    What's Left?
    The Most Wanted on DVD Tournament


    I ran a similar Tourney a couple of years ago & it was pretty fun.

    Eligible films
    1. Films that are NOT currently available on R1 DVD (official releases only)
    2. Films on DVD but are not presented OAR or OSL.
    3. Theatrical releases only - no miniseries, TV shows, direct to video, etc.
    4. OOP discs don't count. If you've got the money they can still be yours. [​IMG]
    5. Films that are officially announced for DVD are not eligible i.e. Star Wars Trilogy, etc.

    Voting
    Wide open - you may vote for the more interesting film if you haven't seen both films in a match.

    Nominations
    5 Automatics for everyone.
    Include the year of release, IMDB links are optional but helpful with the more obscure films.

    I'll start out with my first 5 picks

    Some excellent choices there, Jimbo. [​IMG]

    Trotting out my usual favorites not on DVD:

    Proof (1992) - Considering it stars Russell Crowe and Hugo Weaving and received excellent reviews, I really don't understand why this ain't out. WTF, New Line?
    Voyager (1991)
    Santa Sangre (1989)
    Before the Rain (1994)
    Night on Earth (1991)


    I'll pop back in with IMDB links in a bit...

    Proof

    Voyager

    Santa Sangre

    Before the Rain

    Night on Earth

    Steve,

    I don't remember where I read it but Santa Sangre is rumored to be in the works from Criterion. However as with all rumors - take that with a grain of salt. [​IMG]

    Santa Sangre from Criterion? Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Edited my above post to include links. Also dropped The Reflecting Skin (I'll let Walter nom it) and added Before the Rain.

    Bill: I'll invest in an all-region player one of these days - I'm a poor movie enthusiast. I've seen R0 Santa Sangre DVDs on eBay; does anyone know if they're legit and of decent quality?

    And good call on Red Sorghum - my favorite Zhang Yimou film. [​IMG]

    I hate throwing out peoples automatics but Berlin Alexanderplatz was a TV miniseries. If it got a theatrical release let me know Brook & I’ll allow it, I just don’t want to open up this tourney to include Gilligans Island episodes & it’s ilk.


    For those who've participated so far and HAVE PROVIDED LINKS - 5 more automatics [​IMG]

    For those who've participated so far and DID NOT PROVIDE LINKS - 1 more automatic. That’s what you get for making me work more :p)
    And don’t bother editing them now because I Know Who You Are. [​IMG]

    For anyone who hasn't participated yet you still have 5 automatics.

    My next 5 picks

    Point Blank

    Ride the High Country

    Island of Lost Souls

    Gojira (1954)

    Sword of Doom

    Again links are still optional. [​IMG]
