This is a question from a Sony survey I just took. I voted for the Spielbergs and Lawrence.
Where is this survey, and who in god's name came up with some of these titles?
For those wondering... http://www.sonypictures.com/homevideo/bluray/ The survey is in the upper right corner. Edit: It asks you for a BR product ID, but it also says enter 9999 if you haven't purchased any yet. For those who scan like me, threw me for a sec.
Probably three quarters of those I wouldn't purchase in any format — might not accept if given to me. As a matter of general interest, of the above selection, the following have been released on MUSE Hi-Vision LaserDisc. If the 1035i master tapes (some of them possible analog) used for those releases were reused, the results might be disappointing, as the technology of HD film transfers has improved considerably in the interim. A League of Their Own The Grudge A River Runs Through It Sleepless in Seattle Basic Instinct (I think this is the "Basic" on the list) Lawrence of Arabia Close Encounters A Few Good Men Jumanji
I choose "None of these"!
Close encounters and Stand by me would be nice. How about Bram Stoker's Dracula too..?
God, did that list suck... Since you could only choose three, I chose Spider-man, Spider-man 2, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. However, I would've added Lawrence of Arabia to that, but that's about it.
I went with Lawrence of Arabia, A Few Good Men and SPiderman 2, but I agree it was a pretty bad list.
There's too much filler on that list. Out of all those I would buy the Spider-man flicks, Identity, Lawrence of Arabia and Once Upon a Time in Mexico (I love a good popcorn flick that doesn't take itself too seriously!). There are a couple of others I'd be interested in but there isn't much else there for me.
These are the only titles I am interesed in and I hope they join Fox in offering DTS-HD Master Audio as well. Spiderman The Grudge Godzilla A River Runs Through It My Best Friend's Wedding Bad Boys 2 Jerry Maguire Bad Boys Radio Fun With Dick & Jane Resident Evil Lawrence of Arabia Christmas With The Kranks Mask of Zorro The Forgotten Spiderman 2 Close Encounters Panic Room Once Upon a Time in Mexico Hellboy A Few Good Men Are We There Yet? Men in Black Air Force One Memoirs of a Geisha Anger Management Jumanji
Taxi Driver please....
lawrence of arabia ONLY IF Lowry Digital or someone like that remasters the negative. the SD print sux.
Naw, Artisan (bought out by Lionsgate) owns the rights to Basic Instinct. Basic is the McTiernan-directed Columbia pic starring Travolta and Samuel L. Glad they're apparently at least considering Bad Boys II. Say what one might about the pic, it will be a sonic and visual treat in high def.
Some titles on there that I would be interested in... Spiderman 1 & 2 (obviously) Donnie Brasco Underworld Dark Crystal Labyrinth Mask of Zorro A Few Good Men Close Encounters Memoirs of a Geshia Lawrence of Arabia Hellboy Men in Black Hook Once Upon a Time in Mexico ...and what, no love for 13 Going on 30?!?
I took the survey even though I am supporting HD DVD at this time. My choices were SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, DONNIE BRASCO and JERRY MAGUIRE. I figured the SPIDERMAN'S, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, LAWRENCE were givens and would be released without question.
