How Would you want Criterion to handle MAD WORLD?

  1. I would like to see *everything* that was included on the Laserdisc release even if it does not match in quality (119 votes [65.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 65.75%

  2. The film is too long already. Would only want to see those scenes intended for the original RoadShow release (53 votes [29.28%])

    Percentage of vote: 29.28%

  3. All I want is the overture and exit music. Don't need all those extra scenes added (9 votes [4.97%])

It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie, but Mad World is in my top ten.

Let's just hope for an announcement real soon on this and it's all what we hope this newest and special release is going to turn out to be, not only to make a lot of us fans of the movie happy and excited about the potential release, but at the same time to prevent Joe Lugoff from going off the deep end and causing himself a heart attack and going insane at the same time. We should know something soon, as Ron has been alluding to.

Maybe tomorrow...

Or maybe I should go for the Beatles vibe and sing Tomorrow Never Knows.

Yes Steve, announcements made this month are for January releases. They usually don't release anything the first Tuesday of a month (which is the seventh) so the potential dates are: 1/141/211/28

Well we always know the date of an announcement, it's always the 15th - unless it falls on a weekend then it's either the Friday or Monday nearest.

As the voice of pessimism here, I predict a November announcement -- November of 2016.

 

Actually, what I really think is going to happen is that the whole thing will be cancelled at the last minute due to an unforeseen legal problem.

I got a feeling this is going to be announced for either a February or March 2014 release with all the bells and whistles we've been clamoring for.

I wonder what we are looking at disc wise? 1 blu-ray or 2? 2 DVD's or 3? And how much would a 5 disc set cost? Criterion swears that the dual format releases won't increase the retail price. But will this be massive enough to warrant a $50 SRP?I paid more than that for the laserdisc. And the B&N sale will cut the price in half. So I am not too worried in the great scheme of things.But regardless of price, this will be a day one purchase for me.

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow, you're only a day away!

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time;And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!Life's but a walking shadow, a poor playerThat struts and frets his hour upon the stageAnd then is heard no more. It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and furySignifying nothing.;)
