"Hey guys, we need to come up with a name for these remasters that makes customers think these rereleases are extra special."

"How about 'Diamond' Editions. That works for Disney!"

"No....better than daimonds."

"What's better that diamonds?"

"Luxurious diamonds!"

Come to think of it, maybe in re-releasing Paramount catalog titles, Sapphire already got a bad nickname, Crapphire.

Forrest Gump, probably same discs as were used for Paramount's "Sapphire" editions.

Still wondering why so much effort is being used on existing titles rather than expanding the library a bit ?

Maybe Dragonslayer can get the Luxe treatment? That'd be pretty cool.

They're touting this new series has having "sleek premium Blu-ray packaging" - Looks flimsy to me but having not held one, I may be wrong.

So what exactly are these? Just simple re-releases? Will they have re-mastered video and audio? I see a few of them have new special features. I'd be interested in getting the Gremlins copy if the PQ has been improved.

This is so stupid. They should be focusing their efforts on getting some of those unreleased gems out of their vaults instead of feeding the packaging industry. Are these to replace the digibooks?

So what makes this version of Green Mile superior to the digibook one I already own?

Wait, I did nto realize Forest Gump was WB. You would think they would have put that one in a digibook.

Anyway, why are they doing these when there are a TON of Bogart movies needed to be released?

Forrest Gump was originally released by Paramount. Warner Bros. handles Paramount's catalog releases now from what I understand (don't know if they actually own their library of movies or if they're just simply releasing them under the WB logo now).

I have a few Paramount releases I bought a few months ago (Collateral and Gladiator to name two), and both of those have a new UPC sticker over the original UPC label and on it it says "released by Warner Bros." or something like that. Other than that, it's still the original Paramount disc and packaging. My copy of The Talented Mr. Ripley on the other hand has the WB logo on the packaging itself and on the disc.

Does this mean it is save to finally buy Gladiator if it has WB on the cover?
