    Pre-Order Repeat Performance (1947) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    This movie is wild. Has been very high on my "holy grail Blu ray" list. I saw this years ago and I couldn't quite believe it was the goody-goody Joan Leslie of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and endless other Warner Bros ingenue roles. I highly recommend this to B-noir fans hungry for an...

    The Raging Tide at last 💪. Tho not top tier noir... Conte and Winters are great in it, and it has been very hard to find. Have been very happy with the quality of these Kino noir sets.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ Mary Stevens, M.D. – in Blu-ray

    I was pretty blown away by the picture quality of this one ... and by that certain plot twist 3/4 in ! I'd love to see Busby Berkeley's Gold Diggers of 1933 ...and the wild pre-code Wonder Bar (also with Kay Francis) in an extraordinary presentation like this.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Naked Spur – in Blu-ray (1 Viewer)

    Blind purchase for me. Have heard so many good things about this film over the years... excited to finally watch it. Tho to be honest ....Technicolor Anything from Warner Archive ... I'll likely buy it no matter what the film is. (is Technicolor addiction a thing?)

    Pre-Order It's A Gift (1934) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I stand behind my belief that blind Mr Merkle swinging his cane around and busting through the glass door of W C Fields' store is the funniest thing Ive ever seen in my life. ("ya got that door closed again!...") Very excited to get this.

    Pre-Order The Woody Allen Collection (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Citizen Kane (1941) (4k UHD) (Blu-ray)

    I'm into the "K". I think you could show that K to any film buff and they would immediately know what film that font is for.

    Press Release USHE Press Release: Universal Classic Monsters Icons of Horror Collection (4k UHD)

    this and the announcement of The Red Shoes and Citizen Kane from Criterion are enough to get me to upgrade to 4k at long last. Seeing classic movies in gorgeous picture and sound quality is one of life's great pleasures.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Kentucky Kernels -- in Blu-ray

    Another interesting credit : written by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby... who wrote the Marx’s “Duck Soup” and “Horse Feathers”. I’ll definitely support this release. This is kinda thing I used to play hooky from work to go see at places like the Film Forum. Only reparatory theaters right now are...

    Rita Hayworth - Ultimate Collection from Mill Creek - 11/17/2020

    Tho not included here, the 3D Blu ray version of “Miss Sadie Thompson” from Twilight was wonderful ... we were really startled by the “rain storm in your living room” effect that occurred ...and Hayworth was MUCH better in that role than I had been led to believe. Im excited to get the rest of...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Million Dollar Mermaid – in Blu-ray

    This is great news. Ive always longed to see what those two Busby Berkeley numbers look like in their full Technicolor glory (or at least as close a we can currently get). The movie itself is ok...but it really comes roaring to life during those two sequences. (There's a good episode about...

    Warner Archive Press Release: Million Dollar Mermaid (1952) (Blu-ray)

    Exciting! For years this movie has looked like it was ridden hard and put away wet. Seeing it in its true technicolor beauty will be a real treat. Definite purchase for me.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ 100 Men and a Girl – in Blu-ray

    Gotta place my order for this. Durbin was my late grandmothers favorite actress. She said all the girls in Catholic school were obsessed with her. They'd sing "Ave Maria" in church and pretend to be her. Ha. Im still holding out hope for her film noir CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY to get a release in...

    Blu-ray Review Song of Norway Blu-ray Review

    It’s bad in a “Lost Horizon” (1973) way as opposed to a “Valley of The Dolls” way. “Fascinatingly ill-advised” would be my take What stuck out for me was an animated sequence with giants coming over the mountain that is completely out of nowhere and kind of disturbing.

    Pre-Order Film Noir: The Dark Side of Cinema III (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Day one purchase for me. Been wanting “The Sleeping City” forever. Richard Conte is one my favorite noir actors. Hoping for possible release of another Universal noir of his that is MIA: “Under The Gun”.

    Has Criterion upgraded the Blu-ray of CHILDREN OF PARADISE?

    I watched by Blu ray again yesterday, here in the lengthy, ongoing Quarantine Film Festival. Yes...I saw the restoration comparison...I agree...the restored version is free from any scratches or dirt whatsoever...as a "clean up" it is extraordinary. No question. But honestly the grain...

    Watched last night via HD projector...am so happy with this presentation. Transfer, package, supplements...the works. Even the graphics on the physical blu ray disc itself are beautiful. I was reminded how incredibly lucky we are to have access to films like this, which were missing from...

    Pre-Order Paramount Pictures Presents: Flashdance (1983) (Blu-ray)

    My experience in straight bars is absolutely minimal.... but I confess I never pictured crowds meeting for after-work beers while cheering on cabaret shows with strobe lights and waterfalls. How long has that been going on?

    Has Criterion upgraded the Blu-ray of CHILDREN OF PARADISE?

    Last night I checked out the version streaming on the Criterion Channel...it is the same weird, detail-free, someone-smeared-Vaseline-on-my-TV-screen look as the blu ray.

    So happy to see that "Image - 5". I do miss my Criterion CAV laserdisc...which had so much supplementary material it took a week to get through it (It had to be thousands of stills on that disc...about the film, the stage production, history of show boats, you name it). I was fortunate to...
