aside from 2010 the remaining nine to me are just blah.

Warner's just release 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', 'Excalibur', and 'Grand Prix' and I'd be a happy camper.

I agree with Excalibur. They just need to do a nice anniversary edition and put it in the proper OAR.

I'll get American History X for sure. The Wedding Singer I might get eventually.

In any case I will wait for the prices on these titles to drop.

Disappointing list for me but I will get American History X and maybe 2010 even though it is a huge drop-off from Kubrick's film..

Not too excited about this list. I'll definitely pick up American History X at some point when I can find it for a good price. Out of the rest, the only maybe would be 2010.

As I said in the announcements thread, my head nearly exploded from excitement upon hearing Tango & Cash was on its way. A guilty, guilty and awesome pleasure. Rambo and Snake Plissken in the same movie!!

Will buy American History X upon hearing that it appears to have some new extras.

Stupid question: What's the point of " Blu-ray release announcements" sticky if they all inevitably get their own thread anyway?

Anyway, never mind the threadcap.

American History X and Tango & Cash for me.

The way I look at it is this, all day & date titles and the big catalog title announcements deserve their own thread. And then smaller announcements go in the general thread. I posted this same info in that thread because for me, it wasn't an important announcement.

People are free to create a specific thread if they choose to, there's nothing wrong with that. The generic announcements thread is a good way for those who want to see a rundown of what's been announced recently, as opposed to searching for numerous titles in separate threads.

It's possible to put a sub-2 hour film on a BD-25 with Lossless Audio. Hey, look at RocknRolla.

FWIW: New Warner coupon code WBRND8 gives 30% off and free shipping on orders over $50 - and all 10 of these (plus others coming out before these) available for pre-order. They are priced at $23.45, so about $16.41 after applying the coupon.

This is the only movie on the list that really made me excited, a couple of others I'll likely get, but this is the one must-own for me. But why on earth is this a "guilty guily" pleasure? Liking High School the Musical is a "guilty" pleaure. There is something wrong if you are embarrased about like a movie starring Jack Burton & Rambo.
