Troma Goes Blu!

As you've heard, Troma has finally making it's Blu-Ray debut! I've made this thread to keep track on the Blu-Rays Troma will release for 2010 and beyond.

First off, we all know Poultrygeist is heading to Blu in February.:

And now, Tromeo and Juliet will be released on Blu-Ray March 30th!:

They're probably going to release newer things that may have film masters for them? Even most of their dvd releases have been VHS quality- used to shrug and roll my eyes but now it really feeds my VHS nostalgia so I'm not complaining.

Yeah, it will probably be a newer flicks for blu ray thing. I do not understand why though, since I am still waiting for widescreem version of The Last Horror Film, Mother's Day, Graduation Day, Girls School Screamers and The Children, to name a few. >.> Oh well.

But most Troma films are shot in full screen (with the expectation of Poultrygeist). It's only Toxic Avenger and Tromeo & Juliet that are, to this day, unconfirmed if they were shot either in full screen or widescreen.

So that means that their Blu-Rays will be 1st gen DVD quality?

The funniest news I have heard in a while. Are they just going to port the already bad dvd masters?

Maybe upconverted DVD transfers to 720p? They could always follow Timeless Media Group and do that!

I wish someone besides Troma had this one and BLOODSUCKING FREAKS, would love to see a real special edition of these two with extras and prestine remastered prints in original aspect ration. You know you're never gonna see anything like that under the Troma label.

That's what I'm saying. They could easily leave the remastering and production to a more capable company like BU, Dark Sky, Lionsgate, etc., who would probably be more than happy to pay a licensing fee and would ultimately produce a more satisfying product. Not to mention Troma fans would buy these things up like hot cakes.

We'll see how this turns out. I'm holding out hope that these will be vast improvements, but they could end up being upconverted debacles like the It's Always Sunny Christmas blu-ray.

Yeah that's pretty funny. They can't even make a half decent DVD how are they going to do with Blu-ray.
