The Official BD Wishlist and "When or will this movie come out on BD? Thread - Page 74

Wish they release a "proper" bluray for RAN with better picture quality. Not the mediocre studio canal release.

Spirited Away
post #2197 of 2575
I'm surprised the Samurai films aren't on BD yet, I though Criterion might have released them but maybe not. And Spirited Away, yes, I'm very surprised I haven't seen many Studio Ghibli films release on Blu - I bet they are in Japan! Wow, no True Lies? But they have Commando and The Running Man, not to mention the Eraser/Collateral Damage doulble feature. That's a real shame.

I'm waiting for Where the Heart Is and Erin Brockovich - my wife's two favorite movies. There was something I was waiting for but it's just escaped me...It will return..

But Don Knotts movies, besides The Private Eyes, I can't wait for those!

I'm sure it has already been mentioned but why no Abyss on Blu?
Has James Cameron ever mentioned this before?
post #2200 of 2575
James is too busy living out his ocean explorer wannabe fantasies to tend to his fans.

Yep, over a dozen times but thanks for keeping the dream alive.

Last year the rumors had it coming out in 2012, now the rumors push it back to next year.

And in other news, this would normally go in The Rumor Mill, but it's easier to just post it here: We've been checking with our industry sources and have confirmed that 20th Century Fox is definitely planning to bring director James Cameron's The Abyss and True Lies to Blu-ray at long last. Sources tell us that the hope is to do a big promotion with the titles sometime next year. Why the wait? Cameron is a pretty busy guy these days, so these things take time. (Hey, when was the last time you tried diving to the deepest point in the ocean?) Nevertheless, rest assured that the two long-awaited films are definitely coming to Blu in the not-too-distant future.

I want Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. This format has been around for what, 6 years now? And there's still a boatload of catalog titles that have yet to be released.

Supply and Demand is probably the main reason. I'm sure Titanic will be out after the 3D makes its run in the theaters.

I'm sure it will, but like AVATAR, will we get the 3D version on Blu or will it be limited to some TV brands like AVATAR 3D was (is?).

Got an email from some site I signed up on months ago announcing Phenomenon will be out July this year - yay!

I just pre-ordered the 2D version from Amazon for $22, shipping on Sept 14th. I just bought a new projector (2D) and don't plan to upgrade anytime soon, so the 3D at $28 would have been overkill.

I noticed that the 1925 silent version of Phantom of the Opera (featuring Lon Chaney, Sr.) was released a few months ago on Blu by Image Entertainment, and look forward to checking that out. (Official AVS Review in case anyone interested may have missed it back in Nov.)

I'd also love to see the TCM reconstruction of Chaney's London After Midnight released on Blu.

+1 on The Abyss, and also a higher quality xfer of T2.

I haven't been too impressed with the xfer quality on Cameron's older films so far (e.g. T2, Aliens), so hopefully he can up his game on future releases. If it takes a bit longer to get them done right, so be it.
post #2209 of 2575
They are old, but movies I love and deserve a good BD offering:

Explorers (1985)
Silver Bullet (1985)
Death Wish (1974)
Satan's Little Helper (2004)
10 to Midnight (1983)
Crossroads (1986)
post #2210 of 2575
Vision Quest, and The Eagles Farewell Tour, Streets of Fire(have both of these on hd dvd but would love blu-ray version for hid def sound).

At this point there aren't that many films I actively want to see on BD that aren't out or due fairly shortly. So my short wishlist currently goes like this:

1984 (1984)
The Stepford Wives (1975)
The King of Comedy (1983)
Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
Schindler's List (1993)
Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (2006)
Pink Floyd--The Wall (1982)

Still hoping for -
The Quiet Man
Friendly Persuasion

Here's a complete list of the Midnite Movies released on DVD and VHS. Are any of these available yet on Blu, or possibly in the works?

If the HD transfers were halfway decent, I'd probably pick up alot of these on BD beginning with the Corman/Poe pictures, the AI/Amicus Burroughs pics, and Hammer films. Don't recall seeing any of these in the BD sections at the usually places though.

I believe ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is in the works but the only one that I can tell you for sure that's available right now is WITCHFINDER GENERAL with Vincent Price.

WITCHFINDER GENERAL is a UK import...I got it from amazon.uk about 10 days ago. The feature itself plays fine in North America as do the HD special features. Be aware, however, that the SD extras are in PAL and won't play here.

The Midnite Movies were a pretty impressive series and I'd love to see a whole lot more of them (I've got about 80% of that list on DVD).
post #2217 of 2575
Merci for the reply Dex. And needless to say I agree 100% with your last comment. I also own quite a few of these on DVD, and certainly wouldn't mind addin a few HD editions as well. So a heads-up on any other future releases would be most welcome (from anyone).
post #2218 of 2575
I would realy love to see

The 13th warriors
Evolution

Ray
post #2219 of 2575
Here's what I need to complete what I consider my "essentials"-

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
Local Hero
High Plains Drifter
The Last Detail
A complete set of Tex Avery cartoons
and I wouldn't mind a completely restored and remastered The Good The Bad and The Ugly
post #2220 of 2575
Still waiting on the Cheech and Chong movies on BD.
