Default List of movies without an HD version.

This is a list of movies or versions of movies that never got a Blu-ray, HD-DVD, or a streaming edition in HD. Some DVD editions are missing, please add them to the blu-ray.com collection

Movie Title/Alt Title (Year) [Aspect-Ratio and Version-Related Problems] {See below}#

Not all home media releases are equal. For the bracketed area, we list the home media release with the best PQ, AQ, and exclusive extras.

For alternate cuts, we do: {Name of the cut, home media release; Name of the cut, home media release}

When an HD version of the movie is announced, we add: ", (highest quality format) announced by (company) for a (date) release"

# contains the source of my info

Criteria:
  • Movies and movie versions that didn't appear in a Blu-ray, HD-DVD, or Streaming in HD.
  • HD means movies in 1080p or 1080i or higher, like 1440p or 2160p
  • 720p will not be considered HD
  • Alternate cut will be included if it has alternate/new material that hasn't appeared officially in HD
  • Will also include movies or movie versions that appear in HD Broadcast but is not available in HD in BD, HD-DVD, or Streaming
Color Legend:
  • Blue = Movie was shot in a resolution under HD.
  • Magenta = Movie was announced for an HD release.
    Red = Release not listed in Bluray.com

A couple to add off the top of my head--there's probably a bunch more I'm missing.

All of these are DVDs unless noted otherwise.

The Call of Cthulhu (2007) (a film from the Lovecraft Historic society--was shot/finished in SD so HD might not be possible for this)
Children of the Damned (1964) (also on Vudu in SD)
The Executioner / The Executioner II: Karate Inferno (the 1974 Sonny Chiba films)
Freeway (1996)
Fritz the Cat (1972)
Grand Theft Auto (1977)
Gummo (1997)
Of Mice and Men (1938)
964 Pinocchio (1991)
Rubber's Lover (1996)
The Woodsman (2004)

Alternate Cuts:
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) [Extended Cut, DVD]
Crimson Tide (1995) [Unrated Cut, DVD]
Pearl Harbor (2001) [R-rated Director's Cut, DVD]
Tombstone (1993) [Director's Cut, DVD]

This definitely doesn't have a blu-ray release, and isn't available to stream anywhere I can find. Most certainly not in HD. All we have is this OOP non-anamorphic craptastic DVD. One of my ultimate wants.

Partially done, some DVD editions are missing.

Also, The Woodsman has a Blu-ray while Fritz The Cat is HD on Amazon Prime.

If this list was complete, it would fill over 100 pages of the thread. There are literally hundreds of thousands of films that have no HD version. And 99% of them never will.

I don't think any of these Directors Cuts exist in HD. At least on Netflix, Prime or iTunes.

The only anamorphic DVD of this was apparently released in Scandinavia. Sadly, since Lionsgate controls the rights in North America, this will probably not get a release on Blu. The only hope would be for a European label to release it.
