bac.thumbnail.gifIt seems that there is a wave of European distributors starting to release Blu-ray titles.

Caramel-Blu-Ray.thumbnail.jpgWe see that BAC Films in France is joining the Blu-ray team with the release of Caramel on the Blu-ray Disc format

The disc will be released on March 13. There does not appear to be an HD DVD planned at this time.

    Be sure to check out the BAC website! They are advertising a new 3D Animated movie that looks very good. nice music and visuals.

    So… is there a site that keeps track of the number of studios each side “signs up” with, not just the % that pretty much covers the big guys. ;)

    I whish StudioCanal would really go all Blu since they hold a lot of titles around here.

    Unfortunately those f-ckers are always going for the cheapest solutions, cheap packaging, DVD’s with subtitles that can not be turned off, classical US westerns in French only (WTF!) so I guess they’ll clinging on to HD-DVD for as long as they can :-(

    Studio Canal certainly has a lot of interesting content.

    Studio Canal doesn’t always opt for forced subtitle options – check out their most popular release – T2: Judgement Day for proof. The director’s cut version (disc 2) has optional subtitles.

    Yes, it’s not all titles that have forced subtitles and sometimes it’s only if you select English that you are forced to what French subtitles which on top of everything are very poorly positioned so they really disturb you. That sucks.
