well I emailed Olive and they replied back to me, saying they made a mistake with their reply to David Weaver about the film  and aren't getting MoPB, bummer :( !

Misterlime was right (unfortunately) :)

IIRC, Olive takes December off from releases, so I wouldn't be surprised to see November have The Bells of St. Mary's on its schedule.

 

Hopefully my most anticipated title, The Pawnbroker, makes it out in October or November.


"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

Wow! They replied to your email? Might be a first!

I message them on Facebook sometimes. They like my suggestion for a coffee mug ..they told me to stay tuned for Beware My Lovely news also. 

Ive given them some movie suggestions and requested they get the extras for Dr Terror for the Blu ray release...I think one of the reasons its taking this long is they are trying to do something special for that title like Witchboard II. I could be wrong of course but its just a hunch. Misterlime could announce it on this page and thats that :)

WITCHBOARD 2: THE DEVIL'S DOORWAY - SPECIAL FEATURES

 

• AUDIO COMMENTARY with writer and director KEVIN S. TENNEY
• BEHIND-THE-SCENES FEATURETTE – Includes interviews with AMI DOLENZ,
   LARAINE NEWMAN, TIMOTHY GIBBS, JULIE MICHAELS, KEVIN S. TENNEY
   and others
• Two Deleted Scenes
• Two Home Video Trailers
• Three TV Spots

 

I'm digging the special features. Now why can't Olive do this with their titles more often (especially porting over extras from the Lionsgate releases of the Republic library)?

According to Olive's Facebook page, they plan to release I've Always Loved You, Magnificent Doll, and That's My Man next year.

Mainly because many of the cast and crew of their older titles are dead ?  Maybe they know the horror movies sell so well that they want to include some stuff to sweeten the pot even more ? Who knows. I know Ticks had extras on it as well

Could be a rights issue of the kind that prevents Twilight Time from porting over extras from previous DVD releases of films they license.

I really think this thread should move to the Blu Ray section and merge with the Olive thread there, which is largely redundant. I doubt most of the people who read this thread are buying the SD releases of Olive titles and shouldn't the posts of the Olive "insider" MisterLime be where the most people will read them? Just a friendly suggestion. :)

I still buy the SD titles from Olive and would not appreciate this thread moving to Blu Ray.

Speaking for the 5 or so of us left in the world without a Blu Ray player, SD works just fine for me.  :rolleyes:

There is a specific reason the threads are kept separate - there is to be no critical discussion of Olive here, but it's allowed in the other thread.

  Because this is an 'informational' thread, and the other is a 'discussion' thread.

 

And basically, there are a lot of people who went overboard with the negativity and personal agendas.   While that is accepted in a discussion thread, it tended to overwhelm the flow of actual information.    And almost drove away the people who were passing on the information.

To quote disconnected youth everywhere: Whatever. Two threads are redundant and the no critical rule seems unnecessary to me, but I don't make 'em, I only break 'em. ;)

Sorry, Mr. Echo, the Olive thread is just fine here. There are still a handful of us who don't worship at the altar of the Blu-ray god! Two threads are hardly redundant. One is for the blu ray fanboys and the other for the SD crowd. Everybody is happy and no one is left out.

It's not a DVD/Blu separation, it's so that MrLime feels he can share here without dissension. It's all there in the older posts.

Amazing that anyone would deny themselves HD at this point and actually seem proud to admit it.

That sounds suspiciously like "Amazing that anyone would deny the existence of God at this point and actually seem proud to admit it"! Non-believers are as fervent in their beliefs as Christians, Mr. Dickstein, though understandably not as popular.

Funny you put it that way since as an Athiest I'd flip your analogy ;)
