    I for one do NOT want QUATERMASS XPERIMENT from this program. If so, I'll wait for an international release using MGM's restoration and with extras.

    Quote:

    What if this program rivals, if not exceeds, Sony's? I understand Sony's MOD program is pretty damn sweet! MOVIES UNLIMITED has an international version of THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT. It's the only place I have seen selling this flick, sadly, I have yet to acquire it, so I don't know what the quality is like.

    Let me get this straight - it looks like they won't do any direct selling but leave it to the retailers. Just expanding on what they started at Amazon.com?

    400 titles - sounds like the cream of the MGM-UA/Orion/Filmways/AIP library - I wonder how many will be older DVD titles no longer in print?

    I remember reading somewhere that Fox will be doing this with its movies sometime next year as well. Does anyone recall hearing about this?

    THE NAKED STREET, THE BIG NIGHT, THE CAPTIVE CITY, 99 RIVER STREET and several others are available on Netflix streaming. They've added tons of MGM titles over the past few weeks including many items that were never even on VHS.

    Good news (and there was talk of a Fox MOD some time ago, but perhaps this Fox/MGM MOD is it).

    A few more titles listed here: http://www.thewrap.com/movies/article/fox-use-dvd-manufacturing-demand-mine-mgm-catalog-22229

    But as a MOD supporter I'm only cautiously optimistic. The existing MGM Limited Edition Collection releases were pretty spotty quality-wise, and I can only hope that mistakes were learned from.

    So any word on WHICH retailers will be distributing these? And Availablity?

    So just how many film titles are in the MGM-UA/Orion/Filmways/AIP Combined Library?

    400 is a lot of movies...I hope Fox/MGM doesn't forget about us cult film enthusiasts. I will happily pay $20 for a good copy of Incredible Melting Man.

    As far as I know, The Prowler is not controlled by MGM/UA. There is something in the works from the Film Noir Foundation instead.
