No Blessed Commentary...., 4 Aug. 2010
Let me start by saying I am a huge Flash Gordon fan and have been looking forward for a long time to this film being released on blu-ray.
To my dissapointment the Brian Blessed Commentary found on the 25th Silver Editon dvd has been removed.
Possibly one of the best audio commentary of all time removed. So another blu-ray with less features than its dvd release.
Have no idea why this was done to the region B version as it is on the region A (US) version.
The Queen soundtrack is great but already have that as would most Flash Gordon and Queen fans. Would have preffered Brian's bombastic commentary and the fantastic Alex Ross cover that is gracing the region A version. Also missing from the region A version are the following:
Alex Ross, Renowned Comic Artist, on Flash Gordon
Writing a Classic: Screenwriter Lorenzo Semple, Jr.
First Episode of the Flash Gordon 1963 Serial.
To finish this is not the blu-ray package this film deserves.
