    Press Release USHE Press Release: The Secret Garden (Blu-ray)

    I'd have preferred the 1993 edition.

    Pre-Order Barefoot In The Park (1967) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I enjoy BAREFOOT. Jane Fonda was gorgeous in her role, but it's really Mildred Natwick's movie, as short as her part is.

    Press Release PHE Press Release: Popeye (1980) (Blu-ray)

    This was one of only two collaborations between the Disney Studios and Paramount. The other is DRAGONSLAYER, and I surely hope a great transfer of that is in preparation, ideally with a lot of bonus features such as commentary by the director and some of the effects people. As for POPEYE, I...

    My 2 cents worth on "Brothers Grimm"

    I assume, since Mr. Strohmaier is involved, and wants to premiere this at the Cinerama Dome, that it will be in the Smilebox format, similar to HTWWW? This is great news...alongside THE ALAMO, GRIMM was certainly the big large-format film we all wanted most to see and for years it looked like...

    Peculiar problem with the ALIEN COVENANT Blu-ray.

    The menu in my player gives me three options: Play, Set-Up, and Search. In none of them do I find access to the commentary or any of the little documentaries that are supposed to be on the disc. In my computer, all of these features appear and can be played. Are all these features secret Easter...

    Unfortunately, the untimely death of Roy Kinnear (Planchette) severely hobbles the film. For the second half, Lester had to use back-to-the-camera stand-ins and a bunch of other tricks to fill in, but his timing was off, and the pacing was just not a up that that of the much earlier (1974-5)...

    I don't recall, but I liked the movie.

    Intriguing idea. Reminds of the rumored Hitchcock remark that he'd love to film a movie in which we see a car on an assembly line from bare frame to completed vehicle, in which a body is found on the other end.

    My 2 cents worth on "Brothers Grimm"

    I thought at first this thread was about THE BROTHERS GRIMM, the Terry Gilliam film, which is an utter disaster (and I really like Gilliam, generally). You might want to correct your thread header, if possible.

    How is this relevant to the OP? I thought I was starting a thread about ORDINARY PEOPLE, an International release...
