    I was just taking a look through TDB's Upcoming Cover Art, and I was amazed by the 'hidden classics' being offered by MGM on 12/3.
    Where's Poppa? - Beloved cult comedy with Ruth Gordon and George Segal. I haven't seen it in years, so this will be a great opportunity for a re-visit.
    State of Grace - Before hanging out at HTF, I thought I was the only one who loved this overlooked Phil Joanou (Three O'Clock High, U2: Rattle and Hum) flick. Gary Oldman, Ed Harris, Sean Penn, Robin Wright, John Turturro, and John C. Reilly star in a VERY cool modern mob flick that takes place in Hell's Kitchen, NY. Plus it's got Burgess Meredith.
    Miami Blues - George Armitage's (Grosse Pointe Blank) refreshingly cool and off-kilter cop flick. Alec Baldwin, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Fred Ward star. Nasty violence, dark humor, slick dialogue.
    Dead of Winter - Mary Steenburgen and Roddy McDowall star in this basically forgotten mystery from 1987. Astutely directed by the celebrated Arthur Penn (Bonnie & Clyde, Little Big Man) and featuring more than a few crazy twists, this is one for the Agatha Christie crowd. (Personally I can't wait to see this one again!)
    Rush - Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh star in this stark and intense cop flick. The pair play undercover narcotics agents who end up a bit too reliant on the hardcore drugs that surround them. Sam Elliot, Bill Sadler, and Greg Allman fill the background nicely.
    I realize that MGM is known for shoveling out LOTS of product, but I for one am thrilled to see this latest batch!
    I'm not saying that these are necessarily obscure movies, but they're 'off the beaten path' titles that I'm looking forward to.
    MGM folks, good job on your title choices this time around!

    You left out the stunning "Blue Steel."

    Also, is MGM releasing "24 Hour Party People" on 12/03? That's what I heard about a month ago, but no updates since.

    Hm, the only one there that gets me excited is the Korda Thief of Bagdad.
