    Doctor Who

    I don't know Ncuti Gatwa -- I trust RTD picked an excellent actor and I hope Gatwa gets good material to work with. BBC's brought back RTD, ok, but how about bringing back Murray Gold? I miss his main title and his orchestral/choral scoring which gave us a sense of adventure and excitement...

    Barabbas HELP !!!!!!!!!

    There are new 70mm prints of LORD JIM? When did this happen? I first saw BARABBAS in grade school when I projected a 16mm print for school viewing. The only thing I recall was being impressed by the opening scenes. The rest, not so much. Sixty years later, I may have changed my mind. I'd hve to...

    Help Me With Name of this Movie?

    Maybe we could continue this thread. Others may have the same issue. I've been trying to come up with the name of a film I saw in the early 60s. Name That Film #2. It was a B&W film, maybe widescreen. The protagonist is a young, maybe teenage, girl. As the film opens, she's running through a...

    THE CARDINAL - 1963

    The Cardinal star (remarkable Moross score) -- Tom Tryon -- also starred in Disney's little comedy Moon Pilot. I would love to see Preminger's BIG film restored on Blu-ray or 4K.

    Public Service Announcement: Why you should wash "minor" cat scratch wounds right away

    Cellulitis is nasty stuff -- if left unchecked it can kill you. Early common symptoms include swollen reddish skin and a fever -- that's just starters. My partner's been through this. You do not want to go there. It can easily be treated early on with a regimen of prescribed antibiotics. And if...

    Where is Warner Archive?

    Warner Archive sets an eviable standard in Blu-ray releases. My order arrived last week. Just watched my copy of The Harvey Girls last night and must say it looks and sound brilliant! Thank you WA!

    Watched this last night for the first time on Blu-ray -- very impressive! A non-war war film. Totally character driven. Stellar performance by Cagney. Very high image quality.

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    Pre-Order Krakatoa East Of Java (1969) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I loved Cinerama. My first experience was back in high school days when we all marched over to the RKO Cinerama Theater in beautiful downtown Columbus, Ohio, to a special screening of The Wonderful Word of the Brothers Grimm in its jaw-dropping, three-strip, surround sound glory. The last I saw...

    Pre-Order Hellfighters (1968) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I'll say this for Mill Creek -- they have a better cover graphic than the Universal release. I've never seen the film but Wayne, at the very least, is entertaining. (No comments about The Conqueror, thank you.) (Now, someone, please -- bring on Circus World, which I haven't seen since its...

    The last 3D movie you would choose if you couldn’t watch them anymore.

    The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet -- Brilliant film! I've a host of others I love to watch (see also: The Taking of Tiger Mountain) but Spivet is an immersive and delightful choice and haven't seen it listed above. I love my LG OLED passive 3D set and will scan the local Craigslist for a...

    Where is The Man With The Golden Arm (1955)?

    Great cast. Sad story. Well told. Didn't know this was available on Blu-ray. And classic Saul Bass opening credits. There should be an Oscar category for opening credit sequences.

    Oh no! I don't have many Warner snapper cases left

    Universal lays off restoration unit?

    I always wondered why the Sony/Boetticher DVD set was marketed without prominanently citing Randolph Scott's name on the very muted, somber cover. When I bought that DVD set, I had no idea who Boetticher was but did know I was looking for Scott films and chanced on that set. I wonder how many...

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

    Wayne's THE ALAMO remains in limbo with the original large format elements fading away. As for the rest of your list, you are crowned -- make it happen. I haven't seen a decent print of EMPIRE since its roadshow release -- most impressive on the big screen at the Hunt's Cinestage in Columbus...
