Twilight Time Announces January/February 2014 Releases

Twilight Time BD/DVD Press Release

Best Answer haineshisway, December 20 2013 - 01:03 AM

Actually Exodus was running on MGM HD and it was just stunning, obviously a complete remaster. I think it had the overture, ect. Can't wait for a blu-ray.

Exodus never had an overture.  I saw it the first week it played, at the Wilshire Theater here in LA in 70mm - I thought it was a fantastic movie.  The new HD transfer is yards better than the old DVD, which would not be hard, but it's off 35mm elements and therefore as good as it looks, it would look 1000 times better off the large format elements and in its proper ratio and with sound off the six-track element.

ordered Woody Film ,way over Priced !! would have been a lot better if MGM did it

 

I agree with you. I passed on them though. MGM is celebrating a 90 year anniversary this year, and they're licensing out films that could of boosted their campaign? A Woody Allen Bluray set would of been nice.

True, but the studios love the Twilight Time model because they get all the money upfront regardless of how many copies TT actually sells. So for as much as they could have used Allen titles to boost the 90th Anniversary promotion, they must have felt they'd make more money from the licensing deal.

Since Allen doesn't really care about home video releases, I guess studios can dump some of his films to TT.

When has he ever said that?

 

He was instrumental in ensuring that Manhattan was released in its OAR on home video - one of the first instances of this.

 

He doesn't like extras, as he feels the films should speak for themselves, and he likes his older mono films (all of them up until very recently) left in mono.

 

I don't see how that equates to him not caring.

Does anyone knows what's happening with international shipping?

 

There used to be several options, including faster delivery, secured delivery in case it went missing, etc.

 

Now there's no option, it's just a straight $10.

 

Any idea what's going on?
