First on the list is Aladdin. This animated Disney classic has remained a favorite with exceptional musical performances and great comedy. Looking at this future release on a technical level, if the transfer is a success, it will be eye candy for any videophile. Aladdin was one of the first Disney films to use some CGI effects, and colors really popped on the big screen. The score features wonderful orchestral performances that will excite both your ears and your speakers.
True Lies, where art thou? This has been one of the go-to DVD demo discs for AVSers for many years. Although many newer films have better original elements—such as CGI and 4K masters—this one remains a true action classic worthy of Blu-ray. This most-anticipated release is rumored to be released sometime in 2014. I wonder if James Cameron is working on making a 3D version of True Lies? We shall see next year right in time for the film's 20th anniversary.
Another James Cameron film rumored to be released at the same time as True Lies is The Abyss. I can't say enough good things about this film, and I'm still amazed that it was made way back in 1989. The movie offers some visually breathtaking scenes, especially in the dark depths of the abyss. I assume it's going to get the same treatment as True Lies. Maybe a 3D version? If so, it will be nothing short of spectacular, especially if Cameron is working on it. Funny enough, it would also make sense for release next year, as that will be its 25 year anniversary.
Will these be on your next list of pre-orders?
