Default David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers - Jan 17th (Fr)



Good news to see another Cronenberg opus about to hit :iconbluraypng:. This time it is Dead Ringers from 1988 with Jeremy Irons playing a dual role as twin gynecologists...

I hope it doesn't have forced subs.

Just ordered this one today from Amazon France, added the Sofia Coppola box (4 movies) to the same order as it was nicely priced and I don't have 3 out of 4 of those on BD yet... Hoping that Dead Ringers is a very good release... Will report when I get it.

I look forward to reading your report on this :iconbluraypng: when it arrives. I have so many :iconbluraypng:s to get through at the moment that I have had to rein in my spending for a while!

Yeah, I have quite much buffer to watch also. I got the shipping notice for this package already and I used the faster shipping option since the price difference was quite small. Should be able to receive it before the weekend then!

Sounds like a result to me. Let us know what you think of the disc when you get a chance please.

I got the disc this morning. No time to post all details yet as it's a busy week at work but I'll post more this upcoming weekend. I confirmed a couple of things.

- Region B locked BD50
- English and French DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio tracks, French subs (still to confirm if forced)
- 1080i50 encoded (it's a pity)
- Looks pretty great based on my sampling so far

My standalone players are all region A so couldn't play this yet on those and my new PC has no Blu-ray playback SW now that would show the menu and reveal if subs are forced... I'm using only Media Player Classic Home Cinema now on PC and that doesn't really reveal if subs are forced.

Some teaser pics:

1080i/50 = 4% PAL speed up. How does that happen in 2012?
