Default Is Silent Hill ever going to be rereleased??

I am still waiting for Sony to rerelease Silent Hill, but do it properly this time. When do you think that is going to happen? I want the movie to look fantastic, not just look like the DVD upconverted.

There are quite a few titles that can do with a new and proper transfer. Some of the early experiments that Sony and other studios performed in the infancy of Blu look more like blunders than honest attempts at starting an HD revolution.

I recently watched Aeon Flux - a guilty pleasure of mine - and thought that the transfer was absolute crap. I wonder if there will ever be an incentive for the studio to revisit such a lesser catalog title with a more impressive transfer.

And I agree with your sentiment...Silent Hill is a killer movie! However, I'm sure that the bean counters consider that ship to have already sailed.

I would like to see "Weeds Season 1" on two 50 gigabyte discs with Lossless personally. I mean I need "Little Boxes" by that woman in full master quality so I can hear her voice as they heard her in the studio singing.
Season 2 I think only has the different people singing "Little Boxes".

You can't really get better than the source. I'm lead to believe the first season was low budget. The cameras just not being the greatest.

Lossless is also extreme overkill for a series like this.

The last episode of Season 2 features the woman singing. Or was it Season 3?

Silent Hill wasn't nearly as good as it could have been, but i would certainly like to see the rumored "special edition" that has been talked about in the past. In the making-of on the domestic DVD, there are more monster scenes... and this movie could have used more of that sort of thing.

Dunno if they are gonna re-release it or not. I had the HD DVD import for a while and it was an excellent transfer.

The film itself is worth a watch but thats about it. It does drag at times.
