I like the French art or Italian art.
The Italian art is givin' me SUSPIRIA vibes.
A couple more reviews for Deep Red 4K:
Super stoked for Shock - hope it gets a US release.
It is a dual territory US & UK release.
Fantastic - you keep bringing me good news!
It's funny, I have an old DVD rip of the Blue Underground release that has been sitting on my bedside table for quite a while out of pure laziness (not making it back into the personal inventory) - so I see it almost every day out of the corner of my eye. I revisited it a while back and definitely enjoyed it. I was curious if/when this would make it to Blu and here we are!
The Hills Have Eyes 4K review with screen comparisons: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film10/blu-ray_review_157/the_hills_have_eyes_4K_UHD.htm
Stronger detail, but it's certainly darker.
Yeah, this is an "issue" with a lot of older movies, given the HDR treatment.
They seem to make it darker, so the bright parts looks VERY bright in comparison.
It's can become annoying (like Dead and Buried). I don't want to sit in a batcave to watch these dark scenes on these UHD:s.
Especially when you have a VERY dark scene, and then a lamp or other bright object appears on screen, which almost burns you eyes out.
My vision isn't what it used to be, so this can give me headaches at times.
It's very hit and miss. Some look amazing (Zombie and House by the Cemetery etc.), and some I just watch in 10 bit SDR (which is possible on my Panasonic 820 player), to keep the better colors.
I'd rather just have 10bit colors in SDR, for old movies (like The Good , Bad and the Ugly UHD), as it's often can look artificial, when they go over the top with the HDR.
Finally sat down to watch the Deep Red UHD, and it looked amazing.
This and Suspiria is (too me) the best looking Argento movies on UHD at the moment.
HDR on older movies can be very hit or miss, as mentioned above, but the use of Dolby Vision on this one felt very natural, instead of going over the top. Excellent colors.
This was a worthy upgrade.
I was excited that my Death Screams/Snake Girl and the Silver Haired Witch had finally shipped from Diabolik until I checked my mail on Friday to see that my packaged that was marked as delivered was nowhere to be found. I've been on the phone with the post office and it sounds like the mailman might've delivered it to a wrong address. That's $60 well spent on a gift to some random people somewhere. Hopefully I can get reimbursed at least if they can't find it. I was going to contact Diabolik, but that's really not their problem I guess. I've been having bad luck getting things delivered lately.
Blu-ray.com reviews Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge: Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge Blu-ray
Mondo Digital reviews Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge: Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge (mondo-digital.com)
I would not consider the presence of Pauly Shore a cause for optimism.
I received Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge from Diabolik today. The "SHOPPING will never be the same again!" sticker on the front cover was a nice touch.
I'm just thrilled that this got the Deluxe treatment from Arrow, with the hard chipboard box, and multiple cuts of the film on 2 discs. I'll dig into them later tonight.
And there is a commentary track with Amanda Reyes?!? How did I overlook that? I love listening to her commentary tracks, always tons of info and never a silent moment.
There was also an insert card in the case for the upcoming Hell High release, which I'm also ecstatic for... thank you Arrow!
I had to laugh at this line: "...and very nice color saturation with that unavoidable '89 emphasis on salmon and turquoise."
I mean - the current movies NOW fall in that trap as well - along with algae green and urine yellow!
Phenomena 4K UHD is now listed at the Arrow UK store, in 3 variants:
Deadly Games (1982) is also up for pre-order at Diabolik in 2 cover variants:
The 2nd is listed as:
It's a "UK" exclusive at the Arrow shop: https://www.arrowfilms.com/blu-ray/...store-exclusive-limited-edition/13483732.html
So I would assume this is like the Death Screams release, which had 2 cover variants for both the US & UK.
Finally, Arrow has their release of Don't Go in the House out on February 7th, with two cover variants:
Really digging the art by Christopher Shy:
I'm getting killed with all these releases. It was nice to see that shipping was only £8.00 for the three titles I pre-ordered. I had £15.00 of credit which I was able to use which helped as well.
Witch PHENOMENA to choose?????? I love them all. I think Arte Originale is my pick.
You could just buy all of them.
