Well I presume that most of the titles wouldn't be available in good enough condition for HD. And as for including them in SD, they're including a few astronomy related ones but presumably they want people to keep buying the DVD set.

The iTunes copy of the movie is filled with interlacing artifacts and is a horrible frame rate. If you watch the DVD version after, its like they restored the iTunes version.

Didn't Flicker Alley say that they are only licensed to do a Region 1 blu-ray so I don't think there will be a French release. I haven't heard of one anywhere. I think I am going to pre-order it. They said that there will only be like around 3000 copies which I guess is another reason why its a little pricey but the value will go up over time. I don't want to regret not getting it down the road.

Also I'm curious. Will this be the oldest movie to ever be put on blu-ray? I know the Astronomers Dream was made around 1895.

I preordered seconds after the Amazon.com preorder went up fearing it would sell out.

I've been watching the Flicker Alley Mlies DVD set, and it's exactly what I want picture quality is great. No need for the bluray.

By sheer coincidence, I had recently seen The Artist and was looking for additional silent films on Blu. I saw a news item for this release and decided to pre-order it for myself and a buddy of mine who had a birthday coming up.

It wasn't until later that I found out Air was involved and that this release would be somewhat limited. I am pretty excited for the release. It has been close to 10 years since I have seen the film.

I know. That's why I said "if". As I said, I've already read the blog entry

When you placed your order, you should have received an e-mail from Flicker Alley saying they would be charging your card far in advance. They also had an opt out if you didn't want the early charge.

I've been doling out bits of the Melies box set to myself like ice cream every evening. Last night I watched a film from 1904 where an explorer took every form of transportation... Dirigible, automobile, submarine, etc... To travel to the sun. I've never seen anything like it. The 5 disk set (and the single disk Encore) are a revelation. I have new respect for Melies. Beautiful hand colored prints that look fantastic projected.

Hm... Where did you see that the official release date has changed? I don't see anything about it on their site or their Twitter feed. And I haven't gotten any further email from them since my pre-order confirmation came, which said that March 27th is the release date. Weird that they wouldn't publicize a change like that, or at least notify those who had already pre-ordered.

I mean, not that it really matters, I'll get it when I get it, I'd just like to have some idea of when to expect it.
