Nice, Breath, you'll enjoy it. My one and only minor gripe, is that neither version of 1941 has the original mono film mix, nor does it have a 5.1 iso score, as the R1 DVD has. That being said, it's cheap at twice the price. ALWAYS, especially, looks gorgeous.

Alien: Quadrilogy seems like a perfect set with everything one could ever want. Both versions of all 4 films, extras for all and even the old LaserDisc extras? Damn.

T1 seems good, T2 seems awesome, Jaws has a perfect documentary, the Indiana Jones bonus disc was a little bit meh.

The biggest drawback is the censored Temple of Doom. It's not a big deal, but there's just absolutely no reason for it!

Yup, what I've seen so far of these has really good picture quality, I won't invest into a bluray player for a few more years, I have more important things to waste my cash on. I watch these on my 15.6" laptop screen with an external DVD player that came with it anyway, and PowerDVD's upscaling is pretty good.

 

Also, Bluray cases and covers are usually ugly as hell.

A few more years? Probably won’t be any physical format by then!

And there will probably be a fair window where people won't be interested anymore, prices will fall because everyone will want to get rid of their stock, before they rise again when it becomes retro. I'll have plenty of time then to figure out which release fucked up all the colours just because and which hasn't.

If you buy used DVDs (in excellent condition) i have a few John Williams scored films that I'll eventually sell.

Blu rays are $5. How much cheaper can they get?

If you buy Mill Creek releases, yes.

if you buy Criterion, Arrow, Shout, Warner Archive, Twilight Time, Eureka etc., no they aren't!

Usual price around here is about €8, once they're discounted. I just ordered a bunch of Blu-rays for €5 from Amazon, but that was a special offer when you picked up ten from a rather small selection of titles.

Bought Images on Blu-ray, which is technically the only way to see it (currently), since not even Netflix has it on DVD. Hate when that happens. Hopefully it's good!

I wouldn't call it a safe blind-buy, but I hope you like it!

 

In the extras, there is

An appreciation by musician and author Stephen Thrower

 

Since he's a musician, let us know if he mentions Williams.

 

Also, prepare yourself for a very grainy film at times!

Not all people like this, but I love it.

I have no problem with grain, as long as it's what the filmmakers wanted and inherent in the original photography.

2001 is being released this year in a new restoration..

I guess you didn't know?

although, judging from the trailer it might have been tealed-yellowed, so I'll stick to my older release too if that's the case!

It didn't need to be restored. Somehow, as if by magic, the film is perfectly preserved. 

yeah, i guess I should have said "remastered"?

anyway the new bluray comes from a new 4K scan I think...

It is too.

Both a  UHD release and a bluray release will be from the new scan.

Well, thanks for the info, but I'll stick to my current Blu-ray version. It looks incredible. Only 4K can improve on it.

Is that BR, or is that BR2049?

If it's the original, it would be nice to know what you think, coming to the table almost 36 years later.

The original (Final Cut). I have seen maybe a total of 2 minutes of it previous to this. I shall post in the recently watched thread when I get around to it!

A lavish boxset of Attila Dargay, our most famous and beloved animation director, even known abroad - Vuk, the Little Fox was the BBC's main feature on the Christmas of 1982!

 

It contains brand new restorations of the 4 features he directed (3 of which are among the highest regarded movies in the country, everyone has seen all 3 at least once, if not 200 times, the 4th one is OK, too) in beautiful digipaks with a still on the inside and the original theatrical poster on the cover (exactly how I like it!), also featuring English subtitles and box text. Then a bonus disc collecting all his animated commercials from the '50s and '60s (newly found and transferred) as well as all his shorts (Variations on a Dragon is something you must watch right now!) from 1959 to 1991, as well as a 17-minute interview with his widow and regular DOP. Also included is a short booklet with some interesting bits about his career and a few nice storyboard and raw cell pictures.

I finally caved and bought the blu ray release of Call Me By Your Name.  The movie is a bona fide masterpiece (and honorary Merchant Ivory), enough time had passed that it's essentially half off on Amazon, and it includes a commentary track of just Timothee Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, surely worth the price of admission.

I already own The Wes Anderson Collection and The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel, so I guess I'm committed ;)
