I don't know about anybody else but when are Mr Lee,s films going to get the same respect when released on DVD as they do in the US.
Having recently returned from New York I purchased several Region 1 DVD's everyone packed with extras including Audio commentary, Documentaries, Interviews etc (The 45 minute interview on City Of The Dead is the best interview yet where Mr lee talks about his whole career..look out for it..its a gem) .Yet when these same films ie: Rasputin, Devil Rides Out, Scars of dracula etc were released over here last month they were all totally devoid of extras. Why is this? Why is one of the greatest film icons that ever hailed from this country and his millions of british fans not given the proper respect as fans in the US?
My advice to anyone out there forget buying Region 2 (apart from Studio canals excellent release on "The Wicker Man") releases of Mr Lee's films. For a real treat for any fan please please look out for the Region 1 "City Of the Dead" as it is the original British release with an extra 2 minutes of footage not included on the crappy "Horror Hotel" Region 2 dvd. Its loaded with extras and as mentioned above a superb interview with Mr Lee plus the director. It comes to something when it takes the Americans to release the original British version grrrr.
Yet again goes to proove of the ineptitude and lazyness and disrespect given to film fans in this country.
