    Stellaluna (7/20)
    Saved

    Walking Tall (8/3)
    The Woods (8/10)
    Angel of Death
    Dorm Daze
    Luther
    Unspeakable
    Whore (8/17)
    Clownhouse
    Swamp Thing
    The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler
    The Apple
    Chastity
    Electra Glide in Blue
    Good Times, Joyride
    Roller Boogie
    Small Circle of Friends
    Smile
    Zachariah (8/24)

    Finally, just to give you a taste of titles coming this fall, anyone interested in The Manchurian Candidate or The Martian Chronicles mini-series?

    The bold titles are those I am most interested in. Great to see that Electra Glide has finally be given an official DVD release - I almost bought the Japanese non-anamorphic Laserdisc-port a few weeks ago!

    Well, according to the Digital Bits on their main page, Take the Money & Run is going to be pan & scan. [​IMG]

    I highly doubt this is everything for those months, there will probably be a lot more.

    I wonder if MGM will fix the audio goof in The Night Stalker. For those who don't know about this, in the scene at the pool Kolchak gets paged for a telephone call. When Anchor Bay remastered the film, the page gets droppped, so you're left with him suddenly looking up, and then going to answer the phone!

    Is this the Woody Allen Take The Money & Run? I have an 1999 Anchor Bay disc of this. It has a 1.66:1 (non-anamorphic) OAR presentation. Is this disc out of print?

    Yes, it's out of print. It was licensed to Anchor Bay from Disney/ABC. It had a 1.66:1 non-anamorphic transfer and a fullframe transfer.

    Apparently the same old fullframe transfer is now being licensed to MGM.

    don't blame MGM... blame Disney!

    MGM could have had the sense to not license a MAR transfer...

    Does anyone know what this reissue of The Swamp Thing will have over MGM's initial release?

    Will the same transfer be ported over and was this originally released anamorphic?

    Same with Artisan's The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler double feature... any ideas?

    Wow, THE APPLE on DVD!!!! Anyone remember this? Very bizarre musical from the early 80's. It has only been released once on VHS by Paragon in the early 80's. Been out of print since then and very expensive on Ebay.

    Roller Boogie.

    yeah, knowing MGM, i fully expected to see it sometime.
    a guilty pleasure for me.
    Smile (if its OAR) will be an easy purchase too.

    other than that, not a whole lot on the list i can see.
    i still have the original AB Night Stalker and it looks fantastic.
    MGM can only screw it up, imo.

    Where the hell is Dangerous Game?
    You'd think they'd want to tie it in with Madonna's world tour this summer. *sigh* I'd love to get rid of that last laserdisc.

    And I'm also still wondering whatever happened to the "Raging Bull" Special Edition ? I wonder if MGM will try to tie it in with the other Scorsese flicks that WB plan for the fall

    I can't even begin to describe how excited I am about Electra Glide in Blue! Please let this be in its OAR (2.35:1), otherwise I'll have to pass, even though I absolutely love this movie.
