i’m wondering when somebody will take the japanese Il Mercenario DVD and release an awesome bootleg from that material. actually i’d like to see wild east do that. no wait, actually i want MGM to fuckin finally do that :slight_smile:
or Koch Media…


(Søren) #7

Uh yes. Il Mercenario is definitely missed on official dvd outside of Japan. My favourite spaghetti. I would rather want a nice Koch Media release than a barebones release from MGM though.

These global dvd’s what are the quality like because they are quite expensive for bootlegs?


(Silver) #9

I only have “His Life Is Mine” from them at the moment, but the quality is better than i thought it would be, and there are definitely more titles that i want. They are quite pricey though. I got mine from Xploited Cinema, they have all or most of them at $19.99 each.


(ENNIOO) #10

HIS LIFE IS MINE appears to be one of the few GLOBAL RELEASES which is in 2.35 widescreen, as I noticed alot of the newer release’s are in FULLSCREEN or 1.85 widescreen.


(Silver) #11

Ah…that’s interesting to know. I had just assumed they would all be of a similar quality!


(Søren) #12

Here’s a list:

His Life is Mine -> 2.35:1 (Non-anamorphic)
And Now Make Peace With God -> 4:3
Fedra West -> 2.35:1 (Anamorphic)
Kid Terror Of The West -> 1.85:1 (Non-anamorphic)
Man Called Invincible -> 2.35:1 (Non-anamorphic)
They Call Him Veritas/Chapaqua’s Gold -> both 4:3
The Moment to Kill -> 1.85 (Non-anamorphic)
Brother Outlaw -> 4:3
Finders Killers -> 4:3

All in all the picture quality is more than acceptable. The only rotten apple in the bunch is Fedra West which looks very worn. His Life is Mine and Man Called Invincible are the two ‘best’ looking of the lot.


(Silvanito) #13

Speaking of Kid Terror Of The West, a spaghetti with children in many leding roles, is that a good/entertaining film or just stupid?

Anybody seen it?

Wouldn’t have seen it if it hadn’t been a spaghetti. Not as bad as I thought though, but you got to accept that what you are watching is mainly a movie made for kids. And as such it was failry entertaining. Not the worst spaghetti western I’ve seen by far.

could someone add those dvd infos to the database? maybe with cover images, region info yada yada…

Does this disc actually work like it should for you? Atleast my copy works like a 1.85:1 letterboxed disc, I suppose there’s something missing or done incorrectly so the player doesn’t recognize it as anamorphic. I can just stretch it with my TV though, so there’s no problems.


(ENNIOO) #17

My friends copy of FEDRA WEST (Global video) is in 1.85 widescreen.


(Søren) #18

Pretty sure it was 2.35:1 and not 1.85:1… Watched it not many days ago. Can’t remember if my dvd player recognized it as anamorphic or if I ‘forced’ it. Will take a look tonight.


(Søren) #19

Just checked. Fedra West IS 2.35:1 Anamorphic. And as my dvd-player always defaults to widescreen (I have to force it out of it when watching a full screen or non-anamorphic movie) I haven’t had any problems with the disc.


(Sundance) #20

You have a widescreen TV in a 16:9 mode? That would explain a lot, because if that is the case, then it doesn’t matter if the disc is really working properly anamorphic or not.
Anyways, I claim it isn’t a proper anamorphic disc. ;D It has been done correctly (the image on the disc is stretched vertically) but the stuff is missing which makes the player… or tv?!.. recognize it as anamorphic.

I checked now again and my disc is definitely letterboxed 1.85:1.
When I watch anamorphic discs, the widescreen tv and dvd player automatically just stretch the image horizontally as they are supposed to (no matter what mode my TV is on, although I always have it on “auto”), and tell me it is “WIDE”. But this disc works exactly like a letterboxed 1.85:1… the TV in “auto” mode zooms the image to fill the entire screen (making the aspect ratio remain 1.85:1) .
If I put my the TV to 16:9, then the aspect ratio is correct 2.35:1 because 16:9 mode just stretches horizontally no matter what kind of image (anamorphic, non-anamorphic, fullscreen).

The disc is almost a proper 2.35:1 anamorphic but one small detail is missing. I think. I’m quite certain. ;D
There won’t be any problems with widescreen TVs. But I do not know if people with regular TVs can see it correctly… maybe by changing the player to think that the TV is 16:9 widescreen when it is not?
