Crimson Rivers, The (2000) [PILF-2869]

For the community, some screenshots of one the last LD ever made.
You don't see it directly on my captures, but the picture quality is very good.
Dolby Digital has a new (at the time) intro that I've never seen on any other LD.
And it's fun because I speak french and I can enjoy this movie in French on a Japanese LD (!)

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to share some captures of this scarce title.

Very nice disc. It is invaluable to see some pictures of it here, thank you for that. I will probably never see it in real. It's a good movie too, I imported the Taiwanese blu-ray years ago to watch it for the first time.

Yes, thx for sharing. Unless everybody will get rid of their collections, I consider myself as one of the guys who will never get their hands on this disc :-) I like the movie, though there were some minor changes from the novel. Cassel was great with Reno, a gritty movie on a what seems fine Laserdisc.

I bought it from a trusted seller in japan that used to help me get stuff on YJ.
… and I sold it in 2016 when I got an "offer you can't refuse" for it.

It's been on my wishlist for 20 years but.... I don't think I'll ever find one at a reasonable price!

(lot of 5 including Matrix and Crimson Rivers)
https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/f511844669

=> JPY 287,100 == $2,625

I gave up before $500. You can buy a mint/full set HLD-X0 for that price... including shipping. :crazy:

Well, at least is a real movie and not The Matrix or Sixth Day.

5000 is a big number. Did this transaction really happen I ask myself :think: ? Surely this amount of money can be reasonable for a buyer when having unlimited funds. Guess it comes down to what you make and are happy to spend on a hobby. Have nothing against it just to be clear.
When it was up for auction on lddb I had a look at the pictures and could not help thinking I got the exact same pictures when I got my copy last year.
It’s a great title to own on ld for sure.
If only I had ordered it back in the day when it was fairly cheap

Are you sure they have unlimited funds and aren't just living in their parents apartment's closet????
People are not thinking about their future 1 month in advance let alone 1 year
and spending too much on this stuff to inflate the value right now.

I started collecting movies early on when I was a teenager and broke. I am making significantly more money now. I was buying a lot more movies and paying a lot more for each when I was broke. Although I have more funds now, I have a lot more options with my money. Sinking thousands into a dead format or even into a hobby in general is never among the top options now.

I am not saying this person is broke by any chance but this is my honest story. With my limited funds and limited career reach, I felt buying a rare movie at a few hundred $ was a quick trophy and something to look forward to.
