Nice, that only leaves The Dead Pool left to come out. Hope they pack that with the documentary in the Ultimate collection. Looks like buying these double features separately works out cheeaper than buying the set.

Some people have split it out of the box set. You can get it for around $23 plus shipping at Amazon.

Are these the same transfers from the original box set? Are they the same quality? I would hope that being cheaper and boxed in a double feature that the picture wouldn't be cheapened.

Anyone have the DH/MF set and is the picture just as good?


Thanks!

Just got it today. 2 disc set, not a flipper.

The Enforcer has commentary by Director James Fargo. 2 featrurettes The Business End:Viloence In The Cinema and Harry Callahan/Clint Eastwood Something Special in Films Dolby True HD

Sudden Impact has commentary by historian/Eastwood biographer Richard Schiickel and the featureette The Evolution of Clint Eastwood Dolby Digital

Haven't watched them yet but there are warnings on the back that the extras may be in SD.

With the exception of Dirty Harry and Magnum Force, the remainder of the films are on BD-25s. They all have TrueHD 5.1 audio and look pretty good, although I think the first two movies look better than the rest. In any event they are significantly improved over the DVDs.

They all have the grain intact and don't appear to use any DNR. So all of the "double feature" discs are just two BD-25 movies on a single BD-50. I don't see any reason to think that these versions are any different than what I have on the Dirty Harry Boxset version.

These movies are what catalog titles should look like on BD, so rest assured that you will enjoy them.

Ya..WB knows better. I just wish Universal would take notice. I like the double features that WB has been putting out. It would have been even better if it was a digi-book but I knew it wouldn't happen, same with Batman Returns.

This is not a flipper. There are 2 discs, 1 with each movie plus the extras I described above. Now maybe the earlier set with all the movies had flippers. This is not that release, this is the release coming out on Tues, shipped early from the WB store.

Only 1 says its True HD on the back as I noted above. The other does not, it says Dolby Digital 5.1

I don't know how much better WB knows with that massive Eastwood box set only available on DVD so far. I have the Dirty Harry Digibook. I think the first 2 were the best of the 5. But I will probably get the 2 I don't have, Dead Pool and Magnum Force, from the UK on my next order since for some reason they have all the individuals available and here they don't. Again WB, whyyyyyyyyyy?

If I had to guess, I'd say the put The Dead Pool in a Double Feature with The Gauntlet.

The Gauntlet isn't a Dirty Harry movie. The Dirty Harry movies are:

Dirty Harry
Magnum Force
The Enforcer
Sudden Impact
The Dead Pool


What you suggest would be like putting Dr. No and The Hunt For Red October together.

Yes I know that but it is an Eastwood movie & WB owns the rights. I don't see them releasing The Dead Pool by itself even though it's the last Dirty Harry movie.

EDIT: And these sets are Action Double Features not necessarily Dirty Harry Double Features so adding a non-Dirty Harry film to The Dead Pool is not so far-fetched.

They have Dirty Harry on the front with a 44 mag. BTW ALL Clint Eastwood movies for the past 35 years are WB films. Dead Pool is by itself in the UK. The 2 movie set is not. The Dirty Harry movies all have Dirty Harry with a .44 mag on the front cover. The Gauntlet is already on BD and has a much different cover.

Yes yes I know all of that. If they plan on releasing The Dead Pool by itself here, then why didn't they release the other Dirty Harry films separately as they did in the UK? Why have 2 Double Features and then 1 individual release? As you pointed out, both The Dead Pool and The Gauntlet have already had Blu-ray releases so making a Double Feature with both would cost WB nothing other than some new packaging. It's their way of getting some more money out of a stagnant catalog title (how many copies of The Gauntlet do you think are selling these days?).

I'm not saying that it's a sure thing that The Dead Pool will be released in a Double Feature, but it's not as far-fetched as your Dr. No/The Hunt for Red October comparison.

There are all kinds of BD in the UK that aren't here in the States as well as much lower prices. Who knows what WB is going to do. Here is another Clint Eastwood double feature that just came out. If anything they might do a Dirty Harry/ Dead Pool combo. That would make more sense since Dirty Harry is the one that sells the most, they have at least 3 different offerings of it on BD (alone, digibook and with Magnum Force) and it bookends the series, the first and the last.

I bought the boxed set a long time ago and never looked back--

I love that series (along with most of Eastwood's stuff) and having the
entire series together is the way to go... I think there's a re-release of
the boxed set without some gadgets (police badge, etc) that costs less
so it's even more of a no-brainer to buy them all.

There has been 2 BD sets, one is now around $90, the other around $50. The new set is cheaper. I have the Dirty Harry Digibook and the Combo that this thread is about. I have Magnum Force on DVR in HD and The Dead Pool is available to stream on NetFlix.I will get both probably the next time I do a UK order.

I just picked up both of the double-feature Dirty Harry Blu-rays at Best Buy today at "2 for $20" - So I got the first 4 out of the 5 Dirty Harry movies for only $5 each! Sure beats the $109.99 Best Buy is asking for the collector's box set right now, with all 5 movies in it! I'll just get Dead Pool later, whenever I can find it and buy it for under $10...
