    Ever since Sony bought out MGM, releases from MGM's catalogue has been really slow.

    Slow, and crappy...

    Thank God It's Friday, Yellowbeard, Private Resort and others all have generic menus (I do mean GENERIC), no scene selections, no trailers. They're about as bare bones as you can get. And the others that aren't generic usually don't have the trailers...just crappy trailers for other unrelated Sony flicks.

    I just want The Burning released already. I don't care if it's barebones, just as long it's widescreen anamorphic.

    I make nicer looking menus with Nero, and you can't do much with that but put the poster art for a background. Also it takes just a few minutes to add chapters, hell you can have Nero create stops for you if you don't feel like making your own. Platinum has nicer looking discs than these.:rolleyes: I heard one of those was a dvd5 with only 3.5G used somewhere. For a big production company to skimp this hard is completly un-acceptable, at least up the bitrate to fill the little dvd.:fuck:

    My Sony boycott is going strong and they add fuel to the fire almost daily.

    Someone put a torrent up of The Burning WS and the trailer, and I'll make a nice looking 16X9 dvd (although it won't be HD). All you have to do is tell Nero or TMPGE to make it 16X9 & they will. Can't vouch for how much better than 4:3 they really look, seems to look nicer on my 32" 4:3 set with 16:9 mode.

    EXACTLY! Sony are just supremely lazy. If it's not a product that will sell in droves, they really just don't give a damn. Yes, even most budget DVD studios out there usually give chapter selection menus. Hell, even those $1 discs at Wal-mart do!

    And as for hoping future MGM/Sony titles will be anamorphic... O.C. & Stiggs (great little film I might add) was 2.35:1 and you guessed it, presented only in letterbox and not anamorphic enhanced. They managed to film a new interview with Robert Altman, but obviously just couldn't waste time to enhance it for 16x9 TV's, which they ironically sell plenty of themselves.

    Does anyone remember the After Midnight DVD that came out last year soon after Sony grabbed MGM's reigns? It even states that it's anamorphic on the back cover of that one, and isn't!

    And don't even get me started again on Sony's sneaky assed Fullscreen reissues... :fucked:

    If we're talking about the original UK THORN releases it was released uncut with the full raft scene , hooker killed with scissors etc , by mistake. EMI recalled the tapes and released a cut version. You can tell if it's the cut version if the cassette is stamped with a date, probably sometime in 1983/4. If it doesn't haev a date stamp it's probably the uncut version

    Looking for HD copy of The Burning...

    Hi Folks,

    Does anyone know where I can get a dvd copy of the Monsters HD version that was shown a while back.

    I am in the UK and i am sick of watching this dodgy fullscreen copy.

    If anyone has it and is willing to send me a copy, Please name your price :)

    I'm amazed I can't find this on any torrent sites. So who's got this and wants to trade for some other kind of custom dvd?

    That is a great looking cover Dusk, very well done!

    If you still need the torrent for the Widescreen HD version, there it is:
    http://tracker.zaerc.com/torrents-details.php?id=4612

    But one question, with that face, can Cropsy really adjust to life as the doctor tells him when he's "ready" to leave the hospital? C'mon!! It's another similar thing to that one of the cop saying "the city is full of weirdos" in When a Stranger Calls! :mad:
