07-20-2003, 06:21 PM
Although I heard it was supposed to be delayed until 8/19, Diabolikdvd.com has the Director's Cut of VERSUS available now.
I am going to hold out a little longer for the SE (hopefully Diabolik will get that in soon!), but I thought I would give a heads up to you guys.
Here is a link to the page

DELAYED??? NO!!!! I just pre-ordered it from Amazon.com tonight because it says on their site that it's being released on July 29.

Yeah, I did check out Amazon and it still does say July 29th, but DVD Empire has listed for awhile that it was delayed until 8/19.
Let's hope Amazon is right, I can't wait to get my hands on the SE!! If yours ends up shipping, please let us know!

Why Pay $ 34.95?

I really need to re-check this film out. Probably just wait for the SE though. Thanks for the tip Jeff!

The directors cut is the regular cut. No new footage.

just read a review of the new Versus DVD at digitalbits and the video quality sounds very disappointing...
"Media Blasters isn't known for its DVD quality, and at this point in time they don't seem to be trying to rectify that. Versus is a step up from the bad pirate copy you can find at your favorite comic/DVD shop, but only a small step up. The picture is very soft, full of artifacts and lacking in definition. The blacks, of which there are plenty, shift and shimmy with compression artifacts. I thought I could get used to the sub par picture pretty fast, but because the camera work in this film is so fluid, these problems just keep coming up, which prevents me from forgetting it's a shitty transfer. Hey, but it's anamorphic at least, I guess I can be happy about that."
Yea the image quality isn't as good as the Japanese release. Anyone know why they didn't use a double amaray case? I was disappointed that they include the second disc in a paper sleave.
