After a disaster renting saga I almost ended up homeless with my stuff in storage. But yesterday, in the midst of legal action and b******t at work and all kinds of s**t that's hit the fan I got my LD stuff hooked up for the first time in almost 3 months.

Yet again, like in my whole life, people and family fail and have betrayed me and my stuff saves my life.

Reminds me why I keep trying. I almost forgot, my love for stuff has always gotten me through, I truly love it more than people.

Akina Nakamori Bitter Sweet followed by many more music LDs last night. I know you will scoff at my pic but IRL I love this image so much.

:thumbup: :clap: looks bloody brilliant.
hopefully I can start the new year like this. with all my stuff in my own apartment that's mine. I hate where I am now since this is the result of a journy that started October 19th when I went to the hospital but it will finish with getting my own place. I just have to bear a little longer with a house full of other people. [long story-semi jist of it but I couldn't go back to my brother's after the house. meds and local county help with my case worker]

Xtempo, hope things get back on track for you.
Know how it is personally when things go crazy and there aren't any real issues, can't imagine when there are issues.

I should clarify. I have the BD box from Criterion: https://www.criterion.com/boxsets/1012- ... -swordsman

The LD box wouldn't do me any good because I need English subtitles.

I really hope that whatever is happening with you guys gets better soon & things get sorted out in whatever manner that makes things if nothing else more stable & easier for you.

Take care guys.

Cheers & regards to all :thumbup: .

Very nice setup. Your speaker imaging must be really good. You have them properly placed about 1/3th of room length away from your front wall. Do you have your speakers toe’d out?

Just watched the new Arrow blu of Robocop. For some reason I felt compelled to zoom in on some of the shots to see what hardware was mounted on those big media walls in the OCP conference room and Morton's home.

How is that?? I remember back in the day that people still felt that Criterion LD was the best at the time.
I did pickup a bluray of Robocop for a buck at the dollar store but its just the MGM directors cut and I never even bothered to open it.

Does it have the cut content that had previously been locked to the Criterion LD?

I've been watching the Lone Wolf and Cub movies lately.

Thanks, nah not toed in or out, just parallel. Always want to give my speakers plenty of breathing room, that Hokkaido maple deserves it. When I first got em I was in a micro apartment. They sounded terrible up against wall on a desk, I thought they were faulty. Sounds damn good to me these days, still I guess I should experiment more and try some toe...

I don't think any of the Criterion extras have ever been released outside their releases.

The picture looks nearly identical to the MGM Remastered, but this being Arrow their encode is a lot better. They also give you the original 2.0 and 4.0 mixes in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio, something MGM never bothered with. I don't think the old MGM disc included the original theatrical cut either.

The only thing missing compared to the MGM disc is the old "Flesh and Steel" doc.

Picked up a ton of old Ford dealership Laserdiscs, I don't even like cars but these are neat little novelties. Working on watching them all and trying to update the LDDB pages for the ones in there, and adding the ones that aren't.

I don't really care about the extras unless the uncut version of the film counts as an extra. :D

Not only does it come with both the theatrical and unrated cuts, it even comes with the TV version and a slew of alternate takes for that version :mrgreen:

Just re-watched Fist of the North Star: The Movie (1995) [LSTD01241], this time with the JP dub. It still wasn't a good movie, but hearing the familiar voices again was fun. I could definitely hear Akira Kamiya' non-Kenshiro voice in some scenes.

I liked Super Mario Bros tho :mrgreen:

Honestly, I think Fist of the North Star had potential to at least be a decently entertaining martial arts movie. Kenshiro taking down an army of mooks when he enters Shin's palace is probably the highlight of the movie. Unfortunately the direction and photography leave much to be desired.
