Good News for Bluray Fans

The Good The Bad The Weird Bluray

Popped into Synnara records this afternoon and discovered that CJ Entertainment have released a bluray edition of 좋은놈 나쁜놈 이상한놈 (The Good The Bad The Weird). This quirky self described "oriental western" directed by 김지운 (Kim Jee-woon) and starring 송강호 (Song Kang-ho), 이병헌 (Lee Byung-hun) and 정우선 (Jung Woo-sung) is well worth a watch. It's not a perfect film, but it is stylishly directed and very enjoyable. I picked up my copy for 33,000 won, though I'm sure if you look around you could find it for a few thousand less. Hopefully this signals the release of a few more Korean bluray titles, my fingers are crossed for a "Mother" bluray disc...

Do you know if that movie has been released in the US yet, or on a format that I could view here in the states? I saw it in the theatres while I was living in Korea, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
