I wish that they would have negotiated for Criterion's extras from the long-OOP DVD release releases, but I think the only company who has been successful at doing so is Anchor Bay.

I don't see any mention of the deleted scenes, which would be a HUGE loss....unless they will be under the heading of "Vintage Tap Materials"?

I'm pretty sure a couple other companies have been able to get Criterion's extras from them other than Anchor Bay....The Rock Blu-ray (from Disney) carried over almost all of the Criterion extras....I'm pretty sure Sony licensed some former Criterion extras for one of their Monty Python DVDs (Holy Grail I think)....also, the upcoming new edition of Do The Right Thing from Universal looks like it is carrying over a lot of what was on the Criterion DVD release....

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part III

I mentioned Anchor Bay because them getting the Criterion commentary with John Carpenter for a release of Halloween was the main case I could think of, as for *years* Criterion was notorious for not licensing their extras.


They still never put such a deal in place with MGM, though, which is why none of the extras from Robocop, Silence Of The Lambs, or Sid And Nancy, amongst others, were ported over to them.

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part III

I think the Civil War series by Ken Burns was one of the best documentaries ever made. Certainly a sterling addition to my collection. I wonder how that would look in HD and if that is in the works?

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part III

There might be some reluctance now to release 1.33:1 material. We haven't seen much other than classic films. They may want to wait until people get more accustomed to pillarboxing.

Then again, maybe they can do like Disney did with Pinocchio and have decorative artwork. Perhaps they can put the Union and Confederate flags on each side?

Friday, Set it Off, Menance II Society on September 8

Warner Home Video has announced that they will bring three "urban titles" to Blu-ray on September 8th, including 'Friday: Deluxe Edition', 'Set It Off: Deluxe Edition', and 'Menace II Society: Deluxe Edition'. All three titles will be presented in 1080p AVC with 'Friday' receiving a newly remixed 7.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack, and the other two receiving 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtracks.

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part III

^ I would assume the Menace II Society bluray is the unrated cut (that was released as such on laserdisc from Criterion).

it's rather odd that this isn't listed in Ken Burn's imdb listing. Anyone know if this was shot on film or HiDef?

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part III

Will definitely grab Menace II Society especially if it's the longer cut, and Friday, cause, you know, it's Friday, ya ain't got no job, ya ain't got no money...and you ain't got shit to do!

From the blurb, the confirmed Sept 1 date supersedes the tentative Aug 11 date.

The one at releaselists.com, although it doesn't cite a source. It just says it's a confirmed 9/1 date and that the August date's off now. I guess by the same token, I could make up a 9/15 date and say it's confirmed, but...

Amazon is also listing 09/01 as the release date with $27.99 posted as their pre-order price.

Edit: Hmmm... they removed the listing.

Once the posts go past 1000, it's supposed to be closed. And this one is up to 56 pages.

I think the new servers can handle threads past 1000 posts...but probably a good idea.
