    I loved Clifford as a kid but when I revisited it several years ago I didn't find it nearly as entertaining. I'll probably pick it up anyway though...

    This movie is so bad it's good. Haven't seen this since the vhs heyday. For some reason I though there would be a bunch of sequels to follow.

    What up with the new Scorpion remasters?
    Some of them are improvements, like Death Wish 3, but some of them is worse, with less fine details and grain.

    (just look at the beer cans)

    Sure the contrast is better. The SF disc is a bit sharpened, but the text that is readable on the SF disc, is just blurry to hell on the new transfer.

    Mondo review:
    " and minute details pop more on textures like fabric and metal.

    Bullshit!

    Same with Death Warrant.

    Deathwish 3, Clifford, and The Masque of the Red Death are up for pre order at Ronin now.



    Steel 76 has me concerned. :( Should I buy any of these?

    Is the Delta Force (Scorpion) an improvement over the MGM Blu? On caps-a-holic MGM looks just like the Arrow ... to me anyways.

    Judging by the screen caps Steel posted I'd be cautious.

    I was hoping Death Wish 3 would be an improvement over the original Blu release. It must be, no?

    Masque should be delivered tomorrow. It looks like my kind of trash. I'll probably be saving it for an October viewing.

    Hard to say after seeing those caps Steel posted. Does Death Wish 3 have a release elsewhere?

    There was a whole hullabaloo about red push on Blu-ray.com about Death Wish 3. I was hoping it wouldn't be too bad but, after skipping through the disc last night, there really is a red push and it's distracting. I guess I could always turn the color down in my settings but I shouldn't have to do that. Delta Force had a red push as well but on that disc it was mostly the color red on objects, not people's faces. Don't know what's going on here.

    Also read that over there. One person had a real problem with it, the rest were on the other side.

    I don't know, seems like it's there from the couple of pictures I've seen. As far as in motion, that's another thing. How bad is it really? Either way, can't deny it's there.

    They mentioned that they have another release coming in the next week or so, but it's a new release movie (2019).

    Do you mean the woman on the Deja Vu cover, or the fact that it's Demi Moore's ass on the infamous I Spit On Your Grave poster?
