Will there be more earlier movies on Blu-Ray?

Some movies I collected in the past but a lot of them were released with barebones and barely anything on it. I know they released Can't Hardly Wait which a movie I saw in theatres and it was a good movie in that time but a lot of 90's movies I saw get released barbones and I think deserve an update like


The Faculty
Halloween H20
Scream 1, 2 and 3
Back To The Future 1,2, and 3
Swimfan ( I know it got a average rating but I am a fan of Shiri Appleby)
Ransom
The Green Mile
I Still Know What You Did Last Summer


Also the Disney Classics that are not apart of the Plat series... will the others be out like Mary Poppins, The Lion King 2 and 3, etc

Re: Will there be more earlier movies on Blu-Ray?

I'm surprised we haven't gotten The Green Mile yet. I expected it a couple of years ago when the SE DVD came out. After that, I thought it would be released at the same time as Shawshank, but no dice.

BTTF has been the subject of rumors that it could come out later this year. We'll see.

I don't know what Disney's plans are WRT animation outside of the Platinum series and Pixar titles. I guess they're just waiting on a bigger market. They have yet to release a live-action title made before the 90s, so I wouldn't count on Mary Poppins soon.

I don't know about the horror titles, but isn't I Still Know... available in the UK? I think Matome has it; maybe he can tell you more about it.

Re: Will there be more earlier movies on Blu-Ray?

The Back to the Future films better hit Blu-ray this year or else I'll cry, and I mean that too. I sold my DVD's in anticipation a few weeks ago so this will be a depressing year for me if I have to go the entire year without my favorite films. I am not buying them again until they are released on Blu-ray.

As for the Faculty: Heck yeah! That one really needs a re-release. All it ever got was that crappy non-anamorphic release. And Scream got just the same kind of treatment, for that matter. They should come out with a box set with all three Scream films on Blu-ray. I know that I would want to buy that one on the day of its release!

And I recently sold my two disc of Green Mile in hopes of a Blu-ray release as well. I figured that it would come out sooner rather than later considering the release of The Shawshank Redemption.

Movies like from the 20's? Probably not.

Oh, nevermind.

Word is that Kevin Williamson is writing the script for Scream 4, so if it happens, they'll probably time the Blu-ray releases accordingly.

Re: Will there be more earlier movies on Blu-Ray?

If BTTF is released again only on DVD as has been suggested then there is serious problem with at Universal.

Anyway, I'm hoping for movies earlier than that list myself.

I have the UK region-free import BD of this and it looks pretty damn good. Especially the part where JLH comes out of the shower with that really thin bathrobe.

Your idea of earlier movies and mine is miles, maybe light years, apart.

I'd love to see The Faculty, Halloween H20, Screams and even Swimfan on BD. The DVDs of all I mentioned were pretty poor so a BD release would be awesome. BTTF seems like something that should have been done with the DVD re-release in a few weeks...but maybe Uni is holding them back for the Holidays?

I Still Know...will come out this year. Shame Sony canned it at the last moment when they released the first one. But like another poster said, the UK import can be purchased for roughly the same price as the American version would sell for and all the extras play just fine in American BD players.

When thy release I Still Know.... on Blu -- won't it be the same as the UK import? So if I want it I should get the UK import one?

Well movies made in another decade of time I consider earlier movies. I tend to collect or want to own a lot of the 90's movies since I watched a lot of them and like most of them. There were only a couple movies before the 90's that I am really a collector in. My time frame of movies I buy is 1990 - present.

Probably the same except they might add the BD-Live portal to it. I have the press sheet for for the now canceled version...I'll compare specs

John Polson is a now forgotten director of early cinema, although academic research has indicated that he was a notable contemporary of Dreyer, Keaton and Chaplin at the birth of cinema.

You could go with either wording. Delayed to me means they pushed it to another date, and give us a new date. Canceled to me means its not on the schedule. And since it was suppose to come out in July and its now January with no date, I'd stick to canceled. Regardless, no reason not to import it. It will be the same price when it hits USA anyway.

Speaking of imports, does anyone have a link to a list of titles available that are only available as imports? I know of a couple of sites but the lists aren't being updated.
