Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction coming to BluRay
Unbelievable, a news article not about Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie Django Unchained! I know you were expecting an update on the flick from the news source you trust. The thing is, there is not terribly much hard facts to report and we are not much into copying the rumors and tidbits that have been around the web already. For that, we have Twitter and Facebook and you’re totally invited to like our Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter. Having said that, one of the many other things Tarantino fans are waiting for (aside from Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair to come out on DVD) is to have all the QT movies on home video, and the high def nerds want it on BluRay. There are currently no BluRay releases of Quentin’s Jackie Brown and his Pulp Fiction, so it is cool to hear that Lionsgate (who has the Miramax catalog titles now, or something, can someone refresh my memory what happened there?) will be releasing the two movies this coming October.
According to Blu-ray.com and Highdefdigest.com the two discs with yet unknown specifications will arrive on October 4th. It was hinted at that Jackie Brown might get a prior run exclusively for Wal Mart, but we know that Amazon‘s tentacles are capable enough and the title will then soon be available rather widely. The previous special edition DVD releases (see: Pulp here, Jackie here) included quite a bit of special features, so it might be safe to assume that the extras might be carried over. There is not much new material to include (not many documentaries on the films that they could dig up) and since QT does not do audio commentaries on his own movies (and is busy prepping Django Unchained), it is safe to assume that they will not include an audio commentary either. I just hope they will otherwise be decent as opposed to the horrible as hell release of From Dusk Till Dawn that you might know is available.
This is of course US-specific news as both Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction are already available in other countries to some extent.

Please post below if you have more information or if you think this is bollocks because BluRay is for babies, or whatever. That’s it for now, we’ll be back shortly with Django Unchained news.
