Yes, Miramax which produced the Kill Bill movies belongs to Disney.

I guess it depends on how you look at it. The studio is Miramax (which is owned by Disney) while the movie is being distributed by Disney/Buena Vista.

The word "Disney" is soooooo overused in this context!!
Buena Vista Home Entertainment (BVHE) is the umbrella for Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Miramax Films and Dimension Films. In this case, "Kill Bill" was a Miramax film.

Yes it's Buena Vista that distributes all of Disney, Miramax, Touchstone, etc films. An awful lot of people just use the Disney name, albeit loosely, because it's a very widely recognized name. Rarely do DVD websites refer to an upcoming Buena Vista release, rather nearly all of them I read will refer to the disc as being a Disney release.

Put me down as definitely buying Kill Bill Vol. 1 on BD the day its released. I wonder if Vol. 2 will come out the same day. I liked the first better anyway but I do want them both.

i want the second one a little more than anything, but surprisingly no news on it, not to mention Pulp Fiction!

We didn't think too much about it when we put the movies section up. As all those movies were part of the Disney/Buena Vista press release it was natural to put "Disney" just to make it clear which titles the studio had comitted. We're open to changing it to Miramax, I'll take a second look at the movies section later.

Where is it?! >:O Seriously though does anyone have any late information on it? Other than it was "postponed" or whatever.

Maybe buena vista thought sin city was potentially a bigger title?

Yep, they've been showing the box for this for a few CESs now, but nothing concrete yet. Same with Armageddon. June 5 is when the Bruckheimer wave of movies hits BD (The Rock, Con Air, & Crimson Tide), but Armageddon is a noted absence.

Speaking of Bruckheimer, isn't there a new National Treasure movie coming out? I bet we see the first one on BD in December from Disney. Diane Kreuger is certainly easy on the eyes.

I would guess they are saving up some blockbusters for another big holiday season. This goes for all studios. Holiday 2007 is going to be big for BD with better and cheaper 2nd gen players, HDMI 1.3 receivers and of course PS3. By the holidays, more PS3 games will be out which will result in more console sales and of course more potential BD owners.
Blu-ray Disc Collection- I don't think I can count that high...

Main Viewing Space: Samsung LN52a750/Denon AVR-2309/Polk TSi400/Polk CS10/Polk TSi100/Polk RM85/Polk PSW125/Sony BDP-S350/PS3/XBOX 360/Wii

Secondary Viewing Space: Samsung UN46C5000/Denon AVR-2307/Polk RM6750/BDP-S350

I've said this before: hopefully by holiday 2007, Sony Music execs could get off their asses and re-release their best selling titles as well as upcoming releases on SACD.

With new HDMI receivers and PS3 users, SACD could make a second launch but this time with more hardware presence built-in.

Hopefully Disney will release Kill Bill as two seperate releases. 1) Sell both volumes as one SKU and 2) Sell both volumes as different SKUs.

Better yet, they can release Kill Bill as one movie - my son saw it at the Cannes Film Festival 2 years ago and was blown away by it

It should just be seperate releases. There would be a better chance of more content that way. If they used 2 DL-BD that would be amazing. Hopefully when they decide to release it they will change it to 16:9 instead of all this 2.35 crap that's been coming out.

Oh lord. To change it to "16:9" would mean to cut off parts of the picture to fill up the screen. You're ok with that? Instead of the Crazy 88 they would be the Crazy 62, because that's how many could fit once you cut them out.
