USA uses NTSC, which is 24 frames per second. Germany and UK use PAL which is 25 fps. Over the length of an average movie the PAL version will "lose" about 5 minutes, but all the frames are still there.



NTSC is 29.97 frames per second (aka 60i for 60 interlaced 'fields' per second), but on DVD and BLU RAY, NTSC DVD players (and PAL/SECAM) all can play 24 frames per second film (aka 24P, which runs at 23.976 frames per second)

That is ridiculous. All distributors have the possibility of doing limited runs, even if that "limit" is 10,000. The rental houses alone could cover that and they'd still be in profit.

Distributors are morons so far removed from their own customers.

Out in canada in a blu ray /DVD combo pack on 8/16. Can't tell if it has any special features.

I suppose there's a pretty decent chance that this is the same thing as the UK Blu-ray, which famously did not have a lick of special features.

I know that this has been set in stone for awhile now, but we need to do something about this. Brick is one of my favorite movies of all time, and that fact that its not on bluray yet is absolutely ridiculous. Any chance we could start a petition to show them that there is in fact a market for this. You would think that because Looper did so well (by the way, amazing job Rian. Best movie of the year!!!!) that the company would say, "hey, people like his movies, maybe we should put Brick on bluray as well." I really want, no, NEED this on bluray, and i would love a US release. What do you guys think? Is a petition worth a shot, or a total waste of time?

A petition never hurts anyone. And I had been wondering myself if the success of Looper might mean a change of mind about a Brick blu-ray.

If you make a petition, I'd sure sign it. I don't have a blu-ray machine, but I have friends that do, and I like to imagine a US blu-ray might contains some of those fabled special features from the UK DVD :)

I finally started a petition. Don't have alot of signatures yet, so if you could sign it, that would be great

Does anyone have the Alliance BLU? I have the UK DVD but I wondered if the BLU is worth getting and if the transfer is worth it.
