I picked up Anchor Bays new Halloween 2-disc set today. The video presentation is breathtaking.
Is it $15.99, like next weeks ad says?
Wow! If so, that IS cheap. DDD has this for $18.
I thought this didn't come out until August?:eek2:
What the?! says on amazon.com that it isnt released untill August 5th :eek1: :eek2:
sometimes stores put DVDs out early.
is it really only 15.99 at best buy next week? that will be sweet.
Is the transfer a lot better? The one now looks good but if it looks even better I'll get it. I'm a sucker for a nice video transfer.
Me too. How are the special features?! Are they really good? Give info!
And what are the audio specs?
5.1 DD from what I have seen.
thanks! Ill definately getting this as the only other dvd version i have is the extended which is mono....
I paid $19.99. Looks like I might be taking my receipt in on the 5th. Anyway the video really is stunning, I have not seen the previous DVDs so I cannot compare, but for a 25 year old film, WOW!! Grain is at a minimum, if at all. I hope the same will be true of the Day of the Dead Divimax. On disc 2, the features are great as well, a 87-minute documentary, 10 minute On Location-25 Years later., Theatrical Trailer, 2 TV Spots, 2 Radio Spots, About 60 Poster and Still Gallery photos, the usual Talent Bios, and on the DVD-ROM the original screenplay and Screensavers. Not to mention the commentary with Carpenter, Jamie Lee, and Debra Hill on Disc one. If I'm not mistaken, I believe this is the old Laserdisc commentary.
Well, a quick trip to DVDFILE should dampen fan's hopes.
I guess the picture is slightly sharper, but all the colors are washed out in comparison to the last disc.
What a shame!:fire:
The LE is on the left, the 25th on the right.
After reading that review and seeing those screenshots (thanks Mortis) I will probably pass on it.
Wow that's so irritating. I've grown up watching this film and I can't imagine it without all of those little colorful lighting techniques. I'll get it for the commentary and documentary, but definitely will keep the regular and extended editions for watching it.
I guess I should keep my Restored version.
Holy shit! What a fuck-up, every attempt of Carpenter making it look like fall or in the dark is lost! Green grass? This is how they get us to double dip. :fire: The Criterion remains.
Day of the Dead audio problem and now Halloween. What is AB's problem?
Went to check BB tonight, before I read this review. The old Halloweens are missing (usually had 2 of each, extended + theatical). Are they going OOP?
I'm starting to worry about AB's THE HILLS HAVE EYES release more and more. Two big fuckups in a row is not a reassuring turn of events.
