    A Million Ways to Die in the West (Blu-ray Combo) Available for Preorder

    Well, now I feel bad about buying the soundtrack album on iTunes just prior to the theatrical release. If I had known a deluxe edition was coming, I would've happily waited. Still, the current album has been getting a lot of play on both my iPod and iPhone.Still, very much looking forward to the...

    A Million Ways to Die in the West (Blu-ray Combo) Available for Preorder

    The deleted material is of the most interest to me here. There were a number of snippets that didn't make the final film that made it into the trailer (Most of the material involving the doctor was removed, probably because test audiences couldn't handle all of the bloodshed), and also the...

    Blu-Ray Catalog Titles -- Still going strong

    Believe it or not, Stay Tuned was released on DVD way back in May of 2000. While it looks to have gone out of print, there is a pretty big influx of used copies throughout the internet that can be had for less than $10. I don't believe a Blu-Ray is in the works, but at least on DVD, the film is...

    PARAMOUNT--Are you ever going to release these films on bluray?

    I'll add one in: BUGSY MALONE.I don't know if this is part of Warner Bros./Paramount's pact, but this is one I would buy in an instant. I saw it on CINEMOI less than a month before DirectTV kicked it off their airwaves, and it looked like a new HD master (I even managed to DVR it exactly two...

    Blu-ray Review Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (Unrated Rich Mahogany Edition) Blu-ray Review

    The answer to that question is simple: If you want the theatrical version and the Wake Up Ron Burgandy film in addition to the Unrated cut, you'll want this set. The other BD was just the Unrated cut. I've had this set since it was issued as a Best Buy Exclusive three years ago and I can tell...

    Criterion ready to release IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

    I've been watching this thread from the sidelines, and I've loved all the bickering and the hints. It's been like watching a living sequel of the movie come to life. At the same time, this has been a long time coming, and since I'm kind of on the stage of being broke, I am more than happy to be...

    Tell us what you will be doing when HTF is offline during our move and win some classic Blu-rays!

    I'll actually be out of town in California during the turn-over, and since I'll have very little access to the Internet, I'll be spending my free time with family and friends that I wish I saw more of. It'll be a nice change of pace. I return from my vacation on the 18th, but I look forward to...

    Heaven's Gate WILL be coming from Criterion this year

    Not sure if this might be the release of the year, but if nothing else, it finally shows that it is getting the treatment it deserves on home video. While I wish that the terrific Final Cut documentary was here, this was obviously Cimino's supervised version, and he probably wanted it nowhere...

    Is Criterion working on a blu-ray of Heaven's Gate?

    Surprised no one has mentioned it yet (Unless of course if I missed it), but Heaven's Gate will play in a restored version at the Venice Film Festival. I think the rumors of a Criterion edition are closer than ever if you ask me.

    Pirate Radio (aka The Boat That Rocked) - The new film from Richard Curtis - November 13th

    Saw it last night and thought it was awesome. They got the American version right for the most part. Like the UK cut, this is the most fun you'll have at the movies this year. It doesn't matter which cut you watch. It will satisfy your craving for fun.
