    "Cujo" to be released fullscreen.......AGAIN

    It's been released widescreen in Europe, thru Paramount. I guess Lionsgate might use the same elements.

    Cropping, why?

    Cropping is an issue all right. But windowboxing is no solution.

    John Carpenter's movies who should get a SE for R1

    Actually I wouldn't recommend the French releases for those movies. Many more extras are available, but transfers don't look so good to me. They live : French R2 disc is heavily cropped : see comparison here. Vampires : French R2 disc's color palette looks off to me : see comparison here...

    Black Christmas (1974) - Think we'll get a 16x9 release this December?

    I wonder what aspect ratio it will be... The R2 UK disc was in 1.78:1 but looked overmatted to me. I hope it will be "true" anamorphic 1.66:1. Here's a comparison I made from existing discs.

    About the Vampires comparison, I don't agree at all with Nicholas Sheffo. I've seen the movie in theater, when it came out in France, and it looked exactly as the R1 releases. As far as I know, the use of color filters was intentional and was discussed a lot when the movie came out in 1998.

    Repulsion and Yesterday Today and Tomorrow DVD

    Well I trust you about the Criterion LD, but the picture still looks misframed to me (cropped on bottom). ;)

    Repulsion and Yesterday Today and Tomorrow DVD

    Anchor Bay UK disc is around 1.78:1 and looks a little over-matted to me. I assume the film was shot for 1.66:1 presentation. Here's a comparison between the ugly French R2 release and the UK disc :

    The films of Samuel Fuller

    Yes, we do need more Samuel Fuller. And yes, White Dog should already be out, as it is the best film AGAINST racism ever.

    any plans for Lee Marvin's "Point Blank" on DVD?

    I do hope Warner is working on this title. I'm not sure a HD master already exists, though. The last broadcast on TCM France, a few months ago, didn't look good at all...

    Possible Warner director boxes for 2005

    Count me in for some Fritz Lang, Anthony Mann and Nicholas Ray boxsets ! :) I would add Robert Aldrich too : - The Legend of Lylah Clare (MGM) - The Angry Hills (MGM ?) - Whatever Happened to Baby Jane S.E. (WB) - The Dirty Dozen S.E. (MGM) with accurate aspect ratio (NOT 2.20:1 as the...

    Well I don't know if they plan to, but they should ! And I'm pretty sure they own I shot Jesse James as I've taped it on TCM France (which only broadcasts Warner catalog titles).

    Too bad you didn't include the usual "subtitles sample" shot for The Day the Earth Stood Still, Gary. I heard the R2 subs are presented on a black background, just like on R2 releases of The Night of the Hunter and 12 Angry Men. Nice comparison anyway. :)

    Dirty Dozen... MGM or Warners??

    Then it looks like Warner Europe have matted a 35mm copy for this release... Because burnt-in english subs (for german-speaking sequences) are getting off the frame.
