I'll be willing to try out Hudsucker Proxy...God it's been so long since I saw it but I think I remember liking it. And maybe I'll bite for The Legend of Billie Jean when that hits. I was planning on buying it anyway on DVD.

I think this is fantastic news. Let's be realistic here.

First: WB stated these would be pressed discs which is not a burn off.

Second: and most importantly....these are back catalog titles. Do you really think it makes any economical sense to release these movies any other way? How many copies of say, DEATHTRAP, FEARLESS, DEMON SEED, LOOKER do you think would sell in this day and age?

We would never see these on BLU so I am thrilled with this announcement.

Relieved that the discs will have free shipping - does WB change tax?

Michael Collins, hopefully with a director's cut or at least deleted scenes.

+1 although my BD-R media has played back so far.

Just to clarify. Most DVDs received 2K masters, which are technically already HD. I hope that these releases receive new masters in their native resolution, i.e. 4K, 6K, or 8K.

It's a bad day.
You're looking at it entirely wrong. They're not losing faith in anything. They're releasing more niche titles in a way that doesn't cost them as much as a wider release. You're thinking that if MOD didn't exist, these would be released widely, but that's not true, they likely would have never been released at all. This is good news, this allows titles that you'd never expect to see the light of day have a chance now. I wish every studio had a MOD for their deep catalogs.

I don't know how you derived that interpretation.

For those who still have $10 off $30 Insider coupons, this is a great chance to use one. I had almost forgotten about mine.

Replicated = factory pressed/stamped disc

Duplicated = burned to blank media


If these were BD-Rs, the press release would have not mentioned that these discs will be replicated. Instead they would have said these were strictly MOD (manufactured-on-demand/burned).

This announcement sounds more like they are taking the Twilight Time approach with the Warner Archive Blu-ray releases and will only have a limited number of discs manufactured.

Have you tried it yet? Mine hasn't worked on anything, and I know others in a similar situation

Perhaps they can start using m-disc for burning (http://www.m-disc.com)

I'm with you. What I don't understand is how AgentOrange decided the word "fulfilled" ---> "subsequent batches will be MOD".

Anyway, I ordered Gypsy. I wonder, though, how I will tell if it was MOD or not. It's easy to tell with DVDs but I've never seen a BD-R before.

Exactly. Though unlike TT Warner is likely to simply order another batch if they sell out. No reason to not to since it's not a licensing deal for a specific # over a specific # of years (the 3000 copies/3 years for TT).

If these are indeed not just BD-Rs, then I'll keep my eyes peeled for these.

BD-Rs are blatantly different - usually dark blue on the bottom of the disc and without the hard coating. The latter not being on a BD-R is another reason that they really can't release these on BD-Rs - the physical design of Blu-rays in a commercial atmosphere has the hard coating for scratch resistance with the info layer MUCH closer to the surface than DVDs. BD-Rs don't have this protection and are even more susceptible to scratching that DVD-Rs.
