[Blu-ray] Latest and Upcoming Releases


(Nick) #2669

Ooo super excited. Hopefully they have a print thats grungy and dinged up. The original Strangers Gundown US dvd had the perfect amount of grime to suit the movie.


(Lonedrifter) #2670

Not sure if this has been brought up

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Specialists-Blu-ray/242273/


(The Man With a Name) #2671

I hope The Specialists Blu-ray has the full English dub!


#2672

I wonder if it exists. Hopefully the dub with Italian inserts at the very least.


#2673

Interesting. I do have the French Blu Ray/DVD Combo, but am completely willing to double dip as long the Italian audio with translated subtitles is included. Thanks for the tip.


(Søren) #2674

In either case its probably not going to beat the French UHD with the Italian and French dub and English subs. Not going to get better in my book.


#2675

You’re probably right, as this is Kino we’re talking about.


#2676

Same. It’s a bit strange though considering I don’t even like this movie :laughing:

Same.

The Grand Duel comparison

Mill Creek:

Arrow:


#2678

Definitely prefer the Mill Creek one, but seeing how it’s going for £60 on Amazon I’ll happily stick with the Arrow version.


(Novecento) #2679

Surely French audio with subs would be preferable for this particular release?


(The Man With a Name) #2680

It’s only a few quid on eBay.


#2681

I’ve always seen it as an Italian film as the original title, original language, director, screenwriters, composer, and a good bit of the cast are Italian, but it’s certainly an Italian/French co-production with the participation of Johnny Hallyday, Francoise Fabian, and Serge Marquand. That’s just me though :grin:


#2682

I was at Sheffield Horror Con today and one of the vendors had a SW section, including this release and a few Wild East DVD’s.


(kevenz) #2683

Really ? it’s only $4 brand new on amazon canada here

converted to GBP equals £2,30 for two movies on blu ray.

It’s so cheap :slight_smile:


(Novecento) #2684

This and Cemetery Without Crosses are the two where I really insist on French audio. In this case , I suppose it is only because of the leads, but in the case of the latter we also have a French director, etc. I remember when Arrow couldn’t get the rights to the French audio of Cemetery Without Crosses they made some claim about it being originally Italian anyway - I lost a little bit of respect for an otherwise stellar outfit then :frowning: . Back to The Specialists, hopefully we’ll have a choice of French, Italian and English.


#2685

I can totally understand that. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious as to what the French audio track was like, but given the very Italian feel and atmosphere the film gives off, I completely adore the film. From other releases I’ve seen of the film, I don’t recall ever seeing a French audio on any of them.

I hope this didn’t completely sour you on ever buying from Arrow again as they do a great job with every title they acquire.

We’ll know eventually which audio Kino will pick, it’ll depend on the condition most likely.


(Søren) #2686

The German Anolis release which is the only other release I have had of the movie also contained the French dub.


(Novecento) #2687

Yes - that’s the one I have.


#2688

Probably should have done a bit more legwork :laughing: I’ll deffo add the Mill Creek blu to my shopping list now, thanks man.
