Have heard bad things about the Friday 13th part 3 transfer compared to the previous 2. Let us know what you make of it if you would ;)

Cujo is region-free. I know this for defnite as it plays in my Region B player just fine. Lovely transfer too - it never looked this good at the cinema when it first came out! Well worth picking up.

Friday the 13th Part 3 has lovely clarity with solid blacks and crisp colours. However, they've not bothered to celan up the print in any way, which is kind of silly. At one point there were spots and blotches over the screen. There's scratches, blemishes and hairs. Granted, for the greater part of the film it looks perfectly fine. But just when you think 'Oooh that looks superb' up pops a scratch, some dirt or a blemish and it's jarring and makes you go 'Urgh!' I have no doubt that Paramount will milk this cash cow again at some point with a sparkly new 'restored' transfer.

Cheers for the heads up, Reaps. I was waiting to see what the consensus here was, so I'll go ahead and order a copy now.

I tend to not go by reviews anymore. Reviews of Warners Under Siege said it was a sub-par transfer - I thought it looked absolutely stunning. The level of detail in some scenes was breathtaking. Ignore the naysayers on this one.

Is it uncut? The first time I ever saw Cujo was on tv and there was quite a long sex scene in it, hasn't been in any other version I have seen.

I wasn't too keen on it when I was sent a disc for review but I'll watch it again and see if the second viewing changes or affirms my opinion.

Picked up the LETHAL WEAPON collection yesterday.:cool:

Best of all though-Managed to get a SHOGUN ASSASSIN tin,which features the original poster art on the reverse once you peel the synopsis off.:cool:

It also includes the standard DVD.;)

A must have!:woot:

Go on Reaps, be like me and also get the separate Lethal Weapon releases so you can have the nice original poster artwork adorning the covers! I must be mad!!! :lol:

And yes, the Shogun Assassin steelbook is a beauty.
