My Paramount DVD of Hard Rain will be more than sufficient for me, thanks. This particular batch of titles doesn't excite me one bit. Why? Well, for starters, Lionsgate is using old SD masters as source material. Secondly, like Mr. Piper before me suggested there are other movies more deserving of double-dipping than this stuff.

The Phantom is a classic action film? Really Lionsgate?

I'd been waiting for Running Man to make an appearance on Blu-ray. I'll be purchasing that one. One of my favorite Arnold films.

The DVD release of it was interesting, in that it is one of the few DVD's I know of that supports 6.1 surround sound.

I wish Lionsgate would tackle some of the Hammer titles they apparently acquired through Studio Canal.
