Uncut by Crom!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conan The Barbarian [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
At last we in the UK get an uncut version of Conan The Barbarian, one of my all time fave films. Admittedly, if you want to see it, you have to tweak your Blu-ray player to display Dutch language text on the disc playback settings (dunno if this will work set to French or something else other than UK) - for any help, see the Discussion thread associated with this blu-ray...
As for the picture quality of this new release, while it does look a bit grainy in some places, probably due to the age of the film, its defo worth having on blu-ray - in some areas it was like watching it for the first time, noticing detail I swear I'd never seen before. Fantastic. Not had a chance to look at the extras, although most of them seem to be the same as the last DVD release; having said that, the cover does suggest there are some new features for this release. I suppose my only complaint would be the packaging. As someone else said, the artwork is a bit naff. My release came with a slip-over cardboard sleeve, but like so many blu-ray releases i've bought recently, no booklet. It just seems rather basic; would have liked a Limted Edition version with some physical extras of some kind. In fact, something like the limited metal steelbook that the last DVD release was issued in early on would have been awesome.
The cover lists the blu-ray as region ABC, which i assume means it plays worldwide, which is good; they should do this for all older films being re-released on blu-ray.
And one final thing; I notice Amazon.fr are releasing a double pack on blu-ray of Conan The Barbarian and Conan The Destroyer. Think i might snap that up!
