LATEST UPDATE:

 

CENTENNIAL SUMMER had a scheduled blu-ray release date (8.12.14) through Twilight Time, but was cancelled last minute due to rights issues of some sort.

 

Pretty unfortunate.

Did you mean 8.12.16 instead of 14? That happens to be my birthday-- there goes my present to myself. LOL

Copied this info from another site without looking at date. I am thinking this title was supposed to be released in 2014 and was cancelled. Not sure what is going on. Will post any updates when possible. A big disappointment.

The New World (2005) - July 26

 

I've often felt that, in theory, Terrence Malick makes the kind of films that I would really like. In practice, though, I find that's not the case. I so wanted to like -- love -- Days of Heaven, but I just didn't. The New World is the exception. I thought it was wonderful. There were at least two versions of it, hopefully they'll both be on the DVD.

 

Manohla Dargis, reviewing for The New York Times, wrote a review for each version, one in December 2005, another the following month, when an edited version of the film was released.  I remember having seen the film around that time and thinking how perceptive the reviews were.

What does it matter who releases them, as long as they're being made available by someone in a quality format..right?

That's a valid point. But doesn't it also mean the video and audio quality might be better (as in, you get what you pay for)? I know people were complaining about the quality of the Fox releases.

FANNY which stars Leslie Caron will make its Blu Ray debut on 9/20 by Shout Factory. The film was originally released by WB whose rights to the film may have expired. It seems unlikely that WB would dole it out to another company for release, something they never seem to do.
