Death Hunt was really enjoyable, with Bronson, Lee Marvin and Carl Weathers. The region 1 disc I watched is decent enough, shame theres no extras on it apart from a trailer, but it was cheap.
I thought it was an excellent transfer, and you're right, it is cheap; the irony is, this is a Fox title licensed out to AB. If Fox themselves had produced it as a barebones disc, it probably would have been roughly half the current price.

Great a Charles Bronson thread,

I have to say he is one of my favourite actors of all time, Watched and own most of the films mentioned in the thread.

Fave's r

Deathwish 2
The Mechanic
Deathwish
Murphys law
deathwish 4

Hoping that Telefon and the Valachi papers finally get a dvd release. Haven't seen these before.
Lets keep this thread going guys, Bronson was a true legend!

The previous cuts that have been waived are a few shots of nudity following the first rape scene i think. The rape remains cut tho, even though it can be seen uncut on FX289 whenever they broadcast it.

Anyone know the best version of Chato's Land to pick up? The r1 seems to be the PG cut and the UK version has some horse trips removed.

There's a splendid Japanese version of Valachi Papers which cost me an arm and a leg to import.
They also do Adieu Amie - I ordered it because it said original language, but should have stopped and thought that it was made in France. No English track - oh well, cover art is incredible at least.

Great news today - St Ives is going to be released in May. Probably my favourite of his 70's movies after Hard Times

Be great to see "The Valachi Papers" again. A very intelligent and entertaining movie which used to be on TV all the time but hasn't surfaced for a while.

great news about St Ives.

Regarding Deathwish 2 i purchased a double disc with Deathwish from Austrailia. Totally uncut like the version show on FX channel.
Couldn't believe the cuts, it makes the story even better after seeing them.

Where exactly did you get The Valachi Papers? And may be a stupid question but is it any good?

Another film i enjoyed was Cold Sweat, if you get a decent copy of it, check it out.

I got someone out in Japan to send it to me.
But I'm sure HMV Japan or CDjapan could get it for you.

Valachi Papers is great. Like a down to earth Godfather without all the grandstanding. Bronson totally carries the film, but not with his usual 70's persona - he is much more vunerable in this one. Great sense of time and place too.

Cold Sweat is a meaty Euro-thriller I admire greatly, but it is impossible to get a decent version of it. I just wish these crappy companies like laserlight would stop these releases which make a mockery of the DVD format. Their versions of Lola/Twinky, Coboblanco and Valdez are disgusting.

But its going to be a great year for Bronson fans, I can feel it. My personal wish has come true in St Ives getting a release - next up, The Stone Killer hopefully

I hope your right, about it being a good year for Bronson fans, and i totally agree your point regards the dvd transfers from laserlight etc, just shocking.
Still i'm greatfull just to have the films but decent copies would be nice.

On the case to get the Valachi papers!

Bronson

No probs,
But if you feel like spending a bit less, DVDSoon have a good selection of Bronson at around the fiver mark. I've recently got This Property Is Condemned and Chatos Land from them. And will get Assassination and X-15 by the end of the month.
Not forgetting the Charles Bronson Action pack - Murphys Law, Kinjite, Messenger of Death and 10 to Midnight for around the 18 quid mark.

Not his four best by any means, but it helps to swipe them up all in one go.

I picked up the Bronson set from DVDSoon for about 12 quid. great value for 4 films, even if kinjite was a bit of a duffer.

That's a good price for three good films and one unfortunate one. I'm very fond indeed of "Ten To Midnight", as I keep saying - one of J. Lee Thompson's best films in fact - and I love the creative insults that the girl comes out with in "Murphy's Law".

The R1 is cut too, it is missing some rape footage and non-anamorphic.

Get the French DVD "Les collines de la terreur" has the film uncut and anamorphic
