Big "DITTO" here.

Today the dogsled finally arrived - delayed a bit by the lack of snow up here this year - and I finally got to see this thing. What a hoot of a movie and all-round fine disc. I'm quickly running out of superlatives for TT's handling of these half-forgotten catalogue gems...

As impressed as I was by SPHE's now de rigeur PQ, it was the AQ that really floored me. I don't have anything in my system remotely capable of making an audiophile drool, and yet even I noticed a walloping punch from the sonics...especially Alex North's rousing score.

Yee-Haw! And then some...

Good movie, looks great on BD and some really solid performances - but that ending ...?
[Show spoiler]No musical climax? Just a sudden black screen and ... gone?

Fabulous looking film and blu ray! However, TT are scumbags for charging so much. I decided to sell my copy and buy a couple of blu rays with the proceedings

I enjoyed this one a lot too. Interesting use of surreal trick photography in a couple of scenes.

Last night, I watched my Twilight Time Blu-ray of Bite the Bullet.

This is one of the unsung gems of the Twilight Time catalog, in my opinion.

Bite the Bullet, which is based on an actual event, tells the story of a 700-mile horse race across the American West in 1906, and of the disparate group of participants and their reasons for being in the race. Gene Hackman and James Coburn play seasoned veterans of the Rough Riders (1st United States Volunteer Cavalry) who balance their longtime friendship with a spirited rivalry as they compete in the race for different purposes. The beautiful Candice Bergen plays an ex-prostitute who has joined the race so that she can use the prize money to help her husband. Jan-Michael Vincent plays a tough kid whose ego gets ahead of his capabilities at every turn. Ben Johnson, who is one of my favorite supporting actors of the western genre, plays an aging cowboy who wants recognition from winning. Ian Bannen plays an Englishman who competes just for the sport. Mario Arteaga plays a tough-as-nails Mexican who struggles with a toothache during the event. Dabney Coleman plays a wealthy contender with a championship horse that seems guaranteed to get him across the finish line before the others.

During its action-packed run time, Bite the Bullet ponders animal cruelty, racism, camaraderie and sportsmanship, and even the mythology of the Old West heroes. Each of the main actors get their share of pivotal scenes, and the fun of the movie lies in observing how the clashing personalities come together in times of distress.

Since I am an ultrarunner, I became immersed in this movie because of the endurance aspect of the story. Back in 2012, I finished a 100-mile race and, as such, qualified to compete in the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, which is a pinnacle event in our sport (Sadly, my lottery number for the event was not drawn.). The Western States race had its origins as a 100-mile horse race, but one participant completed the course on foot after his horse experienced an injury. Most don't realize this, but people can actually complete long distances faster than horses, because our physiques enable us to undergo such exertion in a more biologically efficient manner. I thought about this several times while watching Bite the Bullet, since the movie pulls no punches with regard to the toll that this race takes on the horses themselves.

Bite the Bullet also reminded me of a great book, Flanagan's Run by Tom McNab, which is about a trans-American foot race where many runners compete to finish the distance for a huge cash prize. The stories have many parallels, mainly with regard to the reasoning of each participant for being in the event, and with regard to the outcome (without revealing spoilers).

This Twilight Time Blu-ray looks beautiful in terms of technical presentation, and it sounds great.
