    I'm at the point where I'd like some of my favorite past TV shows to get a DVD release...most notably, The Equalizer. I'm also in the "original Star Wars" camp. I'd also like to see some of these "old" catalog releases re-done in anamorphic, with actual care taken in the transfer quality and cleanup of dirt/specks. I still have to pick up a few that have been released, like Rambo 1 & 2...but otherwise, I've pretty much got what I want. These days I mostly buy new releases.

    A few films I'd like to see that haven't turned up yet

    Battle of the Bulge (Henry Fonda, Telly Savalas)
    The Spirit of St. Luois (James Stewart)
    Raid on Entebbe (Charles Bronson)
    California Dolls (Peter Falk)
    Baltimore Bullett (James Coburn)
    Almost an Angel (Paul Hogan)
    Love at First Bite (George Hamilton)

    There are others but I'm risking getting comments as to my lousy taste as it is :b. Suffice to say in mitigation about my taste these wouldn't have been my first choices but then those are out and these are some of the ones I'm still hoping for.
