All Steelbooks

Elf - 10th Anniversary edition
Christmas Story - 30th Anniversary Edition
Scrooged - 25th Anniversary Edition

No news on details. All we know is that ALL will be steelbooks and combos (BD/DVD/UV).

These are 3 easy instant buys. The Elf cover looks a bit odd though.

How about Christmas Vacation with a brand new 4k transfer from restored elements? It's easily as good as the original... and some parts are even funnier! The current Blu-ray is atrocious.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Oh in what way? So far the only complaints I have read have been about the principal footage in CV. I have all three vacation BDs and CV is the best looking, sure it's grainy as it should be unlike Vaction which has been scrubbed of all grain and European which has thick dnr. I would rather have a transfer warts and all then a 'fixed for modern viewers' transfer.

Did anyone end up picking any of these up? Anything new other than the SB's?

Any word if Elf is a new transfer? Would be nice to have a version that isn't all DNR'd. I thought the BD looked fine on a smaller TV, but it looks pretty poor on a larger screen.

This is Warner Brothers we're talking about, so forget the idea of a remastered version. If UHD discs ever come out, I'd bet they'll be the first to use 1080p up-converts passed off as 2160p (along with Universal). They did it with their first Blu-ray titles using old, filtered 1080i (with about 540p effective resolution) masters and stating they were 1080p.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I saw the steelbook for A Christmas Story this weekend at Walmart. I would have been very tempted with new film transfers but Warner has so rarely remastered anything once a movie has been released on BD.
