I am waiting for the 2nd release of Battle Royale. Didn't anyone else think the first BD release didn't fit lookwise in the collection of other Arrow releases? Well that's why I'm waiting and waiting and waiting..

I also have Arrow's Dawn of the Dead on BD. Although I think it is the best version available anywhere I think the definitive cover art is missing. I like my OLD AB DVD's cover art more. One good reason for not to sell the DVD..

You probably know they are a distributor and not a studio..

I own Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead but will soon get all of Arrow's releases. Not sure about getting Caliglia or Battle Royale.
Arrow more Argento, Mario Bava, Fulci. Need some Lamberto Bava (Demons, Demons 2) and Michele Soavi (Cemetery Man).

Amazon.co.uk refused to ship them? Never heard of that.

Try HMV:

Haha, I do exactly the same. It's a task that sometimes takes perfect precision.

The BR re-release is due at end of the month I see:

http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProduct...;-1&sku=812705
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004CSKCS6

Always liked the idea of BR but really didn't like the film.

Great set for fans though.

That was cool. Are most of these films worth blind buying?

Of the blus: Dawn, Day, Inferno, Deep Red and Battle Royale are essential movies no question. Bay of Blood may be worth a look. I'd personally avoid Caligula and City as they are stinkers (the films themselves not the bonus material, transfers and packaging which Arrow have presented very well)

As much as I appreciate Arrow putting so much effort into these releases, I would like if they were available as just a standard amaray case as well.

We pay a premium for this packaging which is essentially just a few extra pieces of paper and card. Nice stuff for collectors, but you can't pick up any of these blu's for less than 15 quid usually.

Generally speaking, these are obscure-ish 70's & 80's horror movies and would/should be selling for 6-8 quid if sold as a standard amaray.

After all, it's the content on the disc that I'm interested in....

Never went over 10 for mine. They do all come in Amaray style as you know anyway.

The last thing we want is to be complaining abot a distributor going to great lengths to carefully produce wonderful releases like these which everyone appreciates. I don't see many threads on other distributors applauding their releases except maybe Criterion and certainly none in the UK.

We have to support these releases or we'll end up with shite ASDA pile 'em high only.

You either buy into the label or look elsewhere and get MUCH less.

If you want run of the mill, standard amaray 1 disc sets with the film and a trailer for 8 then you really have to go elsewhere.
There are so called collectors editions by other labels that are a lot more expensive than Arrows standard sets, but have a lot less content.

I didn't say I wanted a blu-ray with none of the extra features.... There's plenty of sub 10 blu's packed with extra features.

My point was, I think we're paying 5+ extra for the privilege of having a cardboard slipcase and few other extra pieces of glossy paper. A lot of people like this stuff, I personally don't care for it, especially these Arrow covers that fill a third of the cover with a white surround. I also don't really want to see a row of similar white spines on my shelves either. I probably will end up buying them at some point though as the films they release are right up my street

Like I said, I do appreciate the effort Arrow put in to the actual content on these discs. Ok, 6 is probably being a bit unrealistic, but it would be good if these were available in the 8-10 price range, they are old obscure horror films after all.

Thats the thing mate and that's what make them more expensive. They are obscure titles and if you have a look on Amazon you will find that alot of these types of film's (older/obscure and World Cinema) are more expensive than everyday titles. To me the prices are well worth it.

I have no idea whether 15 pounds is expensive over there, but it works out to be around $22ish AUS dollars, which isn't very much at all. Keeping in mind that you can't these titles over here and that most catalogue titles get released for around $15-$20 here makes these friggin good value.

You get what you pay for and IMO these Arrow releases shit all over standard Blu ray releases.

I love movies, but when I can get awesome editions like these I love it. To me its not only just about the film, but the packaging, goodies etc too. It all makes for a complete experience for me.
