For anyone who missed out on the theatrical release of Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed film Django Unchained, you will soon get your chance to own it. Nominated for five Oscars, Django includes an all-star cast of very talented actors, which certainly helped in Tarantino's telling of this action-packed western. The latest Tarantino spaghetti western is scheduled to be released April 16, 2013 on a Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet/Digital Copy combo disc pack.Terminator Anthology
Like most people who own the Terminator movies on Blu-ray, I was hoping that a box set would include improved transfers, but alas, it isn't so—the discs in the Terminator Anthology are essentially the same as the individual releases. If you waited for a box set, now is your chance to add it to your collection, but don't expect the best possible Blu-ray experience. Due to be released March 26, 2013.
Here's a glimpse at the disc specs:
The Terminator—Codec: MPEG-4 AVC (32.00 Mbps), English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz, 24-bit)
Terminator 2: Judgment Day—Codec: VC-1 (19.27 Mbps), English: DTS-HD Master Audio 6.1
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines—Codec: VC-1, English: Dolby Digital 5.1 (no lossless audio!)
Terminator Salvation—Codec: VC-1 (25.60 Mbps), English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz, 24-bit)The Great Escape
I still remember the day I picked this up on DVD and was mesmerized by the transfer. It is too early to know which video and audio codec the studio will choose for the Blu-ray version, but this will always remain a wonderful classic for me, mainly due to the all-star cast and the great escape itself. Release is set for May 7, 2013, just in time for its 50th anniversary.
