    Criterion Press Release: Essential Fellini (Blu-ray)

    I have somewhere a now-useless VHS of 8 1/2 with the English soundtrack, and while I'll never not prefer the Italian, the fun thing about that English track is hearing the background dialogue in English. I'd enjoy having that as an option.

    Sometime in the 1990s, I believe, Book of the Month Club had a separate club for first edition reproductions. The books were exact replicas of the first edition of classic books. I picked up Raintree County back then. The only thing they missed was the tree on the front cover as in the previous...

    Warner Archive Press Release: The Opposite Sex (1956) (Blu-ray)

    This one is worth watching just for the jaw-dropping banana number.

    Will we ever see LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR on blu?

    Indeed. I'm not telling anyone to look at amazon.es, but if you were to do so you might see such a dvd release.

    Pre-Order The Trouble With Angels (1966) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Oh boy! I watch this movie every Christmas and will be very happy to upgrade from the DVD.

    Will we ever see LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR on blu?

    TCM used to run the film once or twice a year, but it's been over a year now since they last showed it. Given all of the films with complicated soundtrack rights issues that have managed to get settled for dvd/blu-ray, I have trouble believing that's the one issue holding this one back. There...

    International SHINING THROUGH (Wie Ein Licht)

    A review elsewhere has pointed out that, with this being a German disc, the German dialogue is not subtitled in English, which makes perfect sense. I'll hold off for just a bit, in the hopes that US or UK will get a release. The HD master exists, after all... And I second the recommendation of...

    International SHINING THROUGH (Wie Ein Licht)

    A favorite guilty pleasure of mine. I expect I'll pick this one up if the reviews are good.

    Obscure/Rare film you'd like that will never see the light of day?

    This one's available on DVD from Arrow in the UK. There is apparently no high definition master for this title, at least not so far.

    Valley Girl (1983) (Blu-ray) coming from Shout Factory

    This is a seriously good '80s teen film and a terrific slice of the exact place and time in which it was filmed.

    Criterion Wish Listing 2018

    Looking for Mr. Goodbar Rome 11:00 The Mystery of Oberwald. Not that I'm expecting any of these.

    Will we ever see LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR on blu?

    The ID cable channel ran an interesting dramatized documentary about the actual murder on a show called "A Crime to Remember," in an episode titled "Last Night Stand." https://www.investigationdiscovery.com/tv-shows/a-crime-to-remember/full-episodes/last-night-stand . Would make a nice extra.

    Will we ever see LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR on blu?

    A couple of years ago, one of our moderators confirmed that this title is now owned by Warners (At Paramount Today: Here is what I found out), which I would expect to be a good thing. Plenty of films with limited appeal and complicated (and packed) soundtracks have managed to find their way into...

    Blu-ray Review mother! Blu-ray Review

    Definitely a love-it-or-hate-it film. I loved it, expecting a horror film but, minute by minute, was increasingly surprised by what the film had in store. This is a must-buy for me.

    I didn't find out about the Sweet Sugar release until it was sold out, so I'm psyched that I'll be able to get a copy soon.

    Phantasm Collection on blu-ray coming

    I'm enough of a fan to have bought the laserdisc with the soundtrack cd and the old UK dvd box set that came in a silver (plastic) sphere that I preordered, hoping for a good price dip at Amazon between now and release date. They're not art, but I sure do enjoy them.

    Ah. Well, that was quick. :(

    At Paramount Today: Here is what I found out

    I somehow missed this thread when it was active. Regarding Looking For Mr Goodbar, if Warner owns it now, I'd think we stand a better chance of seeing a release than if had stayed in Paramount's hands. People regularly speculate that music rights have up held a dvd release up but do we know...

    The Old Dark House (1932) 4K restoration coming from Cohen

    This should be quite a revelation, as Kino's dvd, from what I understand, was sourced from 16mm. I hadn't realized better elements even existed, so what great news!
