I Just Bought … (the SW Shopping Diary)


#2902

The Arrow Box Set is Here, Trade Your Bootlegs for Some Blu-rays.

The Sartana Collection - bought mine this morning at HMV, same price £49.99 … so no other treats for me for a while :smiley: but I just have a feeling these babies are gonna sell out fast … and this is a historic moment for we pastafarians - Just gotta decide which order to watch them in.

Those reverse sleeves look pretty darn tasty - Viva Sartana !!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#2904

Don’t Ireland use euros? :scream:


(Phil H) #2905

Apparently mine has been delivered and is waiting for me when I get home from work. :sunglasses:


#2906

Apparently mine’s been handed to a neighbour. They better look after it until I get home.


#2907

They do … I’m in the north which is part of the UK (technically) :rofl:


#2908

I see. Every day’s a school day! :grinning:


(Søren) #2909

Nice to see that you’ve instantly gone for the reversible covers. I will do the same when the time comes.


(The Man With a Name) #2910

Mine arrived today. I’m going to flip the covers, too. Unfortunately Søren still has to pay since it wasn’t £43. :smile:

Just finished watching number 1, “If You Meet Sartana” … what the hell is going on in this film! It’s crazy … everyone seems to be laughing for no apparent reason - perhaps the Italian dialogue is funnier than the English ?
I’d seen it several times before, but forgotten how all over the place the story is. Anyway … fabulous picture quality and very good original sound - quite a few scratches here and there, which you don’t usually see on modern releases, but compared to the bashed old prints I’d see used as double features in the 1970s, it looks excellent.
Big thanks to the guys at Arrow for making this happen - and I’ll compile my wants list for you later :smiley:
Think I’ll check out George Hilton’s Sartana next.


(Søren) #2912

Sorry about that one. Will have to have a serious word with Mr. Amazon :slight_smile:

Actually it is very seldom that the final price at Amazon isn’t 10-20% lower than the Arrow asking price.


(Søren) #2913

It is certainly more Italian and my dub of choice. These are spaghettis and should be enjoyed as such :slight_smile:


#2914

Enjoyed it thoroughly - it just didn’t make a lot of sense :rofl:


#2915

The sooner you tell yourself to forget about the ‘plots’ to these films and just enjoy what you’re seeing, the better. One of the best decisions I ever made :smile:


#2916

PS: The infamous sandpit has never looked lovelier ! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#2917

It would’ve been cool to have the Italian titles as an option, like their release of Preparati la bara.

I hope Berger’s laugh is less annoying in Italian.


(Jonny Powers) #2918

I’d gotten my set back on the 13th, watched the first 2 films with commentary; the first track was ok, but the one for the second was much more engaging


(The Man With a Name) #2919

Never had any issues with the English dub for Sartana. The first movie is still my favourite, as well. I never thought it was difficult to follow.


(The Man With a Name) #2920

What we need now is for Arrow to release an unofficial Sartana collection with Sartana Does Not Forgive and Sartana Kills Them All.

From DiabolikDVD?
