Universal seems to have given up on the practice entirely. Only a few titles are still issued that way. The first three Bourne movies were re-issued back in June as BD-only releases.

The only one I've seen recently that hasn't gotten a reissue yet is The Jackal.

Get the superior Canadian BD anyway for The Ghost Writer. That was always a non-flipper and had the longer international cut with less censorship.

I just got a message back from the WB Shop on facebook, saying that the nonflipper disc is availble with the link to it. Just ordered it from them for eleven bucks. Hope they are right or I will return it.

I don't even want the effing DVD. Keep the damn thing. I'm buying blu-ray for a reason.

Shit. I'm ranting on an old thread. Never mind.

No worries, go ahead and rant. As I've said a billion times, I'd rather get a laserdisc copy of a movie with a Blu-Ray than a regular DVD!
