    Ok part II, these are the back catalogue titles I'd love to see on DVD that, as yet, haven't appeared on the format and, to my knowledge, are not scheduled for release:
    Where Eagles Dare
    The Battle of The Buldge
    Catch A Thief
    Suspicion
    Shortcuts
    Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (The full version including the 2 minutes forgotten about when it was "restored" to it's director's cut in 1986...
    The Hammer version of "Hound of the Baskervilles"
    Disney's 20,000 leagues under the sea
    Plus I think I speak for most when I request...
    Star Wars Trilogy (preferably before 2006...)
    All the Disney animated films - again do they seriously think we'll be buying dvd's in 2010???
    Indiana Jones Trilogy
    Back to the Future Trilogy (although this may be coming in 2002)
    Go for it people [​IMG]

    Mark,

    Please realize that the studios have already

    completed most of their release decisions for 2002.

    Let's hope these are amongst them, and if not,

    there's always 2003.

    Besides the obvious....

    * Little Big Man (Paramount)

    * Twilight's Last Gleaming (Paramount)

    * Scrooge (Paramount)

    * On Golden Pond (Fox?)

    * Voyage to the Center of the Earth (Fox)

    * One Upon A Time in America (Warner)

    * Twilight Zone: The Movie (Warner)

    * Jerry Lewis Movies incl.Cinderfella (Mostly Paramount)

    * White Heat (Warner)

    * Angels With Dirty Faces (Warner)

    * The Compleat Beatles (MGM)

    * All the Bowery Boys movies

    * Police Squad TV Series (Paramount)

    If I listed every catalog title I want and would buy, it would take me an hour. Seriously there are still over 300 titles that I'm anticipating. So, here are the 25, off the top of my head, that seem to be my most wanted. I excluded the obvious ones that will come eventually, and also the titles I believe to be in production (like All That Jazz, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, and Serpico, for instance)

    Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

    Coal Miner's Daughter

    Don't Look Now

    Forbidden Games

    Gloria (Cassavettes version)

    Husbands and Wives

    I Confess

    Imitation of Life (color version)

    Lenny

    Long Goodbye

    Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

    Mildred Pierce

    Music Box

    My Own Private Idaho

    Shame

    Shampoo

    Short Cuts

    Streamers

    Sweet Charity

    Three Women

    Treasure of Sierra Madre

    Vincent & Theo

    Virgin Spring

    Weekend

    What's Up Doc

    Wind (1992 Columbia TriStar film starring Matthew Modine & Jennifer Grey)
    Crossroads (1986 Columbia Pictures film starring Ralph Macchio & Joe Seneca)
    Quest for Fire - Thank you Shane (two posts below), I had forgotten this one.

    I'm only including titles that have not been on DVD (even a crappy Madacy disc). I wouldn't rank SE's in the same place as brand new releases. Studios need to work on introducing more movies to the DVD format instead of fixing minor things like flipper discs and sub-par transfers. Some movies may have poor DVD's, but some don't have any at all. Besides, studios should get it right the first time so they don't waste time on SE's and reduce time for titles not even out yet.

    Anyways...here's my list:

    Around the World in Eighty Days [Both the 24fps and 30fps versions] (It is being restored at this moment, so hopefully a late 2002 date.)

    Song of the South (Also being restored.)

    20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (BV mentioned it in Studio Day)

    The Cameraman (Currently being restored by WB)

    King Kong (Being restored by Lowry Digital)

    The Grapes of Wrath (Fox is restoring it now.)

    Ed Wood (also mentioned in SD)

    more Disney cartoons (SD mention)

    The Producers (Scheduled for 2002)

    UHF (same thing)

    Sunset Blvd. (Sched. for 2002)

    Top Secret (same thing)

    I remember reading in here somewhere that

    Dragonslayer

    wouldn't be out in 2002, but

    Martin Blythe restated, "Maybe 2003."

    I can only hope the delay was due to

    the existing elements needing work,

    since the film is so dark, this might make sense,

    even if the LD was anamorphic.

    Funny thing is, with all these Wizard/Dragon/Sorecery

    HIT films out right now, and with more to come,

    I would hope Paramount would realize

    they have one of the best sitting in storage!

    -Mark

    Another vote for Young Sherlock Holmes.

    I love this movie...I just do...Thank god for AMC, or else I would have:

    A.) Probably never seen it.

    and

    B.) Not have the decent widescreen recording I do.
