Ordered: Fistful of Dollars
For a few Dollars More

Is the Italian BD of TGTBATU any good?

Thanks Sam :)
The longer version of Dollars More will be interesting :)
I wonder how Fistful of Dollars looks though, as the German DVDs I had were based on superior restorations at the time (Paramount) rather than MGM.

i think Fistful uses the italian BD transfer which is excellent.

You don't own the older BD set? My understanding was that the 30th Anniversary doesn't really add anything worthwhile, and the artwork is worse.

Artwork on a lot of mainstream BD's is really starting to irritate me. It seem all the good designs have been used in the earlier DVD editions and standard BD's, and they have to use worse and worse new artworks for new BD's...

I had a look and it looks excellent :) The title card at the start of the movie is in German rather than English, must be a different print from the one used for the earlier German DVDs.
The extras seem to be SD and are in PAL format.
