Default Rurouni Kenshin - Part I: Origins (2012)

I'm very happy to finally see the live-action films for Rurouni Kenshin make their way to the states. They've been available overseas (including region free Steelbooks in the UK from Warner) for a few years now. Kenshin is a hugely popular manga, and anime series, and the live-action adaptation is excellent. The BD is licensed by Funimation,and will come with a UV copy as well.


Summary

Quote:
Fans of the samurai genre will be awestruck by this riveting film adaption of the classic franchise!

In the wake of a brutal civil war, the legendary and feared killer Kenshin Himura throws down his sword and vows to turn his back on bloodshed. Choosing instead to live his life as a peaceful wanderer, Kenshin soon finds that the world around him is rapidly changing and not for the better. A sadistic drug lord, Kanryu, oppresses the people, poisoning them with opium and stealing what little they have left. When this greed-driven monster threatens the beautiful kendo instructor Kaoru, Kenshin can no longer stand idly by. Together with his street fighter comrade Sanosuke, Kenshin sets his sights on a showdown with Kanryu and his deadly henchmen. In a staggering action sequence for the ages, longtime fans will find out if Kenshin can survive his promise to face his own blade before spilling the blood of his enemies!

I've had the trilogy steelbooks fm the UK (region free) for quite some time now. Really surprised none of the US distributors really caught on fast enough with the more popular live-action adaptation titles such as this, Attack on Titan, Bakuman, Black Butler, Parasyte and the sequels to Crow Zero. I guess they don't sell as well as anticipated.

I've been watching the anime on Netflix. This movie looks good. I heard it's a hit and miss when anime are translated into an actual non animated movie.

I personally like all of the 3 live action Kenshin movies. Will double dip if the extras are worthy.

Does anyone know what are the chances that the english subtitles appear inside the imageframe, above the scopebars? Because on the UK disc its split which is kinda annoying

I've had all three steelbooks for a while now. I'm hoping this news means my digital copies will finally show up in Vudu since they are in my Flixster account and UV locker but won't work.

I have the Hong Kong trilogy boxset already, but some folks are in for a treat.

Such a joy to see a modern Japanese blockbuster(s), that doesn't look like it was made for a dollar and shot on some shit consumer grade HD cam.

Does this mean the picture quality will suffer?
I watched the imports a bunch of times, still haven't decided if I should try the FUNimation version yet.
The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... and in binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.
Films I'd like to see on Blu-Ray Disc:
Scarface (1932)
ABC Weekend Specials (1977Ė1995) [TV Movies]

I donít believe anyone that refuses to post a source, they just like spreading FUD.

Same for me.

All three films are available on Vudu now but do not show up as purchased on Vudu for me so it looks like I'm stuck with Flixster.
