Why can't have Kubrick boxset with all the films in it? I just want a Kubrick boxset with the SEs and single disc editions. FRUSTRATED.

It's a shame that the mooted boxset looks to be a little half-hearted, and it's a crime that there's no HD version of Barry Lyndon in the works. But I'll still be all over this set come October, and I'm salivating at the prospect of experiencing these movies in HD.

The Bits has aspect ratios, and hints all is not lost on the Barry Lyndon front...

We've learned that Warner Home Video will finally release those long-awaited Stanley Kubrick special editions on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD on 10/23! These will include 2001: A Space Odyssey (2.20 - 16x9), A Clockwork Orange (1.66 - 16x9), Eyes Wide Shut (1.78 - 16x9 - we believe this is the uncensored version), Full Metal Jacket (1.78 - 16x9 - already available in high-def) and The Shining (1.78 - 16x9)! Each of these will be a 2-disc set (SRP $26.99 each) except for Full Metal Jacket, which is a single-disc deluxe edition. You'll also be able to buy the DVDs in a new Warner Home Video Director's Series: Stanley Kubrick Collection box set (SRP $79.92) that includes the previously released Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures DVD. The high-def versions will all sell for SRP $28.99 each. 2-disc DVD and high-def versions of Lolita and Barry Lyndon are still TBD. We expect the official press release to be made available in the next couple of days.

Won't be weird for me - it's the way I and everyone else who saw it on its initial release viewed it, and it's the only way I want to see it, because that's how Mr. Kubrick and his camera person framed the film for theaters. Since there was basically no home video when the film came out, only TV, Mr. Kubrick protected the film for TV showings, but it wasn't shown that way in the cinemas and given the storyboards and the masking lines on the set monitor, it's the way it should be.

Will be weird for me as was too young to see this at the Cinema when released. Looking forward to it.

"get a life" What sad, sad person would use a tired old cliche like that.

Seeing as how all the extras have been detailed, I'm profoundly, profoundly depressed that the missing minutes from 2001 apparently have been lost to the ages. Similarly, the deleted scenes from A Clockwork Orange. I know Vitali said that he destroyed a lot of SK's trims and such, but... but...

Some of us are too young to EVER of seen it 16x9 - all I have is TV screenings from the late 80's and the two copies of the DVD I own

By using that term I was simply being polite and perhaps I also thought I'd use the linguistic vernacular ["Get a life"] of those for whom the aspect ratios of Kubrick films is of huge importance. I will not be rude or insult any contributors to these fora - but I will offer this. It seems to me that we now have two separate threads devoted to Stanley's aspect ratios - this thread and another, called something like It's What We Would Have Wanted. Is this is the way we discuss or honor a director with one of the most eclectic, controversial and challenging careers in world cinema? Considering the range of issues that Kubrick's films address, to only discuss the bloody aspect ratio seems to me quite pathetic and insulting, a debate that seems to be perperuated by those who know the credits of everything and the value of nothing.

And yet, this is one of the most pedantic and insulting posts imaginable. This is a DVD forum, in case you haven't "bloody" noticed. Hence, people SHOULD be discussing the DVD presentation. If you want to have discourse on the films, fine, but at a DVD forum I don't need to see you or anyone else expounding their opinions - I can get that on the old usenet Kubrick board or any film board where such discussion is for those who want it. I come to a DVD forum to read about and discuss DVDs. Oh, and I hope that this post isn't too "bloody" rude.

Yes we could talk about the meaning of 2001 - but people have been doing that for over 30 years. If there is a new DVD presentation in the offing it makes sense that the technical aspects are of interest to people.

To some people. Some of us who just want info about the film or best release get well ****** having to wade through a massive thread full of anal discourse about AR's, colour timing (waterever that is!) etc etc.
