    Any Joan Armatrading fans here? Question

    This is probably a long shot, but.... There was a Joan Armatrading 2 cd set released a couple of years ago called "Love and Affection: Classics." Anyone here have it by any chance? I noticed tonight that a song called "What Do The Boys Dream?" is listed on this compilation. I'd be happy to...

    RENT (the musical)

    OK, I have to admit that, except for the few months when Spike Lee was attached to direct, I wasn't keen on seeing "RENT" adapted for the big screen. The trailer has me hoping that maybe it will work as a movie after all. RENT trailer

    Music celebs in the upcoming Cole Porter biopic

    Billboard has an item about some of the musicians who are going to contribute to the soundtrack of the musical flick (in production now, and starring Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd). What's news to me is that these music celebs (Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Sheryl Crow, etc) will be IN the film...

    Sweeney Todd deluxe edition in 2004?

    This reliable site lists "Sweeney Todd" as in the works from Warners for next year, with "bonuses to be announced". Upcoming Releases - Talkin' Broadway I hope this comes to be; I can finally retire my beat-up vhs of this one.

    8 Women - which version?

    I recently rented the bare bones "8 Women" R1 disc but I'm looking to buy one of the editions from R2. Apparently there are two, one with two discs and one with four! I've been able to get an idea of what is on the 4 disc edition but I'm wondering - can anyone can tell me how it compares to the...

    Broadway Theatre Archive titles - recommendations wanted

    Does anyone here, with an interest in these dvds (mostly of plays that were taped for telecast), have an opinion about which ones stand above the rest in terms of content? I'm finding that after the initial pressings some of the titles have become scarce and I want to make sure I pick up the...

    Question about Star 80

    Has an OAR presentation of Star 80, Bob Fosse's film about Dorothy Stratton and Paul Snider, ever been released, anywhere, on any home format? I haven't been able to track down information on the LD release, nor have I found a disc in another region that might be OAR. Long shot, but even if a...

    Ed Sullivan's Rock and Roll Classics

    This made my day! Ed Sullivan Rock and Roll Classics This looks like a treasure trove to me - The Doors, Ike & Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, James Brown, The Mamas and Papas, The Rolling Stones, The Supremes, and on and on. I'm tempted to get the whole 12 disc set (plus the bonus disc) in...

    Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom

    I remembered it being a cut above the usual made-for-cable fare about ten years ago. As it turns out, it's even funnier and more cynical than I remembered, with a revelatory performance by Holly Hunter that, in my humble opinion, is her career best. The disc was just recently released by HBO...

    What happened to The Indian Runner?

    It was scheduled to street many weeks ago but didn't, and I'd like to know what's up. Is it postponed? Cancelled? I notice it's getting released on disc in the UK next month, but I'd wait for a US release if I could be sure one was coming soon.

    Breathless & Masculin-Feminin

    Does anyone have an opinion on the different releases of Godard's "Breathless"? Also, might anyone know if Godard's "Masculin-Feminin" (released in Japan) has English subs?

    Is there a list somewhere of p&s only titles?

    I'm looking for a list of titles released non-OAR in R1. Does a resource like this exist anywhere?

    FOX: 3 Women

    "3 Women" is one of Robert Altman's best films, and it has never received a release on home video in any format. Of the five Altman films that Fox controls that have yet to reach dvd, "3 Women" is the one that appears to be the most requested on this forum and elsewhere on the Web. With director...

    Impromptu: no sale!

    Okay, it's not a great movie, but I like most of "Impromptu" anyway and I think Judy Davis and Hugh Grant are tops in it. I've wanted to have this on dvd, hoping only for the basics - a good anamorphic transfer and good sound. First, I read at dvdfile that the disc is one of seven...

    Where are the Bjork dvds?

    DVDFile reported, on October 31st, that Warner was releasing three Bjork dvds in mid-November: Bjork: Live at Shepherd's Bush, Bjork: Live In Cambridge and Bjork: Unplugged. I can't find them anywhere. I've checked all the usual places, including having the local mom-and-pop call their...
