Not a dvd/bd but got this recently (completely slipped my mind)...I now finally have a complete collection until the early nineties,so all the really interesting stuff.

I believe the first issue I bought at my local newsagent was number 56.

It looks great for it's age and I got it for a very reasonable price.



However...the poster that came with it seems to have been put on a wall and got a bit wet at some point (or did someone do the naughty with big G?)...it's a bit wrinkled and has some slight water damage.

So the seller (top bloke who didn't remember anything about it btw) send me this to make up for it:

Progeny - Millennium Series (1998) (Sterling)

I have a few other Sterling dvd's so this will join them in my collection.
Film Aficionado bdc collection - Sterling

Thought that was Prophecy for a second, rather similar covers. Always wanted to see Prophecy.

And is that the Godzilla poster that's in Luigi Cozzi's Profondo Rosso shop? I think I might have seen it in the tour on the Arrow Deep Red disc.

Blade Runner (Warners, Blu)... What to say that hasn't already been said about Ridley Scott's masterpiece - it may well be the Greatest Science Fiction Film (it's only competition would be 2001), and a movie that pays out handsomely with each viewing. Only superlatives will suffice - it's philisophically rich, visually spectacular, brilliantly written and scored and for everyone who worked on the film, surely their finest hour. Syd Mead's futurism aside, Blade Runner feels like a nod to the great film noirs of the fifties - sixty years ago this could easily have been made with Humphrey Bogart playing a frazzled G-man charged with tracking down some Communists trying to infalltrate American soceity. It's a testament to the film that the debate about Deckard's humanity will go on and on, but for this viewer, I never felt he was a replicant...

Progeny is a good film film Bdc.

Pretty grim with some nice gloopy effects.

Seems to be a solid Yuzna (directing)/Gordon (story) collaboration.

Grabbed my first order from the Arrow site. Just picked up a few to fill in my Argento collection:







Huge fan of Argento. I know the flaws in the films but thank you Arrow for putting out such beautiful packages. Stendahl is a very personal favorite of mine. And getting them all for just 16 pounds was the icing on the cake.

According to Paul M Sammon in his book Future Noir, Deckard was supposed to wear a Fedora to further identify him with classic noir protagonists. However, Harrison Ford, having just made Raiders of the Lost Ark, refused as he didn't want to wear the same style hat in two films running.

Ah that's a great story (and a great book). Watching the film again, I kept on thinking of Se7en. David Fincher must have had Blade Runner in mind when making the film. I could list favourite moments all day but one scene I really love is the moment when Roy Batty kills Tyrel - that astonishing look on Rutgar Hauer's face, the rage of knowing his fate is sealed, the realization that his mission has ended in failure. Extraordinary moment...
