Optimum / Studio Canal Thread
 
Optimum have delayed the Region 2 release of Rider On The Rain until September. I read recently on the film's IMDb forum that Optimum have been trying to find the English dubbed version. Apparently the previous release was a French dubbed version and the picture was terrible.

It was either on the Anchor Bay forum, Cult Movie Forums or on here, where I'd asked about a Charles Bronson film I'd seen a DVD of on the shelves in my local HMV. Someone replied saying the picture was poor and that it may be or was a public domain release.

Other Optimum releases

I recently bought a Lee Van Cleef western called Barquero on R2 which I'd never heard of before. Inside was a booklet telling you about past, present and future Optimum releases. What particularly caught my eye were the following (these have been mentioned in recent news articles on websites DVD Times and DVD Active):

Electra Glide In Blue
Hardware: Special Edition

I'm waiting for their release of Hammer's LOST CONTINENT (1968) an adaption of Dennis Wheatley's Uncharted Seas.I have the OOP Anchor Bay r0 disc but the film is cut together from about 3 different print sources of varying quality.I'm hoping that this will be taken from a better source.

I was thinking of starting an Optimum thread!:)

I picked up their disc of Turkey Shoot recently and was suprised to find they had actually bothered to include some extras! It had the featurette from the Umbrella disc and a interview with the director, which i think was shot for this release.

Optimum are re-issuing Xtro and Emmanuelle.

Their last release of Emmanuelle was pretty good. First time uncut in the UK and a nice print.

Their recent release of THIEF is anamorphic and crystal clear!:woot:

I'll definitely pick up Xtro, the last time I saw this was on pre-cert video.

Some great titles on Optimum. I think I have about 30 of their releases. My first Optimum, and probably one of my favourites is Lynch's Naked Lunch which I bought back in 2004.

Hopefully they'll release the complete version. The Film 2000 DVD is missing a few brief (non-violent) scenes that are present in the German DVD and old UK video versions.

This new edition is going to have a new documentary.
