Galaxy Quest - Deluxe Edition >> May 10th 2009

http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releas...axy-quest.html

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced a deluxe edition of Galaxy Quest which stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman. The Dean Parisot directed film will be available to own from the 12th May. Extras will include featurettes (Historical Documents: The Story of Galaxy Quest, Never Give Up. Never Surrender: The Intrepid Crew of the NSEA Protector, By Grabthar's Hammer, What Amazing Effects, Alien School - Creating the Thermian Race, Actors in Space), a Thermian Audio Track, deleted scenes, a Sigourney Raps feature, and the theatrical trailer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tie in to Star Trek? Nice.

Not as nice: no commentary, terrible cover artwork, and no Blu-Ray.

Perfect time for the Blu-ray. Oh - wait - no, Black Sheep is more important.

Not trying to be obnoxious, but I think you missed something in the list of features.

"Thermian Audio Track" sounds like a waste of space.

Other than the names not lining up with the correct actors, I'd like the cover art if they removed the two little aliens.

I'd definitely get it on Blu-ray; not sure if I'll get this release or wait.

Love the movie, but this doesn't sound like a double-dip for me.

Damn shame too considering the original has a full bitrate DTS track ..and it sounded great in the pre-HD days.

I wish they would release the film as it was shown in theaters - 1.85:1 at the beginning then 2.35:1 after the outer space reveal.

They should remove the re-dubbed line of Gwen's that they did to avoid a PG-13

Is the "The True Hollywood Story" type documentary they did for the Sci-Fi channel on this? I don't recall what it was actually called, since they didn't use THS.

Well that sucks. I never bought the original release knowing another "deluxe" would be out eventually. This just sounds underwhelming. Blu-Ray would be a no-brainer for me.

To think I was just wondering about when this would hit Blu-ray a few days ago....

...and now this news. How disappointing.

Maybe the release of Tommy Boy sold well on Blu?

Anyway....yeah, for Galaxy Quest, no Blu means no interest for me...

Why re-release a movie like this today if you're not going to put out a Blu-ray? Makes no sense...

Bitch, bitch, bitch. Why dont we have one long thread for people to bitch about certain titles NOT coming to Blu-ray. Seriously have a thread called "Titles coming to DVD but not on Blu" or whatever and just have a bitch fest. It would make things alot easier and save time for people who dont want to read the same "boo-hoo this isnt coming to Blu-ray" comments over and over and over. You wanna know why some titles dont come out on Blu and only on DVD. Well allow me to educate you. Its cause studios are wary to put out many titles on a format that sells far less than its DVD counterpart.

A 9 year wait for a Deluxe DVD when the current DVD was already pretty loaded? You got patience!

Get used to it. Its only going to become worse. Its not like this is a small niche film...its a decent catalog title that appeals to the Blu-ray demographic.

Well this is a film that already had a pretty solid release so putting out a lame double-dip and not pushing out a BD version with it is pretty weak. Well worth the complaints, IMO.

That being said, I never owned the original either but might have picked up the Blu if available.

In addition to what Gizmo said, as I understand it, there's an off chance that some industry folks might see the boards, and making it extremely clear that most of us won't purchase unless we see a Blu counterpart is exactly the message we want to send.

Re: Galaxy Quest - Deluxe Edition >> May 10th 2009

But actually, if they come here (and check their sales figures to boot), I'm sure they'll realize that even most of us DVD geeks don't care two shits about blu-ray. Until they give away Blu-ray players and HDTVs, and can guarantee a quick and easy set-up as great as the one in-store...I'll pass. DVD is good enough for me.
