I saw that about Bloodsport. If they combo'd it with Kickboxer (a lesser film [than Bloodsport] which somehow is sold separately on Blu-Ray)
I'd be perfectly happy with it, but Timecop? Jean-Claude's best film definitely deserves it's own release.
I also liked The Island and saw that it's only available via import. I've read that with some import Blu-Ray's the main feature may work but sometimes extras will not.
Saw that Mr. Bean's Holiday (which was on HD-DVD) has finally been released on Blu, but only overseas so same deal there - and Amazon is asking somewhere around $40 for the import! WTF!
Same thing happened with The Goonies, we had to wait an extra two years for the 25th Anniversary Edition when Europe had it on Blu since 2008.
I have an HD-DVD player as well and a few titles, though none now that aren't also available on Blu. You named The Breakfast Club
and that was released on Blu this past August. Although there are plenty of other Hughes films which haven't yet been released on a hi-def format (Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Weird Science, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Career Opportunities, The Great Outdoors etc.).
As far as titles that were released on HD-DVD that still aren't on Blu that I'm interested in include Fast Times At Ridgemont High
, The Game, Midnight Run, and Scent Of A Woman.
Sounds like The Abyss
will happen, and as for Star Wars
, as you may know it was announced
back in August 2010 that all six Star Wars movies will be coming to Blu-Ray in a Box Set in Fall 2011. Now there's no way in hell I'll be forced to buy the prequels to get the original trilogy, so hopefully they'll release them separately soon thereafter.
As for Indiana Jones, there seems to be no set release date at this time. At one time it was said
that the orignial Indiana Jones trilogy was to be released on Blu by the end of 2009. And as seen here
, some form of remaster has been done. So I'm sure it's only a matter of time, question is, how much
Seems that with anything directed/produced by Lucas and/or Spielberg (E.T.
, Indiana Jones, Jaws
, Jurassic Park
, Star Wars, Willow), or Cameron for that matter, one can expect a long wait.TRON
was originally supposed to be released in November 2010, with no firm release date ever given, the month prior to Tron: Legacy being unleashed in theaters. Apparently the remastering process for the hi-def format has been completed, but it seems as if it's now more likely to see the release of the Tron Blu-Ray sometime around the release of Tron: Legacy on Blu Ray - probably around Summer 2011.
