So, You Want Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas On 4K? Which Release Do You Choose?

Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray...
In the U.K. from Arrow and Germany from Turbine 

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray has been a boon for physical media collectors. Beyond the razor-sharp picture and excellent audio the discs are Region Free (well 99.98% of the time anyway. That means when the U.S. gets a disc the rest of the world wants - it's importable and will play on virtually every home theater setup. Likewise, when Japan or Europe gets a slick disc release we don't have, we don't have to worry about needing a Region-Free player (even though you should probably have one just in case). A great example of how cool it is to be able to import movies on 4K with ease are the U.K. and German releases of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas from Arrow Video and Turbine Medien respectively. 

Now we've already gone and done the hard part of reviewing both releases which you can read right now - 

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Arrow Limited Edition 4K UHD 

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Turbine Exclusive Mediabook 

Now, the Arrow disc has been on the market for some time with Turnine's Mediabooks coming out only in the last couple of weeks. Now the good news is, between the two releases, there's very little difference. Since it was a mutual effort between the two companies, the Dolby Vision 2160p transfers are essentially identical. Little minute differences in bitrate due to disc encoding is the only thing that separates the two. Both have what sounds to be the same exact DTS-HD MA 5.1 and DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio tracks to complete the A/V experience. 

But when we get into the bonus features we start to see the key differences between the two.

  • Audio Commentary featuring Terry Gilliam moderated by Phil Stubbs
  • Savage: Finding the American Nightmare with Ian Christie (HD 11:47)
  • The Gonzo Papers with Laila Nabulsi (HD 19:50)
  • Grim Memories and Bad Flashbacks with Benicio del Toro (HD 12:10)
  • Ignore This Terrible Drug: Art and Style (HD 30:28) 
  • Deleted Scenes w/ Optional Commentary (4 Scenes SD 11:48 total)
  • Electronic Press Kit:
    • Spotlight on Location (SD 10:35)
    • Behind the Scenes (SD 4:26)
    • Interview with Terry Gilliam (SD 2:42)
    • Interview with Johnny Depp (SD 4:58)
    • Interview with Benicio del Toro (SD 00:33)
  • Theatrical Trailers
  • TV Spots
  • Image Galleries 

Lots of great stuff to dig into there. Arrow's set is a single-disc release so all of the extras are right there on the 4K disc. Arrow's is a three-disc Mediabook, so the 4K only has the audio commentary as an extra leaving the 1080p version of the film to hold all the rest. Which is pretty damn cool that there's no real difference there. However, Turbine's set also has a third disc featuring the two-hour documentary Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. So that is a huge plus in Turbine's favor. 

Both sets have individual booklets - Arrow has a 44-page booklet with Turbine offering up a 55-page book. Now Turbine's book is in German so if you're an English-dominate individual, you will have to use Google Translate or some other app like it to read the book. It's a slightly cumbersome process but you get used to it. Both are great reads with your morning cup of coffee.

A lot of the important stuff is essentially all the same. Price + shipping (if you don't order from a domestic retailer like DiabolikDVD) is almost the same so there's not really a difference maker there. 

Where I would personally give Turbine the edge over Arrow is the four different Mediabook cover options: 

    

     


Each of those would make amazing posters. Whereas Arrow only has the one slipcover option, albeit with reversible insert art, that replicates the classic Ralph Steadman art. With that, I know not everyone likes Mediabooks. I happen to enjoy them a lot and think they make fun accent pieces on the shelf. About the size of an average DVD case, they're not so massive to take up too much room like the A24 Mediabooks, but depending on your shelves they do eat a bit of extra height space. 

So which version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray do you choose?

Short answer - either one works! Since this is currently an import-only 4K release (watch Criterion announces theirs next month) all you have to decide is which one is more attractive, fits your shelf, and then works with your finances. Arrow and Turbine both did excellent work with their discs so buy with confidence whichever version you order! 

Hope this helped - Happy Collecting!

PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE

Synopsis:

Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, this misfit love story of disconnected people trying to find one another in an antagonistic world is a comedy of discomfort and rage that turns unexpectedly sweet and pure.

When a mysterious woman comes into his life, his emotions go haywire, fluctuating between uncontrollable rage, lust and self-doubt. From the writer/director of Boogie Nights and Magnolia, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a dark, lovely and unique film experience.

The Criterion Collection Reveals February 2024 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Titles

Look forward to a 4K UHD Blu-ray upgrade of Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller; Blu-rays of Michael Roemer's Nothing But a Man and Eric Rohmer’s Tales of the Four Seasons; and Raoul Walsh's The Roaring Twenties as well as Johnnie To and action choreographer Ching Siu-tung's double-feature The Heroic Trio / Executioners on both formats.

Leading the charge on February 6 is a 4K UHD Blu-ray + Blu-ray of Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie.

McCabe & Mrs. Miller - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

McCabe & Mrs. Miller - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

This unorthodox dream western by Robert Altman may be the most radically beautiful film to come out of the New American Cinema. It stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie as two newcomers to the raw Pacific Northwest mining town of Presbyterian Church, who join forces to provide the miners with a superior kind of whorehouse experience. The appearance of representatives for a powerful mining company with interests of its own, however, threatens to be the undoing of their plans. With its fascinating, flawed characters, evocative cinematography by the great Vilmos Zsigmond, innovative overlapping dialogue, and haunting use of Leonard Cohen songs, McCabe & Mrs. Miller brilliantly deglamorized and revitalized the most American of genres.

4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • Audio commentary from 2002 featuring director Robert Altman and producer David Foster
  • Making-of documentary, featuring members of the cast and crew
  • Conversation about the film and Altman’s career between film historians Cari Beauchamp and Rick Jewell
  • Featurette from the film’s 1970 production
  • Art Directors Guild Film Society Q&A from 1999 with production designer Leon Ericksen
  • Excerpts from archival interviews with cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond
  • Gallery of stills from the set by photographer Steve Schapiro
  • Excerpts from two 1971 episodes of The Dick Cavett Show featuring Altman and film critic Pauline Kael
  • Trailer
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by novelist and critic Nathaniel Rich

Next on February 13 comes Eric Rohmer’s Tales of the Four Seasons containing four films on Blu-ray.

Eric Rohmer’s Tales of the Four Seasons - The Criterion Collection 

Eric Rohmer’s Tales of the Four Seasons - The Criterion Collection 

The seasons may change, but the follies of the heart are constant in this ineffably lovely quartet of films by Eric Rohmer, one of cinema’s most perceptive chroniclers of the pangs and perils of romance. Set throughout France, Tales of the Four Seasons is a cycle to stand alongside the director’s two earlier acclaimed film series, Six Moral Tales and Comedies and Proverbs. By turns comic and melancholic, breezy and richly philosophical, these bittersweet tales of love, longing, and the inevitable misunderstandings that shape human relationships probe the most complex of emotions with the utmost grace.

FOUR-BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 2K digital restorations, supervised by cinematographer Diane Baratier and Laurent Schérer, director Eric Rohmer’s son, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks
  • New interview program recorded at Rohmer’s house in Tulle, France, featuring Baratier, producer Françoise Etchegaray, sound engineer Pascal Ribier, and editor Mary Stephen
  • Excerpts of radio interviews with Rohmer conducted by film critics Michel Ciment and Serge Daney
  • Documentary from 2005 on the making of A Tale of Summer, by Etchegaray and Jean-André Fieschi
  • Two short films directed by Rohmer: A Farmer in Montfaucon (1968) and The Kreutzer Sonata (1956)
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translations
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Imogen Sara Smith

    New cover by Polly Dedman

On February 20, Michael Roemer's Nothing But a Man will arrive on Blu-ray.

Nothing But a Man - The Criterion Collection 

Nothing But a Man - The Criterion Collection 

Michael Roemer’s groundbreaking first feature, sensitively shot by his close collaborator Robert M. Young, is a still-resonant expression of humanity in the face of virulent prejudice. Made at the height of the civil rights movement, Nothing but a Man reveals the toll of systemic racism through its honest portrait of a southern Black railroad worker (Ivan Dixon) confronting the daily challenges of discrimination and economic precarity, as he attempts to settle down with his new wife (jazz great Abbey Lincoln) and track down his father (Julius Harris). Admired by Malcolm X and now recognized as a landmark of American cinema, this tender film grounds its social critique in characters of unforgettable complexity and truth.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New, restored 4K digital master, approved by director Michael Roemer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • An Introduction to Michael Roemer, a new interview program featuring Roemer
  • Conversation from 2004 between Roemer and coproducer and cinematographer Robert M. Young
  • Program featuring archival interviews with actors Ivan Dixon, Abbey Lincoln, and Julius Harris
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Gene Seymour

    New cover by Katya Mezhibovskaya

Also on February 20, Johnnie To and action choreographer Ching Siu-tung's The Heroic Trio / Executioners will be available on 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray.

The Heroic Trio / Executioners - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

The Heroic Trio / Executioners - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

The star power of cinema icons Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, and Michelle Yeoh fuels these gloriously unrestrained action joyrides from auteur Johnnie To and action choreographer Ching Siu-tung. The Heroic Trio and its sequel, Executioners, follow a new kind of justice league: a team of blade-throwing, shotgun-toting, kung fu–fighting heroines who join forces to battle evildoers in a dystopian, noirish city. Blending dazzling martial-arts mayhem with exhilarating blasts of comic-book lunacy, these beloved superhero movies reimagine the genre through the giddy genius of the Hong Kong film industry at its height.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • 4K digital restorations of The Heroic Trio and Executioners, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks
  • In the 4K UHD edition: One 4K UHD disc of the films and two Blu-rays with the films and special features
  • Alternate 5.1 surround Cantonese and English-dubbed soundtracks
  • New interview with actor Anthony Wong
  • New interview with film critic Samm Deighan (cohost of the podcast Twitch of the Death Nerve)
  • Trailers
  • New English subtitle translations
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Beatrice Loayza

    New cover by Alice X. Zhang

And closing the month on February 27 is Raoul Walsh's The Roaring Twenties arriving on 4K UHD Blu-ray. A Blu-ray edition will be also be available.

The Roaring Twenties - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

The Roaring Twenties - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

Ripped from the headlines of the turbulent era between the Great War and the Great Depression, this dynamic, nostalgia-tinged crime drama balances tommy-gun action with epic historical sweep. Legends James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart star as army buddies whose fortunes rise and fall as their fates intersect, first in a foxhole on the front lines of World War I, then in Manhattan’s Prohibition-era underworld. Directed by Hollywood master Raoul Walsh, and based on a story by prolific journalist turned screenwriter and producer Mark Hellinger, The Roaring Twenties brought to a close the celebrated Warner Bros. gangster cycle of the 1930s, and it remains one of the greatest and most influential crime films of all time.

4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • Audio commentary with film historian Lincoln Hurst
  • New interview with critic Gary Giddins
  • Excerpt from a 1973 interview with director Raoul Walsh
  • Trailer
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Mark Asch

    Avatar is also picking up a new Blu-ray 3D as well -

     

    Normally at this point we'd be going into some silly little comment about how long it's taken certain films of James Cameron's back catalog to come to Blu-ray and 4K - but there's a TON to get through here. Not only are we finally getting the old favorites but we're getting new collectors editions of both Avatar films. Rather than blither on further - lets get to it! 

    Sadly all of these aren't coming out at the same clip, so while our wallets get a breather, we do have to wait for three of them into 2024

    Gareth Edwards' The Creator Arrives on 4K UHD and Blu-ray on December 12
