Eyes Wide Shut
I'm hoping that when Eyes Wide Shut
hits HD DVD they'll have an "unrated" version without the super-fake CGI "actors" in the way of the action
I've staked my claim in HD DVD! Gods be damned!
I also own the Kubrick box set...but it's a shame they didn't put Paths of Glory
and The Killing
in there. Sure, they're his "lesser" works but they still need to be grouped with the rest....Hell, I'd throw Spartacus
in there too.
I can't wait to see Barry Lyndon
in HD! I hope they come out soon...
and 2001: A Space Odyssey
came out on the same day (this past Tuesday). Eyes Wide Shut
is the un-edited version. So far I don't know of any plans to release Barry Lyndon
I must mention that the blu-ray disc of A Clockwork Orange
is all on one disc while the HD-DVD is on two, so obviously blu-ray has a higher capacity. I really don't care which format wins, although blu-ray has prettier looking cases.
Oh, if anyone wants in-depth reviews/comparisons of all the new Kubrick DVDs I'd go to DVD Beaver:http://www.dvdbeaver.com/
They haven't covered the Full Metal Jacket
