  • 2021 Arrow [Django 4K + Texas Adios Blu-ray] R0 4K Blu-ray/(RB) Blu-ray Combo at US Amazon #ad released on 1st June 2021

Promotional Material

In this definitive spaghetti western, Franco Nero ( Keoma , The Fifth Cord ) gives a career-defining performance as Django, a mysterious loner who arrives at a mud-drenched ghost town on the Mexico-US border, ominously dragging a coffin behind him. After saving imperilled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries

With Django , director Sergio Corbucci ( The Great Silence ) upped the ante for sadism and sensationalism in westerns, depicting machine-gun massacres, mud-fighting prostitutes and savage mutilations. A huge hit with international audiences, Django s brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels.

The film is presented here in its 4K UHD Blu-ray debut, with a wealth of extras. Also included is the bonus feature Texas, Adios on Blu-ray, which also stars Franco Nero, and was released as a sequel to Django in some countries.

As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship's Captain ( Kirk Douglas ), a Defense Department expert ( Martin Sheen ), a maverick Air Wing Commander ( James Farentino ) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration ( Charles Durning ) must choose between the unthinkable.

    Paranoia Agent is a 2004 Japan TV animation horror
    Starring Shôzô Îzuka,Toshihiko, Seki,Michael, McConnohie Melon Farmers link BBFC link 2020 IMDb

    Cut by the BBFC for 18 rated DVD in 2006. The distributor reported that the video was passed uncut by the BBFC for 2021 Blu-ray. However this has not yet appeared in the BBFC database. Uncut and TV-MA rated in the US.

    Previous BBFC cuts from 2006

    See article from animenewsnetwork.com

    The BBFC requested the compulsory cut to the eighth part of Paranoia Agent, called Happy Family Planning. This a mostly self-contained story, a macabre black comedy. The story involves three people who meet online, intending to kill themselves together. Two of the trio are adult men, but they're shocked to realise the third person is a preteen girl, who seems to regard suicide as a game.

    In one scene, the three characters try to hang themselves in the mountain. In the unedited episode, the girl is shown bouncing happily up and down with the rope around her neck, chanting Swing! Swing! (finally, she breaks the tree branch, sending them all tumbling). However, this scene, lasting 80 seconds, was cut entirely from the UK DVD of the episode, following the ruling by the BBFC.

    Responding to inquiries about the cut in the past, the BBFC has made its reasoning clear. Although the relevant DVD was rated 18, the BBFC still judged that the scene of a child enjoying being hanged was irresponsible and harmful, and that underage children could be influenced by the scene.

    Summary Notes

    Seemingly unconnected citizens of Tokyo are targeted for bludgeoning by a boy with a golden baseball bat. As detectives try to link the victims, they discover that following the assaults, the victims' lives have improved in some way.

But all goes wrong when wildcard Irish gypsy boxer One Punch Mickey O'Neil (Brad Pitt) starts playing by his own rules, and the duo find themselves heading for a whole lot of trouble. Meanwhile, Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) and his stolen 86-carat diamond have gone missing in London. Head honcho Avi (Dennis Farina) hires local legend Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) to find them, launching everyone into a spiral of double-crossing vendettas and events, most of them illegal.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a 1982 USA comedy drama by Amy Heckerling
    Starring Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Judge Reinhold Melon Farmers link BBFC link 2020 IMDb

    Cut in the US for an MPAA R rating. The film was restored and uncut for 2021 home video release.

    The 2021 restoration restored the cut male nudity that was actually achieved by re-framing the scene. See article from dvdcompare.net :

    During post-production, director Amy Heckerling was forced to reframe the shot of Robert Romanus removing his underwear during the poolhouse scene approximately 58 minutes into the film to remove his nudity in order to avoid an X-rating. The Criterion release has restored her preferred framing for the first time.

    The wild world of adolescence has rarely been captured with as sharp an observational eye as in this refreshingly smart, frank spin on the teen comedy by director Amy Heckerling and screenwriter Cameron Crowe--for each of whom it kicked off a hugely successful film career. Based on Crowe's experiences going undercover as a student at a Southern California high school, Fast Times at Ridgemont High blends hormone-fueled hilarity with an almost sociological examination of the 1980s teenage experience: the shopping-mall hangouts, fast-food jobs, buzzkill teachers, awkward dates, and first experiences of love and sex. This pop-culture touchstone launched to stardom practically an entire cast of unknowns--including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, Forest Whitaker, Anthony Edwards, Eric Stoltz, and Sean Penn as stoner icon Jeff Spicoli--and broke new ground in its raw yet sensitive depiction of the realities of coming of age.

    DIRECTOR-APPROVED TWO-DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by director Amy Heckerling - Audio commentary from 1999 featuring Heckerling and screenwriter Cameron Crowe - Television version of the film from the eighties, featuring deleted and alternate scenes - New conversation with Heckerling and Crowe, moderated by filmmaker Olivia Wilde - Reliving Our "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," a 1999 documentary featuring interviews with cast and crew - Audio discussion from 1982 with Heckerling at the American Film Institute - English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing - PLUS: An essay by film critic Dana Stevens and, for the Blu-ray edition, a new introduction by Crowe

    I WANT YOU TO WATCH THE MOVIE SCREEN. THERE S SOMETHING I WANT TO SHOW YOU.

    Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 06 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.

    Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and television favorite Noah Wyle and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.

    For three men the Civil War wasn t hell it was practice! By far the most ambitious, unflinchingly graphic and stylistically influential western ever made, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a classic actioner shot through with a volatile mix of myth and realism. Screen legend Clint Eastwood (A Fistful of Dollars) returns as The Man with No Name, this time teaming with two gunslingers to pursue a cache of $200,000 and letting no one, not even warring factions in a civil war, stand in their way. From sun-drenched panoramas to bold hard close-ups, exceptional camerawork captures the beauty and cruelty of the barren landscape and the hardened characters who stride unwaveringly through it. Hailed as the best directed movie of all time by Quentin Tarantino, this epic masterpiece was directed by the great Sergio Leone (Once Upon a Time in the West) and co-stars Lee Van Cleef (For a Few Dollars More) as Angel Eyes and Eli Wallach (The Magnificent Seven) in the role of Tuco. Music by legendary composer Ennio Morricone (Death Rides a Horse).

    The kids of Third Year Class-B Shiroiwa Junior High School are back, in a brand new 4K restoration of the classic cult shocker adapted from the controversial novel by Koushun Takami.

    Presenting an alternate dystopian vision of turn-of-the-millennium Japan, Battle Royale follows the 42 junior high school students selected to take part in the government's annual Battle Royale programme, established as an extreme method of addressing concerns about juvenile delinquency. Dispatched to a remote island, they are each given individual weapons (ranging from Uzis and machetes to pan lids and binoculars), food and water, and the order to go out and kill one other. Every player is fitted with an explosive collar around their neck, imposing a strict three-day time limit on the deadly games in which there can only be one survivor. Overseeing the carnage is 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano ( Sonatine , Hana-bi , Zatoichi ) as the teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges.

    Playing like a turbo-charged hybrid of Lord of the Flies and The Most Dangerous Game , the final completed work by veteran yakuza film director Kinji Fukasaku ( Battles without Honor and Humanity , Graveyard of Honor ) helped launch a new wave of appreciation for Asian cinema in the 21st century. Also included in the set is the incendiary sequel Battle Royale II , the directing debut of Kenta Fukasaku (after his father passed away during production), in which a new class of delinquents are recruited by the government to hunt down the survivor of the deadly games of the first film.

    Hammer Volume Six: Night Shadows revives four consummate Hammer classics from the early sixties, exemplifying some of Hammer Films' best work in the horror and thriller genres. Edgar Allan Poe looms large in The Shadow of the Cat, a macabre 'old dark house' tale of feline revenge, starring André Morell (Cash on Demand) and Barbara Shelley (The Camp on Blood Island); Peter Cushing (The Gorgon, Corruption) and Oliver Reed (The Scarlet Blade) star in Captain Clegg, which sees Hammer fuse horror and adventure in an eighteenth-century-set tale of smugglers and marsh phantoms; Herbert Lom (Mysterious Island) stars as The Phantom of the Opera in Hammer's acclaimed production of Gaston Leroux's Gothic classic, whilst Freddie Francis (Torture Garden) directs Nightmare, a spooky psychological thriller in the Les Diaboliques vein, which benefits from full-blooded central performances by Moira Redmond (Jigsaw) and Jennie Linden (A Severed Head).

    This collection contains a wealth of new and archival extra features, including documentaries and appreciations, interviews with actors and crew members, audio commentaries, and extensive booklets. Strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.

    The Shadow of the Cat (John Gilling, 1961). A house cat sees her mistress murdered by two servants under orders from her husband , and becomes ferociously bent on revenge.

    Captain Clegg (Peter Graham Scott, 1962). When a captain arrives on an English coastal town to investigate reports of smuggling, he ends up with much more to deal with, including marsh phantoms and a suspicious vicar.

    The Phantom of the Opera (Terence Fisher, 1962). Composer Lord Ambrose D'Arcy (Michael Gough) and his backer, Harry Hunter (Edward De Souza), struggle to find a replacement for the female lead in their new opera after she quits in the wake of a gruesome murder. When a new prospect, the nubile Christine Charles (Heather Sears), disappears, Harry cautiously investigates. Meanwhile, a mysterious masked man (Herbert Lom) who is eerily familiar with the opera holds Christine captive and offers to groom her to play the part.

    Nightmare (Freddie Francis, 1964). Janet is a young student at a private school. Her nights are troubled by horrible dreams in which she sees her mother, who is in fact locked in a psychiatric hospital, haunting her. Expelled because of her persistent nightmares, Janet is sent home where the nightmares continue.

    Cult Films is proud to bring you this gore-soaked terror classic in a stunning new 2K restoration, with colour regrading carried out under instruction from the maestro himself and in reference to his own, preferred, original cinema print.

    Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA) returns to Cult Films with this breath-taking new restoration of his visionary horror masterpiece OPERA. Splattered with stylistic bloodshed and soaring cinematography, OPERA shows Italy's master of horror at the very height of his game.

    When young understudy Betty takes the lead role in a new operatic production of Verdi's Macbeth, she soon attracts the attention of a knife-wielding psycho who forces her to watch - with eyes pinned open - as he brutally despatches her friends and colleagues with sadistic delight. Can Betty free herself from this unending nightmare or does a more terrifying fate await? OPERA is a ravishing return to the giallo style Argento made his name with, awash with black-gloved killers, lavish bloodletting and the director's expressionistic Grand Guignol excess.

    Extras :

  • 'Aria of Fear' -- a brand new candid interview with director Dario Argento, revisiting his work from a fresh viewpoint
  • 'Opera Backstage' -- a unique behind the scenes documentary about Dario Argento directing Opera
  • Restoration featurette -- from raw scan to the regarded, restored, and reframed final frame

    Thanks to Anthony:

    I recently received the new The Lucky Stars Eureka! Entertainment 2021 Blu-Ray release and can confirm that My Lucky Stars is indeed uncut; the joke about rape and the scene in which Sammo Hung's character uses wire to unlock a car door is fully intact in that release. Eureka! had also confirmed this to me by email.

    UK: The Hong Kong Version of My Lucky Stars was passed 15 uncut with a BBFC trigger warning for references to sexual violence, domestic abuse:

    When two-fisted gunslinger Doc Holliday (Stacy Keach, The Long Riders) rides into Tombstone, he's ready and willing to help District Marshal Wyatt Earp (Harris Yulin, Narrow Margin) clean up the unruly town, just as they did in Dodge. But to Doc's surprise, Earp has changed from a steely-eyed believer in law-and-order to a greedy opportunist who'll do anything to be elected Tombstone's sheriff. To ensure his victory, the unscrupulous Earp enlists Doc's help in double-crossing the most vicious band of outlaws in the territory, the notorious Clanton Gang. It's a dangerous scheme that leads to the infamous showdown at the O.K. Corral, where a bloody slaughter transforms villains into heroes... and heroes into American legends. Written by legendary columnist Pete Hamill (Badge 373), directed by the great Frank Perry (The Swimmer) and co-starring screen legend Faye Dunaway (The Thomas Crown Affair) as Katie Elder.

    Shopping: Age of Consent...

    1969 Australia comedy romance by Michael Powell, once cut for a BBFC 'A' rating, just released on UK Blu-ray

    Age of Consent is a 1969 Australia comedy romance by Michael Powell.
    Starring James Mason, Helen Mirren and Jack MacGowran. Melon Farmers link BBFC link 2020 IMDb

    The film was originally passed X uncut by the BBFC but the distributors decided to cut the film for an 'A" rating. The same cut version was released on 15 rated VHS in 1986 and 1995. The uncut version was rated 12 for 2008 DVD. The Director's Cut is MPAA R rated
    UK: Passed 15 uncut for:

    Promotional Material

    Based on Norman Lindsay's controversial autobiographical 1935 novel, Age of Consent is the story of an artist (James Mason), grown tired of producing art for wealthy Americans, who moves to the wilds of Australia's Great Barrier Reef where he meets Cora (Helen Mirren), a teenage girl who inspires him and becomes his muse -- as well as the object of his desire.

    The penultimate film from the great Michael Powell (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes, Peeping Tom), Age of Consent explores the obsessive nature of an artist approaching the twilight of his career. Misjudged and mis-handled on its initial release (when the distributor removed key scenes and re-scored the film), Age of Consent is now regarded as one of Powell's key works.

    Crimewave is a 1985 USA crime comedy horror by Sam Raimi.
    Starring Louise Lasser and Brion James and Paul L Smith. Melon Farmers link IMDb

    BBFC category cuts were required for a PG rated cinema release in 1985 as well as home video releases. Uncut and MPAA PG-13 rated in the US. There is also a shortened European Version.

    UK: BBFC details not yet published for:

    • 2021 Powerhouse Films Amazon Prime VoD [UK only] at UK Amazon #ad

    Promotional Material

    After the colossal success of The Evil Dead, director Sam Raimi teamed up with the Coen brothers (fresh from Blood Simple) to make his next film, Crimewave, an unusual mixture of screwball comedy, film noir and B-movie homage.

    Raimi's film tells the bizarre story of a security-system installer, Vic (Reed Birney), who finds himself in the electric chair when he falls in love with Nancy (Sheree J Wilson), a femme fatale on the run from two bumbling exterminators 'of all sizes' (Paul L Smith, Popeye, and Brion James, Blade Runner).

    A notoriously troubled production which flopped upon its original release, Crimewave can now be enjoyed as a riotously entertaining showcase for Raimi and the Coens, which also benefits from a highly amusing performance from cult-horror star Bruce Campbell.
