    If they can somehow wrangle it from a seemingly uninterested MGM via Fox, Heaven's Gate would be a dream release.

    Will Criterion's Director's Signature LD of PRINCE OF TIDES ever see the light of day? I recall some bad feelings between Streisand and Criterion during it's initial release. Unfortunate, because there were many extras not available anywhere else.

    I too, would love to see a release of Baron Von Muchhausen.

    Also: More Polanski!



    And I would kill for a Criterion release of Night Of The Hunter or any of the early Kubricks, especially Paths Of Glory.

    One movie I'd like to see Criterion take on is Taking Off - an early Milos Forman movie that I saw at the Edinburgh Film Festival last month.

    I noticed that Kicking and Screaming was licensed from Lionsgate to Criterion... first title they've licensed from them!

    Perhaps this bodes well for the Hallmark and Republic stuff? I'd love to see Criterion issue something like "The Complete Laurel & Hardy Shorts" all restored and remastered. From the Republic catalog, they could have the clout to have The Quiet Man properly remastered. Maybe even some serials!

    I'm also excited about the possibility of Criterion getting a hold on some MGM films from Fox. This could mean Rebecca, Spellbound, Notorious, and Straw Dogs could go back in print. Plus, all those other Hitchcock films via Carlton and StudioCanal.

    How about the 1940 version of "Our Town" - it deserves a quality DVD issue and the Aaron Copland soundtrack deserves to be heard (unlike existing pd issues). I don't know for sure how "It's a Wonderful Life" was re-copyrighted, but it seems like the Copland and Wilder estates (even if Thornton didn't like the movie) should have some rights to enforce, and Criterion should do it.

    And speaking of Wilder... I'd also kill for a Criterion release of The Apartment, which deserves a reissue however you look at it.

    My most-wanted Criterions:

    Munchausen
    Jackson's Heavenly Creatures
    Cronenberg's Crash
    Polanski's Macbeth
    Todd Hayne's Velvet Goldmine

    And not to de-rail this thread, but where did the news come from about a new DVD of Coppola's Dracula with a new cut? News to me. Exciting news. I have Criterion's old laser of this title (in fact, it's the film that made me want a laserdisc player in the first place).

    Since I've been a Hitchcock kick as of late...

    Vertigo (with a new audio commentary and cleaned up mono and six-track mixes)
    Psycho - both versions
    Sabotage - they did it on laser...

    Oh and:

    Fantastic Mr. Fox (Being Wes Anderson this is inevitable so why not include the 70's version too)
    A remastered UNCUT Kwaidan
    The Quiet Man (since Lionsgate is now on board)

    There is a really nice uncut, R2/UK, NTSC disc of this available. Supposed to leave the Criterion in the dust. See DVD Beaver.

    Don't count on it. At best this project has been put on the backburner (if not completely abandoned) and even if it ever gets made it's a Sony production which equals no Criterion anyway (that's why there's no Criterion "Bottle Rocket").

    Since I don't have it yet, Dazed and Confused is sitting on top of my list followed by Seven Samurai and Brazil.

    Don't look now (Nicolas Roeg's film)
    I'd love to see them release this as they did with The Man who fell to earth.

    Zulu (Michael Caine) (i know MGM has it but you can dream)
    Release it as a 2-disc edition ala Criterion.

    Cheers
    Maggi
