    Yes, I know that this thread is also in studio feedback, but I thought that if I put it in two areas that it will get more feedback!!1:wink:

    Here are some of the movies that I think deserve to be re-released due to the fact that they deserve a good special edition with extras and possibly extended versions that have been seen on tv and online! We need new special editions of movies other than the American Pie movies
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    -Waterworld (I think that this movie really deserves a new version! I have seen the extended cut of the movie and I think that it adds so much to the movie! As you know, this movie at one point was the most expensive movie! There could be so many cool featurettes on this movie! It needs either an extended cut or deleted scenes!)

    ---Hard Target (John woo's Director's cut is so much better than the version that was released! We need to have it on dvd as my tape is getting worn out!! I am sure that woo would love to make a special edition dvd of this movie!)

    ---Ransom (I have the director's cut of this movie on LD, and I think that it would be great to have it on dvd! We already know from ed tv and beautiful mind that ron howard likes the dvd format and would be more than happy to make extras!)

    -Far and Away (Here is another howard movie that needs a special edition. I have seen the longer cut of this and it add so much to this already great movie! Please release the added scenes on dvd!!)

    -Backdraft (We need a better version of this on dvd possibly with the deleted scenes and maybe featurettes!)

    King Kong (1976) (I love this king kong remake! I would love to see production featurettes as well as all of the extended tv footage put onto a new se dvd and in 16:9 widescreen please

    [​IMG]
    Frightener's (Universal what happened here, you release a super cool and super expensive ld of this movie then release a bare bones dvd! Now the Jackson is hot, you need to re-release his old movies! Many people including myself would love to see the director's cut of this movie and well as the extras from the LD

    Superman (I was very pleased with the se that was released, but I would have liked to see the rest of the deleted footage that has been shown on tv, unlike many tv versions this one actually adds a great deal to the movie! Please if anything just release a deleted scenes disc[​IMG]

    Superman II & Superman III & Superman IV ( All three of this films need a special edition dvd with their extended tv cuts, especially Superman II. I have seen the 156 minute version of Superman II and I must say that it is a much better movie than the one that was released in theaters! Also, I would love to see the screener 130 minute cut of Superman IV, I am sure that that version was a lot better than what was released!:b )

    Dead Poets Society (Here is another movie that had a better ld than a dvd![​IMG] We need to have the extended cut availiable to us on dvd format!)

    Spinal Tap & Apocalypse Now ( Here are two movies that have very long workprints each one being over 4.5 hours in length[​IMG] I am not suggesting that we release the 4.5 version as an extended dvd! I would like to see all of this footage availaible as extras or as deleted scenes! Please, this extra footage is really good!)

    I am sure that there are other movies that deserve se's so please add them, and maybe the studio's will listen!!

    Titanic most definitely.

    Also I would just love to see a nice 2 disk SE of Deep Impact in 16x9 of course and with some documentaries on real near misses, impacts and of course the E.L.E. 65 million years ago.

    Here are my choices (all have been released previously in Region 1):

    Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Almodóvar/1988/MGM/UA)
    Belle de jour (Buñuel/1967/Miramax)--a huge opportunity was lost with Miramax's recent re-release/price-drop-only of this title
    Faces (Cassavetes/1968/Pioneer)
    Mulholland Dr. (Lynch/2001/Universal)--nahh, I'm not asking for the impossible (a Lynch commentary), but a little explication would be nice à la Blue Velvet SE (MGM/UA)
    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Demy/1964/Fox Lorber)
    Shoeshine (De Sica/1947/Image)
    The Bicycle Thief (De Sica/1948/Image)
    Bonnie and Clyde (Penn/1967/Warner)
    Chinatown (Polanski/1974/Paramount)
    Stagecoach (Ford/1939/Warner)
    The Searchers (Ford/1956/Warner)
    Open City (Rossellini/1945/Image)
    The Mirror (Tarkovsky/1974/Kino)
    Double Indemnity (Wilder/1944/Image/Universal)
    Ju Dou (Yimou/1990/Buena Vista)

    And you should also know that doing such is not permitted here. I closed the thread in Feedback. Since your thread is more conversational in nature, I'm letting this one stand.

    Heaven's Gate - The current DVD is non-anamorphic, and as the new region 2 SE of The Deer Hunter shows, Cimino is willing to do interviews and commentaries. A region 1 SE of The Deer Hunter is also needed.

    Apocalypse Now - This is such a tricky one. Both versions? DTS? Hearts Of Darkness documentary? New documentary? Commentary by Coppola and cast and crew? I was surprised to see a SE of One From The Heart before this one.

    Journey Through The Past - Neil Young's legendary out-there semi-documentary collage of images and sounds from 1972. Never released on home video. The bootleg DVDs are starting to appear on Ebay, so Shakey ought to get his own official version out on DVD with outtakes, etc.

    Renaldo & Clara - Bob Dylan's legendary out-there semi-documentary collage of images and sounds from 1978. Never relesed on home video. 4-hour version, of course! [​IMG]

    Shawshank Redemption is supposedly getting a 10th Anniversary re-release into theaters next year followed by a 2-Disc SE next fall. I read that on AICN a few months ago. I hope it pans out. [​IMG]

    Gone With The Wind (which is rumored for 2004)

    Just a remaster would get me to re-buy. The inclusion of a commentary or two, a music-only track, the making-of doc, and other features (perhaps the long lost trims found)

    The Maltese Falcon

    My vision of a good SE would feature a newly remastered transfer (the original is wonderful, but has some nitrate decomp and some dupe sections), perhaps a commentary by Roger Ebert, the radio show, and the two previous 1930's versions (which could fit on disc two). Also, it could retain the great TCM program on the trailers of Bogart's career.


    "Weird Al" Yankovic: The Videos (remastered video/5.1 sound edition coming in November!)

    Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie

    Simply have a new 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation with DTS sound. Perhaps include the trailer and the deleted scenes. Perhaps Universal could go farther and include This Island Earth.

    I'll second Dazed and Confused, Gone With The Wind and Heaven's Gate and also call for The Seachers,
    The Wild Bunch
    and 2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick didn't seem to have any problems with extras on Criterion's director-approved laserdisc boxset).

    A few I'd like to see are:

    Jean de Florette
    Manon of the Spring
    The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
    Time Bandits (coming in '04!)
    Oliver! (current one is good, but a little bare-bones)

    In addition to many ideas mentioned above:

    Dick Tracy (I want all the deleted scenes!)

    The Quick and the Dead (I wanna see the deleted stuff with Bruce Campbell)
