    UHD Sony needs your input for "Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection Volume 2"

    I would appreciate a more naturally rendered grain structure than what h264 on a BD50 is capable of (David M and WAC comes close to perfection though), regardless if there would be more 'detail' or not in the picture. To me, old grainy movies are the ones most in need of UHD releases, but I'm...

    GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES on Blu-ray - thoughts?

    This is in my top 5 most aggressively filtered titles in my bluray collection. It almost looks like a cartoon. Awful. This should be redone asap without the horrible Lowry filtering. Acceptable for DVD but not BD. They should never had released it on BD in this state.

    While we await the next Warner Archive Announcements...

    I've been requesting this regularly since the advent of the bluray format. Marilyn is not popular anymore. Maybe Olivier+Cardiff would interest Criterion.

    Marilyn Monroe on blu-ray

    I mostly purchase arthouse titles, but this is one of my most wanted titles as well. Marilyn photographed by Jack Cardiff in Technicolor on BD - this should be a top priority for WAC. How's the condition of the surviving elements? My PAL DVD looks good slowed down to 24fps, but I can't watch it...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Let's Make Love -- in Blu-ray

    The Signal One BD was cancelled I wish this was available without revisionist colors and with a balanced grayscale with proper black levels. Was the colorspace shifted on this like so many Fox films on TT?

    While we await the next Warner Archive Announcements...

    For 2020 I'm hoping for anything/everything the have of Elia Kazan, Nicholas Ray, Robert Altman and Marilyn Monroe, plus Baby Face (1933) and Deconstructing Harry (do they have any more Woody?). Jean Harlow films would also be nice.

    Alfred Hitchcock films in 4K??

    This goes for everything shot on celluloid: I would appreciate more naturally rendered film grain than h264 compressed to BD50 is capable of (although the guys at WAC + David Mackenzie does amazing h264 encoding)

    Warner need to start working on their Marilyn Monroe titles asap for quality BD releases! I expected them to be released years ago. Or are there problems with the surviving elements? How about all the Elia Kazan titles still not on BD?

    Favourite foreign films that haven't been released in Blu-ray

    A Masterpiece! The french Potemkine 2-fer BD is amazing. Very film-like with gorgeous grain. The Swedish Njutafilms BD is crap with MPEG2 encoding, but this one also has "La bouche de Jean-Pierre" in HD. Neither has english subtitles, but there are synced online subs available.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Some Like It Hot (Blu-ray)

    I hope Criterion won't apply their awful high-frequency filtering to this one. I don't understand why they always have to filter the audio:unsure:

    LOL definitely a typo. Fixed. I've always appreciated her more as a brilliant acting talent than eye candy.

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is the most ugly looking restoration in my BD collection. It's so heavily filtered that it almost looks like a cartoon. Also, The River of no Return and Bus Stop has a very ugly modernized teal color palette, Niagara looks slightly filtered and Some like it Hot looks...

    The Twilight Time News and Info Thread

    I want all of them, including the complete outtakes from Something's Got to Give (already available on Youtube in extremely low quality). The documentary part of The Final Days is too hard to watch though, so sad. The behind the scenes doc from The Misfits would also be nice. We also need new 4K...
