PSY on “INFERNAL AFFAIRS Heads to Amazon via THE DEPARTED” Actually I enjoyed the second one even more, Francis Ng is outstanding in this one. 8 minutes ago
BtoFu on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” I cancelled my pre-order because in the end I decided that I couldn't justify the price when I only really care for Jailhouse 41. That being said I caught the news of the Arrow transfers and when I saw them for myself it only made the process of cancelling easier on my mind. I'll stick with the Discotek release for now. 2 hours ago
Mikko Koivisto on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” I must admit I do not have the Arrow set (I cancelled my pre-order when the first screen captures came out). I'm basing my comments on the hundreds of screen captures that I've seen, as well as the two promotional videos Arrow posted on YouTube, so perhaps there is more than meets my eye. I also acknowledge the possibility that the films were intended to play with the Arrow look, even though that look cannot be found on the Japanese or French DVD masters, original trailers, or (apparently) the 35mm prints currently circulating Japan. Everything is possible. 3 hours ago
Mike Leeder on “INFERNAL AFFAIRS Heads to Amazon via THE DEPARTED” its interesting to hear The Departed is making the move to TV, just as the original INFERNAL AFFAIRS is currently being reshot as a TV/Web Series at the moment in Hong Kong & Shenzhen, will be interesting to see how they both turn out 8 hours ago
Peter Martin on “INFERNAL AFFAIRS Heads to Amazon via THE DEPARTED” Thanks for comments on DETROIT 1-8-7, especially from a Detroit resident! 8 hours ago
bricriu . on “INFERNAL AFFAIRS Heads to Amazon via THE DEPARTED” I think I'm compelled to watch the original trilogy now, as I've only ever seen the first. 13 hours ago
disqus_sirsXW3K32 on “Recreating Star Wars with Drones and a Whole Lot of Color” article is a pretty lame cover-up of a resolve ad. you can do all they do with nearly every other program 16 hours ago
Jason Gray on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” I don't doubt Arrow did top work with the prints they were given, but bold color palettes aside, for momiji (2nd row grab) to be colored that way in a film or TV prod. would be an obvious error -- like making pine trees yellow for no reason. 17 hours ago
Mikko Koivisto on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” Nice, but I wish you had used one of the good dvd transfers as comparison point. The Image/Eureka transfer you used is generally considered the worst (and oldest) dvd transfer Jailhouse 41 has ever received. 18 hours ago
Ard Vijn on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” Thanks for destroying my cognitive dissonance, Mitch! Much appreciated. 20 hours ago
Mitch Davis on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” I'm almost certain that the then-new 35mm print of JAILHOUSE 41 (from Vitagraph Films) that we screened at Fantasia way back in the day didn't look so teal in its colour timing, but then, it's difficult to know if that print was entirely accurate in its lab work. 21 hours ago
arturo on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” So the colour in the DVD version that I own got it wrong, and the Blu-ray version got it right? What source did they use for the DVD version 7 years ago? 21 hours ago
Ard Vijn on “Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?” I'll kick off with Arrow's notes on the transfer: 22 hours ago
wabalicious on “The Muscles from Brussels sports sleep attire and sense of self-parody in first JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON trailer” It was ok, nowhere near as good as all the reviews made it out to be. There were a few laughs and Van Damme was good, but overall i wouldn't recommend it too highly. It seems to be for people who would look down their noses at films like the ones JCVD appears in, but who feel like they'd like to enjoy him "ironically" with their stupid hipster moustaches, skinny jeans and a $10 artisan coffee with lots of froth. Maybe i'll enjoy it more after a few more episodes but i was kinda underwhelmed by it to say the least. 1 day ago
Ard Vijn on “The Many Faces Of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa” And that concludes the quiz! As usual, here are all the titles and the people who got them first: 1 day ago
Zero Lastimosa on “Pilot for JCVD's Action Comedy "Jean-Claude Van Johnson" is now on Amazon Video. Watch and Vote!” Thanks! That was one of the funniest TV episodes I've seen in a long time xD 2 days ago
Unflinching_Eye on “Meet The Characters Of The Mo Brothers' HEADSHOT” So, an ultra violent take on THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT? 2 days ago
Ard Vijn on “Destroy All Monsters: As The DCEU Burns, The Studio's Model Needs To Change” So... yeah, yesterday I saw SUICIDE SQUAD. And I must have a film-critical blind spot or something, because I really enjoyed myself. Pound for pound I think it is a more enjoyable film than BATMAN V SUPERMAN, and is actually closer to the DEADPOOL film (other universe, I know) in tone, atmosphere and level-of-unfinishedness. 2 days ago
One-Eye on “Chiller Films Releasing Gregg Bishop's SIREN This December” Sounds a little like Brian Keene's classic novel KILL WHITEY. 3 days ago
Theodore Wirth on “Review: KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS Makes Thrilling Music” Well done Jim Tudor. Thank you for your hard work. 3 days ago
