Blu-ray Picks for the Week of November 10

I wasn’t going to do these weekly pick articles anymore. Every site has got one now. And it just seemed like this was the least interesting or original thing I could offer. And then my good buddy, editor of the popular celebrity gossip site Egotastic.com, bought himself a Blu-ray player (it’s about time!) After pressing me for details on the best Blu-ray discs he could pick up to show off his very impressive new home theatre system (60″ Pioneer Kuro! So Jealous!!!) he asked if I still publish a weekly list of new releases. Umm… …Continued…

UK to finally get Watchmen: Director’s Cut in November (UPDATED w/ Disc Details))

What?! Huh?! While we’re set to get the Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut 4 Blu-ray disc set on November 3rd here in the US and Canada, the UK will only see the Watchmen: Director’s Cut finally hitting store shelves November 30th?! Are you serious?! Wow…I feel awful for fans of this film on the other side of the Atlantic… …Continued…

Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut Announced and Detailed

We found out about this bad boy ages ago but now Warner has unleashed the official details of the Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut 4 disc set. Hitting shops on November 3rd, this set features the long awaited cut of the film that includes everything but the kitchen sink. You get all the footage missing from the theatrical cut, the extended and deleted scenes and the animated Tales of the Black Freighter woven into one 3 hour and 58 minute “Ultimate” cut of the film. I’m not sure if I can sit through all of that but I’m willing to give it a shot, at least once! Details and images below: …Continued…

Blu-ray Picks for the Week of July 21 - Watchmen: Director’s Cut (Review)

It’s two in the morning and I can’t stop watching the Watchmen Blu-ray disc. I got home late from work. Totally bagged. Ready to hit the sack minutes after kicking off my shoes. I had been seriously committed to sleep before finding the Watchmen disc in my mailbox. And now I’m done. I can’t tear myself away. Zack Snyder has me held enthralled, talking at me from the blackened studio of his Maximum Movie Mode, unveiling the secrets of his violent, masked universe. …Continued…

[VIDEO] Wish List: Watchmen Episode of Prisoners Of Gravity with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons

I grew up in Ontario, Canada. We had our own kind of PBS television station called TVO (TV Ontario). Still do, in fact. Outside of the excellent Magic Shadows and Saturday Night at the Movies, both hosted by Elwy Yost (father of Graham Yost, screenwriter of Speed) I didn’t really pay much attention to TVO, growing up until I discovered Prisoners of Gravity. …Continued…

Watchmen: Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Details Revealed

You see what happens when I disappear for a couple of days? You see the kind of thing that crops up while I’m busy fighting a cold, sleeping and working on comics? Yeah, that’s right. More Watchmen news…

But this is the news you need. News that will help you purchase wisely. News that we knew was on our doorstep, just waiting to break. Warner has sort-of inadvertently confirmed via a flier in early review copies of the Director’s Cut Blu-ray, the coming of their Watchmen: Ultimate Collector’s Edition. We all knew this was a possibility. Director Zack Snyder pretty much told us so. This is not a surprise.

The surprise comes in the details. …Continued…

Watchmen: Director’s Cut additional and extended scenes described

Yes, I know. It’s another Watchmen post. It’s not my fault! The news just keeps on pouring in and to be honest, it’s all sort-of interesting.

Ain’t It Cool News got a note from a reader who had a chance to see Zack Snyder’s longer, meatier Watchmen: Director’s Cut (the one we’re getting on Blu-ray here, in North America on July 21st) and sent in a quick list of some of the changes and extensions he noted as he watched it.

Here’s a look at some of what you’ll find over at Ain’t It Cool: …Continued…

[VIDEO] Watchmen: Director’s Cut Blu-ray BD-Live Maximum Movie Mode Revealed

And Warner Home Video is crowned the winner! The champion! The only studio capable of figuring out how to make BD-Live special features truly awesome!

Wow! I wasn’t a big fan of the Watchmen film but I really can’t wait to check this out. Looks like a lot of fun. Watchmen director Zack Snyder walks you through every scene of the film, talk in depth about the shots and even goes so far as to pause the film to give visual comparisons with panels from the comic book! …Continued…

Watchmen BD-Live Commentary, Director’s Cut Theatrical Screening Confirmed (UPDATED)

A couple of pieces of Watchmen news coming late today.

The first comes from Collider.com, who confirm via an interview with director, Zack Snyder that his longer cut, the one North America will see released on Blu-ray July 21st, will be screening in Los Angeles, New York, Dallas and Minneapolis for the weekend of July 17-19.

Seriously? Four screens? Three days only?! Is this in an effort to promote the Blu-ray and DVD or just to piss off the fans who don’t live in any of these four privileged cities?Perhaps the studio is just being sensitive to all the folks overseas who may never get a chance to see this longer version of the film at all, seeing as how they’re only getting the theatrical cut on home video. …Continued…

Germany to get weird, Amazon Exclusive Watchmen: Rorschach Edition Blu-ray

This is bizarre. It seems that Amazon.de is offering up their German customers some truly bizarre packaging for the Exclusive Watchmen: Rorschach Edition Blu-ray. This thing is f-uuuuuuuuugly! It’s some kind of flat, plastic head that, when you pry it open, reveals the Blu-ray discs in their plastic trays. From the looks of things, the black rorschach-test blots on the mask seem to change, maybe with it’s owner’s growing frustration at having spent good money on such a lame package. And I thought we had it bad with the Nite-Owl ship ornament. …Continued…

Watchmen Blu-ray News: UK Gets Theatrical Cut, Amazon Gets Exclusive “Nite Owl Ship” Packaging

I don’t know how to feel about this news. It turns out that the Watchmen film has a different home video distributor in the UK - A distributor who is releasing the film in a completely different edition than the director’s cut we’re getting over here in North America!

Paramount Home Entertainment brings the Watchmen to home video in the UK in a two-disc Special Edition Blu-ray, featuring the 162 minute theatrical cut of the film and a host of extra content unavailable elsewhere. What the crap? This is completely unfair! I mean, I wasn’t that enthralled with the film in the first place but the completist nerd in me is really aggravted by the notion that the Blu-ray I’ll be watching in a couple of months will have so much content missing from it - Video Journals, Webisodes, Viral Videos and the goddamn Theatrical Cut of the film! From the looks of things though, if I had to choose one or the other, I’d go with Warner Home Video’s North American Blu-ray release. I’m curious to see if I’ll enjoy the film more in this upcoming extended cut and quite excited to check out the “Maximum Movie Mode” split screen commentary - a feature the UK bloggers will no doubt lament missing out on. …Continued…
