Default Re: The High-Def Thread, Now With 95% Less HD DVD - Part 1

I think the legacy collections are definitive but I'm really tempted by the restorations. I'm curious to see how well they can do with Frankenstein. I still have the Frankenstein dvd collection. I love the box art and documentaries.

Also wasn't expecting them to release all the originals together. I wonder if they'll do a volume two for the sequels or separate releases.


Another thing I've read is this set will be available in the UK for half the price. I might wait this one out and see where it goes.

That set looks great. I'm tempted to buy this film again.


The US Terminator set doesn't offer any new transfers so it looks doubtful for the UK.

JAWS looks fantastic on blu ray. I can't wait for Titanic.

8-Film Quentin Tarantino Blu-ray Collection Announced!
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=94869
Quote:
Tarantino XX contains eight films chosen by Tarantino to illustrate the first 20 years of his career, featuring the films that helped define his early success, including Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Kill Bill Vol. 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds. To complete the stunning high definition 10-disc set, the Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection also features two discs with five hours of all-new bonus material, highlighted by a critics’ retrospective on Tarantino’s groundbreaking catalog of films and “20 Years of Filmmaking” that contains interviews with critics, stars and other masters of cinema.





I'd be excited for this, except I just bought every Tarantino film on blu ray last month.

I might actually buy that. I don't own any of his films on Blu-ray, and I don't even own a copy of True Romance.

I don't have True Romance, and I'd like the bonus discs. I may just trade in my Tarantino individual blu rays for this, but we'll see.

Just picked up the Walmart special edition of Avengers that comes with the graphic novel. Really nice for the price.

Anyone know if that Region free UK version of Jurassic Park is the same transfer as the American release?

I have the region free JP and whilst I have no idea if the transfer is the same as the American version the picture quality is incredible.

Thanks for the response. I decided to buy it since there isn't any news of Universal releasing the films seperately in the US.

I have a really stupid question, so forgive me for asking. What is Criterion? I see it all the time in relation to Blu Ray movies. I just never knew what that was all about.

They give some of the best transfers a movie can have and usually have great extras that beat most other DVDs/Blu-rays.

For the most part they usually stick to releasing foreign films as well as art type films but also release other movies that they feel are special in some way or another.

A few examples of non foreign/art films are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Game, The Killing(early Kubrick film) and Island of Lost Souls.

Basically, if there's a movie you want on Blu-ray and it's getting a Criterion release...get the Criterion version.

Look through the library and see if there's anything you might like.
