The Official BD Wishlist and "When or will this movie come out on BD? Thread

post #1 of 2575
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if the the BBC or similar plan to put out any Blu Ray stuff.
Im looking for any of the BBC at the Proms Hi Def broadcasts from Norah Jones..Paul Weller...Amy Winehouse...Corrine Bailey Rae.
Or maybe tv shows like ROBIN HOOD...BLEAK HOUSE...HOTEL BABYLON..
post #2 of 2575
I'd buy Bleakhouse in HD, but what I really want is Life on Mars and Torchwood.
post #3 of 2575
Dont forget about Spooks
post #4 of 2575
Spooks and Life on Mars were not made in HD.

Torchwood would be great though. One of the cleanest HD pictures i've seen and the BBC HD feed is on a par with the majority of disc releases we've had.

I believe the BBC's Planet Earth is already available for pre-order. Since Warner Home Video releases BBC programming in the US it is available for both formats.

You mean other than documentaries?

It's a bit early, don't forget that very few shows are shot in HD and none are shot on film.

In terms of films we've had Layer Cake and James Bond. We're also due Sense and Sensibility, Lawrence of Arabia and Battle of Britain. Of course, how "British" they are is up for debate.

Its a Fox/MGM title and all Fox titles are in limbo currently. We've been told for like several weeks now that Fox will announce something soon.
post #11 of 2575
I sure hope so. This is one of my highly-anticipated titles, since the only version I currently have is the first DVD release, which isn't even anamorphic.

My wife is still upset they delayed this one...

These are all "must buys"!!

Has anyone seen that Football Commercial with Shawn Merriman and Steven Jackson with the Last of the Mohican music playing in the background. It makes me wanna watch that movie so bad. Its the coolest commercial ever.
post #17 of 2575
The Last of the Mohicans, Dancing With Wolves and Moulin Rouge are at the top of my BD most wanted list...nice to see that Twister, another personal favorite is coming in a few months.
post #18 of 2575
ok so we all ove these but no dates for their releases
TOP NR ONE is DANCES WITH WOLVES first.
post #19 of 2575
Last Of The Mohicans is near the top of my wish list too, but only if it's the original theatrical release, not the watered down director's cut.

Thankfully I have a bootlegged Laserdisc copy of the theatrical. The only thing superior in the DC is Chingachgook's closing monologue.
post #20 of 2575
Just curious. Does it matter to you folks what the audio will be on these titles or would you buy them regardless for the upgrade of picture quality?
post #21 of 2575
Audio always matters. Lossless audio should have been a BD requirement.

Considering FOX has only released the DC for years now, since the first DC on LD, I wouldn't count on it.

Now the good news is that Warner has the internationa rights to this and on DVD they've only released the TC, and with an isolated music score track in 5.1 (I have it right here ). Awesome movie

I remember Dances With Wolves was my first dvd back in 1997 and I got it free with my $600 dollar RCA player that only had a yellow composite output.

Yeah, I paid $500 for my Toshiba in March of 1997 and was blown away by the picture quality. haha. I think we're getting A LOT more for our money with high definition!

"Watered down" and "Director's Cut" are two phrases that I would never expect to see in the same sentence in regards to a film. I guess I've only ever seen the DC, since I distinctly remember the monologue at the end.

What was changed from the theatrical release?

Sorry to bump an "old" topic.

such a great commercial. The first time i saw it i thought EA sports was promoting madden but it turned out to be nike. Great commercial. I would love to have that movie on blu ray as soon as possible.
post #28 of 2575
That commercial was directed by Michael Mann, and I agree, it is far and a way the best ad I've seen in a long time.

I'll fully agree with the OP. I loved the theatrical version and was thrilled when the director's cut came out... until I watched it. Hawkeye loses so much of his intensity in the DC. I also dislike Chingachgook's monologue at the end, it's too preachy. I preferred the shorter monologue in the theatrical cut.
post #30 of 2575
I looked at the cover of my laserdisc copy of TLotM and couldn't find anything that stated "director's cut". The only way to tell is by the length of the ending monolog?
