Fabulous film! The Shout website says it will ship 2 weeks early if you order through them. But shipping for 1 item is more than $6, which pushes this film out of my price range (I refuse to spend more than $20 on a single title Blu-ray). I looked for other titles to buy and the pickings were slim (most of Shout's stuff isn't of interest to me).
There's no information about the transfer either. I have a feeling this is just Shout releasing the already-available HD version of the film. It can be rented or purchased from Amazon, iTunes, etc. If it's the same quality it is difficult to justify $25 for the Blu-ray (including shipping) when the digital is $12.99.
Plus... digital copies don't take up any extra space on my shelving unit.
