Several on your list will be released either in 2002 or by the latest 2003. You're going to pleasently surprised!
That is indeed good news. I didn't list ones that I know are coming soon or that there are reliable rumors about, so that makes what you're saying all the better!

Lots of good choices here. Two I didn't see:

Over the Edge
The Last American Virgin

Both sort of cultish/HBOish movies from my youth that I'd love to have on DVD.

Great choices people, I'd like to add to my original list:

Police Squad (thanks for reminding me Ron Posted Image )

Wyatt Earp Director's Cut

Major Dundee - preferably restored to a longer cut, even if the "director's cut" is currently a pipedream for obvious reasons

The Vikings

The Wild Geese

Dial M for Murder in both 3D and flat (although the later version may be coming within the year)

Metropolis (the brand new restored version)

Once Upon A Time in America (although I believe this is currently being worked on by warner for 2003) - possibly even in it's 4.5 hour version...

A Fistfull of Dynamite or Duck U Sucker - in the uncut, Stereophonic version restored recently in Italy

That's great news, Dick. I had heard about "The Tenant" but somehow missed the news that "Don't Look Now" was coming too.

In that case, I'll substitute that choice on my list with another from Paramount - "The Day of the Locust"

So many, many excellent choices in this thread that I would buy. While I'm here I'll second, with enthusiasm, just a handful of titles that others have mentioned: "The Fountainhead," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "The Great Gatsby," "Last Exit to Brooklyn," and "Lust for Life."

All I know is that I've decided that the next Paramount or Lucasfilm related DVD(s) I'll purchase will be one or all of the Indiana Jones films. That's all I know. It's high time these two companies do something for Indiana Jones fans in 2002. If they don't, then they can go to hell as far as I'm concerned. There will be too much good stuff coming from Universal, Buena Vista, and Fox (excluding Episode II); Paramount and Lucasfilm have to pull out this "big gun" we've been waiting for.

There are 19 movies left on my list of "wanted" that I created back in 1997. My # of DVDs purchased in 2001 was down 44% in 2001 (vs. 2000), while the average price paid was up 58% (a reflection of the collapse of the online price wars which ended in 3Q 2000). Overall, my total $ spent on DVDs in 2001 was down 12% over 2000.

In my opinion, the releases in 2001 (with some notable exceptions like Snow White & Forrest Gump) were of the order of "I could take it or leave it." At the end of the year, the same core of "most wanted" still remained on my list (Schindler, ET, Indiana Jones, etc). Let's hope 2002 will see some of these core titles finally released (at least it looks like ET and Schindler might be coming).
