Along with no back catalogue 4k disks, or new 4k disks, disney is trolling consumers.Can't see the point of it myself. Why take a world-recognised emblem and effectively destroy it? Makes no sense to me.
This is very true - Aliens always looked pretty terrible but the Blu-ray was something of a revelation, as was the reconstruction of the underrated Alien 3 (not as good looking, but amazing given how doomed the production seemed to be), so if that’s all we get for them it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Alien Resurrection I would happily never watch again. But not even a Blu-ray, let alone a 4K disc of The Abyss is a crying shame. I cannot understand why James Cameron seems so unbothered by it.We have a superlative release of Alien. All we need is a 4K release of Aliens but if that doesnt happen (dont expect it any time in the next year or 5), we have stellar BR of Aliens to fall back on.
Well Walt Disney was a known racist and fascist and was rumoured to also be a paedo, so I can see why they've always had image issues.They've always had image problems at Disney. They always tried to distance the 'grown up' movies with the Buena Vista label and its sub brands, and now this mess.
If they're going to kill 20th Century Fox off because of politics, then they shouldn't do it in such a half-assed way. They should just rebrand everything Disney, and keep 20th Century and Searchlight (ugh!) for feature films.
It's still a jumbled mess.
