Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

Yeah it's very much in the vein of the Fairbanks classics & it's a little weird to see Lancaster in such a boisterous role, and even more surreal to see a guy as big as Lancaster do all the acrobatic stuff, but of course that's what he used to do before he made it in Hollywood. They do have to shoeh...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Anime section is longer, the Blue Leaves fight is longer, other scenes like the "car boot" one at the end is longer, the Japanese cut of Kill Bill is significantly different imo and I'll never purchase this title in HD until it's available.

Re: Is BD the worst thing that has happened to cinema recent

The biggest appreciable improvement in quality that will come with 4K imo is the improved color space (rec 2020), it should hopefully eliminate all the banding issues that plagues standard Blu-ray. It'll particulary make a big difference to animation on home video.

Re: Is BD the worst thing that has happened to cinema recent

You do know that Criterion has the whole Zatoichi set (well minus the last film and the TV series) on BD? Yup, I own it! That's why I used past tense (ie they wanted to see it, as in before it came out), I know it wasn't very clear though the way I stated it! :D I think it was mentioned here(I know...

I assume they're doing it for conservation purposes? Are there no boutique labels in Japan at all or is it mostly studio distributors?

I was wondering if someone would take my words more seriously than intended :D And I knew you'd take my post more seriously than it was intended. ;) :D My argument was not that BD is evil and should never (have) come out. Of course development is inevitable, and that's a good thing. I'd rather watc...

Sorry but this topic is more than a bit silly Hung, you think this is much different to when DVD took over from LaserDisc?

Re: Master's Top 10 Hollywood/English Films from 1930 to 201

I assume much like with The Manchurian Candidate these first "proper" eastern martial arts fight sequences in the 60s made it into these films because either the main stars or someone in the cast/crew was a student of someone or just practising generic martial arts to keep fit. I know they taught Ju...

Not sure Mark's all that interested in being a mod anywhere tbh Mo, if he was he'd probably be a mod here by now!

I'm not sure if I ever joined the kfc forums, but I'll also contribute some cash once a donations page gets set up. I might even sign up once that's up & running again! :D

Re: Master's Top 10 Hollywood/English Films from 1930 to 201

Yeah it's just crazy to think a guy like Flynn with the kind of work he was doing could be washed up physically by his early 40s! Fairbanks declined around the same age as well, although most put that down to his smoking habit. I guess there was just something about the physical filmmaking combined ...

Re: Master's Top 10 Hollywood/English Films from 1930 to 201

He was a bit of a wreck physically even by the early 40s when he couldn't fight in WW2 because he failed the physical (probably another reason his appeal waned post-war) but he didn't really pile on the pounds properly until the early 50s, if you look at him in films like New Adventures of Don Juan ...

Re: Master's Top 10 Hollywood/English Films from 1930 to 201

Flynn did fancy himself a fighter, though I have read he was not always successful in his bar fights. Yeah he was a legendary bruiser, very quick to stir up trouble in bars, even lesbian bars! There's a story that he got punched out by a lesbian when he caught her dancing with his girlfriend and ca...

I don't think they're supposed to be dying from blood loss, but rather choking on the flow of blood. Still complete BS either way.
