Default Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - Individual Release

I love well-done wushu movies and I was really wanting to add this to my BD collection. Wasn't it supposed to be one of the first releases so what the heck happened to it? Does anyone have any news?

If the delay is to make a quality transfer (more like Kung Fu Hustle than like House Of Flying Daggers) I don't mind so much but the lack of news on a release date is annoying me

I really, really want this movie as well as Hero, Fearless (too bad that's Universal), Seven Swords (Universal too arrgh!), and a few others.

Yeah, I wonder why it was among the Sony titles delayed. I hope it comes sooner than later.

I swear I've already seen it on a few shelves here in Toronto... unless my mind is going on me... which is quite possible.

Unfortunately I think it was a mind trick. I am looking for this as well. Amazon has it listed, but you can't preorder it and there is no release date

It's listed in the tier system so obviously it was released at some point.

Which stores?

I just checked amazon.ca and this is what it said-

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon [Blu-ray]
List Price: CDN$ 39.90
Price: CDN$ 27.93 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over CDN$ 39. Details
You Save: CDN$ 11.97 (30%)

Availability: This title will be released on December 31, 2025. Pre-order now! Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca.

I also checked the on-line inventory of all Futureshops ( 6 in Toronto ) and Best Buy (2 in Toronto) and none of them have it.

It couldn't have been released becase Sony pulled it.

If it was I'd like a copy.

I remember being surprised it wasn't higher but haven't checked it recently.

Hmmm... gone now. House of Flying Daggers is on there. I wonder then, if Crouching Tiger copies I saw are Illegal discs... well, I'm not taking the chance and buying one!

That tier system list is inaccurate. Look at this segment:

Quote:
Tier 4- A bit underwhelmed
Visible artifacting, softness, few if any 3D effects

U2: Rattle and Hum
The Dirty Dozen
The Fugitive (bobbed)
Full Metal Jacket (bobbed)
The Fifth Element (PCM)
The House of Flying Daggers
The Dirty Dozen hasn't been released on Blu-ray yet

The little bit I seen of Full Metal Jacket didn't look bobbed AT ALL, looked just grainy and fine.

And The Fifth Element, heh I'm always amazed at what they say about that disc. The credits sequence is from a dupe element (New titles superimposed on them?) but after it ends the movie looks just fine, if not the ubbermost one in the world.

Sometimes makes me wonder on what equipment are these people watching those Blu-rays on. 480i CRTs? 720 LCDs that bob 1080i? etc.

I've seen that on many sites when the title had a release date, but never was released.
