You confirmed the information by saying you were picking up some of Twilight Times leavings, so it's true.

 

When did I confirm this?

 

You said it, you said you picked up Twilight Time releases they declined due to quality issues, go back and read some of your posts where you say it, it's not a lie and i still haven't received an answer to my query regarding these new HD masters KIno is creating, that question is on page 15.  I'm sure many readers want to know the answer to this question.

Now that's a classic that has never been available in anamorphic DVD. It's releases like that that make it difficult not to buy from Kino.

Well, it looks like some members have disregarded my warnings.  Now, we're onto the next step.  Posts have been deleted and other disciplinary action has taken place.

Please tell me where I said this. Our deal has nothing to do with the TT deal, all I said was that we acquired an incredible package with great HD masters and most of it was from the same pool TT and Shout were cherry picking from. None of these masters were turned down by anyone, MGM has very high standards when it comes to their HD masters. Kino Lorber is also working with MGM to create new HD masters for 8 of the films from this package, all of these 8 films will be newly remastered and available for the first time in HD.

Look lets get something straight, i am not a Twilight Time fan, nor am i a Kino fan, nor am i any studio's fan, i talk for myself only, look at post 248 and it looks to me like you were saying you took titles that Twilight Time turned down, that's the way i read it, i also have read from Twilight Time in this very thread saying they did turn down some of these releases, so which is it. ?

 

I take it then when you talk about re-mastering some of these titles for HD you actually mean you are spending money on new film scans, that incidentally is all i really wanted to know, a simple yes or no would suffice here.

Can you tell us which ones are getting this treatment?

Looks like I'll be directing most of my hard earned cash toward Kino.  ELMER GANTRY is a wonderful surprise and if MARTY is clean with good grain and little or no DNR, I'm in.  Really, only one BD I own is so dreadful that I can't even look at it and that is SPARTACUS.  Criterion and TT have been just plain boring for a person of my tastes lately, not so at all with the delightful stuff coming from Kino.

So, may I respectfully ask this question: You are saying that no title in the Kino package from MGM was turned down by Twilight Time?

I'm not really sure of the point of this discussion / line of questioning....but I'm going to respectfully surmise that only Twilight Time and MGM definitively know if TT turned down a transfer from MGM, which Kino ultimately licensed from MGM.  Who's to say that Kino has not licensed an MGM title or 2 or 3, which TT or Shout had hoped to license from the studio in the future?  ;)

Collectors should be happy with the news that Criterion, Twilight Time, Shout! Factory, and Kino Lorber have between them licensed a considerable quantity of classic films from the vaults of MGM/UA. We're sure that each of the companies have titles that the others would like and vice versa - that's just the name of the game, and the luck of the draw.

 

Speaking only for Twilight Time (who have close to 100 films from the MGM/UA catalogue), we are very happy with what we have and hope the aficionados will be too as these classics become available in the coming months and years.

Well said!


"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

That's the most sensible thing I've read on any of the various home theater / HD physical media forums of late.

Is Elmer Gantry a new master?  I ask this since the sound on the version that's been on TCM is horrible-the main title in particular...And since the score is quite good by Andre Previn is it in stereo by chance?

Looking at the numbers game, TT has ~100, Kino has ~70 (at least), Criterion has released ~25 (with more on the way), and Shout has released/announced ~65 (with more to come). So, that's an abundance of the catalog out or coming to Blu-ray from MGM/UA (at least 260 total).

Ha, so who, who, has The Vikings? Time will tell, but I hope it's you, as your Blu's are multi-region.
