    Anyone on the fence about the admittedly price Hard Times Blu-ray, I dug into it last night and it's really a great looking transfer.

    What the world needs now is a Charles Bronson thread.

    Speaking of Le Brute (the affectionate nickname the French had for Bronson) my copy of Olive's SHOWDOWN AT BOOT HILL is due to arrive today.

    Which means I know what's for dinner.

    ^^Ya, I was looking around for cheaper prices just a couple hours ago. The transfer sounds great but $30 is a bit more than I want to spend.

    Funny you mention that, I broke down and ordered it yesterday. Can't wait to see it - I've actually never seen the film.

    Hard Times is a favorite of mine from the 1970s. After seeing Hard Times I made a point out of seeing every film by this new director Walter Hill on opening day. Bronson never gave a better performance. Andrew is in for a real treat seeing this for the first time.

    DE LA PART DES COPAINS (1970) needs a decent transfer in the USA. I saw this suspense thriller in 1971 under the title COLD SWEAT. It came back in 1974 as a co-feature when DEATH WISH ignited the box-office. This was the first film Bronson made with 007 originator Terence Young followed by RED SUN (1971). I went to see it because I had a crush on Liv Ullman who figured prominently in the TV spots. All the USA DVD's are cheap public-domain editions in full screen, with missing footage and muddy transfers. But I don't believe it's actually in the public domain. Desperately needs a blu-ray. I don't know who owns it now buy I nominate Blue Underground to get this out.

    Come to think of it, RED SUN was a big hit for Bronson when it played in the states throughout the summer of 1972. It kept popping up for years after that as a co-feature. The Evergreen Entertainment DVD is okay BUT ...

    OK but... it could and should be way better. You'd think given the talent involved in front of the camera it'd get a better release somewhere in the world.
