As I mentioned the other day, Warner Bros is releasing The Shawshank Redemption on Blu-ray next month. A couple of days ago they sent me a sample. As it happens, it’s the US version in the US packaging, which we will not be getting. I expect that the disc will be identical.
This evening I added it to my DVD/Blu-ray database. Two of the fields therein are the IMDB ‘User Rating’, and the date on which I recorded it. User Rating was 9.2 as of this evening. Then I noticed my last entry for this movie (the DVD version) dated 4 May 2005. Back then the rating was 9.0, so it seems to have been voted up higher over the last 3.5 years.
I also got ahold of Dark City today, now also on Blu-ray. This has creeped from 7.6 to 7.8 pm IMDB over the last three years. Interesting to see fine movies achieving greater appreciation over time.
