Thanks Mike. I'll get this release and if there will be a major upgrade in the future I'll get that too.

Like almost every movie Peckinpah directed it's fascinating. I'm very curious about the Director's Cut.

I got four Imprint titles in transit from them, because it's a larger than normal order, dreading customs

Mine order had four titles in and was fine.

Nice Sturdy slipcase anyway like they used on the Hammer Tales of Terror boxset.

I've never seen the film before so going to straight in with the Directors Cut.

Having never seen the dc before. I thought the disclaimer at the start of the film from Sam and his editor saying this is the only version they put there name too. Very interesting they must have known the producers were going to recut it at that point when Sam was striking his own personal print of the directors cut.

Can't believe how much action at the end they cut out of the theatrical cut

Sam finally learned his lesson. Too bad other filmmakers didn't do this too.

Any idea how the director's cut running time differs from the theatrical?

Anyone out there who has a copy, have you got some caps of the DC?

Is the Theatrical Cut a port of the US Anchor Bay release?
(Every time I look at the screenshots of the review, I feel physically sick... The PQ, and the coloring, is really that awful).

What does the alternative unrestored presentation of the film in 1.66:1 aspect ratio, scanned from a 35mm German print look like?

Edit: All good. Found the answers on the movie thread. Posted the best post of information here (TC is the Anchor Bay port, but the German print looks pretty, pretty, pretty good).

Orbit DVD have the new Imprint release in stock for $54.99 right now. I ordered one along with Marooned.

Pricey, yes, but I'm not letting this one slip through my fingers...

---------------------------------------

I received it yesterday. I've only browsed through the discs thus far, and have yet to watch them 100%, but...

The Theatrical cut on the 1st disc looks like the same 1.78:1 DNR'ed version that the Anchor Bay Blu-ray used, and has the same troublesome color grading. It's definitely not any new scan or restoration.

The "1.66:1 Unrestored Alternative Feature Version" on the 1st disc seems to probably be the same cut, but it comes sourced from a 35mm German print. The colors look more like the old Anchor Bay DiviMax DVD transfer...at least by memory. It's definitely no pristine HD presentation of it, but no obvious DNR has not been applied to it.

The "Director's Cut" on the 2nd disc is the full 107 minute cut, and is sourced from Peckinpah's own 35mm directors cut negative. It has a different aspect ratio, closer to 1.56:1 (it states 1.60:1 though). It also isn't pristine, but probably about the best it's ever going to look without a full restoration...and there appears to be no obvious DNR on it either.

There are new bonus features regarding the scan/transfer and the differences between the different cuts...which I'm sure offer far more info.

Here are BDInfo scans + Bitrate charts for the 3 cuts on both discs:

Bitrate chart for the "Director's Cut" on Disc #2:



Here are some random screengrabs from the "Director's Cut" on Disc #2:













...and here are some random screengrabs from the "1.66:1 Unrestored Alternative Feature Version" on Disc #1:











It's not really worth taking any of the "Theatrical Cut" on Disc #1, as they are basically the same as the old Anchor Bay DNR'ed Blu-ray transfer.

My copy arrived on Saturday from Deep Discount. Rather impressed by their shipping speed.

It's looking like this edition might be exclusive to Imprint judging by some of the comments I've read (mostly on the OW dedicated thread in the North America section), which is why I bit the bullet and purchased it. Can't say I'm a big fan of the film but I am a fan of film versions that have been rescued from obscurity and reappraised so I think the investment here is worth it. It's also a beautifully designed set that probably won't be topped by another label.

I got mine yesterday from DD. The box is pretty sweet. I'm talking about Vinegar Syndrome-quality cardboard here. Very sturdy! The top of the box comes off, to reveal the 2 HD keep cases of each version of the film. Very impressed with the package!

The comparison documentary on the difference's between the two cuts runs just over an hour.

It plays both cuts side by side without talking heads which show how much difference there is between the two cuts.

I think it's a similar situation with Conan the Barbarian and it's two endings where they just cut to the chase and remove the build up.

The DNR'd theatrical cut (which was sourced from a US IP) should still have the Fox logo as the AB BD did. I'm curious about what opened the 1.66 alt theatrical cut, as that was said to be a German dubbed 35mm print (with English titles?) and Fox only had US distribution rights.

The TC definitely has the fox logo. I'll have to check the German print again as i dont remember it does have English audio though.
