By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jul 7, 2008 6:47 am

Let's take a look at the Blu-ray awesomeness (or non-awesomeness as the case may be) that will be coming our way this week:

 

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:

 

Rambo

 

Dragon Wars

 

I am intrigued to see just how bad Dragon Wars is, and mildly interested in seeing how old Stallone looks these days. Other than that, its slim pickings.

First Set-Top Blu-ray Recorder Hits Australia

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jun 11, 2008 11:11 am

Now that my Computex spanning embargo has lifted; back to some Blu-ray news!

 

Panasonic have announced that Australian stores should now have in stock the DMR-BW500. Uninspiring model number I know.
What is inspiring, however, is that this marks the first Blu-ray recorder to be released outside of Japan. Even better is the price: $2,299 AUD. A lot of money to be sure, but lower than the first DVD recorder to hit the Australian market in late 2000; they started at $6,499!

 

I have been hassling Panasonic for a review unit for a TweakTown first look, but so far unsuccessful. Of course, persistence is a trait of mine...

 

For now, take a gander at this mechanical beastie.

Transformers Blu-ray - It's Official

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: May 29, 2008 7:43 am

Paramount Home Entertainment U.S. have announced full details for the Blu-ray edition of Transformers. The 2 disc release, which hits US stores on September 2nd, will be a mirror of the previously released HD-DVD disc, but adds on an uncompressed PCM audio track (instead of the lossy Dolby Digital soundtrack on the HD-DVD) and a new video encode, supervised by Michael Bay himself, which takes full advantage of the higher bitrates available on Blu-ray. The disc will also utilise BD Live!, but without specifics.

 

Paramount Home Entertainment Australia have yet to make a similar announcement, but they would be crazy to miss the Christmas window.

Paramount Preparing Transformers Blu-ray

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: May 24, 2008 10:02 am

When Paramount Pictures announced plans to join Blu-ray once again, there was a huge HD-DVD hit that was strangely absent from the lineup - Transformers, and since then Paramount have been quiet on the issue, with speculation they may be holding back the title for the theatrical release of Transformers 2 next July.

 

However now, Paramount UK have begun shipping Blu-ray elements to the British Censorship office (BBFC), a neccessary step before being able to release a title in the UK. This is always a good indicator that a DVD or Blu-ray is soon to be released.

 

You can find the breakdown right here.

Paramount Announce Return To Blu-Ray

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: May 1, 2008 10:37 am

Finally after months of guessing, Paramount has confirmed their triumphant US return to the Blu-ray fold on May 20th by announcing 4 new release titles; Bee Movie, Face/Off, Blades of Glory, Next and re-releases of their previously released titles. These titles will suprisingly be shipping to stores as early as next week. Then in June, Paramount will bow Cloverfield, There Will Be Blood, and The Spiderwick Chronicles.

 

Whilst Paramount Home Entertainment Australia have yet to make a similar announcement, our spies tell us to look for releases beginning in July.

 

And no, no word of Transformers just yet; I just hope they don't hold off until Transformers 2 which will be released in July 2009.
