Upside as a company they are celebrating their 90th Anniversary; the downside is that they are a far cry away from what was once the glory of Hollywood’s golden age. And while honestly we know that the classic MGM film library is in the hands of other distributers, there are still other films that they have control of. Various titles from UA that haven’t seen an HD release, or for that fact a proper HD release (The Greatest Story Ever Told)
This collection of collections is more than likely going to be re-releases of titles previously released, I can see the awards winner one containing possibly In the heat of the Night, but that is because it is already scheduled for release. And I understand the business model, as it is an easy way to repackage everything.
I personally would like to see something different, and yes I know that very few of these titles are MGM, more MGM/UA holdings but here goes new set ideas. Take into consideration that I have omitted some titles that I think Shout/Scream, Criterion and Twilight might have in the works.
The Pink Panther (Blake Edwards) set including the one that Universal has (and dear lord leave the Steve Martin films out of it) and all original Cartoons.
MGM Film Noir Set Volume 1: Woman in the Window, Kansas City Confidential, The Stranger (I know 2 of the titles are now PD, but MGM has or should have the negative and could produce definitive versions). Much like WB’s gangster set it would be a must buy.
The Black Stallion: Deluxe Edition, CCBB and Fiddler on the Roof amount of effort into this presentation.
And while not film The Outer Limits (Original Series) this set needs the same effort as was done for TZ.
just an idea, but if its all a repackage, lost of people will pass, considering they probably have already purchased most of it.
