  1. I'd like to make a citation on these words here:


    'I can see you have a great deal of water in your personality. Water never waits. It changes shape and flows around things, and finds the secret paths no one else has thought about -- the tiny hole through the roof or the bottom of the box. There's no doubt it's the most versatile of the five elements. It can wash away earth; it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural complement, can't survive without being nurtured by water. And yet, you haven't drawn on those strengths in living your life, have you?'(125)

    So, I'd really appreciate it if someone has the book and can tell me in which page this appears, as well the publisher, and the place and year of publication of the book he/she has.



  2. For those that are interested Shout will release a bluray of

    • DRACULA (1979) (Collector’s Edition) – John Badham’s slick and sophisticated telling of the legendary story flies into our midst in a 2-disc set. Includes a new transfer of the theatrical version as seen in theaters in 1979 with full color as well as the alternate director-approved version of the film created in 1991 for home video with a muted color palette. Expected Release: Nov 2019.

  3. King Solomon's Mines (1985)


    I bought the bluray (along with its sequel Allan Quatermain and the lost city of gold).

    Well, it surely isn't a very good movie. It's a bit entertaining but I had it in my mind from my childhood as something better.

    I enjoy though the Jerry Goldsmith score and especially the theme which I like almost as the Indiana Jones theme.

    One thing I don't like about the score though it's that he used a Ride of the Valkyries variation as the Germans' theme.

  4. 2 pieces of news:

    for whoever already bought Kino's Nixon and Shout's Earthquake, there are replacement programmes due to out of sync audio in the extended cut of Nixon, and wrong aspect ratio of Earthquake.



    The Secret Ways comes in Bluray from a 4K scan of the original negative. (i hope that means that a cd release is imminent!)



    This will be the earliest Williams film available on Bluray.

  5. 49 minutes ago, crocodile said:

    Sampled both of those. They look gorgeous. The standard Blu-ray included is also brand new transfer.





    Just for everybody's information, BATMAN has a brand new audio remix with new effects and no inclusion of the original mix.

    (edit: Oh, I see it was mentioned earlier)


    Also, I'd say I prefer the old blurays based on comparisons like this in which the new one has black crush:
