Sweeeeeeeeeeeet! Must. Have.

Is it possible to order directly from that Amazon? Maybe one of the DVD importers will sell it. Either way, I gotta get it. Although, I have a good backup plan if there's no easy way to get it online, since I work for a German company.

I'm pretty sure Xploited is likely to carry it when it's released.

yes, you can although the shipping time takes eons to get to you (if you're in the states).

Man oh man... This looks tasty.

I would rather wait for a Planet Terror and/or domestic announcement so I can save some money. If this was $90 for Grindhouse with the trailers and/or other interstitials, I would've paid for it already.

Actually not interested in seeing HD versions of Grindhouse. They're meant to look really crappy, I don't need to shell out cash to see them look really crappy in HD.

Not the last few reels of Deathproof.

We need the extra resolution to show all the dirt and scratch

Son of a bitch.

I hope these come out here, I'll sell my current steelbookss for these. Actually, I'd sell those either way for them in regular HD cases. But HD Steelbook? Delicious.

Why would that be? I order from Amazon in France, Japan and the UK all the time, and shipping takes maybe two days longer than it does from the U.S. Web site.

I enjoyed Death Proof a lot more than Planet Terror so I think I'll be getting this.

I can't believe there is no US release. What are they thinking. And yes I will be getting this too.

When does this come out? I'm here in Berlin for a few weeks. I can look around if I know it's available.

Well, I'm sure Weinstein is probably thinking, "We haven't made any profit off this High Definition crap yet, so why should be waste any more good money releasing it."

The fact that they've primarily released crap movies, and not a single day-and-date title, should be taken into account, but probably isn't.

I'd pass on a HD version of this anyways, steelbook or not. The movie isn't meant to look spectacular, even though the final reels are not "worn". This isn't something I need looking crisp as hell. I'd probably buy a complete edition of Grindhouse on HD if it were released that way, but I wouldn't upgrade my steelbooks of either entry for HD versions.

Agreed. I'm sure the logic is "Why bother spending the time/effort/money to release in high def when our titles only sell a few thousand copies." But most of their releases have been terrible titles and their release schedules have been puzzling.

Clerks II came out 6 weeks after the standard DVD (and 2 weeks after the holidays), pretty much guaranteeing that everyone who wanted the movie already owned it. Odd decisions all around.

Now they've completely gone into hiding while some pretty high-profile titles -- 1408, Grindhouse, Halloween, Nanny Diaries, Sicko -- go unreleased on HD DVD.

I don't think I need Sicko in HD!

Likewise... now if it was a domestic release & part of a BOGO deal, I'd probably jump on it.
