    Awesome Charlie!

    All the best with the project. When it is released (in the US) ditto to what Mike said above.


    It's nice that you have the flexibility to do both things. I hope you get to do more feature films in the future.


    If your directing is anything like your DVD work.... there just might be an Oscar in your future somewhere down the road. I hope so, anyway.

    Thanks again and again...

    Regards,

    Dara

    Would you kindly pass along the word Ridley Scott should re-release KINGDOM OF HEAVEN with AVC instead of MPEG2, seamless branching for the Theatrical (for completists) and a second disc as a BD-50 with all the supplements. That's the only reason as to why I'm holding off on the current Blu-ray.
    And damn right I'd go to see a film of yours if you ever made one in cinemas.

    Seconding this. Will there be a disc replacement program which addresses the DNR/EE? All you'd need to do is take the newer 2005 master derived from the Extended Edition print and use that for both cuts. Here's hoping you'll let Rid know about this.
    Although it has DNR/EE, I'll still be purchasing this only to support a remaster WITHOUT ANY DNR/EE applied. Unleash hell at Universal for this release.

    EDIT: Here's a helpful link:

    Hi Charlie,

    Just adding my voice to this recent development. I know that there are things out of your control and I'm sure what happened to this transfer is one of them. You have always produced the highest quality product and obviously care and love these films.

    If you have contacts at Paramount you can convince to examine this issue that would be greatly appreciated. This is a wonderful film that has been given subpar treatment by Paramount, especially given that they're debuting it under the "Sapphire Series" moniker. You'd think that would be indicative of higher quality, no?

    Anyway, thanks for everything that you do, and thank you in advance for any help you can provide in this matter.

    Best,
    Carlo Medina

    Ugh, a rebranding a la Gangs of New York. At least the word was out early on that title and I managed to avoid it, but I purchased this one. Luckily I think I bought Gladiator as part of that "special deal" when it came out with another "Sapphire" title, so I think I'm out only about $10 with the repurchase. Wait a sec...come to think of it, Sapphire Series was a new brand, so they're going to rebrand a new brand? Double ugh,

    If they really want to show contrition (and when was the last time a corporation did that?) they should offer at least a silent exchange programs, if not an outright one.

    Or heck, just include a "Previous Blu Ray Owners get a $20 rebate." That would take the sting out of the purchase.
