Four previously unreleased in HD Steven Spielberg flicks are getting the Blu-Ray treatment!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some exciting news for us die hard Steven Spielberg fans (ie everybody in the world ever). You know those collections of titles that studios will bundle together? They always have one or two good movies and then a bunch of crap that wouldn't sell?
I get the feeling that's what Universal thinks it's doing with their newly announced “Steven Spielberg Director's Collection,” but they are mistaken. These “throwaway titles” are movies I've been wishing were on Blu-Ray for years and I betcha I'm not alone.
You get eight of the Beard's movies, four of which haven't seen an HD release yet. The newbies are Duel, The Sugarland Express, 1941 and Always. The other, more famous titles that you probably already own are Jaws, ET, Jurassic Park and The Lost World.
Sadly the new to Blu flicks are light on special features. It looks like both Duel and 1941 have their DVD features ported over and poor Sugarland and Always are left with “theatrical trailer” as their only bonus content.
The transfers on Jaws and ET are outstanding, JP and Lost World are fine... no word yet on whether or not the new titles got restored all proper-like, but even if they're just cleaned up high-def ready versions I'll be happy to welcome them into a 1080p world.
The set will be released October 14th and can be pre-ordered for $139.99. Click the image below to do just that!
What's left? Munich? His other, less good and more forgotten TV movies like Something Evil? Am I forgetting something?
