That's because they often use the original poster art. Well, it depends on the studio, but Toei usually does.

Great movie. :) Fantastic soundtrack. Make sure you'll listen to the original Japanese voices, of course...

AFAIK the UK BD contains real subtitles for the Japanese track and not dubtitles (unlike the US BD) :)

Yeah I bought them close to when they came out. It's just a coincidence that all three of those happened to be on Criterion. I like the look of the Criterion Videodrome as it looks like a VHS. Now Criterion does have Videodrome on BD. The other two are OOP and no BD.

I remember watching The Crimson Pirate as a kid. I don't remember all that much about it, except that I loved it, and the scene where he was flipping between a bunch of bars attached to a wall...

I'm a fan of Burt Lancaster and old Hollywood pirate films so I think I'll like it. A friend over at another forum said Lancaster does overact in it, but I would expect that. Lancaster was quite the gymnast in his early days (reminds me someday I should get Trapeze.)

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 shoehorn in a lot of pole swinging to take advantage of his trapeze skills! :D

The Red Silk Gambler (Teruo Ishii, 1972)

The Japanese BD has some exclusive extras, like audio commentary by Refn and a Japanese interview. The Japanese subs on the extras seem terrible, though. When Refn says he loves Vengeance is Mine the subs say "I like great Japanese movies" and when he says he recently watched Tokyo Drifter (the Suzuki film) the subs say "Tokyo Drifter" in katakana English rather than using the film's Japanese title, which is Tokyo Nagaremono. Japanese audiences wouldn't even know what film he's talking about since a) the film has never been distributed in Japan as "Tokyo Drifter" and b) "Tokyo Drifter" is the title of the 2011 film by Tetsuaki Matsue. Odd that they spend money to create new extras but then they don't even bother making comprehensible subs for them.

I saw that the film was on there. Good bonus. Good to hear that it might be better than the first. I love surprise movies when you buy a movie (Criterion has these now and then.) Once in a while I buy a film for the "surprise film."

I should be getting one myself soon, don't really see the point in ordering it until I actually make time to play my next game. Hopefully it'll drop in price for me in the next couple of months! :D

Did you go with the MSI GAMING or ASUS STRIX cards by any chance Yi? My PC's a silent build so they're the only ones I'm looking at at the moment (got an ASUS 670 DirectCU2 and it's very quiet, thinking of trying the MSI out this time round though).

I went for the MSI gaming one. Not sure exactly WHICH one, because I believe they have a few, so I wqs stumped about all the choices, but a recent local article recommended the MSI, and I just used their link to get to that MSI, and just hope it's ok. I'm not a huge PC gamer, but I did want to take advantage of the MGS deal because the PC version will have an option for the Japanese voices included...
