    None of the big studios seem to release many catalogue titles in the UK, maybe we're not a very good market, in which case I can't blame them. As long as they're not region locked & are cheap & easy to import (which they nearly all are), then it's no big deal.

    HOUSE OF WAX, but only -- ONLY -- if MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM is included in HD as well. The noirs are a possibilitiy. CHRISTMAS STORY if they do an all new scan and treat it well, give it the attention it deserves (I don't have the existing bd, btw). The MAD MAX set is a possibility, but I'll have to wait for reviews and comparisons. GOODFELLAS, but again -- no sale if not treated as well as it deserves.

    IMO, Goodfellas needs more work than the last two BD releases.

    Universal has released several catalogue titles in the UK as I bought them there instead of here because they were cheaper.

    It looks like I'll be spending some money on Warner releases next year.

    Only the Big Parade jumps out to me as a must buy. The rest I have on DVD, so I'll be waiting for discounts to upgrade them. :(

    It might be too early to speculate but will WB be including existing supplements on their Paramount releases?
    Or is this going to be one of those "Hold on to your DVD for the extras?" situations? :)

    I don't know I never asked any questions about supplements in my conversations with Warner and Paramount executives. With that said, I expect some supplements, whether they are existing ones, that I don't know.

    Some great titles there.

    What on earth could be on the 40th Anniversary edition of The Exorcist that we don't already have on the current BD?! (I'm guessing a re-pack of the current discs, with bonus content like soundtrack CD, film cell, poster, crucifix, can of pea soup, etc...)

    I'm fully aware that my next statement makes me a complete heathen and philistine, but I'd prefer to see a BD of the 1980 version of The Jazz Singer...

    From what I heard, a certain Warner executive likes these Anniversary releases and has stated that people buy them. I guess the marketing world with potential consumers is much larger than our internet world on HTF and other HT-related sites.

    We are lucky, THE EXORCIST could have been formatted in 3D for this release. I guess that is what is in store for the 50th Anniversary release.

    Will THE EXORCIST be a remaster or simply a repackage?

    Im getting all the titles that were on DVD in the Gangster collection. Not sure why Roaring Twenties or Angels with Dirty Faces didnt make the cut :)

    Both are better choices than Petrified Forest, but it probably has more to do with Bogart's role as secondary in those two films with Cagney being the main gangster. They didn't want Cagney being the lead in three of the titles.

    Agreed. Maybe this one will do well enough that they can do a Volume 2 (or I guess it would be 3?) with Angels, Roaring Twenties, High Sierra, and G-Men. I appreciate that the 'Contemporary Gangsters' might sell better, but I personally have no interest in any post-Godfather gangster movies.
    I'm very much looking forward to having the James Dean films on Blu-Ray as well (especially Rebel).
    It's very disappointing that there isn't a single Errol Flynn film in the mix, however.
