    Started on a little Guillermo del Toro selection for my 4K collection: The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth, and the two Hellboy films. After Pinocchio drops and if we get a release for The Devil’s Backbone, I’ll be set!

    Not surprisingly I ordered a back up DVD for this, my fave movie:

    75b5ac4c-3df1-4df0-b9d5-a798d7eff1b6.jpg

    Watching it now, and the aspect ratio is slightly more opened up than the Blu-ray. That means more of Lana! :D
    There's a few scratches in the trnasfer used early on, which I kind of like and gives it a filmic feel.
    Overall I think this dvd from 2004 is brighter and crisper than the Blu-ray.

    I can't get enough of this noir and the completest in me is contemplating seeking out the old colorized VHS from 1990.

    Haha! So true, @Dwayne. Big Audrey Totter fan, too. Love her in LADY IN THE LAKE and especially TENSION.

    I've probably watched POSTMAN 10 times just this year. One of the reasons being..............

    PSA for anyone who loves classic films: the Barnes & Noble 50% off Criterion Sale started today! My haul was Wall-E, Blow Out, Thelma & Louise, and The Others, all in 4K. With that, I should be all caught up on the available 4Ks Criterion has that I wanted. I’m refraining from buying Blu-Rays or DVDs these days - just being patient for future 4K releases while building that library.

    Yes, that version is one of my all-time favourites, along with Michael York's and Gérard Barray's and Mylène Demongeot's.

    Found this in a small videostore, figured / "I already have the Blacula collection, so why not this one ?", and bought it :

    I need to get Lester films. I love Christopher lee and Oliver Reed in those. Also it's been decades since I've seen them.

    I concur!
    Though I am intrigued by the latest French version with Eva Green as Milady!
    If I recall Director Peter Hyams ( Capricorn One, Outland) did a not so good version too many years ago?

    The Eva Green films look great, still not watched them yet i will likely buy them both at some point.

    I have never seen the Peter Hyams The Musketeer, I completely forgot about it, the reviews are not very good.

    Classic. Indeed it is, and I’ll keep it going so I know I’m secure. Guillermo del Toro recently spoke about it and said something cool, something like physical media owners are “custodians” of movies / movie history, and it’s a responsibility.

    Christopher Nolan recently was also encouraging people to buy a physical copy as apposed to a digital streamed version of Oppenheimer.

    The more time has passed the prouder of my physical media collection I am, I also bought over 100 CD's in the last 6 months and gone retro with a 90's CD player and passive speaker's. Despite owning 10 smart speakers I rarely listen to music on them now.

    Hitchcock finished his career strongly IMO with Frenzy and Family Plot, Barry Foster is very convincing in Frenzy.

    I have most of Hitch's films on DVD and Bluray I have only got a few in 4K, I recently bought Psycho on that format.

    I've never had a physical copy of Assignment K (1968), and had planned on getting an older DVD release of this mostly forgotten spy film starring Stephen Boyd and Camilla Sparv for Christmas. I quite like this film, and like OHMSS, I try to watch it during the Christmas holidays.

    imprint-assignment-k.jpg?resize=1080%2C608&ssl=1

    Anyway, I was happy to discover before buying a DVD copy that Imprint Films have just released a worldwide first release of Assignment K on Blu-ray. With only 1500 copies available, I jumped at the chance to get my own copy, which I got in the mail just a few days ago. I'm yet to see actual screenshots of the restored film anywhere online, but I'm sure this will be a good high-definition presentation.

    Earlier this year, I also found and bought a movie tie-in paperback of the book the film is based upon, Department K by Hartley Howard, which I'll be reading during Christmas.
