DVD Shopping Bag: The Look Ahead Fall 2012

Spielberg classics arrive on Blu-ray

So that was the Summer of 2012. Besides the obligatory re-release of Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall this week, the pickens are pretty thin. This is one of those seminal times when I like to look ahead and see what’s on the horizon. Thankfully, Universal Studios is still rocking their 100th Anniversary Celebration and delivering classics on Blu-ray for the first time. We’ll get one in October that most of us will pick up, E.T., and one in August that we ALL will pick up, JAWS. I hate to tell you this, but Universal has already sent a press copy and it’s... (cue the John Williams) ...you’ll have to wait. I can tell you this, Mania is going to bring you something special on August 14th for its release. 

What else is there besides JAWS, E.T., and the re-release of Total Recall? Here is your look ahead for Fall 2012. Remember all release dates are subject to change. Be-warned September 25th will be the most expensive day of the year.

 With Hammer House of Horror and the Universal set, it's going to be a great time for classic horror fans.

 Not to mention the Hitchcock boxed set, Cyanide!  That's the one I'm looking forward to.  And it's a set with his greatest works, not one of the sets with his old British films, which are still good, but are always released in the bargin bins for a couple bucks.  This has Vertigo (his masterpiece, IMHO), Psycho, The Birds, Rear Window, North By Northwest and others!  Granted I already own Psycho and North by Northwest (by far the best transfer that I've seen) on Blu, but I'm in for the others and I know some folks who will be getting my old blus for Christmas!

 Damnit Redhairs, stop prespending my money for me! Lol

I think I need to put out a second mortgage for all this.
