Snowblind: Grindhouse Western made in Germany

Maybe I should install some saloon doors in here. After another trailer for the Eastern-meets-Western adventure The Warrior’s Way, here’s something else for you Western fans out there. The post-apocalyptic western Snowblind was created by a group of independent German producers on their own budget and free time. Since my weekend was pretty short, I’ll just embedd the trailer and tell you that the whole film is available for free on YouTube. Check out the official website for the HD and 3D (soon) version.

Warner will be Good, Bad, Weird and Blu in Japan

Looks like once again Japan will get the biggest and sweetest piece of the Blu-ray disc release cake.
While Kim Ji-Woon’s oriental western The Good, The Bad and the Weird has already been released on Blu-ray Disc in several countries, all these releases have some kind of small drawback. The British release by Icon Home Entertainment offers the International version (and the Korean ending as an bonus feature) but suffers from several small cuts that were made because of animal cruelty (falling horses) during the showdown.
The Korean release (looking great in the digipak and sleeve) is fully uncut in this department but only includes the shorter International cut (just like the French release), a fact that has only been announced a few days before the release.
Now Warner Japan announced to bring a release that includes the Korean and International cut (both with falling horses) and English subtitles on February 10, 2010. The only setback could be the price of currently 5,905 Yen (~45 € or 66 US$) without shipping

The Good, The Bad and the Weird: Korean Blu-ray Disc

YesAsia has listed the first “real” picture of the upcoming (September 17th or 30th, depending on the retailer) Korean Blu-ray Disc release of Kim Ji-Woon’s oriental western The Good, The Bad and the Weird:

Looks quite good, just as expected from a Korean release. But I’m a bit worried about the part in the article description that says that the Blu-ray Disc will include the shorter international cut while the Korean DVD Special Edition released back in March included both cuts.
I’ve contacted the K2DVD support about this, they seem to be pretty reliable when it comes to things like this.
Update: K2DD cofirmed that the Blu-ray Disc release will only include the International cut and will b delayed to September 24th.
