If I've learned anything on this forum about bringing films to blu ray, that shot of Eugene and Isabel by the tree really looks like it's just straight from a print, without the necessary contrast adjusting that doing so would require. Sound plausible?

Probably from a lo-con or a fine grain than a "print", per se.

Eastwood seems to continually sell well for WB. Personally, I'm waiting for a White Hunter, Black Heart BD release.

I could've sworn True Crime was one of the titles in one of the Eastwood boxes, but turns out I was thinking of Blood Work. So, so many Eastwood movies!

The Bridges of Madison County still not out. God, that one is sappy as hell, and if any other people were in the leads it wouldn't have been as good. But it is.

I'm not really a fan of it, but in its defense there are some beautifully directed sequences, the best being Eastwood and Streep's final scene "together" at that intersection.

I got pretty bad food poisoning once while watching it. At the time, I recall blaming the film.

Any word on The Philadelphia Story or Bringing Up Baby? I thought they'd be AAA catalog titles that would've been released years ago.

This is apparently a thing now for WB. To distract us from noticing they're not doing new scans on these films, perhaps.

Never underestimate the selling power of a cheap add-on.

T-Shirt is the new format

Prepare for mess board arguments about thread count and screen printing color fidelity

Well, as Pinky & The Brain (owned by WB...coincidence???) taught us, there is no force in the universe more powerful than free T-shirts.

That tee will make a good tie-in with the new Diane Arbus exhibit at the Met Breuer.

Purple Rain (1984)
Winner of Grammy® and Academy Awards® for its pulsating song score; Purple Rain marks the electrifying movie debut of Prince as The Kid, a Minneapolis club musician as alienated as he is talented. The Kid struggles with a tumultuous home life and his own smoldering anger while taking refuge in his music and his steamy love for sexy Apollonia Kotero. Prince and the Revolution scorch with "Let’s Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4U", "When Doves Cry" and the title song in what Rolling Stone calls “the smartest, most spiritually ambitious rock-’n’-roll movie ever made.” New 2016 1080p HD master.
Special Features:
- Commentary by Director Albert Magnoli, Producer Robert Cavallo and Cinematographer Donald E. Thorin
- First Avenue: The Road to Pop Royalty: Visit the Nightclub Where Prince Started
- Purple Rain Backstage Pass: Behind the Scenes
- Riffs, Ruffles and a Revolution: The Impact and Influence of Purple Rain
- MTV Premiere Party Original Broadcast
- 8 Music Videos: Let's Go Crazy, Take Me With U, When Doves Cry, I Would Die 4 U/Baby I'm a Star, Purple Rain, Jungle Love, The Bird and Sex Shooter
- Trailer

Under the Cherry Moon (1986)
– His Purple Rain took the movie and music worlds by storm. Now Prince stars – and makes his directorial debut – in his lavishly playful second film, Under the Cherry Moon. He plays an American musician living with his pal (Jerome Benton) on the French Riviera and on the bank accounts of bored divorcees. The next object of his affection is a lovely and spirited young heiress (Kristin Scott Thomas in her movie debut). He doesn’t count on confronting the girl’s enraged father (Steven Berkoff). And he certainly doesn’t count on falling in love. But with Prince in charge, you can definitely count on exciting music, shimmering costume, production design and style to burn. This Moon shines! New 2016 1080p HD master.
Special Features:
- Trailer

Under the Graffiti Bridge (1990)
It’s got that Purple Rain feeling through and through. And it’s got The Kid, too! For the first time since Purple Rain, Prince is back as The Kid. And where he goes, there’s music! With "Thieves in the Temple", "New Power Generation", "Elephants and Flowers" and more red-hot Prince tunes from the Platinum-selling Graffiti Bridge soundtrack. What time is it? Party time! Morris Day and the Time play "Release It, Shake!" and more. And you’ll also see and hear George Clinton, Tevin Campbell, Robin Power, Mavis Staples and other hot performers, too. Graffiti Bridge is where the movie meets the music. Cross over on it now! New 2016 1080p HD master.
Special Features:
- Trailer

Of course they would leave out the only Prince film with a real claim to greatness.
