It looks like we might finally see some more Blu-Ray releases of titles held by The Weinstein Company.

From this article www.variety.com/article/VR1118008607.html

Quote:
For now, it will work with Vivendi Entertainment to exploit its catalog and direct-to-DVD biz and start rolling out those pics on Blu-ray as part of Vivendi's takeover of the homevid arm of Genius Products.

I hope this means Grindhouse, Kill Bill-The Whole Bloody Affair, Suspiria, Night of the Living Dead, The Mother of Tears, and a number of the Dragon Dynasty titles are on tap for Blu-Ray releases.

Night of the Living Dead and Suspiria are must haves for blu-ray.  What other major titles do they have?

Some great releases should result from this. Put me down for a copy of Suspiria on Blu. If Vivendi is smart they'll put that title on the fast-track for 2010.
