A Double Feature to End All Double Features!


#1

i didn’t really know where to put this, so when one of the mods finds it, feel free to move it. (this is the 2nd place it’s been :wink:)



look what’s coming to Region 1 DVD on November 9th:



a double feature to end all double features!!!









ZATOICHI AND SONATINE!!!


#2

Heard about that a while back. Hopefully Sonatine will be in widescreen this time, unlike the previous shitty Miramax release of it


#3

yeah, i know. the first (and only) DVD release was full screen. it’s out of print now anyway. the only way to get it is by getting a region 0 off of ebay.

can’t wait for this one.

I’VE GOTTA SEE SONATINE!! >:(


#4

I already have both on DVD. Zatoichi I own the HK version, very good one in perfect technical quality. And from Sonatine I also have the HK one which is also very good in sound and picture, so I dont need this double feature, but it looks nice.

if you’re able to buy from asianfilmnetwork.com ( a german dvd manufacturer) get sonatine there, its even ANAMORPHIC.



i try to find out if this release is the old miramax sonatine or some kind of new one (i doubt it)

The HK release ist badly subtitled and the picture is cropped. ::slight_smile:

The german DVD by afn is even worse in terms of subtitling and - in contradiction to what is stated above - not anamorphic.


#8

Yeah, I was about to say…HK releases tend to be pretty shitty. (and cheap)


#9

Well, I am not that tech-freak and I dig my HK DVD :wink:


#10

i just picked this up and Sonatine IS widescreen. ;D


#11

what you think of the movies, Shep?


#12

i haven’t watched Zatoichi yet, but i thought Sonatine was great.

the one scene where he plays russian roulette on the beach was cool. ;D

i gotta see Zatoichi now…
