Sign 'O' The Times (1987)

Prince's classic concert movie for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK.

The initial run includes a set of five art cards, reproductions of original theatrical lobby cards.


Prince
Sign 'O' the Times
Released 20th January 2020
Prince and his band bring his Grammy Nominated Album “Sign 'O' the Times” (1987) to life in what is one of the greatest concert films ever made. Although the album of the same name is now broadly recognised as the pinnacle of Prince's musical achievements, initial sales failed to reach the heights of Purple Rain. The idea of a concert film was soon formed, in order to promote the album to American audiences in theatres.

Shot in Rotterdam and at Prince's Paisley Park Studios, this ground-breaking movie is punctuated with specially-filmed, dramatic vignettes and captures one of the greatest talents in popular music history at the peak of his powers

Nope. Still hoping we'll get a 3D release someday. Plus it looks a lot nicer, imo, in the wider aspect ratio of the 3D version. Then again, the 2D version was opened up to 1.85, as it was filmed in Super35 and cropped for the 3D release.

I looked at the 101 sale earlier.

It's exactly the same as every other sale they've had.

No, it isn't. There are no dvd's on sale so it's worse than every other sale they've had. :lol:

SPLIT SECOND


Released 27th July 2020

101 Films presents Split Second (1992), a dark, dystopian thriller starring Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) as a veteran detective on the trail of a serial killer in a rainswept future London. Co-starring Alastair Duncan and Kim Cattrall and supported by a host of legendary British character actors, this newly restored presentation of the film is complemented with extensive new interviews with the filmmakers.

The year is 2008, and heavy rainfall has flooded large areas of London. Rookie police officer Dick Durkin (Alastair Duncan) is assigned to partner maverick Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer), a burnt-out and highly cynical homicide detective who was unable to prevent the murder of his partner by a serial killer three years earlier. Following a spate of murders it appears that the killer has returned, and Stone and Durkin are assigned to the case. After investigating the scenes of several slayings they appear no closer to identifying the killer, but a mysterious connection to Stone keeps the trail warm. As each gruesome murder draws the detectives closer to the killer, the killer gets closer to them, until they must finally confront the true evil that lurks below the streets of London.

Yeah, it's pretty stacked and the new art is cool.

Maybe they'll reissue the Sho Kosugi films they kinda botched the first time round.

The Black Windmill is a decent watch.

Don Siegel in i think his only British directing job with Michael Caine, Delphine (Daughters of Darkness) Seyrig and Donald Pleasence make a pretty good spy thriller

slightly off topic. the above exchange got me to thinking. is it me (caveat: i don't watch that much modern genre material these days), but it seems there is not that much gratuitous nudity in the cinema anymore? it seems to have all moved to series streaming e.g. Game of Thrones.

I think you are right, Rob.

Series such as The Deuce, GOT, Spartacus (I know it's ten years ago), Californication, Boardwalk Empire and such like have far more nudity than mainstream cinema.

No nudity is a dying art :lol:

The problem with the amount nudity in GoT is that when anyone was talking about the show it was the first thing they mentioned and before i had even watched any of it they made it sound like a complete porn series which sort of proves that nudity in cinema is rare these days when people were so shocked with GoT.
