Did anyone mention Seems Like Old Times? I love Goldie and Chevy and the Marvin Hamlisch score!

I don't know if this is still with Sony, but I would love to see a release of Neil Simon's Only When I Laugh, which featured Oscar nominated turns by Marsha Mason, James Coco and Joan Hackett.

 

Also, with the sad news about Eileen Brennan, I've been reminded that I would LOVE a blu ray of Murder By Death, another Neil Simon piece.

Yes Murder by Death and The Cheap Detective on BLU would be great. I know many have been wanting a special edition for Murder By Death forever! TT would use the cooler poster art for covers at least. Everyone is great in MbD

Louis, one more title from your list, Janus Films now has TESS, so Criterion will be releasing that.

I recently got the German discs of The China Syndrome and Tootsie.  Both are excellent.  (They would top my TT wish list, but I'd rather see them focus first on films unavailable on blu elsewhere,)

California Suite is with Image.  I'd like that on Blu ray also.  I'd like some more William Castle titles, Murphy's Romance, The Front, and Devil in a Blue Dress (TriStar) on Blu ray.  Not sure who has any of them these days.  Also, The Big Chill has a new 4K remaster but I have not heard who will be releasing it.


Big Chill is also with CC

I have their letterboxed LD of this movie as well as Sony's 15th Anniversary DVD...the HD upgrade is overdue, as this was one of the seminal films of the early '80s and for me, Lawrence Kasdan's best overall work as both a director and writer...

Murder by Death would rank among my top five wants on Blu-ray

 

I was hoping someone would mention MURDER BY DEATH

sometime before the end of page 3 of this thread.

 

In my top 3 most awaited Blu-ray releases.

 

If we are lucky, perhaps the Sherlock Holmes ending restored.

 

Any cover art done for this release would be superior to the 

dreck that Sony put together for the DVD release.

The Big Chill. I have an idea this film was released in two different lengths in Australia on VHS way back then. I remember in the early 2000s a dormer friend bringing the tapes around and showing me.

 

Anyone know of this situation?

So many good suggestions here, particularly MACBETH and A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS (and, yes, MURDER BY DEATH). Would love to see FAIL SAFE, OUR MAN IN HAVANA, and the underrated ENIGMA too -- and the WINGS OF DESIRE sequel, FARAWAY SO CLOSE! Can't believe Sony has never put out CANDYMAN, either. 

 

It would be great to see some of John Sayles' Sony titles (LIMBO, etc.) issued by either Twilight Time or Criterion. Columbia put out CITY OF HOPE on VHS twenty years ago, but I think the rights have shifted-- Sayles may have them himself now.

The Buddy Holly Story in  a decent transfer would be great. The old DVD was pretty good but the UK release of this title on Blu ray was just awful .. the DVD outshone it in every respect; totally unviewable with its fuzziness, bad colour and general dullness.. I got rid of it as soon as I could and stuck to the DVD

The Eddy Duchin Story: The DVD has a splendid soundtrack. A Twilight Time music only soundtrack would be irresistable.
 
Gunman's Walk: a strangely unknown Western with the ever-dependable Van Heflin.
 
This Angry Age (aka The Sea Wall): a forgotten movie with both Silvana Mangano and Jo Van Fleet, two of the most formidable screen actresses!
 
Barabbas: One of the four great "epics", this stands alongside Ben Hur, El Cid and Spartacus and cries out for a high definition release. 
 
Lord Jim: massively underrated, visually superb, and made by several David Lean alumni, this would look wonderful in high definition.

StrawberryRoan-1948-Columbia-six.jpg

 

Perhaps Twilight Time could consider releasing Gene Autry's Strawberry Roan (Columbia, 1948) on blu-ray. This innocuous and charming musical was filmed in antique Cinecolor. Columbia restored it for Image DVD release, so there is a hi-def transfer, and it looks lovely as does Autry's only other color musical The Big Sombrero (1948). The entire Gene Autry series is now out of print. But only Strawberry Roan is selling for whacko prices, the demand for it is so great. Check it out:

Remains of the Day, since Sony appears uncommitted to it in the US.
