    The Last Laugh (Murnau 1924). One of my favorite films of the silent era.

    Just watched the new blu-ray of Kino's 4K restoration, which looks good and sharp. Excellent commentary also.

    Those Studio Canal sets covering a single director look like a great deal if you don't already have more than a couple of the films on each set. I've seen a Godard and a Melville set in addition to the Buñuel one.

    How's the quality of the transfers?

    I haven’t watched them yet, but great value as you say, if you don’t already have any of them. I had to skip the Godard box, as the only disc I didn’t have was Alphaville. I’m in two minds about the Melville box.

    “Vampyr” (Dreyer).
    The Criterion release features the best-looking print I have seen of that beaten-up film.
    It remains, as ever, more of a bad dream than a linear story, truly one of a kind.

    I like Under Fire also. But it is somewhat of a rare disc whether DVD or Blu-ray and sells for +$25 usually! Good Find!

    Screen Archives Entertainment -- I think -- is the one sponsored some of these older movies on blu-ray, usually limited to 3000 units. They are priced 29.95, plus shipping. I grabbed Under Fire off eBay for abougt 24.00 total. Lucky find.

    Likewise - I have all of the Blu-rays released by Criterion (and DVDs, for those titles yet to receive a Blu upgrade), so if I were to get the Studio Canal set it would be for the extras. Still, I'm not inclined to double-dip to that extent unless a deal too good to resist turns up.

    There is also a more comprehensive (and considerably more expensive) French Studio Canal set that touts "9 hours of extras", but from what I can determine from the few available photos of the box, it appears to contain many of the same extras that are included in the UK set:

    Blade Runner: The Final Cut. I was very happy with this version. Having only seen the theatrical cut up until this point, I was a bit skeptical about the removal of the voice overs and the addition of the grey-green filter, but in the end, I was satisfied. The online screen-caps apparently exaggerate the greenish color, because it was barely noticeable on the actual Blu-Ray. I think the removal of the voice overs and studio-imposed ending were very beneficial to the film overall.
