With the recent announcement that Samsung is no longer manufacturing Blu-ray players, I must admit I have finally given up hope of ever seeing two of my favorite movies, K-PAX and Dolores Claiborne released on BD. If it hasn’t happened by now, with the format dying, I just can’t see it ever happening now. I’m fortunate to have 720p Internet copies of these two gems, but man, they deserve full 1080 (at least).
What are some of your favorite movies that deserve Blu-ray treatment that will probably never get it?
The Wilderness Family (and sequels)
The Sea Gypsies (aka Shipwrecked)
Midway (extended version with Battle of Coral Sea)
Destination Tokyo (although Warner Archive May release that one some day)
The Wizard of Speed and Time
release is High Risk (1981). An entertaining adventure/heist film, with a good cast (James
Brolin, Anthony Quinn, Bruce Davison, Lindsay
Wagner, Cleavon Little, James Coeburn). It was released on DVD by a minor studio, in a horrible
looking 4X3 version.

Thanks for the link. Believe it or not, I did look for it before posting. I look for it every few months. In fact, after I just bought it, I blanked out my screen and searched for it again, and it still didn't come up. There must be something about my browser history that is putting it way down the list. I know all searches on different computers are not created equally.I don't mean to be a dick, but DC is readily available on blu-ray and and I can't believe you never thought of looking for it before posting this.
Thanks again for the link. If nothing else, this thread gave me one of the two movies I really wanted.
