    KOYAANISQATSI? That's huge!

    I've been curious to see THE KNACK and THE LONG GOODBYE for a long time, too ... a cool list from MGM, there.

    I wonder how MGM will handle The Unbearable Lightness Of Being ? I'm perfectly happy with my criterion version and have no plans to double-dip....just curious. I doubt they'll get the commentary though.

    I'll be getting Valmont to go with Dangerous Liasons. Very interesting to contrast the 2 movies made about the same time of the same story. It'd be interesting to make a 3rd using the better actors from the 2 existing ones.

    I like Annette Bening better than Glenn Close in their part, but Malkovich better than Colin Firth, and so on.

    I'm guessing that ULOB will be barebones.

    Pride of the Yankees? Sign me up! (unless it's a re-package of that colorized HBO crap)

    Aryn, it is the Nicole Kidman Flirting.
    I'd like to give a plug to a title no one has mentioned. The 1988 High Season, a quirky little gem of a comedy set in Greece with Jacqueline Bisset, James Fox, Irene Papas and a very young pre-Henry V Kenneth Branagh. It's one of those films that slipped through the cracks and deserved better than it got.

    Aryn: MGM just announced the titles only today but gave no specs of any kind.

    Wow, sign me up for 7 out of the 12. I can't decide which I'm happier about - The Long Goodbye, or Koyaanisqatsi.

    Pride Of The Yankees is possibly the greatest baseball film ever made. This news is fantastic (and long overdue). [​IMG]

    I can't believe they are really releasing my no. 1 favorite guilty pleasure -- Texasville!!! Please, please let there be a commentary by Bogdanovich.

    Thank you MGM.

    Lets hope The Unbearable Lightness of Being will recieve a 16*9 transfer, with digital restoration (to remove dirt and scratches), and possible a little colour correction (The criterion dvd looked a bit soft to me).
    BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!
    Yeah, maybe it'll have a DTS track too. so far in my humble collection of DVDs, MGM hasn't had a very good track record.

    I am all over Koyaanisqatsi. I thought the follow up was coming out too? No?

    I'll have to echo Jeff's sentiment. I'm getting frustrated waiting for SG1 season 2.

    Texasville needs a commentary by Bogdanovich (there was a wonderful "director's edition" laserdisc, I recall.) Unfortunately, DVD File made it sound like these titles were bare-bones.
    Maybe I'll have to find that laserdisc off Ebay. I was hoping the eventual DVD would have some features.
    I am also interested in buying P/K, Flirting, Valmont and the Outer Limits releases.
