Viewing Notes

My Battle Royale (2000) blu-ray set, courtesy of Arrow Films, finally arrived a couple of days ago from Amazon UK. Cannot emphasize what an amazing Limited Edition set this is. Even more amazing was the minimal price to obtain. My edition is #73 of 10,000, the lowest number I’ve seen among my friends. Anyways, been looking for an excuse to watch one of my favorite films again. And, man, does it ever look great on blu-ray. No need to go into film details as I’m sure you’ve already seen it. Right?!
