re: Blue Underground on Blu-ray

Not sure how many BU titles I'd upgrade to BD for. I'll probably get Maniac if the transfer is a marked improvement, but what I'd really like is Zombi 2... just with the Shriek Show extras.

Have yet to pick up The Stendhal Syndrome, so I might get that on Blu.

re: Blue Underground on Blu-ray

I would pick up more Blue Underground releases on BD if they were priced just a little cheaper. Unlike every other studio though, their items rarely come down in price, even years after the initial release. A M.S.R.P. of $34.95 is a little too high in my opinion for much of their current catalog. I think somewhere closer to $29.95 would generate more profit for them.

re: Blue Underground on Blu-ray

The MSRP for these very niche titles is ridiculous. I've passed on the last few simply because most would be blind buys and I'm not spending $30 on them.

re: Blue Underground on Blu-ray

Im guessing theyre expensive because theyre cult favorites and BU puts alot of work into them with Bonus features and pic/sound quality. Well worth it for that price than other studios crappy releases.

Smoke and mirrors my friend, smoke and mirrors. BU has tons of great titles yet they release questionable titles. Where the hell is Zombi? Maniac?

Good news about the talk on Maniac Cop and Street Trash.

Bummed about Lemora though, as I loved the film.

I'm double-dipping on these not because they're coming to Blu-ray, but for the added commentaries. Too bad they're not offering some sort of free audio downloads for those of us who purchased them sans commentary. Oh well.

Also looking forward to Volume 5 on 9/29.

Re: Blue Underground and Synapse Films to release on Blu-ray

I know Synapse put out the View Askew films that weren't directed by Kevin Smith (Drawing Flies, A Better Place, and Vulgar). Out of the three, A Better Place was my favorite (not to discount Drawing Flies, which was also very good; haven't seen Vulgar), and I would LOVE to see a Blu release of that.

Actually, the only one of those three movies that Synapse released was A Better Place.

I stand corrected. Thanks.

With that said, though, since A Better Place was released by Synapse, I'd like to see it on Blu.
