Awesome. I love Blade Runner. 5 disk Blue-ray for me

My 300 Blue-ray came today. Not actually watched the film yet (judging be the hi def extras, it'll be lovely looking though ), but i had a look at the extras. Pretty decent. Basically tells you just about anything you would want to know about the making of the film, the graphic novel and the real history.


The only thing that bugs me a bit is not all the extras are in hi def

Other than that it a damn fine disk.

Blade Runner Final Cut was amazing, when I was visiting my family for Christmas, my dad bought it and gave it to me saying "You NEED this movie as a man, NEED IT!"

I think I have only seen the Director's Cut from 1992. What different versions of this movie exist?

I actually liked the movie, but I do not like the hint that Ford (forgot his movie name) might have been an android (were they called different?) too. His role is a lot more human than all the other androids in the movie so that would not make any sense.

I got the 5 disk Blue-ray. It has all 5 versions

The new Final cut, US theactrical cut, international cut, directors cut and the workprint. Look on Wiki if you wanna know the differences.

I've only watched the Final cut. I'm going to check out the workprint soon though. It'a spose to be the most different off versions of the film

Fucking awesome set. Picture is stunning. A lot of care went into this set

As for Deckard possibly being a replicant, i always thought he was myself

Some Batman news


http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/080317/20080317005061.html?.v=1


Batman Begins First Time on Blu-ray(TM) Hi-Def July 8 from Warner Home Video


Batman Begins catapults into the high definition age on July 8th with the Blu-ray™ Hi-Definition release from Warner Home Video. Batman Begins has already been well received in high definition, as the HD DVD release is the top catalog HD seller.

Three new DVD editions -- two on Blu-ray™ Hi-Definition and one in Standard Definition -- will be released prior to the July 18th nationwide theatrical release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Dark Knight.

Leading the Blu-ray™ Hi-Def pack is the Batman Begins Limited Edition Gift Set ($49.99 SRP). The single disc Blu-ray™ Hi-Def Gift Set also includes The Dark Knight Prologue (the first six minutes of the film), a Batman Begins motion art lenticular, a 32-page booklet including an all-new DC Comics comic book adaptation of The Dark Knight prologue, exclusive photos, script pages and story boards. This Gift Set will also include five Batman Begins collectible postcards with never-before printed key art from the theatrical release, as well as $7.50 “movie cash” towards the purchase of an adult ticket to see The Dark Knight in theatres.

A single disc Blu-ray™ Hi-Def version ($28.99 SRP) of Batman Begins will also be available. This also features The Dark Knight prologue.

Batman Begins Limited Edition Gift Set will also be available in a 2-Disc Standard Definition ($39.92 SRP) version. This Gift Set will include a 128MB Batman branded flash drive, five Batman Begins collectible postcards with never-before printed key art from the theatrical release, as well as $7.50 “movie cash” towards the purchase of an adult ticket to see The Dark Knight in theatres.

Further Details:
Warner Home Video has officially announced 1-disc ($24.98) and 2-disc ($29.98) releases of Batman: Gotham Knight in which six interlocking stories reveal how Bruce Wayne became Batman. The film will be released to coincide with the theatrical release of The Dark Knight, on the 8th July. The full details have yet to be revealed, although we can confirm that the 2-disc release will include an audio commentary, a documentary, featurettes, and a sneak peak at the upcoming Wonder Woman film. A Blu-ray release will also be available for $34.99 with all of the 2-disc features.


I'll wait on the Blue-ray Begins. Not really interested in all the extra crap....i'm only interested in a better transfer and different extras

Definitley getting Gotham Knight though. Looks great from what i've seen, except the one where Batman looks like a 16 year old Japanese kid sad

Sadly Justice League: The New Frontier is the only upcoming DC Animation film in Australia and I think it's only the one disc version sad Still buying it, it looks incredible.

Yeah, it is (incredible). Don't fret too much about not getting a second disc - best I can tell, it's JLU episodes that Darwyn worked on (wrote / storyboarded / etc). If you've got the JLU sets, you've got those episodes.

Are you guys not getting the Batman animated TDK tie-in? I figured that'd be a world-wide release. If not, yell at me and I'll get you a copy when it comes out.

I would guess they would be available everywhere. Now that I think of it, I haven't checked. But I am not really up to date when TDK is going to show, actually.

No news just yet. I'll have to wait until July to be sure. If we're getting JL: TNF, then I don't doubt we'll get Doomsday and Gotham Knight eventually.

w00t! Superman: Doomsday and Batman: Gotham Knight are coming out July 2nd.

I tell you. I'm pleased to no end with JL: The New Frontier. About to watch it for the second time with Darwyn Cooke's commentary if time allows. I'll watch it again!
