As we suspected, my favorite stop-motion dinosaur is finally going to make its blu-ray debut!!!

Image


No release date yet however, and it only contains one special feature "Return to the Valley featurette with SFX wizard Ray Harryhausen". Thought perhaps, they would include the dino section from "The Animal World" as they did in the DVDs.

However, I do have a feeling that segment will be included on the special features when "The Black Scorpion" gets its blu-ray treatment (that or "The Giant Behemoth").

The turnaround for the Archive's announcement to release date is brief. I imagine we'll get this in a month or so.

Sweet! I only saw this movie within the last two years via Netflix DVD. Been really tempted to buy the DVD but so glad I held out for the BD!

I was never crazy about that cover art. It makes him look bloated and thus slow, and not as agile as we would see in the movie. But it looks like WB is sticking with that cover for their BD. Something like my avatar, would have been better, I think.

But that is only a small complaint. Just happy that this is finally getting its blu-ray due. And now, all of Ray Harryhauen's movies can be seen in that format, except "The Animal World" and either WB will include the dino sequence on another stop-motion BD, or have the entire movie itself on BD.

Yup, I just got an automatic e-mail from Blu-ray.com, stating that it will become available in four weeks! How cool is that!

That's awesome news I'll probably skip the Mummy since I never really cared for those films but Dracula is a must.

Finally BTB&TB is completed on Blu Ray:
3/21/17

Also

From Funimation May 30th ($29.98 SRP). Of course unfortunately this is only the English Dub. However it beats trying to get the Lionsgate DVD set from 2007 which is OOP.

Discotek has been getting a lot of great Matsumoto series. If they could only pry Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers) from Voyagers hands.

as long as they have the dubs i will buy them.
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

where did all the happy endings go?, where could all the good times be.

Looks like along with Batman TB&TB season 3 Blu ray, they are releasing a couple of more items that have been long awaited...

March 14th I can finally complete this series, as I never saw this on TV, and have never been able to see it onlineImage

and...March 28th they are finally starting this: Image

So after March 28th...the only DC Animation not to get a home media release by WB will be Filmation's Superboy from the 1960's, Static Shock seasons 2-4, and Legion of Superheroes Season 2....almost there...

Rumor time: KINO's apparently hit the motherland in terms of Disney-owned TV movies from the '70s, which means we might see The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler on Blu-Ray soon.

Oooh, Kino had licensed The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly from MGM and will release, for the first time on Blu-Ray, the original US theatrical version!

https://www.facebook.com/KinoLorberStud ... =3&theater

For those who don't know: TGTBTU received a bit of Lucas-esque special edition around the early '00s which fiddled with the sound effects and re-inserting scenes deleted from the original English language version. Unfortunately, no English audio existed for those scenes, so the characters were dubbed by the distractingly older sounding Eastwood and Wallach, while Van Cleef who was dubbed by an impressionist.

The Warner Archive has announced six catalog titles getting Blu-Ray releases next month, including From Hell It Came! That's right, the movie with the half-man, half-tree monster. I think it's safe to say that any genre film the studio owns is likely for release.
