Bought this for The Bourne Legacy, the bonus DVD, and the digibook.

Differences between the US and the UK package designs:
US:
- Sturdy outer box
- The pages have a glossy surface with more colors
- The special features are listed on each page of the series
- The Bonus DVD contents are listed on the page
- The back cover of the digibook has a picture of Jason Bourne running
- The slot for the Jason Bourne page contains a dummy cardboard blu-ray disc
- The Jason Bourne page has a blurb and comes before the Bonus DVD page

UK:
- Flimsy outer box (Always :( )
- The pages have a matte surface with a greyish tone
- The special features are not listed on each page of the series
- The Bonus DVD contents are not listed on the page
- The back cover of the digibook does not have any picture at all
- The slot for the Jason Bourne page is empty
- The Jason Bourne page does not have a blurb and comes after the Bonus DVD page :-?

Winner: US

One of Alan Silvestri's best works. If you're a fan of the film, this is a must-have! One of the few OSTs you can listen to over and over and not get bored!

TVP limited edition small hardboxes of selected Shaw Brothers collection.

The good:
1. The original theatrical poster
2. The special black plastic case
3. The limited availability
4. The video and audio quality

The not-so-good:
1. The price (That of the big hardboxes is even pricier)
2. The inner side of the case is plain black
3. The few Shaw Brothers titles available in this edition (Not more than 20, I guess)

Other Shaw Brothers titles available in this edition, to my knowledge, most of which have been OOP:
- Blood Brothers (1973)
- Five Shaolin Masters (1974) :-D
- Heroes Two (1974)
- Savage Five (1974) :-D :-D :-D
- Disciples of Shaolin (1975)
- 7 Man Army (1976) :-D
- Shaolin Avengers (1976) :-D :-D
- The Magic Blade (1976) :-D :-D

Of course, you must first be familiar with the Shaw Brothers universe to enjoy their movies :-D

Cover B limited to 444 copies. Chuck Norris looks cooler in the shades 8)

Cover A (555 copies) is the German poster and Cover C (333 copies) is the US poster, both of which are less attractive.

Saw this one at the cinema and quite liked it.

Thunder / Thunder 3 OST (Music by Francesco De Masi)
I have been waiting for ages for this mid-80's Italian First Blood rip-off to be released on DVD. Very good orchestrated music with a heroic vibe to it 8)

Back cover

Booklet in Italian and English!

Booklet centerfold

This is one prime example of Francesco De Masi's brilliant work - a 9 out of 10.

Commandos

Throughout the film, the picture quality fluctuates from poor to good.

Upsides:
• Anamorphic OAR of 2.35: 1
• The longer version (102' PAL DVD), not the shorter US version that was re-titled Sullivan's Marauders

Downsides:
• No English audio :(
• Not the full uncut version (113')

The War Devils
Image
Image
Image

Upsides:
• Anamorphic 1.85: 1

Downsides:
• No English audio :(
• Not the full uncut version
• Not the OAR of 2.35:1

I saw this twice in '87: at the cinema and also on video. I thought this supernatural horror was quite atmospheric.
