Blood Work, finally! One of Eastwood's better latter-day films IMO. And Ransom, a terrific film. Disney released the film twice on DVD, both times with only letterboxed transfers. Cocktail was announced as an SE reissue but it never happened. Here's hoping all of these will sport fresh HD transfers.

Wasn't WHV supposed to release 30 to 40 catalog titles on blu in 2012? So far the pace has been a little slow. Does anyone have any guesses what they are up to?

Probably changed their minds in favor of dumping everything on MOD. I've never seen a sorrier state of affairs concerning home video than the one we're in now.

A couple of nice titles but nothing I need to own. Blood work never did anything for me, the villain was too easy to figure out. I like Ransom but it's more a rental at this point. Scent is probably he best one for me but not much replay for me there.

I'll pick up The Color of Money and A Perfect World.


"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

I'll probably pick up the Eastwoods and The Color Of Money when the price is right (e.g., under $10)


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

The Color of Money, for sure.  Only ever saw it once, when it came out.  It'll be great to have both that and The Hustler on BLU.
