Anyone have an opinion on what is the better version of Argento's 'Opera/Terror at the Opera' - Blue Underground or Arrow? Or any others worth considering?
Thanks, Lincoln.

I just ordered the David Lynch Blu-ray box set from CEX for 12, thanks to the tip from Stephen - I know that the set came under fire but for 12 - cheaper than Blue Velvet alone in HMV it's worth getting! Now I have a copy of Dune I need to get rid of :lol:

I popped out for lunch and ended up spending 30-odd on DVDs, and I still forgot to buy a sandwich.

Les Diaboliques (Arrow Classics).
Persona
Faster Pussycat...Kill! Kill! (they had a bunch of Russ Meyer films in Head for 5, so I may pop in again after work)
The Devils (an ex-girlfriend has my old copy, rather than have to talk to her, I just bought it again).

A very wise decision. She might have sold it anyway!

Make sure you post a quick review of it so I know whether to open mine tomorrow when it comes or leave it sealed, adding value for the eBay crowd :lol:

Not a lot of difference picture wise - DVD Beaver says contrast is slightly better on the US release. Blue Underground is reissue of single disc Anchor Bay, so also has the documentary which Arrow doesn't. Limited 2 disc OOP Anchor Bay has the soundtrack as well. But if you're willing to forfeit the extras for the best audio - then Arrow is the one to go for, as that has the two English dubs (Cannes 2.0 & Redub 5.1) and the Italian Dub (2.0) with optional English subs.

So if you're not fussed about audio but like extras, go US. If you want the best of both worlds extras and movie wise, pick up both. If you really only care about the best current presentation of the movie, I'd say Arrow due to its minor picture differences, but significantly improved audio options.
