It must be endlessly frustrating for distributors. They release something digitally and it's "No sale. I want it on disc" They release it on DVD and it's "No sale. I want it on blu-ray." The release it on burned blu-ray and it's "No sale. I want it on a pressed disc." They release it on a pressed disc and it's "No sale. This transfer sucks. This title deserves a 4K restoration."Buyer Beware! This may not be a pressed blu ray. Look at the cover. The Blu Ray label is nowhere to be found. Film deserves much better treatment.
I don’t see it as deserves or not deserves but simply what Paramount believes this market will bear. The data being presented on the disc will be identical regardless of pressed or burned.
Add to that, as good as the movie was, it made only 33 million on a 55 million dollar budget. So interest in general will be quite low from the start.
Makes you wonder what will be the longterm future for a vast number of perfectly good, but in the scheme of things, lower echelon work. Will they disappear forever, whether figuratively or literally?
Paramount is doing fine for me.
