what the title says basically. personally I would love to see 1922's Nosferatu on blu ray, maybe not on its own seeing as how short it is, perhaps it could be a release of the 1970's remake and contain the 1922 version in the special features? i am quite curious to see it.

Clive Barker's Nightbreed.

I know that doesn't interest many people. But I would love to see how it was INTENDED to be. It was hacked to pieces by Fox studios on its release, and Clive Barker didn't have a say. So yeah, an uncut DVD/blu ray of that would be great.

The Lord of the Rings. Just imagine the already epic epicness 10 times more epic on BluRay in HD. Epic!

It baffles me as to why Paramount have yet to release Polanski's Chinatown on Blu-ray. Also, I'm hoping there'll be a UK release of Blue Velvet in the near future. There's clearly a HD master available as I believe a 25th Anniversary Edition arrives in the US tomorrow (accompanied by fifty minutes of deleted scenes!), but I'm unsure as to who owns the rights in the UK. Fortunately, the majority of my favourites are already available on the format.

My most waited blu-ray releases were the Star Wars saga and the LOTR extended editions. Both are out now. I am yet to buy LOTR (it's so damn expensive :(), but SW was a disappointment because apparently George Lucas has tampered with the original trilogy yet again. Bummer. :(

The special edition to Titanic needs a re-release. I owned the original on DVD and while it was a good film, they goofed on the resolution transfer. (i.e. low-res choppyness in widescreen format)

You do know that both the original cuts aswell as the extended cut have already been released on Blu-ray..? :p

Great choice, but which version have you seen in that case if you think it's short..? I own the remasterd version which runs for 98 minuts, and that's not counting the PAL DVD speedup of 4% aswell as the fact that the movie is being played on DVD's at the wrong framerate, because the movement of the characters is unnatural fast... If everything would be right the movie lasts a good two hours! :p


Pan's Labyrinth


Is already avalible in most country's ;)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Moulin Rouge.
Scary Movie.
All are already out, I assume you mean the original TCM which has also been released quite a while ago :)

My most waited blu-ray releases were the Star Wars saga and the LOTR extended editions. Both are out now. I am yet to buy LOTR (it's so damn expensive :(), but SW was a disappointment because apparently George Lucas has tampered with the original trilogy yet again. Bummer. :(
Yes... Yes he did, but also changed a couple of things to the prequel trilogy (why doesn't anyone have some love for these movies. There not great, but not as horrible as everyone makes them out to be.). He completly replaced the puppet Yoda from Phantom Menace, and made a couple of other changes to Episode I and II nothing to special. Although Episode III is exactly like how it was in theatures, which must be a first for any Star Wars movie.
The changes made to the Original Trilogy are stupid, but I'll be honest I barely noticed them except the one where there were rocks added infront of R2-D2 when he is hiding from the Sand people, mostly because it's obvious CGI and the rocks dissapear the next shot R2 comes out of hiding (great continuity :rolleyes:). The sound que's that have been changed though... Good god, the new cry of Obi-wan is hilariously bad, and Darth Vader's: "No... NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!" Are just completly out of place. It's a movie, it's ment to be: "Show don't tell.".

Ow yeah, and Han almost shoots first again. Maybe on the 3D re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-releases we finally get that character fix :p

I wanted the original Star Wars Trilogy (with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford) in Blu-Ray, which released not more than 3 months back here in Australia...

About Blu-Rays... now that someone mentioned The Lion King, I want Aladdin and Tarzan!

Yeah, some of the changes in classic Star Wars were bad, but I shrugged it off. When Obi-Wan did his battle cry to scare off the sand people, I almost fell out of my chair. Like wtf? It's just... unfathomable coming from that old man. XD

There's more good than bad I reckon, the picture quality is excellent.


I love the prequel Star Wars, Phantom Menace is my most favorite SW ever! The cast, the setting, the story plot - they're perfect. You can just ignore Jar Jar, he's not really that big of a deal

I managed to ignore him entirely, untill Episode II where he gave the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine the power to use the Clone Army. So in other words, he was the reason the entire galaxy went down the crapper http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc405/ePape88/gniffel.gif

There's more good than bad I reckon, the picture quality is excellent.

I'm going to be the asshole here and say the picture quality on the 6 movies goes all over the place with a screwed up first movie (remember I'm talking about the transfer not the movie), a very good second one, an insanely great third one, and sadly enough back to decend with part IV, V and VI. I'm amazed that these transfers came from the same 2K scans that they had used for the DVD releases, which was the same one as they had used for the, hold on tight... Laserdisc re-re-re-re-releases. Was George really that lazy to get a 8K scanner and remaster the movie's properly, or atleast get having gotten a 4K scanner.
The bloody: Wizard of Oz got an astounding 8K transfer and remastering, while the previous DVD releases came from a 4K transfer with it's own seperate remastering.

While the image quality is good overall, I was actually quite dissapointed with the final outcome... But that's mostly because I've seen: The Wizard of Oz which is 40 years older and has a ten times better remastering, and then let's not mention the 1925 version of: The Phantom of the Opera which looks about the same at it's best as parts of IV, V and VI in quality, and that's a movie that was shot on Nitrate!


But my personal pick would have to be any silent film that is availible. Nosferatu, Frankenstein (1910 version) and all those other wonderfull gems :D

@Ozzman - As you live in the US, I'd suggest picking up the triple feature on one disc of 6 7 and 8 released by Alliance. The single releases by Echo Bridge are horrendous apparently. In the UK it's all I can pick as they're region free, but the Alliance one is US and Canada only :(

Batman (1989) and Batman Returns, with Michael Keaton (if they haven't been released in Blu-Ray)

Superman: The Movie (1977) with Christopher Reeve. The best there was, is and will ever be.

Probably old classics like The Sound Of Music and Singin' In The Rain.

OK, lol all you want, I grew up with stuff like that!

So in other words, he was the reason the entire galaxy went down the crapper http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc405/ePape88/gniffel.gifWell, he kinda proposed that Chancellor Palpatine be given power to use the clones. It's still the dunderheads in the Senate that voted him lol. But yeah, the whole Senates are dumb that they're agreeing with Jar Jar Binks. :p

The transfers themselfs aren't really bad, with exception of Episode I which had Digital Noise Reduction, Edge enhancement and couple of other problems. The problems I have with the Original Trilogy, like I said it isn't neccasary the quality, but that there are remasterings that have been many times better on movies that were many years older. And ofcourse like I said that this transfer comes from the same source as the Laserdisc releases from 15 years ago...
I'm just dissapointed that they used such an old transfer for a remastering rather then a brand new scan.


Agreed with Wizard of Oz though, it looks absolutely amazing. Judy Garland is just so precious.:cln:

I recently saw: The Wiz, and damn Judy Garland kicks Diana Ross's ass so hard... Although I love Michael Jackson and Nipsey Russell more as the characters they portray then the actors of the original movie. Judy Garland seriously makes: The Wizard of Oz an amazing piece of film :D

Final Fantasy (XI or XII?) - Advent Children, if it hasn't been done already.

Remember watching it as a kid on Animax and loving the fantastic details in the CGI used in the movie... I was probably 14 or 15... this is when Assassin's Creed came out... so around... 2006 or 2007?
