    The Stanley Kubrick Archives...

    I really don't understand all the fuss about this. First of all, the transfers for the movies you mention have absolutely nothing to do with Pan & Scan, as they are open matte transfers. Second, and more importantly, regardless of what Kubrick wanted, these transfers perfectly reflect the...

    The Stanley Kubrick Archives...

    I have taped an interview with Johanna Ter Steege just after Kubrick died, and (from memory) she said that shooting had already been scheduled, but was delayed by one month for several times, and after about eight months Kubrick canceled the project. He had his eyes on her because of watching...

    2001 Special Edition?

    I remember hearing that two actual cuts of the doc were made: one by Stanley and one by Vivian (which was aired). Regarding 2001, I have some snippets of interview footage of Kubrick at the NY premierre. I'd like to see the full version of this. Anyone remember this footage?

    The Urination Shivers?

    I believe morning wood also "helps" with getting me the pee shivers..... In scientific terms: Morning wood + having to go badly => pee shiver And, for the thread-hijacking shower peeing people: Morning wood + having to go badly + going in the shower = clean toilet floor

    Seven Samurai - 2 Disc Special Edition???

    Yojimbo, and also Sanjuro, are possiblities because the current dvd's of these movies are pretty poor. There's nothing wrong with the fairly recent Ikiru and Rashomon dvd's however, and these will probably not be redone...

    "Picnic at Hanging Rock" (1975) - Wanted in 16x9!

    Gordon, I did order Picnic about two weeks ago at ezydvd, but canceled it because another item (Before Sunset/Sunrise) wouldn't ship. I'll probably get it one of these days.... Heard nothing about The Passenger, but I have to admit I'm not really closely following Dutch dvd news sites. I'll...

    "Picnic at Hanging Rock" (1975) - Wanted in 16x9!

    Fearless is in more need of a nice, shiny new SE. IMO, of course. :) Regarding Picnic at Hanging Rock: I now own the German disc, which is already my fourth dvd version of this great film. I'm still in doubt about getting the Australian disc, but a disc containing the theatrical cut is what's...

    Best Tragic Love Story on DVD

    I actually had that in my response, but decided to delete it. I guess because I felt it wasn't the sort of tragic love story tragic love story lovers love to watch. ;)
