DVD File announced that a ton of Universal Bob Hope films will be coming to DVD soon that were originally put out my image. It looks like new tranfers with some extras will be the "SE" versions. I hope this is the start of Universal putting out quality discs of the ones they originally gave to Image to work with (MST3K: TM, Marx Bros., Double Indemmity anyone?)

The day that I can hold an honest-to-goodness Flash Gordon special edition in my hand, complete with a fully restored anamorphic transfer, commentary with the principal actors, and some nice behind the scenes footage and/or documentaries (if possible), will be the day that I actually forget all about the possibility of having the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Back to the Future trilogies on DVD.

Well, for that one day anyway Posted Image

Where's an anamorphic reissue of The Meaning of Life?

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.

Universal is releasing a box set of the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby road movies on 3/5. A couple of these were previous Image releases.

And also a nice copy of The Seven Percent Solution. The original Image copy was grainy and not OAR. IIRC this was the FIRST DVD released by Image for Universal.

Just got their new edition of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS and it's great (good anamorphic transfer + director commentary!)! Here's hoping it's an indicator of things to come.

** Oops. Just realized the header says "Universal". Oh well. MGM did a great job with this former Image title so my comments still apply. Sort of... Posted Image

I'd like to see Prince of Darkness, They Live, and Andromeda Strain re-released by Universal as special editions.

A good transfer of Paul Schrader's Cat People would be nice.

While there is little wrong with Fahrenheit 451 or Slaughterhouse 5, new anamorphic transfers from the same elements would be awesome. I'd also like to see a better version of Silent Running.

Count me in for a Flash Gordon special edition as well. One other thing, was Dracula(1979) with Frank Langella an image title? I really, REALLY want Universal to do a special edition for this one.Posted Image
