    I posted this a few months back and am just curious if our MGM lurkers (you out there Alan?) have any clue as to these two titles (one Orion, one Gramercy/Polygram). The full-frame Miami Blues LD is definitely one to replace. Both are great, underrated crime movies and would make a hell of a triple bill with State of Grace.

    I would love to see both of these films on DVD, especially Miami Blues, which stars my favorite actress Jennifer Jason Leigh. The laser I own is very hard to watch being full frame & suffering some laser rot but Jennifer makes it hard for me not to watch it.

    I'm always befuddled at how MGM picks their catalog titles. I would think that both of these -- and the aforementioned State of Grace -- would be decent sellers. The Romeo Is Bleeding LD looks pretty good but I'm afraid that it might rot (a Sony DADC pressing-- damn them all to hell!), but Miami Blues might as well be an old video for as fuzzy and washed-out as it is. Great performances in all of them-- Fred Ward (who also produced) has a career high point in Miami Blues.
