so it's the same thing as the US Paramount one?

In other words, no matter how much of a fan (or "completist") I may be, there's no point in getting this new Italian blu-ray if I already have the US Paramount one?

RE: run times: Listed run times are as likely to be inaccurate as accurate. I never trust a word about listed run times; the only way to know is when you actually play the movie in your blu-ray player; or if you check a site like DVD Beaver, which actually lists the real run time and aspect ratio, rather than repeating what it says on the box.

Possible but unlikely.
They won't use the Paramount master (why should they), from which many say that the colors are wrong. At least the colors were so far pretty different from what was released in Italy.

If it's the shorter version it probably contains the 70 missing sec from the first scene and will have the correct closing music. But I doubt that they will skip the rising scene.

But, as I already said, despite the listed runtime I expect them to release the long version again. Unless they only have the rights for the theatrical version.

Grin Grin Grin I enjoyed that a lot. Also I liked getting confirmation that many on this board are Nazis (Commu-nazis, nicht wahr?).

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

good stuff.

two little changes I'd suggest:

firstly, the opening moments, with the guy pointing to the map, just doesn't fit well with the subtitles announcing the BRD. They could easily make it fit by changing the subtitles to discuss which territories the new BRD is being released in. if it says, eg. "The new Region 1 BRD, released in Country X ..." that would fit perfectly with the pointing to the map.

And secondly, HOW COULD HITLER FORGET TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE COMMENTARY? Alex Friggin Cox inventing a continuity problem that doesn't exist (IDIOT!); John Carpenter using all his time to say either, "That must be a screen" or "Caludia is beautiful" or "I haven't watched the movie lately"; and some idiot taking a piece of an interview of John Milius that had nothing to do with OUATITW ( it's him describing how Leone asked him to work on the script for OUATIA but ... I DIDN'T HAVE TIME SO I COULDN'T DO IT Grin NOT fit it i his schedule to work with Leone) and slapping that on there as a supposed bit of "commentary."

Oh well, I guess that down in that bunker, Hitler didn't have time for commentaries.

anyway ....

yeah, good stuff  Afro

It is common knowledge that Hitler never listened to any audio commentary. Maybe he knew that most are a slight waste of our time, and that it is better to spare the time to watch another film.

Hmm, his justified anger reminds me a bit on Rumpelstiltskin ...

well he was right not to listen to the commentary-by-committee on OUATITW.

Commentaries may often be a waste of time, but there are a few exceptions. Anything with Frayling is great. Eddie Muller has some great noir commentaries. I recently listened to Roger Ebert's commentary on Casablanca, it is great.

Yes, some are good. Maybe even the majority. But I mostly don't have the time to listen to them.
I also don't care much for all that bonus material on the discs. But then the bonus material is too often really a waste of time.

Frayling's commentary for OUTW was disappointing. He often describes only what I see on the screen instead of contributing something original. That was a not expected negative surprise. But I like his books very much.

yes I've heard some people complain about that RE: his OUATITW commentary.

I don't really remember, I only watched the commentary on OUATITW once, that commentary-by-committee was awful even when the individual speakers are good, the commentaries that are pieced together from individuals speaking separately are crap. Having multiple people sitting together in the same room, so they are interacting with each other, that is fine. I have listened to all his other commentaries many times actually, CoR only once; but FOD, FAFDM, GBU, and DYS I've listened to each of them many times, and they are all great.
