I've already got my MoC steelbook of Double Indemnity on order - assumedly free of the DNR fiddling that seems to plague most of the US Universal releases.

Harvey is one of those titles that I've just never gotten around to watching. Not sure why. I'll give it a shot on Blu-ray when it comes out.

It's been a long time since I've watched it. Saw it on TV years ago. I really liked it at the time. I'll certainly give it another watch when the disc is released.

Re: New wave of Universal catalog releases

While it's nice that they're using poster art, the overall effect is ruined by the multiple crappy banners across the top. And is the film's target audience really clamoring for a digital copy?

Finally, I can watch this classic on my phone while taking a shit!

Seriously, though, there's a high probability of that happening. Can't wait to buy this one.

I love that it's coming to BD. The Buck Privates Blu-ray was garbage, though, I hope that's not the case here.

The target audience would especially enjoy an Ultraviolet copy

Re: New wave of Universal catalog releases

Has the "Sixteen Candles" release been moved up? Bluray.com still shows 9/4, but Amazon says "in stock on August 19th".

STREETS OF FIRE? I'll believe it when I see it. That will probably be the last HD DVD in my collection.

Re: New wave of Universal catalog releases

Blu-ray.com review of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein - I guess at this point "there's little doubt that the film has undergone some digital scrubbing and tweaking" is as good as it can get as far as Universal meddling with transfers goes.

Mamma Mia! is one of Universal's greatest films?

Truthfully none of the films from the 2000's they picked are that great if you ask me with exception to maybe The Bourne Identity.

And to be fair, you really do need to adjust these with inflation.

Definitely. I think Universal has one of the better catalogs of the majors. Many of my favorites are from them.
