I dont know if there already is a similar topic. didnt find one. So:
What is your absolut favourite DVD-Release so far?
The one that youÂ´d take to the island and play over and over again, the one, that fullfilled all your hopes and dreams about what the DVD could be like if done properly, the one that makes the movie geek inside you jump up and down every time you think about it (well, iÂ´m going a little over the top here..)?
Well, iÂ´ll start with four favourites of mine:
DAWN OF THE DEAD Anchor Bay
This is THE release i had been waiting and hoping for for years. And ANCHOR BAY absolutley nailed it. Every version available, every commentary desirable, DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD on top, wonderful cover-artwork. Thank you Anchor Bay!
My favourite Cronenberg movie. A movie i can watch again and again, and it still amazes me. The cover artwork is the best iÂ´ve ever seen on any DVD. Great supplements and commentary. The TV-Talkshow with Cronenberg, Landis and Carpenter alonoe is worth the price.
CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST Grindhouse Releasing
A movie you cant watch over and over again, unless you are desperately in need of a psychiatrist. But ths DVD is stunning. Its not just the movie itself, its about the strange phenomenon of its production, its success, its criminal charges, the stories of the actors and the crew involved, how it was marketed. Its so insightful in every aspect, you could almost write a diploma based on the materials on these discs. The bitterness of Roger Kerman opposed to Deodatos snobby grin in the video commentary, the incredibly funny Gabriel Yorke, the artwork, i coud go on. Amazing!
BLADE RUNNER Final cut
Well, no need to say anything else. If youre a fan of the movie, this is it. No discussion. You cant do this any better. (although the cover artwork kind of sucks, my oppinon)
