It had a release date and now I see it's in the TBA category. Crap.
I don't remember hearing about a release date for Tremors. What was it, and where did you hear about it?
I'm pretty sure I saw here on the HTF. I thought I saw it on the HTF release schedule, but now it shows at TBA.
I have to agree. There has never been an announcement for Tremors on Blu-ray. There are many who have been asking for the movie series to be released on Blu-ray yet Universal has to make any kind of announcement. What you may be referring to is the TV series. There was some indication, when Tremors the Television Series was originally announced for release, before it was delayed, that the series would be released to DVD and Blu-ray.
Fans confuse the movie series with the television series.
The title was announced by HIGH DEF-DIGEST a while ago....just before the release date it was moved to "Release dates pending." Too bad, i was really looking forward to the title.
There's another DTV sequel coming this year http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1345730/
They're probably gonna time them together.
Drat! I just watched Tremors in HD (HDNet maybe?) and it was beautiful.
I remember seeing an April release date on it at one time. Not sure what happened to it.
I'm glad I hung onto the HD-DVD.
Yeah, that time period sounds right.
The HD-DVD of TREMORS is simply the worst "High Definition" disc release- outside of a few upconverts*- that I've ever seen. To say it looks terrible is an understatement. The massive amount of digital filtering applied along with thick, THICK edge-enhancement is disgusting. Hopefully this "delay" means that universal is actually doing a new scan of the film, although given their track record I doubt it.
* Although to be honest, I actually think some upconverts- the Studio Canal HD-DVD of THE FOG for example- look better than the atrocity that is TREMORS on HD-DVD.
Obviously you haven't seen Koch's release of Gulliver's Travels. Next to that, Tremors looks like it was filmed yesterday.
My comments have nothing to do with whether TREMORS "looks like it was filmed yesterday", it has to do with the HD-DVD being an utterly atrocious looking digital mess that I hope Universal doesn't transport to Blu-ray. And no, I haven't seen that much reviled GULLIVER'S TRAVELS Blu-ray, and even if I did it wouldn't make the HD-DVD of TREMORS any less awful.
The BRD release of Tremors was this spring, but it never became available for preorder by any of the retailers. Something obviously, came up in preventing it's release.
As far as the HD DVD of the same title, let's just say my negative opinion of the disc isn't as strong as the previous poster even though, I agree to a certain agree with his criticisms.
