No interest now.

TGTBATU will be another fuck up and the European editions of the other two are (apparently) ideal.

I'll wait for reviews. No point in buying the boxset IMO. If they've somehow managed to find a genuine Mono track and then switch to a downmix for the extended scenes or something, I can live with the extended version. Not ideal but there you go (I'll still keep the theatrical cut, maybe make my own Combo pack if it ever gets seperately released in the US).

Fox Connect website wrote:Specs and audio for all 3 films:
**Commentary on all three films
**Behind-the-scenes interviews with cast and crew including Clint Eastwood
**Deleted Scenes and much more!

Disc 1: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Mono, Spanish Mono, French DTS 5.1,
Disc 2: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Mono, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1,
Disc 3: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Dolby Digital 1.0, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1, French DTS 5.1
http://www.foxconnect.com/the-man-with- ... ilogy.html

Why say DD1.0 for TGTBATU but Mono for the other two? I know they mean the same thing but still...

It's a significantly longer film than the other two so it sounds to me like they've gone with LPCM Mono for the first two and only a lossy DD1.0 track for TGTBTU, but hey look on the bright side: At least illiterate Spaniards, Mexicans, Frenchmen, & French-Canadians who live in the US but can't speak a word of English get to enjoy this release! :roll:

It seems TGTBATU will also be released in a normal Amaray case. No expensive Steelbook for me.

The new remaster of TGTBATU looks really nice IMO, rather yellow but was that it how it originally looked? I dont know :?
Definitely upgrading based on the transfer at least which has amazing detail.

Pray for Death is a fave among Sho Kosugi fans, but if you're not already a fan, I'd approach with caution, especially if it's pricey. I've seen it uncut; it's not a bad martial arts-revenge flick, though I've never been a fan of Kosugi's oeuvre. I would suggest trying to find a watchable copy online before taking the plunge.
