15 - The Little Mermaid

The Top 20 Films Unreleased on Blu-ray - Part II 1 | TweakTown.com

After years of low quality and low cost productions, a cute red headed mermaid named Ariel saved the fortunes of the Disney corporation, a film who's success spurned the resurgence of Disney as modern storyteller, to be followed by critical and financial successes of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Giving a happy ending to Hans Christian Andersons classic tale, The Little Mermaid is best known for its amazing score and soundtrack, with such classics as 'Under the Sea', 'Kiss the Girl' and 'Part of Your World'.

Due to Disney's seven year turnaround of films, The Little Mermaid isn't due for release again until 2012, where it's expected to be released under the Disney Diamond collection label, and as such given a top class release.


14 - Ben-Hur

Made in 1955 when Hollywood was dying, and at the mercy of the new fangled in home television set, studio MGM gambled $15 million (adjusted for inflation; $120 million) at a time when they were in financial dire straits to remake the biblical classic Ben Hur. Thankfully for MGM, their gamble paid dividends and kept the company afloat.

Now in the hands of Warner Bros studios, Ben Hur is currently due for release on Blu-ray in 2011, with a brand new transfer from restored film elements. Similar to The Bridge on the River Kwai, Ben Hur has never been released in its original 2.55:1 aspect ratio, so film completists should be suitably impressed.
