I Just Bought … (the SW Shopping Diary)

Don’t know anything about them … do they have a bad reputation regarding other releases ?
The only other I have is their Navajo Joe release, which also features the hilarious antics of Eric Zaldivar on the bonus features. This time dressed in a hairy chest nude suit, as a clever tribute to Burt Reynolds’ famous centrefold which was actually a self deprecating sendup, so no need to make a joke about a joke, eh Eric ?

Well, as a collector I appreciate what they do. But 9 times out of 10, another label has already released the same title and done a much better job.


(Søren) #2944

Hmmm. 9 times out of 10 ? I don’t think that’s true. 88 Films release a lot of what e.g. Code Red has already released but the releases are mostly just as good. They have a bad reputation especially in UK it seems ironically but I must say that I enjoy their releases. Mostly we are talking about identical transfers and the extras well they always comes second for me.

They do good and not all they have released have been topped or even released by other companies. That’s not to say that better releases sometimes comes out subsequently but that’s the curse of double dipping taking effect and that afflicts every company.

It’s a shame they’re UK based, otherwise they wouldn’t have to release so many cut titles. Same with Shameless Entertainment. Slaves to the BBFC :neutral_face:


#2946

As I think you mentioned before, Dean … on ’Navajo Joe’ the horse tripping is cut on the feature, but not in trailer !!! Can’t some of the companies just stand up to and challenge these ridiculous rules - There’s much nastier stuff out there which sneaks past, in the name of ‘ART’ … and as films on DVD and BD can now be easily sourced from all parts of the world, doesn’t that make the BBFC’s role redundant. It’s fucking, ‘Mary Whitehouse Syndrome’ … for readers outside the UK, the afore mentioned Whitehouse was an ancient old biddy, who became famous for protesting and campaigning over just about everything she deemed unwholesome in TV, Cinema, Theatre, Literature.
Mary (my opinion is more important than anyone else’s) Whitehouse … a real throwback to the Victorian era, with as huge an ego and appetite for appearing on TV as any contemporary reality TV star.

What I find more offensive than any animal cruelty, is people pretending it never happened by cutting it and trying to pull the wool over our eyes.

As the late David Hess said, censorship stops people from being prepared for what’s actually out there in the real world.

(Sebastian) #2951

not according to Koch website, dont have the disc yet so I cannot confirm


(Søren) #2952

The Koch Media website isn’t a 100% trustworthy though so hope springs eternal :slight_smile:


(The Man With a Name) #2953

All I have is a DVD-R of the old Fletcher tape, so I really hope the English audio is included on this release.


#2954

There’s an English language fandub based on the Spanish DVD, but the running time is only 73 mins - IMDB says the RT is 88 minutes.


(Søren) #2955

Just got Giubbe rosse. Not English-friendly but it at least has got Italian subs.

Although ofdb.de claims it has the English dub:

But I think that’s a typo.

I’m finally getting around to ordering some stuff that’s been on my wishlist for literally years. Ordered the Kino Lorber Navajo Joe and the Blue Underground Get Mean. Best part will be watching and hearing Tony Anthony talk about the Stranger films as I am a really big fan of those, especially the minimalist first Stranger film: “A Stranger in Town”. The price tag of the Sartana box set still has me procrastinating…


(Phil H) #2958

Think of it terms of cost per film and it doesn’t sound nearly so bad.


(Sebastian) #2959

yea it’s worth every penny, think of the cost of the pain and sorrow of your mind knowing that you didn’t get it when you could’ve :))


(YourPallbearer) #2960

That’s something Burt said post-feeling embarrassed about the shoot. Something I’m familiar with, I realize I went overboard with the The Mercenary feature (and said so on the much more sober easter egg on the same disc) but, thankfully, some folks liked it.


#2961

If you’d been commenting on ‘National Lampoon’s Animal House’ or ‘Porky’s’, your approach would be perfect.

The impression made was that you don’t really like or have much respect for either film, and therefore it suggests those watching should share that point of view - and I’m guessing that was not your intention.


#2962

Just arrived.
Was worried for a moment when I didn’t see English subtitles on the cover or the menu. Wonder why they hide them.
