Twilight Time told me that there is a least 100 Sony projects in the pipeline They said 'maybe '  on some of these ---LORD JIM---A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS---ROBIN AND MARION--FAIL-SAFE. They said 'their lips are sealed'.

100 is a lot. Quite obviously both Sony and Twilight Time are happy with the way this project is expanding. 

 

I hope that Lost Command will be considered. It's a strangely forgotten movie: strangely because it has one hell of a cast, a good story, a competent director and a great cinematographer, Robert Surtees, one of my favorites.

 

I wouldn't have thought Lost Command had any chance of being considered by Twilight Time, but if they are looking at 100 projects, anything is possible.

Just looking at the threads for the last two release waves.

 

January/February releases were announced on the 11th October.

 

March/April announced 27th November.

 

In both cases that's about a three month advanced warning.

 

We should be seeing what's coming in May/June within the next week or two.

 

Here's hoping for Rollerball (1975) and Mississippi Burning.

From Trajan's list I'd have Lord Jim & A Man For All Seasons. That would leave just Tom Jones (1963) as a sixties Oscar winner still awaiting a Blu-ray release. Lord Jim wasn't a success but I liked it, & a good HD transfer of Freddie Young's photography should look stunning (the DVD is very poor).

Found this list of Columbia 3D films on another site. Since Man in the Dark is already released by TT, maybe Fort Ti is next if you go by the release date?

I was looking into the French release of  Sam Pekinpah's The Killer Elite ( 1975 ) when lo and behold - Twilight Time will be releasing it sometime in 2014. It looks like I will have to start saving some money at the rate so many great titles are being announced.

Glad I saw this, almost ordered The Kller Elite from France. Will now wait for TT.


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

I'm totally perplexed that Sony never released A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS on Blu themselves. But, then again, I was pretty perplexed about OLIVER! also. Too bad these wonderful films are not being appreciated the levels they were in the 60's.

Working For Peanuts -- Chip & Dale, Donald Duck cartoon short -- 11 November, 1953 

 

Disney was willing to let Al Michaels  go from ABC to NBC, so that they could get their "Oswald's" back, so I don't see TT releasing this as a Columbia title.

 

But it would be nice to see some of the earlier Fox 3D titles in there as well,  

 

Would Jump all over those Stooges Shorts, but then I want all the Stooges shorts in 1080p

Disney owns Working for Peanuts outright. They re-released it 3D theatrically before Meet the Robinsons, and for home video the 2D version was on the Chronological Donald Vol. 4 DVD. The 3D version is on the very rare 3D Showcase Blu-ray, which I believe was only available through a player promotion. Sent from my VS920 4G using Tapatalk

"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

I remember seeing Working for Peanuts before Meet the Robinsons. Both had kind of boring 3D. Very little if any out-of-the-screen effects and very little depth. Same for Chicken Little.

Yes they did. They also mentioned They Rode Together (1961), Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974), and First Men in the Moon (1964). Alfredo will appear early in 2014 and First Men sometime after The Blob (1988).

They have confirmed First Men in the Moon? That's wonderful! I only just saw it in the last few years (during an exhaustive and fun tour of old sci-fi movies) and it stood out as one of my very favorites. Could Twilight Time release more Nigel Kneale films? Anything such as Quatermass, Night/Curse of the Demon, The Abominable Snowman would be a dream come true for me.
