    RETREADS YOUR OPINION

    I don't have an opinion about "retreads" because they have nothing to do with me and I've never been one to complain about what is released. If films that don't interest me appear on Blu-ray disc or in 4K iterations, I just ignore it. I've pretty much given up worrying about which films are...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Key Largo -- in Blu-ray

    I just looked this film up on my spreadsheet about my disc collection. I received this disc in March 2016, watched it on the same day . . . and I haven't watched it since! I'm overdue!

    Kino Lorber Insider (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    Perfect timing! Admit it: It was pure chance! You're not that clever to manage it on the day Carl Reiner left us.

    What's on your Daily Viewing List?

    Last night I watched Warner Archive's Blu-ray disc of The Stalking Moon, a movie I've always liked a lot. The film has many detractors and one minor character in it, indeed his entire situation, makes no sense at all. Nevertheless, I think in total this is a marvellous and highly original movie...

    Crawdaddy's "Random Thoughts" about Home Video, Film & TV

    I like both those movies and have them on Sony DVDs. As I said once previously, The Burglar could be "re-imagined" and done again as a "woman's movie" with the story told from her point of view. I'd be interested to see a film like that. I too didn't recognise Martha Vickers in The Burglar.

    One of Lilli Palmer's best films too. She's really good in this.

    While we await the next Warner Archive Announcements...

    The Pirate presented fully up to Warner Archive's usual high standards will be very welcome. I was and still am very disappointed with the DVD.

    What's on your Daily Viewing List?

    Today I watched the Warner Archive Blu-ray disc of Action Of The Tiger. It's no great movie but I enjoyed it, possibly because I was in an undemanding mood! The core story has elements which have become all too familiar, for example a boat owner being asked to smuggle someone in or out of a...

    International BLU-RAY DISCS FROM GERMANY

    I suggest you start with Page 1 of this thread and then progress to threads about discs from France and the U.K.

    CAN-CAN 1960 will probably never be released on Blu-ray

    The fact that Lee Garmes, in an excellent but long-out-of-print book Hollywood Cameramen, said: "The finest thing I ever did on the screen was The Big Fisherman. It was very lovely. Everything in that film was magnificent. The best art director in the business, John De Cuir, did the sets. I shot...

    Crawdaddy's "Random Thoughts" about Home Video, Film & TV

    The picture quality of Twilight Time's Underworld USA is superb. You're in for a treat!

    Because they don't live their lives for your benefit.
