    The best man! The better man! [Wedding Singer]

    Looking forward to that one. Hopefully they'll address (if they can) the crackling that you can hear during some musical parts of the film. Or perhaps those parts were recorded "too hot" and nothing can be done. Who knows.

    Oh CRAP! What a disappointing assortment of bargain bin titles.

    American History X is the only one of these I'll ever have the desire to see again, but I don't need to own it.

    I'm 0 for 10 with this selection.

    BAH HUMBUG!

    I was really hoping The Maltese Falcon would be listed. Come on Warners, I've got my cash in hand, ready to buy.

    it is good to see them advertising "more great hi-def blu-ray releases coming soon" because there certainly aren't any pictured there

    2010 is looking to return to my library.

    Crossing my fingers Outland and Altered States are not too far behind...

    Nothing there for me.

    But you know, it's actually a good sign that they're starting to dip into more 'ordinary' territory along with more sure-fire "big" titles. You've got to start somewhere.

    Has WB produced any new features for its catalog titles? I think I already know the answer (which would be "no") but a Peter Hyams commentary and/or interview would be nice for 2010. Doesn't the DVD have a vintage EPK piece?

    (Personally, I'm waiting for Executive Decision... guilty pleasure.) [​IMG]

    I'll probably buy 2010 and The Wedding Singer......the other titles I really don't have much interest in as most are good enough on the DVDs I already have. I do appreciate that Warner is digging into their catalogue titles though. Keep 'em coming. [​IMG]

    Care to elaborate about "too hot" scenes and crackling? I didn't know about these issues.

    Warner Bros. will release 10 new Blu-ray discs on April 7th2009.

    Steven Seagal: Above the Law
    Stallone/Kurt Russell: Tango@Cash
    Schwarzenegger: Collateral Damage

    The other seven Warner titles are uninteresting for me[​IMG]
