Just FYI, Universal has announced that they will be releasing "Flash Gordon" on Blu-Ray in the US on June 15th.

Is there really nothing better to release?

The movie is terrible, just the fact that Queen music is used there saves it

Considering it's Universal, we could expect the soundtrack to be in DTS-HD Master Audio (assuming it's 5.1) :-)

The soundtrack IS a DTS-HD Master Audio. I just hope it sounds much better than any other release which has always been quite tinny to my ears, and I hope they've done a decent surround mix on it, though I expect it will be no better than the Highlander BD soundmix which was a letdown.

Did Highlander ever see a BD release anywhere? I know it was scheduled for a French release, but dunno if that went through or not.

It's a shame that we have to revert to out dated 80s movies on BD to hear Queen in HD 5.1 audio.
The only reason why I would buy them and just play them with the TV turned off!

Just release the albums on BD audio disk and have dome with it!

I DID suggest that to Justin Shirley-Smith as far back as late 2005, actually! He said they could consider looking into that (at the time), but 5 years pass on, and no word since if they've taken serious consideration into that...
