Actually Keinohrhasen is listed as 2 Blu-rays+1 DVD. But the steelbook only has the one disc not sure why or what the difference would be.

Yeah you would think that the Steel Book would have the extra discs etc...

For some reason Amazon tagged the studios as W.H.V - DVD and such.

They are all BDs - I only track titles that have Blu-ray binding...



Cheers!

Discshop is showing a scandinavian release of

Walk the Line / 2.40 / 1080p / DTS HD MA 5.1

Release date: Aug 15th

Looks like it has a nice load of extras too. Price is steep (30), so maybe I'll see if it shows up somewhere else. Doubt it though..

Also, my copy of Cassandra's Dream BD was shipped today AND I was able to order the new Rambo 1-4 boxset (by Optimum with a new VC-1 encode for First Blood) for 9,95. Real price was later corrected 10-fold

First Blood was released on HD DVD by Optimum (AKA Studio Canal) in 2006, before Lionsgate released their Blu-Ray, so I wouldn't call it a "new" VC-1 encode (assuming they are porting it to Blu-Ray, and I don't see any reason why they wouldn't). It is also one of the HD DVDs to suffer from the high-pitched audio problem that early Studio Canal discs suffered from. I own the HD DVD and I'm happy with it, but I thought I should clear that up for you. The audio pitch isn't really a big deal to me, but there are lots of people on this forum who absolutely hate it (and by hate it, I mean they H-A-T-E it, they have blasted me several times for merely suggesting that it doesn't bother me personally).

Oh all right, didn't know that it already has been released on hd dvd. Well, didn't expect any improvement since the discs are apparently BD25's except for Rambo.

I do hope that the audio issue will be resolved with this release. Actually I wouldn't have bought it in the first place, but 2,5/movie was sort of appealing

Anyway, when it's released (late June) I'll compare the releases (I also have the US BD 1-3 boxset + Rambo BD already) and post some comments.

Ya, they're definitely worth it for that price. I've seen mouseover comparisons between the HD DVD and Blu-Ray (I'll be damned if I could find them again, I searched for about an hour) and I liked the HD DVD better. The film grain is in-tact and there is more fine detail on the HD DVD, but it's a little softer than the Blu-Ray which had a lot of DNR done to it. It's a toss up, really, but I preferred the HD DVD.

And like I said, the pitch issue really doesn't bother me, so even if they don't fix it, you may still be able to enjoy it anyway.

*EDIT*

no screens, but lots of opinions on the comparison:

Apologies if this has been mentioned but I haven't seen it. Amazon.de has each Dirty Harry movie as a separate Blu-ray for EUR 26.01 with taxes removed. Warner releases them in Germany on July 4, 2008. No boxset.

Probably not worth it for any American even if you only like a few of the movies, given the price of the US boxset, but maybe for someone overseas.

EDIT: Ah, sorry, I see they're all already out in the UK as separate releases in normal cases. Hadn't heard about that...

Does anyone know if they remove the VAT if you live outside of Europe?

Same question here though I received the below reply from freerecordshop CS.

Quote:


Dear customer,

Unfortunately it is not possible to remove VAT for orders in any country, when you place an order in Holland.

This had to do with the fact that in Holland all retail businesses have to pay VAT over every article they sell, this is according to the Dutch law.

We hope we have informed you sufficiently.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,
Free Record Shop

http://www.vanleest.nl seems to have the same prices (and same layout! but no English) as Free Record Shop but with cheaper shipping. That said I still can't vouch for whether my Neverending Story BD from them will actually arrive.

Tempted to go with the German version of Iron Man put out by Concorde studios. They've always done excellent transfers etc, though I still have the US version on pre order. Decisions, decisions.

Funny Games (2007) - Tartan Video - 28 Jul 2008


Don't think I've seen this mentioned in this thread yet? Seems there's no BD stateside from Warner. Hated the movie anyway, myself.

Terminator 2 - Optimum Home Entertainment - 4 Aug 2008


That's so much better than the zoomed-in swooshy US cover.

Cliffhanger - Optimum Home Entertainment - 4 Aug 2008


First Blood - Optimum Home Entertainment - 4 Aug 2008


Rambo: First Blood Part II - Optimum Home Entertainment - 4 Aug 2008


Rambo III - Optimum Home Entertainment - 4 Aug 2008


Are Optimum and Momentum the same thing or do they somehow have competing BD and HD DVD rights? I see Momentum did T2 and the Rambos on HD DVD with totally different covers.

Not sure why T2 has an 18 certificate on the cover, since the uncut version was long ago reclassified 15. Must be something in the supplemental section which has bumped up the UK rating?...

Temp art for retailers more than likely. I doubt the commentary would bump it up to an 18.

Agreed with above poster....Funny Games was garbage...I "got what they were trying to say" but not worth any price to own, please rent before you ever would buy this. Love the "Cliff Hanger" cover art. Does anyone know if the Blu Ray T2 release will be exactly the same as the HD DVD was? I bought it, what a let down (with so much build up hype) that one was.
