digital fix review of Heaven's Gate
The reviewer says the extras are much better than the Criterion, though the movie had to be cut by 59 seconds.

bluraydefinition on "A Hard Day's Night"

Same source as the Criterion, both audio and video, slightly differing and less extras though.

Just curious if any one has had problems playing Second Sight's Possession blu-ray? I recall hearing reports of people with all-region Sony, Panasonic and Sharp players having issues when this was first released.

Hmmm. Maybe it would be better to ask if anyone's all-region player has not had issues with Second Sight's Possession?

I have a region-free Insignia player. Has anyone tried watching Possession on that kind of player?

Does anyone know why Amazon UK doesn't sell the Second Sight The Long Riders blu-ray? It's only for sale by Fulfilled by Amazon sellers & thus Amazon won't ship it to the US.

The same is true of Argento's Tenebrae (Arrow Blu Ray). I would like to know the reason as well.

DVDactive review of "Taxi" blu-ray, which they didn't put as much effort into the bonus features...

You can probably bypass that going trough a link from Blu-ray.com or dvdbeaver. It's the same opposite, ordering from US to Europe, but using Blu-ray com or a DVDBeaver link you get the seller Amazon, and not "fullfilled by amazon" links! So get the title from Blu-ray.com, press the "buy now" link. I think it should work!

Isn't Arrow's Tenebrae (or at least the good one) still a Zavvi exclusive?

bluraydefinition review of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre"

So it looks like "Making Grandpa" was not carried over on this edition, yet it is available on the US 40th Anniversary release.

I read somewhere (I don't remember exactly the thread but it was on blu-ray.com forum) that the US release of the x4 restoration of the Texas Chainsaw had a pressing problem with the disk and that's what a good news that the UK release didn't have this problem.
Do you know where I could find more info about this? Can I order the US disk now ?

Second Sight appear to be releasing a 30th anniversary edition of Absolute Beginners on BluRay and DVD. There's a short review in Sight and Sound this month that seems fair on the film's ambition and achievement, describing it as ultimately falling apart but pointing out that it is as much about the eighties as the fifties, praising the opening tracking shot and arguing that there's much to enjoy and be impressed by if you look at it as a series of five minute segments.

Given the sterling work the BFI did on Revolution, I had hoped they'd be releasing Absolute Beginners too but you can't have everything.

I'd argue that the three films that destroyed Goldcrest (The Mission being the third) are all highly underrated (even if they're not completely successful) but I imagine some people might think I was a bit mad to do so.

I'm fond of Absolute Beginners but it's an odd bird. It has a weird generation gap thing going on too. Almost every actor over thirty is hamming it up, whilst the younger cast are all wooden. Visually interesting with plenty of good music, though.

That's a really interesting observation and an accurate one too. I hadn't really thought of it before. On reflection, I suspect the hamming it up might be a deliberate stylistic choice, but I'm not so sure about the woodenness.
