    So Warner are releasing 40-50 catalogue titles next year on Blu, so how about five titles you'd like: She Wore A Yellow Ribbon - this should look fantastic on Blu Scaramouche - maybe include the silent version like they did on the French DVD release The Curse Of Frankenstein The Horror Of Dracula - I'm sure they've got the framing sorted out by now The Great Race I don't think anyone has started a similar thread, I had a quick look.

    My five are


    The Great Race

    Raintree County

    Ryan's Daughter

    The Haunting (1963)

    Ice Station Zebra


    I guess I tend to enjoy the epics.

    For me:


    The Great Race

    Gypsy

    The Nun's Story

    Love Me or Leave Me

    Cabaret


    BTW, they announced late last year that Singin' in the Rain, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and Camelot would be released in 2012, so there are three of their 40-50 releases right there.

    That's a good start, but if I actually sat down and tried to list every Warner movie that I want on dvd, it'd be a hell of a lot more than 5 films, let me tell you! I know they'll neglect some of my personal favorites, but they'll surely put out at least a few of them. And I think I'd better find a second job just to keep up with all these blu-rays that are suddenly flooding out this year and next...

    40-50 titles in a year sounds pretty good, until you realize that's for all catalog, meaning titles of the 90's, 80's... In the end we know most titles will be 90's movies. The pre-1960 titles released will be like 5, as always on blu-ray. Which is ironic, since most people who get excited anticipating catalog releases are usually old movie lovers. Even all your lists posted so far fit that, although they do include some 60's movies, which still is quite close to that.

    Yeah, expect to be disappointed. After Bill Hunt wrote about the coming 40-50 titles he said look forward to seeing "Dave" and "The American President" in 2012


    Oh Boy! I am so not excited!


    Oh and WB anounced in 2010 that "Singing in the Rain", "Camelot" and "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" are coming out in 2012. Yeah, thanks a bunch WB for letting us know TWO years in advance (I don't even know where I'll be living I two years let alone start planning my disc purchases then) Plus I only buy WB disc when they are heavily discounted so it'll be another year - and by that time the newness factor has worn off and I usually pass on them. Better start saving those pennies now



    Oh Well, that's money I can put to something other than a Warner Bros Blu-ray disc....Maybe Paramount will be where my money goes

    and remember George said Black and White doesn't sell - so no 30, 40 or 50 films (most WB films from that period were Black and White)


    If you want a bunch of films from 1980 through 2010 you may be excited but the rest...come guys, who you kidding?

    Any Fred and Ginger Movies. Also I would like a good copy of Raintree County. I am still hoping my DVR doesn't give out as I have a copy of Raintree on that which I treasure.

    Hoping that WB will do something special for the 50th anniversary of The Music Man...after the recent Blu-ray issue disappeared so fast.

    I thought people were listing film on the 2012 Warner list Oh well,if we're all just speculating..then.. Bette Davis-DANGEROUS (1935 ) Alcoholism has never been so sexy. A Scorsese favorite of mine AFTER HOURS (1985 )-great extras on the regular dvd THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR-Yul Brynner-post-apocalyptic film set in New-york 2012. I'm reading the Wikipedia list of Warner films,so it could be a list of 50 and not just 5.
