Two very different fantasies will be appearing on Blu-ray in Australia on 2 December. The Green Mile was director Frank Darabont’s third Stephen King adaptation and if not quite up the level of The Shawshank Redemption (already out on Blu-ray), that’s only because Shawshank was do damned superb. After all, it is usually jostling with The Godfather and The Godfather Part 2 for the number one position on the IMDB Top 250 list (it is, as I write, Number 1). (Darabont followed up most recently with his fourth King adaptation, a horror movie featuring what must be a unique basis for the horror: The Mist.)
As for Gone with the Wind, little needs to be said. There’s a DVD version of this coming out at the same time, with the movie split across two discs (necessary to allow decent video quality given the near to four hour length of the movie). I’m seeking to find out about the Blu-ray details now.
