Regardless, thanks for the reminder the Goryeojang release exists, zedz.

Guess I’ll start reminding of old releases as well what others have posted.

With all due respect, this sort of snotty remark is neither necessary nor welcome. We appreciate news you report -- and we appreciate other people's efforts at reporting (even if they sometimes overlap).

I myself am trying to be careful not to post the same info what someone else has already done, like using the ”Search” function before posting. I can only guess I would get the same ”already posted before” remark and in this case understandably. Guess this is just my assumption.

If a new poster over-exuberantly posts lots of "news" that is not, in fact, not new (and has already not only been posted but discussed), that person will almost certainly get a slap of some sort. The purpose for this is "training" them to be a good forum member in the future. If a veteran (and usually careful) poster accidentally slips up, I would submit that one (a) ignores it, (b) makes a good-natured quip (and then forgets the incident) or (c) sends them a very polite PM. Grumping about the fact that others don't pile on the "offender" (and saying you will deliberately post non-news as news to get even) is churlish. We are supposed to be some semblance of friends here -- and many of us have known each other (virtually speaking) for many many years. Yes, debates (and not only political ones) can get over-heated -- just as in real life. But grumpiness over petty matters is something that can and SHOULD be avoided.

Michael, you knocked some sense into me.

Final time, sorry. Everyone, am I forgiven? [-o<

My job is being the old (just turned 68) codger who does this sort of thing. Just behave from now on! (and keep providing news) ;-)

There's no right space for this as far as I can see, so I think this might be the thread for it. KFA releases classic Korean films on blu ray. So where is the blu ray for Memento Mori? Most of the hits from that era have some kind of blu ray out there, from Barking Dogs Never Bite to Peppermint Candy to the Hong Sang Soo movies (not hits perhaps, but notable films) to Friend to Sorum. Memento Mori––and in fact, the whole Whispering Corridors series, though Memento Mori stands apart from the other films in terms of quality––is conspicuously absent. The Tartan DVD is...sort of okay. It looks grungy, with some rough contrast-boosting, and the image looks horizontally squished a bit. I would say the color is rendered best, and the subtitles seem on-point. But the film has a lot of group shots with lots of characters in the frame, and those are not served well by this disc. This is a movie crying out for better treatment. It's a gorgeous, moving, absorbing film, from an era of Korean movies that will never come again. It should be on blu ray, but I think the rights to the film perhaps do not reside in any similar place to where the other films of that era are owned.
