    As we're approaching the end of another year, I just thought I'd share my 12 most-wanted DVD titles for 2005. I've limited these to films that haven't yet appeared on DVD (not counting numerous inferior public-domain releases of One-Eyed Jacks), and I've listed them by owning studio.


    Columbia

    The Go-Between (Losey)

    Fox

    Julia (Zinneman)

    MGM/UA

    Thieves Like Us (Altman)

    Paramount

    Ace In The Hole (Wilder)
    One-Eyed Jacks (Brando)
    If... (Anderson)

    Universal

    Taking Off (Forman)

    Warner

    Fedora (Wilder)
    Lust For Life (Minnelli)
    Point Blank (Boorman)
    Prince Of The City (Lumet)
    Reflections In A Golden Eye (Huston)


    I guess it's possible that some of these titles could be licensed to Criterion, for example 'Julia', 'Thieves Like Us' and 'Taking Off'.

    Although it's starting to become painfully obvious to me that James Cameron is waiting until the tenth anniversary for this but...

    Oklahoma! anamorphic remaster (double ditto)

    Warner
    Libeled Lady (coming 3/1!)

    I think this is still MGM, as it was on laserdisc.

    (Although imagining a Criterion version of this makes me tingle with misplaced anticipation).


    Also, of course...

    The Sopranos Season Five
    The Simpsons Seasons 6, 7, 8?
    Seinfeld Seasons 4+

    Isn't it funny how all the best TV shows begin with 'S'....?!

    Haggai,
    thanks for the heads up on Titanic. [​IMG]

    I only hope it's true this time.

    Steve,
    is the movie Voyager you mentioned the one with Sam Shepard and Julie Delpy? If it is I want that one too.
