    Unfortunately there will always be someone who will
    say just that.

    From experience most of us know that there are
    always variables that occur that delay or even
    cancel titles that are announced this far out in
    advance.

    I am not saying that is the case here, but
    Warner has gotten a lot of unfair criticism
    for not keeping to schedule and people need
    to understand that nothing is ever etched in
    stone when a certain title is promised.

    Will the Ben Hur Ultimate edition come with a chariot?
    Even if not, I'll have to get that one!

    Honestly guys,

    Many of my DVD's look just as good as the blu-ray discs I have when played on my SONY Blu-ray player which gives the best possible DVD presenation - you can't tell a difference even on a big screen

    The films that really should be on the list are the early DVD releases that were not mastered for 16:9. Esp from MGM/UA

    Most DVD's mastered since 2005 look great when compared to blu-ray discs. But my DVD's from the 90's don't look good at all.

    Well, I'm waiting for them to release The Big Sleep on Blu-ray. I'm happy with The Maltese Falcon and Treasure of Sierra Madre on DVD. The latter two films are already out on good DVD transfers, whereas The Big Sleep transfer could be improved. it's also my fovourite film out of those three.

    Yeah, I'm definitely more of a Big Sleep/To Have or Have Not fan than Maltese Falcon/Sierra Madre fan, too.

    I thought THE EXORCIST was all but confirmed for October 2010?

    Don't let any exclusions like The Exorcist, or Where Eagles Dare etc worry you, this is a basic list, and you can bet WB's has a lot more catalog releases to come in 2010.

    I have doubts about the veracity of this list. One reason is the single disc GTTW that is alleged to be coming out next week. The second is below:
    Since when does Warner own the rights to the 1994 Getaway? That was a Universal release, except in the UK.

    Don't know about the Getaway, this list might be a copy and paste from a UK release list.

    But here's the Single disc of GWTW that was a Target exclusive.........now at Amazon (and probably other etailers) http://www.amazon.com/Gone-Wind-Blu-ray-Clark-Gable/dp/B002XF9C54/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1264766368&sr=8-9


    I guess I understand......Well no, not really. But to each their own.

    Generally speaking, it's disappointing to see so much indifference towards vintage films of this caliber.

    Indifference? I have a dozen Blu-rays on my wishlist that are coming soon. Sadly I can't afford to buy everything I would like immediately, so I have to prioritise.

    Like I said.......To each their own. I'm not telling you or anyone else what to purchase, how to spend your money nor what titles to get excited about.

    "Generally speaking" means just that. The general consensus in this thread so far is a big shoulder shrug, which is disappointing for me to see.....nothing more.

    Don't spin my comments into something that doesn't exist.

    I was hoping to see Raintree County on this list. Hopefully we'll see it this year.

    A restored version of the Judy Garland version of "A Star Is Born" (no new footage has been discovered) will be the first film screened at the Turner Classic Film Festival in April this year.
    Since Warner Bros. has worked on the film many have speculated that it will be released on blu-ray this year. No announcement has been made yet.

    Music Man, Dr. Zhivago, Forbidden Planet and Ben Hur will be automatic purchases for me. Gone With The Wind and The Getaway I already have on Blu-ray. I'm not sure about the Huston/Bogarts. The Maltese Falcon is excellent on DVD. Will the Blu-ray be much better?

    If Mutiny On The Bounty includes the Brando/Howard remake, I'll buy it.

    George Feltenstein has said in interviews that they plan to release it in 2010 along with the 30s version of the film.

    From that list I'll definitely be getting:

    What's Up Doc
    Forbidden Planet - really excited about this one.
    Ben Hur

    Maybe:

    LOTR trilogy - I'm undecided whether or not I'll hold out for the Extended Editions. If we won't see them til 2012 or later then I might pick these up. I already have the EE's on dvd.
    Dr. Zhivago
