My wish list is as follows: X Men Trilogy Bourne Trilogy Grindhouse Zodiac Aliens 1-3 Dollars trilogy Finding Nemo Incredibles Titanic Under the Tuscan Sun se7en I still buy catalog titles in SD. Much cheaper and some dont look much different. Im not rebuying LOTR or Star Wars in Blu. Not worth the repurchase.

What a list. I'll never forget Frailty. Who knew Bill Paxton could be so creepy. I have to ask. Would you actually purchase all of these titles on Blu-Ray disc? I would have to stagger that list over several years to avoid a divorce. Posted Image

Hi John, Yes, I would - assuming that they would be staggered over a reasonable period of time. I couldn't afford to buy them all at once. I always felt that Bill Paxton had it in him to do good work. Like Ben Affleck, though, his directing ability is superior to his acting ability. Brad

It's all about what you like. Besides, the more Blu Ray releases the better. John

Beautiful Girls.

With "October Road" creators Scott Rosenberg (the screenwriter of this film), Josh Appelbaum, and André Nemec now behind the British television remake of "Life on Mars", Disney; this is the perfect time for a high definition release. Also, an HD transfer has been made. There's a high demand for this, as evident by this thread here on HTF:

http://www.hometheat....t-reissue.html

So once again I ask you, please bring "Beautiful Girls" to Blu-ray, and finally give the current OOP DVD, an anamorphic transfer with extras along with the original theatrical trailer (in 1080p on Blu-ray, please).

Considering the rights to the various Highlander films are all over the place a trilogy set (or even a quadrilogy or a 5-movie set) is at the moment out of the question. You may however find comfort in that Studio Canal in France is scheduled to release the first Highlander film on Blu-Ray on October 23 this year according to Amazon.fr.

The Germans have also been so kind as to supply us with the original cut of Highlander 5 on Blu-Ray, if you are so inclined. Posted Image

My short answer is: everything. Don't even look @ the SD section any more. I can't stand it. (Exception - The Three Stooges Collection - took so long to get 'em in chronological order, I doubt HD is anytime soon).

But hopeful for:

Jaws
Star Wars (original trilogy)
Donnie Darko
Weird Science
Ferris Bueller
Breakfast Club
LOTR
Batman (Tim Burton)
Batman Returns
My Favorite Year
Eagles: Farewell Tour 1
REM - Perfect Square
Justice League Seasons 2, 3 and 4
Incredibles
X-Men Trilogy
Fish Called Wanda
Local Hero

Grease
Saturday Night Fever
(with the deleted scenes that were left off the last DVD release, preferably)
Back to the Future
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Murder By Death
(*ahem* with those 4 deleted scenes that were only in the TV version) Posted Image
Harold and Maude (I mean, who doesn't want to see Ruth Gordon in Hi-Def!) Posted Image
Young Frankenstein
The Muppet Movie
A Hard Day's Night
Help!
Yellow Submarine
Airplane!
Victor/Victoria
Sleuth (1972)
Deathtrap
Xanadu
The Wizard of OZ
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Phantom of the Paradise
(with some decent extras this time, please!)
The Abominable Dr. Phibes (and the sequel)

And in the "yeah, right, don't hold your breath" category:

I agree with Clue. The production design of that film is fantastic and would lend itself well to HD. Not to mention making it easier to follow all the little details. Add to that. Tequila Sunrise (1988) Klute (1971) The Parallax View (1974) The Budd Boetticher/Randolph Scott westerns The Maltese Falcon(1941) The Big Sleep (both versions) Escape from New York (1981) The Thing (1951) The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) It Came from Outer Space (1953) The Ghost Breakers (1940) Fantastic Voyage (1966) The Andromeda Strain (1971) Jason and the Argonauts (1963) Logan's Run (1976) The Three Musketeers (1973) The Four Musketeers (1974) Rebel Without a Cause (1955) Chinatown (1974) The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) (good excuse to restore it) Psycho (1960) 12 Angry Men (1957) 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954) The Satan Bug (1965) And any of the old Republic Serials Doug
