    I'm hoping that they will do a proper re-issue of FIELD OF DREAMS with 5.1 and anamorphic on a 2 disc set!

    At last! Scarface. Hopefully, a transfer that is respectable. Maybe I should sell my current version for $50.00 on Ebay now.

    As far as reissues go, I hope they get to redo most of the titles they lisenced to Image. Most were OAR, but featured mediocre non-anamorphic transfers. I'd like to see:
    Fahrenheit 451
    Andromeda Strain
    Slaughterhouse Five
    Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun
    Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
    Amazon Women On The Moon
    Flash Gordon
    This Island Earth
    They Live
    They've done a good job with the recent reissues of Cat People and Silent Running.

    What I really want to see from Universal is a cleaned-up, anamorphic Deer Hunter. Extras would help too. Hey, it's not like Michael Cimino wouldn't be available.[​IMG]

    I'd really love to have "Coal Miner's Daughter" & "Imitation of Life"(the Lana Turner version) in their OAR. With "Coal Miner's Daughter" a commentary with Loretta Lynn & Sissy Spacek would thrilling!

    It's funny you should mention Next Movie. After it was over I went up and asked the guy about that title. He told me it belonged to Paramount. I told him he was mistaken. He told me I was mistaken. Anyway, that reminds me....I need to order the anamorphic PAL R4 version tonight. It's only $10 and I really want to see that film again!

    Some titles that were on Universal LDs but never on DVD:

    Charley Varrick
    Colossus: The Forbin Project

    and

    the aforementioned Frighteners Signature Edition LD

    (you'd think they'd capitalize on that to tie-in to Lord of the Rings, no?)

    And more Classic Monsters. I'd heard rumors of all sorts of titles, ranging from the Oliver Reed Curse of the Werewolf to even The Monolith Monsters coming out this fall, but that's not to be I guess.

    Yeah, I don't get it with the Frighteners SE. This is probably one of their most requested titles. Everytime we start talking about Universal re-releasing some stuff, Frighteners gets mentioned. Every time. This should be a real easy decision for Universal to make.
