For those who missed Twilight Time's Blu-Ray double feature of Thunderbirds are Go/Thunderbird 6... well, their license expired and Kino has picked it up.

Twilight Time was thusly named because they thought it was the twilight of physical media, but it seems Blu-Ray has now been cemented as the format of choice for collectors (with streaming/downloads/redbox/impulse DVD buys for the average Joes). There are so many boutique labels out putting quality releases and the major studios seems all down for licensing their films, and I think Twilight Time's uber-niché place may be unsustainable. I think when the three year rights runs out most of their major (or major 'cult films') films will be scooped up by others. I could totally see Kino or Shout putting out those Harryhausen films, for example. I think something like a 'Sinbad Trilogy' release will be likely. Still, I've watched the hell out of those releases and certainly don't regret buying them. One thing I'll miss if Twilight Time does fade away: Julie Kirgo's liner notes/essay in the insert. I don't always agree with her, but her take is always really interesting. It's something to look forward to with every TT release,

The British Sinbad trilogy looks sick.

Mill Creek's licensed The Rockford Files for a complete series Blu-Ray set. If they do Columbo I'll go bananas. That's one of my biggest wants.

Been waiting for this one for a long time. Coming out on June 6th - http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Hell-in-the-Pacific-Blu-ray/174436/

My DVD does not look good on my LG T.V. screen (it looks shrinked). Blu-ray should fix that.

Yes, the ending does kinda of suck, but still an intriguing (anti-war) movie, with two of my favorites, Mifune & Marvin!

I'm getting into martial arts and other HK films and damn are they not well served by home video in this country: many unreleased, and many that are in poor quality and only available in poorly reedited dubbed versions.

Next month Twilight Time will release the two films that made Jackie Chan a star, Drunken Master and Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, as a Blu-Ray double feature.

That's really cool. You could almost say it was....

still hoping for alligator to go blu ray one day.
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.

TCM's showing Tarantula right now and it's in beautiful HD. Hope a Universal sci-fi Blu-Ray is in the making.
