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

I'll grab The Wedding Singer. And I may get American History X and 2010.

"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

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.) Posted Image

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. Posted Image

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