They really are kings of the double dips! Bad artwork also

I was just reading about this on tDB....

Not sure if want. Doesn't sound like much worth dipping down for again. I wonder if all the cuts will even be in this one.

I just checked the calendar. Nope, not April 1st.

Knowing WB they will not improve their master or their encoding of same with this release.

I think I'll pass.

Have too many different versions on hand already, so I very likely won't buy unless it goes on sale for a really low price.
post #6 of 150
how can you top the previous release? The only thing is the bonus features/booklet.....I'll pass too.

Higher Bitrates for more teal?

An improved encode that matches the quality of the trailer.

New encode please, Warners. Otherwise you and your 1000+ image gallery can **** right off.

They can lose the bs grain matching on the final cut also

I think I MUST have had four versions before I even got out of laser disks... I am happy with what I have now

If I remember correctly, the new release audio will be in DTS HD Master... The original Blu-Ray was only Dolby Digital 5.1...

Six and an EPK?

I would imagine the price would drop drastically on this one. Avatar, with 3 versions seamlessly branched, and 3 blu rays, is $30.
post #18 of 150
slightly off topic, but does anyone hear your center speaker distort at the beginning of the final cut???

Yeah, me too...another yawner from my "favorite" studio.
post #20 of 150
I have the collectors case of DVDs and the 5 pack previous BD release. Nope, not buying this one....

I've never seen sooooo many neg posts on a beloved title...
WB has "Jumped the Shark"!
post #22 of 150
The only way I'm buying this is if circa 1982 Sean Young delivers it to my house dressed as Catwoman.

Is that dandruff on the cover?

Jumped the shark? They have been shark bait during the whole HD era.

The good news is there has been a HD version of Blade Runner that has a higher bitrate (if that's how you judge good or bad), more detail and more film grain then the Final Cut. It's called the Director's Cut and has been available for years although some miniature vfx shots look better on FC. It also more closely resembles what I saw in theater color wise when the film was originally released.

At worst WB BD output can be called mixed, there are studios and distributors that have a worst record and at the same time a fraction of the output.

WB is...well...Warner Brothers....
It is NOT unreasonable to anticipate/ask for a top-flight product...
post #28 of 150
When I postED WB...
I meant "marketing".

I think we all agree (finally, ha, ha) "BR" is a GREAT, GREAT, GREAT film.
When you have so many posting against such a release so adamantly, its got too have something too do w/marketing (since the transfer the same).

Shoot, too me, the 'nuthing brief bout' briefcase was "JTS".

IGN continues to show just how qualified they are to be discussing Blu-ray.

Tech specs are unknown at this point. Blade Runner was a fine Blu-ray back in 2007, but compared to most Blu-ray restorations today, it comes off a bit soft and not nearly as clean or striking, especially when compared to the wonderful restoration done for Ridley Scott's Alien. Let's hope Warner is prepping a fresh 4k restoration with DTS-HD Master Audio.

Will this version be an 8-disc set of duplicate versions? I swear I've only ever bothered to view 1 disc out of the 5, when it was first released on Bluray.
