"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

Yes, but when Criterion's have bonus films I wait until there's confirmation that they are in HD to list them. They usually are, but not always.

I know you posted these titles and then deleted them, but the Movies 4 You: Timeless Westerns cover art is on Amazon and it is a Blu-ray (although the disc has the DVD logo on it)

Thanks. I think I'm gonna wait until there's a review before I post them again. Just an odd release all around.

 

EDIT 5/21 - Nevermind. I'll add them again now.

Thanks for the update, Travis! I was wondering when they'd get formal release dates for Psycho II & III. (However, the Scanners sequels are not pre-90s).

Duh, that's right. I was thinking they were made in the late 80's.

I think you need to edit so that it's The Big Country and not just Big Country, good list though for American releases, perhaps consider doing one that incorporates the rest of the World too so we can maybe buy the best version of a film out there.

Thanks - hadn't noticed the "The" missing on The Big Country.

 

As far as non-US releases, 1990+ titles, short films, etc. - I just don't have the energy for it. I had to set parameters to work within so it didn't over consume my time. Right now even the 80s titles are getting a bit cumbersome. :)
