Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

Little Darlings (1980)
Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979)

I assume complicated license/music rights are preventing these two for release.

For some reason Sony didn't put these two out on Blu-ray

Wind Chill (2007)
When a Stranger Calls (2006)

Both are not great but I happen to enjoy them anyway and wouldn't mind both on Blu-ray.

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet







Pretty much every popular Norris movie got a BD release except these. Forced Vengeance is a super underrated Norris action thriller.

Super puzzled why FOX/MGM didn't release Invasion USA on BD when they released The Delta Force and both Missing in Action movies.

Wonder Boys. You have Hank Pym, Iron Man, and Spider-Man in the same movie. That would garner a little attention on the shelves, I would think.

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

The lack of Chuck Norris releases are puzzling, though I think Kino and others will soon solve that dilemma.

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

Slither came out in Canada, though it has been out of print for some time. I think you can chalk up the lack of certain Cameron's movies to the man himself.

I count the following Norris movies not being on BD:

The Cutter (2005)
Top Dog (1995)
Hellbound (1994)
Sidekicks (1992)
The Hitman (1991)
Delta Force 2 (1990)
Missing in Action III (1988)
Invasion USA (1985)
Forced Vengeance (1982)
Silent Rage (1982)
Breaker, Breaker (1977)


As I mentioned above, the only 2 here that I really care about are Forced Vengeance and Invasion USA. Delta Force 2 is okay, but I wouldn't lose sleep if it never got released. I'm content with my old MGM DVD.

I really want Silent Rage. I don't know I didn't get the DVD when they were clearing them out for a couple of bucks.

Someone just announced Delta Force 2 for a Fall release.

...and if you are region free, there's a true HD (Canadian blu is 1080i) blu-ray of Slither from Germany.

There's also an Australian release, which came out around the time of Guardians of the Galaxy (not surprisingly)!

I'm still waiting for Bad Boys II

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

I'm not really surprised they haven't gotten a BD release (in the U.S.), but these two didn't even show up on U.S. DVD.

Dr. Terror's House of Horrors
Day of The Triffids

Since Triffids was released in U.S. by Allied Artists I'm assuming WB is sitting on it. Keep looking for a Warner Archive. All copies I've seen have pretty bad color fading. May not be any source up to standards.
Although released theatrically by Paramount in U.S., assuming they no longer control Dr. Terror's.

Coincidentally, I watched both on Blu-ray last week. The German release is region free and contains both movies.
