Woo hoo! Got my german release blu-ray disc. I love the features, but most of all I love the picture quality. Also when you remove the cover from the case, you can actually turn it around to have a neutral one without all the barcoades and FSK (age) ratings. For those of you who want to know, this is how the package looked when opened:



Thanks for posting. I'm curious to know how many/which deleted scenes are included?

I would guess it's highly unlikely the German pressing (or any other) differs in content from the US version, at least when it comes to things produced by the filmmakers themselves, such as deleted scenes.

If there were any unique international features, it would usually be things like extra commentary tracks recorded by individuals who didn't work on the film (e.g. film scholars, music experts, etc.), or other documentary features produced outside of the actual film production, etc.

Can you flip that art around so we can see what the version without the ratings logos looks like? That's a nice touch, as the main drawback to some European pressings is the ugly ratings logos.

The content is the same with the obvious addition of the German audio track. All deleted scenes, making ofs etc are on there.

Hey Jude, the link below shows the front.

Thanks. I was actually wondering if you could flip the reversible art around (the version without the ratings logos; the version we can partially see under the disc in your picture) so we can get an unhindered view of that. Smiley

The blu-ray came out here yesterday in Australia. We got a switchable cover! Sadly we have those horrid rating logos but very cool none the less.

Just behind Furious 7 and 007 Spectre, "One Kind of Love" from Love and Mercy is predicted to be in the running for Best Original Song according to a prediction by AwardsCircuit.com.

I haven't heard the other contenders, but "One Kind of Love" is truly a standout on No Pier Pressure - has beautiful harmonies, great instrumental track. And it fits like a glove in the theme of the movie Love and Mercy. I think it has a good shot at the win.

I'm becoming more convinced to go against my initial assumption and say that there is a good possibility that the song will get a nod. Of course now that I say that, it won't!

The Mrs. and I watched the film with the commentary. Wow. It's like watching the movie for the first time all over again. Without spoiling it for those who haven't heard the commentary yet, I need to say this: Bill Pohlad explains why he had Carol Kaye ask about the two different bass lines. It's just....wow.

I'd love to shove that in Carol's defamatory face.

It was a good, if brief, appearance on the Tonight Show. Dano was plugging an upcoming movie, as well as the DVD release of Love and Mercy. Jimmy Fallon repeated, several times, that there was "Oscar buzz" surrounding Dano's portrayal of Brian.

I must be the only person that was not completely blown away by the film. Watched the dvd last week, the 60's stuff worked much better for me than the 80's stuff. If I knew nothing about Brian before seeing this film, I would think he was not really making music during the Landy years. Found it hard to connect with that portrayal of Brian. Recognized a lot of things he was saying as quotes from interviews - some from the IJWMFTT doc. I did enjoy seeing 'Brian' working with the Wrecking Crew, and the Beach Boys. Still wish we would get a very comprehensive BB's documentary, ala Beatles Anthology.

On Sunday I was talking with some friends, and one of them mentioned having seen the film, gotten interested interested in Brian's story and read the "autobiography". She asked me why the film and the "autobiography" were so different from each other, which I was happy to clear up. She finds that Murry came off much better in the film than in the book.

Paul Dano has been busy in 2015. Not only does he feature in the visually stunning film Youth, he also co-stars in the current BBC production of War and Peace.

Both are essential viewing, in my opinion...  Okay, all three. Grin

U.S. iTunes has it for a $1 dollar rental $7.99 purchase (both HD). If you are on the fence and never got to see it, do yourself a favor and check it out for the $1. It's one of the best films I saw in 2015 and a truly loving tribute to an American great.

Also, Paul Dano did a sit down interview with the Los Angeles Times today:

He's up for the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe next Sunday and (hopefully) same for the Academy Awards(!)

Dano is amazing in War & Peace, which just finished airing in the UK this evening. If it ever come to the States, folks, do not miss it!
