    Now that the format war is over and Blu-Ray has won, many of the big niche companies have finally made a commitment to the format. Stragglers like Dark Sky and Criterion have finally announced their new titles, and so too have cult masters Blue Underground. Which of Lustig's initial slate interests you most?

    Dead & Buried.

    If I ever switch to Blu Ray and Dead & Buried was available I'd get it.

    Both Argentos of course - this is the kind of visual experience BluRay is designed for, right? :)

    I am most interested in the two Argento's titles The Stendhal Syndrome and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage. I am also very interested in seeing Maniac in Hi Def.:cool:

    Deep And Buried. Not necessarily the best of that list, but I have all the other good ones on DVD and I'll be damned, damned, damned if I'm gonna rebuy my whole bloody collection!

    I am most interested in seeing Maniac in High Definition but since I own that on DVD I am not double dipping, at least until the Blu-ray version is cheap. I voted for Dead and Buried and I will be getting a few others. What I REALLY want is City of the Living Dead on Blu-ray.

    I am in no hurry to step up to the next technological level...but seeing mention of DEAD & BURIED, MANIAC, and VIGILANTE sure make the mouth water.

    With that response your "Dario Argento Nut" user title should be officially revoked.

    Bird.... it's the one I most look forward too.

    Those wanting dead and buried on Blu-Ray are going to be severaly disapointed. That film isn't in good shape, full of tons of grain. Either they're going to have remove it all digitally (yuk), or I reckon it'll look a lot like the DVD.....

    The grit will be there, just much clearer! On another note, I don't have any appreciation for Dead & Buried. What am I missing?

    I of course can't wait for BWTCP, but there are better Argentos that could be released first.

    I'm not yet looking to go Blu-Ray, but if I did, Dead and Buried would probably be my first choice from this list. Bird With the Crystal Plumage would be my second choice. I can't put into words how much I hate The Stendhal Syndrome! I picked up that 2 disc edition from Blue Underground last year on a blind buy and would have to say it was the biggest waste of $20.00 ever! :mad:

    Count me as another Stendhal Syndrome blind buyer that was not impressed. What was with the incredibly pathetic CGI? I bet that would look really good in HD.;)
