It's not a DVD/Blu separation, it's so that MrLime feels he can share here without dissension. It's all there in the older posts.

 

Yes, this is old news.  As it's been for the past few months, this thread is suppose to be focused on the announcement and discussion of upcoming titles while the thread in the blu-ray subsection is for general discussion about Olive and where most of the discussion about their recent and past video releases regularly go.

 

It's similar to the two separate Warner Archive mega-threads in the DVD subsection in that regard.

That sounds suspiciously like "Amazing that anyone would deny the existence of God at this point and actually seem proud to admit it"! Non-believers are as fervent in their beliefs as Christians, Mr. Dickstein, though understandably not as popular.

 

[color=#0000cd;]Or maybe it has something to do with the industry's long-standing committment to planned obsolescence: Beta > VHS > Laserdisc > DVD > Blu-ray. They're already planning a "violet" upgrade from Blu, which means the whole process will start all over again.[/color]

 

[color=#0000cd;]Additionally, 95% of what I buy (translation: pre-STAR WARS) is not and likely never will be on Blu-Ray, so why bother?[/color]

 

[color=#0000cd;]It's not a "religious" decision, merely a common sense one.[/color]

That Young at Heart cover is gorgeous...

...And, I just checked...the Amazon pre-order for the Blu of Young at Heart is $20.97.

My original suggestion was simply to consider moving this thread to the Blu section where more people would see it OR merge it, not necessarily just to merge the two. I stand by at least the moving idea since judging by the numbers I don't think the DVD forum gets a lot of traffic anymore. Management even allows Robert Harris' SD reviews to stand in the Blu forum without debate though I have no idea why.

I think the DVDphiles here don't want their threads or their discs upgraded to Blu...

Import CDs will have it at for 14.19 if you can wait a little bit longer :)

I should.

 

But I don't know if I can...

 

:biggrin:

 

I figured the $20.97 was a decent pricepoint given that most of Olive's Blus come in for $24.99 at Amazon.

"Fedora" has a superlative score by the great Miklos Rozsa.  Sadly, it was not well mixed into the final cut of the film yet it remains a vibrant audio recording that reflects the kind of movie "Fedora" ought to have been rather than what it was.

. . . . which reminds me that we're still waiting for the BRD of Fedora.

Not to beat dead horses again but physical media is in its twilight (not a coincidence that Twilight Time chose that name). Downloading and streaming are the future and it's already here! Blu has never taken off the way DVD did and catalog titles (with the welcome exception of niche labels like Olive) are relegated for the most part to MOD whether for the good (Warners) or the bad (Fox).

 

The younger generation aren't interested in physical media and amusingly (or perhaps not), looking at my massive DVD library (4,000 plus titles), my nephews sighed, "What are we going to do with all this junk after you die!"

I ordered those two plus Shack Out on 101. I figured out that Import CDs doesn't take pre-orders until a month prior to the street date. With shipping the order came to $48.54, about $16 per title. They would have cost me $75 at Amazon. Import CDs has slow shipping but they have yet to screw up an order for me, so I'm willing to be patient if it means saving 35%.

[color=#0000cd;]Which was kind of my point. I'm NOT the younger generation--we geezers love physical media, that whole holding it in your hands feeling--and the stuff we buy largely won't be on Blu for that very reason. Downloading is a chore, plus if there are extras you don't get 'em.[/color]

Being part of the younger generation, I prefer the physical media to downloading and streaming. It's because I want to have something in my hands I know will work without the hassle of waiting and problems related to the latter. And, as Mike S. mentioned, you can have access to extra features you don't get from downloading.

I think that both DVD and Blu-ray are still going to be around for longer that people think, but let's get back to the discussion of Olive Films and their releases as well as announcements. I can't wait to see what's on deck!

No, the only one with EXTRAS is WITCHBOARD 2.
