Default Black Rain

A twenty year old thriller from Paramount that truely shines. Picture wise near perfect and our friend Peter Bracke gives it a 4.5 stars. This is a must buy flick that will keep the wife happy. Big Michael Douglas fan. Anyways just goes to show that if a little attention is spent on the movie prior to the transfer to disc ,then all the older ones should be winners.

I'm thinking that I will be able to pick this one up for around $20, so I think I will make a purchase. I've never seen it, but have heard good things about it.
Blu-ray Disc Collection- I don't think I can count that high...

Posted on DVDtown.com this is the link"

http://www.dvdtown.com/reviews/blackrain/4576/2

what i like the most of it and its true just face it HD-DVD

Black Rain" is presented in 2.35:1 widescreen with MPEG-2/1080p mastering. Comparing the "Black Rain" Blu-ray release to the HD-DVD release yields identical results. The MPEG-2 conversion stands up to the VC-1 compression of the competitive format

I wonder when Ridley Scott will release his original cut of the film of 2 hours and 40 minutes.

That was just a rough cut.
I'd purchase this title on Blu-ray and put my HD DVD in storage IF the following happened:
BD-50
AVC/VC-1 video encode with zero DNR/EE
DTS-HD Master Audio
Same features as before but with the Japanese exclusive extras ported over and given English subs for them.

All the above AND a trailer for 1492: Conquest of Paradise finally coming onto Blu-ray with BOTH cuts of the film via seamless branching and overly extensive extras, being the second disc being filled to the gills as a BD50. One can only wish, right?
My DVD Collection (Keeping it separate.)
Importer supporter. & Multi-Region Capable!
The Other Stuff +132 BD's
Film grain and original cinematic audio advocate. Anti-DNR/EE. To hell with DVD, UV & Digital Copy combos. Gimme Blu-ray disc ONLY!

This movie is awesome but sadly apparently OOP from what I've read, they'll probably re-release it sometime in the future luckily I got my copy a few months ago and devoured all of its Ridley-Scott-Japanese goodness

Man, I hated this movie when I saw it on HD-DVD earlier this year. Really surprised that this is a Ridley Scott film. I've generally liked his movies.

It arrived this morning of 8/23! It has the same features as the U.S. release, so I'll leave it in the shrink wrap for now.

6 days to arrive from Germany to U.S., not bad at all.

Got my DE Steelbook today.

As long as the PQ is the same as the HD DVD (better would be a bonus but doubtfull since it's really good anyway) then i'll be happy.

Great film.

That's funny. I think whenever I search for Black Rain stuff I always get a few Ozzy Osbourne' posters.

Japan He started young and rose quickly...

So does any Black Rain fan on here have this? The Sato Action Figure...

Came across the making of Black Rain on a Japanese site...

And if you can't get that Hans Zimmer music out of your head, listen to this...

Want to see Sato in an old TV show named Shogun?
