New Japanese Blu-ray set

Postby Peter Barton » Sun May 17, 2015 3:48 am

I was browsing Amazon Japan earlier to see if there was anything released for Fury Road, and came across this. ... trdvd01-22

What I found interesting (apart from Fury Road being translated into Anger of Death Road), was the contents list - translation pasted below. There are TV versions listed for all films, I'm curious if the Mad Max 2 version will be a release of the "Lost Version", I'm even more curious about the 1982 TV version for Mad Max. It could turn out that they're just different voice dubbings (some of the text seems to be implying that), or maybe it has Rollin Into The Night over the end credits or something. It is released next month, I've pre-ordered one, will let you all know what it contains when it arrives.

Wouldn't it be amazing if we had an official "Lost Version" release? Keeping my fingers crossed.

New japanese dub appeal only to japanese people -- and true japanese movie fans probably don't give a shit about the dubbed versions as they would watch them in original language.
I don't see the point for us westerners in this new set. It's not like they included deleted scenes from MM

I might take a chance on this and just order it INCASE it has The Lost version.
I have 3 tape versions of that thing, but kept missing that bootleg dvd that was kicking round facebook about 10 years ago.

It appears this is already on sale in Japan, as there seems to be some new reviews on the Amazon page. However they are of course in Japanese, so I've put a couple through Google Translate, and below is an example of what I got:

The ginger not Speaking of topic-making is poor ... not Well ginger for capacity as facilitator's "bird Miki" is not enough, or it is not on the side to produce a movie about this?

So I guess we'll just wait to hear Peter's opinion!

I think this has been posted elsewhere, but the various "versions" just appear to be the audio dubs.

The Mad Max disc has the US dubbed English or the Australian English, plus various foreign language tracks, and subtitle tracks. The only extra is a trailer.

The Mad Max 2 disc again has various foreign language / subtitle tracks, I'd need to run a comparison against the US discs to tell you what's different here, but it is likely just some extra Japanese tracks. It has the Leonard Maltin intro (but no "Chase Continues"?), and a trailer.

Haven't put Thunderdome in yet, but I expect much of the same. Thunderdome has always had the least release variations of any of the films, so I honestly don't expect to see anything new.

There were obviously the photos (postcard size) as well, I haven't opened those up yet, but will post a pic when I do. I'd only be looking at getting the set if you are a completist, there's unfortunately not any new material to be had here that I could find.
