Yes, I read about it.

I want to see The Good, The Bad, and The Weird with Lee Byun-hun! This one should be a good one...

Check out the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqOp83Nd0wg

Anyone see or hear about a korean movie called Il Mare?

I found the trailer for it on youtube, but I can't tell what its about, or even less, if its any good: link

That trailer looks like a Calvin Klein comercial, but it doesn't do much for me.

I think it stars the same girl from the movie My Sassy Girl if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, I have seen it. Have you seen the US remake of Il Mare called "Lake House" with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock? The movie is about two people living in different timezone but they cross communication with each other through the mailbox. I don't want to give too much of the plot, but if you like love story with suspense, then you'll like this one. I have too many recommendation, and this is one of them. There are a lot of bad movies out there, but this is not one of them. Let me know what type of movies you like, then I can make my recommendation. I do wish Il Mare is coming to Blu-Ray in the near future.

I enjoyed Il Mare. Yes, she's the same actress in My Sassy Girl. It might be a little bit on the slow side, but the story was still entertaining. If you like My Sassy Girl, then I highly recommend Windstruck with her in it as well. Also, you should check out Daisy with the same actress.

Il Mare is so much better than Lake House....as you know most remake are not up to par with the original...such like Infernal Affairs. The remake The Departed is not as good as the Infernal Affairs.

Here's a site that includes picture of the 2 different edition of the DVD set: The 3 disc set is the new version release as seen on the right side of the site link below which includes postcards. The first release is only a 2 disc set. You can still get the 3 disc set in yesasia I believe for under $20 as I remembered.

To keep the forum from being cluttered and possibly overrun with individual threads here is your place to post your BD wishlists and ask if your favorite movie is coming out on BD or has chance to do so. Current releases and announced releases should already be in the other sticky.

So I'm just wondering what everyone thinks/wants to get great treatment like Blade Runner did as far as packaging, features and PQ/AQ.

I'm thinking maybe Alien, Gladiator or Titanic? I think each of those would be great for this type of treatment.

I'd deffinately love to see them put alot of effort into a good Kill Bill set.

As for Aliens, I'm sure alot of people would like that, but I'd much rather see the boxset.

I am an avid LSU Football Fan and thoroughly enjoyed watching my Tigers win the National Championship in person. All of the BCS games were televised in high definition. All of the games are going to be available for purchase on DVD. I am hoping that the games will also be released in high definition. FOX and ABC (Disney) broadcast the games and therefore I am assuming that the format would be Blu-ray.

Does anyone have any suggestions on pressuring the studios to sell the game in high definition? Many of us bought high definition televisions with watching sports as a major consideration.

Thanks.

Gerontosaurus Rex is Complaining.

Since this so-called 'format war' is rightly coming to an end (hopefully) and will take with it to its grave all intellect-free fainboy-posts, I dare trying to shift the focus of the AVS High-Def Blu-Ray Software forum to older movies.

Before I plunged into the format war I considered myself younger than I feel today (after reading what so many forum members called their favourite movies). I have no intention whatsoever of judging anyone, but I have to say that the films I long to see on High-Def are quite different.

Without the naive assumption that anyone cares, I still want to stress how much I long to see certain movies being released on Blu-Ray. Please, have patience and bear with me. Here it comes (you might never even heard of those titles):

SLEUTH
No - not with Jude Law, but very much with Sir Maurice Micklewhite and the one and only Lord Olivier of Brighton (I adore). It is the year 1972, the magnificent and unique (and equally adorable) Joseph L Mankiewicz has made his last moving picture as a director, telling 'Lord Larry' and Michael Caine how to act (as if that would have been necessary). The result of such a most impressive collaboration is a film with performances some people today might consider old-fashioned or even out-dated. But I couldn't care less. It is as old-fashioned as myself, who refuses to leave the house without a necktie and a jacket and who would be shaken to the core if he had to visit a restaurant where they dare to confront me with a paper napkins or tea bags.
First released 1998 by Anchor Bay on one of the worst DVDs ever, you had to flip the disc after 'Inspector Doppler' appeared on screen, you had to suffer through a 1,66: 1 non-anamorphic framing, and the wonderful soundtrack by John Addison was faulty. The edition was replaced 2002 with a slightly better one, but still without the tender loving care this title deserved. Anchor Bay - please, please, please do me the favour or granting Sleuth the High-Def treatment it genuinely deserves. And put on the Blu-Ray everything you can find about this brilliant movie.
(A little hint: Why do I call myself 'Merridew'? Watch this movie and you will know).

THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT
Even rarer. Could you believe it - there is not a single High-Def disc out there with Katherine Hepburn on it! Feel ashamed, Blu-Ray producers, feel ashamed!
Imagine this: Part of the story, far from being realistic in any way, is the wonderful Danny Kaye, who spoils us with one of his greatest performances ever: the ragpicker who has to play an attorney and who gives the speech of his lifetime (in the cellar of Countess Aurelia), while Yul Brynner, Paul Henreid and Oscar Homolka want to dig for oil - in Paris!
It starts with this written introduction:
'This is a story of the triumph of good over evil - obviously it is a fantasy'.
This gem of a movie was never released on DVD (!). The Laserdisc I have is from Warner, so, please, please, please Warner - let us rejoice in watching a Blu-Ray with a film everyone should know (and most critics hate).

I could go on and on. But don't be afraid - I won't. I just wanted to mention two examples of movies I not only love but which introduced me into the realm of film as an art form.

Movie studios - let us few, us happy few, feel blessed by the presence of Blu-Rays with old movies we love.

And he which hath no stomach to these films, let him depart.
His passport shall be made, and discs of Transformers and Spiderman 3 put into his purse.
We would not watch movies in that man's company that fears his fellowship to watch with us He that outlives this day, and comes save home, will stand a tip-toe when those Blu-Rays are released!

(Terribly sorry for the last paragraph - couldn't resist!)

I am sorry, 'townofturley', it was not my intention to annoy you or anybody else. Couln't find a sticky for what I wanted to express

I just finished a passionate discussion about movies and High Def with a couple of people and wanted to know whether anyone esle out there share my thoughts. I am new to forums. I hope I did not break any forum rules. I won't do it again. If the mods consider my threat inacceptable - please erase it.
