Maybe. We ARE Leone fans, after all.

Erickson has some nice things to say about Mike Siegels's contributions to the extras.

Nice extras, just a shame about the film. Looks so green. Kino decided against adjusting the picture as with their GBU release and left as is.

Erickson keeps comparing to the MGM, but makes no mention of the spectacular Ripley’s. Perhaps cuz he is only discussing US releases. (Though the main feature in the Ripley’s is region-free).

Yeah I brought that up in the comments but he never responded. I don't know how you can compare two problematic transfers and not mention there's a virtually perfect one readily available.

You're being far too easy on him, Jordan. It's far from a "great review as always".

In fact, ignoring the phenomenal efforts and the resulting product of the 2007 restoration makes his review thoughtless and careless. If his excuse is that he restricts his reviews to official US releases (I don't know if that's true as I haven't read his reviews on other films) then that's unacceptable. The Ripley's BD is region free, it includes an English track and it's been available for nearly a decade. How can you NOT at least acknowledge its existence as a stellar presentation and consequently a fan favourite?

"It’s all too easy for armchair critics (and some obnoxious online trolls) to second-guess learned experts working with original elements. Film restorers and colorists have no reason to ‘sabotage’ anything. My normal response is to defer to these more experienced professionals."

So with this and so many other films being sabotaged by the "experienced professionals", still his normal response is to defer to them?? What if, in some instances, the "armchair critics" have become the "learned experts working with original elements"? What then?

At least he recognizes Mike Siegel's quality work.

Ha, yes I was trying to show some rare restraint.. I was happy to see him acknowledging Mike's work and I've actually had some correspondence with him in the past about other films..he actually transcribed a deleted scene from an original studio script he owns for me (night and the city) He also referenced all of our teams research on his blog a while back... So just trying to be civil... I think it's possible he doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds him. But I don't know that for sure. My main goal was to make sure the point about the Ripley's 2007 was at least brought up. I really don't like the disparaging comment either but getting used to that kind of negativity when you try to point people in the right directions.

At least Robert Harris denounced the Kino color:

Fair enough, I had a hunch you might have some history with him and prefer to keep your feedback civil. I'm giad that you pointed out the existence of the Italian/German BD for him and others who visit his site.

I really don't like the disparaging comment either but getting used to that kind of negativity when you try to point people in the right directions.

The negativity only frustrates me when some people consciously dismiss the evidence that's been presented to them on a silver platter (i.e. your blog and our forum posts). Surely, Glen Erickson has seen the information and videos posted on your blog. Even if your focus has not been on the colour controversy it should be quite apparent to him that there are enthusiasts not affiliated with the studio/restoration house who know what they're talking about and back it up with evidence so the disparaging comment is unwarranted and unnecessary.

Someone has posted below Erickson's review about seeing a longer version of 120 mins on a German channel in 1999.  The extra stuff included the scene where he steals the poncho from a soldier by the river and a longer beating scene. He posted this3 years ago. When did the outtakes  surface...4 years ago?

Yeah more outtakes came out for the 2014 release trailers. Obviously he's making a huge claim... And the way he's written it is pretty off putting. Frayling has been describing that opening for years because it was in the script he has, long before 2014...that's how I immediately recognized it. Likewise the extended dinner scene has been talked about (but has never turned up in the deleted footage or stills). I don't think his claim is legit, what would be amazing is if one of these companies would release the full scenes as an extra, since obviously all the raw footage not used for the film still exists (not the case with Gbu and Oatitw). I don't know what the 3 min on the new Kino disc is comprised of. I'm hopeful Kino at least did some investigating for FAFDM and maybe some of that deleted footage still survives, there seems to be a lot that was cut from that film.

Yes I am sceptical about this. I think he's seen a script. Surely we would have heard about it in this day and age.  I got in touch with him and he said the Leone family or Cinecita have it and maybe Prof Frayling!!

Interested to find out if there's anything new on the 3 mins on the Kino disc.
