normal footage always looked good anyway....
But there is a pretty significant difference between the dvd and blu ray in picture quality

My Bloody Valentine wound up being one of my most repurchased titles. I bought the original Paramound DVD, then the Lionsgate Special Edition, and then the Lionsgate Special Edtition on blu-ray when I found it for $5 at Walmart. I've even bought the remake twice!

i wish we could get cherry falls and valentine uncut. i hear the original uncut version of valentine, which actually WAS given an R rating at first but was edited down by Warner Bros, was a lot nastier.

It was actually the director himself who choose to cut out the gorier stuff.
He said so himself on the commentary track on Valentine.
He also "chickened out" on showing some gore in Urban Legends.
But I guess he wanted to make the movies more like "Halloween" and "Texas Chainsaw", where the gore is more implied rather than explicitly shown.

(Denise Richards, etc.) It really needs a Blu-ray release.

Another horror film that needs some attention is Cherry Falls (2000) with Brittany Murphy (RIP sweet girl). It was supposed to get a theatrical release, but got dumped on USA Network in October 2000. The one and only DVD release (which has been OOP for several years) was in Feb./March 2001 and it was a pathetic Double Feature DVD (paired with Terror Tract) which proves that USA Films had no faith in the film selling on its own. Even worse, when Cherry Falls was filming (in prep for a theatrical release, which never happened) it was originally going to be very brutal and bloody. IIRC, the original cut was given a NC-17. Naturally, the director had to tone it down to achieve a "R" rating, because most theaters won't show NC-17 films (stupid!) Well, when it was decided that the film was going to bypass theaters and go the direct to television route (courtesy USA Network) the film had to be completely butchered again because USA wasn't a premium pay channel like HBO, Showtime, or Cinemax where all the goodies could be shown. Also, because USA had commercials, even more cutting was necessary. So, there are three cuts of the film. The heavily butchered television version, the "R" rated DVD version, and the NC-17 version, which has never been available. I'd love to have a proper DVD and Blu-ray release.
I was one of the guys that trashed Valentine, and I still will at any opportunity. Fortunately it's been long enough that I remember very little of it, other than it having a thoroughly unlikeable cast. But as much as I hated Valentine I hated Cherry Falls faaaarrr worse. And no, I will never give either one of them a second chance so forget about even mentioning the thought.

I would love to see an uncut version of Valentine- but I bet chances are slim to none.

Anyone? Anyone?
When shipping will cost you 3X the price of the dvd on amazon, that means yeah it is OOP, but no one cares!

I feel the same way about another pile of shit film called Blue Demon I just revisited. It sucks so bad and is OOP, but used copies start under a buck and new ones don't go over $7. It now waits for the next upgrade and save as that's all it's good for. Should've thrown that fucker out in 2006 when I got it, for some reason I kept it.

Fan of this movie too.

This has been in rotation for a while on HBO (not On Demand). In glorious HD. Side note, Brittany Murphy looks really good in HD in this particular movie. This could be the only way to see this movie in HD. As far as the uncut version, that's another story.

Upcoming schedule: (Might be the last time for a while)

Wed 2/20 9:50AM HBOZ HD East
Wed 2/20 12:50PM HBOZ HD West
Thu 2/28 1:10AM HBO2 HD East
Thu 2/28 4:10AM HBO2 HD West

If anyone is curious about the status of My Bloody Valentine, it appears to have gone to Warner in their deal with Paramount.

Warner will be re-releasing the barebones R-rated Paramount DVD on September 24th.

Thank goodness LionsGate got ahold of it and released the uncut blu-ray before it ended up with Warner.

The artwork is not good at all on the "new" release imo.

Meanwhile, there's some used record store with half a dozen copies they can't move at $4.99.

The reason I rail against this so much is that those Amazon and E-bay sellers are COUNTING on people to do just what Ronnie21 here has done, and that is to spread the word that this is now some kind of hard-to-find collectible. And worse, some who were just about to dump the title will now hold on to it, thinking it'll be another Criterion Salo that goes for hundreds of dollars.

I know you're just passing on the word, a service to other fans of the movie, but we all have to be careful not to scream that the sky is falling just because yet another title has gone OOP.
Well this is one example of OOP being a really bad thing. Look what happened.

Warner must be totally retarded for not putting the Unrated version on their re-release.

Glad I got the Unrated BD safe in my collection. I doubt it will ever be released again, unless some european label gets the rights to the uncut version in the future.

This is one of my top 5 slashers, and Im thinking about getting another copy (if I can find one) as a spare, just in case

Still a few left on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Bloody-Valenti...entine+blu+ray

So it might be the right time to snatch a copy before the prices go through the roof
