There we go
Take my money.
The La Collera del vento BR arived today.
It has German and Spanish audio, no subs, runs for 101 min.
Wonder whose idea that was (having no subs on it). Maybe a sign as to how many Spaniards buy discs here? ;))
- The Wind’s Anger opens with an assassination outside a church, accompanied by a brass band, and it ends with a scene onboard a train.
Of the three versions I have only the BR stays loyal to this, showing both the opening and the ending of the film. The Grindhouse DVD has cut the ending, and the Italian DVD has cut the opening,
The only way to watch this film for me has so far been first to watch the Grindhouse and then the Italian. I had high hopes that the BR would put an end to this, with one disc to rule them all. But it does not, unless you are able to follow the story with the German or the Spanish audio, and I¨m not, And that’s the reason for my slight disappointment.
I dont think it¨s terrible though. The BR looks great, it easily has the best picture quality of the three, and it’s the version you want. So hereafter first the Grindhouse and thereafter the BR with Spanish audio for me.
What would everyone say were the top 5 best and must have bluray releases of 2020?
Here’s my top 5 Sebastian
- Massacre Time (Explosive Media)
- The Specialists (Eureka! Classics)
- Fort Yuma Gold (Japan release)
- The Hills Run Red (Explosive Media)
- Johnny Oro (White Pearl)
UHD Details for GBU
Looks like the standard blu-ray that comes with it is just the crappy 2017 Kino US Cut.
added to the db. Looking forward to the commentary by Lee
Nice. Looking forward to picking this one up.
Scalps is coming in France
Here are some updates

So will the theatrical actually be the original theatrical cut this time or just their cut they included on the last “theatrical cut” BD?
And I assume the colors will still be modified from the already fucked up master and not made completely new regardless of which option wins.
I guess maybe I have just given up. This film will probably never get the release it deserves.
EDIT: Oh yeah and how about including (as deleted scenes) those missing scenes that are present on the Italian release prints? The full beating scene and some other pieces.
Kino still think the 1998 MGM cut is what was shown theatrically. There’s no helping them now.
No they will use a 35 mm master of the theatrical version provided by fans:
Actually I prefer the longer cut, minus the “cave scene” of course (and at best minus 2 other short scenes).
Those 2 guys Jordan Krug and Benji Heran have also 35 mm IB copies of the original Italian version, which is yet not released in that form on any DVD or Blu, not in Italy, not in the rest of the world. Apart from the complete torture scene the differences are of minor imortance though, but still there were so many releases of GBU, and the original ones (both Italian and International version) never made it due to the confused situation with the master reels.
This could be the final specs
“This release will ONLY include the superior Theatrical Cut. The main reason we acquired the film in 2017 was to finally release the 162-Minute cut on Blu-ray, making it available for the first time in HD. And now we’re happy to say that the preferred cut of this masterpiece will be released on 4KUHD this April.”
"Changes from the original announcement, no extended cut, removed two commentaries recorded for the extended cut, restored the theatrical cut, restored the 2.0 mono audio and added the newly restored German trailer. "
