post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

Here are June's Blu-ray Disc releases that I anticipate receiving for review. I will drop a post in any of the existing threads in Blu-ray software forum to advise when they are in. I will give you guys a brief heads up on what to expect in terms of quality. Of course I won't give away too much..

Here they are:











Its going to be a busy month !


Cheers,

Patton is supposed to be a reference quality disc that I am really looking forward to.

I'm definitely looking forward to the reviews on the old war movies (Patton, Battle of Britain, and A Bridge Too Far) but some of the newer titles should be interesting as well.

So when will we star seeing these reviews Mr. Potts?

Greetings,

They should begin showing up in the next week or so. I try to get them done as I receive them.

Sounds great Ralph... I was just teasing anyway. I know you get them done as quickly as you can.

I suspect Patton will fly off the shelves as a Father's Day gift. Great timing.

I will be highly anticipating the review for several of those titles Ralph (especially Patton). Thanks for your time and effort, I enjoy your reviews.

Believe it or not I have never seen Patton. I am looking forward to seeing it for the first time.

Let's just hope that they put the subtitles for "The Longest Day" where they belong!!! (That would be in the 2.40:1 image area as seen in the theater when film was projected, not in the black bar below the image). That way, those of us with CIH projection systems can actually enjoy the film without compromising image size....

I've got all three of the WW II movies on SD DVD's, so I'll be curious to know how the BluRay discs compare to the SD DVD's. Ralph, is there any way for you to make this comparison during your review?

Hi Ralph,

Off topic here but will you be reviewing The Air I Breathe with Kevin Bacon this month?

Thanks,

Cheers,

George C. Scott portrayed Gen. Patton so well, you'll think you're watching a documentary! Masterful performance by the late Mr. Scott.

Greetings,

Cal, I don't have any of these on SD DVD and I won't be able to make the comparison. Sorry.

Tom, it looks like that one is from an independent studio and is only available in SD currently. I won't be covering it at this time. Sorry.

Ralph,

Will you be reviewing the Dirty Harry Collection?

In the review for The Longest Day, I'd be interested in a comparison to the 2 DVD versions that have been out. While the 2nd release was anamorphic, which allowed the subtitles to be read when the movie was in the correct aspect ratio, the image seemed noticeably softer than the non-anamorphic version. It was one of the first two DVDs I bought, so if the Blu-ray is a big improvement I will probably triple dip on it.

Well there are plenty on that list that are must buys for me Ralph and I can't wait to see signs on BD. Looking forward to your impressions regarding the soundtrack. Anyway so far it looks to me like you are doing a wonderful job here!

Greetings,

I don't currently cover Blu-ray releases from Warner but may in the future.

Having not seen this release on DVD I won't be able to provide an opinion on either previous version versus the Blu-ray Disc. Hopefully the quality will be good enough that it won't require it.

Eagerly awaiting the write up!

I'm so excited about the WWII movies, that I'm tempted to buy my dad a blu-ray player for father's day... except he doesn't have an HDTV (only ED).

June's the best month in quite a while for quality catalog releases. Maybe the best month yet.

Ralph, one notable absence from your review list is Sony's Persepolis which is due towards the end of the month. This movie is radically different than any other animation on Blu-ray to date. If you get the opportunity, I'd highly recommend giving it a look.

Good to see the initial Patton impressions are good. I actually thought the DVD looked pretty good, so this is one I definitely can't wait to get.

No problem Ralph. Maybe someone else will buy the BluRay disc and post a comparison somewhere.

Apart from your postings, do you recommend any other sites that post reviews of BluRay discs? I'm trying to be choosy in deciding which BluRay disc to buy, and just wondered whether you had any tips for a BluRay newbie. For example, I remember reading somewhere that there was a problem with one of the BluRay discs in the "Die Hard" collection, but I did not pay much attention to it at the time because I had not chosen sides in the HD/BluRay format war, and now I cannot remember where I saw the review! So I've been holding off buying the "Die Hard" collection until I figure this out!

Thanks for your help.
