HOO- "F"ing- RAY!!!!!!!!
I would hope for Taylor too, although didn't see her mentioned.
Well, it seems we can't have Raintree County, so some others I would be most interested in are the Sandpiper, Reflections in a Golden Eye, National Velvet, Little Women, Ivanhoe, Butterfield 8, etc..
I'm hoping for Suddenly, Last Summer, though that seems a remote possibility from WB, given it was released on DVD as a Columbia Classic; still Amazon is listing it as an instant video in HD, so it looks like an HD master has been done. I can dream....
I'd love all of those films from WHV or WAC, of course, but a properly restored National Velvet would be wonderful and is at the top of my list. The DVD that WB has out now is one of the original MGM discs from the very early days of DVD...1997, I believe. It doesn't look so hot, but I was told about 10 years ago on one of the chats here that it's a big seller for WB.
I saw the film screened at the TCM Film Festival in April. It was a last minute addition to the schedule as a tribute to Mickey Rooney. They didn't have much time to get a good print, so it didn't look very good, but it was great to see it on the big screen nonetheless. Margaret O'Brien came to say a few words about Mickey after the screening. She was escorted by none other than Joey Luft, Judy Garland's son!
I've bought so much stuff on Blu-ray this year I can frankly stand a break; at least my wallet can. I'll take RAH's advice and start saving now.
I see Minnelli and Astaire. Hopefully some of the great MGM musicals that have yet to be released. Could it be The Band Wagon? Fingers crossed.
Warner doesn't have access to Columbia titles. I'd love Suddenly, Last Summer as well, though...maybe we'll see it from Sony, or Twilight Time or Criterion? I'd love to see Criterion get their hands on an Elizabeth Taylor film!Great to see all the love for Elizabeth in this thread. She was #4 on Forbes' top earning dead celebrity of 2013, two spots ahead of Marilyn. She still sells, WB! Hopefully we'll see some of her films in 2015.
Well since people are putting out their wish lists -here I go again-- THE GREAT RACE---RYANS DAUGHTER---LOCAL HERO---GOODBYE MR CHIPS---PENNIES FROM HEAVEN---THE GOODBYE GIRL---HEAVEN AND EARTH--ALICE DOESNT LIVE HERE ANYMORE---PACIFIC HEIGHTS---MICHAEL COLLINS---FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD---SHOOT THE MOON.
I've no doubt that THE BAND WAGON is at the top of the list of MGM musicals coming to BluRay. It's the highest profile Freed unit title that's still MIA and with the names Minnelli and Astaire attached to it, it's a shoo-in!
As far as Mr. Astaire's catalog at Warner, I'd love to not only see "The Bandwagon", but all of his musicals with Ginger Rogers at both RKO & MGM come out...both are LONG overdue...
Without too much speculating lets hope those Hammer Horror are from their box set..
I hope we get THEM!, The Thing from Another World , The Beast From 20000 Fathoms...more titles from their Noir and Gangster sets, along with some titles from their Signature series collections.. High Sierra, and hopefully they can upgrade some of the Warner Archive DVDs to Archive blu rays..
Give me the Thin Man series on blu ray !!
All I know is I have been incredibly pleased with the blu-rays I have gotten from WA. I'd be happy if their output continues, let alone increases.
WB usually also includes all the older extras, which is great for the collectors.
There had better be some more best picture nominees!
For a while I have been rather critical of Warner but I have to say that currently the quantity of their output may have decreased but the good thing about this is that Warner now usally hits a homerun with every release that is new to Blu-ray. The only other studio that does release similar quality is Sony but their catalog releases are down to a trifle and most of their catalog releases are now seemingly handled by TT.So whatever the titles are I am happy to hear they'll be coming. Unfortunately I suspect there will not be too many bigger profile and/or roadshow titles as those will usually be properly released and not "just" through Warner Archives.
HAMMER ! HAMMER ! HAMMER ! please, please, please, lol. Any of WB's 1950's horror and sci-fi. Also, I would love to see "The Thin Man" series hit blu-ray !
David Steigman is that you...again?
Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Magnificent Ambersons, more noir and western, less musicals plz!
Great news, & with Warner's track record you know they will all look as good as they possibly can do. No more complaints from me, honest guv'nor!
