This isn't really news as much as it is an official statement for something that's been happening for months.

With Weinstein having a good relationship with Blockbuster as well as "Hard Boiled" coming to blu-ray, I foresee an announcement soon about them going neutral. Here comes "Grindhouse!"

Weinstein is not planning on going neutral, and the HD DVD version of Grindhouse will release months later than the dvd version, if at all.

although I agree with you, these things you never know. Nobody as of yesturday would have guessed BlockBuster going Blu-ray only in stores ya know? The reason I think Weinstein could go neutral before others too is because of its size and financial woes. They have not had a hit sense they broke off of Disney and any extra cash flow is needed or would be nice for them.

so like i said, i doubt they will be going anytime soon but I could see them doing this earlier then some of the other guys

You are right, while the Blockbuster thing won't affect me, since I only purchase, it is great for Blu-ray.

Here in the uk they are not only a rental company they stock blu rays for sale.
And to be honest the price isnt to bad mainly about 1 more than online retailers.So if your in a hurry for a movie you can pick it up and forgo the waiting for postage.
Selection is not bad either ,i have 2 bb shops near buy and selections are good.
