I'm sure we'll see a lot more of this kind of poo poo if other pre-widescreen tv shows make it to blu-ray because people still lose their minds when PICTURE NOT FILL WHOLE SCREEN.

Some of those are 16:9 shots that were cropped into smaller 16:9 shots anyway

Is the dvd really garbage tier? I haven't watched that one but have been watching a few Shaw Bros dvds lately and the Celestial Pictures restorations are usually pretty good.

Anyway, looks like there are cheap blu-rays to import from Germany or Japan per blu-ray.com. The German release has English subs, but is 1080/50i and region b. The Japanese will be region a, but have no English subs and according to the site is mpeg-2 lol.

Yeah the blu-ray situation when it comes to Shaw Bros stuff is really sad

I just introduced a friend to King Hu through the criterion channel, but heís very anti dub so I was hopeful for a blu of come drink with me. I saw it in a local theatre last year and it looked great, so I was hoping that meant there might be a good transfer.

FancyMike posted:

As far as I know there haven't been any restorations of the Shaw catalog since the early 00s, so even what stuff there is on blu-ray I would expect to come from the same source as any dvds. There's a number of Chang Cheh and Lau Kar-leung movies I'd kill to see get a proper hd release. I was actually just last night comparing right next to each other the dvd and prime video (i think hd, it says 7gb/hr on the quality settings) for My Young Auntie and the video looked pretty much the same to me with the dvd audio sounding a little better. Also, My Young Auntie is a great action comedy and the Prime version is not dubbed like a lot of their Shaw Bros stuff is. It's not Dirty Ho level great, but a good time.

For King Hu specifically, a couple more of his Taiwan movies have been restored. Kino put out the US blu-ray of Legend of the Mountain last year and it's usually quite affordable. Less of an action movie but I love it, the restoration is beautiful and it's probably the best example of King Hu as nature photographer. And The Fate of Lee Khan has a new restoration touring now, I think a blu-ray is supposed to be out this summer. That one is basically Dragon Inn 2 and is also great. I'd love to see a new restoration of Raining in the Mountain (he shot it and Legend in Korea at the same time) or The Valiant Ones (because it's so hard to see) but I expect this is all we'll get.

Thanks for the rundown, Iíve only seen Touch of Zen, Dragon In , and Come Drink With Me so Iíll defintiely hunt down Legend and Lee Khan when I can

The DVD sets of House use a Massive Attack knock off theme song, in Australia at least. It never aired here with the original Teardrop credits either, so when I tried watching HD rips it was an actual surprise when Massive Attack started playing.

Streaming in the US gets you the knockoff, too, but the subs still say Massive Attack is playing

Zardoz - B (US Twilight Time edition is OOP, but it's Fox so who knows when it'll get a US release)
Cinema Paradiso - B (UK edition - there's also a US edition that's either A or A/B)


Also, just got my copy of The Shining on UHD...

The 4K remaster looks fantastic. Don't think there's much change in sound since the 2007 Blu had PCM 5.1 and this had DTS-HD MA 5.1. Only caveats would be that it doesn't have the original Saul Bass Warner logo (oddly has the late-80s logo from a freeze-frame), no original mono, the trailer wasn't included, and there's no new extras.

But then how will he make half a dozen Avatar sequels that nobody wants?


Mos people think it's a minor Carpenter but I like it a lot because it's super wacky and really fun. I also found it to be a better Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie than the actual Hitckhiker's Guide movie.

edit: I also just remembered that it's very similar in premise to Alien and I wonder if Dan O'Bannon purposely used Dark Star as the skeleton of Alien.

Youíre wondering if the guy who wrote them both realized they were similar?

That's what happens any time poo poo goes out of print. At least half the loving people buying it are probably doing so to flip it. Some stuff goes down later on.

i would guess it's a rights thing, newer/more popular criterion titles are definitely on the channel less frequently and for shorter time spans. maybe it's a programming thing to keep people in month to month though

Warner Archive is having a 4/$44 sale right now:

Looks like they're including stuff up through last month for the first time (usually the last three months aren't included in a sale).

I would strongly recommend everyone pick up the Tex Avery and Popeye Blu-rays as they look fantastic.

The new 4K restoration of Mystery of the Wax Museum is fantastic, plus it's one of the rare times WA has produced new extras. Two commentaries, a piece on Fay Wray, and a restoration featurette. The film only survives in the form of a worn 35mm nitrate print owned by Jack Warner and an incomplete French workprint. The end result is just brilliant.

Thereís a bunch of Popeye disks, which ones???

If you like the two King Hu movies Criterion put out (and even their Dragon Inn came out three years later than Eureka's from the same restoration), the other ones with recent restorations have been getting (sometimes inferior) US bluray releases and are all fantastic movies I can't recommend enough, though a little less wuxia. Just not from Criterion, so a lot fewer people will ever notice. Legend of the Mountain from Kino, Fate of Lee Khan and Raining in the Mountain from Film Movement. And Raining in the Mountain is at least streaming right now on Criterion Channel.

Wait, really? But Black Swan is also a remake of Perfect Blue... This is the first time I've heard Red Shoes described this way.

All the lesbian and identity confusion stuff is from perfect blue, the hallucinatory dance sequences are straight out of Red Shoes and they pretty much the same ending, as would Perfect Blue if it ended like 5 minutes earlier instead of Rumi and Mima both surviving. Remake might be a bit strong but itís a super clear and heavy influence.
