True Lies isn't available on Blu-ray? I have lost all hope for mankind.

True Lies has been long hoped for on Blu-Ray, but it never materialized. Kind of strange, considering there was a 1080i/MPEG2 version of True Lies that had banging DTS 5.1 audio released way back in 2003, on D-Theater. The film recently got an even better 1080p/AVC download/streaming release last year, though only with Dolby Digital audio. Maybe that means it'll come to Blu-Ray soon. UHD-BD would be nice.

The Road Home

Zhang Yimou's The Road Home deserves a Bluray edition that shows its exquisite cinematography and the wonderful performance of a very young, lovely Zhang Ziyi. Currently (STILL!) available only on a pedestrian DVD with no extras, this is long overdue for a worthy presentation.

I'd like to see "The Haunting" (yes, the one with Katherine Zeta Jones, etc.). I know it's got it's cheesiness, but I enjoyed it and it looked fantastic on DVHS Hi-def tape when I had it.

That movie has insane bass and awesome sound overall as well.

I would not get my hope too high, James Cameron is know to want review all transfer.
It is too bad for us avid movie goer, but I hope that I wrong and you are right


The "13th warriors" is a guilty pleasure of mine, and hope to see it one day deserving a Blu-ray transfer.

I want 1935's Top Hat to show up on Blu-Ray or UHD Blu-ray. No Fred and Ginger? What gives I thought Warner remastered them for Blu-Ray many years ago. I want Bob Hope films, and a few more Paulette Goddard films would be nice. Also I want to see more 90's kids films that lots of people still like anyway. Bye Bye Love (1995), I'll Do Anything (1994), Homeward Bound (1993) Sidekicks (1992). Lots of people would buy those.

I just said 'maybe' due to last year's release of the 1080p streaming HD download version. Lots of films get streaming only HD releases, but it's a very popular and beloved catalog film, so I said maybe. Definitely don't get your hopes up though.

Now that Arnold's Apprentice show flopped, they should make a sequel to True Lies. Won't ever happen, I know, he couldn't get a decent script to save his life these days. I'm ashamed of how he carries himself these days anyway. Maybe he should just retire.

Cannery Row. Debra Winger and Nick Nolte in their prime
El Cid: only if they did a complete soup-to-nuts remaster. (the current DVD is awful)

Kind of off subject but I met Eliza Dushku almost 20 years ago at Camp Hale. Maaaaan, I had myself a little boy crush on her thanks to True Lies.

My most anticipated since the dawn of the format has been The Abyss. Looks like that might be soon remedied, thankfully. It'd be nice to see a high quality 3D conversion, like Titanic and T2 (can't wait to see that one in theaters)! A theatrical rerelease would also be welcome.

Glad to see The Keep mentioned. Only a dim hope of that, I fear, though Netflix had it in 720p for a while!

Schindler's List and Gladiator are both on BD, though two posters above mentioned them.

For now, I'd like to see Forever Young, Truly Madly Deeply, The Prince of Egypt, and about a hundred others! Fortunately many of these are streaming in HD, at least.

How about the theatrical cuts of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi? Yes you can get the de-specialized editions, but not 'legally.' I thought I read somewhere that Disney said it will never happen either but we can hope and pray.

I would like to see The Abyss and Vanilla Sky released on Blu-ray. I thought those were both great movies.
