Nice!

Wish we could also get a rerelease of the Leone Dollars trilogy that looked better than the current one is supposed to. Or at least a release of Good, Bad that also has the US theatrical cut in HD.

Please help me acquire these Scream Factory slips (in OCD Mint condition):
Cockneys Vs. Zombies,
The Howling, Phantasm II, The Fog, Prince Of Darkness, The Sopranos Complete Collection

I remember when I first bought this on DVD some year's ago and being amazed at the picture quality so I can't wait for this to be released on Blu-ray and hopefully to be amazed once again.

Definitely double dipping on this one from my DVD collection. My DVD, in fact, was not even the Collector's Edition. Thus, it is a must have for me. One of my favorite films of all time.

Hardly a confirmation. He might as well have said "maybe next year".

Still a move in the right direction. Can't wait if it's true.

I actually never seen this so I will definitely have to get this!
Is this similar in tone to "Where Eagles Dare" ?
Hands off the compression button, Music Industry!
Hands off the DNR button, Blu-Ray producers!
Films are supposed to have grain!
