Default "Caligula" Coming To Blu-Ray!!

Wow! The classic Caligula is apparently set to come to Blu-Ray! If you have never heard of this movie, it's one of those moldy old titles that most people on here could care less about.

Thanks for the info and link. I'm not sure I believe it though. I mean, do you really think that Image Entertainment would jump into Blu-ray with Caligula as their first title?! I personally think that would be a huge gamble. The timing of this rumor is suspect too, with the recent announcement of the awesome-looking 4-disc Imperial Edition DVD on the horizon. In any case, I hope to hear something definitive from Image before October when the 4-disc set is out, because I'm interested!

I have the SD which is so so, so I may look into this. Thanks Arkadin.

And HD DVD people say that Blu-ray won't distribute porn...

Well, it's really classified as a porn movie. It just has some hardcore porn scenes in it. And graphic violence, of course.

I saw the X rated version a the theater when it came out. I wouldn't call it porn. It certainly has a lot of X rated material, but it does attempt to try to tell a story - a story about the excesses of the Roman Empire elite.

But, I've walked out on two movies in the cinema in my life:
- Forrest Gump, for being way too long and way too boring
- Caligua, for being way too gross & demented. The wedding night of the soldier did it for me.

I'll pass on this even as a rental.

I want more definitive news for this favorite before getting all riled up.

I love Caligula and already own the unrated version, in the purple case. If this turns out to be true, I'll really be excited because the SD DVD is in need of a serious upgrade.

Hey Arkadin, have you switched sides...I was under the impression that you were a HD DVD supporter?

That should be in my "cringe" thread.

I own the same SD as you do. Id does indeed need some serious remastering. The grain is aweful. The interview with Bob Guccione is priceless.
