Barquero Coming to Blu-ray! (US)

Kino Lorber Studio Classics announced that Barquero will be coming to blu-ray in the United States this coming April.  No further details are currently available.  Kino recently released Sabata on blu here in the US.
 
If you can't wait until April, Barquero is available on blu-ray in Australia, and is fully compatible with US players (and looks great!).  The price is about double that of what I am sure the US disc will cost.
 
2015 is already looking like a great blu-ray year!

25 Years...




This week, we remember Lee Van Cleef, on what has been 25 years since his passing. 

I plan on celebrating LVC by watching one of his favorite films, El Condor.  How do you honor "The Best of The Bad"?

Blu-ray Update: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly - Corrected Mono



The much maligned 4k restoration of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, has now had it's proper original mono soundtrack restored on the new standalone version of the film available now.  It is suspected that future versions of "The Man With No Name" collection will have the updated disc with the correct mono.  Previous versions had a mono downmix of the new 5.1 track.

The image quality still looks like piss.  Literally.

Day of Anger - Blu-ray Update!


Arrow films have released their first trailer for Day of Anger, and the quality of the transfer looks pretty amazing.



 
 
While the complete list of extras have not been announced, per their Indiegogo website, here is what we do know about the release-
Our newly restored edition of Day of Anger will be a 3 disc set (1 Blu-ray, 2 DVDs) AND will include two different versions of the film! We are working hard on finalising the rest of the extras now so expect another announcement about these soon.
 
Looks promising!

Arrow continues an Indiegogo campaign to fund the US expansion, and for a $25 pledge you will receive a Day of Anger blu-ray/DVD combo in February 2015.

Day of Anger Coming to Blu-ray! (US)


Cult label Arrow Video, which up until now was only putting out discs in the UK, is expanding into the US in early 2015, and one of their first titles that will be released is the LVC classic, Day of Anger!
 
Arrow has begun an Indiegogo campaign to fund the US expansion, and for a $25 pledge you will receive a Day of Anger blu-ray/DVD combo in February 2015.
 
For details go here:
 
Extras are unknown at this point, but I have reached out for information.  This title has been long out of print on DVD, and the only current blu-ray version out of Japan is mediocre quality at best (review here).
 
More to come!

Bad Man's River Coming to Blu-Ray! (Spain)


 
Technically, it came out on Sept 11, but I cannot find any reviews.  Based on the specs I have seen, it is Region B locked, and only in Spanish, Italian, and French.

I would be very interested in seeing the quality of the print.  If I find any reviews I will update!

Angel Eyes Re-Edit!

Here is an amusing edit of the scene between Angel Eyes and Stevens from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  It actually starts out pretty creepy but ends with a laugh.

Amazing how a few changes can change the whole scene!
