Default Soylent Green (1973) Coming To Blu-Ray!

awesome news!
Warner is bringing the classic sci-fi film with Charleton Heston to bd on March 29th!
can't wait to check out this very cool film on blu-ray.

Warner Home Video has announced Soylent Green for Blu-ray release on March 29, 2011. This 1973 science fiction movie stars Charlton Heston as a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated New York City gone rotten in 2022. It featured the final screen appearance of the legendary Edward G. Robinson.

Oh I've seen it, I just probably won't buy it because I've cut down significantly on Blu Ray spending.

Yes, I have heard of it and I am a huge Heston fan. I am waiting to hear if it will be a new master or retread, etc...

Have no fear this remains one of my faves. Brilliantly grungy depiction of an overcrowded future, with Charlton Heston on top form as a cop in this highly unpleasant brave new world. However, Edward G. Robinson upstages him as his ageing sidekick - a performance full of dignity and pathos.
The ending is powerful (if predictable) but be under no illusions this remains a fine Sci Fi actioner. Let's hope it does not turn out to be too prophetic in its vision though....

Day One Must Buy for me is this.

I think we can all rest assured that they will be using the master from the dvd release of a few years ago, and I don't think anyone can blame them.
BUT of course we can expect some dnr from that master to be on the bd.
there's no way around that.
It should be a nice upgrade from the dvd and that will work for me.

Not a fan of the film. I don't think it aged well. It's ideas are cool, but the execution is extremely dated. No, I'm not talking about the effects. I'm talking about the pacing and staging of the scenes. It moves slower than molasses going up hill.
