I wish they’d do just that.At this point I'd even be happy with streaming versions that I could purchase, Josh. If that work has already been done, why not put them out for sale? There are tons of films of this age that are available both for digital purchase and shown on subscription streaming services. It's not like these two movies are making a company like HBO tons of money due to exclusivity.
I really think it’s inertia.
And a little bit of the catch-22 that we often see with Warner Archive’s “perfection or nothing at all” policy. These were big movies when they came out and they’d want a big return for any splashy release, but the lack of a tie-in and the current physical media market make a big, splashy release difficult. But they probably also feel that these titles are too big to just license out or do something small with. So they’re just kinda stuck.
