    Well, the Millcreek one is Blu, though I'm not sure it's legit?

    They're probably working with the same transfer. The most recent edition of the Keoma / Grand Duel double feature Blu-Ray actually credits Blue Underground in the small print on the back cover.

    Recently I had a chance to check out Blue Underground's release and here are my thoughts: http://10kbullets.com/reviews/g/grand-duel-the-blue-underground/

    Also when I asked them about Mill Creek Blu-Ray release of The Grand Duel and Keoma Blu-Ray. They told me that they only have the rights to these two films on DVD.

    How is the Mill Creek Blu-Ray? I just noticed it was only $5 at DVD Planet, and I'm kicking myself 'cause I just placed an order there yesterday.

    I haven’t watched The Grand Duel yet, but I watched Keoma three times in a row one night. It’s a nice transfer, nothing eye-popping, but still very nice looking. The movie itself is a surreal experience to say the least.

    $5? I’d pick it up. I’ll probably just stick with my Mill Creek BD.

    The Mill Creek release looks very good and is well worth the $5 asking price.

    I should also point out that the Blue Underground release is region free, while the Mill Creek release is only region A.

    Also if you are a huge fan of Spaghetti Western films like me, the audio commentary included with the Blue Underground release is very informative.

    Thanks for the recommendations. The Mill Creek Blu of Keoma/The Grand Duel is on it's way. Even with shipping and tax it was less than 8 bucks. I spent more than that on lunch today.
