Indy feeling Blu?

There's been a metric shitload of recent moving and shaking in regards to the whole HD "format war", which already seems to have Blu-Ray being declared the victor.

If there's any validity to this rumor, it would be just one more whip-crack to the ass of HD-DVD. From the CES show currently taking place in Vegas comes word that INDIANA JONES AND TEH THING WITH TEH KOOKY SKULLS is already being prepped for a Blu release. You can make your own black-and-Blu jokes about Ford's age -- I actually, almost inconceivably, am starting to look forward to the movie, despite the presence of Shia's questionable facial scruff.

Spielberg's flicks aren't covered by Paramount's (apparently no longer) exclusive HD-DVD deal, so the flick will reportedly be hitting the seemingly preferred format later in the year... probably just in time for Christmas. The disc will be certified for THX (wasn't Spielberg a major DTS audio guy?), along with Lionsgate's Blu release for TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY. Looks like that PS3 was a worthwhile purchase after all (for something other than UNCHARTED, anyway).
Extra Tidbit: LucasArts is working on a next-gen INDIANA JONES videogame, which could potentially be conveniently finished in time for the movie's Blu release.

THX Treatment?

THX is nothing more than a sound certification. Any format can be "THX Certified" whether its digital (DTS, SDDS) or analog.

And the fact that so many of you are already anticipating this pile's HD release means it served it's purpose. To get all of your money. It's going to suck...hard. But it will certainly break bank.

Spielberg IS STILL a huge DTS supporter. However, since Indy movies are Lucasfilm babies, they get the THX treatment. It's the same deal with the current Indy DVDs.

Lol

Indy holding a PS3 Blu-ray remote, great advertisment for Sony. I'm glad they are coming out on Blu-ray, I can't finally wait to get Transformers and Batman Begins Blu-ray Disc.

don't know if this is cool yet or not...

... since I haven't seen the fourth Indy movie yet.
Could be it will be at least as much fun as the third installment, but chances are the series had its' go and now it will falter away into a less-than-stellar conclusion.

That's OK, though, I'm glad that Blu-Ray is pretty much the victor in the new video format now. I like my PS3 more THIS week than I did last week. :)
