    At Toby’s alter-ego Fifties Westerns there has
    been much discussion about DVD vs Blu Ray.
    Folks over there have also been concerned about
    possibly “quality” issues over Mill Creek’s forthcoming
    Randolph Scott set.

    I’ve only purchased one Mill Creek item a Sci Fi
    set. While the black & white films looked good the two
    Toho widescreen color films suffered in quality.

    I like many others would much rather Mill Creek released
    THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN on Blu Ray a very much
    sought after item.

    As I mentioned at Fifties Westerns Horror fanatics have
    far more embraced the Blu Ray medium as opposed to
    Western fans. There does not seem to be ANY Horror
    Sci-Fi film that Kino Lorber cannot fail to clean up on
    in High Def.

    After much agonizing I decided to purchase Shout Factory’s
    recent Vincent Price Collection Volume 3 on Blu Ray.
    The reason being is that I don’t have any of the films,plus the
    fact the multiple extras sound very appealing.
    Furthermore reviews have been very positive and I’m more
    than thrilled to have Corman’s TOWER OF LONDON in High Def….
    which looks stunning by all accounts.
    To add to all this Amazon USA had the set at a much reduced price
    and I was more than encouraged to see the out of print Volume
    One is now commanding $250 and that’s for a not very good
    condition second hand item. This makes my mere $45 seem a
    sound investment.

    What I’m trying to say is I would rather Mill Creek gave us
    Blu Ray editions of much sought after titles rather than these
    “bargain basement” packs.
