Cutthroat Island was a guilty pleasure of mine so, if the price is right, I'd go for that.

I remember liking Replicant but I don't remember much of the actual film beyond the premise and a few scenes (like the funny bit with a prostitute) so I'll need to rent it to see if it's worth picking up.

The Ninth Gate bored me to tears, despite a great cast, so that's definitely not for me.

Never saw Chaos since the reviews were rather lackluster.

I never heard of See No Evil. Unless that's See No Evil, Hear No Evil. I'd be up for that.

I'm all over Replicant, bring on all of Van Damme's movies!
No interest in any of the others, though.

I love Cutthroat Island...so much better than it was given credit for. Looking forward to the DTS Master Audio too as the original soundtrack was great to begin with.

More fodder for the eventual dump bin at Wal-mart. Though I can't help but laugh that Lionsgate has more titles released and planned than Disney.

Wow, so Cutthroat Island actually gets some BD-exclusive bonus features? Obviously an insidious plot to force SD owners to upgrade their systems.

DVD Beaver on The Ninth Gate. Nothing too spectacular, but I'm in for Polanski in HD.

Seem to remember that I enjoyed the Ninth Gate but will Netflix before purchasing. When it gets down to the inevitable sub-$10 Lions Gate price, I'll probably bite.

Cutthroat has a wee bit of EE/DNR applied to it.

I never realized that Cutthroat Island was such a bomb until after I owned it. I really didn't think it was that bad. In fact I enjoyed it. I'm sure some day I'll find a bargain or used copy that I wouldn't mind picking up.

It just seems so funny to me that they'll release one of the all time money losing bombs before some of the blockbusters that are guaranteed huge sellers.

It's a budget title that will sell to the current BD demographic. Makes great fodder among the Wal-mart crowd.

Yikes, that Ninth Gate transfer doesn't look good. I'll upgrade when it's $5.

Dissapointing to hear about the Ninth Gate. I'll give it a Netflix first and make a choice from there.

Getting Replicant. Now I own all of JCVD's movies that are on Blu. here's hoping we get his better films like Hard Target, Lionheart, Bloodsport, Nowhere to Run, and Death Warrant.
