kbullets review claimed this as "another strong transfer that greatly improves upon all previous releases".
I thought its overall appearance was rather underwhelming, and even more worrisome : It runs almost 2 minutes shorter !

At this point i can't tell yet if anything's missing, but i'm certainly not pleased.

The major plus of the blu-ray is that it also includes the original Italian audio track which was absent on the dvd.
I checked several scenes, and it turns out they were clearly speaking Italian on set. Even though it's still dubbed,
this is definitely the better choice as it matches the actors lip-movements much much better.
Once the Italian audio is selected you do get stuck with unremovable English subtitles though.
All of the extra's are presented in 50hz, which might cause playback problems for people outside of Europe.

 -

I still like the movie, but in the end it wasn't worth the upgrade.. at least not to the 88films version.

i go on my wifes facebook account sometimes and
check up on the 88 films facebook page and can actually recollect a few people bringing up this issue of the lip sync being so way out on there blade in the dark release,i can't recollect any of them getting a reply from 88 films though.

so far from 88 films i've picked up - slaughterhouse,dead of winter,castle freak,the pit and the pendulum,two moon junction,trancers,
american ninja 1 and 2,the last horror film and puppet master.

great label releasing a lot of obscure titles that would otherwise probably not see the light of day,just got to keep a bit more of a check on there quality control with certain releases but saying that i've been generally very pleased with most of there releases so far!

coming soon johnny they have creepshow 2,the children of the corn 1-3,sleepaway camp 2 & 3 and drive-in massacre amongst others.

The end with burt reynolds and dom deluise,I always liked that one but have not seen it in a seriously long time,heated vengeance I have the old cbs fox UK video of that,I thought it weren't to bad overall and was pretty entertaining.

Never seen any of the walking tall films but would like to and doctors wife's sounds cool with crenna and Hackman in the cast and I just spotted George gaynes as well,sounds fun!

I didn't know that there were three parts to Walking Tall! I remember watching The End at my Aunt's house. We were at a party there, and the adults were all "partying" while I was in the family room watching tv. This movie cracked me up.

I've got an over the door metal coat hanger in my bedroom and have started to decorate it with a few movie fridge magnets of films that I like,there only a couple of UK pounds maximum and add to what would otherwise be a pretty dull feature!

Pics not that good as it's dark here now so I'm coping with just the room light so if your having any trouble making them out,so far I have - an American werewolf in London,class of 1984,slaughter high,cobra and Halloween 3 season of the witch.


 -


And a few blu rays/DVDs that I've picked up over the last 6 weeks or so,the DVDs for the 4 come to 10 UK pounds which is not bad at all and Scrooged was 5 UK pounds and 1941 on blu was only 4 pounds,so pretty good value there as well!


Also picked up a UK quad poster for psycho 3 which I have had delivered to me a few days back but am yet to check out so when I do I'll put up a PIC of that also.

I've always liked 1941 but I know it's not a film to everyone's taste,many critics thought it to be an overlong and noisy mess of a movie upon its release.

Each to there own I reckon!

Neighbors - 1981

I know that Belushi and Aykroyd purposely switched roles in order to (A) challenge themselves and (B) to avoid future typecasting but the movie would have been so much better if they didn't switch roles in my opinion.

Love the magnets Warrior! - Especially American Werewolf in London!

Yeah I think it's pretty decent Bernie it's a bit of a action thriller horror combo where a serial killer is executed via the gas chamber who then comes back from the dead possessing superhuman powers to exact revenge on the detective who put him there as played by lou diamond phillips.

The First Power is indeed good supernatural thriller. Don´t remember much from The Naked Face and the Spam Wars destroyed my comments.

I won´t, Bernie. I have both films on blu-ray but it´s gonna take a while to get there. Probably going to start with Fuzz (1972) [Smile]
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Atomik I reckon you would really dig both of those,the naked face I watched years back but can remember very little from,I've heard mixed things about it but I noticed it dropped by a few pounds in price so I thought what the hell and picked it up.

I caught some of cannonball run 2 on TV a few weeks ago bernie and as daft as it all was I couldn't stop laughing at parts of it,the sequel seems to receive quite a bit of stick but I've always found it to be pretty enjoyable.

They both come to blu ray in a few weeks time here in the UK - http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Cannonball-Run-Blu-ray/130238/

Never hear of Fuzz - perhaps worth a viewing?

Cannonball Run 2 is classic:

"This cat is dead.... get me a new cat".


Yesterday I picked up My Bodyguard (1980) and Bachelor Party (1984) for 5 bucks each.

Never seen the fuzz but it looks like pretty good fun,tom skeritt now there's an underrated actor as I don't think I've ever seen him give a dodgy performance.

I'll tell you a couple of Burt's I haven't seen for years - the rough cut,rent a cop,gator & white lightning,physical evidence,the end and sharky's machine.

There quite a few of Burt's I haven't yet seen - stroker ace,Shamus,best friends,paternity,the man who loved women,semi- tough,starting over,hustle,fuzz and 100 rifles.

Did anyone see Bachelor Party 2?
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
No i've never seen it Bernie and I think I'd approach it with extreme caution judging by some of the reviews.

I think the only connection with the original film is it shares the same writers but that aside it looks like just another one of these cheap in name only sequels.

Be funny if tom Hank's had a funny turn and said to his agents I don't want to do toy story 4 anymore or another da vinci code sequel,I want to do bachelor party 3 - the return of rick gassko or maybe the burbs 2 - the revenge of ray Peterson [Big Grin]

I love how coma patients are portrayed in movies. Like they wake up and then immediately start plotting vengeance. It just doesn't work that way.

Blood Bank starring Tom Hanks, in theatres this summer.


I picked up Aliens the other day. This movie is pretty bad compared with the original. It's not terrible but it really aint that great. I am glad that Paul Reiser got munched by an alien but I would have been much more satisfied if that happened within the first 5 minutes of the movie. He clearly is not a method actor unless the director said something like, "Paul, for every scene and every movie you do from now on I want you to try to summon your intensity by imagining that you are making toast in the kitchen while chatting casually to your wife".

On a more positive note I picked up Caddyshack 1 and 2 twin pack. A sequel that never fails to disappoint [Big Grin]

I thought I was the only one who felt like this!
 
Posted by Bernie_Lomax (Member # 8571) on :
 
I thought I would get slammed for saying this. Glad you agree Helen. The first one is a pretty great movie but this one is just plagued with bad acting, bad story and having the little girl (with the 200 IQ) in it was pathetic.

I think good directors know that more suspense = a better film so not seeing the alien that much is better than seeing aliens all over the place with millions of bullets flying all over the shop. Perhaps in Jaws it was unintentional but not seeing the shark much = more suspense which resulted in a better movie. You kinda have to refrain from giving the audience what they want cos once they get it they don't want it. For this movie they decided to do Alien on steroids and thought this would be grounds for a better film. I know it was a big hit but for me this movie fails miserably compared with the original (like most sequels I guess).

I always feel that Aliens dialogue in particular, is emblematic of the time in which it was made. Cameron loves his machismo and militaristic fetishism, but it's been copied so many times it just seems dated now. They're supposed to be elite marines, but they come across as a bunch of sloppy cowboys.

"She heard alien and she thought they meant illegal alien!"

Yeah Cameron, because hundreds of years in the future 'Hispanic' as a minority will really be a thing in the continental US.

Having said that; dated dialogue and bull**** machismo aside, it's still an entertaining action movie. It doesn't really live up to the hype though. But if it was viewed away from the 'stone-cold-classic' rhetoric, I think most people would enjoy it.

Day Of The Cobra (1980) directed by Enzo G Castellari

 -

Bloody Payroll (1976) directed by Mario Caiano

Chopper Squad (1975) directed by Sergio Martino

Short Night Of Glass Dolls (1971) directed by Aldo Lado

This is the brand new Camera Obscura 2-disc set, which comes with two commentaries (with optional English subtitles),
and a recently recorded 98 minute long Aldo Lado interview.. wow !

 -

Delirium (1972) directed by Renato Polselli

This is the German 2-disc set, limited to 1000 copies (and completely out-of-print), which has no less than
4 (radically different) versions of the movie, plus commentary and 30 more minutes of deleted footage !

Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
With at least 4 versions floating around it's hard to tell which one is considered to be the original.
The Anchor Bay dvd (which was later re-issued through Blue Underground) actually does have 2 versions as well.
With the Italian version running well over 100 minutes i think it's fair to assume it's the most complete version.

The movie itself.. well.. it's sleazy as hell.. That i can tell ! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I have the Anchor Bay version of Delirium, a completely nutty Polselli film like The Reincarnation of Isabel, and I'd always assumed that it was the longest uncut version. Sleazy doesn't even begin to describe Polselli's stuff. The films are way over the top, and Rita Calderoni is something else. [Smile]

Alone with her a voyeuristic thriller starring tom Hank's son Colin,got this for under 2 UK pounds,watched it quite some time back and think I remember it being decent,also in a 2 for 10 pounds deal I picked up - cold in July and - the guest on blu ray.


I also like coming of age flicks,i think that - paper towns looks pretty decent johnny.

Arthur was great. I wonder if its held up well after all these yrs. Pretty Poison? That's a new one to me.

High school USA is full of recognizable actors. That alone makes it fun to watch. I noticed also that the license plates are Missouri which is where I live so I am very curious as to where they filmed it.

Age isn't everything is actually a early 90s film. It looks like it is similar to Vice Versa and other switcheroo movies like that.


Just picked up Dragnet on VHS original release date and in great condition. Loved it back in the day.

Yes it is the AnchorBay 2002. Is it rare? I thought I was gonna get it for $2 but the lady gave it another look and asked if I would give $4. I thought it was worth more than that so I didn't hesitate with a "yes". Estate sales are great places to pick up collectables. Sometimes the houses smell though. I sometimes feel like Mrs Griswold when she opens the door to the tent at Kamp Komfort.

So an estate sale is a residence where the people who lived there died and someone steps in and does a garage sale of the house?

Thats a great film - the lighthorsemen,not seen it in a while though,just watched a clip of - the roly poly man and that looks like being another fun Aussie flick.

There's some really great Australian movies that don't get the attention they deserve,next one I want to check out is - the big steal (1990) where some lad takes this girl out he likes on a date in a dodgy old jaguar car he's just picked up,I like the look of that as it looks like being really good fun!

Bernie. Death isn't always the reason but it is is in somecases. SSometimes they are downsizing or maybe someone has to go into an assisted living situation. The sales last 2-4 days usually with the prices dropping to 50-66% off by the last day.

I have just received my last big package of the year, loaded with imports from the US as well as the UK.

I will report later with titles and details.. too busy unpacking now ! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
This last week I've ordered a few films (used the site sponsor link on each purchase bar one which i hope helps a little),I've actually spent some of my Christmas money in advance as each year my father gives me some money to spend,just got to hope now that he holds up his end of the bargain and that I don't end up with boxer shorts and socks instead otherwise i'm going to be out of pocket by a large chunk of change! [Big Grin]


 -


Been wanting to upgrade to blu from my cardboard snapcase dvd for - hard kill for ages but here in the UK it's only available as part of a boxset which contains a few titles I already own,the us import was quite expensive so I opted for the Australian import which was reasonably priced.


 -


also upgraded from my old DVD to blu ray for this underatted 1993 George A. Romero Stephen king adaption - the dark half from the awesome us label - scream factory. (I know I collect posters but this is just an image from the net,would like it though as I think it looks pretty cool!)


 -


Also on blu ray import from Australia is the enjoyable 1992 wesley snipes action flick - passenger 57,I only currently own this on vhs and as the blu ray was reasonably priced (same as hard to kill between 6- 7 UK pounds) I thought it was time to upgrade.


 -


On blu ray (us import-all regions) I have upgraded from my DVD copy of the excellent John carpenter Stephen king adaption of - Christine,I've heard it looks awesome on blu!


 -


Purchased a DVD copy of the 1986 renny Harlin movie - born American (or artic heat as it's known as here in the UK,I have the vhs) from a seller on eBay,not sure which international version it is but it's got the identical cover as this so if anyone can recognise the language I'd be grateful,luckily I've checked up and all versions come with an English audio track.


Got a couple of others but I'll put up pics later,none of these have arrived yet but when they do I'll put up proper cover pics of them.

Cheers Bernie I think your spot on buddy as I just found this full cover scan of it and when enlarged shows the French flag on the back of it,damn it I was hoping it was the finish version as its the only version in wide-screen,never mind I paid really cheap for it so I shouldn't be too fuzzy!

Here´s the finnish version with the original cover art: http://www.fast-rewind.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/2/9391.html#000000

http://www.huuto.net/kohteet/jaatava-polte-orenny-harlin-leikkaamaton-34315/387928711 - for some reason atomik when I went to register it would not recognise my uk postal code,pity as it seems to be at a pretty decent price - 6.50 Euros for the dvd + 7.95 or less Euros postage that's if I've read it correctly so when converted to UK pounds its just under 11 uk pounds which is a pretty good deal for a fairly rare film especially here in the UK.


I found this English review of the Finnish disc - http://www.bulletsnbabesdvd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=4506&view=next

Not all is lost though I'll just have to make do with the French full screen disc for now,i'm sure I'll survive [Big Grin]

Atomik how high is the cost of living in Finland,do you actually live in the helsinki area as a few years back I actually thought of taking my family on a trip there but was put off by what I'd read and had seen about the high costs of every day living,in the end I opted for Vienna Austria which also had a bit of a rep for being expensive but I found it to be way cheaper than my capital city of London.

I found this quite recent video on YouTube http://youtu.be/0WDjYtg7c1g and the prices do seem a bit scary but the guy is in a hotel so i'd imagine that they'd be higher but he is saying that they are about the same as the sort of prices that you'd expect to pay on the street.

Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Yeah, i'm very happy with my new dvds and blu-rays. What a way to end the year ! [Smile]

Nice sleeve designs on those Kino releases too !

It doesn't stop there though.. How about my latest Scream Factory purchases :

They were fast in shipping that Nightmares blu-ray. Official release date is december 22nd, but i already got it on saturday.
I've never actually seen the movie, so i'm excited to have it in my collection now !

I actually quite enjoyed nightmares,i'm looking at picking it up myself,never seen zombie high but I think atomik and some of the other guys and gals have though,women's prison massacre looks fun as well.

I'd like to pick up the scream double bill of - dungeonmaster and eliminators,never seen dungeonmaster but eliminators was a lot of fun!

Also like to upgrade from my mod DVD of - the fourth war to the new kino blu ray release and also pick up the UK blu's of - the last embrace,river's edge and cherry 2000.

Dungeonmaster (released in the UK as Ragewar) is apparently uncut (some brief nudity I think). It's massively cheesey but fun.

Is anyone else having massive issues trying to find out what features the Blu-Rays have? I tend to only purchase the Blu if it has something the DVD didn't, and then merge the packaging, but so many companies (Kino, Olive) don't list what features will be on the discs for lots of movies, which is infuriating!

I thought the guy probably had it wrong,as I noticed you do have the bargain food stores such as lidl and aldi and there prices are always reasonable,glancing at a map your quite some distance from helsinki then so if my thinking is correct you must live more towards the Lapland area up in the wilderness with all the bears and flying squirrels [Big Grin] .

Here In the UK atomik if you want to see a flying squirrel you have to pick one up and throw it!

Atomik have you ever seen one of these in the wilderness or are they quite rare in finland,they look so cool!

P's. Your definitely right about trying to keep up with all the new releases johnny that you want to pick up,especially the last few months they've really piled them on,I gradually just try and chip away at a few releases that I want at a time as it's not worth getting yourself in debt over I think!

Finland is such a long country north/south -wise so there´s no flying squirrels or reindeers where i live, maybe few bears (the normal ones) in the woods.

Logan is right that some companies like to hide the information about the extra features.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I think the worse scenario is when you purchase a release to then find out it's been cut for some reason or the other or it's a different version of the print than what your used to.

Bit like my blu ray of van damme's a.w.o.l which i picked up that had numerous scenes missing throughout -
http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=32226 ,gotta say i was pretty annoyed at the time.

Nice list! I do check some of those sites sometimes. Not Facebook though - never that!

I don't get why though - sometimes a few features can be a strong selling point.

Music they do that with a lot. Companies often sneak out releases and don't mention the music has been altered. I think they did that with the release of 'Baby It's You' which actually put me off buying it.

Johnny have you watched blood rage yet? As it's picking up some really favourable reviews,if you get chance if you could let us know what it is like as I'm pretty tempted into picking up a copy!


Here's some of the blu ray's DVDs that I've picked up over the last month -

 -


Us blu ray of the 1993 George A.romero horror - the dark half which is based on the novel by Stephen king,Australian blu ray's of - passenger 57 with Wesley snipes and steven seagal's fun 1990 actioner - hard to kill,also an oz DVD of the Patrick Dempsey,Jennifer connelly drama - some girls aka sisters from 1988,a cheap UK DVD of - the crossing (1990) starring Russell crowe and also a UK blu ray edition of the Rutger hauer action thriller - split second (1992).


 -


Also I purchased as presents for the other half the 1st season of - robin of Sherwood starring Michael praed on blu ray and spy starring Melissa mcCarthy,Jude law and Jason statham.

Also I received as presents- mad Max fury road (which I watched at the theatres earlier in the year) and the latest terminator which I have yet to see.


Lastly in poundland yesterday I picked up this romantic comedy -


 -

From 2013 - just one day aka At middleton starring Andy Garcia,vera farmiga and the great tom skerritt,never seen it before but its got a great cast and at just 1 pound I think we'll worth the gamble!

Warrior, get it as soon as possible !

If the limited edition goes out-of-print it will be replaced by a regular combopack, and you'd be missing out on
the second blu-ray disc included in this package which has the Nightmare At Shadow Woods cut plus the composite edit.

So it's definitely worth to pick up the L.E. while it's still available !

Biloxi blues is a lot of fun terd,some girls I first saw when it was originally released,couldn't remember much from it and can't find it for rental anywhere so I thought I'd pick it up cheap on DVD as I adore Jennifer connelly and also think Dempsey is a lot of fun,I think it's a bit of an odd and slow affair but I think I do vaguely remember quite liking it!

Just reading about - boyhood what I picked up cheap in the sales and from I've read so far it sounds like a 3 hour (well not quite 3hr - 165 minutes in total) snoozefest!

I know it took 12 years to make but does it also feel like it takes 12 years to watch - Anyone checked this one out yet?

Just picked up Wall Street on Blu-ray for $3, and I rolled the dice on V I Warshowski (sp?)...a Blu-ray that didn't identify the date on the back...I thought it was from the 80's and for $3 was willing to chance it. DANG IT!!! It's 1992! Thus, cannot stay in my collection! I'm a rare breed of cell phone haters who only carries a flip phone form work....but times like these I wish I had a fancy phone with data to check these things out! Oh well...

Still never seen - wall street after all this time,I need to check it out,I've seen - Tommy boy and - black sheep starring Chris Farley and they were both good fun but have never seen - be very hills ninja before!


I picked up a couple more movie fridge magnets -

The sleepaway camp and - chopping mall,also got - first blood and - the warriors and stripped the magnet of the back and stuck them to the side of my DVD shelf below -

This is something I picked up for my son (8yrs old) the other day,its not a movie but -


 -

A marvels comic book on how to draw all the different characters,this first issue was only 99 pence so really good value!

Cool magnets Warrior. Is this a series, or only come with DVDs? I've got home made jobbies...my wife has some graphic design background, so basically prints any image I want and turns them into magnets (you can get magnets at the dollar store with a sticky side, so you just stick the pics on them). I've got an entire fridge full in addition to my file cabinet at work...tons of images from the 70's and 80's...entertainment for my mind!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Yeah kevdug I just pick up the odd one every now and then from eBay,there not overly expensive but make for a pretty cool decoration,I always like looking at the artwork on my DVDs/blu rays but as some of my shelving is not very deep I can't have much in the way of front facing artwork and only get to view the spines of the cases so at least this way I can see some of my favourite cover art even if it is in a much smaller format!

That's cool that your wife can make up the magnets for you and that your not limited in your choice!

Out of Season (1975), Bird (1988), The Richard Pryor Show collection (1977), the original Tinker Tailor Soildier Spy series (1979) and sex comedy Come to My Bedside (1975).

Picked up a couple of horrors - the butterfly room,the taking aka the taking of Deborah logan,my wife purchased a blu ray of - the visit the other day while out doing the weekly food shopping,I also picked up a new Michael Douglas thriller - beyond the reach and also a revenge thriller - bound to vengeance.

The taking ,butterfly room and beyond the reach were only £3 pounds each,bound to vengeance was £5 so not bad value overall,the only one I've checked out so far is - the taking which I thought was pretty decent!

Just got To Live And Die In LA and The Man From Snowy River on Blu-ray. Don't remember too much about them (I recall liking Snowy River as a kid), but willing to take a gamble at $5 each....
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
To live and die in LA I think is a great film and on blu as well for 5 dollars is a steal!

To Live and Die in LA is a classic and i also like The Man from Snowy River very much.

Thanks for the feedback guys...I'll put these on the radar to watch sooner than later...$10 bucks well spent it seems!

I picked up a double DVD at the dollar store tonight- Russkies and End of the Line. I had heard of Russkies, but not End of the Line, which has a lot of good actors : Kevin Bacon, Wilford Brimley, Mary Steenbergen, Levon Helm. Another rainy/snowy day movie set for me.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Great pick ups there,48 hours and planes trains are both awesome,been wanting to watch russkies for ages,end of the line sounds interesting I'm going to look it up in a minute to see if its the one I'm thinking of!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Pitts that end of the line/russkies double pack is an out of print title,it goes for about 23 (32 us dollars) UK pounds over here to import it,a really great find especially if it was for a dollar!

Omg I might have to list it on eBay! I'll check on it first. Thanks for the heads up!
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
It sells for around $7-$10 USD here. I don't think it's worth it to list it, unless I get some more copies.

I'd keep it pitts if its a pair of good fims,saying that if you can find a few more copies floating around at your local dollar store it would be worth picking them up and selling them on ebay.

I'm eyeing up some $8-$10 Blu-rays...I can swing two for now....here are my options, so open to feedback re: which two to grab: The Thing, Beverly Hills Cop, Project X, Bachelor Party, Escape From Alcatraz, Witness, Osterman Weekend, Firestarter, and the Pick-Up Artist.

Sadly, I own all these on DVD but my collector instinct now has me searching out Blu-rays. I'm really leaning towards The Thing, but not sure about my second choice...
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
Young warrior, thank you so much! I am headed out tomorrow to hit all of the Dollar Tree stores in my area. I'm going to look into selling on Amazon!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Bachelor party I reckon as a second choice kevdug,one horror - the thing - one comedy - the bachelor party = the perfect mix!


Pitts if you happen to find loads of copies of - russkies/end of the line and you get some funny looks when you take them all to the counter just say your a really big fan of Kevin bacon and that you love his porn stache in his latest movie - cop car [Big Grin]

Great pick ups johnny - up the creek is good fun,would like to get the blu of that myself,never seen - highway to hell you'll have to let us know what that is like as I've always been curious about that one,- farmers daughters looks like good trasy fun and I've got - hellraiser on the old UK anchorbay blu ray release and the 3rd part on DVD,not got part 2 - hellbound so the boxset wouldn't be a bad bet for me to get either!
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
The regular edition of Arrow's Hellraiser box still looks pretty stylish, even though the 200 page hardcover book
which was included in the limited edition is absent.. Oh well, the main reason why i wanted this box,
was because of the new restored transfers.. so i'm happy now ! [Smile]

There's more :

 -  -

Spellbinder (1988) and Ghost Story (1981), both on blu-ray.

Ghost Story is the UK version released by Second Sight Films, which seems to be identical to the Scream Factory disc.

A couple of oddities :

 -  -

Catch My Soul (1974) on a blu-ray + dvd combopack (released by Vinegar Syndrome's sub-label Etiquette Pictures),
and Boarding House (1982), one of the earliest shot-on-video slasher movies, on a new special edition 2 dvd set,
including the rare director's cut with a running time of 157 minutes (!).. Now that's some serious torture ! [Big Grin]

I actually watched my old region 4 DVD copy of - spellbinder last night (along with -the zero boys and the will ferrell comedy - get hard,i had a bit of a late night [Big Grin] ) johnny,it's a great little occult flick with A very hot looking Kelly preston,my DVD is full frame so its one I'm definitely going to upgrade soon.

I spotted a goof as well in - spellbinder which I can't see listed anywhere - in the shopping mall scene at the beginning there's a guy chasing after Kelly preston and he pushes past this woman with a pram that is meant to contain a baby and you can blatantly see that it's a children's doll inside of it!

Ghost story is a really good watch as well,I have a region 1 DVD of that and it is another one I wouldn't mind upgrading also!

Unfortunately, I was unable to get anymore copies of the Russkies/ End of the Line DVD. Last week, I went to three dollar stores, two of which are in not so savory neighborhoods. We had to go to Radio Shack for a battery for my husband's edging machine, and the only Radio Scrap near us (that is how my husband refers to it) is in a ghetto-y neighborhood. So we hit the dollar stores in those areas too. I'll try again next time I am out shopping. Who knows, maybe they'll put more out at our little dollar store.

Pity you couldn't find any more copies Pitts,at least you managed to find a copy for yourself to check out,have you watched either yet and if so - any good?

This is what I picked up over about the last month or so - like father like son, the bride and dead end all on dvd,van damme double pack of the order and nowhere to run, adventures of ford fairlaine and scarecrows on blu ray.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
The Bride is still missing from my 80's horror collection..

Here's two more imports from my january package :

 -  -

I took a quick peek to get an impression of the video-quality, and i can confirm both are a huge upgrade
over their old dvd editions (from MGM and Troma respectively).. plus now i have Swordkill too ! [Smile]

Ghost Warrior will forever be known to me as Swordkill, and i have to say that the guy who plays samurai Yoshi
does a damn fine job here.. seriously. It would have been easy to put some funny scenes in the movie exploiting
the culture clash, but i'm happy they didn't go that route. He plays it straight throughout, and that decision
causes an extra layer of dramatic effect to the character and the movie in general. Good stuff !

Here's my UK vhs of - swordkill johnny,it's a ex rental and the picture is a bit hit and miss in places,also it's cut by 27 seconds so i'll definitely look at upgrading it as it's certainly a fun little samurai flick and your right about the main lead as he absolutely nailed his role!

Swordkill was released by entertainment in video here in the UK, this was there logo at the time - https://youtu.be/IGF9SZV2VDM

I picked up Runaway Train with Rebecca Demornay and jon Voight. Not sure I would have bought it but the description on the back bragged it up bigtime so for $1 thought I would give it a go.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Runaway Train is a classic !

Perhaps one of the best action movies of the decade, and possibly THE best from The Cannon Group !
The whole cast is excellent. Eric Roberts was even nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and rightfully so !

Scarecrows is a really decent low budget horror with a creepy atmosphere and some rather bloody kills,well worth checking out and like johnny mentioned - runaway train is seriously great and for just a dollar its a bargain and a half - well worth it!

I second that on - black rain as that also is a really great film,a few bucks as well you guys are really striking it lucky with some great buys of late!

Nice scoop cindy! Neighbors and Jumpin' Jack Flash stand out for me...two movies I re-call images of as a kid, but don't know if I've ever seen them. Wasn't Neighbors quite hard to find on DVD?
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :

Maid to order is a really great find Cindy as not only is it a fun comedy but it was discontinued by the studio quite some time ago,the region 1 DVD copy sales for about 60 UK pounds over here which roughly converts to about 85 us dollars and used copies go for about 30 UK pounds upwards (42 dollars) so it's most definitely one that's gone out of print!

Never seen - chances are,continental divide,white palace,the wizard or the tempest,but have seen all the other's and they are a lot of fun,I absolutely love - jack's back it's another one that I own the poster to (below).

Kevdug you know you said about how awesome the voice over guy sounded in the - 52 pick up trailer check out this guy for the - jack's back trailer
https://youtu.be/IGMeFCooSUg - as he sounds like he's actually living it!

Always liked James spader - tuff turf,the new kids,bad influence,the Rachel papers etc he's appeared in some really entertaining movies over the years!

Lots of stuff has been sent early. For example, all Scream Factory and Vinegar Syndrome releases with
a february 23rd street date are already here !

Of course the Arrow label is well represented too, including my first Arrow US release (Pray For Death),

I've seen - the mutilator atomik way back on a low budget DVD label I think it was vipco and the picture quality was awful but do remember quite enjoying the fim,also seen - deep red way back but have never seen - blood rage, I bet they look great on there arrow blu's!


Here's a couple I've picked up lately -


 -

Mimic and resident evil - retribution was a late valentines present for the other half who's a big fan of both movies and for myself I picked up - distant thunder and - show of force double DVD and - my science project on a cheap blu ray.

My new Scream Factory releases :

I have to admit i was slightly disappointed by the Jack's Back transfer, and the Bill Pullman commentary on the
Serpent And The Rainbow disc is a joke. I mean, the guy walks out of the recording session around the 53 minute mark !
Some people (like myself) may consider that to be an insult.. Nice one, Bill ! [Mad]

On the plus side : The transfers for The Curse (part 1) and R.O.T.O.R. are spectacular, for better or worse.
 
Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
What´s wrong with Bill, what a lousy thing to do. Did he sound frustrated or something like that?

The Curse films are interesting. The first one´s directed by David Keith and the second one stars Jill Schoelen.

Absolutely, yes ! [Smile]

The only one i'm familiar with is The Witch Who Came From The Sea, which was released on region 1 dvd in 2004
by the short-lived Subversive Cinema label.

Who'd ever thought something like Malatesta's Carnival Of Blood would make it onto blu-ray.. loaded with extra's ?!!

I can't wait to find out what titles will be released in subsequent American Horror Project box-sets,
as this appears to be the first of an on-going series.

Speaking of regional drive-in obscurities.. I think this one fits into that category quite nicely as well :

 -

Previously released by Something Weird Video, although not as a double-feature with one another,
(Kidnapped Coed was paired up with Hitch Hike To Hell, 1977 on that release), i couldn't resist upgrading
to blu-ray, simply because of the massive amount of extra's, and even a soundtrack CD.. It's insane ! [Big Grin]

I believe that War Bus Commando is one of the many titles for the ´89 sequel Afganistan - The Last Warbus.
I love the original but while the sequel has few cool moments, overall it´s pretty lame.

After Hours is a classic!

It's by no means a bad transfer, but considering it got a four star rating on Blu-ray.com i was expecting.. more, i guess.
The darker scenes actually do look quite good, but it's the daylight scenes that failed to impress
(which is odd, 'cause usually it's the other way around).
Colours seem slightly off, a little washed-out perhaps (and not in the "intended-that-way" kind of look).

On the plus side, there's a featurette that includes a new interview with Cynthia Gibb. [Smile]

I also got 88Films' Children Of The Corn trilogy on blu-ray :

 -

Pretty cool little box-set, even though the extra's from Anchor Bay's 20th Anniversary DiviMax edition
have not been carried over. However, there is a feature-length documentary about producer Donald Borchers.
I skipped through it a bit, and i noticed there's a lot of coverage on Angel (1984) to be found here as well.

When it comes to Italian horror / exploitation, the Camera Obscura label is in a league of their own !

Posted by aTomiK (Member # 6575) on :
 
Nice, a bit on the expensive side aren´t they?
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Yeah, i know.. Usually i pay around 30 euro's for the dvd editions, and 34 for the blu-rays.

But believe it or not, that's about the same as the releases from several of the US labels cost here,
so i've grown accustomed to spending that much money on certain releases. [Roll Eyes]

On the plusside, Camera Obscura never fails to impress. They're still digging up the most obscure Italian movies
that i've never even heard of (like this last one), and give them the royal treatment.
Top-notch transfers, excellent bonus content, original artwork design, and full English-friendly discs !

I believe each release is limited to 2000 pcs. , and thus far i've managed to get them all..
and i have to say i consider each and every one of them to be among the very best my collection has to offer.

As a fan of Italian horror and exploitation, i feel obliged to give them my utmost support !
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Some of these releases of late - scream factory,olive,kino etc I've been holding back on as the prices have really crept up,been buying a lot of films still but if I can spot a couple of older catalogue titles for a fraction of the price I'll always opt for them!

So many blu ray titles especially from scream factory I'd like to pick up - nightmares,jack's back,eliminators/dungeon master,class of 1984,I madman,body bags ,the guardian,prison,pumpkinhead 1 & 2,ghost warrior/house where evil dwells,psycho 2,invaders from Mars,the sentinel,stigmata,demon knight & bordello of blood etc etc the list goes on and that's even before I look at what some of the other labels are releasing.

Both kino and olive have got a lot of stuff I want to pick up but when some of these movies are getting up to the 15 UK pounds + mark I'm starting to hold off and then just praying that at some point they drop in price!

I picked up a couple more fridge magnets and have stuck them (took the magnet of first of cause) to the side of one of my DVD shelfs,I got - every which way but loose and - death wish.

I've got that exact same - street hero DVD atomik,real fun flick with a great soundtrack,blood tracks I've never seen but can remember it well in the video shops, I've got quite a few Australian DVDs now - streets of gold,street hero,some girls,spellbinder,the crush are a few that I have spotted and - black rain,hard to kill,pet sematary, piranha,passenger 57 amongst the blu rays.


There's a few titles available in Oz that have limited or no availability elsewhere!

I know which Aussie flick I want to get hold off next and that is the 90s comedy - the big steal as I do like the look of that!

Also in this last month i've picked up a record player,I got this audio technica deck,it's only a entry level model but it does me fine,sound is pretty decent as well,it was under £100 so not bad value at all.

I've got it connected via phono to my av receiver so it was simple connection,so basically I had the amp & speakers already and it was good to go straight out the box!


 -


So I've been hitting the 99p - 1.99 bargains on eBay,here's some that I've got - Cutting Crew - Life In A Dangerous Time,Belinda Carlisle bundle - Heaven Is A place On Earth,I Get Week,Circle in the sand,also got Berlin - Like Flames and the Gregg Tripp song - I Don't Want To Live without You from the movie Kuffs.

Ha ha...funny enough...I've never even seen the movie...and I already had a copy on DVD. I've reached that point in my collection that it is rare to find an 80's movie in stores I don't already have on DVD, so have moved on to primarily Blu-ray purchases...again, 80's only. Also rarely find 80's blu-rays in the stores as well, so...there it was...Howard The Duck....an 80's movie on Blu-ray. Even walked by it a few times...tried some self talk....but came home with the darn thing. *Don't regret it for a second!! [Confused] [Eek!] [Roll Eyes]

Guys and gals, this thread appears to be about movies of all decades now. Unless there's any objections, I'm going to move it to the Social Club board.

If it stays here, it'll need to remain 80s focussed...
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
After hours is good fun Terd and i personally really enjoyed it but it's a difficult one to recommend as I can't see the dark comedy and situations it features being to absolutely everyone's taste!

But yeah I'd say give it a go,I really dug it as I think did most people on these boards!

I know Howard The Duck takes quite a bashing on here but when I watched it a while back I must admit to quite enjoying it as did my 8 year old son at the time who was laughing his head off at it!


 -


I really don't think it's that bad and if you compare it to other family film flops of the time like Leonard Part 6 then by comparison it's masterpiece!

OK that's not a very good comparison as Leonard Part 6 probably would make any other movie look like a work of art [Big Grin]

Kevdug if you ever see a blu ray of Leonard Part 6 up on the shelfs just keep walking on by,don't stop,don't even think just do the right thing and keep on walking that's if you care for your sanity!

Paul...are you able to change the title of this thread to "Last 80's Movie You Purchased"? The other threads note the decade in the title....this one say "Last Movie You Purchased" I don't think there's one in the 70's forum either...which I can start one! *I'd prefer this thread stay put...and am fine with only listing my 80's gems! Of course...I only buy 80's movies...so may be easier for me!
 
Posted by kevdugp73 (Member # 5978) on :
 
Warrior...I could very well struggle with leaving Leonard 6 on the shelf! The collector gene in me "makes" me buy any movie from the 80's...good or bad...it's a sickness!
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
I have a suggestion on these 1 star movies like H Duck and Leonard Part 6(Ill take your word for it Warrior on Leonard part 6 being bad, I have seen it but it was forever ago and remember nothing about it) . I would ask the store how long it has been in stock and when they notice it has been in their store for 10 years maybe they will just give it to you. [Big Grin]

I know what you mean kevdug, about buying a movie good or bad just cause its 80s. I am the same way only its VHS. I blame it on my fellow Rewinders.
 
Posted by P_a_u_l (Member # 1022) on :
 
I've decided to move it, because it's full of loads of decades anyway.

Kevdug73, I'll close the one you created in the 70s board, may as well keep it all here.

3 Blu-rays for a staggering $10 bucks in total! :

A Passage To India: looks pretty slow and boring...but willing to possibly give it a try...or should I...

The Princess Bride: shamefully, I,ve never seen this, and am not really drawn to it...but it,s an 80,s movie!

Labyrinth: I believe I,ve seen this as a kid, but don,t remember too much about it. Homage to Mr. Bowie regardless.

Labyrinth is really well made kevdug and pretty good fun,I've never seen Princess Bride but have heard numerous good things about it over the years,not sure I could manage A Passage To India unless I was suffering from insomnia and was looking for something to help me sleep!

Though in all truth I have heard that it also is a very well made movie!

I've just picked up my first vhs in an absolute age and that is the 1986 Michael Pare action cheesfest Marine Issue which also stars Tawny Kitaen and Charles Napier.

I have watched it before but it's another one that I remember very little from!

Picked up a handful of movies this weekend.

On Blu-ray: Stand By Me, The Blues Brothers, and Galaxina/The Crater Lake Monster (Double Feature).

On DVD: Solarbabies (1986). Actually never heard of this one, but has a young Jami Gertz and Jason Patrick. It's a futuristic movie and looks like on the cover that they are playing...SPACE HOCKEY!!?? For that reason alone, I'm thinking this won't be a classic...but had to give it a try for $2.99!
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Love Stand By Me and The Blues Brothers, never seen any of the others but I love Jami Gertz and I think that Solarbabies was not long before The Lost Boys at time when she was looking seriously great!

2 dollars 99 as well I think you can't go far wrong!

Passage To India is one you need to watch when you have a whole afternoon with nothing else to do. It's a great movie that you need to watch in a single session, and is slow but intense.

Princess Bride - shame on you, watch it. Watch it now!!!

Labyrinth is cool for much more than Bowie.

My purchases today: Firefly, Extant season one, and Barbarella...
 
Posted by kevdugp73 (Member # 5978) on :
 
Thanks Paul. I might just watch Passage To India when I retire...so...15 more years or so! I will definitely put Princess Bride on the radar...I'm afraid that because I didn't see this as a kid, it may not wow me...but I'll try!

Got a blu ray coming of Francis Ford Coppola's excellent 1983 drama Rumble fish featuring an all star cast including Matt Dillon,Mickey Rourke,Diane Lane and the late Chris Penn.


 -


Also picked up on DVD (made on demand disc - DVD-R) the low budget 1985 cheesy horror movie The Falling which also goes under the alternate titles of Alien Predators and here in the uk where it was known as Mutant 2 which was just to cash in on the successful Wings Hauser,Bo Hopkins original Mutant aka Night Shadows that the same company had released one year prior!

The Falling is one film i´ve wanted to see for a long time. Deran Sarafian did few interesting low-budget films back in the late 80s-early 90s.
I especially like the vampire flick To Die For.

Lots of very cool new stuff, including these awesome Vinegar Syndrome releases :

 -  -

Pigs (1973) on a fully loaded blu-ray + dvd combopack, and the adult classic Sex World (1978) on blu-ray.

 -  -

Roger Watkins' Corruption (1983) on a blu-ray + dvd combopack (with the complete Last House On Dead End Street
included as an easter egg), and Blue Ice (1985) also on a blu-ray + dvd combopack.

Another batch of Vinegar Syndrome titles is coming april 26th !

I also got this :

 -

Over 2 hours of vintage Hong Kong martial-arts trailers from the 1972 - 1983 period, including the mind-boggling
Chinese Kung Fu Against Godfather (1974) which was shot right here in Holland, of all places !

And i'm very glad that i did !

This may very well be the most impressive transfer of this type of movie i have ever seen. It's beyond spectacular !
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I got the DVD version of Murders in the Rue Morgue years ago. Despite it's weak reputation, I've always really liked it. It is colorful, has a great cast, and is well directed by Gordon Hessler. It was a revelation to see the completely restored version, un-messed-with by AIP. It made me like the film even more. While it may seem old school, it's quite original in style and plotting. I'm sure that it looks terrific on Bluray.

I like The Dunwich Horror horror too. While it is a product of its time and is a little dated, I think that it's a fine adaptation of Lovecraft.

As for Pieces...ROFL. I first saw it in a downtown Philadelphia grindhouse way back when. I chuckled a lot because of the anachronisms--I think that there is a touch-tone phone in the flashback sequence--and the overriding way-out-there nastiness of the whole enterprise. (The murder of the girl in the locker room, in particular, is just so mean spirited.) It's one of those enjoyable exploitation films where you just scratch your head in disbelief because it's both inspired and stupid, sometimes in the same scene. I'm glad that someone did the transfer justice.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Grindhouse Releasing definitely pulled out all the stops for this one..
Believe it or not, but this new Pieces edition even comes with a soundtrack CD !

Funny thing about Murders In The Rue Morgue : I received this new blu-ray edition along with
Hessler's Rage Of Honor (the Arrow release from the US).. Talk about how diverse a career can get ! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
By the way, i also bought Miller's Crossing (1990) and Barton Fink (1991) recently..
and decided it was time to catch up with more recent stuff from the Coen brothers,
so i got No Country For Old Men (2007) and True Grit (2010) as well.

All four are Dutch blu-ray editions, but they're most likely identical to their US and UK counterparts.

I'm especially happy with Barton Fink.. i like that one ! [Smile]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing are probably my two favorite Coen brothers films. They're both great. [Smile]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Hessler did have a diverse career: some quite good horror films, such as The Oblong Box, Cry of the Banshee, Scream and Scream Again, and Murders in the Rue Morgue (most written or co-written by the great Christopher Wicking); fantasy--The Golden Voyage of Sinbad; the Sho Kosugi stuff; Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park; and lots and lots of TV epsiodes. He's one of those guys who always did a pro job but never really got the credit he deserved.

That's a bit of a coincidence as I've just been sent Rage Of Honor on Blu Ray along with Child 44 from my online rental service,watched Rage of Honor and while it was nowhere near the standards of Revenge Of The Ninja or if memory serves me right Pray For Death it was still action packed and quite good fun!

Not watched Child 44 yet so if anyone has already checked this one out and can give me a heads up on what it is like I would be grateful.


 -

If you are a fan of Sho Kosugi's Rage Of Honor steer clear of the UK 101 Films blu ray release what i watched and do what Johnny Roarke has done and opt for the US Arrrow Films release,main reason being 101 Films has been supplied a 4.3 HD print by MGM and you can see above from my TV how it displays (you could zoom the picture out but it doesn't do the picture quality any Favour's) plus the Arrow release is stacked with extras whilst the 101Films release only comes with the films trailer!

The Falling I haven't watched for ages,last time I watched it was the old UK VHS rental version from Entertainment In Video under the title of Mutant 2 though there's no connection between this and the 1984 Wings Hauser,Bo Hopkins original.


 -
Front cover with pretty cool retro type artwork!

Do remember it being pretty low budget and in all truth not a great movie but there was definitely something about it I liked hence the revisit all these years later!

I'll watch it again soon and let you know my feelings about it now!

Woohoo.. just received my monthly dose of imports, both US and UK ! [Big Grin]

Still busy unpacking here, but all the usual suspects are present !
(which basically means the latest Vinegar Syndrome, Arrow, and Shout Factory releases).

From Arrow : Bride Of Re-Animator, the limited 3-disc edition (already mentioned by Young Warrior),
The Zero Boys (blu-ray + dvd combopack), and this lovely Luciano Ercoli box-set :

 -

More UK imports include :

 -  -  -

Ken Russell's Valentino (1977), José Ramón Larraz' Symptoms (1974), and Nicolas Roeg's Eureka (1983),
all on blu-ray + dvd combopacks and seriously loaded with extra's !

More to follow...
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Great choices! I especially like Larraz's Symptoms, which I saw a few years ago. It had been on the British Film Institute's lost/most wanted films list for years. It's excellent. I also like Nic Roeg's Eureka, which had also been hard to see for a long time. Gene Hackman is terrific in it, and you'll be quoting his catch phrase forever. ("I never made a nickel off another man's sweat.") The Death Walks Twice box is cool, and Valentino is a typically zany Ken Russell art film.

You have some fun viewing ahead of you, dude.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Great pick ups johnny,still not checked out my Bride Of Reanimator but will do soon,always enjoyed The Zero Boys which is a blast!

Eureka sounds good with that cast and Hackman seriously is a great actor,never seen Valentino,in fact I've not seen many Ken Russell movies apart from 1991s Whore and the pretty awesome Crimes Of Passion starring Anthony Perkins & Kathleen Turner which also comes to Blu soon!

My two latest pick ups which couldn't be more different if they tried and that is Cronenberg's terrific Videodrome on Blu Ray and the romantic comedy Mr Wonderful starring Matt Dillon and Annabella Sciorra.

Annabella Sciorra seemed to be in a lot of romantic comedies around the same time. She was kind of like a b-grade Meg Ryan. I always liked her. Haven't seen Mr Wonderful since it came out, but I recall quite liking it, same with 'The Night We Never Met'.

The cover of Body Melt looks like how I feel.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Not a big fan of the snapper case but I still think the worse dvd/blu ray case design is the eco case with the big holes punched through them,they offer next to no protection whatsoever and are simply pathetic!


Never seen The Night We Never Met but it looks good fun,i'm sure I've had that added to my on line rental list for years now but never been sent it!

Not sure if it's a pretty rare title?


Great pick ups there atomik,I see you got Everly which I enjoyed when I watched it,it has got a few faults but overall it's a fun watch!

I think it might be a rare title. I had to pick it up for quite a bit a couple of years ago - but it's well worth tracking down if you can.

Not actually purchased, more given....

The Martian (bluray)
Arsenic and Old Lace
Dune
Footloose (the original and best)
Supergirl (the movie)
1941
The Dr Goldfoot collection (includes Dr Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine, Dr Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs, and Jules Verne's Master Of The World - all starring the great Vincent Price.)

Coincidentally, the three 80s movies are all from 1984...
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Still to this day have never seen Footloose,1941 might have been blasted by critics upon its original release but I personally do think that it is a lot of fun!

Talking of Footloose I've never seen the other 80s mega hit dance flick Flashdance either,I think it's about time I got around to checking both of them out!

I could perhaps do a Footloose Flashdance Combo with a bit of Saturday Night Fever thrown in for good luck!

Not forgetting Fame - "Fame! I'm gonna live forever/ I'm gonna learn how to fly (high!)/ I feel it coming together/ People will see me and cry!" - with the People Will see me and cry part of the song probably being the most appropriate to describe my dancing! [Big Grin]

Here's another one from last month's package :

 -

Dangerous Men (2005)

,..In 1979, Iranian Filmmaker John S. Rad moved to the US to shoot his dream project, a rampaging gutter epic
of crime, revenge, sex, and raw power. Just 26 years later, he completed an American action film masterpiece
that the world is still barely ready for today : DANGEROUS MEN !..'

,..It's a pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, brain-devouring onslaught of 80s thunder, 90s lightning,
and pure filmmaking daredevilry from another time and dimension. Blades flash, blood flows, bullets fly,
and synthesizers blare as the morgue overflows with the corpses of DANGEROUS MEN !..'

Well, doesn't that sound promising ? [Big Grin]

I haven't seen it yet, but i think this may be very similar to the work of Amir Shervan.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
And some more :

 -  -

Roman Polanski's What (1972), and The Ninth Configuration (1980).

 -

Shadows In An Empty Room (1976) with the original Blazing Magnum artwork on the flipside of the sleeve.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
That's what I want to check out The Ninth Configuration,it looks cool and has a great cast!

Have you watched the Blu yet Johnny?
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
I haven't, no.. but i did check the quality to get an overall impression, and i can assure it looks very good.
Plus there seem to be a lot more extra's on the disc than initially announced on blu-ray.com.

I've never seen The Ninth Configuration before, but it appears to be a complex, mind-bending psychological thriller..
so i guess it will be right up my alley. [Smile]

Another winner from UK's Second Sight Films !

the falcon and the snowman
And one of my favourite movies of the 80s
fx murder by illusion also known as FX.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Pittsburgh when you get the chance if you can let us know what Cross My Heart with Martin Short is like i'd be grateful as I've been curious about it for sometime now,i've seen Opportunity Knocks ages ago and think I remember it being pretty good,not seen either Splitting Heirs or Fierce Creatures though.

F/X is awesome david and I really enjoyed the 1991 sequel as well,Falcon And The Snowman is also a great movie!


Terd have You watched Maximum Overdrive before? I know most of the critics hate it but I think it really rocks,Emilio Estevez against a load of killer trucks you know it's going to be great fun!

Yeah Warrior. I saw it back in the 80s. Lately I have had an urge to rewatch it. I was disappointed in it back then but I have been keeping an eye out for it and got lucky the other day and found a vhs copy. Its a cheap quality copy so I hope it works.

I love Porky's,looks great on Blu as well,i've got the Arrow steelbook release, I'm positive that must have reversible original cover artwork on the back!

In God's Hands that's the release we were talking about the other day directed by Zalman King,i know you've just got it but have you had chance to check it out yet?

Deceived is a good little thriller in my opinion!

Most recently I picked up The NeverEnding Story on DVD for $5.00 at Target. The kids seemed pretty interested in it, so that was nice.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Never seen The Never Ending Story but my son's got it on his shelf on Dvd so I will check it out at some point,always looked liked a well made family fantasy adventure!

Manhunnters cool I liked that,never seen any of the others you've picked up there johnny but they all look very interesting especially the Killer Dames double pack,Psychic Killer and the Jodie Foster flick The Little Girl That Lived Down The Lane.

Worth Winning I thought that was a lot of fun Atomik as was Hello Again,i've seen Dutch way back under an alternate title and I think remember it being good fun,also have watched Traces Of Red before but can't remember it very well at all!

The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane is available on both region A blu-ray (from Scorpion / Kino Lorber)
and Region B (from UK's Signal One Entertainment).
Quality-wise the transfers may be identical, but i decided to get the region A disc because it has slightly better extra's,
including a director's commentary and a new, half hour interview with Martin Sheen.

Great movie (although a bit of a slowburner), and video-quality looks absolutely amazing. Highly recommended !

Here's two more 80s (semi-)classics from my latest package :

Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Never seen either Solarbabies or Steele Justice before are they pretty good fun Johnny?
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
I have never seen these either, although i do have original advertising material for both from back in the day,
promoting their release on rental video. So i'm happy to finally have these two movies in my collection now.
It sort of makes me feel like i've come full circle, plus the fact that Kino Lorber always uses the original artwork
adds that little extra nostalgic feel to these releases as well. [Smile]

Last Shift and Backtrack both on Dvd,Total Recall,Class Of 1984,Meatballs,Army Of Darkness and Copycat on Blu Ray
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
Very nice YW! I haven't seen Backtrack yet. Meatballs is always a favorite.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Backtrack I found pretty enjoyable Pittsburghgirl,the plot is a bit by the numbers but it's well made plus well acted by Adrien Brody,Sam Neil,etc. in all truth it's a rather enjoyable Horror Mystery!

Meatballs is a classic,it's such fun,i find it to be really funny in parts plus it's very good natured,Bill Murray is ace as well as one of the main camp counselors!

Man you watch a lot of movies Warrior! I picked up Money Pit the other day on vhs.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Money Pit is great fun Terd! I've been picking up quite a few releases of late but the good thing is it hasn't hit me to hard in the pocket as I'm using my savvy and picking up most of these when there in the sales Dr.Alien - £4.50p,Sleepaway Camp 3 - £6,Face Off/Snake Eyes - £4.26p it was only The Anthony Perkins double pack that was a bit more expensive at 12 UK pounds.

I definitely hold off if I think a film is too expensive even if it means missing out!

Love The Money Pit. Back when Hanks was a comedian.

A bunch of imports from my June package include :

Man From Deep River (88Films blu-ray). The BBFC cut out some scenes of animal cruelty, but among its many extra's
is a feature-length documentary about "cannibal actress" Me Me Lai, so that's pretty cool !

Burial Ground (88Films blu-ray). Excellent restoration blows every previous edition out of the water,
and finally makes this Euro-trash splatter classic look like a real film !

Trancers 3 ; Deth Lives (88Films blu-ray) and Enemy Mine (Eureka UK blu-ray).

Black Widow and the fully loaded special edition of The Seven-Ups, both on blu-ray from UK's Signal One Entertainment.

Various US imports include :

Killer Force (1976, blu-ray), Christina (1984, blu-ray), Sorceress (1995, Synapse blu-ray), plus :

Picked up Trees Lounge (1996) written and directed by Steve Buscemi, and L.A. Guns "Love, Peace and Geese" collection of videos. Both on VHS, found at my new favorite thrift store. I have a feeling I'm going to eventually find some valuable treasures there.
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
Pittsburghgirl. Have you seen Trees Lounge? I saw it back in the 90s and it was kinda odd but I was fine with that.
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
Terd, I'd guess I watched it about 4-5 years ago, when I had my first go-round with Netflix, and we did both streaming and disc rental. I remember watching it on disc. It was kinda slow, but quirky. Your typical 90's indie film.
I had cancelled Netflix back in 2014, and I re-subscribed on New Year's Eve for streaming. Do they still do the disc rental too, does anyone know?

Love that Chain Of Command artwork Atomik,looks very similar to the old Uk VHS release of it we had over here,much better than the art for my no frills Chinese Dvd release of it I picked up some years back on eBay which has optional Chinese,English stereo audio and a 4.3 picture format.

Midnight Ride is another I own which is from the far east Thailand I presume as it has an optional Thai/English 5.1 audio track and same again with only a full screen picture ratio.

Both enjoyable Dudikoff/Cannon 90s flicks!

Sadly the Monster Squad Blu Ray which is from Olive Films is bonus free but on the positive side the picture quality is really good!

Wow! The Caller (1987) with Malcolm McDowell and Madolyn Smith Osborne. What a memorably weird little two-character Charles Band thing! It's a film with terrific acting by the pair and an ending right out of thin air that you won't guess in a million years. If you haven't seen, don't read any spoilers, and try to find it. It's a different, cool low-budget film.

I've added four vintage Brigitte LaHaie titles to my collection.

They're presented on two double-feature dvds released by the Alpha France archives :

- La Maison Des Phantasmes (1979) / Couple Cherche Esclaves Sexuels (1979)

- La Perversion D'Une Jeune Mariée (1978) / Auto-Stoppeuses En Chaleur (1979)

Nice quality prints with original French audio, as well as dubbed English. The first one features
a 42 minute interview with LaHaie herself, while the second has a full hour of additional LaHaie scenes
from various other vintage Alpha France titles.

- 4 new Arrow combopacks (Return Of The Killer Tomatoes, The Swinging Cheerleaders, Satan's Blade, and Crimes Of Passion)

- All 5 Vinegar Syndrome's that were released yesterday, including Petey Wheatstraw ; The Devil's Son In Law (1977)

Lucio Fulci's Cat In The Brain, both stacked to the max with extra's

- Various other UK imports include Highlander (30th anniversary edition) and Absolute Beginners, both on blu-ray

And also this very cool feature-length documentary about independent filmmaker Jim VanBebber :

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Gotta love your stuff, my friend. You can't go wrong with the great Rudy Ray Moore. I saw Dr. Butcher, M.D. at the seediest Philadelphia grindhouse the day that it opened. What an experience! It was distributed, not by an exploitation giant like New World, Avco Embassy, or Cannon, but by New York City's Terry Levene and Aquarius Releasing. I love those guys like Levene, Jerry Gross, Brandon Chase, and Joseph Brenner, trying to peddle foreign crap to the urban market, basically with only a few prints in a few cities at a time, all from "headquarters" located in a walk-up in some trashy neighborhood. Levene was great because he always used the booming voice of Adolph Caesar in his trailers. And his, as they used to say, "ballyhoo" promoting the films was something else. For Butcher, he parked an ambulance outside the theatre with fake doctor and nurses with rubber body parts. Those were the good old days where you got a show inside and outside the theatre. I would have loved to have been around to see these guys dreaming up ad campaigns or sitting in a cigarette-smoke haze in some dismal editing room making stuff more accessible to U.S. audiences. Frank Henenlotter got a favorable quote for his film Frankenhooker from Bill Murray, of all people, who was editing Quick Change in an adjoining editing studio. Can you picture that image? Bill Murray watching the rough cut of Frankenhooker? Fantastic!

I picked up a load of DVDs at the dollar store. Here is a list, and I am hoping maybe some of you can give me any info on two of them, as I can't find any information on them on IMdb. They are all from Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.
Bordertown: seasons 1&2
Legacy The Complete Series
A Hallmark Channel pack: Thicker Than Water, Angel in the Family, What I Did For Love, Terror in the Family, Ordinary Miracles
3 Classic Films: Mark Twain's "Roughing It", The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn
Due South, Season One (my husband liked this- I have never seen it)
The Hurricane Express (John Wayne)
And a cheesetastic Action Pack: 7 Movies!: The Kansas City Massacre, Fist of Honor, Forced to Kill, Maximum Cage Fighting, East L.A. Warriors, Street Killing, and The Million Dollar Highjack
I can't find The Million Dollar Highjack on IMDb.
There is no description of Street Killing either.
Thanks for any help. I can't wait to watch the 7 Movie Action Pack. I will probably watch them at camp in the late fall/ early winter. My Dad gave me a small DVD player and I am going to hook it up there soon.

I know. Sigh. I'm a frustrated imrov sketch comedian/voice-over artist/writer-director. Maybe there's time for a career change to narrating audio books. LOL

I love the rewind because I get the chance to keep obscure or lost film history alive with these posts. And I hope that I succeed in giving my fellow film-buff friends a taste of what it was really like to see stuff in a scary grindhouse 30 or 40 years ago or work at a drive-in as a projectionist showing stuff like Gone in 60 Seconds and Amuck. We never thought twice about risking our lives at those seedy venues. Now, you don't even have the opportunity anymore. As I grow older, I even get nostalgic and have fond memories of trying not to retch from the smell in that Philadelphia theatre or get stabbed in the balcony. Movie-going was once an adventure!

November Man was good if I am remembering the correct movie. I remember while eating breakfast at the Hilton Airport in Dublin every morning, I'd see his picture. They had pictures of famous Irish persons all around the dining room.

There's a lot of background info on that among the extensive special features of this new 2-disc set.
Disc one is entirely devoted to the Dr. Butcher version, with multiple featurettes chronicling the distribution
through Aquarius , the re-editing of the Italian cut, and the advertising campaign, as well as a piece on
the NYC locations then-and-now, while disc two has its focus on the Zombi Holocaust cut,
with interviews with several of the original cast members and special effects artists.

Oh, and my copy came with a free barf-bag with Dr. Butcher print too. Lovely ! [Big Grin]

I like the zany Dr. Butcher, M.D., and would love to see the featurettes on re-cutting the film for the U.S. and the advertising campaign. I haven't seen Zombi Holocaust, another reason to get this special edition.

Picked up Disorganized Crime (1989) and Indian Summer (1993) at a thrift store. I remember I liked Indian Summer. I've never seen Dislrganized Crime.

Disorganized Crime I really enjoyed Pittsburghgirl I've got it on a cheap Blu Ray from the budget Us distributor Mill Creek Entertainment,it's a fun film with a great cast - Lou Diamond Phillips,Fred Gwynne,Corbin Bernsen etc. I think you'll probably like it!

Region coding is such a pain,i'm lucky as all my Blu Ray players are region free but I know many people don't have that luxury and I know how frustrating it can be,Secret Admirer was MGM so I'd imagine someone's bound to pick it up for a European release at some point especially as there's already a HD master of it doing the rounds!

I preferred Into Darkness to the first one, possibly because I'd deliberately avoided all trailers.

The latest one - where I also didn't watch trailers - is just as good.

Picked up a few yesterday on VHS- Zapped (1982), Animal House Special Edition, Soapdish (1991) and Necessary Roughness (1991). Also scored a two disc special edition of The Hangover with the Unrated version and the Theatrical Version.
Today I picked up The Swap, starring Robert Deniro, on a VHS dated 1989, but apparently the movie was released in 1979 using footage stolen from another movie filmed in 1969! Crash, do you know anything abou this film?! TIA!

HelenS. From what I've read, it's really bad. I am wondering about the backstory, of it being a film from 1979 using stolen footage from a 1969 film. Very strange! And the VHS cover on it is dated 1989. They must have been trying to capitalize on Deniro's popularity.

I wasn't really keen on Court Yorga, Vampire after having seen it on TV way back in the 70s. I saw an uncut print titled The Loves of Count Iorga (That's the way it was actually spelled) at the drive-in festival a few years ago, and it blew me away. I really liked it. I need to take another look at the sequel. (By the way, I have no idea where they get such great prints for the bi-annual drive-in festivals. They got Iorga and a copy of Vincent Price's The Last Man on Earth with the title The Damned Walk at Midnight. I had never seen either of them with those titles.)

Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
You just can't go wrong with Criterion ! I'm very happy they started releasing their stuff in the UK as well.

I own the older Sony blu-ray of Easy Rider. Not sure how it compares to the Criterion disc, but i'm happy with it regardless.

I was thinking about getting Polanski's The Tragedy Of MacBeth, and i'm very curious about The In-Laws too.

I've just watched the trailer for The In-Laws on Youtube, and it looks like the movie is a total blast, real funny ! [Smile]
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Yeah I just checked out the In-laws (1979) trailer as well and thought it looked really good fun,definitely looks better than the 2003 remake starring Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks though that looks pretty amusing in parts as well!

I picked up Under Siege 2 and Making The Grade on Blu Ray and One Night At McCool's on DVD.


PS Johnny you should have a blast watching Hellhole as it's one crazy,sleazy flick!

The original The In-Laws is one of the funniest movies that I've ever seen. The writing is just fantastically nutty, and the pairing of Arkin and Falk is absolutely brilliant. It makes me laugh just thinking about some of the scenes. "Serpentine! Serpentine!" is pretty much a signature line for the ages.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Alan Arkin is always great I loved his small but very memorable performance as John Cusack's shrink in the awesome Grosse Point Blank.

Picked up on Blu Stretch from the director of Smokin' Aces and like that film a bit all over the place but in my opinion a very fun watch,features cameos from Ray Liotta and "The Hoff" also grabbed on Blu Ray the fun Aussie comedy Mental that features an hilarious performance from Anthony Lapaglia,horror anthology Creepshow on Blu and lastly the John Travolta thriller The General's Daughter on Dvd.

Never seen any of the new Trek movies and to be honest not seen many from the originals but I did watch Star Trek The Motion Picture at the theatres on its original release and some years later went and watched part 4 The Voyage Home at the flicks as well which I thought was a really fun watch and one that would appeal to even the non fans of the series in the audience!

It's a pity what happened to Anton Yelchin,Paul have you ever watched the sci-fi film Odd Thomas - https://youtu.be/DX0Vreu6eW8 with him in it as it's a very imaginative and fun movie!

Picked up a few Blu-ray's and went cowboy crazy with Silverado and Two Mules For Sister Sara,also after looking for it on my shelf for a good few minutes i eventually came to the conclusion that I don't actually own it so I decided to grab a copy of the classic John Landis comedy Trading Places.

Last but not least The Dream Team starring Michael Keaton.

US imports include Chopping Mall, The Rift, Jess Franco's Daughter Of Dracula, Metalstorm ; The Destruction Of Jared-Syn,

UK imports include Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (88Films' newly restored special edition blu-ray),
Panic In Needle Park, Criterion's The In-Laws, Arrow's Slugs, and the BFI's greatly improved Psychomania combopack !

Also this documentary, directed by Simon Sheridan, author of Keeping The British End Up,

Interesting documentary to say the least.
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Definitely ! It got some pretty good reviews on the Imdb, and the disc comes with a fair amount of extra's too.

One note about the new Vestron Video blu-rays though :

The outer slipcases are NOT sealed, and they use those dreaded eco-boxes with the big holes in it. [Frown]
So, while the discs are top-notch, they still could improve on their packaging.

So far i only have Chopping Mall, but i assume they're all packaged the same way. I would prefer to see those slipcases
being sealed as well, just the way as Shout Factory does with the slipcases on their collector's editions.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
What's The Rift like Johnny any good?

Lady In White is a spooky delight,never seen Metalstorm or Sorority Babes but would like to,cheeky of Lionsgate to charge top dollar for the Vestron line and then put them in those god awful eco cases.

Some slight nudity there, but a release like this deserves a little extra attention.

It's a German import blu-ray disc, which has Notti Porno Nel Mondo (1977), a mondo-movie type
of documentary with lovely Laura Gemser as our host, presenting all sorts of odd sexual behaviour
from around the globe. For some reason, the movie is credited to both Bruno Mattei AND Joe D'Amato !

It's paired up with the even more obscure Prostitution International ; Brigade Criminelle (1980),
directed by Sergio Gobbi, and again starring Laura Gemser, Black Emanuelle herself !

I also got the movie Le Diable Rose (1987) on a good quality German import dvd, which came with
a very nice, glossy slipcover. The movie stars Brigitte LaHaie, and was directed by Pierre B Reinhard
who also did the trash classic Revenge Of the Living Dead Girls the same year.

- Numbers 2 and 3 of the revived Vestron Video label, Blood Diner and Waxwork 1 + 2.

- Shout Factory's release of Nighthawks, which comes with much more extra's than i expected.

- Blue Underground's Manhattan Baby, the limited 3 disc edition, which also includes Fabio Frizzi's score on cd.

- Arrow's The Hills Have Eyes, which looks very stylish with a sturdy outer box, a nice booklet, lobbycards, and a poster.

Labyrinth (30th anniversary steelbook edition)

One of the very very few, big-studio re-releases that was actually given a Dutch release.
To be honest, i doubt this new blu-ray edition would have been released here if Bowie hadn't died earlier this year.

We don't even seem to get any Universal catalogue titles anymore. Within the last year or so, several Michael J Fox movies,
the Jaws sequels, as well as Xanadu, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, and The Money Pit were made available
for region B territories. But no, not here in Holland.. we didn't get any of these ! [Frown]

Anyway.. this set includes blu-ray editions of Theorem (1968), Medea (1969, Il Decamerone (1971),
The Canterbury Tales (1972), Arabian Nights (1974), and Salo (1975), plus a seventh disc with
additional bonus features.

 -

The UK edition of the Decline Of Western Civilization box set (from Second Sight Films),
which is identical to the region A, Shout Factory set (which means it also comes with
a bonus disc as well as the 40 page booklet).

For those interested.. The UK blu-ray box-set currently sells for a very good price !

Also : Body Double (blu-ray + dvd combopack), The Neon Demon, Everybody Wants Some, and The Killing Of America.

The Killing Of America is in fact a UK release. Apparently, Severin Films released the exact same disc
in the UK as well.. but as the recent devaluation of the British pound serves me well, i could get this
much cheaper than the one from the US.

Wow! 15 discs,saying that it's a fun show which I used to love watching on the box but I haven't seen it in years as I can't remember the last time it was aired over here in the UK but it's got to be sometime!

Is that a Dutch dvd of Arthur 2 ? That age certificate logo looks like the one they use here in Holland.

Anyway.. my first package of 2017 arrived this morning. Several cool titles were sent early, as it's still 4 days
before official release date, and they've already crossed the ocean to end up on my doorstep ! [Smile]

Mostly US imports, including the notorious Love Camp 7 (Blue Underground combopack), The Lair Of The White Worm (Vestron),
collector's editions of Poltergeist 2 and 3 (Scream Factory), and a whole bunch of Cirio Santiago titles, Stryker (blu-ray),
Wheels Of Fire (dvd), Equalizer 2000 (dvd), The Sisterhood (dvd), and Dune Warriors (dvd).

 -  -

Four out of five Vinegar Syndrome january titles (for some reason, Taboo 4 didn't come in yet), including Don't Answer The Phone,
Blood Mania / Point Of Terror (limited 3-disc edition), the very obscure Blue Money, and some vintage Seka erotica. [Cool]

Also included, after being delayed for a couple of weeks, the Lady Libertine / Love Circles double-feature blu-ray,
as well as Jess Franco's The Night Has A Thousand Desires (Mondo Macabro blu-ray).

Two UK imports from 88Films : The Devonsville Terror and Hands Of Steel (which has a new 40 minute interview with Sergio Martino).

I have never seen any of the aforementioned Cirio Santiago post-apocalypse movies, even though i clearly remember them
from the glory days of video rental stores. Thirty years down the road, i finally have the opportunity to catch up with what i
missed all those years ago.. Hey, better late than never, i'd say ! [Big Grin]

You guys got some eclectic stuff to start off 2017. Johnny, have you seen Blood Mania and Point of Terror, otherwise known as singer Pete Carpenter's vanity pictures? LOL Those two used to play throughout the mid-late 70s on late-night TV. And they wound up in so many exploitation and drive-in DVD box sets in the U.S. (I think that I have three different copies of each one.) Apparently Crown International distributed a TV package here in the U.S. during that era that included those two, They Saved Hitler's Brain (classic!), Terrified, Nightmare in Wax, Blood of Dracula's Castle, and a really cool, small gem called Horror High, or as it was shown on TV, Twisted Brain. While Crown didn't come close to hitting the artistic heights of AIP, their films were always entertaining, pretty much models of what worked in American drive-ins.

Nice Thread to share my favorite movies, thanks to "Gustavo Woltmann" for reffering this thread and "The Wizard" for create this thread.
I bought Skyfall and GoT season 1 on Bluray a few weeks ago. And I am going to buy Breaking Bad Season 5.

Thanks once again. [Smile]
Have nice day. [Cool]

@Crash.. I never saw Blood Mania, but i do have Point Of Terror. It was included in a 'Horrible Horrors' collection
which consisted of 2 double-sided discs with two full movies on each side. Among the other movies included in that set
were Norman J Warren's Satan's Slave and Terror, and Roberta Findlay's Lurkers, for which i bought this.
There was also a second 'Horrible Horrors' set (which, i think, had Blood Mania included), but i never bothered because i
wasn't too impressed with the quality of the first set. Fortunately, most of these movies have since been re-released in
much-improved editions. By the way, the third disc in Vinegar Syndrome's limited edition pack has alternate TV versions
of both movies. I'm not sure how much they differ from the theatrical versions, but it certainly does show VS's dedication.
And, of course, quality-wise they're head and shoulders above any of the previously released dvd editions.

@Young Warrior.. Nice pick ups. You can never go wrong with that Clint set, and Arrow's To Live And Die In LA looks amazing.
Remember that car chase scene in broad daylight ? You practically need sunglasses to watch it. It's extremely bright.
It really is sunny in L.A. now in Arrow's new 4K transfer ! [Cool]

@aTomiK.. Beastmaster on blu-ray ?.. I love that movie. Unfortunately i don't have access to Australian import,
so i will have to wait till it gets a US or UK release. Even though i'm perfectly satisfied with the old Anchor Bay dvd,
i will not hesitate to upgrade Beastmaster to blu-ray !

@Kashfiya Rafa.. Welcome to the Rewind forum, my fellow Dutch citizen ! [Smile]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I have the Horrible Horrors collections and agree that quality-wise, the discs were fairly lousy. (And the notorious Don't Answer the Phone was the cut TV version.) Go to www.dvddrive-in.com where there is a review that includes a description of what Crown added to Blood Mania and Point of Terror for the TV package. Vinegar Syndrome is fast becoming Criterion for exploitation films.

I picked up Heavy Metal (1981) on VHS today at a thrift shop . I vaguely remember seeing it as a kid, but what really stands out is the soundtrack. My friend, who bought a new album every week, had the soundtrack album and we played it quite often. I would kill to have her collection. She gave it to her younger brother, and he sold them off.

He had a couple of these puck monster handhelds as well and told me to name a price I'd be willing to pay but both had a bit of cosmetic damage to there screens so I passed on them.

Maybe I was being a bit too fuzzy considering there age and the fact that I think there screens were prone to scratching easy.

Remember playing this Pac-Man inspired handheld as a youngster and loving it!

February package UK / US imports arrived ! [Cool]

 -  -

All four Vinegar Syndrome titles for february, including combopacks of Slaughterhouse and Alex DeRenzy's XXX classic Babyface,
as well as two of their releases that hadn't come in yet (Taboo 4 from last month and Jack Frost from last december).

Deadtime Stories from Shout Factory, the trippy 1981 Korean horror flick Suddenly In The Dark from Mondo Macabro,
Cat's Eye (which, for some reason, i didn't have yet), all on blu-ray, and i've upgraded Tobe Hooper's Salem's Lot too.

 -  -

From the UK i have The New Centurions (combopack), Willie Dynamite (combopack), and Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia,
Arrow's limited 2 disc blu-ray set with a whopping 10 hours of bonus material !

I went to town yesterday, and couldn't resist picking up this blu-ray.. in fact, two blu-rays

 -

The Conjuring parts 1 and 2 packaged together in a cardboard box, which contains both movies in seperate blu-ray cases.
These are the regular Dutch releases, but as they are from a major studio, i assume they're identical to the UK and US discs.

I hardly ever buy any newer movies, so this is that rare exception.. [Smile]

Picked up the fun 1988 horror Pulse on Blu Ray but have yet to check out the transfer but have heard it's pretty good!

Even though I'm Blu Ray region free this release like Mill Creek's Band Of The Hand Blu Ray is actually Region A + B (and chances are probably region C as well) so should play more or less everywhere no problems!

I would love to upgrade my old dvd of The Blob to blu-ray.. My guess is that a UK edition can't be far away,
with Powerhouse Films and also Eureka raiding the Columbia Tri-Star / Sony vaults.

Here's a couple of highlights from my March package, including these '80s Kino Lorber titles :

but also this lovely Criterion box-set :

 -

All six original Lone Wolf & Cub films from the early '70s, as well as Shogun Assassin (1980), plus extra's !
I test checked these discs, and the transfers look absolutely stunning.. very happy with this one. [Smile]
The one i bought is the UK edition, which is identical to the one they released in the US last november.

I also have Teen Witch, a bunch of recently released 88Films blu-rays (from their Italian Collection),
Walerian Borowczyk's The Story Of Sin (Arrow), and of course the latest from Vinegar Syndrome ! [Cool]

Also on dvd i got the 1988 horror Necromancer starring the beautiful Elizabeth Clayton.

http://www.retrogames.co.uk/011658/Handheld/Caveman-by-Tomy-Grandstand - 1982 was the year it came out Terd so definitely going back a while.

It has the odd minor mark on it but i suppose for something that's about 35 years old and was originally probably purchased for an 70s/80s child i've got to expect it!

This morning, two Arrow box sets were delivered at Roarke residence.. and they look absolutely gorgeous !

House; The Complete Collection and the Phantasm 1-5 set, complete with sphere replica. [Cool]

The Phantasm box was actually sent to me early, with several online forums still discussing what the actual packaging
will look like, as there's still only the promotional pics Arrow sent out some time ago to get an impression.
A promo video was released last thursday, but it still didn't really show the actual box-set, so i'm super-psyched
to already have this in my house, in The Netherlands of all places ! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Not got the Phantasm boxset but have picked up the Arrow House collection Johnny and agree it's a terrific set,have watched parts 1&2 so far and transfer wise i'm quite impressed!

Awesome book on the series included as well.


 -

Strange how you got no slip with Everybody Wants Some,actually checked it out the other night and though i do prefer Dazed & Confused over it it was still a lot of fun to watch!
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
I'm not sure how it was in the US, but i believe it took some time before Dazed And Confused found its audience in Europe,
as it went fairly unnoticed upon original release. With the way we look at it now it's of course hard to top Dazed And Confused,
but i do think Everybody Wants Some is a movie that will grow on you in years to come.

Regarding the Phantasm box, this was the promotional pic Arrow sent out several weeks ago..

 -

The CD sized one-tray digipaks that hold the discs are stacked on the bottom of the outer box. On top of that is a styrofoam block
that carries the sphere replica, while the hefty book (which is NOT a hardcover, as the pic may suggest) stands against the backside
within the box.

Took me a little while to notice O J Simpson in The Klansman and to think what become of him,never seen it before and that's one cool cast what with Burton,Marvin plus Linda Evans as well!

That Empire Of The Ants cover rocks and Robert Lansing must have a thing about insects/bugs as he also popped up in the fun 80s cockroach horror The Nest.

As of late I have picked up on Blu Ray the Patrick Swayze trucking action flick Black Dog,late 80s horror Hide And Go Shriek and lastly one that I have never seen before and that is the family sci - fi adventure Flight Of The Navigator.

On dvd I grabbed a cheap copy of the 1981 John Schlesinger directed box office fiasco - The Honky Tonk Freeway which I haven't watched for absolutely years now.

Got to be back in the mid to late 80s I think I last watched that!

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I have kind of a soft spot for Black Dog, if only because Meat Loaf, a/k/a M.L. Aday, gets to say the line of trucker mythology, "Have you seen him? Have you seen the Black Dog?" [Smile] Interestingly, Kevin Sorbo from TV's Hercules was slated to star, but he got hurt and had to pull out in favor of the late, great Patrick Swayze.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
A fun little action movie Black Dog but I'm surprised that Mr Loaf didn't feature at all anywhere on the soundtrack but the other co star Randy Travis did!

Do prefer Swayze's 80s output (Roadhouse,Next Of Kin etc) but as late 90s action flicks go and one that went straight to home video here in the UK I would say that's it's a definite cut above the norm!
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
I think people forget that Meat Loaf is a good actor, having started off way, way back in the stage version and later the movie version of The Rocky Horror Show as well two lost favorites, Roadie and Americathon.

Those are some good, fun, mindless action films. I still laugh thinking about Bill Murray and his crazy brothers who will anonymously call Swayze's Roadhouse co-star Kelly Lynch, who is married to their friend writer/producer Mitch Glazer, day or night whenever Roadhouse is on TV and tell her, "Patrick and Kelly are against the rocks" and then hang up.

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Roadie is all but forgotten. It was a complete flop when it was released. I don't think that it gathered much of a cult when it made the rounds of pay-cable back in the 80s, and no one talks about it today. It's definitely one of those films deserving of re-discovery.

Today i received the German blu-ray edition of Amuck (1972). I know it was also released by 88Films in the UK recently,
but i deliberately waited for this one to keep my Camera Obscura collection complete. [Cool]

Reportedly both releases use the same transfer. Extra's are different though, plus there's a soundtrack CD included
with the Camera Obscura edition.. And like most of their releases it's limited to only 1000 copies, so that's pretty cool.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Very cool on a rarity like Amuck!
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
Yeah, pretty much all of Camera Obscura's releases are worthwhile.. A bit expensive maybe, but very cool for collectors. [Smile]

After a bit of delay because of unclear reasons i finally received the remainder of last month's order, both US and UK imports.

 -  -

Demented (1980), a slightly under-the-radar blu-ray release from Shout! Factory, as well as their Never Too Young To Die combo.

Other US imports include Kino Lorber's edition of The Wanderers (1979), which is a double blu-ray set that includes 2 versions,
plus a wealth of bonus material. And two more Vinegar Syndrome retro erotica dvds from their latest batch of titles. However,
their Psycho Cop Returns combopack didn't come in yet.. have to wait another month for that one.

 -  -

I thought i'd try something different for a change and treated myself to some Takashi Miike madness with these two trilogies.

Also upgraded Umberto Lenzi's Almost Human to blu-ray with the new Shameless UK numbered edition.. mine is #798 out of 3000.

Love to check out the Sorceress with Linda Blair plus Megaforce Atomik,never seen the January Man either even though I've had it on my online rental list for the best part of a few years now they just have never sent it!

Picked up a few Blu Ray's + a Dvd with my birthday monies I got the Werewolf horror Bad Moon,Easy Money/Men At Work double feature plus the Burt Reynolds stuntman comedy Hooper all on Blu,on Dvd I grabbed a very cheap brand new copy of the mid 80s romance comedy Nobody's Fool which I've never seen before but I like both leads - Rosanna Arquette and Eric Roberts.


On rental I was sent through -


 -

the 2016 comedy Bad Mom's which I started to watch last night and have only got about the last half hour or so to go as it was getting really late but from what I've seen so far it's been pretty good fun with some good laughs here and there!

Also was sent the 1976 horror Burnt Offerings with the great Ollie Reed which I have never got around to watching before so very much looking forward to checking it out!

Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
I've watched Hooper a few times Atomik and it's very light weight and fun entertainment with a cool cast that features a few Reynolds regulars.

For any Reynolds and Jan Michael Vincent fan such as yourself it's Certainly worth a purchase,the Blu Ray is actually all regions ABC and though I've not yet checked the disc out it is meant to be a really good transfer of the movie!

I'll let you know what Nobody's Fool is like as soon as I watch it,heard ok things about it so optimistic about it being pretty good!

Last week my May package full of US and UK imports arrived, but without a doubt the one most beautiful is :

 -

I was a bit worried it would become one of those Arrow limited editions that goes out-of-print immediately on release date.
It didn't.. but within 3 weeks, stocks were very (VERY!) low, so to those who are interested : Grab it while you can !

Also got a bunch of other stuff from Arrow, including Swedish splatter-fest Evil Ed, Frank Henenlotter's Brain Damage,
Italian crime movie The Climber, and manga-inspired Japanese exploitation flick Wolf Guy, starring Sonny Chiba.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Phenomena, while not Argento's best film, is extremely well-made and very entertaining. I mean, what other movie has a deranged freak killer, an intelligent monkey, a girl who can control insects with her mind, and Donald Pleasance? Not to mention beautiful cinematography of gorgeous locations and an impressive, throbbing score... It's like Argento did "My Best Of."

Yeah, i figured i wouldn't be the only one here who had set his sights on getting that Phenomena box-set ! [Big Grin]

I think it truly is the definitive edition, with the 116min, 110min, and butchered 83min Creepers cut,
each presented on their own disc, a new 2hrs docu, the soundtrack CD (close to 69min), a 60 page booklet,
plus some other goodies. The first Arrow blu-ray edition (which was a solid release to begin with) retains its value
for completists as extra's for that edition (including the 50min Argento's Monkey Business) are not carried over.

Still it's hard to imagine there will ever be a more complete, better quality edition than Arrow's latest box-set !

Among the US imports included in my latest package is this one :

 -

It's a Dutch movie.. so yeah, it makes me feel kinda proud to have this available again ! [Big Grin]

Reviews can already be found on several sites, and those explain everything waaaay better than i ever could,
so if you're eager to find out what this one is all about, here you go : www.mondo-digital.com/obsessions.html

Good gosh, I didn't even realize that a young Scorsese was a script doctor on this thing for a few hundred bucks. Every great director had to havestarted somewhere. DePalma did a public service piece for the U.S. Treasury, Coppola has a nudie film as do Abel Ferrara and Tobe Hooper. Carpenter has an Oscar winning short. And I believe that David Lynch's first short animation was entitled "Six Men Getting Sick." Humble beginnings...

By the way, the butchered 83-minute cut of Phenomena called Creepers was what New Line released in the U.S. and how I first saw the film. Man, the uncut version was a revelation.

Beginning with Inferno, Argento has had a history of bad or no releases in the U.S. As you guys know, Tenebrae got a release as Unsane with the best camera shot in the film edited out! 20th Century Fox, despite the success with Suspiria, didn't release Inferno until years later, just dumping it in New York theatres. It was the same deal with Opera and AIP/Filmways/Orion or whatever they were at the time: dumped into a couple of theatres as Terror at the Opera, probably to fulfill some video contract that the film receive a theatrical run. Other stuff had even less love--no theatrical release at all for Sleepless, Do You Like Hitchcock, and The Card Player, thought the Argento-Romero two-hander, Two Evil Eyes, did play a few hundred theatres. The Weinsteins' Dimension Films actually picked up Mother of Tears and gave it a token art house run, thinking that they could make a cult hit out of it. For Giallo, Argento and company got sued by Adrian Brody for non-payment of his salary so it didn't get a release. And the less said about Argento's Dracula in 3-D, the better. IFC picked it up despite the savage reviews, hoping to turn it into a cult hit. They didn't, despite running it for a week at their showcase theatre in New York City.

I can't believe how far Dario Argento has gone off the rails,Sleepless was the last pretty decent horror he put out in my opinion and what has come since from I have seen anyway and that is Giallo and Mother Of Tears has been nothing short of atrocious by his standards!
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Although I did like parts of Giallo better than most, I agree with you: Sleepless was his last really decent film. Mother of Tears was very bad, but you haven't lived until you've seen Argento's Dracula in 3-D, as it was billed in the U.S. It plays out like a joke that everyone is in on except Argento. And still, it has some good stuff in it. Thomas Kretschmann is not a bad Dracula, daughter Asia and the ladies are easy on the eyes, and even an obviously bored Rutger Hauer can enliven any film. But the whole thing reeks of no-budget, the CGI is ridiculous, the sets and cardboard choo-choo train are pathetic, the score is wildly anachronistic, and the overly bright cinematography (probably required by the 3-D) is garish. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars, a film by a once magnificent talent, who now in late career mode thinks that his ideas are better than they actually are. I would love to see Argento end his career with one more classic. But that's probably too much to hope for. I'd heard he even tried some crowd-sourcing thing, Indiegogo, to finance his next film. That's just sad...

Picked up a couple horrors on Blu I got Fender Bender from 2016 plus Lamberto Bava's Giallo Body Puzzle starring Joanna Pacula from 1992 and on DVD I got Don't Hang Up which like Fender Bender is also from 2016 about a group of teens who come unstuck when a Psycho takes exception to there cruel prank phone calls and plans some serious payback on them!

A bit more gentler type of viewing I'd imagine is the last title that I picked up and that is the Bill Forsythe's​ 1984 comedy Comfort And Joy which I have heard many good things about and i'm looking forward to checking it out!

I may be the only one who holds this opinion, YW, but Comfort and Joy is the absolute best Bill Forsythe film. Amazingly based on a real life gang war between ice cream trucks, it's a funny and ultimately very moving story about loss and finding purpose in one's life. Bill Paterson is wonderful in the lead. As an ex-disc jockey, I thought that he was 100% credible in the part.

I'm sure I will like it Crash as i liked both Gregory's Girl and Local Hero and though the majority of reviews do seem to favour either of the other two it still seems to be held in high regards by most with the odd individual like yourself actually preferring the most!

When I get around to watching it Crash I'll let you know my thoughts!

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?
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
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.
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
I read the book written by Pistone too. There was also a failed tv series, starring Jason Gedrick as "Falcone".
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
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.
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
Hey Pittsburghgirl, do you recommend that book?


Hey CRASH, I bet he has loads of interesting stories and COJONES! Haha
 
Posted by Johnny Roarke is reckless (Member # 9826) on :
 
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]
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
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.

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.

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!

Bro bought it so i´m definitely gonna rewatch the film and interested to see the extra features.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
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).

I'm now curious about 'Octavia'...
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
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!

Picked up on Scream Factory Blu Ray Prince Of Darkness and the killer wasp horror comedy Stung, also on Blu I got The Manhattan Project which is a blind buy for me and one that I have been wanting to watch for ages now and lastly the fun 80s Action thriller Opposing Force aka Hell Camp starring the cool Tom Skerritt.
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
The Manhattan Project is a good thriller, sort of like WarGames with some really nice performances from John Lithgow; Christopher Collet, who was also very good in First Born; and a young Cynthia "Sex in the City" Nixon. Apart from the stealing of the fissionable material--a well-done, fun scene--I don't find it unbelievable at all. Indeed, there actually was, as I recall, a high school student back in the 80s, who, on his own, came up with a design for a workable thermonuclear device for a science class paper. The U.S. Government came in and classified his paper as "top secret." [Smile] I think that you'll like it.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Yeah looking forward to checking out The Manhattan Project Crash and I did keep thinking to myself where had I seen Christopher Collet before and that is it,it was Firstborn which I also have on Blu Ray up on my shelf which is a decent little movie with a great performance by Peter Weller and was known as Moving In when it was released to VHS/Beta here in the UK back in 84!
 
Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Peter Weller is really excellent in a rare villainous role in First Born. He was one of those actors who is really solid in everything he does but who rarely gets any credit. The other Peter, Peter Coyote, was like that too in the 80s, good and overlooked.
 
Posted by the young warrior (Member # 9554) on :
 
Yeah I like Peter Coyote Crash,he is one of those actors that tends to go sometimes unotticed yet he always gives it his all and he's got a ton of credits to his name!

Picked up on Blu Ray a double bill of Empire Pictures 80s sci fi action in the Eliminators and Dungeon Master aka Ragewar, also on dvd I got a Eric Roberts action thriller called The Butcher which is a blind buy but it was that dirt cheap I thought it worth a gamble!

There's definitely some cool stuff there, Warrior. I also own that same No Retreat No Surrender blu-ray,
and in all honesty i enjoyed it far more than i dare to admit ! [Smile]

On saturday i received the latest batch of Vinegar Syndrome titles (Demon Wind, Blood Beat, A Woman's Torment,
and the Prime Evil / Lurkers double-feature, all combopacks), still several days prior to official release date.

From Kino Lorber i've got SpaceCamp, Night Angel, Stone Cold Dead, Rolling Vengeance, and of course Rawhead Rex.

A Quiet Place In The Country (1968) and Penelope Spheeris' Dudes (1987) from Shout! Factory.

And on dvd there's Moonshine County Express (1977) and Deadly Dreams (1988), both from the Code Red label.

From the others that you grabbed I have watched Space Camp before which was fun and Rolling Vengeance is a blast,also I have seen Deadly Dreams which is not entirely successful but the plot is pretty trippy and overall I'd say it's a decent watch!

The Devil's Honey looks cool!

Posted by Crash (Member # 7484) on :
 
Between Night and Dawn: The Lost Films of George Romero. How lost are they when I've had legit DVD versions of all three for years? LOL Seriously, the extras in this package are very enticing. I may be in the smallest minority around, but I think that of these three films, The Crazies is one of Romero's best films. Sure, it's low-budget, the acting is somewhat variable, and that snare-drum military soundtrack wears out its welcome fast, but it's ambitious, intelligently written, wonderfully edited, and thought provoking. If you haven't seen it, check it out. It's an impressive film. Breck Eisner's remake from a few years back is very good too on a much grander budget, but there's something about Romero's primitivism that works better for me.

And speaking of good editing, Jack's Wife a/k/a Season of the Witch a/k/a Hungry Wives, while not a complete success, does have an amazing last 20 minutes or so of suspense, perfectly edited by Romero himself. The rest of the film is talky and dated, but when you get to the climax, you are in Romero's good, scary hands.

I'll only say that the third film, There's Always Vanilla, the film Romero directed immediately after Night of the Living Dead, while not terrible and pretty watchable despite its age, is easily his weakest film in a long career without a single bad film. RIP, George.

I'll only say that the third film, There's Always Vanilla, the film Romero directed immediately after Night of the Living Dead, while not terrible
and pretty watchable despite its age, is easily his weakest film in a long career without a single bad film.

The original elements for There's Always Vanilla and Jack's Wife no longer exist, and therefore these films are considered lost.
They weren't talking about the availability of these titles, as indeed there was a Season Of The Witch / There's Always Vanilla
double-feature dvd released by Anchor Bay in 2005 (with video-quality waaaay below their usual high standards though).

As for There's always Vanilla.. I think it would make a very interesting double-feature with Tobe Hooper's Eggshells. [Smile]

I have the Anchor Bay double feature from 2005, and it wasn't top quality for Anchor Bay, but I was happy to have those two in any form. I first saw the Season of the Witch cut on VHS way back around 1983.

I thick that the early 1970s had some of the most interesting directors and films ever. Even when guys like Romero weren't on their A-game, the films are still better than 90% of the crap released today.

The Ambassador with Mitchum and Hudson while slow in places is not a bad little thriller,I've also seen Freeway (1988) but way back on VHS and can remember very little from it!

Never seen The Lift but do remember the old big box UK Warner Home Video cover for it plus never seen any films by Paul Naschy so curious as to what there like.

I'd be really curious as to what you think about the Naschy films. Quite frankly, I've never "gotten" them. I know that Naschy really loved the old Universal monsters, so he often cast himself as a werewolf. The films themselves are usually stodgy, like on the one hand, they were trying to replicate the Universal films, yet they have lots of violence and nudity, typical of the 1970s and 80s. (Naschy was big on bedding all these Euro-babes in his films. It's almost a running joke.) So they come off like neither fish nor fowl--too poky and hokey for modern audiences and too jarring for someone expecting classic horror, like Universal or Hammer. I'm not sure who the intended audience was. That's not to say that some of them aren't watchable. I just usually scratch my head because for every decent idea or scene, there are at least two or three that just don't work for me.

Last big package of the year arrived this morning, including :

 -  -

Suspiria is the new 4K restored version, limited to i-don't-know-how-many copies, but mine is #606 ! [Cool]

Both Suspiria as well as the new Twin Peaks series will definitely make my list of favourite releases of 2017, no doubt !

More to come...

 -  -  -

Terry Gilliam's Jabberwocky (Criterion blu-ray), Eyes Of Laura Mars (Powerhouse Films' Indicator Series), and of course i had to upgrade
my old dvd of Deathdream to this new Blue Underground combpack as it is one my favorite horrorfilms of all time !

Also upgraded the original Toolbox Murders (to the recently released 88Films blu-ray) and The Devil's Rain (to the new Severin blu-ray).

Devolution here,

Return to Horror High is a huge score.

NICE.

We are DEVO

I still own the bare-bones Anchor Bay dvd of Return To Horror High from 15 years ago. It has a nice looking transfer,
but from what i understand is that the 88Films disc is a considerable step up in overall quality, so i may be tempted
to upgrade and pick up a copy myself at some point.

Anyway, sooner than expected i already received my first package of 2018 the other day, with :

 -  -

Joe D'Amato's Emmanuelle & The Deadly Black Cobra (in Europe better known as Eva Nera) and Umberto Lenzi's
Seven Bloodstained Orchids, both on blu-ray from the Code Red label (and distributed through Kino Lorber).

More from Code Red : Truck Stop Women, The Concrete Jungle, and several Cirio H. Santiago titles, on dvd only.

Also upgraded Silent Night Deadly Night to the new Scream Factory 2-disc blu-ray set, and The Breakfast Club to
the recently released Criterion edition, which has some pretty cool extra's exclusive to this release !

I wish that Code Red Blu Ray's were a little easier to get hold off plus a lot cheaper as there's loads of titles I would like to pick up from them.

I have The Concrete Jungle on a budget UK full screen dvd and it's a great little WIP flick and is one I wouldn't mind upgrading to there new Blu.

A few of there releases I would also like to grab on Blu Ray -

Out Of Control - (1985) with Betsy Russell which I have on VHS
Humongous - (1982)
The Power - (1984) which I have already on Dvd
Butcher,Baker Nightmare Maker - (1982)
Sole Survivor - (1984) another I already own on DVD
Savage Attraction aka Hostage - (1983)
The Rain Killer - (1990) with Ray Sharkey which I own on VHS
Mutant - (1984) which I have the US wide-screen Dvd from Elite Entertainment.

So in all truth mostly just upgrades from VHS/DVD but if Code Red's prices were a bit more reasonable I would definitely go for it in replacing them all!


Some of the Blu Ray's (Below) that I got with my Christmas monies


 -


- 976 Evil,Wild Thing, Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man and lastly Vampires Kiss/ High Spirits double feature.

I have lots of Code Red's earlier stuff, but towards the end of 2011 they decided to start self-distribute their releases,
which caused their whole back-catalogue to go out-of-print instantly. I remember around that time i had pre-ordered
Night Of The Demon (1980), but it never came in...
It was only recently that Kino Lorber started distributing selected Code Red titles, making their releases widely available
once again. (some only on dvd, while the blu-ray editions remain very difficult to get a hold of)

Funny story : At a certain point, Code Red announced their release of God's Bloody Acre on dvd. The disc was withdrawn
just prior to release-date while copies were already sent out to suppliers. They were ordered to return their stock, and soon
after a replacement disc was issued (which paired God's Bloody Acre with a movie called Tomcats on a double-feature disc).
However, a certain US supplier had already sent out at least one copy of the original pressing to this store all the way across
the ocean in The Netherlands.. which, as you will have guessed by now, was my own pre-ordered copy of God's Bloody Acre ! [Cool]

Sounds like you have a bit of a collector's item there Johnny in that original pressing of God's Bloody Acre,Code Red is such a strangely run distributor with it's owner in my opinion totally blind to potential overseas sales!

I did read that he originally broke away from selling his titles through Amazon as he was making next to no profit from the sales but I'm not quite sure I buy that theory.

Diabolikdvd do sale Code Red Blu Ray's to overseas customers but there shipping costs are astronomical so no real joy there either!

I do feel for you folks who have to pay those shipping costs to Europe. I sent a DVD box set to the UK once, and the shipping was more than I paid for the DVDs. [Frown]
