good news on the Gauntlet, hopefully it won't be the same transfer as on the SDDVD it needs some work.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

maybe he included Blow, because thats coming too.

but why put a total on a headline when plenty more then 6 are coming.
also maybe confusing to people looking might be the "Gaultlet" what movie is that.

Under Siege 2 is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures, and for the price Eraser would probably be an impulse buy for me as well. Having said that, why do I get the feeling these will have lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 only? If that's the case, I'll be passing.

Three dreadful and two semi-dreadful titles. But that's just me.

Some specs:
DVD Times - Warner 'Action' Titles (US BD) in September - Artwork added

No extras, but old DVDs were also bare bones (trailer and some text notes, though). Most seems to have also Dolby TrueHD.

"Eraser" is probably the worst film ever by Arnie (and sad excuse for a action film), but I´ll probably get the Eastwood-titles and also "Outbreak (1995)" (was it good or not, can´t really remember..).

I remember being entertained by Outbreak. Looking forward to seeing it again, this time on HD. We'll probably see a remake with bird flu someday...

I haven't seen it, but can it really be worse than The Sixth Day? That was TERRIBLE.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

It gives it a run for its money, let's put it that way. Posted Image

I'll pick up The Gauntlet for the Frazetta cover art alone.

I'll take a pass on all of these, especially The Gauntlet which, in my opinion, is Eastwood's worst action picture. Sondra Locke should be locked in a portable toilet and set on fire. What was his attraction to her anyway? Is this the best Warner can do with their extensive catalog?

From the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse, the going up was worth the coming down.

I absolutely agree. Nothing here to get excited about. They seem an odd bunch to bother with at a time when the format is still young, production costs higher, and a lot of people looking eagerly to see which titles get rolled out next.

Sweet !!! Posted Image

Every Which Way But Loose (?)
The Gauntlet (Dolby True HD) Posted Image
Outbreak (Dolby True HD) Posted ImagePosted Image
Eraser (Dolby True HD) Posted ImagePosted Image
Under Siege 2 (Dolby Digital)

(The artwork on DVD Empire shows Dolby True HD on the above Bluray titles).

Now if the artwork and information on the site is correct then The Gauntlet, Outbreak and Eraser all have Dolby True HD. I find it curious that Under Siege 2 did not merrit a lossless track? But the three previously mentioned titles will be added unless the video presentation is screwed up by the use of DNR, then it is no sale.

Most of these titles are a must purchase and I can not wait to get The Gauntlet, Eraser and Outbreak in HD, I hope they do fresh transfers for these titles.

One thing makes me wonder though. Couldn't they do a better job at the art work for the cover? Posted Image
