    This is not a request. But, I am curious to the process of which movies get selected to be on dvd and what happens after. Do you sit down in groups and go over picks of the group or is it done differently? I look forward to your answer, as I think it would help the membership realize what actually goes on behind the scenes
    Thanks!!

    It's not a big secret, it's just a confluence of lots of different things. Eventually it does come down to occasional meetings to discuss the long range schedule. In the getting to that point there are many ways that titles pop up on lists, including filmmakers approaching us, new acquisition deals, personal favorites, reports on the state of original materials, seasonal reasons (e.g. a football package at Superbowl), to coincide with a theatrical release (e.g. the Croc Dundees), fan requests, and so on. The smaller the title, the less likely it is to make the schedule. And just because I put fan requests at the end doesn't mean we don't take them seriously.

    Well, my hat goes off to Universal for taking their time on the BTTF triology. Doing it once, doing it right. I really want to see those Eric Stoltz scenes, so I could wait forever. In the meantime, commentaries should be recorded, ASAP.
