Relax, im not bashing BD. Considering I only support BD that'd be kinda stupid now wouldn't it.
Its more bashing the studios. .
But after reading the Oscar battle thread, I just noticed how we only have two of the Best Picture nominations out on BD yet, but it seems almost all the Razzie award winners have been released already.
The biggest winners (er...loosers?) of Razzies:Basic Instinct 2 - 4
Little Man - 3
Lady in the Water -2
Honorable mention to RV
All are available to us. The only two winners not available are Scary Movie 4 (our HD DVD friends get to enjoy that) and Date Movie, which i'm sure Fox will bestow upon us soon.
But when you look at the Oscar winners:The Departed 4
Pan's Labyrinth 3Dreamgirls 2
An Inconvienient Truth 2
Little Miss Sunshine 2Babel 1
Letters from Iwo Jima 1
The Queen 1
Last King of Scotland 1Happy Feet 1
Marie Antoinette 1
Piratest of the Car. 2 1
Only two are available currently to us. And 4 have been announced for release later on. 6 with no status.
Anyone else find it funny how these studio can bust out movies like RV & Lady in the Water so quickly to us while the movies that people actually want take a back seat? If Departed already made it out, I dont see why it should take longer than this for any other movie to come out.
Whats worse is the 6 movies that havent even been announced for any HD release. And from what we've seen in the Oscar battle thread, most of the movies are from Blu-Ray exclusive studios, since Universal didnt win anything.
Moral of this thread: I want more GOOD movies dammit
I'm not saying we arent getting good movies. We definitely are and i'm happy with Departed, Prestige, Babel, etc... coming out recently. And Stranger Than Fiction, & Casino Royale coming out soon. But I still find it weird when Fox announced Last King of Scotland on DVD, yet no Blu-Ray announcement. :| or Little Miss Sunshine even makes it out on DVD yet still no BD announcement. It makes me wonder if this is how serious the studios are in a format war, how serious would they have been if there wasnt one?
