blu ray 10 Movies That Need a Blu ray Release

As movies continue to be transferred to Blu-ray, we’d like to suggest a few films that deserve everything that awesome platform has to offer. So here’s a top 10 list of movies that would look great, sound great, and benefit from the extensive special features that Blu-ray discs provide. Keep in mind that this list is not in the order of how great each movie is, but rather how much each film would benefit from a Blu-ray upgrade.

Of course, not everyone owns a Blu-ray player, but that’s changing quickly – if you love movies you really should find a way to get one. There is nothing on the home video market that beats its picture and sound quality, along with some exceptional bonus features not found on DVD (you do need at least a 42″ TV to really start seeing the difference, though). As of January of last year, Blu-ray had found its way into over 10.7 million homes since its June 2006 launch. And according to some studies, it will have a 74% market share by 2017.

Considering those numbers, it seems like a good time for this top 10 list. The following includes only films with no announced release date for a Blu-ray version, so for example you won’t see the Alien franchise listed as it is set to be released later this year.


#10: Pulp Fiction

Thanks to Justin Reed for this awesome art.

Many would argue this is Quentin Tarantino’s finest work. With Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction as the only two remaining Tarantino films waiting to make the transfer, it’s safe to say this belongs on the list. The eccentric director is typically shy about his special features, but Inglourious Basterds came with a plethora of behind-the-scenes material and it’s hard to imagine more of the same isn’t waiting to be seen with Pulp Fiction.

The colors of the film have always been vibrant. Certain scenes, like the old-school diner, would look excellent with an upgrade. But frankly, the reason it belongs is for the quality of the story itself and the historic value of a truly beloved film.

  19. there is a problem with them putting star wars on blue ray… George Lucas will just mess with them again and we'll get more pointless CGI or something we love taken away, do we really want that?

  20. What about Lion King?

  21. Great list, and can we add Sneakers to that? Not that its visual really would benefit that great from BluRay, but it just doesn't get enough credit as a timeless geek film.

  22. Hey, what about True Lies??? I would love to have True Lies on blu ray!

  23. pride and prejudice- keira knightly

  24. Yes to all of your choices, and perhaps we can get a petition going to get the studios to get off their arses and move on this ASAP.

  25. Both Star Wars Trilogies are available on blu-ray. If you want them both as one package that's a different story, but you can obtain all six films on blu-ray reguardless.

  26. Pulp Fiction may not be out in the US, but it's been out in region B since November last year.

  27. I hate the Greedo shoots first scene, the inserted animals & people all over mos Eisley, the Super Duper Death Star explosions, the adding of additional Troopers into scenes, etc. Just give me the originals I saw with a decent transfer. That's all I want. I am sure they will hold up.

  28. American domestic releases for

    Moulin Rouge
    Disney's Song of the South

  29. Hm, what about True Lies??? Did someone already say that? I would love to see True Lies on Bluray. That scene of him swimming under the flames would look awesome in hi-def, lol. I remember after that movie came out, for the next 5 years, every action film and tv series HAD to have a scene of them swimming under fire, lol.
