FT: Bastards HD DVD (Russia)

Hi

I have a spare copy of Bastards HD DVD from Russia. It's brand new & sealed. The HD DVD is full original, no bootleg etc.

I am looking for a trade with Zombie Farm HD DVD. It has to be new or mint (no scratches, marks etc.). Here some pics of the Russian movie:





IMPORTANT: Some Bastards copies don't work, I had two copies from the same seller and my own one works (tested with XA2 - European XE1 - Player). Because this copy is sealed, I can not guarantee that this one will play. I guess it should. Still, if it works it has some issues:

- the main menu doesn't work perfectly
- you will arrive after putting the disc in the player directly to the chapter menu
- You can't change the audio (there is anyway just Russian included :smile
- You can't move from chapter to chapter, otherwise it will stop

My copy and all copies I had before had the same issues.

BruceAmes told me once the LG BH200 player is better than the XA2 when it's about playing "difficult" HD DVDs, I haven't got that player. Maybe Bastards will play fine or even "more" fine with the LG, not sure. I also can't garantuee that it will play with 3gen players, I haven't got a player for to test it.

Sounds all weird, I guess it is but there is no other "better" version that exists. Your chances to get a copy that works are the best with this one!!

Thanks for joining!

Just out of curiosity, what makes the Russian HD DVDS so rare?

No shop/seller did/does ship outside of Russia. Also, the HD DVD format was never popular in Russia so the number of produced copies was very small. Further some of the Lizard HD DVDs have been released after the announcement of Toshiba.

Here what's rare or expensive:

Bastards (Paradise Group)
WAR (Lizard Cinema Trade)
Mr. Brooks (Lizard Cinema Trade)
Vedma (Lizard Cinema Trade)
Bloodrayne (Lizard Cinema Trade)
Brother/Brat (Markon/Mermah)

Bloodrayne was released at the end. The HD DVD was never available in Russian shops, this info I have directly from my contact at the Lizard Company.

Brother/Brat was included with the Russian E1-Player as a bundle. This one has a very poor PQ and AQ (data on the disc about 9 GB). My player does recorgnize it as a HD DVD.

Not very rare:

Antidur (CP Digital)
Paragraph 78 (CP Digital)
Graf Montenegro (Twister Digital Video)

UPDATE:
Bruce Ames has tested Bastards HD DVD with all his US Standalone players, IT DOES NOT WORK. Failure message: "won't play 50 HZ"

But, IT WORKS WITH THE 360 ADD ON!

Hope that helps!

I understand your passion but that movie is really terrible, what you have is way better imo.
