I am STILL waiting for The Ghost and the Darkness to come out on Blu-Ray! That is really the only older movie that I still really want. Anyone know about it?

So, Ghost World will be out, shortly. Buffalo '66 is already out. Devil's Backbone is out.

I should sell off some of my 1984 DVDs before it does come out on BD, which I believe will happen.

Personally, some I'd like to see on BD are:

Barfly
The Year My Voice Broke
Flirting
The Station Agent
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover
Pink Floyd: The Wall
But, no joy (Region A) for any of the above, except 1984.

Real Genius is a holy grail title that just came out on Blu. It is a pricey Amazon burn on demand title, and reviews that focus on the film instead of the cost of the Blu are actually saying it has a good PQ and Martha Coolidge provides a commentary which is nice but otherwise bare bones with no additional extras.

Dragonslayer. Man, what a gem. But with Disney involved, I doubt it ever will.

why can't we get a fucking Bluray release for The Hitcher (1986)? Shout/Scream could do wonders...

According to blu-ray.com, it's a Paramount title. I think I have the DVD, but it's not an important title in my collection. I'm pissed nobody has done Stephen King's Storm of the Century. I know Echo Bridge had access to it at one point. I want single disc release of it to replace this double-sided garbage DVD.

Plenty of other movies more neglected too... Sidekicks (1992), Catch Me if You Can (1989), Back in Action (1994), Volcano-Fire on the Mountain (1997), or some of the many other movies that still haven't gotten a DVD release, much less blu-ray. Not to mention some titles that need proper treatment but HBO etc is just sitting on them forever like Bridge of Dragons (1999), Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead (1991), and No Escape (1994).

Why is Candyman not on Blu? That is very odd...

I'd love to upgrade my DVD copy but not at that price.

If you don't mind importing, the UK release is all-region, although it doesn't seem to be that warmly received.

This should be with Sony stateside, and with as license-happy as they are, I'm surprised someone hasn't snapped it up.

Why isn't Splash! on bluray? It's Disney, right? Why the hell not. Get Tom, Darryl, Ron. Why wouldn't they want to do that?

I just watched The Ghost and the Darkness (1996) on Encore, and was wondering why this isn't on Blu-ray in the US. It's available in Europe on BD. It's a very suspenseful story with fantastic location photography.

I'm still hoping for Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Would be a great Disney Movie Club Exclusive.

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

So I have been paying much less attention to upcoming blu ray releases, so a couple of catalog titles that were recently released on blu snuck up on me, first I noticed a review for Space Camp on this site, and I am all holy cow it is amazing and so random that this movie just came out on blu, and added it to my amazon cart (I had an itch to watch it a couple months back and viewed my ripped dvd copy on my apple tv), and ye gods another massive surprise, I noticed a review for The Hidden on blu!

I am still picking my jaw up from the floor because after all this time I thought that if titles like Space Camp and The Hidden had not come out on blu in North America after all this time that they probably never would (and at best I might get lucky to see these films in HD if they randomly popped up on the schedule of say the IFC or AMC network). Maybe if I continue to not pay attention to blu ray catalog release dates a review for Alligator on blu will eventually show up for me to check out when I hit this site.

I'm still waiting for someone to pick up and realease a nice blu-ray Collector's Edition of Grand Tour: Disaster in Time with Jeff Daniels. The only copy I could find of that movie is full screen, came in the old style jewel case, and the movie is VHS quality. There's a better WS DVD version of it but I'm not paying $50+ for it. I wish someone would pick up the rights to do a proper blu-ray release of it.

After watching the Netflix documentary Jim &
Andy: The Great Beyond
I find it disappointing that Man on the Moon isn't out on Blu-ray. Hopefully it comes out at some point.

I'd like to know why the fuck Scorpion King hasn't gone UHD yet. It was way better than the 3rd Mummy movie and deserves to be part of that set, as it was connected to that series.

Somebody once mentioned how neat it would be to do a standard def dump of all the US dub episodes of Shin Chan on a Bluray and now I keep imagining how cool it would be.

So, that.

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

Regarding three particular Netflix films that can currently be streamed on that site:

OKJA
MUDBOUND
WHAT HAPPENED TO MONDAY

I contacted Netflix minutes ago and asked when we might expect DVD/Blu-ray releases of these films, and was told by Harley that he had not received any information about video release as of now.

These are good movies (I would say the first two are truly outstanding), and I would like to have physical copies of them. How about you all?

Netflix Customer Service #: 866-579-7172.
