Death Wish on blu-ray, what shall I buy?

Postby André_Jølsen » 23 May 2018 10:31

Hello, hello :)

I do want to see all of them again.
If i understand right the right way to go with 2/3 is this one; https://www.umbrellaent.com.au/movies/3 ... results=19
Number 2 in different version. Uncut.

It looks to me that this is the version to get of 4/5; https://www.umbrellaent.com.au/movies/3 ... results=19
DVDcompare.net says it's uncut.

Am I right or wrong here?

When it comes to number one I am more unsure.
2 versions
Warner; http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Death-Wish-Blu-ray/42645/
Paramount; http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Death-Wis ... ay/185701/

It looks like Paramount has released the same disc, but I couldn't find the Paramount version on dvdcompare.net
Does anyone know for sure that they are the same?

For “Death Wish” the Identical US Warner and Paramount are the only available. Hopefully one day someone will issue it with relevant extras.

For “2” the Shout! Factory has 2 cuts in HD with an exclusive commentary by Paul Talbot. I haven’t heard this but judging from the commentaries he did for 4 and 5, it has to be top notch.

The Umbrella “2” is a double feature with “3” and has multiple alternate cuts of the film on a bonus DVD, amd has a lot of video based extras. Review is here: http://dvdcompare.net/review.php?rid=4896
Note about the audio track being upped to lossless audio in the quiet reissue.

4 and 5 - definitely go for the Umbrella. Review is coming soon!

First of all; thank you very much :)
You rule. And, I do love the dvdcompare site.
I never buy a movie without checking with you guys first.

I did order Umbrella of 2/3 and 4/5 and the first one from Paramount.
You said that Shout have an extra version in HD of number DW2, but as long as I get the uncut one in HD I am good. I never watch the shorter versions.
It's a shame that number one hasn't recived a spec ed. I guess it will be announced now that I have ordered it, hehe

I checked BBFC, and it was released uncut in 2006. It looks like the specs are the same as the US one
