I'll be adding a very long list sometime today, although I have to tell you Scott, I typically have no idea which studio even made these films originally, much less which hold the rights now, so I won't be sorting them that way.

Hmm. I think I'll avoid TV titles on this list. Perhaps Mr. Lambert would want to spearhead that specific 'genre'. Posted Image

Also, I'm thinking that I'd move the "Already Available in Full Frame" lists into their own thread; kind of a 'scorecard' on which studio demolishes their films most consistently.

I already assist Mr. Gord Lacey with that endeavor. Click here!


What does it take to put smiley's next to the 3 Indy Jones titles? Martin Blythe said they were coming! Posted Image Ditto on Dragonslayer (along with Pretty Baby and Black Sunday). They are no more or less "assured" than Paper Moon is.

You can put smiley's next to Valley Girl (MGM) and Last American Virgin...I know for a fact the latter is being worked on, and the former is pretty much in-the-bag as well.

BenjiMovies.com has said for a year or more that Benji The Hunted was in-the-works from them, along with Oh Heavenly Dog! But when they say "Good News at last! Coming very soon!" for well over twelve months, I stop holding my breath. Posted Image

Once Upon A Time In America is definately coming in June, on the same day as the other 2-Disc SE's for Right Stuff, Giant, and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. LukeB's Ultimate Disney site says Freaky Friday is definately this summer (I forget if he said June or July). Peter Staddon said at the last chat that both Cocoon's are this year. Little Darlings has been said to be coming from Paramount this year.

Perhaps you should use Posted Image for "definately annouced; there's a street date" titles and Posted Image for "strongly known to be in-the-works" titles.


As for adding to the list...how about "If You Could See What I Hear", "The Trouble With Angels" (and the sequel "Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows"), and "The Last Unicorn" (surely going to hit when the new live-action remake film hits...the one starring most of the original cast from the animated film!). If I think of more I'll let you know. I don't get to the Polls section much, though.

A few off the top of my head: All the Mornings of the World (?) Before the Rain (?) Cyrano De Bergerac (1990)* (Orion) Freaks (MGM) The Gunfighter (?) Men With Guns (?) Night on Earth (New Line/Columbia) Once Were Warriors* (?) Proof (?) The Rapture (New Line/Columbia) The Reflecting Skin (Miramax) Santa Sangre (Republic) Voyager (Academy) White Heat (MGM) * Available as Canandian releases, but could stand reissues in the states.

Good idea. I'll do just that. Speaking of your site, it got a little press on Chicago radio this past weekend. The resident DVD guru (I forget his name but he seems to be a bona-fide digital genius; I'll get his name to you once I remember it) was on for his weekly show and was fielding a few calls from the audience. A few consecutive callers asked about specific TV titles and he then went into a brief-yet-enthusiastic rant about some website called TVShowsonDVD.com! Thought you'd like to know. I'll also add your titles to the list. Stop back when you have more titles to add!

And how about some Paul Muni classics, Warner?

Black Fury
The Good Earth
I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang
Juarez
The Life of Emile Zola
The Story of Louis Pasteur
Scarface


And the Bette Davis/Humphrey Bogart/Leslie Howard classic The Petrified Forest?


Edited to cover up my dumb mistake. Posted Image

Steve, are you sure those are MGM titles? IMDb has most of 'em listed as Warner Bros. Just wondering.

Looks good.

Put some Posted Image next to the three Indy Jones films, and add "Hangar 18" (Image perhaps; go for "Misc") and "The Black Shield Of Falworth" (Universal) to the list.
