Kill Bill Vol 1 DVD Spec

Post by margand » Tue Jan 13, 2004 1:28 am

This is from www.dvdanswers.com:

Title: Kill Bill: Volume One
Starring: Uma Thurman
Released: 13th April 2004
SRP: $29.99

Further Details
Mirimax have now provided us with the exclusive first details on Kill Bill: Volume One which is directed by movie legend Quentin Tarantino and stars the lovely Uma Thurman. The disc will indeed arrive on the 13th April as we had originally reported, and should set you back somewhere in the region of $29.99. I'm afraid fans of extra material will be a little disappointed with this first release. Only one extra feature will be included - a behind the scenes program hosted by director and writer Quentin Tarantino. No doubt an all singing, all dancing edition will be arriving in a few months time! Anyway, here are the official disc specs, and we'll bring you the region one artwork as soon as it becomes available to us:  


2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation

English Dolby Digital 5.1 Track

English DTS 5.1 Surround Track

French Language Track

Behind the Scenes Program with Quentin Tarantino

English, Spanish Subtitles

I'm pretty disappointed with the lack of features, but this is the first Tarantino film that I have been around to catchthe craze of, so I will catch up on all the releases.

Since we know there's a super-duper edition that's bound to be released sometime this year, I don't mind those specs at all.
But I just wanna see the damn movie on my TV screen ASAP!!!
This could have easily been released in Feb.

according to IGN DVD, the only official specs they know of are a DTS track. If this is so, a 1-disc set may be pretty bare-bones... that somewhat gives the dvdanswers info some truth, but what the fuck. I'll wait until IGN DVD gives the full specs in either case.

heres a link: http://dvd.ign.com/articles/462/462302p1.html

in other completely unrelated news that i saw on IGN DVD, how shitty is that matrix revolutions box art? WOW. i guess they made it to go with the movie itself. check out the shittyness: http://dvd.ign.com/articles/462/462089p1.html

OMFG that is one of the worst covers i've ever seen.
How come they made this piece of shit while the covers for MAtrix 1 and 2 were pretty cool.

Some shitty news about the Kill Bill DVD though, Miramax really are a bunch of money sucking assholes.
If they wanted to come with a superduper version later on, they could do it like LOTR, with a regular 2disk edition with some nice extra's first, and few months later an all out 4disk super edition.
But thats not gonna happen i suppose :(

I'm NOT going to buy it if these specs prove to be true. We know a better version is underway.

QT has become a capitalist dickhead. The rumour has it that vol2 was postponed simply because they want to take away our money with the retail edition(s) of vol1. I bet he's gonna make ten different releases of the DVD, with slightly different bonus materials everytime and maybe the scenes from the Asian version on one of them. I strongly doubt he'll include those in the first version.

But I agree that you must try to cash in on every chance given. There's nothing wrong with that. After all, if the consumer buys a piece of shit, it's his fault, not the seller's. So blame yourselves.

What they shouldve done is forgot the release of the Vol 1 DVD in April, release Vol 2 in February and then give us the Deluxe Royale with Chow Mein 2 or 3 Disc Ultimate Kill Bill DVD set in August.

But I really wanna watch Vol 1, I dont think I can pass up that DVD if its sittin on the shelf. Vol 1 is one of the coolest movies Ive ever seen.

I was lookin at Amazon.com and they already have Vol 1 marked down to 19.95. Not bad at all!! Alot better than 30 bucks for 1 DVD!!! (if thats really the case)

At this fuckn point I dont even give a shit anymore. I've been waiting for the DVD since Vol. I was still new in theaters, and if they're gonna be dickheads then they can all jus suck one. My cuzin made me a copy of Vol 1 on CD so I've jus been watchn that on the computer and it's good enuf for me till the DVD comes out. Fuck em all I'm sick of this bullshit.
Peace and longevity!

I'm still buying the DVD, too. Really, this isn't uncommon. The studios release a bare-bones DVD, maybe with one or two extra features, and then if it does very well, they may or may not release a Super Bonus Deluxe With Curly Fries edition, usually in a couple of years. I don't think QT is going to lead us on with release after release of the DVD with only slightly different special features, though - he seems to smart to do something that retarded. I'm thinking there's going to be one special bonus edition, and that's it.

I have been told that "bare-bones" editions (if you want to call them that) of Vol. 1 and 2 will be released during the 2nd (Vol.1) and 3rd (Vol. 2) quarters of this year. In late November/early December 2004, a 4-disc set (a really cool, creative name was given  ;D) will be released for the "non-casual" fan.

You heard it HERE first!!!

ALSO: If anyone here cares (I DO!!!), The ORIGINAL Star Wars Trilogy will be released for the first time ever on DVD in September 2004!!!!!!!!!!

ABOUT THE MONEY ISSUE

What I will (and usually) do is:

Trade in the older version(s) to a video store that gives credit towards other purchases. Then, I use that credit towards the new version(s). If bought during the week of the release, the new version(s) are on sale. With the sale price AND the credit, I usually end up saving A LOT of money.

Sure that is resonable, but I never sold a DVD, cuz: If I have a DVD I never wanna give them away.
But in this fucking KB DVD case I will probably change my behavoiur and will do what you mentioned, only for saving money...

That's what I said....and THIS is what I read from Digital Bits....
And we've saved the best for last! Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Volume 1 will street on 4/13 (SRP $29.99). The disc will include anamorphic widescreen video (2.35:1), both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 audio, a Behind the Scenes with Quentin Tarantino documentary and additional extras TBA. Interestingly, this DVD release is just 3 days prior to the scheduled release of Kill Bill, Volume 2 into theaters. Our initial information is that this is NOT a special edition release, so it's possible that a more elaborate edition of both films is planned for a later date.
Interesting, note that it says "additional extras TBA." There must be one shred of hope that we'll get the unrated version....

Maybe if we all hope really really hard and pray every night, our collective spirit will force Miramax to put the unrated cut on the DVD.

I don't know how some of you can complain about what miramax/QT is doing if you are gonna buy the crappy dvd anyway? other than that one poster (i forget his name sorry) who says he's gonna just turn in his version to the used dvd store when the new one comes out, why give in and give them your hard earned money? I am holding out, cuz i am sick of directors/studios whoever comin out with a theatrical version then down the line making the SE and i end up wasting my money on both. so, i don't need kill bill on my shelf THAT bad, i shall wait for the "mega super ultra neato keeno better come out fu**in' quick sometime this year" version..

This is from www.dvdfile.com:

Quentin Tarantino's latest ode to B-movie exploitation, the bloody Kill Bill Vol. 1 will street on April 13th, just in time for the theatrical premiere of the second installment of this cinematic two-parter. Buena Vista Home Entertainment will present the film in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1, plus the "Behind the Scenes with Quentin Tarantino" documentary and trailers. Retail is $29.95, and Tarantino has already revealed in published interviews that a full-fledged box set with both films, jammed with extras, will be released at a later date. Watch this space...

:P :P :P :P :P :P
