    Now all a sudden they are doing the Vinegar Syndrome model?

    I buy from Vinegar Syndrome, I know Vinegar Syndrome, Vinegar Syndrome is a friend of mine. Dark Force, you are no Vinegar Syndrome.

    Yeah exactly, and I heard they made some digs at VS the other day in their Livestream or whatever... something about VS releasing "gay porn" :rolleyes:

    I though perhaps Dark Force were starting to up their game, as they did a solid job on The Giant Spider Invasion re-release. That new transfer is 100x better than the older VCI Blu-ray transfer... but then they gotta pull this crap.

    I do like the VS model though. Even if I there isn't an offer out there yet I'd consider taking (as much as I like VS). But for example I would go in blind on Mondo Macabro offering their next 16 limited editions for $400 (or whatever the math would work best for them).

    ...Didn't Code Red release Caged Men on DVD and then again on Blu-ray?

    Oh yeah, Mondo Macabro I'd be all in if I had the cash at once. With Dark Force, there just isn't enough that I like on the whole to bother with, and their release quality is sketchy at best.

    Yep.

    Caged Men is far from pornographic. Good movie.

    Sure. Just saying, it's not like they're not also peddling gay exploitation.

    And wasn't Bill teasing how another actor did some gay porn but didn't want to talk about it? If the someone doesn't want to talk about aspects of their past respect that.

    But when someone always seems to have gay porn on the brain... :cool:

    I just received the MVD wide retail release of Freeway 2: Confessions Of A Trickbaby.

    Obviously the disc is the same, but everything about it appears to be identical to Dark Force's release. No mention of MVD anywhere on the packaging, and back of the case matches the scan on blu-ray.com even down to the UPC. I'm guessing Dark Force just sent MVD their overflow stock, no need to press new discs or repackage.

    Nice to finally have this one at a reasonable price.

    Yes, VS did release gay porn, and some of the greatest, most innovative gay porn that invented modern gay porn as we know it. Wakefield Poole was (is) a genius who removed the elements of gay porn that was basically being made by people who were just creating a serviceable product, and he infused his porn (and all future gayporn that others made in the style he originated to this day) with a gay positive aesthete and sensuality that was actually in line with gay ideals at the time. Fire Island locales, positive hedonism and camaraderie, and audio/visual beauty in addition to the carnality that spoke to how we identified beauty in our culture, from classical works, the sensuality of the Clone aesthete and the louche Proustian worldview, to complimentary lighting and film angles highlighting male beauty in a way that was previously only used for females in porn, and complex narratives that engaged in depictions of the 70s liberation when gay cruising itself became an act that occupied the intersection of art and sex (Patrick Moore wrote an incredible book about this). So thank you VS for bringing these beautiful and important documents to a new life (especially since the generation that embraced them the first time around was blotted out which gives acts like this a Farenheit 451 sense of urgency) and hopefully I won't have to open another can of Julia Sugarbaker on those wretched souls who denigrated them for this.
