The Insider - 2/19/13

Been waiting a while, but the best film of 1999 finally gets a BD release. Pre-order is up at Walmart.com.

I just watched a full screen german DVD of this last week - all I could think of was, I really wish this was on blu-ray. It was as good as I remembered it but none of the impact as in the theater. My favorite Mann by far.

Absolutely fantastic. A SEVERELY underrated film, and as far as I'm concerned, Mann's best one...

Let's hope Disney gives us a good transfer. Their track record on catalogs is spotty. Still hard to believe this great film was 0 for 7 at the Oscars and lost to American Beauty. ugh.

Better than not getting any nominations unlike Mann's Heat.

This comes out next week. Doesn't look like there are any great prices. $14.86 currently at Amazon.

Not sure if Robert Harris' opinion carries weight in this forum:

Re: The Insider - 2/19/13

I was able to watch half of this last night and it looks great. I was quite surprised given Disney's track record on live action catalogs lately. The BD has really nice color saturation and plenty of detail. Would have been nice to get a new making-of, but at least we do get a solid a/v presentation for the best film of 1999.

Blu-Ray.com says Disney nailed it.

I think it was briefly $13.99 on Amazon and then they stuck to the $14.86 price. Sometimes Disney live action titles take awhile to drop in price and many hold steady. I think they did an outstanding job on it.
