Default Postcards from the Edge (1990)




http://www.millcreekent.com/postcard...e-blu-ray.html


Quote:

Having a wonderful time, wish I were here!

Based on actress Carrie Fisher’s bestselling autobiographical novel, Postcards From The Edge is a wickedly witty expose of life in the Hollywood fast lane. In a brilliant comic performance, Meryl Streep stars as Suzanne Vale, a wisecracking, vulnerable actress determined to jump start her failing career. As her aging movie star mother, Shirley MacLaine offers the definitive portrait of Hollywood’s gutsy glamour queens in scenes spiked with razor-edged humor and searing honesty. Dennis Quaid, Rob Reiner and an all-star cast offer a bird’s-eye view of Hollywood has-beens and wanna-bes. Funny and uncompromising, Postcards From The Edge dishes the Tinseltown dirt with style and wit, serving up a delicious behind-the-scenes comedy that no film lover can resist.

I've yet to see this but I wish the one movie based on a Carrie Fisher book was getting better than the Mill Creek brush-off.

It's a perfect timing. The phrase 'too soon' applies only when you're making a bad jokes about recently deceased person.

Exploiting the death of two Hollywood stars to sell a BD a week (and less for Reynolds) since they died = Too soon

No mention of Carrie Fisher's audio commentary that's on the DVD.

Disagree. It's just a BD. Relax.

Too soon? More like too late...

I bought this DVD set (also put out by Mill Creek) a few months ago for a few bucks.



Unless Mill Creek surprises us with a sterling Blu-ray transfer and not a glorified DVD upscale, I'll stick with what I have.
I'll be back – for more bargain bin Blus!

If this was a major studio release, I would still disagree with you, but the fact that this is being released by Mill Creek (perhaps the shoddiest blu-ray producer in the business) screams exploitation!

Mill Creek IS a bad joke!

I'm perfectly relaxed, I'm just explaining why your interpretation of the usage of "too soon" is very limited. And of course it's just a BD to us, but it may be more than that to their families. Make no mistake about it, this is shameless cashgrab. If MC had class they'd respect the actessses and their families, and not try to make money off their passing. But yeah, class and tact are out the window these days so..Woooo a blu-ray release!!1

My take on it is that it's a shame that it took the deaths of both Fisher and Reynolds to get them off their asses to release the Blu-ray in the first place. It's coming out in four weeks according to their website (2/1 release date). Seeing that they've had the rights for a while (long enough to put it on DVD), they couldn't have released it any time earlier than this?

Whatever. I've been wanting this on Blu ray. If it is a cash grab I don't care, I want the disc. I'll take it even as a Mill Creek release. Was hoping for Twilight Time at some point though. Oh well.
