    • We watched the follow on from the 80s Blade Runner, my better half did not think much about it but I did I though it was well done with the story following on well from the original. A few months ago I also picked up the soundtrack LP in a second hand store, I will add this this particular Hans Zimmer soundtrack is not for everyone. Hans Zimmer has taken quite a different approach to this soundtrack compared to the original "Blade Runner", personally I like the 80s original a lot more.

        One of my favorites of the last few years! Great movie in my opinion and solid sequel to the classic original.

        • Tonight it was the turn of "The Pianist" outstanding movie in every way, I can only guess that after filming Adrien Brody must have been exhausted, that was a tough role to play.

          • The Pianist is truly an outstanding film and also streams on Netflix at the moment. One of the best on the subject matter.

            • It certainly is.

              The last statement on the cover of the CD by Roman Polanski sums it up.

              I had a listen to the soundtrack today, its been years since I last put it on.

                • Horror Express rip roaring horror movie in the style of Hammer or Tigon with a. double pairing of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing with Telly Salvalas thrown in as a Cossack officer.

                  Blast from the past as I had at least two prints of this on super 8 at 5x400 length. Those prints had pinky issues. A number of DVD prints were available some pirate or public domain again with issues.

                  The Arrow Blu ray is an immense upgrade in print and sound on what has been available before and the price has dropped to £8. 4 neat documentary shorts are also included in the package

                  • Mike,

                    I love this film, it's atmospheric and well written. I'll have to get this Blu-ray, not only for the extras but also for the audio since I have a nice color 2x400' German sound cutdown that's patiently waiting to be re-recorded.

                        Remember you need a multi region Blu ray as Arrow releases are Region B.

                        I bought Dressed to Kill at same time. I haven’t watched it yet. That’s a title that doesn’t turn up to often on 8mm sales lists.

                        • Mike,

                          Thank you for pointing that out.

                          • Came across this one the other day, so thought I would give it a go. Using the Epson VP last night, it really came across with some of the most stunning photography I have ever seen. The folk featured, are living life right to the edge and visually its captured incredibly well. Although its states a 2:35:1 ratio. The picture ratio seemed more like 2:20:1 which is my favorite ratio. Both picture and sound 5:1 was excellent. "Mountain" is narrated by Willem Dafoe.

                            If you want to watch something that is truly "spectacular" you can't get better than this.

                            • Dressed to Kill Brian de Palma explicit Hitchcock type thriller movie. Another Arrow release. Neat print and sound with staggering 7 documentaries. This is the R rated version which is different from any tv version and the old super 8 mini digest feature. So expect more nudity and explicit violence and strong language. They actually have a film comparison documentary which shows the differences watching Angie in the shower 🙄being sliced up in the elevator, Nancy’s chat with Michael Caine and the final dream sequence.

                              Product Description




                              THE LATEST FASHION IN MURDER

                              After sexually frustrated housewife Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson) has a session with her psychiatrist Dr Elliott (Michael Caine), she silently seduces a man in an art gallery, an assignation that ends in murder and the only witness, high-class prostitute Liz Blake (Nancy Allen) being stalked by the killer in turn.

                              One of Brian De Palma's darkest and most controversial suspense thrillers, Dressed to Kill was as acclaimed for its stylish set-pieces and lush Pino Donaggio score as it was condemned for its sexual explicitness and blatant borrowings from Alfred Hitchcock in general and Psycho in particular.

                              But the glee with which De Palma turns this material inside out is completely infectious, as he delves deep inside the troubled psyches of his characters (critic Pauline Kael said that the film was "permeated with the distilled essence of impure thoughts") in order to undermine expectations at every turn.

                              Special Features:

                              <ul type="disc">
