I second the "request" for The Eagles Farewell Tour I... really surprising it's not out, as I believe it was shot in HD, and it was already released on HD-DVD so the video side should be pretty much ready to go... even on the audio, I hear that there was always some sort of "hidden" DTS-MA track on the HD-DVD...

I'd like to see, Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue) the original version. It was a hit in Europe but a flop in the U.S.--where it was trimmed, rescored, and given a new ending. I saw the Japanese release selling on Amazon for $158.00.<br><br>"Luc Besson's The Big Blue has endured as a minor cult classic for its gorgeous photography (both on land and underwater) and dreamy ambiance. Jean-Mar."

They got the first two on the list right...look forward to the Abyss extended version on Blu Ray especially. Would also like to see Tombstone on Blu Ray with its extended version, not the almost 5 minute cut version already out.

The Wall is a perfect candidate for Blu Ray! It was originally filmed on 70mm high-speed high-resolution film with 6-track sound. I remember seeing it in the theater (many many times) as a teen and being amazed at the clarity and detail. You can see every fiber in the carpet in the opening scene. I really wanna see this in 1080p!!! (on my 102" projector screen)<br><br>The original film negatives and developing/processing cost over a million $$ per 15 minutes of film (and that's in 1982 dollars). In 2002 MGM created 20 new 70mm prints from the original negatives. So the original negatives must still be in a vault someplace. No need to remaster a blu ray from a scratched up copy.

I am a huge John Cassavetes fan. One of the two movies I am referring to one that made it to DVD but almost impossible to find: The Killers(early sixties). The other one is Brass Target that made it to laserdisc but NOT to DVD.<br>I have two more: Purple Hearts and Mulholland Falls.<br>I am still hoping all four make it to BD DVD.

The majority of films listed in this thread are already in 1080p on Vudu streaming. I've had True Lies, Tucker the man and his dream, Somewhere in Time and many others in HD for a very long time. The Abyss is one of the hold outs in HD even on Vudu.

Even have the Audrey Hepburn classic "Wait Until Dark" in HD Vudu knowing it will be forever till that classic gets a Bluray release.

Bad Boys 2 is my favorite movie. I have been waiting for years and years for the BLU-RAY of it to come out. Blows my mind its still not released.
Been reading several reasons why it is not out yet, all of which suck. Bring me my bad boys 2!

"No Escape" 1994. Really enjoyed this b-film. Good action, good pacing, and a solid story. Fun, Fun, Fun.

Have been waiting to see if they release it on BluRay for a while. :-(

Is one of the reasons because Bad Boys 3 is not out yet?

Since I am a die hard Elvis Presley fan I would like to see EPE and Sony team up and release the Elvis Aloha From Hawaii dvd boxset on Blu ray as well as the 68 Comeback Special boxset. So far they have released some of Elvis's movies on Blu ray as well as the concert doc's Elvis On Tour and Elvis Thats The Way It Is. Why not the 2 I mentioned above? The Comback Special and Aloha were THE highlights of Elvis career and I think its time they get a Blu ray release!!!!

Hey, Solarman1066 -- I am a bit confused here. I am assuming you are referring to the older 1960 classic version? If so, the Blu-Ray of THE TIME MACHINE has been out on Blu-Ray in the US since this past August (2014) -- as I recall. It is a decent transfer, overall. (Not a GREAT transfer, but it most definitely decent.). I believe right now Amazon has this for $13.89 (as of February 14, 2015).

Or, am I missing something?

Good information, thanks. However, it is also best to keep in mind that this thread was specific to Blu-Rays -- and also that there are a lot of folks here who have been less than satisfied with high definition streaming -- and any of the Video-On-Demand options, even the ones with downloading options. This most certainly includes Vudu, or any of the others. High definition is a very big bucket, with lots of variation in quality filling it. In my own case, my frustration with Vudo, Amazon streaming, Netflix streaming, Itunes, etc., is due to the severe compression which always exists, and which becomes very noticeable and even annoying to me on my 110 inch screen. I even see its results on my two 65 inch screens, and I am hard-wired (ethernet Cat6, throughout the house). So, it is not even the lossiness of a wi-fi setup. For many others, it is the frustration of dealing with very limited audio choices, and in some cases with limited subtitles, or no option for subtitles... etc.

I know, some of us are dinosaurs. But, I keep trying streaming, about once every three months -- and have never been happy with the results -- from any of the providers.

Back on topic -

I wish for:
The Abyss; 20,000 Leagues (a guilty pleasure); Mulholland Dr;

Despite "The Wall" is my top wanted title so far, Roman Polanski´s "Pirates" is also on my list. It was released in France a couple of years ago, than disappeared from stores...
