Got the second columbia classics collection yesterday. Was a little disappointed with social network, looked very soft to me.

also, why the hell do we continually get audio commentaries on the blu rays. Utterly mad.

That’s the Donnie Darko 4K replacement disc, so they’re starting to arrive now! 

Fuck, had no Idea The Thing was out. I wonder if I can wait until a 2 for £30...

My Donnie Darko finally arrived as well. Now I need to sort my Demons' disc out.

I noticed the super duper version of Escape From New York is being rereleased tomorrow (seems an odd day to release it). I missed it first time round so will be nice to have a box that matches my The Fog, Prince of Darkness and They Live boxes.

I do have all those Studio Canal 4k boxes but I must admit I find the artwork absolutely naff. Also that steelbook for the The Thing above, without the title I would have presumed it was Escape from New York.

 

Arrow used to nail it with the artwork back in the day but even they are very hit-and-miss now, I thought the Robocop one was rubbish for example and regret not getting the steelbook with the classic poster on the cover.

Can't you just reverse the sleeve on the arrow one for the OG poster art?


Ah, it was the limited edition in the cardboard box with the poster and etc. I’m a sucker for them despite rarely even looking at the extra supplementals.

Not as odd as Universal's LE of The Thing being made to look pretty much the same as those older Studio Canal sets. 

 

Shit, they even hired the same artist.

Flash Gordon is a 15 now? Does Vultan get his cock out or something?

Yeah, it's odd. But I'm glad they've done it. They must've realised it would play havoc with people's (my) OCD if they did something different, making it a good selling point!

It’s annoying enough as it is that the white isn’t consistent on the Studio Canal ones.

That’s the extended version included too, I think? 20th anniversary or something?

 

I noticed The Guest is £50 for the fancy pants version. I assume the big standard one isn’t listed yet.

 

I also have an Apple TV box now and some of the prices in the sales on that push films from ‘no thanks’ to ‘ok then’.

It's the soundtrack CD licencing fees that's pushed the price of The Guest up, apparently. 

 

Happy to wait on the standard edition, (which has been announced, just not when to expect it). 

 

Studio Canal can fuck right off with T2, until it's been remastered properly.

Is Don’t Look Now any good, anyone who has it or has seen it? Also, I tried googling reviews and may have been spoiled with an image on who wears the red coat. Is that a dealbreaker?

It's really good, I saw it for the first time in the last year on 4K. It's a really good 4K and a really good movie that captures atmosphere like few others.

 

On another note I had Top Gun sitting on my shelf and finally got to watch it, might be the best transfer I've seen, except for one part when Maverick is leaving Viper's house it goes all smudgy for a few seconds.
