Who can report on the Italian GBU Blu-ray?

Whoa, nice offer for the DVDs there: http://www.amazon.it/Sergio-Leone-Capolavori-Aldo-Giuffre/dp/B003VY4O2C/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1291584106&sr=1-1

6 DVDs - with I presume all of his movies - for 20.60 Euros, free shipping.

Sorry for the unintentional usurpation of the BR thread.

You might have noticed it already - I live in the past.

I'm so glad they've finally got amazon.it

I used to use IBS.it and the shipping was so expensive!

I have it. No english soundtrack and picture quality puts MGM BD to shame. What else would you like to know?

I believe so. The only audio options are Italian mono PCM and Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. No english subtitles, either.

Shame. I thought as much! Ah well, guess I will go for the MGM releases then.

If the PQ is really that much better than the MGM I'll have to get a copy. We've never had true sub-titles for this title anyway; the MGM uses dub-titles.

Cool! Very thank you. Weird how the DNR screws with the flesh tones.

Well, I know what I'm getting myself for Christmas . . .

Might want to bear Jordan Krug's comments in mind from the GBU blu-ray thread:

Uh oh....while the mondo disc is jaw dropping sharp and the color is stellar, there's a big issue with it...I just posted this on the avs forum:

There's a big problem with this new mondo transfer....I'm assuming because this was from the original negative (and not the mgm interpositive based version) that each cut is glued together or spliced together and that over time this has warped the first two frames of the incoming shot and the last two frames of the outgoing shot, because EVERY CUT JUMPS....mostly each cut slightly shifts or warps, but literally there are cuts where the frame jumps a 3rd up the screen - and you can see the top of the frame at the bottom of the screen on the cut! (as if the film is out of it's register as it's being scanned) Case in point, look at the 2nd or 3rd cut in the scene where tuco is shot of his horse (and then after Blondie/Eastwood comes in for the first time). Tuco reaches for his gun, and the last 2 frames jump a 3rd up the screen, his boot is now on the bottom of the screen divided by a black line (a film frame line) - it would be great if someone who can capture br could post those frames up....



ARRRRGGG I really can't believe they would have let this go...they must have decided it wasn't worth the money to fix it...it's such a amazing transfer otherwise....
