Hmm not much there for me. Maybe Quick and the Dead and River Runs Through It when they're on sale.

Zip for me. Nice to see these being released, nonetheless.

I'll definitely get Easy Rider, maybe a couple of other titles.

I think they are all on Amazon for pre-order... Labyrinth is in my Gold Box today. No need for that, but I will take Easy Rider and Midnight Express.

Agreed.

Might get Easy Rider, but I'll keep my 30th anniversary Midnight Express DVD for now.

Where's Taxi Driver, I ask? And Cliffhanger, I'm SHOCKED this doesn't have a domestic release on Blu-ray yet.

I recall Lawrence of Arabia being promised as "coming soon" back when the first batch of blu-rays hit - now all this time and nothing. Fuckers.

Yeah, the wait sucks, but on the plus side, I happen to know that the delay is a product of them doing it right. Your patience will be rewarded with a stunning product.

I really hope you're right about that. It would highly suck to have them release it, then only to see substandard picture quality and it be barebones. I'm hoping for the best as it's one of my favorite films.

Add Easy Rider to those, and you've got my picks.

EDIT: Add Go, Punch-Drunk Love, St. Elmo's Fire, Snatch, and Starman to my picks...

Honestly, I think a 1080p version of the restored "Superbit" edition (along with the extras from the previous edition) would be pretty fantastic. They could've cranked that out quick.

Trust me; it's being done right and it will destroy what the Superbit transfer would've looked like on Blu.

So this is the Nichols movie and the Branagh movie bundled with the already released on Blu Coppola movie?

That's desirable...
