10/11 - THE EXORCIST (non digi-book) - not sure if this will have both discs. amazon and blu-ray.com both list it as being 2-discs but who knows...seems the digi-book version is out of print so i need a confirmation soon so i can pick it up if need be.

10/11 - THE COMANCHEROS (non digi-book)

Nice news on Exorcist, maybe it'll hit $9.99 before Halloween.

And of course I would notice the post about the non digi-book version of The Exorcist a day after ordering the digi-book.

thats pretty fast, but i am sure that record is held by the original dvd pressing of Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors back in the 90s recalled and discontinued the day after it was released due to Frank oz beeing pissed off that the Alternate ending was included on the disc.

Wasn't it David Geffen who was upset?

Ed Wood. History of Beavis and Butthead. I can name more titles that were discontinued the day of, or before, DVD release. Not a new thing.

Yea, but those had much better reasoning than The Misfits, which seems to have no reasoning whatsoever.

Mission: Impossible Gift Set Collection - December 6

I have a bad feeling this is going to be a simple repackaging of the old discs. I guess we'll never get lossless audio for the first 3 films.

And when they get lossless audio is when I'll actually purchase them. But can hope.

I think the biggest issue is that the second one badly needs a new transfer.

Yes I think it was Geffen. What I remember was that he was upset that the alt ending was on the disc in an unfinished state (black and white), and he was promising a re-release in theaters with that ending or some other "proper venue".

That was how many years ago now? And still no other release of it? Glad I have the OOP disc! (Although I find the alt ending really depressing and rarely watch it. Its almost like a snuff film. lol)

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

Final Destination 5 on December 27 but NO MENTION OF A 3D release. The 3D on that one was great and I was really looking forward to it - maybe it'll be announced later as a retailer exclusive. Warner and other studios are trying their hardest to keep 3D blu-ray a clusterfuck of confusion and frustration.

I'm thinking and hoping it will be a Best Buy exclusive since Warner's is distributing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows 1 and 2 (3D) that way.

Still no extended cut on DPS, eh? Not even the additional scenes as a bonus feature.

I might finally buy Good Morning, Vietnam after all of these years. Almost everytime I see that sucker on the television, I stop for at least 5-10 minutes to enjoy it.

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

^^^^Now official, but I hope there is more extras.
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Jus...Season-2/16127
This past Friday we showed off package art for DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc versions of Justified - The Complete 2nd Season. Today was the official announcement day for this title by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, and they've revealed that these will be in stores beginning January 3rd (a date which you can now see at the Amazon.com pre-order listings, using the button link below). Each 3-disc set will run 546 minutes and includes special features such as "On the Set of Justified", the featurette "Clans, Feuds & Apple Pie", Outtakes, and the Blu-ray exclusive "Talking Shop: Roundtable Discussion". As previously reported, the pricing is $49.95 SRP for the Blu-ray, and $39.95 SRP for the DVD version...but you can pre-order either one at a discount from Amazon!

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

Going back to Little Shop of Horrors: yesterday at the Museum of the Moving Image, Frank Oz did a panel there as part of the muppet exhibit they're running through the end of the year. He mentioned that he just got word from Warner Bros that Little Shop of Horrors is planned for next year in time for Halloween - 2-disc DVD/blu-ray which will include the original ending.

No interest in any of those here, but nice to see AB is still alive.
