    Pre-Order The Marx Brothers (1929-1933) Universal Singles (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    DUCK SOUP, HORSEFEATHERS & MONKEY BUSINESS to start. THE COCOANUTS has some great moments but it suffers from being a static filming of their hit Broadway musical play. Same with ANIMAL CRACKERS. Another filmed Broadway musical, it gained a cult following because it was unseen for decades due...

    Press Release Press Release: The Puppetoon Movie Volume 3 (Blu-ray)

    I received my copy last week and I have to tell you, I got very emotional seeing how beautiful the transfers were. Some shorts from Volumes 1 & 2 were remastered in this Volume as well. I can unequivocally say that you can see why the restorations took four years.

    What Forgotten Films do you want on Blu ray or 4K?

    I've always wanted to have a Blu-Ray or even DVD of 1970's Cover Me, Babe with Robert Forster, Sondra Locke, Same Waterston and Susanne Benton. Enough time has passed that we won't get Special Features or audio commentary from the first two stars but I'm still hoping. And kill two birds with...

    R.I.P Gilbert Gottfried

    Although everyone remembers him as Iago I always liked his performance as Shock Jock Johnny Crunch in The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.

    Yeah not at all like today with casting the lead in the historical TV series Anne Boleyn :)

    RIP: Howard Hesseman

    He also did movies as well as television. Most memorable was as one of the hippies in the Billy Jack franchise. Not to mention playing Captain Lassard in Police Academy 2

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The Girl Can't Help It (1956) (Blu-ray)

    Actually, the way that they copy off of each other without doing independent research all of them being wrong isn't as far fetched as you think it is.

    Seeing the results of the restoration I'm proud to have been a contributor on Kickstarter. In the episodes I've watched so far the restorations are flawless on Blu Ray.

    Recommend me my next western to watch

    Guns of Will Sonnet If you want tons of violence and mayhem, and if you don't mind the steampunk aspects of later seasons, you can't do better than The Wild, Wild, West especially in B&W

    The Best Disc Commentary?

    If it's a part of the movie it's not commentary. I don't want to go down the philosophical rabbit hole of a character in a movie commenting about the movie inside the movie. Breaking the Fourth Wall isn't "commentary". Commentary has to come from outside whatever is being commented on.

    The Best Disc Commentary?

    I neglected to answer your other question. Leverage aired on TNT from December 7, 2008, to December 25, 2012 for five seasons.

    The Best Disc Commentary?

    Yup, What's Up Tiger Lily? Without running downstairs to check my copy I don't believe it had a commentary. Woody Allen's introduction really doesn't count as 'commentary' because it was edited into the film itself. Like I said, it was an intro and not an optional audio track. On a side note...

    Item: KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER (ABC/1974-1975)

    Although I hadn't planned on it, a combination of all of the previews in this thread as well as a price drop today on Amazon has caused me to purchase the Complete Series Blu Ray.

    Please do. Yeah, the whole "Who played Tekla" is a genuine online mystery. Check out the cast list at Wikipedia. Since you're sharing my feedback allow me to be more complete.

    The Mr Wong set was great but I wanted to let you know that I finally binge watched the first 4 episodes of Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe and I was impressed (that's the word) by how well it had been done. You were absolutely correct. Now if we could just find out who played Radio Officer...

    The Best Disc Commentary?

    I really enjoy the commentary by William Friedkin on his film To Live and Die in LA.
