The Daily Blu…August 24, 2009

I need to play catch up already this Monday with some news that broke last Friday.  MGM makes Hi-Def boxing fans’ dreams come true with their announcement to bring Rocky: The Undisputed Collection to Blu-ray November 3rd.  I wonder what this means for the majority of us fans who already own parts 1 & 6?  Paramount announced plans to make it a “Blu” Christmas with their holiday classic It’s A Wonderful Life coming to the Blu-ray format on November 3rd.  It seems that they will include both the colorized and the B&W versions of the film.  Last but not least on this glorious Monday afternoon comes reports that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced they are re-releasing Pixar’s animated classic Cars, just in time for Christmas, as a limited edition gift set on November 10th.  Cars: Ultimate Cars Gift Set will feature a Disney Combo Blu-ray release.  That’s a fancy word for an included DVD of the film.  Why!???  Two die-cast cars of Lightning McQueen and Mater will also be included.  The release will be accompanied by a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack to replace the old PCM track on the previous Blu-ray edition.  R.I.P. PCM Audio.  I miss you!

ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
