So is this the right one? https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B06XS9TPYR/panandscathed-20
At only $8 I feel like it's not the new version.
It is. Amazon got into a price war with Best Buy and Fox Connect. I just got my copy.
Yup. That's the new one. Catalogue titles are usually cheaper than new releases. My copy just arrived today.
It's one of the best films ever made. I don't know if you could say that Heat belongs under the categorization of Americana, but in my mind it is essential; Like Deliverance and Easy Riders. It's a depiction of American life that is impossible anywhere else.
Michael Mann invented this urban style. Nobody can get these sorts of shots of the urban metropolisis, and those that get close (Drive) are- imitating Manns style.
You saw it in Collateral too, and from the vibe I get from a lot of you guys- Miami Vice too. But I think Miami Vice, the TV Show is still superior, with Collateral and HEAT being his magnus opus.
As as been pointed out in this thread, the audio mix is unfortunately pretty poor in a few dialogue-heavy scenes. The most egregious example is in the restaurant where De Niro meets his future GF for the first time. For some reason Mann decided it was more important for us to hear the sound of the kitchen and the customers eating than the actual dialogue.
Good. Didn't nothing any big difference with the OG blu ray but I also don't have a crazy good audio setup.
Wow, a no-brainer at $8
He's complaining about the dual-languages.
Came to post this. Just brutal...
And 8 USD does not convert to 12.99 CAD smh.
Does the Canadian version come with a slipcover?
I was fortunate enough to attend the 4K screening (the panel with Christopher Nolan is included on this release) and it was amazing. Really disappointed they didn't opt to put out the UHD Blu-Ray
Ah ok, yeah I didn't even notice the double language.
I thought he was preferring the one with the characters overlayed on LA:
Do not like this one.
