SUMMER TIME MACHINE BLUES · サマータイムマシン・ブルース

Katsuyuki Motohiro · 2005 · Japan · 108 mins

Time. Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking went on about it forever. But the big questions of time travel remain: who stole Niimi’s shampoo, how might spilling coke on the remote control spell the end of the universe, and perhaps most importantly, how can nerdy guys get to meet girls?

It’s an endlessly hot Japanese summer and the members of the sci-fi club are hanging around waiting out the school vacation. Slowly, small things start not making sense, until a time machine and a dork from the future arrive in their clubhouse, and all of a sudden, the time-space continuum is under threat. Of course, the nature of the threat is never exactly clear, but it will involve a lot of frantic comic complications to put things right.

Director Katsuyuki Motohiro (Bayside Shakedown), is at the top of his game here, constructing a wildly playful and unfailingly inventive film that enjoys cult status among lovers of Japanese youth comedy.

EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL FEATURES:
• Limited first-pressing collector's booklet featuring a new essay by film writer Hayley Scanlon
• Original audio commentary by director Katsuyuki Motohiro & writer Makoto Ueda with newly translated English subtitles
• New interview with writer Makoto Ueda

Archival Extras:
• Theatrical trailers x2

Technical Specifications:
• 1.78:1
• 1080p colour
• Japanese DTS-HD MA 5.1 · LPCM 2.0
• English subtitles
• Region B
• BD-50

Packaged in a Scanavo full sleeved 14mm clear case with a reversible, numbered sleeve that is clean of classification markings and barcode on the alternative side.

Released June/July [TBC] and available to pre-order soon from the Chameleon Films web store: www.chameleonfilms.com.au

I hope this label does as well as Imprint... I see myself being a completionist in this line.

I wish this label the best, but why not debut with some heavy hitters? These 2 titles aren't going to set the world on fire. I'd like to see them do well, but this seems like a mediocre start.

Maybe the next batch will be must-haves.

Yes. I'd also be down for The Killer and Bullet In The Head. Black Mask would also be great, there's no decent release of that in region B (the German one only has lossy Cantonese stereo audio and a bunch of dubs).

I say this every time it comes up, but the Golden Princess catalogue is stuck in perpetual rights hell. This includes all the main John Woos.

Practically everything on these two lists are unavailable outside of Asia:

Very happy with more Johnnie To getting local releases. Exiled and Breaking News are both fantastic films.

Title Announcement · Spine - 03
EXILED · 放‧逐
Johnnie To · 2006 · Hong Kong · 109 mins
Wo (Nick Cheung) unwisely returns to Macau where Boss Fay (Simon Yam) has put a price on his head. His childhood buddy Blaze (Anthony Wong) is given the contract, while another lifelong friend, Tai (Francis Ng) is sworn to defend him. The scene is set for the kind of simmering confrontations that fans of Johnnie To prize so much. As characters loom out of the darkness, the tension is so thick you could pick it up with a pair of chopsticks.
Exiled is undoubtedly the high point of To’s work in the gangster genre. It seizes on elements central to the Hong Kong action film, such as the conflict between loyalty and self-preservation, and the way that male bonding is certainly stronger than death, and maybe even stronger than automatic weapons. It succeeds brilliantly in making these genre elements fresh through Johnnie To’s enormous talent and passion for filmmaking. The film is full of memorable set-pieces where taut confrontation is savoured in the moments before it explodes, and where inventive wide-screen compositions and crisply edited action provide a feast for any cinephile.
EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL FEATURES:
• Limited first-pressing collector's booklet featuring new essays by film historian Stephen Teo and Dylan Cheung
• New audio commentary by Hong Kong cinema expert Frank Djeng
• "The Weight of Honour" - a new video essay on Exiled
• Newly translated and improved optional English subtitles
Archival Extras:
• The Making of Exiled
• Behind the scenes
• Photo gallery
• HK trailers x2
• US trailer
Technical Specifications:
• 2.35:1
• 1080p colour
• Cantonese DTS-HD MA 5.1 · LPCM 2.0
• English subtitles
• Region B
• BD-50
Packaged in a Scanavo full sleeved 14mm clear case with a reversible, numbered sleeve that is clean of classification markings and barcode on the alternative side.
Released June/July [TBC] and available to pre-order soon from the Chameleon Films web store: https://shop.chameleonfilms.com.au/password

Dang, this label is 3-0 in titles I will absolutely be into purchasing.

My old disc for Exiled perished from bronzing and I just never bothered repurchasing.

I wish they would specify if they are using a new master or an older one.

It sounds like the Election films may also be getting a release.

Hmm. Even if these says Region B, I do wonder if they will end up playing on Region A. I'd buy the Election films especially with the non rating logo covers.

I just discovered the label via CityonFire. This is very cool and it looks like they will be releasing some titles I am interested in. Not having to import releases from the UK is a good thing despite the excellent output of 88 Films and Eureka.

We've noticed you have a few questions! Rather than respond individually, hopefully the following will be useful.

* Will your Blu-ray releases be region coded?

We're usually restricted under our licensing agreements to code discs for Region B only. It will be clear in the product description when we're able to make specific releases Region Free. Region B discs will play in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. If you live outside one of these regions and wish to purchase our discs, we recommend obtaining a region-free Blu-ray player. (It's what we've done to watch all those lovely Criterions.)

* Will you ship internationally?

Yes, we will ship everywhere that our logistics provider and its carriers can reach. Shipping charges will vary. Australia is unfortunately an expensive place to ship from, but shipping rates will be less than the actual amount we're charged because we want you to be able to own and see our discs!

* Are you utilising new masters?

The announced films have not been remastered in 4K or recently restored. We are encoding from the best available existing 2K masters supplied by the rightsholders. All supplied elements will be carefully inspected for artefacts and print damage. Any issues that are discovered will be removed or fixed with professional Diamant-Film Restoration software. The feature films will be encoded at the highest possible bitrate, and all the content will be mastered for replication onto dual layer Blu-ray discs.

* Can you please release [insert title here] on Blu-ray in the future?

We'll pin a new post so you can submit the titles you would like to see released in a glorious premium Blu-ray edition. Some of the requests that have already been mentioned are high on our list.

* I have a different question!

Fire away in the comments. We'll do our best to respond stoically.
