we had the Abyss and True Lies discussion the other day now today this:


And in other news, this would normally go in The Rumor Mill, but it's easier to just post it here: We've been checking with our industry sources and have confirmed that 20th Century Fox is definitely planning to bring director James Cameron's The Abyss and True Lies to Blu-ray at long last. Sources tell us that the hope is to do a big promotion with the titles sometime next year. Why the wait? Cameron is a pretty busy guy these days, so these things take time. (Hey, when was the last time you tried diving to the deepest point in the ocean?) Nevertheless, rest assured that the two long-awaited films are definitely coming to Blu in the not-too-distant future.

Hmm, neither really appeal to me in 1080p, but if the theatrical of The Abyss is in there I might be interested.

Disney's Blu Ray catalog releases for this year and there are some titles that I really want!

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8386

I especially can't wait for:

Adventures in Babysitting
Ed Wood
Arachnophobia
Dick Tracy
Pocahontas/Pocahontas 2 (would prefer to just have the first film)
Rescuers/Rescuers Down Under (would prefer to just have the 2nd film)
The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

And the big one for many here...

HOCUS POCUS! And it says "special edition" on the cover, so let's hope it is!

http://www.blu-ray.c...-Blu-ray/40523/

There are a lot more titles so check them out. Most of them had bare-bones non-anamorphic DVDs, at least in Region 1. So a lot of these will absolutely be great upgrades for people who are fans of the films, even if there are no bonus features added. A great year for Disney animated/live action catalog titles!

This gives me hope for near-future blu ray releases of other live-action Disney titles. I'm really keeping an eye out now for Return To Oz... I bet they'll do a release for that film when the new Oz films come out in theaters.

The Poseidon Adventure will be available on Blu April 3rd exclusively at Walmart. Right now you can preorder it for 12.99. It will sit nicely next to my Towering Inferno, now if only Airport, Airport 75, and Earthquake will get decent Blu releases.

while in Wally world i found the Wolfman for 7.88 on blu. Not a good film, not a bad film, but it's an okay werewolf film worth the price.

It is!

How does it look on blu-ray?
"The film that really struck me was Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner.' That was a film I watched many, many times and found endlessly fascinating in its density. But I think the density of that film is primarily visual density and atmospheric and sound density, more so than narrative density. But, yeah, I think for a lot of filmmakers particularly, there will be a film like that in their past that they've really become a little obsessed with and seen too many times, or more times than seems healthy." - Christopher Nolan

It's sort of a mixed bag; many shots look great (at least on my small screen), but at times there is very heavy grain and softness. In any case, it must be vastly superior to the DVDs, and for that price... :-)

Speaking of lyrics from Superman, I gave my Superman blu ray away, the single disc version.

I went through all my dvd's and Blu's last night and gathered a few to give to my co-worker. Gave her the dvd of Carrie, Poltergiest, and the Poseidon Adventure. I like the Digibook format which is the blu version of Poltergeist I plan to purchase.

Dune for 4.90 Euro. I wish it was the SE (I haven't seen the longer version) but unfortunately it's not available in the old continent.

I know they they made it without him. I think Lynch no longer wants anything to do with Dune.

Isn't the extended version pan & scan only? Or is that just the fault of the German DVD release? I'm pretty sure that was non-anamorphic, too.

Technically, all Blu-rays are non-anamorphic, as they natively come in 16:9 resolutions, unlike DVDs, which had 4:3 formats and could produce 16:9 either by letterboxing (i.e. loss of resolution) or horizontal stretching of the 4:3 image (=anamorphic distortion).

And as you can see, I was talking about the DVD.
