Jesus H. Chrismukkah!

My list now includes "Closer", "Flags Of Our Fathers", "Letters from Iwo Jima", "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest", "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl". And that's just HD discs. I've got "Scrubs" S5, "The O.C." S4, "The Third Man" Criterion, and more. Well, at least I get paid the same day. I'm gonna need it.

ETA: I forgot about the JPN import of "Face/Off". Hmmm...I think I'll hold off on that one, lest I be reduced to eating Blu-ray covers for sustenance.

Letters From Iwo Jima
Blu-ray | Blue BD Case Official Pre-Sell Date: April 2, 2007

Studio: Warner Bros.
Theatrical Release: 1/12/07
Theatrical Box Office (M): $13.52
Genre(s): Drama, War
MPAA: R
Rating Comments: Rated "R" by the MPAA for graphic war violence.


Synopsis: Sixty-one years ago, US and Japanese armies met on Iwo Jima. Decades later, several hundred letters are unearthed from that stark island's soil. The letters give faces and voices to the men who fought there, as well as the extraordinary general who led them. The Japanese soldiers are sent to Iwo Jima knowing that in all probability they will not come back. Among them are Saigo, a baker who wants only to live to see the face of his newborn daughter; Baron Nishi, an Olympic equestrian champion known around the world for his skill and his honor; Shimizu, a young former military policeman whose idealism has not yet been tested by war; and Lieutenant Ito, a strict military man who would rather accept suicide than surrender. Leading the defense is Lt. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi, whose travels in America have revealed to him the hopeless nature of the war but also given him strategic insight into how to take on the vast American armada streaming in from across the Pacific. With little defense other than sheer will and the volcanic rock of the island itself, Gen. Kuribayashi's unprecedented tactics transform what was predicted to be a quick and bloody defeat into nearly 40 days of heroic and resourceful combat. Almost 7,000 American soldiers were killed on Iwo Jima; more than 20,000 Japanese troops perished. The black sands of Iwo Jima are stained with their blood, but their sacrifices, their struggles, their courage and their compassion live on in the letters they sent home. From Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood comes the untold story of the Japanese soldiers and their General who defended against the invading American forces on the island of Iwo Jima. Subtitled Film, with English Subtitles.
Director: Clint Eastwood
Actors: Ken Watanabe, Kazunari Ninomiya, Tsuyoshi Ihara, Ryo Kase, Shido Nakamura, Hiroshi Watanabe, Takumi Bando, Yuki Matsuzaki


Critic's Quotes: "Letters" may well fire Eastwood's many partisans with renewed vigor, spelling sustained biz on select screens. - TODD MCCARTHY (Variety.com)
"Letters From Iwo Jima," takes audiences to a place that would seem unimaginable for an American director. Daring and significant ... - Kenneth Turan (LA Times)

Wasn't it announced somewhere else (can't remember for the life of me) that the HD DVD was the one with TrueHD and the BD will have PCM? Not complaining as either one would be just fantastic, but that's what I read.

I know "Letters..." isn't the type of movie that Warners had earmarked for IME, but does anyone think this means anything for Batman or others they're holding back? Probably not, but just figured I'd throw something out there and see what you think, since this is a major release for them.

Oh, that day is going to ruin me. Thank God I should have my fellowship check by then, or else I'd be trapping squirrels for a few weeks. I'm gettin Flags, Letters, POTC (both), Mission: Impossible, and Apocalypto.

I think that the POTC movies and Apocalypto are a good match for The Matrix, especially since they're all separate.

HighDefDigest posted that both formats will have the TrueHD sound. They even note that it is a first for Warners. It's actually kind of weird that Warners is releasing a BD movie w/out giving us the shaft in any way. I'm starting to think they may like us a little.

These two masterpieces from Clint Eastwood are titles that I don't wanna miss (since I missed watching both at the movie house)

Hope to grab these once Blu-ray formally releases in my country

I thought Flags of our Fathers was very dissapointing. However, I really want to see Letters from Iwo Jima.

Wait for it...Warners may still push back the Blu-Ray date based on past actions...

I would chalk this one up to the fact that it did not do very well in theaters, so they want no excuse for it to NOT sell well on the home video market.

There are people out there saying Blu-ray Piracy will be a problem but with sales figures like those two are going to get: where exactly is the problem? :P

Me too. But has anyone seen it at the movies? The HD trailers to both films look really washed out (color wise) and not overly detailed. Is that really the look of these films or is it just the trailer?
