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...
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...
Fresh OCN scans, please. WAC-like treatment desired.

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...
PLEASE Warner Archive -- keep spoiling us with these beautiful Technicolor remasters -- we're buying!
(psst -- Please consider repossessing/remastering Budd Boetticher/Randolph Scott's 7 Men from Now -- Thanks)
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.
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...
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...
My dearest friend passed away 12/20/2020 from complications associated with ovarian cancer.
These two songs remind me of her.
We Have All the Time in the World / Louis Armstrong
Into the West / Annie Lenox
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...
I thought of the snappers as more ecological alternatives to my sea of plastic cases. As The Buggles sang years ago, we are living in The Plastic Age. My 40ish son looks at my video collections and shakes his head ...
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...
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...
