    Nice group of assumptions there.
    Feel free to pass but outside of no extras there is a good chance you are wrong about the others.
    It's stated it's from a dupe neg so it probably looks pretty good. Aspect ratio is likely correct.
    It's curious it's listed as rated R as the film was released PG but trimmed, and it's possible this might be a longer version.

    Not saying I am purchasing either but I'm curious to hear more about this release.

    I see that you obviously haven't watched Code Red's previous Milligan blu-rays: BLOODTHIRSTY BUTCHERS, TORTURE DUNGEON, & MAN WITH TWO HEADS. The blus are PRIMO! ( ;

    Hopefully, Vinegar Syndrome will release their fine transfer of GURU, THE MAD MONK, as well as FLESHPOT ON 42ND STREET, on blu, or dvd.

    Every Milligan movie makes me want to see the next! I'm relatively new to Milligan, but I really dig the overwrought, melodramatic low-fi charm. I've got the BFI release, the Code Red discs, the two VS downloads, and a couple SWV discs, but it's still not enough!

    I was overjoyed about the Code Red Milligan releases when they were announced way back, but the talk of improper cropping along with Bill's vocal disdain for the films and the high price tag has led me to hold off.

    I'm not all that keen to pay over $20 for a Blu-Ray that isn't up to scratch. Anyone got a good idea which of the Code Red releases are definitely worth getting, and which ones suffer from being incorrectly cropped to 16:9 or have other problems?

    Welcome to the fold, Ben. It's a lifelong commitment, and not one many people understand :D

    Have you read Jimmy McDonough's biography of Milligan yet?

    Nope, haven't read that book. Perhaps eventually!

    Re: the matting for widescreen -- why wouldn't this be correct? Chances are they were shown this way in the grindhouses. I'd like to have seen unmatted versions included, but I'm a-ok with these discs.

    Unmatted versions included would have been nice but then would require BD50's. I am very happy with them as is as well.

    When Milligan shot these films the viewfinder did not correlate to the image captured, hence his framing was always a mess. The full screen versions may show more image ( and this is why some cry foul on the widescreen versions ) but in every case the full frame versions of these films look just as carelessly framed, or in may instances, even more-so.

    Here are a couple reviews for the 2 new Milligan BD's

    It's a good one; a fun read. There's a great anecdote within it about Milligan disrupting a performance (for children, no less) of Peter Pan.

    I'm usually one for a finely photographed film, but there's something about Milligan's haphazardly photographed pictures - they're more like pantomimes, with the photography almost an afterthought - that I think is genuinely genius-like for its absolute disregard for the conventions of motion picture photography.
