Firstly why? It's shit and even the completion in me refuses to own it. Or I won't let the bugger I'm not sure.

Secondly, sort of reminds me of a time I tried to buy a dvd in Blockbuster (remember that place??!?)
I picked up a dvd of Jason X. I don't recall exactly how much but it was a good price given it was quite new out. Got home and realised they had put a rental disc in the case. No bonus features. Took it back and dealt with a middle aged dear who had no idea what i was talking about. Simply couldn't understand the problem. When I tried to explain that the extras listed on the reverse simply weren't present she asked me "what do you mean 'extras'??? What are extras???". I ended up with a refund because the matter couldn't be resolved because that evening a (at the time) major UK movie rental company simply didn't have any staff in that knew what extra features were.

That is an absolute steal. I have the same limited edition set and it is a stunning release. I think the T-shirt is also still in the plastic wrap and unopened.

Just bought the German blu-ray of Damiano Damiani's A Genius, Two Partners & A Dupe from 1975. The opening 8 minutes are directed by Sergio Leone and whilst it's nowhere near the same quality as My Name Is Nobody ,it's still an interesting film. I expect it to look a little rough as much of the film negative was famously stolen and offered for ransom (which wasn't paid resulting in the film being cobbled together from previously rejected footage). But I am still excited to see it.

If you like that version you should check out the Japanese cut as it's much better, I can't even watch the theatrical cut as they ruined it with cheap music.

While I do like it as an action Sci-Fi, the music is but nothing next to Mr. Reeves worst performance I've seen, as the plot involves him having a leaking implant in his brain the damn thing makes him overact to the point of being comedic if you're no fan of Reeves steer clear of this, but still good fun to be had tho as a popcorn munching no-brainer.
