Anchor Bay has already announced two of my most desired Fox titles- CEMETERY MAN and THE ANNIVERSARY, so that just leaves---SHOCK TREATMENT. Yes, a SHOCKY DVD release would be much appreciated.

of course, we can always bundle this list up with Fox's wish list, considering there is no rela pattern on what goes to AB or what goes to Fox! (example, TURNING POINT should have went to Fox, while DRIVER should have went to AB)

Zorro the Gay Blade, the original AB release was cancelled/delayed. What's odd is that DVDempire has front and back cover information. Maybe was pushed back to add SE features????

A Guide For The Married Man is one i would love to see on Dvd.

i keep forgetting about Pretty Poison, too.
that to me seems tailor made for Anchor Bay (maybe even Criterion).

i wouldn't be surprised to see AB release this(next year) w/a few supplements sprinkled in.

Star Wars trilogy Original versions .

Of course! While they're at it, get Criterion to do Howard the Duck.

On a more serious note, I'd like to see Fox license "Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure" to Anchor Bay. It was directed by Richard Williams (animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and is really neat. It was filmed in Panavision, so it would be neat to finally see a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen DVD.

How about a special edition of Commando. Nothing like a good 80's shoot-em up.

Does anyone know the reason why Pretty Poison has never been released on home video?

I do wonder what criteria Fox has used to determine which titles to license to Anchor Bay and Criterion? Considering that Anchor Bay released Death Hunt perhaps Fox will license another Lee Marvin title to Anchor Bay - Emperor of the North Pole.

Echoing the sentiments of others in this thread:
The Innocents
Bedazzled (1967) - When Fox, when?
A Guide For The Married Man
The Other

And some of my other usual Fox requests that might make their way to Anchor Bay:

Panic In Needle Park - probably not an AB release but who knows?
The Quiet Earth - Again, when Fox, when?
Soldier Blue
Royal Flash
The Seven-Ups

And from TV:
Tribes (1970)
Dark Night of the Scarecrow
The Norliss Tapes

- Walter.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Robin Hood: Men In Tights (1993) - Cary Elwes

All I require is a 16x9 enhanced (1.85:1) transfer, the original soundtrack, and the Mel Brooks commentary track from the 1994 LaserDisc. More extras would be great, but I do not require them.
