Coffin Joe Collection. My curiosity got the better of me here, I've never seen anything by Coffin Joe but when this 9 film box set came up at a stupid price I couldn't resist. I've read that the transfers are poor but at around £1 per film I thought it was worth a shot. Any recommendations of where to start?
Escape from L.A. John Carpenter's horribly disappointing sequel to Escape From New York on blu, if there are any fans of the film, the blu ray actually looks very good. I'd have been better off with the crappy dvd, maybe the terrible effects wouldn't have looked quite so obviously fake. Review here
Rolling Thunder. Excellent movie on a solid blu, a must have for me.
Merantau Warrior. With the release of Gareth Evans The Raid edging ever closer, I picked up his Merantau Warrior. Numerous people have recommended this to me, perhaps the most persuasive argument coming from fellow blogger robotGEEK
Hanna. One of my picks of last year, Joe Wright's fairytale influenced action film seems to divide audiences. I highly recommend it, and the excellent blu ray.
Mirrormask. Dave McKean's film of Neil Gaiman's Mirrormask, I saw the trailer for this when it came out and promptly forgot about it, so I picked it up. I don't know much about it but I thought it looked very interesting.
More to come soon.
