To MGM to MGM LeChiam! Fiddler on the Roof is going to be incredible! As for the other titles, a bit of a confusing mix there, United Artists has some great films that I think would sell better. The question is, with the news that Sony will be releasing MGM titles, will this higher output of BD titles continue there?
What no Teen Wolf Too? It's a showcase of the finest acting ever by Mr. Jason Bateman. But All dogs Go To Heaven and its sequel and Secret of Nimh is a good sign that more Don Bluth films are likely to come such as the American Tail films and ultimately the first Land Before Time. This is the most nostalgic year in Blu-Ray so far.
I'll pick up Material Girls and Legally Blonde 2. Even though I don't understand why the first isn't being released! I'll probably pick up others down the road. For some reason, I don't remember liking All Dogs that much as a child but maybe I'll give them a shot!
Some of the folks on here praising Nimh and ADGTH 1&2 would probably do well to rent the DVDs before you spend your cash on the blu-rays. I doubt it'll live up to how great you thought it was when you were 7.
@chiltonj, my third grade teacher read us that book so when they made the movie I was very excited and it was fantastic.
Ask ANYONE in animation and they will all tell you The Secret of N.I.M.H. was a return to form for animation. It shook Disney from their complacency and got them back on track after The Black Cauldron.
Also Don Bluth was my father's college roommate at UCLA so his films have extra resonance with me. Bring on Land Before Time and Titan A. E.!
Legally Blonde came out in 2001 - if they are releasing the far less popular and much loathed sequel, it can only mean they are planning a "10 Year Anniversay" edition of the first movie at some point this year. Though, it would have made more sense to release them simultaneously - I can't imagine the sequel will get much sales excitement on it's own.
Oh, and Teen Wolf + All Dogs 1 for me, though I do wish they would stick Teen Wolf Too with Teen Wolf like they did on DVD. Much like their release of Poltergeist 2 alone earlier this month (when the DVD featured both 2 and 3), it probably means we won't be seeing Teen Wolf Too (or Poltergeist 3) on Blu any time soon. I hope I'm wrong.
I might grab Fiddler when the price goes down. Love the movie, but don't see myself watching it all that often.
Regarding Paramount: They want BD to fail. That's why they put out few BDs and choose the mostly their B and even C grade titles with maybe one or two A category films a year just to look good.
Agree that Fiddler On The Roof deserves its own headline. My concern is that this film was "soft" and dark when I saw it in theatres. On BD if it's not mastered properly that softness could translate into a mushy lackluster image. Hopefully this won't be the case but I'd wait until a few reviews are in before ordering this one.
I never understand me on MGM. The could release a series that everyone is waiting for, but no.
So what are these bozos releasing!!!! yes "fidler on the roof!"............................................. my god.
No wounder this company almost did get out of business.
What other studio is releasing half of a series and they stop. And now they are giving the franchises distribution to another studio where we most likely must buy the entire series AGAIN!, who do MGM think they are anyway. ?
Do we REALLY need a film as bad as secret of nimh on blu-ray? It's incomprehensible, ugly, and juvenile. Fine for bland, mindless kiddie fodder, but hardly worth blu-ray....and there's simply no wonder it flopped.
It's only saving grace is it's a notch better than all dogs go to heaven--even if it pales to the insane brilliance of Rock-a-Doodle.
Yeah, Teen Wolf is a guilty pleasure I didn't expect for several years. The transformation scene in the bathroom with his father knocking on the door is classic Michael J. Fox ("Don't come in, I'm doing something." "You can tell me, son, I'll understand." "Uh, no Dad, not this time..."). Worth the upgrade, esp. without the awful, unfunny sequel.
Will Be Picking up Secret Of Nimh and both All Dogs films(although part 2 will be a blind buy) and Teen Wolf. MIght get Legally Blonde 2 since i like Reese Witherspoon but overall I dont remember that movie much.
