Interesting and unusual DVD/Blu-Ray releases (News)
Two rarely seen early Kung Fu movies from John Woo are getting a blu-ray release (possibly first time in HD) from Eureka! video in June (new 2k scans plus new commentaries):

Michael Palin's 1982 Comedy 'The Missionary' (from George Harrison's Handmade films) is getting it's first blu-ray release in a new 2k scan on the Indicator label in June. It's never been released in it's theatrical scope ratio on home video until now (only pan & scan previously I think):

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07PPBRVCL/

I cannot believe it's taken 17-years for the anarchic cult-classic '24 Hour Party People' to get an HD upgrade (in June). The cover boasts 4.5 hours of bonus material. I know there are a lot of deleted scenes but will they also be in HD?:

A new blu-ray release of 'Drive' is coming out in May but it's going to include the first physical retail copy of the rescored BBC Radio 1 version. I'm not sure how that's going to work for blu-ray as IIRC the R1 version was created at 25fps:

I'll be removing my preservation of this version of Drive then.

I noticed this on the indicator website and may pick this up. I have pre-ordered the SCUM box set.

I was going to rewatch this a couple of months ago The Mondays are one of my favourite bands of all time.
I was going to purchase the US Version so i'm pretty happy we are getting a release....although the cover artwork is awful Let's hope the bonus deleted scenes are HD so we get the long anticipated TM2YC extended version.

I'll definitely be purchasing this - your preservation is one of my favourite discs. Maybe you could do a remix version where you use some of the tracks from the original and some from the rescore as not all songs worked in the Zane Lowe version.

Oh yeah, it's scheduled to release a few weeks after: https://www.amazon.com/24-Hour-Party-Peo...07NHQ88S5/

^ The artwork is a lot better (based on some original poster art*). I'll be interested to see what bonus content each release has.

* Using this original promotional poster art would have been more fun Big Grin :

I just noticed that the German limited-edition 3-disc blu-ray set of 'Heaven's Gate' (the only release to have both cuts of the film) is selling for just 9.99 Euros (£8.80 / $11.16):

https://www.amazon.de/Heavens-Gate-Direc...0791XV7MP/

I might buy myself a second copy at that price, just to sell in the future Big Grin . That's about a third of the price of the Criterion single disc blu-ray.




Weird Science is getting a new 4K restoration from the o-neg from Arrow Video in July:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07R5554K1/

[Image: 71J6U9nYteL._SX522_.jpg]

It comes with the "Edited-for-TV version of the film (SD only, 95 mins), plus comparison featurette highlighting the alternate dubs and takes" as a bonus, which I know some people will enjoy for the cheesy nostalgia Wink . Plus two other cuts of the film, seamlessly branched.

Here's some news I know SilverWook has been looking forward to.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is finally coming to Blu-ray.  But only for members of the Disney Movie Club.  I ended up joining the club, because why not.

The 6 new 4K/2K scans of films by Dietrich & Sternberg that Criterion earlier put together is getting a limited release on the Indicator label:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Marlene-Dietric...07SSCJZNZ/

The box art is beautiful. Like a 'Yes' album cover. Much better than the plain Criterion art:

[Image: XC3612_flat.jpg]


I think it's going to have much more bonus content, including commentaries and original poster art. I've ordered 2 copies, one to keep, one to sell (it's much cheaper to buy direct from the Indicator website by the way).



Oliver Stone is putting out a new 4K "Final Cut" of The Doors movie next month:

[Image: 81eQ6cPTFbL._SX425_.jpg]

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07RXK39L1/

The original cut and deleted scenes included too. Plus feature length 'When You're Strange' Doc.



A new 3-disc release of 'Oldboy' on the Arrow label looks great:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oldboy-Limited-...07SG7RNHF/

New 4K scan. Feature length making of. 5x commentaries. Music+effects track. Korean of English audio. Deleted scenes. 3-hours of bonus features. It's stuffed.

Oh, this is great news! I picked up a used copy of the 2004 DVD release, but the discs are kind of scratched up and not all of the episodes play. I didn't even realize until now that the version on those discs is slightly edited.
