- who knows why there isnt a “good” dvd out there yet, at least QT tried, [/quote]
He obviously didn’t try hard enough. He has the cash. He can buy the rights himself.
[quote]3) it was released sooner,[/quote]
Internationally speaking, you are correct.But it took 2 years to get an official release in the U.S. outside of the Palm Springs Film Festival.
[quote]and thats why it was even nominated for an oscar.[/quote]
But it didn’t win, because no one heard about it, because it got no FYC ads and almost no AMPAS screenings.
[quote]why should it be QT’s fault???[/quote]
Because after Iron Monkey, it’s fairly obvious that Quentin is Harvey’s lapdog, and sniffs out which Asian films to bury and mutilate. I fucking hate that piece of shit telling me, “Check out Drunken Master 2 or Supercop”, when only the dubbed and edited versions are available.
[quote]qt is NOT doing friday the 13th.[/quote]
Yeah, you got me there. It’s a shame it was only a rumour, cus I would’ve had another reason to trash him.
[quote]I think Warner Bros. has rights for Pedicab Driver. They just never released it. [/quote]
Considering how Dimension fucked up Project A, I’m not surprised Warner would have a reason to release it here. Although I was at a screening Sammo attended which seemed to be packed enough to suggest there’s
some audience for Sammo’s work. You’d think after FOX released Eastern Condors here, that WB would get the picture, but I’m still waiting for CBS to put Martial Law out on dvd as well.
