Gauntlet, Outbreak Headline Warner Blu-ray Catalog Wave
Every Which Way But Loose
Under Siege 2
I'll pick-up all five of those titles. It's nice to see some more Eastwood on Blu-ray too.
good news on the Gauntlet, hopefully it won't be the same transfer as on the SDDVD it needs some work.
what does total of 6 mean?
Color me confused, too.
maybe he included Blow, because thats coming too.
but why put a total on a headline when plenty more then 6 are coming.
also maybe confusing to people looking might be the "Gaultlet" what movie is that.
total of 6 (meant 5) new titles on Blu Ray
couldn't list them all in the thread title
Under Siege 2 is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures, and for the price Eraser would probably be an impulse buy for me as well. Having said that, why do I get the feeling these will have lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 only? If that's the case, I'll be passing.
Three dreadful and two semi-dreadful titles. But that's just me.
DVD Times - Warner 'Action' Titles (US BD) in September - Artwork added
No extras, but old DVDs were also bare bones (trailer and some text notes, though). Most seems to have also Dolby TrueHD.
"Eraser" is probably the worst film ever by Arnie (and sad excuse for a action film), but I´ll probably get the Eastwood-titles and also "Outbreak (1995)" (was it good or not, can´t really remember..).
I remember being entertained by Outbreak. Looking forward to seeing it again, this time on HD. We'll probably see a remake with bird flu someday...
I'm really digging that 'Gauntlet' cover art. Perhaps I will pick that one up as a blind-buy. I may rent 'Every Which Way But Loose' since I haven't seen that either. The rest are a big 'pass'.
I haven't seen it, but can it really be worse than The Sixth Day? That was TERRIBLE.
It gives it a run for its money, let's put it that way.
I'll be picking up Under Siege 2 and The Gauntlet
I'll pick up The Gauntlet for the Frazetta cover art alone.
they forgot the sequal to Every Which Way,
Any Which Way You Can.
I'll take a pass on all of these, especially The Gauntlet which, in my opinion, is Eastwood's worst action picture. Sondra Locke should be locked in a portable toilet and set on fire. What was his attraction to her anyway? Is this the best Warner can do with their extensive catalog?
I absolutely agree. Nothing here to get excited about. They seem an odd bunch to bother with at a time when the format is still young, production costs higher, and a lot of people looking eagerly to see which titles get rolled out next.
Every Which Way But Loose (?)
The Gauntlet (Dolby True HD)
Outbreak (Dolby True HD)
Eraser (Dolby True HD)
Under Siege 2 (Dolby Digital)
(The artwork on DVD Empire shows Dolby True HD on the above Bluray titles).
Now if the artwork and information on the site is correct then The Gauntlet, Outbreak and Eraser all have Dolby True HD. I find it curious that Under Siege 2 did not merrit a lossless track? But the three previously mentioned titles will be added unless the video presentation is screwed up by the use of DNR, then it is no sale.
Most of these titles are a must purchase and I can not wait to get The Gauntlet, Eraser and Outbreak in HD, I hope they do fresh transfers for these titles.
One thing makes me wonder though. Couldn't they do a better job at the art work for the cover?
