Individual Entry


DVDs I bought or received in the month of September

HD DVD/Blu-ray/DVD
  • 300 (R0 USA, HD DVD)
  • Black Book (R0 UK, Blu-ray)
  • Dawn of the Dead (remake) (R0 USA, HD DVD)
  • House of 1000 Corpses (RA USA, Blu-ray)
  • The Lives of Others (RA USA, Blu-ray)
  • Silent Hill (R0 Germany, HD DVD)
  • Underworld (R0 Germany, HD DVD)
  • Waking the Dead: Series 5 (R2 UK, DVD)
  • Zodiac (R2 UK, DVD)

Another month with high definition content in a dominating position. I’ve essentially stopped buying standard definition material unless it (a) stands no chance of being released in HD or (b) wouldn’t benefit from being in HD (e.g. TV series shot and/or edited in standard definition). Zodiac, the anomaly, was a free review copy.

Do you have any intention of picking up any of Anchor Bay's U.S. Blu-rays? I'd like to hear your impressions of them. Especially since I swear that the majority don't look terribly impressive, but some out there are praising them to the heavens.

Yeah, I’ve got Halloween, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead on their way. I decided not to bother with Evil Dead II based on the negative reports, but I might look into it at a later point. At least the AB releases are all quite reasonably priced.
