I got those two tiles in HD digital too on iTunes, but there is no guarantee that we'll ever see the other five titles on Blu-ray any time soon. I can't blame Warner for not releasing all six films on Blu-ray with soft sales today on physical media.This is the sort of thing that has limited my Blu-Ray purchases lately (as is the one-film-at-a-time Val Lewton release schedule). This should be a set of all six, like the DVDs. Instead it's one film at a time which could run up the cost to three figures by the time they're done with it. If I have to buy one film at a time I can do it on iTunes, where I've already bought Thin Man and Song of in HD when they were on sale for 4.99 each. All six aren't available as HD downloads yet, but the downloads already have a head start over the Blu-rays.
If you look at any thread announcing any Blu-ray release, you will see comments from people wanting more than what is being released like some other title. It's like human nature to ask for more than what is coming.Finally a bona fide genuine classic film from the 1930s gets released on blu ray by the Warners Archives. You'd think there would be singing and dancing in the streets by those who have been crying for months and months about the WA not releasing pre-1953 product. Yet we get complaints that it's not part of a box set! Ah, Warners, you just can't win. Damned if you do and damned if you don't Frankly, I'm beginning to wonder why you even bother at all.
Yeah, I seem to remember when Criterion announced their release of Swing Time that it dashed hopes of WA ever doing an Astaire and Rogers blu ray box set and some weren't happy about that. But with physical media on the wane, I'm like the hungry dog grateful for any bones tossed my way. If I growl, I just might not get any more bones.If you look at any thread announcing a Blu-ray release, you will see comments from people wanting more than what is being released like some other title.
