    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Ran -- in 4k UHD

    Dang, I just tried to order a copy from Best Buy, but it was Store Pickup Only--no delivery. Is that a common thing with BB?

    Beautiful work, as always, Fritz. Yes, it is horrifying and baffling why anyone signed off on that awful Photoshop "artwork."

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    So with THE RAVEN, THE COMEDY OF TERRORS, THE TOMB OF LIGEIA, and THE LAST MAN ON EARTH getting recent KL announcements, will the other titles from Shout's Price Collection II be coming soon, too (DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL), I wonder? I omit RETURN OF THE FLY, as it's part of...

    I'm anxiously awaiting my copy--should get here any day now. Curious to know if anyone here has received a copy, and your impressions?

    Criterion Wish Listing 2019

    In the spirit of Equinox, Night of the Living Dead, Carnival of Souls, The Blob, Fiend Without a Face, etc., I would dearly love to see Charles B. Pierce's The Legend of Boggy Creek get a Criterion release. Long available only in crappy cropped bootleg versions, it's currently undergoing a...

    Best theory I've heard is La Vie de Jesus.

    Blu-rays from 35mm print sources?

    There's not much to elaborate on--as I stated in my original post, I was curious. I heard of a film that might be getting a 4K scan from a pristine print, as no pre-print material can be found, and I just wondered if/when that had been done satisfactorily. As always, the knowledgeable folks on...

    Blu-rays from 35mm print sources?

    Hi all, I figured if anyone could answer this, it would be the learned members of the HTF. I'm curious to know what blu-rays are commercially available that were sourced from scans of 35mm prints (as opposed to original negatives, or some intermediate step), and what is your opinion of the...

    Night of the Living Dead (Mill Creek)

    I have seen the Janus Films release currently in release, and it looks & sounds fantastic--there's every reason to think Criterion will distribute it on Blu/DVD next year. And as far as I know, Janus/Criterion are the only ones actually compensating Image Ten (Romero's production company). My...

    Fritz, I can honestly say the first of the two Superman III covers just above is better than the movie itself was. :laugh:

    Borrowing from public library - DVD vs blu-ray

    They might not want all of them for the collection, but the ones they don't want usually get sold (like unneeded book donations), and the proceeds in turn support the library.

    Bonus Features

    My favorite commentaries have been on some of the Kurosawa discs from Criterion. Besides providing the standard context, they often point out the things lost in translation--words or gestures or references that have a very specific meaning to a Japanese audience, but are completely lost on...

    Borrowing from public library - DVD vs blu-ray

    Besides shorter waiting lists for new release blu-rays, they are also more resistant to scratches. So library blu-rays are usually less likely to skip/freeze than DVDs.

    Bonus Features

    It was included in the Meet Joe Black 2-disc "Ultimate Edition" DVD, issued in 2001 (UPC# 025192127625)

    Aha! Thank you, Bruce--that was indeed the case. The first three or four New copies for sale were all third-party, but Amazon.de was listed farther down (at a higher price, natch). When I chose that one, it all went through fine. Many thanks!

    I just tried to purchase it, but it wouldn't accept any of my American ship-to addresses. Message was (translated): "This item can not be sent to the selected address. You can either change the delivery address or to remove this item from your order." Bummer. I love this movie so much, I was...

    An E-mail Appeal to Mr. Wade Williams

    That is the email address given under "Contact Us" on his website, so I think it's fair game.

    Frankenstein: Complete Legacy Collection coming 9/13/16

    Does anyone know if Amazon Canada currently has the Frankenstein and Wolfman Legacy Collections in alternate listings as non imports, priced at $32.89 each? ;) Update: Sorry, when I posted this originally, Tony's post above was displaying his message repeated, like, a hundred times. But now...

    Hell, Fritz, that's not cheating. That's an eye for design and layout, and recognizing great elements. Plus, long, painstaking work. It's not like we thought you actually painted those posters! ;-)

    Do you curate your large blu-ray collection?

    I've found this to be true for me, too. What I usually do is watch the dark/violent/super-scary stuff very early in the month, then when I reach that point, I start to transition to lighter fare: Ghostbusters, Young Frankenstein, 13 Ghosts, The Tingler, etc. This has kept me from thoughts of...

    Blu-Ray/DVD packs

    As a selector for a public library's video collection, I can say we LOVE combo packs! While some of our patrons have upgraded to blu, many still have not. With a combo pack, we can purchase and circulate a single title and please both camps at the same time. If they're split between formats, we...

    Film Noir on Blu-ray...

    He completely reinvented himself, career-wise. Up until Murder, My Sweet, he was a genial crooner in musical comedies. That's why they changed it from the book's original title of Farewell, My Lovely--the studio was afraid people would think it was a musical, since it was starring Dick Powell.

    Pre-90s catalog on Blu - A comprehensive list

    Brandon, my opinion is to do whatever is easiest for you. If it's faster/easier to just list everything Vinegar Syndrome is putting out without having to take the time to determine "is this cult or is this porn (or whatever)," then go for it. But if that's a fast, easy call and leaving them off...

    William Castle On Blu-ray

    Count me in for shelling out a pretty penny on Day One for The Tingler and 13 Ghosts. Shameless plug: the historic movie theater I'm involved with will be showing The Tingler this October...in Percepto! We will have 20-30 seats wired up for the brave souls willing to risk it...
