I'm quite sure that many (most?) over at the "snob forum" would be quite happy with The Thing from Another World making it into the collection (it's a Hawks films after all!).

After the hate that spewed over there about IAMMMMW, I'd be surprised. I posted over there about hoping to see "Night Train to Munich" upgraded by Criterion to Blu and was chased from the forum by villagers with torches and pitchforks!

Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly" killed. Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant), Hitchcock's North By Northwest (1959)

The Vanishing seemed obvious to me. I heard at least a month ago somewhere on that one though.

The Thing From Another World is owned by Warner Bros. No reason to expect Criterion ever getting a look at it.

Badlands is a Warner title, though? (or was)

I'm guessing Badlands was just a one-off deal since it's been over a year now. Although, there was entire year between the first two MGM licenses (House of Games and Salo re-release).

I read on one of these past threads that Criterion's release of BADLANDS was a one of special deal. But we can always hope, but don't hold your breath. Warner seems to acquiring licenses such as Paramount and Goldwyn and not licensing out properties.

Or "The Vanishing", but then it should be in blue since it's re-release right?

 

I think the "Blu clues are in blue" has been dropped since everything they release now is Blu or Blu-DVD combo.

 

I welcome an update of The Vanishing. Amazing film. For those who associate foreign films with "snobdom" - give this one a try. It's very accessable.


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

"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

nothing for me this month. Which is fine since I'm in for so many of their other titles.

 

(maybe "All that Jazz", I've heard so many good things about it...)

Wow....several "nothing to see here" months in a row for me (with Red River a notable exception). Criterion's saving me some $ to apply to TT and Kino Classics titles!

Depends what you're looking for. Blus of Love Streams and particularly All That Jazz should be spectacular.

I've been waiting for a Blu-ray of All That Jazz since I first watched the DVD, which was in 2007, if my recollections are right.

 

This is a mouth-watering announcement. Sorry, but the others didn't even register in my mind.

I've been a fan of All That Jazz ever since I saw it theatrically on its original release. It was only the third or fourth R-rated movie I had ever seen as a teenager. I had the soundtrack on vinyl. By the way, has someone paged Ron Epstein? I know he's a fan.

Nah. Let him geek out when he gets the press release from Criterion. :D
