I sure hope The Brood gets a USA release.

In the end, the US release is also gonna be 3 single discs.

I believe it all comes down to the extras.

There's no way Shout's going to do separate Scanners DVDs - it'll be a double feature. Or even a triple feature if they can cram one more movie with similar appeal. I think Second Sight might be the winner in the extras dept. - Criterion's been a little stingy in that area lately.

Plus, from what we know, the UK is getting Blu-rays of II and III while the US is getting DVDs of those two.

Are we 100% sure that there will even be a Criterion yet? I really love this movie (and THE BROOD) and would hate to miss out.

So... who the fuck is holding onto Shivers so tightly? I would've expected a Criterion release of that film years ago.

A review of Second Sight's UK SCANNERS blu at Blu-Ray.com:

Still waiting for the Criterion announcement to see how they compare, but it sounds like this one's a pretty darn good release.

I ordered this. Probably will also pick up the Criterion edition when it comes out (still not considering it official until I see a press release) but I don't want to sit around until October or whenever they're planning on releasing it to see the film in high-def. This is available now, I'm going to enjoy it now.

Actually, unless Criterion comes up with a super-packed SE (unlikely) I'll probably just stick with Second Sight's release.

My exact thoughts + this release looks great anyway; I paid a bit more than Amazon UK because I bought it at a convention but, imo, it was well worth it! Gotta get the other 2 now...

I got seconds sights release of the first Scanners on friday and watched it yesterday. I'am very pleased with it looks and sounds great and the extra's add up to just over and hour. I'am sure Criterions might be have a slightly better PQ and maybe a commentary .
