Nice. There's been a good-looking 1.85:1 transfer running on the Sundance Channel (and probably elsewhere) for a while.
I've had to make do with my R4 pan-and-scan Aussie dvd for a while now. Be glad to retire it.
Thanks for the great news!
AWESOME~! Best news I've had this week.
This was the #1 title on my hope-this-comes-to-DVD list. Between this and Grisbi, 2005 makes me happy already.
There are three titles I've been waiting forever for on DVD and they are all coming out in March of 2005....
Obviously Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, To Be Or Not To Be (The Jack Benny version), and Bringing Up Baby.... should be a great month.
if i had to single out any movie that "inspired" me to seek out independent type movies, this would be the one.
up to that point, all i knew was hollywood. after watching that, i remember thinking, "wow, there's other stuff out there?".
the verbal volley scene still cracks me up!
truly, for me, a land-mark film.
This is great news! I've been waiting for this one to be properly released. All we need know is Branagh's Hamlet, and my Hamlet cravings will subside...
i love the little sight gags like the fokker triplane paper airplane, the bath water displacement, and the hanging baskets.
and yes, the verbal volley match is a riot. i'm afraid that's something that never really registered with me the first time i saw it, but i only just got after seeing it on cable the past year. i guess that's what good wordplay does to you.
me too! it took me a second to realize they were demonstrating (as yet discovered?) laws of physics, etc.
what was the hanging basket one?
Image's site's been wonky for me lately so finally I've managed to get on it. They have the cover up, notice anything strange?
I notice "2 DVD Set!" Sweet!!!
well, i guess not really baskets, but the row of clay pots holding beans or whatever, and rosencrantz(or was it guildenstern? ) nudges one, which hits the one next to it, causing the last one in the line to move, you know, like those rows of metal balls hanging that some people have on their desks? you pull two away, let them go and they hit, and then two from the other end pop away from the line?
so anyway, he tries this a couple more times, the last pot in line keeps moving as a result, so then he gets guildenstern(or rosencrantz?) to come over and look at it, whereupon he brings the pot way back and lets it go, but when it strikes the next pot this time, it cracks from the impact and the entire bottom falls out. guildenstern(?) just looks at him like, "so that's the big deal you wanted to show me? idiot"
Not another floating head cover!
Well, it would have to be heads, wouldn't it
I'm kind of surprised that they're going with the same art as the old VHS tape. Is this the original 1-sheet art for the film? Anyway, I'm surprised they aren't going with some over-photoshopped monstrosity. Wow!
oh yeah! it was funny how what's his name never "caught" the scientific experiment. really, this is just a great flick.
I'm all over this one. I've been dying for this on DVD since I got my player.
Well it comes out tomorrow and the first reviews have started to appear. A bit late but still nice. This has turned out to be a really loaded release, even though it was really downplayed for some reason by Image (DTS and 3 hours of interviews!).
That's all I could find.
Once again, outstanding news! For a while there, I doubted I'd ever see it get a decent r1 release. The antithesis of a mass-market film, but for those of us who love it, an essential part of our collection.
Sounds like an impressive release.
