Cut-Throats Nine & Joshua from Code Red

Code Red’s double feature DVD of Cut-Throats Nine and Joshua is now out and so I have added a screenshot comparison between the very old Eurovista (bootleg) and Code Red’s DVDs. There really isn’t any question as to which one looks better.

Here is a zoomed-in comparison between the two discs which should show some of the differences… (click the link for a very large image)

I wonder why the first (in line) guy on the left picture ain’t running considering his chain is gone. ;)

Bounty Entertainment discs from Australia + Spanish Dallas

By , August 15, 2011 9:21 pm

Australian company Bounty Entertainment/Bounty Films has recently (April 2011) released several spaghetti western DVDs. Seems to me most of them offer nothing new compared to previous editions (and might even be much worse), but I bought the three that haven’t previously had any kind of official releases. I added the disc infos to the site with several images from all the discs.

The three are:
Kill Django… Kill First / Uccidi Django… uccidi per primo!!! + screenshots
Kitosch, the Man Who Came from the North / Kitosch, l’uomo che veniva dal nord + screenshots
Ringo, It’s Massacre Time / Giunse Ringo e… fu tempo di massacro + screenshots

As you can see they are all cropped from widescreen to fullscreen and the quality certainly isn’t very good. But from what I have understood none of them have previously existed in as good quality as they do on these discs? Unfortunately Kill Django… Kill First has been confirmed to be cut by over 10 minutes, and while I don’t know about Ringo, It’s Massacre Time the running time of only 73 minutes does sound somewhat short (but doesn’t necessarily mean it is cut).
Oh and at least on my setup Kitosch seems to suffer from somewhat low volume and the dialogue comes only from the right channel while effects are on the left one…

I can’t really recommend them, but I guess they are better than nothing. ;)

Also as a bonus, I added some screenshots from the Spanish DVD release of Ten Killers Came from Afar (Dallas aka Il mio nome è Scopone e faccio sempre cappotto). The disc unfortunately has only Italian audio (even though the case mentions Spanish soundtrack and the menu lets you select it) and no subtitles. And it is out of print already.
