3.0 von 5 Sternen A stellar English-friendly blu-ray presentation that sadly only features a monaural soundtrack., 6. April 2016
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sieben Diebe [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It's a shame that this HD release doesn't include the original 4-track stereo soundtrack found on the American DVD, because the upgrade in picture quality is superb. Subtitles on this release are removable, and this monochrome CinemaScopE presentation is still worth the price of admission.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Reasonable region-B locked blu-ray with English audio (with removeable subtitles)., 6. April 2016
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die weisse Feder [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Less-than-stellar source materials offers up a somewhat faded HD presentation, but it's still a nicely film-like blu-ray. There is both a 2.0 and 4.0 DTS-HD-Master mix in English, but sadly, as with THE LAST WAGON blu-ray, the 4.0 stereo mix lacks a discrete center channel (balancing the dialogue only in the left and right front channels). The 2.0 English mix is monaural, so doesn't offer a stereophonic surround option for the English track. The 4.0 stereo is acceptable if you sit in the sweet spot directly between the front stereo speakers, but it's a shame the 2.0 mix doesn't offer a stereo pro-logic alternative, like with THE LAST WAGON blu-ray, which, by the way, is a superb blu-ray release to pair with this one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's a Delmer Daves Western, so it's a good one that's made even better on blu-ray., 6. April 2016
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Der letzte Wagen [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Here's a superb HD transfer of THE LAST WAGON, befitting this magnificent CinemaScopE Western. It's region-B locked but otherwise English-friendly. It features both a 2.0 and 4.0 stereo English track with optional subtitle options. The 2.0 surround channel gives the best presentation of the original 4-track sound. Strangely, the 4.0 mix lacks a discrete center channel (the panning dialogue is balanced only to the left and right front channels). Both options do justice to Lionel Newman's excellent music score, but only the 2.0 DTS-HD-Master mix gives an accurate English theatrical presentation, in spite of the optional 4.0 mix.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Blue Max on Blu-Ray!, 5. Juni 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Der Blaue Max [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is a region-B blu-ray with an English-friendly presentation of the film. It includes monaural German audio, with the original English 4-track, CinemaScope audio presented in matrixed stereo surround. Subtitles aren't forced. The original intermission is included so that none of Jerry Goldsmith's magnificent score is omitted. The presentation is a high-definition upgrade of the former Fox DVD print, and is generally clean and accurately filmlike. Fans of Guillerman's World-War I, flying-ace opus are in for a real treat with this blu-ray upgrade.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A satisfying, mostly English-friendly set for multi-region Herzog Afficionados..., 14. März 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The films Herzog did with Kinski are among his best work. This set contains highly-satisfying upgrades on the Anchor Bay DVDs that have been available for English-speaking audiences for years now. Only the WOYZECK blu-ray is not available with an English translation. There are only optional German subtitles for the films, but AGUIRRE, NOSFERATU, FITZCARRALDO and COBRA VERDE contain English dubs, which are quite satisfying given the glorious visuals on display. The English-language documentary BURDEN OF DREAMS is included on the FITZCARRALDO blu-ray.
The English dubs are the original theatrical monaural tracks (the German versions include the DTS-HD 5.1 boost along with the German mono audio tracks, but aren't English friendly). Certain introductory titles are not translated to English (including the Portuguese intro for COBRA VERDE), but these are brief and shouldn't hinder enjoying these terrific films (most fans will probably have the films on dvd and can obtain the English intros there).
This set is region-B locked, but for those with all-region players, this is a fabulous upgrade of some important International films by one of the world's great filmmakers. The accurate, film-like presentations are superb!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Esther and The King in anamorphic scope and the original English soundtrack, 16. Dezember 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Long seen in cropped public domain versions, this dvd presents the film the way it should be seen. The scope print used is excellent and the film reflects the success of Italian peplums in America at the time of it's release. The original soundtrack is monaural, as was the custom for foreign-produced CinemaScope films of the time. Great for collectors of the sword-and-sandal genre.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Muscleman camp with loads of fun fur, 16. Dezember 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
A fine, colorful anamorphic scope print that contains three different dubs: German, English and Italian. The English dub is the silliest of all and contains bits of Italian dialogue for slight scenes cut by the US distributor. This is about as trashy a peplum as you could find and is great for loads of laughs. It gives new meaning to the term fun fur. Reg Lewis never did another of these muscleman movies and was replaced by Kirk Morris for the sequel, Colossus and the Headhunters. This is the best version of this film currently available on video anywhere.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Warlock blu-ray edition a step up from the US Fox dvd, 25. November 2012
I did a comparison of this blu-ray to the US dvd release and this is a high-definition scan of the same print, and it's a significant step up in quality (particularly if you are projecting the image). There appears to be no digital manipulation, so there's a pleasant, filmlike accuracy to the overall presentation. It's region B locked, and offers a German or English soundtrack without subtitles (both DTS HD 2.0 monaural). It's a terrific Western with sophisticated overtones and standout performances, and worthy of this very nice, high-definition edition.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An English-friendly, region-B blu-ray that looks superb, 21. August 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Der lange, heiße Sommer [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is about as good looking a CinemaScope presentation as most fans would want, looking accurately filmlike with very little "digitizing". The scanned elements exhibit the same anomalies as the previous DVD release, but the high-definition upgrade is wonderful.
Sadly, the 2.0 DTS-HD English and German soundtracks are presented monaurally on this blu-ray, which is a real shame since the 4-track sound on the DVD has a stereo surround matrix. The monophonic mix is quite good, but nevertheless costs this presentation a ratings star. This is region B with optional (unforced) subtitling.
This film is a glossy Deep-South romance (from a couple of Faulkner stories) whose sappy ending in no way hinders the splendid play acting by an astoundingly great cast. Marvelous entertainment that's ripe for blu-ray.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sadly, there is no English language version as described, 8. Juli 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
There is only a German dub and the original Italian soundtrack on this dvd. The main feature has a compromised screen ratio (approximately 2 to 1), while the feature is presented again in the special features with a more correct scope ration. The presentation is anamorphic, monaural and satisfactory for both.
