Get Back – a look at the packaging
As you know, the US copies of the Blu-ray of the Get Back series was recalled because of an audio problem, but a few copies slipped through to the customers. Here’s what it looks like.
As you can see, it looks a lot nicer than the bootleg Blu-rays we have seen. The photo cards are limited edition, though – we guess a regular edition will follow. One thing that the booleg Blu-rays have, but which is lacking here, are bonus features. We’ve seen a couple of the bootleg Blu-rays, and they contain bonus material like the official trailer, Peter Jackson’s “sneek peak”, the “60 minutes” segment about the series, the “60 minutes overtime” online content, a Get Back interview with Peter Jackson from “Variety’s Doc Dreams”, “The Beatles, Get Back and London: On the trail of a timeless story”, promos (music videos) like “Get Back”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “One After 909”, “Let It Be” and “The Long and Winding Road”. All in full length and uninterrupted, which wasn’t the case in the documentary series – at least the latter two.
Now, some of this material is readily available online, but you’ll never know if they’ll be there forever.
The silent video is almost deafening, almost emphasising the “audio problem”. The marked calendar, pretending that 31 January was never part of the sessions, is also “interesting”. If the bootleggers do take advantage of the indefinite delay, it will be sad if “Two Of Us” will still not be included as part of the bonus material. Meanwhile, the silence still continues about the 1970 film and a CD release of the rooftop concert where the music has definitely taken priority.
I chose to not narrate anything and just muted the ambient sounds in the house, ie. the humidifier, the dog, the kitchen noise. No one needs me saying, “now you’re looking at the first disc” etc. It’s pretty straightforward. It was just a rough video I made in a hurry for a forum I read.I had no idea a blog would pick it up. Holding a phone cam with one hand while trying to open and move flaps with the one free hand is trickier than it looks, thus a couple of fades I made near the end rather than you having to wait seven seconds for to do this one-handed 😉
To be honest, that looks a whole lot better than the promo picture seemed to suggest!
Any OFFICIAL notice about all SUBTITLES?
According to Amazon UK, the European version has Subtitles in English, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Spanish. Don’t know who the Latin is for, doctors?
Latin is portuguese or spanish? LOL…….
As it’s still “temporarily out of stock”, does it really matter? Maybe “Latin” was a misspelling of “Italian”. There are many more European languages. I don’t think Japanese is one of them.
“Latin” probably means Spanish from Latin America, as opposed to Spanish from Spain
How come those extras ie. the pictures weren’t inside the DVD pack?
