Buena Vista will finally release the 80's favorite Flight of the Navigator in June! There aren't any specs yet, but retail will be $19.99.

Also due in June is the 164 minute roadshow version of The Happiest Millionaire.

NICE!! I missed this announcement, but am glad to finally be able to own it...please oh please let it be 16x9 and the unedited version. I remember seeing this in the theater, and remember when it finally aired on the Disney Channel back in the 80s, some scenes were changed.

Buena Vista is pretty good about OAR right? Even though it's owned by Disney
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

Funniest line I have ever read in DVD a review: "'The Simple Life' stars rich, spoiled friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie as two rich, spoiled friends who are taken out of their posh Los Angeles lifestyle and deposited in a small town in Arkansas..."

I cannot wait. There are not many movies that I can't wait to pick up. My house had burned down and this time was a very difficult part of my childhood. This movie and Little Shop of Horrors were a good escape and made the times a little easier. Please Please OAR Brandon

The Black Hole is coming out in August. If it includes a new anamorphic transfer and some extras, I just might repurchase it.

Ditto to that. I too grew up watching this movie as a kid, and to this day I still love it. I just hope it's OAR. Another perennial favorite from the 80s I'd like to see made available is "The Wizard" with Fred Savage.

It's about stinkin' time! I haven't seen it in years and hope it's as good as I remember it. If it's OAR, it's mine!

Personally, I'm excited about A Far Off Place coming out in June. I always felt is a was a good family film. Here's hoping for OAR. Posted Image Posted Image

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932
