Police Story 1 & 2: Criterion Collection on blu ray. I'm really stoked about this one, even more than I was about the Bruce Lee Criterion Collection that I bought on blu ray last summer.  Cheers

Police Story Criterion Collection? And Bruce Lee Criterion Collection?? I need to go to the shops more often. How is the video and audio quality?


I've only ever owned the VHS version of Police Story (1985) before, so I know that the blu ray has excellent quality. I love that it includes the original Cantonese audio along with the English dub, so you can appreciate the emotion in the original voice acting. Criterion does their usual excellent quality in restoring these films to their remastered original audio before dubbing and international distribution ruined them for purists. The Bruce Lee collection is a definite must-buy; even though it is 1080p blu ray, they must have remastered them in 4K or something because they can easily pass for 4K movies if you are watching them on a 4K TV.

I saw that on TV when I was a little kid. I remember thinking "wow, a KILLER killer whale!"  Cheers

s**t man, if youíre looking for some real bottom of the barrel stuff check out some of the other Full Moon movies from around that period. Basically up to 1996 they are either old enough to have a charm to them or benefitted from big studio financing via Paramount. In the late 2000s they had new investors from China which at least gave them enough money to make the movies look like...well movies.

But that in between period is filled with some of the most horrible crap you can imagine. Seriously, a high school video production class could have made some better looking things than some of those movies.

Haha Iíve had the DVD of Stiches sitting on my nightstand for a few months now. Iíve seen a truncated version of it in one of Full Moonís clip show movies that puts a few truncated versions of movies together with very little rhyme or reason. From what Iíve seen Iíd rank Stiches above some of the crap Full Moon has put out, but I havenít had the urge to watch the full thing either.

Band has done some great movies Re-Animator (1985) and From Beyond (1986) come to Dolls (1987) comes to mind 'Castle Freak (1995) and so many more the Trancer series etc.. but he's also done movies so bad that i dunno what he was even thinking on putting them out and the films he put out last year during the shut down are a good example of not only out of ideas but a man of desperation even though he no doubt was making some pretty good money on streaming and prolly ordering movies online from him too and merchandise as well. but all that is just guess work of course


but Stiches (2000) was also Dr.  see i forget the name of that film from around that time on how bad it it was!

Slugs (1988) based on the Huston book. A largely unheard of cast, the majority of whom did nothing other than this film in the industry. Some good kills though.

I've read that one and the follow-up. I can't remember if it was in the first novel or second, but I reached a passage in the book where something happens to a guy sitting on the toilet. I read that section and passed it to the guy sitting beside me and told him to read it. The book was then passed from person to person until everyone in the room had read this particular passage. You could tell by the squirming look on everyone's face when they reached this one particular sentence.

Suddenly I'm finding cheap previously viewed DVDs of the recent Star Wars movies in every store I go to... last night I scored The Last Jedi for $8.99, and I wanna go back for Solo next chance I get (unless someone beats me to it).

I found the first book amongst my shelf this morning so I will look out for that passage (if it's featured in book one) when I find the time to give it a read. Picturing the book being passed around and people being revolted, almost reminds me of crime scene evidence being passed around members of a jury for examination.

Having had a think about it, I think the passage in question is in the follow up (which I believe is called Breeding Ground). I would have been about 16 or 17 when I read it.

Justice League: Snyder Cut.

A nearly four-hour-long sprawling epic. Is it better than the Whedon version? Well, that comes down to your own taste. I would say it is an exercise in storytelling bearing all the hallmarks of Snyder's established aesthetic. It is less entertaining as a tent pole movie in the Marvel tradition so I guess it comes down to appreciating movies as an art or just wanting to be entertained. Me, I like both versions for different reasons.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
