    Similar threads may exist, I didn't feel like searching.


    The one film you want most on Blu-Ray. Your 'Holy Grail' so to speak.

    Tough call for me. Although I'd love to see 'Housekeeping' released(with many special features) I guess I'd rather have NOSFERATU from 1979, done perfectly with tons of new features.



    Remember, the sky's the limit.

    Great choice, Steve.


    I listed a bunch of choices in another thread, but since this is a 'Grail' thread the one title I will mention is


    Once Upon A Time In The West.

    There are films I like more and would rather have, but because they'll never be released in my lifetime, I'd have to say the original, non-special edition versions of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back.


    And The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension.

    since the original versions of star wars will never happen. I'll say:


    Empire of the Sun

    Well considering "The Magnificent Ambersons" as well as a silent boxset of Greed, The Big Parade, The Crowd and The Wind have all been due from Warners for years now, it would go a long way to mending ties if they did a blu-ray release of those films.


    PS: I'm gonna be pissed if any of those titles get dumped on DVD via the Warner Archive...

    Roots in its original eight part version with the openings restored, including: George Hamilton riding through the countryside singing and Chicken George returning from England through the countryside on a horse with beautiful shots. I can't believe WB says they aren't aware of any missing footage! Go to the Museum of TV in New York. It's there to view daily!

    Oh wow, there are a lot -- but I'll keep it to two:

    "Cleopatra" (1963-as complete as possible) and the Robert Gitt/UCLA restoration of "Becky Sharp"

    The Living Daylights

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture ( Robert Wise restored edition )

    Phenomena ( Argento )

    Suspiria ( Argento again - UK soundtrack mixed with a proper restored image that doesn't suffer contrast issues would be nice )

    True Lies

    Pearl Harbor - Directors Cut

    Lawrence of Arabia.


    After being promoted on some early Sony BD releases as 'coming soon' it has all but disappeared. No mention of when it is actually coming, and a few years have already passed. I can only hope the delay means a whiz-bang release when it does finally arrive. Hopefully an 8k scan of 70mm elements ala Baraka, with very high bitrates ala Avatar. That would be something to behold indeed.
