CinemaTech laments the lack of selection:
One reason that you can’t find movies like the James Bond series, ‘The Godfather,’ and ‘The Lion King’ is likely that they haven’t yet been released on Blu-ray disc yet, and the studios are sure they’ll make more money on selling high-def discs than they can with $9.99 iTunes downloads.
My favorite quote in the piece is from Jim Flynn, who runs the download sites EZTakes and iArthouse: “The pirates in general have a download exclusive,” he says. “These movies are available as downloads — just not legal ones.”
Nevermind the downloads. Why aren’t the studios working overtime to bring out cheap, non-special editions of their library titles (with expensive, extras-packed versions to follow)?
