I got a sneak peek at Sunshine and that's shaping up to be a pretty cool disc.

Twister pushed back on both formats

LINK

"Unfortunately, Warner will be making fans wait a considerable while longer to see 'Twister' in high-def, setting a new street date of May 6, 2008 for all three editions of the film."

If you mean Warner, I'd say yes.

I mean EVERYONE.

Earlier this year there was a ton of titles that were releasing. Now it really only seems like 20 some titles are being released for the XMas season.

I remember the last 'Announcements' being flooded with new material just about daily!

Pretty sure everyone is now just coasting thru the holiday season and waiting to see how it all plays out. Spidey, Transformers, Shrek, Ratatouille, Bourne...all the big ones will come and they'll see how they all do, then we'll likely hear all sorts of press announcements about how well everyone did (or not) in January before the next "waves" of releases start in 08.

It's really disappointing on the HD DVD front. There are more Blu-ray exclusives I'm buying next Tuesday than I am for the rest of the year on HD DVD.

(At the same time, there are about as many Warner titles I want than all of the exclusives on both formats combined.)

New Date and features for Life of Brian Blu-Ray - 1/29

http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/sh...n_Blu-ray/1125

Specs (and a New Date) Revealed For 'Life of Brian' Blu-ray
Thu Nov 01, 2007 at 03:17 PM ET
Tags: Disc Announcements, Sony (all tags)

After being elbowed out of the studio's Q4 line-up not once but twice, the boys of Monty Python will finally invade Blu-ray this January with an 'Immaculate' set of newly-discovered extras.

Like something right out of a Python movie itself, the tortured saga of 'Life of Brian's Blu-ray release began last August, when Sony first announced a November 6 arrival for the comedy classic on Blu-ray. That date was subsequently bumped back two weeks to November 20, only to be completely yanked from the schedule a few days later, with no new announced street date.

Now, Sony has finally re-scheduled both the Blu-ray and DVD edition, which will debut day-and-date on January 29. Wryly dubbed the 'Immaculate Edition,' the studio says 'Brian' will contain a host of never-before-seen bonus features.

Identical to both the Blu-ray and DVD will be a brand-new documentary "The Story of Brian," a newly-discovered feature-length recording of the first full-length read through of the 'Life of Brian' script, five digitally-enhanced deleted scenes; newly-illustrated radio spots promoting the theatrical release; and two full-length audio commentaries featuring Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, John Cleese and Michael Palin.

Tech specs for the BD-50 dual-layer Blu-ray release include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and audio tracks in both uncompressed PCM 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround.

Sony has set a suggested retail price for the Blu-ray of $28.99.

I gotta agree with that. Warner teased us with all those titles expected to come out The Shawshank Redemption, L.A. Confidential, Batman, etc. But none of them have been officially announced.

Well, there have been some announcements from other studios for January titles, but Warner has been silent. What I was alluding to was how they're supposed to decide on one format to support. I believe they may be holding off on announcements until they make that decision.

Woo hoo! Now we can all see Viggo's junk in HD!

Seriously though, this was a really good film. Nice to have another HD DVD to look forward to in December other than Bourne Ultimatum and Stardust.

Are there any "must have" HD-DVD releases in the next month or so? I know it depends on a person's interests, just curious if there were any HUGE releases coming soon.

I would consider The Aviator a must-have release. It was actually one of the main reasons why I bought into HD-DVD. I love the movie and the way the film was shot with the colors should make this one of the nicest looking releases on the format.

Bourne Ultimatum on Dec 11.
Shrek 3 on Nov 13
Star Trek TOS Series 1 Remastered - Nov 20
Battlestar Galactica Season 1 - Dec 4


Those come immediately to mind. Then there's the Harry Potter series in mid Dec (but that's HD DVD and BD)
