Has there yet to be a definitive “no” on the prospect of Kino doing ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST? I can’t remember.

Importing is a great solution to finding some titles that may never be put out in the States, and likewise for people importing discs from the US that aren't available abroad.
I'm not region-free, so the only imports I own are region A discs. Some of them I ordered from Amazon (US), so I didn't really import them, someone else did Some of them I ordered from Amazon UK, and I got Cross of Iron from Amazon Japan. It's pretty easy to get these types of discs when available, but these days I prefer to wait for the US release. Lord knows there are more than enough domestic releases to spend my money on.

A couple of sale pickups:



The unbelievably awkwardly titled Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend was one of Disney's problematic attempts to update their family fare for an audience that increasingly avoided films with the Walt Disney logo (it was released by Disney’s ‘adult’ label Touchstone with a much more deserved PG rating). On one level it’s an apparently family-friendly Gorgo-esque tale of Sean Young and William Katt discovering a would-be cute baby dinosaur in the African jungle and trying to protect it from Patrick McGoohan’s ruthless palaeontologist, but it’s also set in a much more realistic Africa than you’d have seen had Uncle Walt been calling the shots, rife with civil war, dictatorships, corruption and violence. Think E.T. with AK47s. When Baby’s pop gets machine-gunned to death by government troops and carrion picks at the carcass, it’s certainly a reminder that executive producer Roger Spottiswoode cut his teeth as one of Sam Peckinpah’s editors on Straw Dogs and The Getaway (Spottiswoode’s vision for the film may have been even darker – he was originally pegged to direct as well before ‘creative differences’ led to him being replaced before shooting).

Unfortunately, undercutting the realism is Baby itself. While the Mokele Mobembe, Africa’s own land-based Loch Ness Monster, may be a dinosaur, it’s not one of the really cool ones like a meat-eating Tyrannosaurus Rex, Allosaurus or Velociraptor but a Brontosaurus (the name’s back in fashion now it’s been decided that the Apatosaurus is a different species), famed for lumbering along while chomping on the local flora and fauna. To make matters worse, since this is pre-CGi, and with stop-motion too complicated for the difficult Ivory Coast jungle locations and Jurassic Park technology still a long way off, that means animatronics and men in rubber suits. While the grown-up critters just about pass muster, junior is a particularly unconvincing bit of rubber and latex with big eyes and limited expression…



As a result the film is particularly schizophrenic as it hovers between the realistic and the ridiculous: it’s too violent for the grownups and the beastie’s too childish for the teens, though enough of it does work that it still manages to score some points as it veers between sporadically guilty pleasure and decently crafted adventure that it’s curiously hard to dislike. Jerry Goldsmith’s score is an interesting bridge between his work on Legend and his subsequent score for Rambo: First Blood Part II, with some good action cues and a fine, albeit brief, fanfare for the dinosaurs. And you do get to see the writer of Gosford Park and Downton Abbey chased by an angry momma dinosaur…

Kino’s Region A-locked Bluray offers a modest upgrade in picture quality from Mill Creek’s deleted region-free release – it appears to be the same master with a slightly better encode, with the same somewhat tinny sound on the end credits (though unlike Mill Creek’s release, which cut off the final crescendo a bit abruptly, this time the final fanfare in the end credits is intact). Unlike Mill Creek’s disc, it includes the original trailer and new interviews with director Bill Norton and William Katt, with the emphasis on the rigors of the location shoot (Katt revealing that Norton had to direct parts of the film from a stretcher after finding “worms in his pooh”).



Occupying equally undeserved slots in the original Fifty Worst Movies of All Time and Complex Magazine’s 50 Best Blaxploitation Films of All Time, Trouble Man has all the ingredients for a decent genre outing but fall flat for far too much of its running time. The plot and setup are certainly promising enough. Robert Hooks’ stone cold fixer rights wrongs and does favours from his throne in a pool room until he’s approached by Paul Winfield and Ralph Waite’s hustlers who want him to find out who’s ripping off their floating crap games – which quickly turns into a murder that leads to a gang war with the local Mr Big, with Mr T in the crosshairs of both the cops and Julius Harris’ Big (he doesn’t bother with the Mister). Which, in the hands of Hogan’s Heroes co-star turned director Ivan Dixon plays out a lot less interestingly than it should.

While there’s nothing especially terrible about the film apart from Waite’s performance and wardrobe, it’s woefully short on energy for its first 56 minutes and even once Mr T gets round to permanently taking care of business, Dixon takes the scenic route – sometimes literally, as in a sequence where he clearly fell so in love with the architecture of the then-new Century City that Hooks, having just vowed instant righteous vengeance, spends a minute-and-a-half just walking through it before getting down to a couple of minutes more stalking and infiltration when on his way to the final showdown, which slows the momentum way down. There’s enough action in the last half hour to keep it from dragging too much but it’s no surprise that Marvin Gaye’s score – his only one – is better remembered than the film. Dixon went on to do some good work as a director in 70s TV shows like The Rockford Files that showed a better sense of pacing and energy, but this is one of those films that gives you just enough reason to keep on watching but not enough to ever feel like watching it again. File under one-and-done.

Kino Lorber’s Region A-locked Bluray offers a for the most part decent but not outstanding widescreen transfer (though there is one weird moment of video blur in an early pool hall shot) with audio commentary by Nathaniel Thompson and Howard S. Berger, original trailer minus titles and narration and trailers for Cotton Comes to Harlem, Across 110th Street and Report to the Commissioner and the five-minute exhibitors’ showreel for Truck Turner as extras.

I had a cart ready but a few "real life" things got in the way of me participating in the sale this time.

Next sale, though... I will be ready!

Does anyone honestly want Kino to handle more important Spaghetti westerns?

Are there issues with the current release of “Once Upon a Time in the West” that need to be fixed? I’m unfamiliar with problems with that release.

Aw, just when I said I was done importing discs, along comes this:

Saw the new restoration of The Sacrifice a few months ago on the big screen. It looked really nice. I can't wait to revisit this.

I'm hoping SAM'S SON (Michael Landon) will get a Blu-Ray as I'm sure Paramount currently owns the film.
