Yes, they have it on still. Shipping internationally can be a challenge though. I?m fortunate to have family over there.

Mike, you should have given us a heads up that this was released in Australia already!

Hmm interesting. And there are also pool tables with blue felt in real life as well. In any case, the color looked great to me and I wouldn?t have questioned anything had it not been for all the stuff swirling on the internet about what the ?correct? color scheme is. To be clear, I didn?t watch the 4K version because I don?t have a player.

I was just reading that same interview with Alex Cox. That was what prompted me to email criterion. Maybe He knows something we don?t, or maybe he is just buying into the internet rumors.

On the topic of Alex Cox, I recently bought the new Criterion Blu-ray of Walker. I?m looking forward to revisiting it.

Watched it. The image quality looked great to me. I actually think they got the balance just right with the pool tables being green (not blue) while still managing to keep the whites from turning yellow.

I emailed Criterion. Apparently they have no plans to release PG&BTK.

I can only hope they just aren?t allowed to speak about it yet, but it doesn?t sound promising.

Always the TCM preview cut.

My only two options are that or Seydor since all I have is the two disc US DVD.

I don?t have the theatrical or (unsurprisingly) the TV cut.

True, there isn't a director's cut. (and certainly not the 103 minute version, which made Peckinpah sue the studio!)

The preview version is the closest. But it wasn't fine tuned and also included some alternate takes
that probably would have been altered by him.
The 2005 cut unfortunately has some deliberate editing choices which are hard to accept (including some sloppy misttakes)

That?s my take on it too.

No, even better, they accepted that the score is hopelessly muddled, and ordered instead a new score by, yes, yes, by Christopher Caliendo. This will be a stunner ...

Ha ha. Too many of these this April 1st

Oh yes!

Netflix. Was a change after watching nothing but ?Drive to survive? there for the past month or so.

Just bought the blu-ray. I will report back once I?ve watched it.

Just watched this. If it weren?t so badly mistitled, it probably would have received better reviews. There?s some really great old footage of Corbucci, and while Tarantino doesn?t bring to light many actual Corbucci facts that I hadn?t heard about before, it was interesting to listen to his take on the man.

A title true to the actual nature of the documentary would be ?Quentin Tarantino on Sergio Corbucci?.

And the first 10 minutes is truly inspired. If only the rest could have been that good ?

They should have left the theatrical version alone.
It is the " director's cut".

 I think you mean the TCM cut, don?t you? For me, that is the director?s cut. It?s the last one he touched.

So are these Criterion rumors true then?

Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately it?s blocked in my part of the world.
