WOOO! Forbidden Planet!

I hope it has all the extras from the 2-disc anniversary release, and more!

Matrix Reloaded separately, but not Revolutions as well? That's strange, because basically, I consider those two movies as Matrix II: Part 1 and Part 2. It's just basically a 4.5-5 hour sequel split up into two films.

Anyway, I might pick up Lost in Space and THX-1138. Gotta get my fix of tweenie Lacy Chabert as Penny.

Why the hell can't THX-1138 have the original cut? I want both cuts and every bonus feature available. Looks like the only way to see the original cut is by Laserdisc luckily I have that:)

Nice to see Forbidden Planet, THX 1138 & Mars Attacks

Would also like to see Warner re-release some of their CLASSIC hd-dvd titles to BR like Grand Prix & Mutiny On The Bounty

Mars Attacks! and Lost in Space. Haven't seen THX 1138, might consider a blind buy though.

Why is WB re-releasing A Scanner Darkly, lossless audio perhaps. Well, if that's true, I'd rather see a Speed Racer or Interview with the Vampire re-release.

Buying them all, but I want Outland and Westworld too.

Looks like they aren't doing the special edition box set for Forbidden Planet like they did for HD DVD. Good thing I held onto the box and just sold the disc.

Hopefully these movies will be priced reasonable. I believe I will pick up Lost in Space, such a guilty pleasure for me.

Thankfully THX-1138 didn't get a Digi Book release. Think I'll have to check it out. Probably pass on the rest (Forbidden Planet is okay, but the DVD was enough for me (not sure I ever want to see it again); Lost In Space, no thanks; Mars Attacks! sucked when it first came out, doubt it's gotten any better since then). Curious about what a re-release of A Scanner Darkly means... suspect SleeperAgent may be on the right track with lossless audio, but you never know with WB; doubtful I'd double-dip on it though.

Matrix Reloaded separate release is great news. I didn't care for Revolutions, so I'm not too bothered about it not getting released. Seems WB is treating it the same way Paramount treats Godfather 3. "If you want the crappy third film, you gotta buy the expensive box set."

I wonder why A Scanner Darkly re-release? I'm not complaining because I would love to have a lossless track and the movie is great but I would rather see The Aviator of Goodfellas get a loseless track. Oh well.

If A Scanner Darkly does get a lossless track (Yes, Please!) then hopefully that means they'll be re-releasing other films that have lossy tracks, like Speed Racer, with lossless. Hopefully Warner Bros. is realizing now that there are people not buying certain films because of this issue. I know there are a few I'd pick up in a heart beat if it wasn't for the lossy DD.

Why are they re releasing A Scanner Darkly? I just bought the current release for 7 bucks.

Glad about Matrix Reloaded.... I bought the first one digi book edition. Now i can get this one for cheap. And eventually the third!

Honestly, I dunno why WB would re-release A Scanner Darkly with lossless sound.... The 47 people holding out for a lossless audio track, and the 34 that would rebuy it to get lossless audio instead can't really be that big of an incentive for them to double-dip. Is there another PKD film coming out? (Love them myself.) Why this one and not Goodfellas when they had the chance? Maybe that's it. (WB: re-do T3 please, before I get around to importing it.)

Awesome, Mars Attacks is a must (I can't wait to hear Danny Elfman's great score in lossless especially the title theme). Forbidden Planet also a must, and never seen Lost in Space so will give it a rent first.

According to digitalbits, A Scanner Darkly is just going to be the same disc. Just getting a new promo push. [So, no lossless audio.]

I've been wating for THX-1138 to come out on BD for a long time; glad it's going to happen soon. I would've loved to see a digibook of that. That would be the main title I would be interested in from that list. Speaking of digibooks, it would be nice to see 2001: A Space Odyssey have such a book, or even a UCE. I'd snap that up in a heartbeat, given a reasonable price.

I never did get around to buying A Scanner Darkly, though I'd been meaning to. Now I'll wait until its reissued. Warner has been reissuing a few titles with (as far as I know) basically the same specs as before, but different cover graphics: Pale Rider and The Gauntlet come to mind.

THX 1138 is a really weird movie (not saying it sucks or it's bad). I have it on DVD. Anyway, isn't this the first title to come out on BD, by George Lucas? Maybe he is "testing the market" for his films and releasing them as he made them? If so, Star Wars might come soon.
But that is just a thought I got.
