    I would add PARENTHOOD for OAR release - my favorite of all Ron Howard's films. Insightful and witty. Treat it well.

    I'm looking at that list and you know what comes to mind? Universal made a lot of crappy movies in the late 80's and early 90's!
    I'd personally like to ask Universal to dig into their catalog and release a number of their films from the 1930's, 40's, 50's and 60's. That would be nice!

    Eugene,

    Universal already did a stunning special edition of Jaws 2 with a documentary from Laurent Bouzereau!

    And JAWS 3-D should include the widescreen 3-D version (field Sequential). This was released in Japan in 1990! Kill the bootleggers off and put out a proper release. No one wants to see this film flat....

    I want all of the titles that I asked them for in my post to Universal many months ago, and here they are again:
    PRINCE OF DARKNESS SE (Even though I now have the R2)
    THEY LIVE SE (Even though I now have the R2 of this too)
    VIDEODROME SE
    HALLOWEEN 3: SEASON OF THE WITCH SE
    THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW SE
    DUEL SE
    THE SENTINEL SE
    PHANTASM 2 SE
    PHANTASM 3 SE
    THE FUNHOUSE SE
    Give the above classics the great DVD treatment they deserve, and I'll be one happy sucker!

    I'd also love to see a SE of Parenthood. Another vote for Fletch Lives.

    I'd also love to have a DVD copy of The Chipmunk Adventure, in OAR, of course!

    Wow, there are a lot of crappy movies on that list, no thanks to Universal. Are you telling me you actually want to buy Smokey and the Bandit: Part III? That was one of the worst movies ever made!
