    Pre-Order The Silent Enemy (1930) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    The answer is yes because this release is the full length version. The version on Amazon Prime is likely from the abridged, narrated reissue.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu & The Return of Fu Manchu – in Blu-ray

    That is interesting to read because I remember reading the exact opposite - that the Chan films did very well on DVD to the surprise of the Fox executives. If the Chan films had tanked, I don't think we would have gotten the full Fox series. Remember, Fox did pull the chord on further Betty...

    You only get to watch the creations of 5 directors…. Deserted island

    1. Michael Curtiz 2. John Ford 3. Buster Keaton 4. Cecil B. DeMille 5. Someone like Lew Landers, William Beaudine, Charles Lamont, or Charles Barton. Someone who was prolific and solid in directing B movies. It'll give me a lot of content to watch as I'm living out my Gilligan's Island existence.

    An American In Paris 4k Maybe

    My feelings mirror yours - the emphasis should be more on bringing new titles onto blu-ray and not rehashing the war-horses onto 4K. However, I remember what David Shepard said about why he would bring out a new edition of the Lon Chaney version of The Phantom of the Opera every few years - that...

    Blu-ray Review Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) Blu-ray Review

    I've been perusing some period trade journals (thanks to the Media History Digital Library), and based upon what I've been reading, audiences who saw the film in its initial few weeks of release may have seen a longer version. Harrison's Reports reviewed the film at 127 minutes, and some...

    I might as well list a few off of the top of my head in no particular order: Beau James (1957) Margie (1946) Bernadine (1957) Goodbye Charlie (1966) The Midnight Hour (1985) Comprehensive collections of the Disney catalog of cartoon shorts (1920s - 1960s) Paramount on Parade (1930) The Jolson...

    The Official Disney Movie Club Blu-ray Exclusives Thread

    If you bide your time, most DMC titles can be acquired from ebay for around the twenty to thirty dollar mark. Clearly still more than what you'd pay through the club, but if you want to avoid the hassle of the featured title non-sense, then the premium may be worth it. I've been mulling over...

    Press Release Edge of Darkness (Warner Archive Collection) (1943) (Blu-ray)

    I'd also like to see WAC start upgrading the titles from the second Flynn collection since disc rot ruined my entire set.

    Douglas Fairbanks Adventure Classics Missing on Blu-ray?

    I think Biograph will also be releasing a double feature of two of Fairbanks' pre-swashbucklers - Double Trouble and Mr. Fix-It. Cohen has also done some restoration work on a few Fairbanks titles like Robin Hood and perhaps The Iron Mask. Have there been any rumblings about those or any other...

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Sheik (1921) – in Blu-ray

    The score was actually done in the early 1990s for Paramount's VHS release. I've heard parts of the score, and it sounds funky for a lack of a better term. It's definitely nothing remotely traditional, but I'll give it a fair hearing once I receive the disc.

    Every time I turn on ___show "X"___, it's always ___episode "Y"___, which I really dislike.

    The Opie the Birdman episode from The Andy Griffith Show.

    Disney Movie Club Exclusive 11/02/2021 Make Mine Music and Melody Time coming to Blu-Ray

    Make Mine Music has played uncut on official Disney platforms within the last decade. Around 2014 or so, my cable company had a "Disney Movies on Demand" section, and for a time I can confirm that Make Mine Music played with the Martins and Coys segment intact. On the other forum, people are...

    The COVID Vaccination Thread

    Since I got my J&J shot about six months ago, I'll simply walk into my local pharmacy next week and take a booster of whatever is available (assuming that Walensky signs off on the FDA and CDC recommendations).

    Bugs Bunny 80th Anniversary Collection (Blu-ray)

    For the funko haters (which includes me), this is an opportunity to purchase this collection at a price that financially negates the plastic beanie-baby wannabe junk. I would be jumping on it if I hadn't purchased the set myself a few days ago. This set was a part of Amazon's "get three for the...

    Attention Deanna Durbin fans: That Certain Age (1938), Mad About Music (1938) and Nice Girl? (1941) are coming to Blu-ray!

    Just got an email alert that Bullmoose is preparing to ship Something in the Wind. That just leaves the Woody Woodpecker collection to be shipped.

    Attention Deanna Durbin fans: That Certain Age (1938), Mad About Music (1938) and Nice Girl? (1941) are coming to Blu-ray!

    I just got a notice from Bullmoose saying that Because of Him and For the Love of Mary are being prepared to shipped.

    Attention Deanna Durbin fans: That Certain Age (1938), Mad About Music (1938) and Nice Girl? (1941) are coming to Blu-ray!

    FWIW - Bullmoose has just charged me for one of the titles. It could be for one of the four Durbin titles or the Woody Woodpecker collection.

    Pre-Order Santa Fe Trail (Warner Archive Collection) (1940) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    That's possible. For instance, the appeal of All About Eve still eludes me even after several attempts to give the film a fair hearing. It just doesn't appeal to me. That said, I've only seen the Rocky Mountain once, and that was well over ten years so a second viewing would be appropriate...

    Pre-Order Santa Fe Trail (Warner Archive Collection) (1940) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I really need to re-watch Rocky Mountain as I came away from my viewing of it thinking it to be the only WB Flynn clunker. Perhaps there's something in it that I missed.

    Attention Deanna Durbin fans: That Certain Age (1938), Mad About Music (1938) and Nice Girl? (1941) are coming to Blu-ray!

    Bullmoose just added the Durbin titles for $19.97 each. I just pre-ordered the four titles plus the Woody Woodpecker collection and Mad About Music. Quick question since this is my first order with this firm - if the pre-order prices go down, will I be charged the lower price or the price at the...

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Criterion's first 4k UHD releases

    I'd be surprised as well since, if The Silence of the Lambs indicates anything, Criterion may not have as many 4K licenses as one may imagine.
