On May 3, all Miramax movies previously released on Blu-ray by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will be re-released by Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This will reassure enthusiasts who feared that some or all of these titles could go out of print. List price is generally $19.99, except for Adventureland and No Country for Old Men (Collector's Edition), which are $24.99. The studio has confirmed to Blu-ray.com that in most cases, the discs themselves will be substantively identical, with the same special features.
This is a good move by Lionsgate to release all the existing Miramax blus and ensure uninterrupted availability of that Miramax's strong lineup. I also like that the prices will be more reasonable and competitive than under Disney. Maybe some of them will be reissued, down the line, with better transfers (though I don't really expect that from Lionsgate) -- just a wish for certain films.
The films from that list I most want to pick up are Hero, The Queen and both parts of Kill Bill (which I wish they would release in a single package already).
Instead of re-releasing Kill Bill vol. 1 & 2, how about just releasing THE WHOLE BLOODY AFFAIR!!! It would make a helluva lot more sense than re-releasing something that's been out forever that many people have held off buying because of the inevitable Bloody Affair release (me being one of those many). Just frickin' do it already, we've already been waiting for wwwaaaaaayyyyyy too long!!! We got Grindhouse, now we need Kill Bill dammit!
