I know it's not supposed to be very good, but I've always wanted to see Nightwing. Hope it won't be too long a wait for it.
And it's about time they got around to releasing an R1 of The Anderson Tapes.

actually, after some research it looks like there are quite a few of these that pique my interest. Will definitely be picking up most of the first wave next DD sale.



BTW- you left out $(Dollars) from the first wave...which is another film I've been wanting to see for years.

Will these be available individually, or as a box set as a "Martini" movie?

Hopefully it wount be overpriced (for a barebone affair) like the earlier Sony catalog titles.

I don't think Nickelodeon even received a VHS release.

Nice to see they're putting some thought into marketing their catalog titles. How about a "Drive-In Movies" line that would include

The Stone Killer
White Line Fever
Shadow of the Hawk
Baby Blue Marine
Drive-In (duh!)
Aaron Loves Angela
The Amsterdam Kill
The Stranger and the Gunfighter

It's hard to imagine anyone swilling martinis during the hardboiled NEW CENTURIONS or THE GARMENT JUNGLE or HUSBANDS. They don't give off a lounge vibe. But Sony is bouncing back, what with its Hammer sets and this new, if curious, promotion.

SKATETOWN USA
FAST BREAK
GRAVY TRAIN
BUTTERCUP CHAIN
JOE EGG
DANDY IN ASPIC
HAMMERHEAD
WHEN YOU COMIN BACK RED RYDER
Go BETWEEN

Like many others posting, I'll certainly pick up THE ANDERSON TAPES. And, wow, cool to see that FIVE (1951) appears to be in the offing.

I'd like to see some of Sony's "film noir" released in this line. How about:

HUMAN DESIRE
711 OCEAN DRIVE
THE SNIPER
THE LINEUP
THE KILLER WHO STALKED NEW YORK
MURDER BY CONTRACT
UNDERWORLD U.S.A.
TIGHT SPOT
SCANDAL SHEET
PUSHOVER
NIGHTFALL
MAN IN THE DARK
CITY OF FEAR
THE NIGHT HOLDS TERROR
EDGE OF ETERNITY
THE CRIMSON KIMONO
SCREAMING MIMI

Other possibilities:

BEAT THE DEVIL (Sony's superior print)
HEY BOY! HEY GIRL! (The Louie Prima/Keely Smith movie)
DUFFY
THE DEADLY AFFAIR
A PRIZE OF GOLD

On the goofy end of Martini (or Drive-In) fare:

THE LOVE-INS
13 FRIGHTENED GIRLS
ZOTZ!
KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE
SUPERARGO VS. DIABOLICUS
THEY RAN FOR THEIR LIVES

My Current Damage at DVD Aficionado

Wanted in R1: UNEARTHLY STRANGER ('63) / IF I HAD A MILLION ('32) / THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK ('41) / IT CONQUERED THE WORLD ('56) / TERROR ABOARD ('33) / DANGER ROUTE ('68) / THE BLISS OF MRS. BLOSSOM ('68) / GUNN ('67) / ZOO IN BUDAPEST ('33) / THE SEA WOLF ('41) / DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS ('63, restored) / ALAKAZAM THE GREAT ('60) / DARKER THAN AMBER ('70) / THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME ('47) / CROSSWINDS ('51) / JIVARO ('54)

I'm in for I Never Sang For My Father. Haven't seen it for 25+ years, but I remember thinking it was quite good at the time. Of course I was much younger then, and not nearly the discriminating film snob I am today! :-)

The Stone Killer is perhaps one of Charles Bronson's best movies.
