Someone on the Blu-ray forum said the cover for the Crimson Kimono was one of the five best covers he'd ever seen for a Blu-ray. Can the death of Net Neutrality somehow result in that forum being inaccessible so I don't keep touching the plate that is hot?

That someone must have been locked in a room with Redman and a loaded firearm.

Artwork is based on Belgian poster. It's definitely better than US poster. Italian posters are always unique.

Now that Belgian poster is beautiful. The TT cover looks like they literally Xeroxed it in black and white.

That top tagline on the American poster is incredible and better than the actual movie

September titles announced at HTF, arriving 9/19:

Beneath the 12-Mile Reef (1953) (Fox)
Gun Fury (3D) (1953) (Sony)
Hour of the Gun (1967) (MGM)
Lawman (1971) (MGM)
September (1987) (MGM)


September is a pass for me (not a film I'll rewatch), while Gun Fury is a blind buy because of being vintage 3D. The other three go on the "need to see first" list.

I've actually seen all of these and they are all forgettable and absolutely not worth $30 a pop (or $25/20 on sale)

TT's title announcements have been awful lately even for Twilight Time. Olive has more exciting announcements!

Switch out "American" for "French" and you could have a lurid poster tagline for Hiroshima Mon Amour.

I found some screenshots from How To Steal A Million:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p ... stcount=63
http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/cont ... -A-Million

They looked a bit peculiar to me (color wise), so I tried to directly compare with some from the Czech Bluray:
(not exact shots):

http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/213632


As you see, the TT is more on the pale-yellowish/greenish side, and the czech on the redish side.
I don't know what is more accurate, but my personal preference is the czech bluray.
The TT colors look a bit sickly to me.. :-k

The TT looks more like I remember it when seen in the theater. The faces look overly ruddy (red) on the Czech edition to me.

The Czech edition shows heavy grain and pink color (good sign of *color fading*, especially old prints). I'm guessing it's a direct scan off of a 35mm print, without any meaningful digital restoration. TT is superior.

Play Dirty's already out in the UK. Wild Bill and Castille are films that KL should and would have put out for less. Will confess to never having heard of Pirates, but a cursory Google search doesn't convince me I'm missing much

I'm having Wild Bill. Hoping for but not expecting a new transfer. This'll do until a UK company decides to do something with it.

Has Born Yesterday already sold out? That is the second Sony title after Major Dundee that went OOP and I regret not buying! Let's hope Indicator or another UK label will release those shortly.
