Nightmare Before Christmas
The Elephant Man - previous dvd edition I had was awful quality
Breathless
Pitch Black

All look amazing. I am currently trying to decide if to change my Dark Knight dvd to blu ray, heard the imax filmed scenes are astonishing. So if it comes down in the sales, I'll get it, but not getting rid of my dvd, it's the limited edition mask box.

The Dark Knight does look amazing. I still have my limited mask edition.

I recently got the Alien films on BD with the egg statue. Haven't watched them yet.

I'm really not one to buy movies.
I tend to find that once you own them, you don't ever actually get to watch them.
Whereas if you're in the mood, it's easy to go out & hire the flick you want.

Having said this, I've bought both Sin City & 300 as dvds & then up-graded them to blu-ray. Peter Jackson's King Kong is another blu-ray I want to get.

Dark knight and batman begins.
For me if i have it on DVD i will not upgrade to bluray for the 10% to 20% better picture. the one exception may be Star wars when they release that (if they tweak some of the effects for the better picture). By this i mean remove wires etc that weren't visible before. i just recently watched blade runner in HD and you could see the wires holding the floating cop cars. That's just bad and IMO some movie just don't need to be converted and need some of the grainyness.

I kind of know where you are coming from, but at least it's only done every few years not like the crappy avatar released in dec 2009 then on bluray in april 2010 then back to theaters in september 2010 then bluray again in november.
for star wars
back in 1991 i got the VHS
1997 the special edition.
1999 vhs episode 1
2001 dvd episode 1
2002 dvd epsiode 2
2004 dvd of special editions 4-6
2005 dvd episode 3
2006 dvd special and original 4-6 (i didn't get this one)
2008 dvd box sets of PT and OT (i didn't get these either)
2011 bluray of all 6
2012-2017 episodes 1 - 6 back in the theater.

The time frame between the releases isn't bad and no one is forcing anyone to get it. But some people will wait for box sets etc before they buy so i can see why the companies do it. in the cas of the 2006 releases, the only reason this was done was because some of the fans were screaming that they wanted the original cuts on DVD. they are doing the same thing for LOTR. they released the theatrical versions on bluray and the extended cuts will follow. why didn't they just release the far superior extended cuts and leave it at that? answer: money and it must be so cheap for them to produce these different copies that they can and don't care.

I will have to see what they do with the releases for the bluray before i get them
what i would like to see
1. fix lukes saber on the falcon episode 4
2. they will probably add digitized yoda in episode 1 (it was done for the star wars concert)
3. star destroy hitting deathstar 2 to be redone.
4.fix the matt lines in some of the space battles.

Avatar was released 4 times in the span of 10 months. 2 theater releases and 2 DVD. That is worse than star wars being released in 97 VHS then 04 DVD then 06 (same as 04 just with original cuts ) then 2008 box sets of both trilogies (which are exactly the same as the previous DVDs )

2004 dvd of special editions 4-6
2006 dvd special and original 4-6 (only because the fans bitched they wanted the unalterd versions)
2008 dvd box sets of PT and OT (these were exactly the same as the 2004 OT and all the previous DVD's of the PT)
2011 bluray of all 6

Hmm OK, but at least he didn't add one scene to each release to intise us to get it. smile
I heard the one in 2006 with the unaltered versions the picture quality sucked on them? and you may of well just put in a vhs copy.
