warner home video has announced a moratorium initiative that will see north american sales on three best-selling titles frozen for the last four months of the year. The moratorium begins september 4 and includes video-on-demand, electronic sell through and all digital delivery. The titles will then be re-introduced at various dates throughout 2010 in new editions celebrating a confluence of events: Anniversaries, stunning remasterings, and spectacular new blu-ray debuts.


The titles include:


Caddyshack (anticipating the first blu-ray release for its 30th anniversary)


the exorcist (anticipating the first blu-ray release and special edition dvd)


doctor zhivago (anticipating the first blu-ray release for its 45th anniversary)


stated jeff baker, whv's executive vp and general manager, theatrical catalog: as the saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder.' we know film fans will be eagerly awaiting the return in 2010 of these iconic films. And we're going to make it worth the wait, with beautiful remastered prints, recovered previously lost footage, and exciting new bonus content all with the latest blu-ray technology.

fyi

Dr. Zhivago may knock How The West Was Won as the best in PQ among catalog titles.

How could it? You are talking about a Cinerama original shot on three (3) 35mm negatives with a 6 perf frame height vs a film shot anamorphic on a single 35mm negative with a 4 perf frame height.


That's over a 4:1 larger negative area for HTWWW compared to Dr. Z!!


And the HTWWW BD is considered reference quality by many.

I'm just tired of being Exorcised....I don't care who does the crabwalk, I'm stille kind'a partial to the pea soup and 360 cranial action, but I'm tired of the film as a whole. Those other two films I'm hot for.

While it's not a movie I particularly like, I hope they have the decency to make a new transfer of Caddyshack, I thought the HDDVD was absolutely dreadful.

While I strongly disagree with your feelings toward the quality of the movie, I wholeheartedly agree with your characterization of the HDDVD. Let's hope for a new transfer for this classic.
