That has its benefits 'cos his movies would be mine and I could watch the shit out of everything ever.

Spoiler:
 

lol, FFS. Some Blu-ray there, guys. Perhaps the worst part about it is they're claiming the original materials were HD direct from Fortune Star in HK, but if the actual HK release looks HD but the US release is clearly a shitty standard definition upscale... Yeah, I don't know what dumbass is willing to accept that tripe.

This is uglier than that Lone Wolf and Cub box set.

holy poop, the Italians really fudged up on this one.

It's clearly a better master than what was used for the US release, but the disc encoding is terrible. Huge macroblocking and other artifacts.

Hopefully somebody will do this master justice, because this movie desperately needs a grade A Blu-ray.

OH MY FUUUUUUUUUUCK

I need In the Mouth of Madness ASAP. This is how I wish the other recent Carpenter Blu-rays had looked.

Holy fartballs. This looks like it could be one of the most gorgeous Blu-rays yet.

I don't know how to feel about Synapse fixing the dubbing sync errors, though. Those are just inherent to pretty much every English dub of an Italian movie of that era. It's cool in a way, but kind of needlessly altering things that perhaps should be left untouched.

Ah well, I was fine with the Evil Dead movies being altered and fixed on Blu-ray, I'll be fine with this.

Synapse procuring Suspiria and doing a brand-new 2K scan of the negative with the help of two Technicolor branches is by far the best news of ever, by the way. If there's someone who's not gonna fuck this up, it's Don May—unless he starts doing "sync fixing" and other such revisionist bullshit.

All part of studios' bullshit to slowly move the home movie viewing from physical products you rent and buy to dumb digital download bullshit. I suppose they figure if they can throw downloads in as an "extra," it'll slowly warm people up to the idea.

With most UltraViolet copies that come with Blu-rays, you get 1080p versions to stream and download through VUDU, so they've been trying to sweeten the deal by offering higher quality, though still not coming to the high bitrates of Blu-ray.

I probably shouldn't be redeeming any of the codes, but I compulsively do just because it's part of the package I paid for, but so far it hasn't done me any good.

I hate those things. Namely, I hate the fact that them being there factors into upping the price that I pay for something I never have and never will use.

I'd rather have that than the DVD they pack in with the Blu-Ray.

Way so, dude. A good Blu-ray averages a bitrate around 30 megabits per second, whereas VUDU HDX (1080p) hovers around 5. Far more data being pumped out at a time, which makes for less compression artifacts and that.

Plus, Blu-ray's physical. Fudge that download banana buffalo bullshit.

I came multiple times watching Demons. The PQ and US soundtrack made me appreciate it a lot more. One of the nicest looking Blu-rays by far.

Watched most of Just Before Dawn, wondering why the video was so rough, before realizing that only the "original" cut on the disc is restored and in high def. Not the extended cut.

There's also the fact there's two encodes on a single-layered disc. Rife with compression artifacts and that.

I want it. I WANT IT. But twenty bucks.

Still, it's a favorite, so I might have to give in.

It bothers me that nobody ever asks Linnea Quigley to get nude in interviews. If she can do it in the movies, she can now.
