I will too.
overall satisfied will pic quality of Mutant. next code red blu i'll probably buy is Hide and go Shriek only seen it once dont remember it but I love slashers so I should dig it
It's a suitably satisfying and ridiculous deep cut slasher.
Scream is now available through the Ronin site, along with two Italian titles.
Latest batch of Code Red Blus are live on the Ronin site.
WTF? Where did Hands of Steel go?
The 3 titles are Hands of Steel, Cocaine Wars, & In the Aftermath.
Ah...I thought I saw it on the site earlier today. Then when I got home from work to purchase it,... it was gone. Phew...I can take a breath.
I only ordered Scream.
I think I'll just wait and grab the forthcoming 88 Films release for Ironmaster. $26.99 is damned pricey for that one, and the 88 Films release will almost surely go much cheaper before the release date (like Hands of Steel & Blastfighter did).
I only ordered scream. Not a fan of sword/sorcery, sword/sandal flicks except for Ator.
I am a fan of the Genre, but Ironmaster is hardly any classic or anything. It's more of a $19.99 title tops, $26.99 is just too damn high for it.
I got my shipping notice already. There is a lot to like about this Ronin site.
Same here. I hope all future Code Red titles will end up there, it's just easier all around.
I just wish they'd be priced a little more evenly, or offer some bundle discounts, but I'm sure that's up to Bill. It seems like many of the titles that I really do want have been priced lower, while the titles that I'm on the fence about are always priced higher.
With the exception of DGITH, they've all been low-ish. And I did;t mind shelling out a bit more for the DGITH disc.
DGITH had a lot of work that went into though, and I think the price is fair and warranted with it.
If you wanted to buy all 6 of the January Code Red titles, for instance, you'd still be paying $142 for just 6 Blu-rays. That's a lot more than the recent bundles on Diabolik and even the Bigcartel webstore. Some kind of bundle discount is clearly needed on the Ronin site.
Is it me or is the Ironmaster poster better than the movie?
The poster is pretty awesome. The trailer is less promising. I wasn't particularly excited when he listed those six titles. They're they kind of movies I'd expect to see spaced out between releases of "hotter" movies. I might take a chance on a movie I'm only casually interested in if I'm placing an order for a movie I really want, but I'm far less likely to place an order if none of them really catch my fancy. Blastfighter is ok, but I'd imagine that a significant portion of cult Blu-ray collectors are region free, and that many of those interested in the movie already own the European release. How many of those enjoy the movie enough to invest in it twice in little more than a year is anyone's guess.
I know there are many factors that come in to play with regards to which movies you get to release and when. Working out deals, arranging interviews with cast and crew for supplementary materials, availability of source elements and how much work they need, etc. Bill got the dreadful Nightfall as part of a deal, for instance. I don't recall anyone requesting it or expressing excitement over it afterwards, but there it is on Blu-ray. Still, I sometimes wonder - with all the more attractive Euro titles and regional US indie horrors that Bill has announced - "why this now and not that?" On his Blu-ray.com forum thread, he frequently states that his releases don't break even, and for all his eccentricities, I appreciate the work that he does. If every release sets him back, I'm afraid he'll close shop before he gets to the good stuff. Like Monster Shark. Or The Dark. Or Screams of a Winter Night. Or Mountain of the Cannibal God. Or Kingdom off the Spiders. Or Last Cannibal World. Or Seven Blood-stained Orchids. Or Opera.
Scream arrived today will report in on PQ this eve.
