    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Damn Yankees – in Blu-ray

    Yep, it has a psychedelic art design and they overused Pythonesque animation tricks and cut out the rousing dance section of "Shoeless Joe," in its place, battle footage from old silent movies. But it's easy to find on youtube:

    Upcoming slate of 4k releases 2021 (all studios)

    Interested in what they do with Wonka. I always felt the soundtrack was weak. Some of the high end stuff is shrill--the soundtrack can't take properly take strings and woodwinds. But it's always been like that. I think it was released in monaural originally and only remixed to stereo for home...

    TV on DVD news roundup

    Yep, now we can have the whole Stargate canon on blu. I'm still holding out on reviews for SG-1. I was also starting to worry about "Legacies" which a nice show and a worthy follow up to its two parent series. This season is overdue by about 4 or 5 months. Went ahead and pre-ordered it, and it...

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    2021 TV DVD Guesses?

    Likely choices, I think. They're both still popular and both short-lived; shouldn't take too much to get them out on blu if Universal so desires.

    Soap operas

    I used to work on "Days," from what I heard, Corday Productions preserved all the original videotapes since the beginning.

    Is Twilight Time Making A Comeback?

    Little interest in Grind house, Schlock or exploitation films and of course that's what everybody else seems to want these days. Once in a while Kino will put out a really crummy comedy that I saw on HBO a thousand times, and I will buy it. Otherwise, I want the classics, which TT delivered...
