Citizen Kane: 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition in September

I can’t believe I forgot to post this. It’s kind of old news now but huge news all the same. I mean, Citizen Kane is only the best movie ever, according to a million “Best” and “Top” this-or-that movie lists and 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Oh yeah, and I think it’s pretty awesome too! And now, thanks to Warner it’s finally making its high-def debut. The studio will unleash their new 4K restoration of the film on Blu-ray this September 13th, in a boxed set that also includes the Oscar nominated feature-length doc, The Battle Over Citizen Kane as well as the HBO film RKO 281, both on DVD. …Continued…

1962 Mutiny on the Bounty coming to Blu-ray in November

If the announcement of the impending release of the 1962 remake of Mutiny on the Bounty is any indication, Warner may be planning to release a version of this classic sea-faring tale on Blu-ray every November!

Ben-Hur: 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray in September

Holy crap. September can’t come soon enough for me. If the restored footage in the super-compressed trailer above is any indication of what Ben-Hur is going to look like in the upcoming Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set from Warner, I’m going to lose my mind! This is a great looking set, with tons of bonus goodies and the three-and-a-half hour film given plenty of room to breath, spread over a couple of dual-layer discs. I’m less thrilled with having to store the over-sized box and the reproduction books but the discs themselves, the special features and the photo-book will be welcome additions to my collection. I can’t wait!! …Continued…

Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season Three Blu-ray announced and detailed

It was almost exactly a month ago that Amazon.ca leaked the package art and release date for The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Three Blu-ray set. Well, they got the art right but the date was actually a week off. Warner has officially announced the set for an October 18th release, with a collection of special features that mimic earlier sets. Expect further details in the near future, like the announcement of digibook packaging (I’m going to be pissed if they skimp out on the book this time!) and the non-revelation that the episodes are only encoded in compressed audio. …Continued…

The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Extended Edition Blu-ray image controversy

Here we go again. You might recall last years Lord of the Rings controversy, regarding the questionable image quality of the Blu-ray transfers on the discs in the theatrical edition boxed set. Particularly the soft, noise-reduced presentation of the first film, The Fellowship of the Ring. Well, the boxed set of the Extended Editions of the films, due out next week, seems to be rousing the ire of film fans who’ve had the opportunity to screen it early. This time around, however, it’s not the quality of the transfer that’s at issue. …Continued…
