I hope Hatari comes out better than it did in the European and Japanese blu ray releases. I really love that movie, and I want to see it at its best, for once.

Given what little I know there's no reason to believe it will be any different to the existing poxy BD. Alas.

I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show were listed on Amazon and then recently pulled. I hope it's because they're reconsidering the price, as there's no reason these seasons should have to be on 6 blu-rays for $130 SRP.

I wonder if this will have the new special features Cameron Crowe talked about having done for such a release awhile back.

This release has been moved to 5/13/14

----

Digital Bits is also reporting the following:

Chicken Run (2000) / Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) / Flushed Away (2006) - 5/13/14 (DreamWorks Animation catalog)
The Road to El Dorado (2000) / Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) / Joseph: King of Dreams (2000) - 5/13/14 (DreamWorks Animation catalog)

Weird that they'd throw Joseph: King of Dreams in with Road to El Dorado / Sinbad instead of doing a double feature with Prince of Egypt.

EDIT: Appears Digital Bits was wrong here as amazon.com has these triple features listed as $15 DVDs.

Beaver's El Dorado review cites considerable edge enhancement. Anyone have the European release and can comment on whether that transfer had similar issues?

Hatari! is reviewed on dvdbeaver. It looks like the U.S. disc of Hatari! is the same kind of hatchet-job as the film has been enjoying in other regions.

McLintock! special edition BD May 13th.
This will be interesting to compare to the currently available Olive BD.

If Paramount uses the same transfer (which they will, I think), this seems like a far better edition compared to the existing Olive one (solely based on the amount of extras).

Wouldn't Paramount have access to the negative via their deal with Batjac, where Olive only has access to a exhibition print?

The Nutty Professor (1963) - via Warner

Listed as a "50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition" (WB has been poor at math the last few years), and the only art work released so far is of one of their big boxes, so hopefully it gets a non-uber box release.

I got so excited because I saw a huge box and Jerry Lewis. But then I saw it was only a single-title release, probably with a collectible mini-beaker or martini glasses

Yes but also interesting to compare with the recent Paramount via Warner John Wayne BDs that were released digitally scrubbed.
This one seems to be coming from Paramount themselves, not from Warner.

Exactly. Theoretically Paramount should be able to produce a better disc, but their track record with Wayne titles is very poor. To greater or lesser degrees Hatari, El Dorado, and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are all overly harsh and digital looking. The two color films are especially bad looking, so I wouldn't get my hopes up too much for McLintock!

Warner can only work with what Paramount gives them, so I wouldn't blame them for El Dorado or Hatari issues. Those were clearly ports of the international releases, down to the TrueHD audio when Warner and Paramount have been using DTS-HD MA for a number of years now. Paramount obviously didn't feel compelled to re-do their masters.

Sounds like it's a bit of a kitchen-sink release - for $55 MSRP. Personally I can wait it out for a standalone, but I'm sure die hard fans will enjoy it. From the press release:

WBHE is releasing the four-disc Collector’s Edition with personal input from Mr. Lewis, who has helped compile lots of entertaining extra content for this release. Highlights include a new featurette, Jerry Lewis: No Apologies, an intimate look at “The King of Comedy”; a 48-page book of the film’s original story boards; a 44-page book of excerpts from Jerry's cutting script with personal notes; and a recreated “Being a Person” book, written by Jerry exclusively for the film’s crew. Adding to the offering is the very funny CD collection, Phoney Phone Calls, 1959-1972, with private prank calls secretly recorded by Lewis during those years

The Nutty Professor 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition ($54.99 SRP) will include the film in DVD format as well as Blu-ray, along with DVDs of two other well-known Lewis comedies, Cinderfella and The Errand Boy.
