The next Blu-Ray release I'll get excited about will be The Abyss.  Maybe also True Lies.

 

**WAIT, HOLD EVERYTHING, CRITERION DID AN "ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS" RELEASE!  ORDERING THAT IMMEDIATELY!

 

****Still no Across the Pacific Blu-Ray, gawwwddd...

post #6702 of 6724
Just FYI...that Australian blu of The Dead Zone is the goods. It is definitely region free despite the cover only saying region B. And it looks and sounds great. It was worth the $29.99 to me. Kinda odd that it still hasn't had a US release.

Anyways...that was all just in case anyone gives a rip..

Just found out today that the GUARDIANS VOL 2. 3D blu is a Best Buy exclusive. The first Marvel film to do so.

I own all their other 3D blus, and the first GUARDIANS is the best home 3D I've seen. I can never get my hands on these Best Buy releases so this is a huge disappointment for me.

Mentioned this before but this is what you do. On Monday keep checking the BB web site to see if you can order the blu as a store pickup item. Depending on the stores near you they may not show up in their inventory until Monday night, maybe even Tuesday morning. But that's the best way to get one.

Isn't that ANNOYING?
 

I was under the impression that they simply weren't doing a 3D release (which I found insane because the 3D for the movie was really nice).  But I learned that only Best Buy has it as an exclusive 4K and 3D bluray steelbook.

 

So I pre-ordered that online.

God dammit. I'll be home with three kids, an hour away from the nearest BB. So far nothing at that one, either.

Maybe I'll be lucky enough to have someone gouge me on eBay.

I'm not sure if the 3D version of KONG SKULL ISLAND was another best buy exclusive, but it was the only place that had a set for the 4K and 3D version together.

 

That's no longer available, so I did end up going to ebay for it, where it averages around $54 bucks.  I think it was $39.99 on best buy's site.

post #6708 of 6724
Yeah I was late on KONG and ROGUE ONE, too. I never ended up getting Kong.

I know 3D has whithered, but it really burns me that they've had all the other blus so accessible. I thought it was safe. My local FYE had DR. STRANGE 3D for $25 (It looks amazing, better than my experience in the theater). And I was really stoked to see GOTG2 on my tv
post #6709 of 6724

oh man, STRANGE looks SO nice in 3D.

 

For all my hatin' on ROGUE ONE, I used some ebay bucks I had built up to buy the Korean 3D release of it!  

 

LOOKS VERY NICE!

 

SUCH WONDERFUL SCALE!!!

 

in 3D!

 

 

'haw!

Don't worry about what it says now. Doubt most stores update their inventories until Monday or even Tuesday morning. That's the time to check.

Just a heads up to Nooj or anyone else looking for the Guardians 2 4k/3d combo: it is currently in stock for shipping from Best Buy here.

post #6712 of 6724

It must use cookies to localize, because that link just sends me to the same page I've seen that lists that it's not available to ship.  It's for pick-up only and there isn't one anywhere near me.

 

Hopefully the pre-order I made last week goes through and I do get mine shipped.

post #6713 of 6724
for Wonder Woman, I ordered a set from Korea off of eBay that will include the 4K, the 3D, and the 2D bleu-rae discs

As far as I know, there's no set that will have all those in the US.

Criterion Edition of Only Angels Have Wings and Blu-Rays of To Have and Have Not, Key Largo, Dark Passage, and To Have and Have Not arrived today. SO EXCITED.

Were you able to track one down?

post #6716 of 6724
mine is supposed to have arrived in my mailbox...

Thanks for the checkup! I just got home and tragically was not able to get one. I didn't see it in stock online, but took the chance of a 50 minute minute drive into the mountains into the mountains and crossing into West Virginia (Yep, the closest Best Buy is out of state in the West Virginia mountains). And they didn't have any in stock. I settled for the standard blu for now until I can track it down. I WILL get it.

I also got Ash Vs Evil Dead on blu, Lucifer season 2, and bought a friend the new WALKING DEAD. I'm not into the show, myself.

Mine is 'Due to operating conditions, your package may be delayed. / delivery will be rescheduled.' I don't know what the fuck that means. I'm in L.A. It's not like there's inclement fucking weather. Fuck UPS.

 

@Raynis: Best Buy site still says it's available for shipping.

Another great Bluray cover:

 

 

Looks like wholesome fun for the whole family.

post #6720 of 6724
makes it look like the young girl is trying to infiltrate the pleasant family

a la the hand that rocks the cradle
post #6721 of 6724

Poor Clom didn't have the clout to get BoH a 4K release like James Gunn.

 

Disney's gonna put out Episode 9 in 720p only, just to show him who's boss.

The OAHW Criterion is super swell. I'd love to see how Key Largo looks on Blu-Ray.

post #6723 of 6724

I grabbed Lost In America, Dr. Strangelove, Being There, All That Jazz, In the Mood For Love, and Tampopo.

 

Strangelove wins the pack-in prize for its miniature Plan R packet.

post #6724 of 6724

I grabbed BEING THERE.  Haven't watched it yet due to a lack of time but it'll happen soon.
