Really looking forward to Adventures of Barry McKenzie, & I hope Barry McKenzie Holds His Own... follows (& I'll even buy Les Patterson Saves The World).

Some new details, and cover art, for the upcoming Sunday Too Far Away release!



Quote:
SYNOPSIS
Jack Thompson is Foley, the best shearer on every station for miles around. Sunday Too Far Away is Foley's story of sweat-soaked days and rum-soaked nights, of bloody two-fisted punch ups... of scab labour brought in during the shearers strike of '56 and of the poor old bastard who runs the place: the cocky (farmer) who is terrified that one slip of the shears will render his prize ram good for nothing but mint sauce.

A classic of Australian cinema and the film that launched the South Australian Film Corporation, Sunday Too Far Away now appears as part of the Sunburnt Screens sub label.

EXTRA FEATURES
• The Making of Sunday - archival TV documentary from 1975
• Jack Thompson AM in conversation with David Wenham, post-screening of Sunday Too Far Away, recorded at GOMA, 2019*
• Original World Premiere programme from 1975
• Stills Gallery
• Theatrical Trailer

And some details on Dingo. This one is available now.



Quote:
SYNOPSIS
Late jazz great Miles Davis made his only acting appearance in this film about a jazz trumpeter who dares to realize his musical dreams in the Australian outback. Dingo stars Colin Friels as John "Dingo" Anderson, a part-time musician and dingo trapper living in the bush who, after seeing his hero, legendary trumpeter Billy Cross (Miles Davis) on tour, longs to travel to Paris and play with the finest American jazz musicians. Frustrated by playing half-rate music in dusty dancehalls, John's dream is compromised by his love for his new family. Dingo must now decide whether he to make the supreme sacrifice for his music. Featuring a stunning, award-winning Miles Davis soundtrack (one of Davis' last recordings before his death), Dingo is directors Rolf de Heer's (Bad Boy Bubby, The Tracker) cinematic ode to the power of music.

EXTRA FEATURES
• Interview featurettes with: Director Rolf de Heer and lead actress Helen Buday
• Rushes Reel: The Desert Runway with audio commentary by Rolf de Heer
• Theatrical Trailers: Dingo • The Tracker • Bad Boy Bubby

Nice to see this all merged into one thread. Maybe they'll do it with the Ozploitation and Beyond Genres lines as well.

Hopefully they’ve seen what Viavision has done with Imprint and know that they market is there for a premium local label

As predicted.... A re-release of a film they’ve done on bluray and DVD, and looks like the same special features and no new scan (at least from what they’ve mentioned here)

One reissue out of six titles (so far) is perfectly fine by me... particularly considering it’s a title that was issued nearly ten years ago and has been long out of print.

Hi folks

Just a heads up that We of the Never Never is an all new restoration from a 4K scan we worked on late last year.

Cheers

Looking back at some of the posts on this forum, I too share the frustration of not having Palace titles on blu-ray. Personally, I would like to see Umbrella tackle another one of Rolf de Heer’s works, Alexandra’s Project. But considering that Umbrella put out a disc of Head On a few years back, how did they get the rights from Palace?

South Africa, 1901. The British war against the Boers has deteriorated into bitter guerilla warfare. A unit of the Bushveldt Carbineers, made up mainly of Australians, is ordered by the British High Command to fight the Boer on its terms and take no prisoners, an order which will prove fatal to a man they call "The Breaker" - Lieutenant Harry Morant. This classic Australian motion picture of injustice and the horror of war has swept the world to become one of the most acclaimed Australian movies ever made.

Director Bruce Beresford (Paradise Road, Mao's Last Dancer) garnered international acclaim for this riveting drama set during a dark period in Australia's colonial history and featuring passionate performances by Edward Woodward (Hot Fuzz), Bryan Brown (Two Hands) and Jack Thompson (The Great Gatsby) rugged cinematography by Donald McAlpine (My Brilliant Career, Patriot Games) and an Oscar®-nominated script based on true events.


Extras:
ALL NEW Audio Commentary with Director Bruce Beresford, Actor Bryan Brown and Producer Matt Carroll
ALL NEW Breaker Morant: The Retrial - Feature-length documentary
Edward Woodward audio interview with John Cook
The Breaker - Documentary
The Myth Exposed - Director’s Postscript

That Blu Ray of Head On is the worst Blu Ray I have ever seen. So bright and the colours looked unnatural.

I threw my copy away and stuck with the DVD. I would love a decent Blu Ray release of Head On. I would like to see Rolf de Heer's Dance Me To My Song get a Blu Ray (I think it was only ever released via a Rolf de Heer box set). Not to mention Ray Lawrence's three films: Bliss, Lantana & Jindabyne.

Lantana is one of my favourite Aussie films of all time — there’s a great HD version of it on one of the streaming services (can’t remember which one I saw it on now) so it’s ripe for a BD release! Would love Bliss and Jindabyne too!

Is the version streaming on Netflix at the moment any better or is it the same?

Why Lantana isn’t out yet is baffling. I want to retire the old Special Edition DVD, hopefully Umbrella can get hold of it and include all the extras the came with it

Huh. I’ve recently been buying up some more of the Palace titles (Chopper included), and it is puzzling that such a well known Australian film has been relatively difficult to find, except only second hand. Having seen what the DVD looks like, it’s a film that does deserve a full on restoration.
