No Tenebrae, geesh.

No wonder Demons 2 is mint, it's a shitty film.

I have a quick question. Why would you get Suspiria if you said how you hated it in your post about the Argento's best film poll? I just wondered. Anyways, I think you got two great films there.

Moderators, can we start a new forum for this person, so he can start idiotic threads of no interest, use, or relevance to anyone? How about we call the Forum Unrelated CRAP. Or is he going to start his shopping list in the main forum soon. Or would you like everyone in this forum to start new threads for useless bullshit like this? Who gives a damn what LDs this person bought? Everytime he buys one, he thinks it is a reason to start a new thread. Enough is enough.

Or is there some way I can spam block all posts from this person?

Oh yeah - and buying your much hated Suspiria - or were you just trying to be controversial with that other thread you started. You are my hero. I'd still like to spam block you.

Oh no, mother! Blood!

I never said I hated Suspiria. I just don't care for it as much as Argento's other films like Tenebre. And I am not Spamming. I am starting up a conversation on the Suspiria Image and Roan Demons 2 LDs. If you don't care about Laser discs you shouldn't post a reply. And ask Paff or Dave, they will tell you I'm not spamming.

Hey napalm, I don't want to step on your toes, but the moderators don't need to get involved in the filtering process. If you see the name of someone you're not interested in in the "Topic Starter" column, don't read on. It's not like spam where you're forced to d/l it before you knwo what it is.

Sorry if this is out of line, I just don't believe people should read what they don't want to when they don't have to.

Suspiria is art. Demons 2 is garbage.

Your right Zombie, but I love both garbage and art! After watching Suspiria again, I understand why so many people love it. The main reason I went against it at first is the fact that its too over rated.

No, you are not starting up a conversation on particular LD Titles, you are simply starting MULTIPLE threads on what LDs you have bought. I did not see any comments solicited by you on either this thread or your previous "I bought one LD today" thread. You don't even have the decency to just keep the one thread for your ld purchases, you just seem to have this new found love for ld, and in both cases, your threads are just gloating on your purchases, not soliciting discussion. Don't give me bullshit about "Oh, I'm just starting a thread to discuss these two movies". Yeah, right, well there was nothing in either of your two "Today's Shopping" threads asking comments. Not to mention, if you had have been soliciting discussion on Suspiria and D2, that belongs on the Euro Horror thread.

Hojimoji - yeah, I will not be clicking on any threads of deg's shopping list threads, but I am pretty annoyed that someone thinks a purchase warrants starting a thread. If everyone in this forum started a new thread for every fucking DVD or LD or VHS purchase they made, it would be a nightmare. Or are we just supposed to patronise bigdeg because he is in some category of person who warrants being patronised? If so, let me know if he is in some affirmative action category, and I will then respond to each of his threads by "That's very good, Bigdeg! My, you are lucky and clever!"

Well, since my name has come up in this thread, I guess I'm compelled to respond.

Truth is, as much as a laserdisc fan as I am, Big D, you don't have to post EVERY time you buy a new one. If I did that, there would be nothing but Paff New Laserdisc posts on this board, and that's pretty dull.

Still, when you (or anyone) finds a good laserdisc "score", I'd love to hear about it.

A quick guide:
Suspiria LD = Score
Demons 2 LD = not a big deal

(and I'll bet anything you have more of an appreciation of Suspiria after seeing it on LD with the fantastic sound and picture)

Yeah, maybe actually watch the LDs before you post, so some useful information can be imparted - like what is the quality like of the Suspiria LD? Running time? Sound format? Picture format? P&S? Etc. People would be interested in some information on the item itself, see if they want to dig up a copy.

Oh no, mother! Blood!

The quality is astounding. I know for a fact that the Anchorbay dvd will have more grain than this LD becuas DVDs pick up more grain during the transfer, but this LD has more scratches and specks. The sound is great to. This is the Image LD, WIDESCREEN and I'm not sure of the running time, but I know its uncut. For being a 1989 release its way before its time! To this day, I still have seen releases of LDs or DVDs that top this quality.

Moving to the laserdisc forum.

BigDeg187 - their suggestions are correct. It's best to discuss the quality of the lasers, etc.

Its amazing you can forsee the future BigDeg, would you mind giving me the Lotto numbers?

In my eyes I have scene that dvds pick up more grain then LDs. Lets all just wait for the print.

I never knew their was a laserdisc forum. Sorry Dave for using the main forum.

BigDeg - I don't see the DVD showing up film grain being a bad thing - it shows the extra resolution DVD is capable of.

Being an 89 disc, I don't guess there are any extras?

Is the sound mono, or what?

------------------
Oh no, mother! Blood!

The Suspiria disc is pretty damn excellent for an 89 disc.

The extras are two trailers, American and European.

The real bonus is the sound. Mono it ain't. This one gets a full Dolby Pro Logic mix, with all 6 speakers getting a major workout (The Fox-Lorber tape was mono. Yuck). Anchor Bay is gonna be hard-pressed to do a sound mix that's as good as this LD.

But even as a die-hard LDer, I think the picture could stand some improvement. It's damn good, don't get me wrong. But Laserdisc has problems with the "warm" colors, notably red and blue. And as anyone knows, red and blue get a lot of screen time in Suspiria. It still looks good, even better on my 704, but I've always been impressed with the way reds look on DVD. So I'll still be first in line when Anchor Bay's disc comes out.

My only worry with the DVD will be Anamorphic Downconversion, which is getting increasingly annoying on DVD. Gotta get a Wega pretty soon I guess...

No apology needed. There wasn't a laserdisc forum when you posted that! http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/smile.gif

But I figure there's a few of us here that still love laserdisc, while many others don't really care - they're only intersted in DVD. Creating a laserdisc forum just seemed to make sense...

Dang Paff, I hope AB does such a job on the sound. That sounds like a great disc. With that mix and a superior video transfer, it would certainly be a dvd worth having.

And as for the offer Dave, thanks, but I was just really jealous of BigDeg. I'm over it now, well, almost *sniff, sniff*. Actually, I feel quite at home over at the Hammer Forum, which strangely enough hasn't been trafficked much lately. We need more new Hammer titles!

Oh, yeah... this is the LD forum. Um, let's see. I've only got Killing Zoe and Pink Floyd at Pompeii on LD. Killing Zoe sounds great, but it's not letterboxed like the dvd. The Floyd disc is kick-ass. I wish I still had a player for that disc alone. Well, also I'd pick up those Star Wars LDs if I still had a player. I just know that I'll keep this on the back burner until they're all gone. When will I ever learn??

Yeah, I hope (and expect) AB will do as good a job on the sound. Strangely enough, the Japanese Suspiria DVD is mono only, and the UK DVD is just a "hi-fi" stereo mix. I wonder why way back in 89 Image did a great job on the sound, and noone even thought of doing a decent job since.

Paff - I don't have an anamorphic capable TV, but I look at anamorphic enhancement as being a future bonus for me, so I'll get even more out of it when I eventually get one... It is the future...

Oh no, mother! Blood!

Are all copies of the NTSC VHS Suspiria cut? I know mine is. I remember seeing a laserdisc of Suspiria for sale way back in '92, but I believe it was pan & Scan. Same cover art as the VHS I have. I can't wait for Anchor Bay's version! That's going to be awesome! I hope and pray they do OPERA soon!
