The ones that I might be interested in are Fatal Attraction, Flashdance. But, $23 is a little pricey for me for a 30+ year old movie.

And FA leaves out extras content. Not sure about FD, but don’t think worth it. Same audio on all sounds like...

The big selling point for both of them is the new 4K transfers supervised by Adrian Lyne. Some supplemental material is missing.

Eh, I think with these reviews, better off not bothering for any. I have them on blu and digital and those will suffice...

I just saw a review of the new one. He was disappointed, and prefers this older one.

Fuck that. I paid $4.99 for the FA 4K digital via vudu. I'll probably watch it this weekend -- I'm lagging on that one with all this other shit I've been watching this week.

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

I like the idea of this line, but the initial announcements are supremely underwhelming. Looks like it's a good thing I already own To Catch a Thief, and I love Airplane but am not sure I find it necessary to upgrade if it's not a proper 4k release. Same goes for Fatal Attraction.

I just bought a bunch of these cheap. New. Why does only Trading Places and Elizabethtownhave digital codes? Why wouldn’t they all?

I suspect it has to do with producer agreements over digital rights. They've gotten better about including digital codes in recent waves.

Highly recommend The Court Jester from this line. Magnificent VistaVision film transfer that dazzles even on Blu-ray. Paramount should have put it out on UHD. About the only consistent things in this line are fancy slipcovers and the Leonard Maltin featurettes.

I guess I'll have to get these as placeholders for the eventual 4K disc releases. I can now retire my digital HD of Another 48hrs.

Here's the Steelbook cover

It's maybe my favorite movie so I guess I have to rebuy it again.
It's currently $5 cheaper at Best Buy than Amazon $25.99 instead of $30.99

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

I'm glad I held off on buying the Blu-ray of Almost Famous a few weeks ago. I'm going to pre-order it at Best Buy for pick-up so hopefully I'll get one without dents in it. Amazon has been sending me Blu-rays and CDs in oversized bubble mailers and I have been getting damaged items lately.

Does the 4K SteelBook also come with remastered Blu-ray and extras?

It does have the extras, just not the Blu Rays. I am pretty sure your XSX will play UHD 4K discs in HD on a HDTV. I will check on my Xbox One X and my HDTV tomorrow.

One new feature is Rock School which I really want to see. Nancy Wilson and Peter Frampton took the cast members playing the band and taught them how to credibly perform as rock stars onstage. The story is well covered in the third episode of this amazing podcast series Origins : Almost Famous Turns Twenty I bet there are some really cool things in that feature.

Confirmed. It plays just like a Blu Ray on a game console that plays UHDs.

The music label is also using the movie's 4K release as an excuse to issue a super deluxe 5-CD soundtrack set personally overseen by Cameron Crowe.

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

5? That’s a bit much. I liked ‘Fever Dog”. And, of course the original songs and the whole soundtrack in general. Had 1 or 2 disc soundtrack once, a lot. Loved the movie even more, but 5 cds sounds like a lot and makes me think of Sopranos originally dvd briefcase portfolio with all of the music in I don’t remember how many discs. And I played them, liked them, but one and done. Not only do I not have desire, but would rather digital anyway.

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

I’m fine with the restored Blu-ray edition. Once I would of course gotten SteelBook and too bad blus not included, but it’s fine. I’m not big on Steels anymore. Couldn’t even tell you last I got. Probably a UK Marvel movie. Probably. Actually I think I got one more recently. I’m Not Afraid of Dark or something like that. Came out similar time to One Cut of the Dead, actually it was BB’s Casper for some reason. I really have no idea why and no desire to even watch it anytime soon...
