About this deal

While they gain extra presence, they’re not overblown - everything still looks true to the film released 30 years ago. Rubinek’s ends up being funny because it sounds as though he got the role because Scott thought he was doing a spot-on impersonation of producer Joel Silver, whom Rubinek was not at all familiar with. While Scott and Tarantino certainly deserve their accolades, this movie wouldn’t be anything without its cast.

Inside the slipcase, there’s a double-sided poster with the original theatrical poster on one side and the newly commissioned art on the other. While Quentin Tarantino gets a lot of due credit for his writing of True Romance, Tony Scott deserves a lot of the credit for his time in the director’s chair. This release contains only the director's cut, however the theatrical cut was released on an R rated rental VHS. It is scary, engaging, thought provoking and demands repeat viewing – we will likely never see its like again. The original photography and grainy nature can limit the finer details at times so the image maybe doesn’t come off as sharp or well defined as one may expect for the format, but that film texture is there and it's rendered perfectly.Still, he talks about working with Walken on their scene together and recounts concerns he had over a prop gun to be used in a scene only for Scott to end up demonstrating on himself to show how safe it was and for that demonstration to not go well (Scott confirms the story in his commentary). Scott works from a wide shot gradually cutting closer and closer into a closeup adds tension to each dialog exchange, but it also gives the actors room to work the scene. Dialogue is clean and clear, never edgy (even when people are yelling) and the score by Hans Zimmer (that plays off of Badland’s score) is crisp and clear with incredible fidelity,allowing you to make out each xylophone and marimba strike. Of the three I was probably most fond of Tronick’s interview since his ends up being far more technical in nature, the co-editor explaining how Scott would make sure he got the coverage he needed, even doing the second unit work, and the difficulty they had run into in getting an R rating with the MPAA. Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote, " True Romance, a vibrant, grisly, gleefully amoral road movie directed by Tony Scott and dominated by the machismo of Quentin Tarantino (who wrote this screenplay before he directed Reservoir Dogs), is sure to offend a good-sized segment of the moviegoing population".

Europe's busiest forums, with independent news and expert reviews, for TVs, Home Cinema, Hi-Fi, Movies, Gaming, Tech and more. Kong delivers on what it promises; the glorious spectacle of the two greatest movie monsters duking it out. There’s a scene where Saul Rubinek’s character is driving along the highway at what appears to be sunset, and I thought the coloursin the sky and how the sun hits his face allhad a wonderful pop to them.

Add to that an amazing extras package that combines new and existing material and you have an unmissable set. All of this is wrapped up into a charming hyper-violent love story where you're always rooting for this unlikely pair of star-crossed lovers. From Brad Pitt as a couch surfing stoner, Gary Oldman as a white pimp who thinks he’s black, to the now iconic face-off between Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken, but it’s James Gandolfini’s terrifying mob hitman who very nearly steals the film.

Rappaport ends up being the most excited of the group, clearly aware of the boost this film gave to him. The set is pretty good, the native Dolby Vision 4K image is stunning; being pin sharp detailed, with all-natural colours and incredible blacks with beautiful highlights. Dante’s inspirations are clear to see upon viewing, and his inexperience and budgetary constraints do peep around the corner, but the structure, setting, scripting and build-up make The Howling a classic of the genre.They also end up porting over most of the material found on Warner’s previous special editions while also creating their own. Robbers", a song by the English indie rock band The 1975 from their 2013 debut album, was inspired by the film. Zack Snyder's Justice League was years in the making, something of an impossible unicorn to many, finally released to surprising critical and audience acclaim and, at the very least, universal agreement that it was significantly better than Whedon's 2017 cut.

Released last year in the UK and now making its way over to North America, Arrow Video presents their 4K UHD edition for Tony Scott’s True Romance, presenting both the theatrical and director’s cuts in the aspect ratio of about 2. MSN Movies wrote: "With just a few minutes of screen time, Gary Oldman crafts one of cinema's most memorable villains: the brutal, dreadlocked pimp Drexl Spivey.The extras package is terrific, with both new and old features on the UHD, plus the full Creature Designers: The Frankenstein Complex documentary on DVD as well as art cards and a 20 page booklet. This time around we're looking at the single-disc Limited Edition which offers up a lot of the same swag, including the same booklet, a reversible poster, and reproduction lobby cards. The native 4K image is stunning; clear, bright with incredible vivid colouring and a black level to die for, yet still retaining that grimy, grainy feel that the film thrives on. Editor’s Note: The vast majority of this review is sourced from Stephen’s Bjork’s review of the UK Arrow Video 4K Ultra HD release of the film, with minor additions by Tim Salmons to highlight the differences between the two releases. This also leads to him talking about Reservoir Dogs with some comments on his script for Natural Born Killers.
