    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The French Connection : Filmmakers Signature Series -- in Blu-ray

    I'm thankful for Friedkin's experimentaion here. Thanks to what I learned here of his original process for the first blu-ray version (unable to post a reply on that thread) I've been able to more than satisfactorily save footage I thought was unusable, thus saving time, money and my rep!

    I'd like to see Merchant/Ivory's "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries" get a release period.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Poseidon Adventure -- in Blu-ray

    We went to DisneyLand soon after I saw this film (6-7yo) and I was terrified the Jungle Cruise boat was going to capsize!

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Poseidon Adventure -- in Blu-ray

    This is one of those films that made me want to make films when my Mom took me to the drive-in to see it (c.1972/73). I actually revisited the much maligned "beyond the Poseidon Adventure" last night from Warner Archive: great picture quality, overall fun tho it bogs down a bit at the beginning...

    Win a copy of McLintock!

    My favorite Western with Wayne is "Red River". He's given a great character and he runs with it, the cinematography is gorgeous and the character relationships facsinating and fun.

    Could the original, unaltered STAR WARS be on its way to Blu-ray?

    Even if, God forbid the OCNs are gone; there should be enough prints of the 1977 version to piece together a "restored" new print. The OCNs for Citizen Kane and Double Indemnity are long gone yet look at prints and HD/blu of those films.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Big Country -- in Blu-ray

    It's in fun, I'm also a site "Stunt Coordinator" and while I've coordinated stunts, I've done so as director. I haven't won three real life Oscars either but I'm stoked on my HTF three.

    How did distortion ever get past QC? Bored intern?? And if they're bored by that film they have no business in the business!

    Warner Archive Show Boat : Universal logo chopped off

    I'm pretty sure the Criterion laserdisc had the Universal logo. It's really surprising how neglected this film has been.

    Warner Archive Show Boat : Universal logo chopped off

    While I'm still stoked to have scored a pressed disc of James Whales' Show Baot, my initial joy was diminished when I discovered the vintage Universal logo had been chopped off. Why??????
