    sadly its the end of Blu Ray for me folks, i'm going back to standard DVD for now, I hope to return in the future, its great site for reading all your comments and the upcoming news, I just feel the real good movies are not coming out quick enough, evey day I read about lots of crap films been planned for release, no Star Wars, Indy, Martix, aliens, lord of the Rings etc....
    Also since the format war ended the priceses have edged upwards here in Ireland, I remember reading one of your comments when someone predicted this there was an angry response from most member saying this will never happen...an here its happening, its just too expensive for me right now on my salary, hopefully in the near future I will return as the picture quality in bluray is unmatched in every way.
    gud luck to all u out there, u have provided some very interesting readings.....

    Transformers SUCKS....... and you list "The Matrix and Lord of the Rings" as the 'good titles' so you lost all your credibility with me.......

    As long as they focus on the AQ/PQ I'll keep buying blu, the releases will come faster.....

    where were you whining sissies in 1997 when the rest of us were waiting for DVD releases.... why do you think this is any different.....

    And to think, just a few months ago people were dropping 30 to 50 bucks on Blades of Glory on ebay, just so they said they could "Own It." P.O.S. movie anyways. As Beta Man says, just wait long enough and you'll have everything eventually. Everyone is so impatient.

    I imagine that Shooter and Transformers are getting an overhaul. Those are the two biggies at this point for Paramount, and they are probably making them above reference quality. As a gesture of goodwill.

    Please keep in mind that this list isn't necessarily final, this is just the Blu-ray titles that are currently listed in the Paramount press site. I think it's likely that Paramount will introduce as many of the previously released titles as possible.

    I'm interested in Babel, Coming to America, There Will Be Blood, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, The Untouchables, and Cloverfield.

    Yes Transformers would have been nice but I think there starting lineup far outshines Universal's sad plans. I think they're saving Transformers and making absolutely sure it doesn't dissappoint Bluray fans. Plus if they release later this year (can anyone say HOLIDAY Season) then they're guaranteed to sell a ridiculous of copies of the movie.

    Transformers will probably the best selling Bluray title when its released. So everyone calm down...

    Anyways thats just me.

    So how badly are they out of stock for "Shooter"? daaaaang! This movie is starting to piss me off!!! Its gonna take an act of congress before we can ll buy it at a regular $19.99 price!

    But...on the bright side, we are getting Blades of Glory, which was ripped away from our hands literary a few days before its release. Plus all the other discontinued titles and new releases, so I am overall happy

    Everyone needs to be patient with Transformers. Perhaps Michael Bay has his hands on this release
    and is planning something special for the Blu-ray version? After all, he was the strongest advocate of
    Blu-ray. He just may be planning a reward for all of us!

When or if Transformers sees a release, I would buy it and that's it! I will not be buying anything of theirs unless it's a Transformers sequel. Other than that they've lost one supporter.

    Regarding Transformers according to http://www.hddvd.com/ they say:

    On Tuesday, Paramount announced a strategy similar to Universal’s about Blu-ray releases for the year. It consists mainly of putting out new titles “day and date” (meaning they come out the same time as) with their DVD versions, and then getting caught up on catalog titles a little more slowly. They’ll kick off their re-entry to Blu-ray a few weeks from now on May 20 with Bee Movie, Face/Off and Next.

    This means that Michael Bay and the many legions of his fans, as well as a few dozen Blu-ray owners, will apparently have to wait a little longer to see Transformers on Paramount’s Blu-ray release slate. Likewise, many Trekkies will have to wait and see when the first and second seasons of the original series discs come out in high-def.

    It looks like some of the Blu-ray titles that had been taken off shelves when Paramount went HD DVD-exclusive last year will be returning to shelves on May 20, including Blades of Glory, Babel, Aeon Flux, The Warriors, and Black Snake Moan.

    This is the wrong mindset and Paramount will loose a lot of money this way.

    Beta man, if someone saying that Lord of the Rings is one of the good titles makes them lose credibility with you, you must be very lonely being one of the few with any real credibility. Those are great movies, and most people would agree. The Matrix I agree sucks, but you say Transformers sucks as well? Sorry but I think you are on your own with that one.
