I know I’m one of the few but I’ve been waiting on Dead Man On Campus for years. I can retire my old OOP non anamorphic mess of a DVD. It’s the last of my college years films to make it. I’m real happy Paramount seems to be going full steam with their bluray releases again.
I received my copy today. I noticed a few places where the film cuts abruptly to the next scene and the film tilts a little brown in some places but it still looks remarkably good all things considered. It’s not reference quality but it looks nice to my untrained eye. I’d be happy to have other...
I'm mainly buying it because I just dont really see us getting anything better in the future. These peplum films are severely underrepresented as a genre for the bluray market. I still have most on one of those 50 films on DVD sets just because of their non availability.
Slightly OT, but are there other significant, or at least fairly popular, films where the roadshow version is no longer extant, or in quality enough condition compared with the version that is readily available for a proper bluray release? I'm curious.
I was still in diapers when this came out but thankfully knowing I was a car crazy kid my parents took me to see part 2 at the drive in theater appropriately enough. I’m pretty sure I had all my Matchbox cars with me. Dad still regrets buying a LeMans station wagon in 1979 instead of that black...
No, I wish we had had more time but we were only in San Antonio for a day and a half and I had really wanted to go see the Missions. We went to Mission San Juan and to Mission Espada. Next time I'll try to fit in the IMAX film. There was a special exhibit at the Alamo to see Phil Collins' (yes...
I just watched the extended version on laserdisc the other day. I actually prefer it to the shorter cut. The documentary at the end of the laserdisc was very interesting as well. It'd be nice to have this on bluray or DVD even if the additional footage is compromised image wise.
I've been on a...
I would love a Criterion release of Seven Men From Now. It would fit in with the collection quite well. Lee Marvin was amazing in this film. Along with the beautiful scenery and wonderful direction it is an amazing western.
There is a mummy, but not in the same sense as Hammer’s Mummy or Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb. I don’t want to give any plot points away. Basically the mummy in this film is stationary like a museum piece.

I picked these up. Would have gotten a lot more, but the budget is a little...
Fun film, I believe this was Hestons final on screen appearance as a main character. As an adaption of the original novel its decent and the film does exude some creepiness. The soundtrack is good as well.
Some very nice collections here. I'm isolated to one portion of our built in book cases in our front room. I'd say 90% of the house contains my girls and my wife's stuff while mine is restricted to a minimal part of the space. haha. At least I can access it though unlike my books and old video...
Wish we had gotten a heads up about this but I think I have most of the titles id be interested in that are or will be OOP soon. Looks like I might have to scour B&N stores for Nashville though. I assume Parallax View will stick around for awhile since it was just released.
