Indie releases including DVD Titles for £6.99?!
Before we get to the £6.99 discs we have Thicker Than Water from MIA starring Ice Cube, Kidada Jones, MC Eiht and late rapper 'Big Pun'. The disc is down for release on 25 September and includes a widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 and Stereo sound, music videos (Westside Connection: 'Let it Reign' and MC Eiht: 'Thicker Than Water'), theatrical trailer, production notes and cast biographies.
Body Weapon is due on 4 September under the Hong Kong Legends label. Unlike their previous high-quality releases, this is one of those 'added eroticism' releases! Starring Angie Cheung and Chiu Man Chuk the DVD release will retail for £19.99 and will feature an anamorphic 16:9 widescreen transfer, English and Cantonese soundtracks, a UK music promo video, Chiu Man Chuk featurette, star biography showcase, theatrical trailer and a photo gallery. It's good to see some unknown releases getting the special edition treatment!
Hitman, starring international star Jet Li, is due for release on 28 August also under the Hong Kong Legends label. The disc will retail for £19.99 and will feature an anamorphic widescreen transfer, English and Cantonese soundtracks, photo gallery, biographies, filmographies, interview gallery, behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, the theatrical trailer and a special UK promo trailer.
Now here's the interesting bit! Odyssey are releasing a range of discs on 11 September which will retail at a budget price of £6.99. Undoubtedly, they're unlikely to be anywhere near demo quality and I very much doubt there will be anything other than second rate TV movies to chose from! Titles to be released on 11 September include Baby Snatcher starring David Duchovny, Dangerous Intentions starring Corbin Bernsen and Donna Mills, David's Mother starring Kirstey Alley, The People Next Door starring Faye Dunaway and Nicolette Sheridan, She Fought Alone, One Woman's Courage starring Margot Kidder and Patty Duke, Payback starring Mary Tyler Moore, Sad Inheritance, To Save The Children with Robert Ulrich, Underground Father: Fugitive from Justice, The Unspoken Truth starring Robert Englund and Untamed Love...
