    Don't Look Up (2021)

    I can't accept the premise that only they would know (or is it a government conspiracy). But it's free so can give it 10 minutes to see if it grabs me.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    It's going to be interesting to see how the remake does at the box office and how many awards it picks up (expect huge pressure to try and ensure it does well). Although the score is universally loved, I don't think the 1961 film is, unlike say Ben-Hur (1959). In any event it's best experienced...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ A Clockwork Orange -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I've never liked it. Barry Lyndon is second for me, and much worthier of a UHD release.

    Warner Archive Announcements Thread

    I use importcds mostly and DD occasionally. Both offer good service to the UK, both add VAT which is better than previously when Royal Mail wouldn't deliver until the customs charge (VAT) had been paid and charged an extra fee for the privilege. I gave up on Amazon.com years ago.

    Pre-Order Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Will wait for reviews but will probably stick with the blu ray, a rather dull looking film. However it's a great film to watch (particularly for the first time) and the reason it doesn't take so many repeat viewings as the 1956 film for me is because of the ending. A truly great pay off.

    Old Henry (2021)

    Sorry your thread hasn't gained any traction.I liked the trailer, the film has an old fashioned feel to it, definitely one for me.

    The Persuaders!

    Me too, an important show of my youth. A great title sequence and theme - that man Barry again.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Received Rififi in Paris today (speedy work from importcds). A very enjoyable but somewhat underpowered film, however it's highly recommended for fans of Jean Gabin and Nadja Tiller. Also features Gert (let's have a little fun with Mr Goldfinger) Frobe, and George Raft. Thanks as always to KL...

    James Bond in 4K UHD

    Currently watching Licence to Kill, great blu ray. Lazenby and Dalton are the only two Bonds whose entire output I want on 4k disc!

    Pre-Order The Woody Allen Collection (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    The Curse of the Jade Scorpion might be his least favourite movie but I think it's his best. Wonderful cast, script, and period detail. Plus some great jazz (Wilbur de Paris).

    Dune (October 22, 2021)

    The parallel with this film for me is John Carter, Disney cancelled plans for a sequel (Gods of Mars).

    Dune (October 22, 2021)

    Even if a second film isn't made there would still be an opportunity to follow up with a television series, will be interesting to see how The Foundation fares.

    Dune (October 22, 2021)

    The studio should have 'greenlit' the second film already to help interest in Dune. Unfortunately it's a dull book with no strong characters, there are far better books from science fiction's golden era to film. Probably be like The Golden Compass (great film) that wasn't followed up by a sequel.
