August’s Collector’s Edition Blu-ray

Fopp's Picks

With collector’s edition releases for Mad Max, Crimes of the Future and more, August is shaping up to be a great month for film collectors. Here’s our picks for August.

Mad Max – Cine Edition

release date: 21st August 2023 


Mel Gibson proved he was a name to be reckoned with in the revved-up, trendsetting Mad Max with filmmaker George Miller. Gibson portrays Max Rockatansky, the fearless, leather-suited cop waging war with kill-crazy bikers who targeted his family. It’s a war that must be seen to be believed, a road-scorching, neo-punk, take-no-prisoners combat set in a postapocalyptic Australia. In the end, a lone man travels a ribbon of highway now free of the unroadworthy.

Weird Science – Limited Edition

release date: 21st August 2023 


If you can’t get a date… make one! After proving himself the king of heartfelt teen flicks with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, writer-director John Hughes infused the genre with a hefty dose of wacked-out sci-fi comedy in Weird Science, a film where every teenage boy’s wildest fantasies come to life. 

Perennially picked-on high school nerds Gary (Anthony Michael Hall, Sixteen Candles) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) are sick of their status at the bottom of the social food chain. Using Wyatt’s computer, the two hatch a plan to create their dream woman – and following a massive power surge, that woman unexpectedly appears in the form of Lisa (Kelly LeBrock). Gorgeous, intelligent, and blessed with limitless magic powers, Lisa makes the boys’ dreams come true… but what about Wyatt’s gun-toting psycho older brother Chet (Bill Paxton), and the two bullies (Robert Downey Jr and Vamp’s Robert Rusler) determined to put them back in their place?

Inspired by EC Comics and boosted by a killer soundtrack (including the classic title theme by Oingo Boingo), Weird Science has never looked better than in this new 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray edition, including an extended version of the film and hours of bonus content.

Time Bandits – Limited Edition

release date: 28th August 2023 


The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs. Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin’s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of Good (Ralph Richardson) and Evil (David Warner)?

This is a rare example of an independent British film taking on American blockbusters. Now, it’s a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

Fight Back to School Trilogy – Deluxe Collector’s Edition

release date: 21st August 2023 


Before he wowed the world with Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, Stephen Chow was Hong Kong’s best kept – and funniest – secret, and the Fight Back to School trilogy sees him at his hilarious best.
Here he’s Star Chow, the toughest cop on the force… until some over-zealous police-work takes his career in a different direction: he’s sent under-cover at a school. There he finds there are worse things than battling triads, like homework, maths tests and falling in love with your teacher.
And once he’s solved that case, he’s back undercover in the sequels, demonstrating that he should have paid more attention in his lessons. This is the first time all three films have been released together on blu-ray, and 88 Films are thrilled to present the world premier of this classic trilogy of Cantonese comedy.
