The transfers for both the theatrical and director's cut in R1 and R2 are supposed to be different?

As the commentary is the same, I´ll bet both transfers will be struck from the same master. If that would be the case, I believe the main difference will be on the encoding of each transfer.

Arrow is slowly growing in providing great transfers so, if your question is regarding which edition to buy, I would wait until September for the first reviews to pop up regarding Arrow´s edition.

Has anyone seen NEMO? That was a Princess Bride like movie that starred Harvey Keitel. It was one of Mathilda Mays early roles, a few months before LIFEFORCE!

I believe it's been put out on dvd before. Is it related to the Nemo books about the kid who adventures into fantasy lands? I loved that NES game!

I love that movie. A really great sci-fi B-movie. I was 14yrs i think the first time i saw it on TV. I remember it was the uncut version.

Lots of talk about The Howling, not so much about Lifeforce.
Anyone seen it yet? Any thoughts?
The distribution has been very spotty in Canada, I finally relented and ordered it online.

I have the Arrow steelbook preordered. I cannot wait to get this in September. I'm a sucker for extras which is why I went with the Arrow blu. Hopefully the transfer will be equal to Shout's (or even better!).

Wait, I thought the Shout! release only had the DC of the film? Isn't that why people were excited about the Arrow release?

It looks like the included DVD has only the international cut, while the blu ray has both cuts. No idea what's different about the upcoming Arrow release.

Interesting. Now I'm not sure whether to get this or wait for Arrow.
