Canada Vengeance Trilogy, from Alliance.

I have been keeping a close-eye on Park Chan Wook's Vengeance Trilogy Set for the longest time. I would have pulled the trigger if not for Palisades Tartan's enormous mess-up and their current unethical handling of the situation, or lack thereof.

In the set, the Oldboy disc is missing 7.1 TrueHD audio. In place is a lossy 5.1 track, and this is despite 7.1 listed as spec on the back cover. I was browsing through Amazon.ca today and stumbled upon the following...

http://www.amazon.ca/Vengeance-Trilo...1308142&sr=1-3

Listed as October 5, 2010 release. Scroll down and it has Alliance Films listed as the distributor. I don't know. I feel scared and excited at the same time. Here's hoping the Oldboy audio problem is fixed, and that everything else is on par with Palisades Tartan.

For those who have already purchased the P-Tartan set from Amazon.ca, how's the Oldboy audio? Can someone verify whether 7.1 has been put back or is the problem still unfixed? Thanks.

My guess is that it will be a direct port of the US set...

Default it's finally here...

Anyone got this? It's now available from amazon.ca and I would love to find out if the audio for Oldboy has been corrected. Also, whether the whole set is on par with the U.S. release. Thanks in advance.

Someone posted an update in the main thread. I hate to deliver bad news but apparently it's limited to region 1, which is essentially Alliance talk for region A.

Oldboy is only a single disc in the alliance package, but is the same Disc one from the original 2-disc Tartan release. It does have the 7.1 dtsma track

Well, not exactly the same disc one. It retains the 7.1 sound but it also has all of the extra features which were previously on a separate disc.

There's good info in this thread. Seems to be an exact port of the U.S. set with identical A/V, except it includes the DTS MA track for Oldboy absent on the U.S. set.

Do these have the Alliance logo play upon disc startup or does it still play the Palisades Tartan one? Just curious how much of an port these are.

The Palisades Tartan logo is definitely present (I must check though if it is on each release).

I'm certain it would have the Alliance logo(s) as well. For the past couple years they have not just been taking the US disc & placing different packaging on a release (they did this for a long time, & never even bothered to change packaging during the HD DVD days).

They tend to create a new disc entirely, with Alliance preview trailers etc, so they likely gather all data from another source & meld it with their own stuff (7.1 track for Oldboy in this case).

Wasn't the US release supposed to be corrected to include the lossless mix for Oldboy? What happened with that?

Really enjoyed this blu-ray set of the vengeance trilogy. While the OOP Palisades Tartan set is prettier as a blu-ray set, this one is more practical especially as it has the corrected lossless audio for Oldboy.

I think it's probably the best version of these movies on blu-ray.
