Out of those proposed releases, there's only 5 or less movies I don't already have on BD or DVD. Those packages aren't for me!
a little late for the collector who already has most of the listed titles...BUT great for others who don't really collect.
I wonder if they are BDR?
'The Pegasus Order' — The Best Way to Watch the MCU
Just started watching the Marvel movies in "The Pegasus Order".
Watched Iron Man 2 last night. I enjoyed it more than I remembered enjoying it.
BD: I Kill Giants
Stan & Ollie
Had been wanting to explore them so bought this DVD. Touching, but very short, focussed a very brief part of their lives.
"The Long Riders"
I watched Kino's BD of The Sign Of The Cross last night. It looked relatively good for a 1932 movie. I'd never seen Fredric March and Charles Laughton that young before.
After many years, re-watched "Gandhi", on UHD disc. Beautiful film, if somewhat of a sanitized bio of the man. Ben Kingsley holds the whole thing together with his committed performance; playing an idealist is always tricky, but here it works. Lovely re-master in 4K/HDR, a grand viewing over two discs.
Fire Down Below DVD
Pitch Black 4K UHD
Blinded by the light, Bohemian Rhapsody & Warhorse
I got to the part of my equine history book & report where I had to read & write about warhorses. I thought that as warhorse was written for children & a film made of the story it would be milder & get me ready for all the gory details which are in the adult equine history book. I enjoyed the film better than I thought though I did find it upsetting. I found it touching too.
After that I watched 8 days a week.
Have this in the Warner flipper/snapper case DVD variant, too; always thought this was one of his most underrated actioneers.
He definitely kicks ass in this, even though some of the fight/action sequences are horribly laughable in terms of the choppy, uneven editing when viewed today...
The Grey Fox, Richard Farnsworth as "The Gentleman Bandit". Great movie and really looks good on blu-ray.
Last night watched Vantage Point BR
Got my stash from Kino yesterday:
The Arabian Nights
Ali Baba & The Forty Thieves
Son Of Ali Baba
and to cleanse my palette
Lovers And Other Strangers
On the topic of this box set...I remember when we were talking about how this complete collection would never come to Blu-ray some pages back when I posted images from another entry I watched in this DVD set, but I discovered there is a Stardate Collection that wraps together all the original and next generation films in one set on Blu. So I guess Paramount DID get around to releasing all these in one set; from what I understand, though, they were merely port-overs of the already existing discs from the separate original and next-gen Blu-ray sets, and the packaging is just more compressed (which no doubt irked fans who waited for a complete collection).
