Because it's generally important Leone news.

Actually the reason is, we (on this board) were anticipating the SE releases of AFOD, FAFDM, & DYS (under is alternate title of "A Fistful of Dynamite") in a box set before Sony bought the MGM/UA films, and when the release was postponed we suspected that the reason was that Sonny may try and release these on Blue Ray and it looks like that suspision may have come to fruition.  8)

Also, there are some of us who might spring for Blu-ray if SL's films come available in that format. It'll probably take more than one title, though.....

For you HD lovers don't fear (as long as you haven't actually bought an HD Player  ;) ) WB are supposed to be releasing news of a player that can play both formats. But I suspect, like Warners, MGM, Sony, Disney and Fox are doing at the present, the release in R1 will be of The Blue-ray SE and the DVD SE. Sony would be absolutely stupid to not release it on DVD in which a major section of the home video buying public are currently located.

I have a Blu-ray player (Playstation 3), I can't wait for this release.  It's supposed to be out in June.  Right now I'm enjoying Unforgiven and The Searchers on Blu-ray.   O0

Arn't the colors in the HD Release of The Searchers the same as in the SD release which means they are quite far off from the original color choice that was in the prints from the time of it's release?

Funny thing is I have the latex special edition DVD version (The big box), but I never got around to watching it and bought the Blu-ray.  Although I also have the older DVD release (Snapper Case) which has a redish tone to the whole film (specially the outside shots) which the Blu-ray doesn't.  I don't know how the original film was intended but the Blu-ray is absolutely natural and beatiful looking.  If I get a chance I'll compare it to the special edition DVD.

Apparently, and as I wasn't fortunate enough to see the film on it's first release due to the fact I hadn't been born, the colors of the sky are not as 'Blue' and vibrant as the original prints were.
