Here I'm all looking forward to the NOTLD remake... and it's Twilight Time.

...and right about now I want to backhand the dumb asses at big name studios who give fucking Twilight Time these 3,000 print run exclusives at double to triple price. Seriously, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD remake isn't a 30-35 dollar film. It's not. It's what 5-10 dollar bins are made of.
SMALL STUDIOS who would otherwise not put out content, THEY are great for TT, as we'd never see the titles as some companies can't afford to put them out. This? This is just shit.

So how long before the release date does TT make these available for pre-order? I might pick-up Enemy Mine and don't want to miss it like I missed Fright Night.

Usually 30 days prior to the release date.
I'm definitely in for Enemy Mine as that is a childhood favorite of mine and it has an absolutely awesome Maurice Jarre score which should sound awesome in 4.0 or 5.1 DTS HD-MAI don't care what the white mon say, Santa Clause was a black mon.

+1 on Enemy Mine. Great nostalgic value for me as well; in addition to it being a quite decent sci-fi overall.

Ugh, I really fucking hate this Twilight Time shit. I'd really like As Good As It Gets on bluray but after thinking about it, cannot justify the $30 price at all. Just saw Enemy Mine for the first time last year and found it surprisingly good. I'd have gladly paid $10-$15 for it but I guess it's just another bluray I'll never own now.

Surprised that Enemy Mine is coming to TT, considering it's a Fox title.

Also, let me just say, I think this is fucking ridiculous. I'm not a fan of the Twilight Time business model, and the truly astronomical price they charge for basically barren discs, based on masters that they had no part in creating (and even then, occasionally don't look so hot).
Both of these movies could've--and should've--been released by their respective studios (well, the NotLD remake could've come from Image or something). That goes for several of these TT titles announced/released recently.Well, I don't want Fop, goddammit. I'm a Dapper Dan man.

If you're a big fan of one of these movies and think it's worth $30, buy it. If you don't think it's worth $30, don't buy it. Simple as that.
Personally, I kind of like Enemy Mine, but not enough to pay $30 for it. So I'll pass. Doing so, I don't believe it will leave any great void in my life to not own a copy of Enemy Mine. If I were a massive Enemy Mine fanboy and it would kill me to not have a copy in my collection, then I'd pony up the money.
These are the decisions that we have to make as adults.
"Yeah, but I'd definitely buy a copy if it cost $10," you may say.
Well, it's not $10. And if the movie isn't worth more than $10 to you, then I'd venture to say that you don't really have a burning need to own it in your collection. Perhaps it's time to just shrug it off and move on with your life.

Sounds to me like the Twilight Time business model isn't that bad. They are releasing discs that hardly no one will buy. $30 or $5, the buy rate for something like Enemy Mine isn't going to be that different. Not in this age of streaming, when people can watch shit like enemy mine all day long for 8 bucks a month.
I think Enemy Mine is a kick ass movie, but I will not pay that much for any movie. Maybe back in 96 when owning movies was still a new thing to me, but not now. Not worth it.

The problem isn't just the price.
The problem is that this type of business model hurts the viability of blu-ray overall. The availability of titles is a major factor in people being willing to adopt a new format. Every time that TT releases a title, it's one more that we aren't going to see broadly available in stores.
One of the other factors that discourages people from Blu-rays is the impression that the discs are more expensive than DVDs. And TT, as well as the used market created by them, helps to reinforce this idea.
