Three weeks early!!! Went to F.Y.E today and I saw it so I picked it up. They didn't have the H30 boxset which is supposed to come out on the 14th also. So I guess I have to wait for that one. I don't care much for the remake but I'm a halloween collector so I couldn't resist. Below are pictures.

RZH in HD is going to be a great way to shuttle in a fall season. Should be a ton of fun.

I was generalizing. But in actuality, I think Halloween 07's cinematography is one of its assets.

Franchise

There's no substance to the movie. That's not my fault. I tend to like it though. Look at summer blockbusters. Those things are shit, but people see them and rewatch them by the boat-load.

Could you give us some info on the new documentary?

Also, my opinion on the movie. It's one that I don't really like, but I can't help but watch it over and over. Kinda weird. Maybe it's because it's the newest Halloween movie.

Things I liked:
- Michael
- Score
- 2nd half (chase scene)
- cinematography
- Daniel Harris

Things I didn't like:
- Laurie and Linda (really annoying)
- White trash upbringing
- Rape escape (preferred theatrical much better)
- Loomis (man I miss Donald:bow:)

Just for anyone in the UK who might want the DVD - www.usdirectdvd.com is pretty reliable for importing DVD's. I ordered the 3-disc yesterday morning and they have already shipped it so they are worth a look it you want to get the new DVD (and Blu-ray when it comes out).

Just the two previously released versions, plus a documentary?

Is there anything new besides the documentary?

Yes. Its the Unrated Edition from December (first two discs) with the documentary on the third. No new extras apart from doc.

I picked this up last night and I think the documentary is great! I've only gotten about an hour and a half into it so far. Definitely worth picking up.

I still think Rob should have left some of those deleted scenes in. The scene when Michael picks up the tombstone is AWESOME! He should have left this one in.

This is still my 3rd favorite Halloween movie behind the first two.

Ok, just one more question:

Is the documentary just about Rob Zombie's Halloween, or is there footage/info on any of the others (H1 in particular)?

Obviously this is about the making of the Zombie's remake, solely.

If you're looking for something documenting the entire series you'll need look no further than the Halloween: 25 Years of Terror DVD released a few years ago.

I think so. It's definitely worth the $20. The documentary is 4 1/2 hours long! They start right from the beginning with pre production through each shooting day. Totally awesome.

Since the Blu-ray version is essentially the same package as the DVD (except Blu-ray Live) I thought I'd post this review I found - just the picture and audio section:

Picture/Audio Quality
The print is presented in a 1080p/VC-1 with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. ‘Halloween’ on Blu-ray very good and has a rather clean print with none of the grain present in the DVD version of the film. The dark scenes look very good with deep blacks and with low lighting in most of the scenes that would fail in other films. Colors are rather vibrant as yellows, blues, and reds just jump off the screen as they are some of the primary colors used in the film. Details are sharp due to having such a clean print.

The audio is presented in a English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix, which does a well from a dialog and soundfield perspective. The surrounds work very well with the sound effects that are used from the score. Dialogue comes through the center channel very clear and crisp. This is a very immersive sound mix with bass also being properly spaced out.

^Yup. You can fit way more space on a Blu Ray disc than a DVD disc, resulting in a 2- disc release.

So, by putting the DVD's disc 2 features on Blu-Ray's disc 1, that doesn't compromise some of the BD's video quality of the film itself?

EvilOnTwoLegs
10-18-2008, 04:06 PM
Nope. BD can accommodate WAY more data than DVD...like a ridiculous amount. I wish I could remember the exact figure from when I was working at the plant, but it's escaped my memory. Anyway, there's no sacrifice in quality, and needless to say, the BD will look much, much better than a standard DVD.

EDIT: Okay...ran down the figures. A BD's capacity is about six times that of a dual-layer DVD.
