Seems like a short period between going in the vault and coming back out again, at least compared to Disney. It makes the whole thing look pretty silly in my opinion. It's not like demand would have really suffered much if they simply left them on the shelves, and re-released them later next year. All this does is piss off people who want to buy the movies, and benefit resellers who are likely buying up these movies all now to sell to these poor souls.

Game of Thrones has finally been dated! Amazon has it set for March 6 and also has the cover art. About damn time.

Indiana Jones collection with all four movies (yes, I know everyone's take on Crystal Skull), out this fall:

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8283

Let's hope Paramount does what we had with the Alien collection and make the movies individually for people that don't want Crystal Skull.

I also hope that the movies are remastered correctly and they look good on BD. No reason they couldn't look great on BD.

EDIT: Apparently up for pre-order on Amazon, no date, for $74.99:
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B000NQRE9Q/

Also, don't bother trading in the DVD sets to Amazon unless they're new and sealed, as they have a $0.25 trade-in value if not new and sealed.

To get the first three (1 and 3, really), I'll gladly pay the premium of the 4th. I was wondering about the status of this set just the other day.

I don't remember if I asked this or not. If I buy the 3D version of the new Piranha 3D movie, will it still play in 2D effectively?

I only have one 3D TV and I'm pretty sure I won't be watching it there very often, but I'd love to at least once. The rest of the time, it'd be viewed on my non-3D TV with probably a non-3D blu-ray player.

Hopefully it makes sense.

From the Amazon discussion, 2D is included on the disc and is the default.

I recently heard that some of the Studio Ghibli films are finally being put on Blu-ray. Does anyone know which ones are currently available/what the future releases are going to be?

I know that Nausicaa and Ponyo have been around for a while and that Castle in the Sky's coming out next month, but I'd kill for some of the others (not that there's a single bad film in the bunch).

Oh, I've never heard of Whisper of the Heart. Should I be ashamed of that? Looks like it's yet another well-reviewed Miyazaki film, whatever the case. I knew about Arrietty, too, but I'm gonna hold out on that one 'till it drops a little bit. ;)

If you don't mind buying used, GoHastings has a 33% off sale right now and that makes the movies you've listed a bit cheaper than Amazon's prices (I think - haven't factored in the sales tax or shipping costs). Here's a link to the topic discussing it:

I'm not sure if everything GoHastings sells is complete, though. Sorry!

Are you talking about the new BD of the original movie? Or the remake of the movie? Both look solid to me.

Can anyone recommend a good region free BD player? I'm looking to import some BBC TV stuff but need a player that can handle 50mhz.

We've had a lot of luck with the (relatively cheap) Samsung E5700. We also have an LG BD570 which has held up well for the past 2 1/2 years.

The Samsung E5300 also handles the 50hz to 60hz conversion, but doesn't have the wireless capabilities of the E5700. It's also on sale at Best Buy this week for $79.99.

I was referring to the new BD of the original Total Recall. Also i got The Raid today and wow awesome movie!

The remake of Total Recall was a big bag of meh. Kate Beckinsale is just silly hot in it though.

Whispers of the Heart is Ghibi, but not Miyazaki, he isnt the only director at the studio. Whisper of the Heart, ive not actual seen, but always hear it's good.

Warner is re-releasing the Ultimate cut of Watchmen, so if you have a copy it might be best to sell it now while the resale value is still high ;)

So tempting, but I already have the vanilla Watchmen BD, the hardcover graphic novel, and the Ultimate Cut DVD. Not sure I can justify getting this...

Looks like this is just UC Watchman on BD + theatrical of the movie on DVD + UV digital copies + hardcover of the graphic novel + collectable packaging.

Since I have UC already, don't need theatrical on DVD or the UV DCs and have the graphic novel, it's a pass for me.

For those that don't have the UC, it might be worth picking up, though I think the MSRP is a bit painful since some of us picked up UC at around $30.

I love Watchmen, but I just didn't think splicing in the Black Freighter stuff would add anything to the movie (honestly, I didn't think it added much to the graphic novel). Am I wrong?

The pic of the box the set comes in looks like it should include a Watchmen Monopoly or Shoot and Ladders board game.

Think I'll just keep the UC BD set I got as I like that packaging better.

I've read numerous accounts of people that have seen it, and now refuse to watch it any other way. I've only seen them separately, and I wasn't a huge fan of the animation style of black freighter, but I am still curious to see the whole thing. The UC also adds transition scenes of the black kid at the newsstand, which isn't found in any other version.

It's the same as most of the other UCE's from WB (Casablanca, Ben Hur, Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka, etc..)
