Beefarino Get! Or: Coming Attractions

I guess there was a mild white earthquake while some person was laying out text for this DVD cover artwork. Check out the original poster for a clue as to what’s what.

So, yeah. I needed to snag a film for a blogathon and as I’m on a budget these days (well, I’m always on a budget!), I ended up picking us a little addition to the library that, along with a bunch of other films I own just so happen to be from South Korea. Everyone needs an odd obsession or three that’s legal yet somewhat comical and one of mine is legal variants of films that come from other countries. I need to do a post on this at some point I guess.

Yes, the subtitles are optional. I like the clean animated menu design here (which makes me wonder if the US release uses the same one).

As you can see, the film runs fine (on a Blu-Ray, a PS4, PS3 and standard DVD player from my quick tests). Quality-wise, it’s acceptable, but definitely not anything close to a Criterion Collection remaster.And before you ask “How’s the film?” I’ll tell yoy now that you’ll have to wait with bated buffalo breath for my verdict until next month’s installment of (shameless plug time:) Video Store Action Heroes to find out.

Video Store Action Heroes - Banner 9 final

So shameless… yet so pluggy.

  1. Ha, I’m just now finding this…no wonder I didn’t know what film you’d chosen for the blogathon! I guess I should actually OPEN these blog site e-mails I get…I might learn something! And speaking of which: I never knew the word ‘earthquake’ had so many vowels in it…

    • The person who did that text boo-boo maybe sneezed, snoozed or was otherwise distracted, but I’ve seen Asian discs that mangle the language worse. I may even have a few (which means I need to do an article on those one day).
