    I recently bought the oop American DVD.

    What's holding up DEATH WISH on blu-ray? The sequels are out but not the sire of the spawn.

    Paramount.

    The sequels were MGM. DEATH WISH is showing in HD on Vudu. My best guess is that the most likely scenario for a Blu ray is Olive with no bonus features.

    Paramount.
    That explains it.

    The people who made DEAD MAN DOWN (2013) saw THE EVIL THAT MEN DO. Many similarities. At least one killing is recreated -- the one where Bronson wraps a rope around the neck of a thug and throws his body over the balcony of the hotel to hang.

    I hear there's a longer cut of THE EVIL THAT MEN DO on vhs? I wonder how extensive the additional footage is. Anyone seen it?

    Just rewatched LOVE AND BULLETS for the first time in years. I think the last time I saw this was on TV! I pulled out the VHS and checked it out. It was entertaining, but not AS entertaining as I remember. I still like the film, but it seems to fall flat in parts, and never quite gathers the steam action-wise that it should. Still a solid, middle of the road Bronson film, but this one has slipped a few notches in preference of CB films for me.

    Just because I want to have all of Chuck's films on DVD, though, I'll be picking up the reasonably priced Shout (I think) release.

    I've never heard this! I'd be interested in seeing a longer cut of this movie as well. There's some rather brutal moments in this flick, but it is pretty solid.

    As much as I enjoy Charles Bronson flicks I was having a difficult time justifying $32 for HARD TIMES. I couldn't ignore the high praise it was receiving but still, $32 is a lot for a blind buy when a sub-standard DVD is available on Netflix. And other than ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, I've yet to see a Bronson flick I'd be pleased with paying $32 for. That said, all the praise for HARD TIMES is completely justified. It's fantastic and the transfer is stunning. Money well spent.

    Now that it's on blu-ray HARD TIMES (1975) continues to win friends and influence people.
