A few moons ago, I wrote an article entitled “Where have all the Blu-rays gone? – But why the future is still bright!”. Essentially, the gist of the article was that even though at the time there was a distinct lack of new release Blu-ray titles, and the highlight of the upcoming release schedule was “Alvin and the Chipmunks”, it gave promise that the future was full of hope - bright, starry eyed hope.
I am sorry to say that at the time I couldn’t exactly say why or how I knew this, nor could I be specific about many of the highly desired titles. You see, I’ve been writing for many years now, and have acquired many contacts from all facets of the DVD industry, from production to manufacturers, product reps and marketing. From time to time they chime in with bits and pieces of information which create a general ‘off the record’ picture of the industry. Whilst I would love to share the news, and revel in the popularity of making TweakTown hitting Google news for a few days, I doubt many of my contacts would ever speak to me again, so I hope you understand.
