Tarantino Collection DVD Box


#1

hi there.

you know that in the UK, Reservoir Dogs is not published by Artisan. That means, the brits among us won’t get that great Special Edition that was released in the US, Australian and soon in Germany, too.

BUT they always had a good Dogs DVD, though. The british Momentum Pictures Reservoir Dogs DVD always had 2.35:1 transfer and is a great DVD to own.



BUT also: Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction are released by Buena Vista in Britain, too. That means, if you live in England or elsewhere, you can get the BRITISH Special Editions, which are identic to the US ones, for about half the price or so…



Now in England you even get something you only get in England: A Tarantino DVD Collection in a paper drawer and Tarantino signature!!!

6 DISCS FOR NOW ONLY 12 POUNDS! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?



If you have this box, would you share your comments on this box please? I am curious about how the packaging is or if there are posters inside or what.


#2

yeh i got that box

its pretty fuckin cool its got the pulp and jackie SE and a vanilla resvoir dogs dvd the picture and sound on dogs is really good though.

sadly there is no poster with it that would have been sweet.

they only made like 50,000 and i have number 59034.

its got a signiture on the front and a description of the disks on the back.

It’s cool, but one, most of us have all three movies, and two, it’s in a different region so it couldn’t play in American dvd players unless you had a Region-free player. The box looks fuckin tight tho! :smiley:


#4

yeah if you live in the US you don’t need that box. This topic (or that offer) mainly adresses to UK or European residents.



The Jackie and Pulp SEs from the UK are technically even better than the US ones because of the PAL format.



The box is awesome, yes


#5

Oh, my bad.



But why do you say the PAL format is better? What are the advantages?


#6

uh… that requires me to do some research.

it’s something like this:

there are more lines per image in NTSC, which makes an NTSC movie 1 longer and 2 somehow blurrier.

PAL has a better image quality as long as a PAL master is used. if its just an NTSC-to-PAL conversion, there’s not that much difference.



Let me look for a link that explains it…



i think this page is pretty good:

Hey.

Anyone know the cheapest place to buy this thing?

Kelkoo doesn’t give any matches.

So now that Miramax is supposedly releasing the Tarantino Collection in the US, are the editions in the collection gonna be the collector’s edition ones that you can buy now, or is it gonna be new dvd editons?

where have you heard that? i mean, Miramax doesn’t own the rights to Reservoir Dogs, so its like in the UK: bizarre that Dogs is even in the pack

Here’s where I found out about the US release:

‘Here’s how Rick Sands, Miramax’s chief operating officer, explained it to The New York Times last week:



" Vol. 1' goes out,Vol. 2’ goes out, then Vol. 1 Special Edition,'Vol. 2 Special Edition,’ the two-pack, then the Tarantino collection as a boxed set for Christmas," he said. “It’s called multiple bites at the apple.”'





And I found another thing about it:
