Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001). Region 1 Korean blu-ray release. Mine all mine.
I can't explain the love or obsession I have with the movie "Brotherhood of the Wolf". I've argued with Dave about it many times on our podcast. He hates it. I LOVE it. I've been hoping for a blu-ray release of Brotherhood for a long, long time, and it just looks like it's never going to happen in the US. I started sleuthing around in the interwebz, and discovered that their is a Region 1 blu-ray release from China, so I ordered that sucker up, and it is now living with me and I'm so happy to have a HD version of the film.
Brotherhood of the Wolf came out in 2001, and luckily a local independent movie theater was showing it. I think I went back with different friends at least three times during it's run at that theater so show people how amazing it was. It's like someone threw every genre of movie at the wall, and whatever stuck was what was put into the film. It's a French historical-monster film. But its more than that; it' a monster-kung fu-period-who dunnit-philosophical-action flick. It's got monsters. It's got a bone sword. It's got magic potions and a guy that looks like David Lee Roth and it's bat-shit insane. Totally. It's absolutely bananas. Which is why I love it so much. It's even got a giant puppet in it courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
And the coats. Did I mention the coats yet?
