And how did you spend YOUR NFL Draft weekend?
This seems to be a week where things just aren’t happening news wise (granted, the $299 HD-DVD player remark was clarified to be a little vaguer this week, but that’s about it), but there’s some fun things on the disc release front, most of it for Blu-Ray fans. Sony pimps out The Patriot, Wild Things and Flatliners on 7/3. Lion’s Gate puts Season Two of Weeds out on 7/24, and Waiting comes out one week prior. Warner will be rel…asing Music and Lyrics to both formats on 6/12, while Magnolia does the same thing for The Host on 7/24 and Paramount doing it for Ghost on the same day. On the bad news though, Sony has delayed the release of Meatballs, which was due to be released on 6/5, to a date to be announced.
For disc releases this week, Dreamgirls arrives on both platforms, though without a lossless track on either. HD-DVD buyers get to enjoy Alpha Dog and The Hitcher remake, while Blu-ray buyers decide if they want to add Happily N’Ever After to their library.
That’s it for me this week, and as always high definers, keep the brightness low and the resolution high!
