    Kino-Lorber Insider Announcement Thread (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    Took my wife of 7 years to see Marathon Man when it first came out. I thought it was great, but she was never a Hoffman fan and hated it. I'll have to buy this one, and like my hundreds of silent films, only watch when she leaves the house for a few hours.

    In late 2020, my wife and I sold our house of 20 years and downsized to a smaller apartment. Married 50+ years, we had accumulated tons of stuff and only had 2 months to clear everything out. Along with boxes of other stuff, we probably gave Goodwill 200+ BD, DVD, CD and old LPs. Much to my...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    I still remember seeing the film on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, in the summer of 1964, after I graduated high school. I was a fan of early Beatles music, and still enjoy the film and soundtrack CD. I was never a fan of Pepper and beyond.

    When I first saw JOHNNY..., I got excited for a second hoping it was Johnny Stecchino. Depp, not so excited.

    Although I've never heard of it, any silent film with a Mont Alto score is a must buy for me.

    Never heard of it, but with Lorre, Veidt and the man who wrote The Wolf Man involved, it's a must buy for me. On top of that, the release date is on my birthday. Must be an omen.

    A great series, especially season 2 with the smallpox outbreak. My wife and I wish it had continued.

    I have the old Cecil B DeMille DVD Collection, and Four Frightened People was one of 2 pre-codes in that set. I've been enjoying some DeMille silents lately. I'll have to revisit the DVDs to see which are worth upgrading.

    Location of King Kong 1933 Original negative, Foreign lavender and M&E tracks

    I found my Kong blu, which I hadn't watched in 10 years, and compared portions to the 2-disc dvd in tin case (not steelbook. JoshZ is right. I have UK silent films in Steelbook and should know). So after comparing the scenes from when Kong takes Wray, until after the T-Rex fight, here's what I...

    Location of King Kong 1933 Original negative, Foreign lavender and M&E tracks

    I'll have to dig that one out and rewatch. As I remember, I think the imperfections and handprints to move Kong were just too distracting on the blu.

    Location of King Kong 1933 Original negative, Foreign lavender and M&E tracks

    I have loved the 1933 King Kong movie since seeing it as a kid in the 1950s. My wife and I saw the 1976 movie in a theater and hated it. After liking what Jackson did with LOTR, I looked forward to his 2005 Kong. I hated it, and haven't watched a Jackson or Kong movie since. Besides having The...

    The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and Underdog original cartoons

    I grew up watching Crusader Rabbit. As crudely drawn as it was, that was my favorite.

    KOLCHAK: The Night Stalker Complete Series COMING SOON to Blu Ray

    My wife and I watched it when it was first on and loved it. I also remember them having to tone down the violence after episode 4 or so. I especially remember the werewolf episode. I was disappointed when the reruns were shown, as the reruns for the first few episodes would freeze the picture...

    I hope the Kolchak's aren't the edited versions. If I remember correctly there were a lot of complaints about the violence after the first 3 or 4 episodes and scenes were edited out for the reruns.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I'm done with Kino. I have a bunch of Kino dvd silents I wanted to upgrade to Blu. I ordered the Lang silent Blu set last spring and 1 of the 12 discs wouldn't play in my 2 blu players. I called and they were very pleasant and said another set would be sent out with instructions to mail the old...

    I like Widmark, but I don't remember this one. I keep hoping for a bluray of his tv movie BLACKOUT (1985), one of the creepiest movies my wife and I have ever seen on tv. I have an old bootleg, but my wife refuses to ever watch it again.

    I finally treated myself to Fritz Lang: The Silent Films set. I couldn't pass up the sale price even though I already had the six major films on individual Kino blu-ray or old dvds.

    Never use facebook, so hope I didn't miss-read, but it looks like The Day of the Dolphin (1973) was the Saturday announcement. Saw it in the theater with my wife on its initial release and we really liked it. I don't think I've seen it since, so it's a purchase for me. A great film to pass along...

    As a kid who watched serials after school in the 1950s, I really don't remember Captain Marvel. I keep hoping for Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers on blu.

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy a 7 hour subtitled Russian War & Peace. If I can enjoy the 5.5hr BFI Napoleon and the 7hr Les Vampire silent films, the length of this one wouldn't bother me.

    I remember seeing Mantis in grade school one summer and sitting thru 3 showings of it. Back then you could sit thru as many showings of a double bill as you wanted as long as you didn't cause trouble. I did get in trouble for this one, as I was really late for supper & parents weren't happy...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    I am looking forward to My Man Godfrey. The only Chaplin release I might consider is A Woman of Paris. I'm not interested in butchered estate-edited Chaplin films. I rather watch my old Image and bootleg dvds.

    Either I missed the announcement, or it was never announced on this forum, that Kino finally released the documentary "From Caligari To Hitler" on an affordable DVD in January of this year. It's a great documentary on Weimar Cinema that previously was only available on dvd at a cost of several...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    March can't come soon enough, an end to winter and a Joan of Arc blu with Voices of Light. A must buy for me.

    ON THE BEACH is one of my favorite movies of all time. I bought the Kino BLU-RAY as soon as it came out to replace an old copy burned off TCM. My wife says it's too depressing to watch, but one of my daughters, like myself, is hooked and deems it unforgettable.

    Good luck in the future MisterLime. At times you showed the patience of Job, so you should do well. Testing that patience, I have one final question: Does Kino hold the dvd/blu-ray rights to "Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story"?

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    I like Kameradschaft better than Westfront, but I won't buy Kameradschaft unless they restore the original ending. If it's the edited U.S. (TCM) ending, I'm not interested in upgrading. A Rodan blu-ray would be nice to go along with Criterion's Godzilla. I've got Japanese and U.S. Rodan dvd's...

    My wife and I saw it in theater when it first came out. I liked this movie better than the man with no name films. I'm not usually a Bert Lancaster fan, but he was perfect for this one. I always liked Susan (wife of Alex Karras) Clark and Barton Hayward was also great as El Segundo.

    Great news. Some of my favorite silent films. I'm looking forward to it. I already have Destiny and Metropolis on blu-ray but I get to upgrade some dvds to blu-ray and add 4 I haven't seen.

    I remember watching the Outer Limits original airing in high school along with Twilight Zone and Way Out. They were a nice change from cowboys and silly comedies on tv at the time. I'll have to check this one out.
