As we're approaching the end of another year, I just thought I'd share my 12 most-wanted DVD titles for 2005. I've limited these to films that haven't yet appeared on DVD (not counting numerous inferior public-domain releases of One-Eyed Jacks), and I've listed them by owning studio.


The Go-Between (Losey)


Julia (Zinneman)


Thieves Like Us (Altman)


Ace In The Hole (Wilder)
One-Eyed Jacks (Brando)
If... (Anderson)


Taking Off (Forman)


Fedora (Wilder)
Lust For Life (Minnelli)
Point Blank (Boorman)
Prince Of The City (Lumet)
Reflections In A Golden Eye (Huston)

I guess it's possible that some of these titles could be licensed to Criterion, for example 'Julia', 'Thieves Like Us' and 'Taking Off'.

Although it's starting to become painfully obvious to me that James Cameron is waiting until the tenth anniversary for this but...

Two Weeks in Another Town

I think this is still MGM, as it was on laserdisc.

(Although imagining a Criterion version of this makes me tingle with misplaced anticipation).

Also, of course...

The Sopranos Season Five
The Simpsons Seasons 6, 7, 8?
Seinfeld Seasons 4+

Isn't it funny how all the best TV shows begin with 'S'....?!

For the Titanic SE crowd, just in case you missed this Rumor Mill entry from the Digital Bits last month, here's what they had to say about it:


A few weeks ago, we mentioned the possibility that Paramount was going to be releasing a new special collector's edition of James Cameron's Titanic in 2005. We have a little bit of new information. The DVD production work on the title will be handled by 20th Century Fox. Word has leaked out of Fox's European operation that the title is expected to be a 4-disc edition, tentatively set for release in the Summer of 2005. This seems to confirm what we've heard from our industry sources - specifically that the studio was considering a 4-disc presentation. However, from what we've heard, production has not yet officially begun on the title (or is only just starting to happen). NOTHING is set in stone about this release yet, and our sources are telling us that a late 2005 (4th Qtr) release at the earliest is more likely. So don't start counting your chickens yet, but if you're a fan, be comforted in knowing that a better DVD version of the film is finally on the radar in a more substantial way.
