Had Akira for week or so, but no other purchases for next week. Futurama is an eventual rental.

Futurama is a rental this time around. The last two were horrible.

French Connection would be an automatic purchase for me, but I'm very worried about all of the things I've heard about Friedkin's revisionist transfer. I'll have to wait for reviews.

Vanishing Point. Gotta have it.

Pass on French Conn, but i'll get French Conn II since I don't own it. Reviews on French Conn seem to indicate that BD doesn't do much to help the picture. I'm find with my 5-Star edition.

Possibly the French Connection at a later date.

I was interested in purchasing Ronin, but after reading the review at dvdbeaver, which states it's identical to the Japanese release (mpeg-2 transfer and zero extras), I'll pass.

Will rent Akira first and then make a decision based on that.

That has got to be one of the weakest release weeks in the sort history of Blu-Ray. It is a money saving week for me.
