Mail Call : Japanese Spaghetti Western Laserdiscs

On a semi-regular search for Japanese laserdiscs I came across these two beauties for sale, and despite having both films on dvd I just couldn't resist picking them up. Why? Just look at the artwork!

First up is Sergio Corbucci's masterpiece The Great Silence, which I reviewed here.



In addition to the fantastic artwork both discs come with an insert with writing about each film, unsurprisingly this is in Japanese.




The second disc is Giulio Questi's delirious Django Kill! If You Live Shoot. Again beautiful artwork here.





Two perfect examples of why Laserdiscs are still very desirable! More to come soon.

Gorgeous... I feel like going straight over to eBay now and throwing down some cash. This 1987 Japanese laser of Blade Runner has been in my Watch list for ages now...
