    Oh yeah!? Fuck, you'd think that with 2010 being the film's 35th anniversary that they'd release it now. But oh well, can't wait. Jaws NEEDS a serious remaster. Jaws 2 would be nice as well.

    Anyway, top 10:

    - Jaws (Steven Spielberg, 1975)
    - The Conversation (Francis Fod Coppola, 1974)
    - Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1976)
    - Blow Out (Brian De Palma, 1981)
    - Dressed to Kill (Brian De Palma, 1980)
    - Le Samourai (Jean-Pierre Melville, 1967)
    - The Crying Game (Neil Jordan, 1992)
    - Thelma & Louise (Ridley Scott, 1991)
    - James Dean Collection (East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, Giant)
    - Band of Outsiders (Jean-Luc Godard, 1964)

    Honorable mentions: The Fog (John Carpenter, 1980), Phantasm (Don Coscarelli, 1979), Blue Velvet (David Lynch, 1986), Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (Karel Reisz, 1960), The Pianist (Roman Polanski, 2002), Rosemary's Baby (Roman Polanski, 1968)

    Yes I'm aware of that but I don't have any plans to buy a regionfree player. Martyrs is Region B locked. I'm crossing my fingers for both REC 1 & 2 to be regionfree but not holding my breath.

    1. Star Wars Ultimate Set (All 6 movies, preferably with both cuts of the original trilogy, although I know Lucas will never release it like that)
    2. Jaws ( How has this not been released yet!?)
    3. Friday the 13th Ultimate Set (First 8 Movies in a Box with lots of extras)
    4. Suspiria
    5. Pulp Fiction
    6. Indiana Jones Trilogy (You can add the last movie as well and make it a Complete Box Set)
    7. The Fog
    8. Halloween 2-7 (I know they can't be released as a box set together, but any release would be nice.)
    9. Phantasm (A Box set of this would also be nice with all four movies)
    10. Demons (Throw in part 2 as well, although I don't care that much about the sequel)

    Really, I'd be happy with any Speilberg, Carpenter, Argento, Fulci, or Tarrantino flick on Blu.


    Top 10 Movies that need re-released on Blu

    1. Army of Darkness (Re-released with both cuts and lots of extras and a better transfer)
    2. Halloween Ultimate Edition (This could be released like the Dawn of the Dead set and include all the missing extras from the previous releases as well as the TV cut of the movie and the previous colour timed version from the Limited Edition set.)
    3. Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition (With all 3 cuts of the film and all the missing extras)
    4. The Thing (With all extras)
    5. Blade Trilogy (With extras)
    6. Kingdom of Heaven Director's Cut (With all extras)
    7. Dawn of the Dead (Remake) (With all extras)
    8. Evil Dead 2 (With a better transfer and all the extras from previous releases)
    9. Superman 1 and 2 (With both cuts for both movies and all previously released extras. Hell they should just release a Blu Ray version of the Ultimate Collector's Edition Set.)
    10. Commando (With both cuts and extras.)

    There's a bunch more that need to be properly released. Makes me mad how a lot of these Blu Rays have been rushed out.

    Not a great film but was a guilty pleasure of mine for years as a teenager. A Blu-Ray of this would look fucking amazing.


    My list (region 1 only!):

    1. Tales from the Crypt: Seasons 1-6 (with the original intro / opening title sequence on every single one of the episodes)

    2. Several Troma acquisitions (an uncut Rabid Grannies, Dead Dudes in the House - and finally fix the ultra-dark quality to the video transfers, Def by Temptation, Monster in the Closet, Vegas in Space ...and maybe Frostbiter and Evil Clutch)

    3. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (fix that audio!)

    4. Friday the 13th Parts IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII

    5. Argento's Deep Red, Suspiria, Inferno, Tenebre, Phenomena, and Opera (preferably...in a boxset together)

    6. Sorority House Massacre II and Hard to Die / Tower of Terror

    7. The Fog (1980), Phantasm, and The Howling - ehhhh, why not just throw 3 Avco-Embassy's into the same pot? Speaking of pooling choices together...;

    8. Cat People - The Hunger - From Beyond - Dust Devil (ultra-stylish horror, maybe even style-over-substance)

    9. Psycho II, Psycho III, and Psycho IV (preferably together)

    10. Björk: Volumen (entire music videos collection from 1993 to 2007)
