    Re: The Definitive Russ Meyer thread (eventual nudity...hopefully)

    The booklet is a hundred pages long, with poster art for 13 of the films (all color; a couple of them are the video covers) [p. 4-16], "Russ Meyer - I Was Glad To Do It" by David K. Frasier (2011) [p. 17-38], "The Immoral Mr. Teas - Lust, Greed, and Loss: An Interview With R.M. (Frasier 1990/2011) [p. 44-78], "Lorna - Meyer Does Drive-In Steinbeck: An Interview With R.M. (Frasier 1990), [p. 79-95]. "In Memoriam R.M. 2002-2004" [p. 97-99]. The font's pretty large, but there IS a lot of text, with smaller pics throughout and a few pages of big photos several times. Most all of the pics are in b/w. It's softcover with the same cover art as the box set. I haven't read any of the texts yet, but it seems like a very nice thing.
    The DVDs don't come in amarays. I have no idea how this is called, but it's like "plastic pages" that you can turn with a DVD on each "page", so it's about 1/3 the size of the older set. It's a cool box with a few newly added extras. I haven't checked out "Europe In The Raw" yet, but for newcomers I'd definitely recommend this new edition over the older one (assuming the transfers are identical). I got it for €30 incl. s&h (to Germany) from amazon UK.

    Appreciate the info M. I would've preferred a separate case for each dvd like the previous set but i'm fine with this. My set is on the way.

    I'm assuming that as these are the same transfers as the previous Arrow editions, they'll still have that awful motion blur for those of us in the US watching them in NTSC? I always assumed that this was the result of old NTSC masters being poorly transferred to PAL for the UK discs, and then being transferred back to NTSC by our US all-region DVD players. This never marred any new interviews in the extras, just the films themselves, which was a shame.

    I have a Vizio blu-ray that plays PAL R0 stuff out da box, and the one disc in the original set I spot-checked (COMMON LAW CABIN) fared much better than it did on my Philips dvd player.

    Yeah, I never really had a problem with that motion issue, THANK GOD. I am usually psychotically anal about crap like that.

    Haven't watched them on my new, player yet, though. Uh oh.

    Bought the new 2011 edition with the book from Ebay for around $45 shipped, should be here any day now.
    Hoping with the new "page trays" it comes in perfect shape... Haven't seen to much of Meyer's work's before hand so this should be a real treat.
    Keeping my fingers crossed on this awesome collection!

    So having had the original R2 boxset for a couple of years and still not having watched most of them, I'm having a Russ Meyer marathon - all 22 of his films (including bootlegs of Europe In The Raw, Fanny Hill and The Seven Minutes) over two weeks, in chronological order! Got up to Mudhoney before I had to have a break yesterday, but am having a fucking ball!

    Could someone suggest a good place to get THE SEVEN MINUTES? I have a VHS TV broadcast that isn't cutting it.

    Never had the pleasure(?) of seeing SEVEN MINUTES, but Fox Movie Channel broadcasts seem to be the best option.

    Re: The Definitive Russ Meyer thread (eventual nudity...hopefully)

    Been reading through this thread. Being a longtime Meyer fan, it's nice to see such enthusiasm for his films. I enjoy all of his films including the lesser ones (with the exception of FANNY HILL, which is next to impossible to sit through). My personal faves are VIXEN, BVD, FASTER PUSSYCAT and CHERRY, HARRY AND RAQUEL. I also think that FINDERS KEEPERS, LOVER WEEPERS is highly underrated. I like that one a lot and it actually reminds me of some of Tarantino's stuff for some reason. I'm glad to own all of the Arrow discs but wish they were in better quality. Hate to admit that my VHS tapes actually look slightly better than the DVDs. It would be really great if all of his movies were remastered and released on Blu-Ray with nice extras. Despite being low-budget, RM's films showcase excellent photography and I can only imagine how great they would look with new HD transfers. Hopefully that will happen in the near future if his catalog can be licensed to another company (even if just for a brief time like they were for the Image laserdiscs back in the late 90's).

    Also, I don't know if anyone has noticed yet, but RM Films recently put out a new DVD collection called "Vintage Bodies" which includes EROTICA and HEAVENLY BODIES as well as two rare shorts. Has anyone had the chance to check it out yet and see how it is? If I can just get my hands on that and EUROPE IN THE RAW then my Russ Meyer collection will be complete unless more footage from some of the various projects he was working on since the early 80's should happen to surface (although I highly doubt we'll ever see anything from the Melissa Mounds film).

    Woah, thanks for the heads up! May have to get this despite the hefty price tag and not wanting to fill the coffers of the shysters currently occupying space at RM Films...

    The Seven Minutes is currently available to license to UK DVD labels via Hollywood Classics - no-one stepping up yet though! http://hollywoodclassics.com/Movie/Seven_Minutes_the

    I keep hoping that ol' Russ' classics would make it to BR ( imagine seeing those huge tits & colorful costumes on HD ) but with those fucks who own RM Films refusing to move their fat ass or giving any other company the original negatives, i'm afraid thats not gonna happen anytime soon.

    Yes, thanks for the tip. I could never bring myself to pull the trigger on EUROPE IN THE RAW because of the price-to-boredom ratio, but I have wanted to see HEAVENLY BODIES for ages so I purchased that new set just now. Not expecting much, but...
