    I'd like to get a tally of the DVDs that are not on Blu-ray. It would be quite beneficial in thinning the DVD collection...
    If this has been done before recently please delete or combine...Thanks Guys!

    For the most part DVDs are good enough for me. I don't own any Blu-ray discs but I have a nice Blu-ray player that I found used a few years ago which is waiting to be hooked up if something comes out that interests me. If Queen and their management/record label would ever agree to release all the Queen - Greatest Flix video releases on Blu-ray plus the many other promo videos not contained within than I would buy it for sure.

  7. Quick Change - It's amazing to me this underrated Bill Murray movie has been released by no one. It came out in 2006 on DVD.

    You could just search on blu-ray.com, being sure to change the country from the US to the entire world, if you are just trying to see if a DVD has been released on BluRay absolutely anywhere.

    But there are thousands upon thousands of titles that haven't made it to BluRay yet, and maybe never will. The big ones, True Lies and The Abyss, are the most famous. But every other indie film that made it to DVD is also not on BluRay.

    One thing you'll notice on the lists here are that a lot of titles are from Paramount. They were probably the worst major studio in terms of releasing their older films on blu-ray....including three Oscar winning Best pictures- "Wings", "The Greatest Show on Earth" and "Ordinary People". Also missing are such classics as "Roman Holiday", "Detective Story" and "Hud".

    Probably my most desired title on blu-ray from them is "Catch-22"... this would be a natural for Criterion

    Wings is available in both Region A and Region B:

    Wings Blu-ray Release Date January 24, 2012

    Wings Blu-ray Release Date January 27, 2014

    Hud has recently been released in Australia, and is, apparently, region-free:

    Hud Blu-ray Release Date September 4, 2019

    IIRC, we didn't even get the original theatrical version on DVD?

    I'm hoping that 20th century Fox Video issues "Brackens World" on DVD or Blu-Ray. There are only 41 episodes, its not a big deal to do. I man, even issue it on a "On Demand" basis. Its worth it just to see Leslie Nielson trying to act seriously.
