Well at least Warner is doing it at the start of their anniversary year, unlike Universal who waited till the end to have their collection released

Wonder if there is a box set if the MSRP will be around 10 bucks a title at 500, that would be a great deal. Heres hoping.

Awesome and I am definitely excited to see what is included.

I really hope that titles that have already been released (DigiBooks, for example) are not included.

Most likely a repackaging of existing titles. I wouldn't get too excited.

I'm guessing 49 titles that have been out for years and are featured on DVD2Blu, along with one exclusive title... just to piss people off.

I wouldn't be surprised this is something they are trying to get out to fill up a January dead period and will be a gathering of what is already out. But, ohhh, what a collection it could be if it was all new. There are so many great titles to be released from Blu from my favorite studio:

Don Juan, 1926
Public Enemy, 1931
Little Caesar, 1931
I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang, 1932
42nd Street, 1932
Footlight Parade, 1933
The Petrified Forest, 1936
Captain Blood, 1936
Angels With Dirty Faces, 1938
The Sea Hawk, 1941
High Sierra, 1941
Yankee Doodle Dandy, 1943
To Have and Have Not, 1944
The Big Sleep, 1946
Key Largo, 1948
and so many more!

I don't know who buys these boxes, I mean if you wanted the movies you'd already have them. I'm sure it will work out a great price per film, but it will still be a big outlay.

Should Citizen Kane, Wizard of Oz, and Gone with the Wind be included as they weren't originally released by Warner?
The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it. White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

That is a highly ambitious listing and seems more like a wishlist. No way would they lump all those high profile films into one 50 film collection. Sorry. This is probably just a compilation of older classic films.
Samsung PN51D7000 3D Plasma
Marantz SR7002 7.1 A/V Receiver
Marantz MM9000 Power Amp
JBL Studio L Series:

It says "Best of Warner", and they're more than likely going to include titles already released (this is Warner afterall), so what titles do you possibly think Warner would put in a 50 film Best of Warner collection that's being released for their 90th Anniversary? I actually think many on my list are pretty safe bets if this is a collection of existing releases, but feel free to list some movies that you feel are more likely.
