BluRay Announced


FYI,

It is scheduled for release in late September.

Good news! It’s amazing that it has taken this long, isn’t it?

reply

It is, indeed.

Do you mind if I ask you a question? Do you like post-apocalyptic literature? There is an ulterior motive for my question.

reply

I'll think about it for a bit in case I've forgotten something, but I don't believe I've ever read anything else in that category. I keep meaning to pick up The Postman, because I enjoyed the film very much.

reply

My book is on kindle.

reply

In regards to Post-A lit... Have you ever read Earth Abides? I got a copy of it recently, haven't had time for novel reading lately but I'll get around it to it eventually. It's supposed to one of the seminal stories within the genre.

reply

Impressive! I will definitely check it out.

reply

You might also check out my novel on Kindle. It's called The Pale Horse, by yours truly. If you want, I'll PM you the link. Kindle put a nice preview up so you can see if you think you'll like it.

reply

Yes, that's what I meant. I have Kindle Unlimited and it's already downloaded, though I haven't started it yet.

reply

Great!! Thank you.

From what Mick Garris said somewhat recently, the camera negative had never been assembled into a movie, as it was edited on video. I guess he didnt even know it was going to be released. I hope some deleted scenes or bloopers are going to be included. I loved the commentary, one of my favorites.

Just pre-ordered the blu-ray. Looking forward to seeing it.

In the FWIW department, WallyWorld has an SK DVD set that includes Pet Sematary, The Langoliers, The Stand and a couple of others. It's around $20 or so.

Sounds like they’ve used the censored TV version instead if the uncut version used in the Artisan DVD. Might have to pass.

The blu-ray arrived and I watched it yesterday. There were no cuts in it that I noticed.

What was censored?

reply

Actually nothing - turns out this is the uncut version after all!

reply

The only thing is that I should have waited a bit until the price came down, but I wanted to be among the first to get the blu-ray.

The only version I have to get now are the the comics, and (after it comes out) the CBS re-make. I hope I like it (the re-make) as well as I like the 1994 ABC mini-series.

reply

Nice, hows the quality now that its been transferred to HD??

reply

To be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed by the difference. However, my current flat-screen is a very small one and one thing I'll be getting come Christmas is a larger unit.

reply

It's gotta be shit. I don't see them having spent the money to do a bang up job with this and the effects.

What are you talking about?

reply

It was made for tv. No part of this project ever had the HD treatment except for it probably being shot on film. I don't see them spending millions of dollars to go through this mini-series upgrading all the frames for a proper bluray transfer, and re-doing the few effects shots it features, which were certainly rendered on low res computers.

reply

I see what you're saying now. Valid point.
