Pretty slick (scum-baggy) that they used Ashton's and Amy's scenes from the original Butterfly Effect in the trailer for The Butterfly Effect 2, which they're not in at all. "Maybe we can get people to think Ashton and Amy Smart are in the sequel..."
Ten times hurray for HARD TO KILL!!! This has been my most wanted film on Blu-ray ever since I got into BDs in the summer of 2008. It's also my avatar pic so I am absolutely stoked to get it on day one. With this, I now complete my 6 classic Seagal film collection on Blu-ray Might get Next of Kin as well...
I'm all over Mean Streets and Murder in the First. The Butterfly Effect, Hard to Kill and Cellular I want as long as I find for the right price. I have never seen Next Of Kin, but I hear good things. Just Cause and A Perfect Murder are just ok, maybe when they get to 5 dollar bin one day.
Mean Streets, Just Cause and Hard to Kill for me. Thanks Warner. I already have Butterfly Effect (Alliance version) and I'm quite happy with it, and even though I really dig A Perfect Murder, it doesn't really have a lot of replay value.
Cellular, Hard To Kill & Next Of Kin...3 more movies to remove from my wish list. Haven't seen Next Of Kin since the days of VHS. I only wish that Warner would release the rest of Seagal's films (On Deadly Ground, The Glimmer Man, Fire Down Below & Exit Wounds) & give Under Seige 1 & 2 new transfers (I might be pushing my luck but oh well)
I'm down with Frequency. Outland, Coma and Altered States I have never seen but have always heard decent stuff. I will stay FAR AWAY from the abomination that is Spawn. That is a movie that needs a reboot!
I would dearly love to upgrade my dvd of Outland but I am afraid the source material may be very limiting. It is a very dark movie and the special effects are certainly not high budget. Still, if it improves on the SD version, I can't wait.
Ah, they added Brainstorm! Doctorossi, I'm wishing they'd do a good transfer for the main part of the movie, and then just do a total 4K, 8K, whateverK, month-long absolutely-best-perfect update for the memory images...
what happened to "Bad Moon", "Selena", "House on Haunted Hill", "Valentine", "Angel Eyes", 'Thirteen Ghosts", "Queen of the Damned", "Eight Legged Freaks", "Kangaroo Jack", "Looney Tunes: Back in Action", "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed", "A Cinderella Story", "Racing Stripes", "The Cell", "How to Eat Fried Worms", "Monster-in-Law", "Rush Hour 2", "Son of the Mask", and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning".
All this talk of Outland, Brainstorm and Altered States I may have to get them. But Murder in the First and Mean Streets come first. Actually to be honest the titles that WB listed aren't a bad mix. The weakest ones are The Astronaut's Wife and A Perfect Murder, but not horrible movies. While I will stay away from The Butterfly Effect 2 and Spawn (sorry fans but I HATE that movie, but love the comic), it was just watered down for me. The Crow came out years earlier and it was R. Why they didn't go the R rated I guess was just a money decision but no matter how you cut it, it's just not up to par. I think if a remake/reboot were made with the right people and director it could be in the upper echelon of comic book movies if done right. Just my opinion. I know I like movies that some people can't stand.
At long last, the blu-ray release of Martin Scorsese's classic, Mean Streets, with Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel, will soon be mine, as will a film I remember well from my childhood: Michael Crichton's Coma, with Genevičve Bujold and Michael Douglas. Down the line, I may also pick up Douglas Trumbull's Brainstorm with Natalie Wood and Christopher Walken.
"Outland" looked and sounded great at the Cinema back in 1981. No home video has done it justice.
"Altered States" was equally impressive, though I do recall a fair amount of grain (please no DNR)!
"Brainstorm" has always been problematic on home video, since it bounces between 1.66:1 (real-world) and recorded memory sequences at 2.20:1! I hated it when most of the movie was shown pillar-boxed on an early video transfer.
I will also gladly add "SPAWN" to my collection as well. God those early CGI effects are gonna look dated! What can be said of Warner's horrid choices for artwork on these? Nothing positive...
