About damn time dusk til dawn comes out, I have desperado, once upon a time in Mexico, and finally this one comes out. My son is 15, and these Salma Hayek movies have been assisting his puberty stage quite well! Keep up the good job blu ray...
REALLY sucks that they are treating From Dusk Till Dawn like Megashark vs. Giant Octopus! I guess Full Tilt Boogie is gone! And FDTD 2 sucks ass! FDTD3 is the good sequel. I'll probably finally get around to purchasing the Alliance release now.
Very glad to see all those Herllraisers coming out. They'd better do justice to the transfers and give us LOSSLESS AUDIO....though I highly doubt they will. Generally Echo Bridge will either give DVD-quality 5.1 or 2.0 LPCM. Neither of which is desireable.
I wouldn't trust Amazon for correct information. They also had Ernest Goes to Camp/ Ernest Goes to Jail as a 2 Disk set originally, this is a 1 disk set. I don't see why anyone would assume anything then the worst for these releases. Their goal is not to make them amazing by spending all this money to restore or to add special features or bump up the transfer, their goal is to make money. The way to accomplish this goal is going bare bones, slim pickens on everything and putting out a release at a very cheap price and then re-releasing it if the sales did well
OK what I have to say could be bad news. I just picked up Children of the Corn 2 and 3 double feature on DVD at Walmart for $5. Now 2 is definitely not coming out on BD because it is a full-frame transfer on the DVD, a bad one too. Children 3 is a rather crappy looking widescreen transfer so don't expect much from that BD. Also they are both squeezed to fit on a single layer disc and have compression issues galore. Anyway I also saw From Dusk Til Dawn (the new Echo Bridge DVD) in the $5 bin. It does however have Full Tilt Boogie on it, probably squeezed on a single layer disc. So if there is a single disc version of FDTD we may get an SD version of Full Tilt with it. However I am not expecting any better level of quality from these than what was expected. Hopefully an HD transfer will at least look better. I'm thinking FDTD will be the same master as the Alliance version. Thank god Lionsgate got the higher profile titles. At least those will be acceptable. Just thought some of you would be interested in this.
I would avoid these issuings all together. I work for a retailer that received their copies this morning and all of the titles are barebones, 2.0 stereo audio and their almost all, if not all, the wrong aspect ratio---they're all 1:78:1. Seek out the Alliance pressings if you can.
Who knows if these titles will ever have a proper release...For the PP might as well pick them up $9.99 or $13.99 is what it is, they have to be better then the dvd. I don't see them making us double dip in a year and putting all this work into the titles, especially if nobody buys these titles and holds out. What would their reasoning be to put out a better release if they can't even sell these crappy releases for 10-15 dollars.
