Agree with you, i was able to grab what i wanted through Diabolik so iam not complaining !

Btw for Codered seems the guy prefers to sell them directly on eBay at crazy prices (to shortcut scalpers ?)!

And then Bill stopped the ebay International shipping, probably after I called him out on the prices on the blu-ray forum.  ;D

$70 + $30 shipping and customs for Savage Streets??

It would seem that Odeon are now releasing it as well here. There's a version listed on their site with a BD catalogue number now alongside the DVD and an info box next to it with a release date of June 15th.

Got the BD from Screen Archives a few days ago and watched it.  The film has never looked better, no question.  It's not a reference BD though, the source used has some issues ( softness, vertical lines/ crease that pop up several times )  while large sections look markedly better.  Colors are very nice, Scorpion did some color correction that may not be part of Odeon's presentation.  A trailer ( new to me and nice ) & a short Judy Geeson interview where she dishes on the film for a few minutes and then covers ( briefly ) several other of her 60's/70's films.  Not terribly substantial but glad to have it on there.  If you are a fan of the film, the BD is worth it, if you're curious, the DVD might get you by.

I'm hoping someone will post some comparisons between the BD and the DVD.
I can't afford the $42.00Ca price for the BD so I ordered the DVD.
The DVD is being shipped but now I'm wondering if I should sell it when it comes and wait for the Odeon as I love this film.

I love this film. About 20 years ago, I owned an original Dutch Video For Pleasure VHS and even created my own DVD from it before I parted with it.

I bought the DVD a while back just in case the Blu Ray didn't make it. I now have the Blu Ray coming in shortly. I'll compare and report back after I've had a look.

Hmm, I've had a quick look at both the DVD and Blu Ray on a 50" Sony television and I can't really tell the difference! The Blu ray's menus are exactly the same as the DVD. No pop-ups or anything fancy. This is a favorite of mine so I'm very happy to have it but I can't say the Blu ray is any vast improvement over the DVD.

Thanks Scott!
I suspected as much since this is such an obscure movie I knew a high resolution wouldn't be found.
Cheers!

Got both discs as well as a Pana 50" too and can tell the blu is much better ! still a scratchy print but definitively 1080p ! :)  dvd can't compete with blu .

Btw for non us people i'll recommend waiting for the Uk disc !

I picked up the blu of this on Saturday and although haven't watched it all the way through, found the picture underwhelming from the pieces I saw. Usually Scorpion do a pretty bang up job, but feel a bit disappointed with this.

The source sucks, not much they could really do with it.  This is why I'd say the DVD is a reasonable option for most people.   I have the BD but if I had seen it before I bought it,  I'd have saved some $$ and bought the DVD.

The Odeon BD is a steal at £8.99 in HMV! Dying to watch it but prob won't get a chance for a little while as i'm off out of town tomorrow. I'll hopefully be able to give it a flick through before.

Curious if it's from the same iffy source as Scorpion's with the vertical lines running through people's faces.
