If I recall correctly, my package was 50 euros. No grave.

All these people involved in Sad Hill Unearthed would be great candidates to join the SLWB ... anytime anyone is communication with them, please invite them to SLWB, tell them to share the inio with friends and invite them to sign up  Smiley

OK, we all know Modelo beer uses Ecstasy of Gold as their theme music.

Last night at WNBA Final on ESPN, Ecstasy of Gold played just prior to the national anthem.

I am impressed that you watch WNBA  Wink

I didn’t get the grave; maybe people who got the grave don’t get the poster.

I always put in my 2 cents, but the only solution would be founding a label with and some otheers and do it ourselves...

When I watch the film, I always watch the German BD which is pretty good.
When I watch GBU I watch the privately made BD, which has the right sound & color.
I need a solution for GIU LA TESTA though, both BD's stink.

I have never seeb the German FOD, but have you seen the Ripley’s it looks great.

For Giu La Testa, I’ve only seen two versions: the MGM DVD (included in “The Sergio Leone Anthology” boxset) and the MGM BRD. I haven’t delved into any discussion about the image; the audio is so screwed up ...

I received a movie poster in the mail today. The image is an earth-colored picture of Eastwood; look closely and you’ll see that it is actually comprised of the graves and shrubbery of Sad Hill.

On back is an autograph from the filmmaker, with a note, “Thank you for making it happen!”

Doctor Zhivago 7.5/10 - second viewing. Rating was same as first viewing.

Incredible visually (nobody was better at that than Lean) ;terrific performances, particularly Steiger and Courtenay; but the story just didn’t interest me at all.

mike,

I know you are only dealing with the bonus features and not the movie itself, but if you have any way of finding out, or any influence at all, I really hope they do not release a piss version of the movie.

DJ and I saw FOD at MoMA in New York shortly after the Cannes “restoration.” It looked like piss. Terrible. The Italian Ripley’s BRD looks so amazing, why is there need for a new release? Of course, great new bonus features can be a great reason. But I hope they don’t screw with the feature. Best would be if they released the Ripley’s version plus the new bonus features. But if they release this piss version - even if they make it a little less pissy than the Cannes version - I’ll be mighty pissed off!

Well I didn't buy it, but I have it of course
since I worked on it. Right now I'm working
on the new FISTFUL release (supplements,
I have nothing to do with the presentation
of the films...)


Did you watch the GBU?

I just wanted to know if anyone else had it, so that the board members weren’t only relying on my review in deciding whether (not to) purchase it.

Main question is this: the 2017 BRD definitely looks yellower than the original MGM DVD and BRD, but is it AS yellow as the 2014 version? I don’t know, because I only watched the 2014 version once for a few seconds and turned it off in anger and never watched it again.
One thing that really irritates me about the yellow in this 2017 release is that the sky doesn’t look blue. In previous versions of the movie, the sky looks a realistic blue.

My guess - and this is TOTALLY a guess - is that the 2017 disc retains some but not all of the piss; it’s crappy yellow but not AS yellow as the 2014 version. Can anyone confirm this?

Has anyone other than me bought the new Kino Lorber BRD of GBU that is the subject of this thread?

Chuck Low, who most famously played Morrie the wig salesman in Goodfellas, has passed away at 89. R.I.P.

There's also a Leone connection: Low had an uncredited role in OUATIA as the father of Debra and Fat Moe. I believe he has just one scene, on the morning of the Pesach holiday, where he hands Debra the key to watch the store as he walks with Moe to the synagogue.

Low had a significant supporting role in The Mission.

According to IMDB, he appeared in 8 films and 4 TV series (in one of those series, Tribeca, he appeared in multiple episodes). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0522797/
