    Columbia/Sony releasing several Classic Westerns on 4/5/05

    Good news: SEVEN MEN FROM NOW is due later this year from Paramount, who recently made a deal with the John Wayne estate to release all of the films from Wayne's production company.

    Midnite Movies going OOP?

    Yes, it seems that Best Buy is now the exclusive location for the entire Midnight Movies line. I believe that all the titles are available at both the stores and at Best Buy.com.

    Soderbergh fans: his directorial debut coming out on DVD!

    Apparently it will also include an early Soderberg short film, too. What, no commentary?

    Danish DVD Sites?

    By the way, I feel I should mention that I eventually went with laserdisken.dk and found it to be an excellent service. Highly recommended, as is the Danish DVD for TERKEL IN TROUBLE.

    Paramount DVD wants for 2005

    ACE IN THE HOLE reguarly tops the various lists of "Not on Home Video/DVD" and I'm sure Paramount is aware of the demand. I can't help but feel that there's something else that's holding this title back like bad elements or legal entanglements. Someone at Paramount could at least update the DVD...

    Where is "Hard Target"?

    Just a rumor, I think. John Woo has been quoted as saying that the experience of making HARD TARGET and dealing with clueless Universal execs, the MPAA and Jean-Claude Van Damme is a still a pretty painful memory and one he isn't looking to revisit. But hey, never say never, right?

    DRACULA 1979 on 10/19

    Yes and no. That practice began around the mid to late 80s. Prior to that, trailers were not usually produced as far in advance as they are today. The standard trailer would show up in theaters about a month before the release date, so many of the post-production elements of a film (score...

    "Shaun of the Dead" DVD – coming December 21!

    At a Fangoria-sponsored screening of SHAUN back in August, director Edgar Wright told the crowd that the U.S. DVD will have a few "U.S. only" extras. He didn't elaborate other than to say that some of the foul language used in the commentary that was bleeped out on the U.K. disc (where the film...

    DRACULA 1979 on 10/19

    Universal's decision to remove theatrical trailers from their reissues really irks me. Don't these major studios understand that the audience really like trailers? OK, well I like trailers. But I know I'm not alone in that!

    Danish DVD Sites?

    I'm looking to order TERKEL IN TROUBLE, the hilarious Danish CGI comedy, but I can't find any online Danish DVD retailers. Can anyone recommend any?

    Wim Wenders: Until The End OF The World Directors Cut DVD in US??!

    It's my understanding that Anchor Bay was preparing the release of Wender's complete UTEOTW until Warner Brothers (who released the cut version theatrically in the U.S.)stepped in and claimed the rights to the complete version. So at least it's coming from Warners at some point, just hard to say...

    Is the longer version of the Adventures of Milo and Otis available?

    There was a Region 3 release from Hong Kong that I found in a store in NYC's Chinatown. Never picked it up, don't know if it's wide or has subs, but it's out there. And just to answer another question, MILO & OTIS was 1.85:1. I was working in a movie theater when it was released and it was...

    Universal - another Monster Legacy Collection/Set soon????

    Not to mention MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE and ISLAND OF LOST SOULS and the countless number of sci-fi classics of the 1950s. Universal has barely scratched the surface of what's in their vaults.

    Eating Raoul in April...from Columbia?

    Thing about that cover art - it's the original theatrical artwork. Columbia almost never does that! I'm happy, I'll buy it.
