Sony Announce First Blu-Ray Movies

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Read about it here


Blu-Ray Movies Announced:

* The Fifth Element
* Bram Stoker's Dracula
* Desperado
* For a Few Dollars More
* The Guns of Navarone
* Hitch
* House of Flying Daggers
* A Knight's Tale
* Kung Fu Hustle
* The Last Waltz
* Legends of the Fall
* Resident Evil Apocalypse
* Robocop
* Sense and Sensibility
* Stealth
* Species
* SWAT
* xXx

I saw The Fifth Element in high definition last summer and it was amazing, you could start to tell how fake all the costumes and props were because of the amazing quality.

NOTE: I will report all posts about how HD-DVDs are better or if you flame this format in any way will be reported, if you don't agree with this then don't post.

I wonder how much the Blu-ray players will cost. One thing I wish Sony would have done is, do away with the whole region coding thing.

so this is no longer a forum? is it a blog now or what. people should still be allowed to post just respectfully and intelligently. i know it usually goes south eventually but what are we here for. make an faq if you dont want feedback.

Well the first blu-ray player would be the ps3 and i believe the panasonic or was it pioneer Dvd-rom drives. there are talks that the ps3 would be region free but no actual words on that yet.

Imagine the clarity of sounds when that blu ray disk is encoded wth dts neo es and crisp image when all that movies is digitally remastered. <---drooling. cant wait for the blu ray.

I know for a fact that someone would come and flame the format ignoring the purpose of this post. If you are one of those people then please do a search for the numerous Blu-ray VS HD-DVD threads, thank you.

I never understand how companies choose which movies they are going to release first on a new format. I had the same questions about the initial UMD movies, and this list is no better. I mean, come on...Resident Evil Apocalpyse? That movie is terrible. A Knight's Tale? SWAT? Is there really pent up demand to own these totally average movies in hi-def? For a Few Dollar's More? Um, how about starting with A Fistful of Dollars, which came first and is a better movie? Or maybe give us the one we probably want most, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly?

Personally, I think they should spend their time focusing on releasing more current movies. That is what people are usually most interested in. And I believe that people will be less likely to replace DVDs they already with Blu-Ray/HD-DVD versions than they were to replace VHS tapes with DVDs because all of their DVDs will still work in the new players. And Toshiba's two existing HD-DVD players both upconvert DVDs to 720p or 1080i, I presume Blu-Ray players will match that.

There have been some other movie announcements, too.

Lionsgate:
Lord of War
The Punisher
Devil's Rejects
Saw
T2: Judgment Day
Reservoir Dogs
Total Recall
Dune
Rambo: First Blood
See No Evil


20 films, including Fantastic Four and Ice Age.

Wow, Jessica Alba would look even greater in High Def

OK, am I retarded or are all of those Sony titles?

Why would they have such a small scope of movie releases for BlueRay of their own movies?

I would think because they would have to get the rights from the other movie makers before they could release it in there own format. With there movies they are able to release them right away as they do not have to get the right to print them from anyone else.
