    CLASSIC Biblical Trifecta Miklos Rozsa which score is the best? No 4K for Ben Hur?

    Three of my favorite films. I’d love to have new releases with more supplements

    Press Release BREAKING NEWS: Paramount Pictures Launches "Paramount Presents" Label

    I know I’m one of the few but I’ve been waiting on Dead Man On Campus for years. I can retire my old OOP non anamorphic mess of a DVD. It’s the last of my college years films to make it. I’m real happy Paramount seems to be going full steam with their bluray releases again.

    Status of George Stevens' "The Greatest Story Ever Told"

    Very interesting information here. I revisited again this past Easter, I guess it along with Ten Commandments has become a bit of a tradition for me.

    Film Detective - Hercules and the Captive women (1961) - 4/13/2021

    I received my copy today. I noticed a few places where the film cuts abruptly to the next scene and the film tilts a little brown in some places but it still looks remarkably good all things considered. It’s not reference quality but it looks nice to my untrained eye. I’d be happy to have other...

    Kino Lorber Insider (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    I’ve never seen this before but it looks too awesome to not buy it.

    Film Detective - Hercules and the Captive women (1961) - 4/13/2021

    I'm mainly buying it because I just dont really see us getting anything better in the future. These peplum films are severely underrepresented as a genre for the bluray market. I still have most on one of those 50 films on DVD sets just because of their non availability.

    Pre-Order Half-Baked (1998) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I’m pretty sure this will be a good seller for KL. The DVD was showing its age big time.

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    Slightly OT, but are there other significant, or at least fairly popular, films where the roadshow version is no longer extant, or in quality enough condition compared with the version that is readily available for a proper bluray release? I'm curious.

    Pre-Order Smokey and the Bandit (1977) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I was still in diapers when this came out but thankfully knowing I was a car crazy kid my parents took me to see part 2 at the drive in theater appropriately enough. I’m pretty sure I had all my Matchbox cars with me. Dad still regrets buying a LeMans station wagon in 1979 instead of that black...

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    Whomever the Time magazine reviewer was back then had obviously never been to the Texas Hill Country, Guadalupe mountains or Big Bend... haha

    Another one to add to my Cooper collection. Kino really has it out for me.

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    No, I wish we had had more time but we were only in San Antonio for a day and a half and I had really wanted to go see the Missions. We went to Mission San Juan and to Mission Espada. Next time I'll try to fit in the IMAX film. There was a special exhibit at the Alamo to see Phil Collins' (yes...

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    I just watched the extended version on laserdisc the other day. I actually prefer it to the shorter cut. The documentary at the end of the laserdisc was very interesting as well. It'd be nice to have this on bluray or DVD even if the additional footage is compromised image wise. I've been on a...
