After The JAMES BOND and HITCHCOCK and MONSTERS sets, plus INDIANA JONES and other Spielberg releases, what can studios do to equal or surpass such releases? I am thinking Universal could could do a spectacular SCI-FI BOX set which would include THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN THIS ISLAND EARTH TARANTULA DR. CYCLOPS IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE (3-D) REVEAGE OF THE CREATURE (3-D) THE MONOLITH MONSTERS and perhaps a couple of others, all in their proper aspect ratios. And, as a separate title, let's not forget a domestic release of THE UNINVITED (1944). And, what the hell happened to your intended Blu release of THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN? But there's more.... BALTO, all of your Anthony Mann westerns, ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS, BOWFINGER, COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER, COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT, DESTRY RIDES AGAIN, FAHRENHEIT 451, GHOST STORY, THE HEIRESS, HOLD THAT GHOST, ICEMAN, KING OF THE HILL, MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS, MASK, MATINEE, MIDNIGHT RUN, MONTY PYTHON'S THE MEANING OF LIFE, MUNICH, NIGHTHAWKS, PLAY MISTY FOR ME, SCHINDLER'S LIST, SILENT RUNNING, SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE, SPARTACUS (either give this to Criterion or do it right yourselves), SWASHBUCKER, THE THRILL OF IT ALL, THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES, TOUCH OF EVIL, VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED ( Carpenter), WINCHESTER '73. Sony could give us THE MAD MAGICIAN and its two Three Stooges shorts in 3-D. OLIVER! would be great, too. How about personally releasing, or at least licensing to Twilight Time, the remaining Columbia Harryhausen titles: THREE WORLDS OF GULLIVER, THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD, SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER, FIRST MEN IN THE MOON? And what on earth is the delay on TOOTSIE, THE CHINA SYNDROME, CITY OF LOST CHILDREN, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, OBSESSION, A STUDY IN TERROR, TAMING OF THE SHREW? A huge missing-in-action series on Blu is the Corman/Poe Midnight Movie series. This would seem to be a no-brainer: FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, PIT AND THE PENDULUM, MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, TOMB OF LIGEIA, THE RAVEN, A COMEDY OF TERRORS, PREMATURE BURIEL... Other Midnight Movies are also desirable for Blu-ray, including BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW and BURN, WITCH, BURN. How about both versions of CURSE OF THE DEMON (aka NIGHT OF TE DEMON?) Also, can we speed up the output of Woody Allen films in your holdings? At two per year, we'll all be old or dead before the remaining titles are released. As to the general superior films from the UA catalog that remain unreleased to Blu: DOGS OF WAR, EXODUS, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED TO ME..., THE GREAT ESCAPE, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, JACK THE GIANT KILLER (as a tie-in to the forthcoming remake), JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG, JUGGERNAUT, A KISS BEFORE DYING, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, LENNY, MARTY, THE MIRACLE WORKER, MOBY DICK, OF MICE AND MEN, ONE TWO THREE, ON THE BEACH, RETURN OF A MAN CALLED HORSE, ROB ROY, THIEVES LIKE US, TOM JONES, TOPKAPI, THE TRAIN, WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT, WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION, WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT. Paramount could personally give us, or license out (even excluding the region 2 releases already announced or available) The ADDAMS FAMILY films, ATLANIC CITY, BAD NEWS BEARS, CATCH-22, A CIVIL ACTION, THE COURT JESTER, DON'T LOOK NOW, DRAGONSLAYER, THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE, HATARI, HONDO (3-D), HUD, THE LAST TRAIN ON GUN HILL, MARATHON MAN, THE NAKED JUNGLE, THE NAKED PREY, NASHVILLE, NEVADA SMITH, NORTH DALLAS FORTY, NO WAY TO TREAT A LADY, THE NUN'S STORY, NASVILLE, ORDINARY PEOPLE, PAPA'S DELICATE CONDITION, PAPER MOON, PARALLAX VIEW, A PLACE IN THE SUN, PLAY IT AGAIN SAM, PRETTY BABY, RAGTIME, REDS, ROMAN HOLIDAY, ROMEO AND JULIET (1968), SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISHER, SECONDS, SHANE, A SIMPLE PLAN, SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, STALAG 17, TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, TESTAMENT, WAR OF THE WORLDS, WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, Jerry Lewis titles....etc. Damn, Paramount, you people are in serious arrears here! Criterion could give us... well, just keep up the good work, folks! But a few suggestions: Upgrades for THE VIRGIN SPRING, FIEND WITHOUT A FACE (Hey, if you're bothering with THE BLOB...), BICYCLE THIEVES, FORBIDDEN GAMES, SPIRIT OF THE BEEHVIVE, THE 49TH PARALLEL, ACE IN THE HOLE, BIG DEAL ON MADONNA STREET, CARNIVAL OF SOULS, THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER, all remaining Bunuel and Kurosawa titles, EYES WITHOUT A FACE, FIRES ON THE PLAIN...... well, it seems you are on the slow but sure path toward upgrading your DVD's, so... Here are some suggestions for titles you haven't touched yet: A Karel Zeman set; JOURNEY OF HOPE, THE OFFICIAL STORY, ALLEGRO NON TROPPO, BEAU PERE, BURNT BY THE SUN, EUROPA EUROPA, GARDEN OF THE FINZI-CONTINIS, GET OUT YOUR HANDERCHIEFS, HOUR OF THE WOLF, JEAN DE FLORETTE/MANON DE SOURCE, JU DOU, KING OF MASKS, MAD ADVENTURES OF RABBI JACOB, MEPHISTO, NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING STARS, NOWHERE IN AFRICA, PIXOTE, PONETTE, SALAAM BOMABY!, SEVEN BEAUTIES, SILENT STAR (aka FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS), STALINGRAD, ILYA MUROMETS (aka SWORD AND THE DRAGON), TREE OF THE WOODEN CLOGS, WAR AND PEACE (Russian) and all of the Francois Truffaut titles held hostage by MGM/SONY. And, Disney... Where to begin? Catalog titles are finally starting to emerge on Blu-ray, but there are tons of worthy titles yet to be announced (and I'm not even including the animated stuff, which I assume will come our way fairly soon): 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, THE BLACK HOLE, COUNTRY, DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE, FIGHTING PRINCE OF DONEGAL, THE GNOME MOBILE, GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE, HONEY, I... ( 2 titles), INCREDIBLE JOURNEY, IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS, JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN, LITTLEST HORSE THIEVES, NEVER CRY WOLF, OLD YELLER, PARENT TRAP, RETURN TO OZ, SHIPWRECKED, SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COME, SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON, TEX, THAT DARN CAT, THOSE CALLOWAYS, TREASURE ISLAND, WHITE FANG...etc. Also, subsidiary label titles such as QUIZ SHOW would be welcome. Don't get me started on the HAMMER films, which are being spit out regularly in the UK, but the majors here in the States are so far avoiding them...Hello, Warner Bros, Sony. Warner Bros. has so many holdings now that the want list would be just about endless. THE HAUNTING, BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS (both would be great for Halloween '13), THE BAND WAGON, THE CAMERAMAN (Buster Keaton), BIG HAND FOR A LITTLE LADY, CHEYENNE AUTUMN, FINIAN'S RAINBOW, THE GREAT RACE, HOOPER, INNOCENT BLOOD, THE KILLING FIELDS, LADYHAWKE, MAD MAX 3: BEYOND THUNDERDOME, McCABE AND MRS. MILLER, MOSQUITO COAST, MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM (color-corrected), THE PLEDGE, RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY, THE SECRET GARDEN (1993), SEVEN DAYS IN MAY, THEM!, TIGHTROPE, FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, KISS ME KATE (3-D), OPERATION CROSSBOW, PENNIES FROM HEAVEN, QUEEN CHRISTINA, RYAN'S DAUGHTER, SCARAMOUCHE, 7 FACES OF DR. LAO, TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT, VALLEY OF GWANGI, WAIT UNTIL DARK, WATERSHIP DOWN, WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH, THE WITCHES (Roeg), TIME MACHINE (1960), VICTOR/VICTORIA, and upgrades to Blu from your Archive series would be great for DARK OF THE SUN and SINBAD THE SAILOR. Just a partial list, of course, and (assuming these studios read HTF posts) one that reflects my personal tastes. Your wish lists?
