I've had a few arrivals lately.

Night of the Creeps - As good as I remember it and the BD looks incredible. One of the very best HD transfers I've seen yet.

Children of the Corn - Managed to get the region-free BD from Starz before it went OOP. I have a soft spot for the film and the BD looks great. Well worth adding to the collection.

My Bloody Valentine - Had to have the original on BD and Lionsgate do a top rate job with the transfer. Even the added footage looks way better than it did on DVD.

The Fly - Cronenberg's film is a textbook example of how to do a remake. Forgotten just how good Goldblum is, shame we don't see him in films much these days. Cracking HD transfer that really breathes new life into the movie.

Face/Off - Discovered it was still the old BBFC cut version, which sucks. And the transfer on this BD seems a bit sub-par to me. It lacks that HD bite that sets it apart from DVD. I have a sneaky suspicion that it's more akin to an upscaled and uncompressed SD transfer rather than a true HD makeover. It seemed to lack detail and didn't seem as clean and sharp as an HD transfer should be.

The Green Mile - I'm a huge fan of Stephen King so it's no surprise I picked this up. Darabont directs with a sure hand and the cast are extremely good, even Hanks, whom I usually dislike. Terrfic HD transfer from Warners.

Mr Postman popped my BD of The Exorcist through the door this afternoon, haven't opened it yet but from what I've read, it's made a good transition to HD.
When I got my Blu Ray player I told the missus I would only buy the films I don't already own on DVD, so far that amounts to one, Hobo With A Shotgun ha ha.

How much did you pay for this and where from? I'm dying to order this but don't really want to get stung for a massive delivery charge

Nice haul!
I love the NOTC blu! Sony did a brill job on this disc.
I still need to get Fly and MBV original on blu even though I own both on DVD. however I only own the barebones fly disc.
