2013's high profile HD releases

Unread postby bradavon » 02 Aug 2013, 15:34

Hey guys,

Long time no visit.

I've not kept myself abreast of the high profile releases the past few months. Can someone quickly post what they've been? I appreciate it's a vague question. I've not bought many blu-rays for some time now. I want to get back into films, something I used to spend a lot of time doing.

In case anyone is wondering why I've been absent. In brief I had a girlfriend for the past year and that took up most of my time.

Thanks guys. I'll reply properly later.

Bruce Lee, Once Upon a Time in China and Iron Monkey are probably the only Asian films I'd upgrade I don't already own. I assume those are all still piss poor releases? I'll reply properly with Western stuff later on.

Hard Target Mark, seriously? Don't you remember I'm not a fan :D. Good shout for the fans though.

Ref Bruce Lee it looked like all our prayers were answered with what was looking like a definitive release of his Asian movies from Shout!...proper subs,original audio etc....but somewhere in the process it's turned the blu-rays are actually upscales :banghead: sadly for me my set had been despatched early before news broke..so i'm saddled with it currently,it's sitting here unopened hoping there'll be a replacement programme set up.

FFS!

It looks like I'll be keeping my HKLs for a while yet. I'm perfectly happy with them, so I want proper HD releases if I'm going to go to the expense of replacing them. Thanks.

Any word on a decent The Killer and Hard Boiled releases? I forgot about those two. I assume the only In the Mood for Love is still the Criterion? I want that too but Criterions are pricey.

As for Western. Just the high profile releases or re-releases from the past few months I suppose. Just start naming a few. I've not kept up to date, so don't know where to start with suggestions really. Has anything stood out as "wow finally this American/British" classic has finally been released?

Thanks

I have no idea what you like... why don't you give us a clue as to the kind of stuff you're looking for?
