Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

Mine would be:

Hero (Jet Li movie, Asian release. Miramax totally pooched the US release and I won't buy it)
Strange Days (hoping, now that Bigelow is the It Gal in Hollywood)
Boston Legal
Tokyo Godfathers
Fantasia (7.1 lossless sound, kkthx)
A proper release of Master & Commander. The current release looks like a 480p upconvert.

EDIT: Had to remove the BD version of Jackie Chan's "Police Story" afterreading this review. This is not acceptable at all.

Strange Days would be nice. It doesn't even have an anamorphic transfer on DVD, at least not in the US.

It's available from the UK region-free and is good quality - great price too.

I find myself hankering for some Weerasethakul. I'd love to see Syndromes and a Century on blu-ray. If it's ever released, I imagine I would have to pick up a region-free player to see it.

Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

Alien Anthology
Rocky Horror
Sound of Music
Romeo+Juliet
Moulin Rouge!
Last of the Mohicans
.... all coming 3/4Q 2010

Linky: http://www.thedigitalbits.com/mytwocentsa178.html

4-14-2010:

20th Century Fox has just announced plans to release more of its major catalog titles on Blu-ray (and DVD) this year, as part of its 75th anniversary celebration. Specifically, the studio has confirmed that its 3rd and 4th quarter Blu-ray slates will officially include The Alien Anthology box set (all four films restored in a new 6-disc set packed with extras - including EVERYTHING from the Quadrilogy DVD box and new content as well), The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 35th Anniversary Edition (including new special features, live cast re-enactments and karaoke), The Sound of Music: 45th Anniversary Edition (restored with 7.1 lossless audio, and new features), William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (with a new HD transfer and BD-Live features), Moulin Rouge! (also a HD transfer with BD-Live content) and The Last of the Mohicans (in an all-new director's "definitive cut" with new features including an interview with star Daniel Day Lewis). There's also a massive DVD box set of Fox films coming this fall, and more. Some of those BD titles we knew about already, and some are new, so good news all around. We'll post additional details as they come in over the coming months.
Blu-ing Moulin Rouge and Romeo+Juliet is awesome news (to me). Just need to get Strictly Ballroom Blu-ed to complete the set!

You realize this is discussing the Blu-ray, not the DVD, right?

No.

A lot of the times they'll list this on the packaging, but if the site you're using doesn't scan that, you can check a site like http://bluray.liesinc.net/

With the Paramount disc OOP, I'd love to see Criterion put this one out on Blu. One of the best films of the 1970's.

I don't know if they were filmed and the effects were done in such a way that they could be made high def but if so, I'd enjoy seeing The Librarian movies on BD.

Any word on Xanadu yet?

I saw the Magical Musical Edition DVD w/ CD at Costco today for $9.99 and was tempted, but would rather wait in hopes of a BD.

Since several of my most wanted are being released or are announced for this year, I'm adding Oh Brother to my list. It is a really fun movie and all I have a burned copy. I meant to buy a copy to own but once Blu-ray came out I stopped buying DVD's altogether

This will be out of left field, but I really want the Jersey Girl: Director's Cut. All of Kevin's other films got the deluxe treatment on DVD & Blu, but sadly this one has not.

Never caught Cop Out in theaters either, has there been any mumblings about that one yet?
