@Yihetuan Have you had a chance to watch the Chaser Blu-Ray yet? I still have my DVD from 2010. I haven't watched it in years so I was on the fence about upgrading, I enjoyed it way back when. Is it a worthwhile upgrade?

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet but the usual suspects over at the other forum are raving about the quality and saying it's Umbrella's best looking transfer since I Saw the Devil.

Wow that's a ringing endorsement! Thanks for the heads up, although I still have the Magnolia Pictures I Saw the Devil, I never got a chance to check out Umbrellas version

Finally got Wednesday the other day. It looks really good, so I’m super excited to finally get to watch it.

yeah, I don't think there's a definitive release of I Saw the Devil. I tend to agree with the posters below. Depends on what cut of the movie you prefer.

Enjoyed this thoroughly,  cool fights and Barry screen presence is pure bravado. Lots of laugh out loud moments to add. Cool Mondo.

Am I reading this right- the only part of the quoted text regarding THE CHASER is the very positive second to last sentence? If so, what is the writer criticizing earlier on in the quote; the release of which film? Thanks.

I think they are referring to another release of a film called Them (Ils), Bob.

@Knetan is correct. They're criticizing a different release.

Thanks for the answer, gentleman.

That's a shame if the film THEM (aka. ILS) has a poor transfer as it's a very effective thriller. I first saw it at a film festival and my wife and I have watched it a few times since.

As for the comments on I SAW THE DEVIL (seemingly not having a release with high-quality versions of both the Korean and the International cuts) that is a shame. It's a fantastic movie that deserves a premium edition including all versions and plenty of extras. THE YELLOW SEA has the same problem- the UK Blu-ray doesn't include the Director's Cut. I wish these two and CITY OF VIOLENCE would get the boutique label treatment.

It's a shame the original Korean blu ray release didn't have English subs for The Yellow Sea. But I did read that The Yellow Sea is getting another release soon in Korea as part of the On Masterpiece Collection. Don't have any details yet but hope it's English friendly this time around.

@De Ming Li (or anyone that's picked this up) would you please share your thoughts on KARATE CONTRA MAFIA? I'm intrigued. The synopsis says it's about a kung fu guy, despite what the title describes. What's the scoop? Any good?

Ah, thanks for the info. Ditto on hoping it's an English-friendly release.

Received yesterday: Bells of death+Portrait in crystal+Legend of the fox.

I already watched Bells of Death and Portrait in Crystal.

The picture quality is excellent. Too bad that they put a picture of Bells of death on the disc of Legend of the fox, and vice versa...

Spectrum sure have some nice designs but I see even they've been lax in the QC department.

Maybe they would offer a replacement disc for those customers, to keep them happy.
