ONCE UPON...WEST: Region 2 Edition

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by alex crouvier, Oct 25, 2003.

  1. In a word: Wow! The package comes in a high grade cardboard slipcase in
    which there is the double gatefold that holds the 2 discs plus a trivia
    booklet. The whole thing has that classy very 60s illustration you see in
    adverts and some cool quotes form the film. It seems that a lot of UK titles
    come packaged this way. Together with this, I also received MILLER'S
    CROSSING, SAVING PVT RYAN (DTS) and they all come in this nicely textured
    cardboard which looks sturdier than the photo-slick but thin cardboard boxes
    for Region 1 packages.

    The transfer itself is stupendous. Along with Warner/MGM edition of NORTH BY
    NORTHWEST, this DVD has the best transfer for a film more than 30 years old.
    There is none of the shimmering edge enhancement pain-in-the-ass you see in
    a lot of recent releases. And ONCE..WEST is shot with a lot of deep focus
    photography which is chockful of minute details. I didn't even use
    progressive scan but fed through my Sony Wega TV (the one that doubles the
    resolution articially) it looks film like. Colors are solid and well
    saturated, no shimmering, no bleeding, no obvious artifacts. Splendid! Wet
    dream comes true!

    does your version of OUATITW has Spanish subtitles, and if it does, where
    did buy it from?

  3. Yes, it does have a Spanish subtitle along with more than
    20 other from virtually every major European tongue

    the Criterions etc..)?

  6. If you are refering to an R1 of the subject title - it will not be
    available until November 18.
