I always seem to have trouble actually getting on the chat.

Here are some movies I would love Warner to release or consider. Post the ones you wish to ask for in the chat.

I regularly send Warner e-mails asking for these films as well, hopefully they can get released someday.

A new 16:9 remaster of the First Deadly Sin

A Henry Fonda set with : The Rounders, Welcome to Hard Times, The Mad Miss Manton, Sex and the Single Girl, and the Best Man

A Chevy Chase boxset with new Widescreen versions of Caddyshack II, Nothing but Trouble, Funny Farm, and Spies Like Us, and The Three Amigos

A Steve Martin 16:9 double feature of My Blue Heaven and the Man with Two Brains

A remastered 16:9 widescreen two-pack of the Grumpy Old Men Films

A 16:9 remaster of My Fellow Americans

A 16:9 Remaster SE of Tango & Cash

a 16:9 REMASTER of Frantic

A 16:9 Remaster of Guilty by Suspicion

A 16:9 Re,aster of Doc Hollywood

A 16:9 remaster of In Country

A 16:9 remaster of Forver Young

and a 16:9 remasters of Police Academy 4 & 5

Having a widescreen tv, it looks really bad watching a cropped film blown up to fit the tv. It would look better if these were in their proper ratio.

There are more I would like released, but they can only do so much in such little time.

We can hope that if we all agree and post the same titles, Warner might see that they are wanted.

An 2-disc SE of Beetlejuice would be great, and one of Mars Attacks! too while we're at it.
16:9 enhanced Special Editions of both Barry Lyndon and Lolita, they were left out of the previous newly remastered boxset. That's a shame, because they're both wonderful movies. Plus some documentaries, because I can't believe those movies don't have anything interesting to say. The controversy surrounding Lolita, and the technical breakthroughs on Barry Lyndon, for instance.

I also agree with Mark about a Henry Fonda set. The release of the titles he listed are way overdue. Particularly, in my opinion, Sex and the Single Girl. With a cast consisting of Henry Fonda, Lauren Bacall, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood, I am completely shocked that Warner has ignored a DVD release so far.

I'd ask about Magnificent Ambersons also, only because of Warner's comment during the 2007 chat about having found "good elements" of the film for an expected 2008 DVD release.

I second many of Mr. Pytel's choices. The 'Grumpy Old Men' films are a MUST. I'd also like to own a widescreen version of "Caddyshack II". Xbox Live has a widescreen version for download, so it's out there. The 2 'Police Academy' films being open matte are the reason I haven't purchased the box set. I'd love for them to fix those. "My Fellow Americans" needs a widescreen release. Saw it on TV a few weeks back and forgot how hysterical that one is. An anamorphic "Tango & Cash" would be damn nice, as well as a Collector's Edition of "Beetlejuice".

Thanks. And I would also like to mention a re-issue of Little Shop Of Horrors, with the original ending intact. The first dvd had this ending, but it was only in black and white, and several sound and music effects were missing. It was pulled out of the market by David Geffen, who hadn't authorized it. Then, apparantly, it was pulled because Geffen wanted to re-release LSoH theatrically with the original ending, for it's 20th anniversary (that was in 2006). Later there were plans of a new dvd release (aside from the second one) with the ending intact. And that's when we stopped hearing from it.

Concert DVDs: Neil Young - Weld, Unplugged, and The Complex Sessions
Bela Fleck & the Flecktones - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo
If there was a video for Paul Simon - The Concert in the Park, then would appreciate that as well.

TV Show: Max Headroom

Film: Made in Heaven

Beetlejuice and Mars Attacks Special Editions would be great!
A special edition of An American President would be nice, but at least getting Neil Young Weld and Unplugged out would be fantastic.

I would ask them on any plans to release anything that is unreleased in their possession for Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy and Clark Gable. I would also ask if their were any plans to release their best selling Gary Cooper title Sergeant York in Blu-Ray or Friendly Persuastion.

From what Mr. Epstein has posted in the past, Warner has been invited to do a chat but has not responded. My opinion is that it does not appear that such an event is in the cards this year.

Rather than posting yet another wish list thread I would suggest that writing letters to Warner Home Video would be much more effective in making your wishes known.

Warner Home Video
4000 Warner Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91522

Yes, it will cost $.42 to mail a letter but these letters carry a lot more weight with the studios than random internet postings.

There was a Laser disc of that concert that came out in late 1991, about 5 months after the actual show

I would have two questions.

Where the heck are the Dark Shadows movies? In last year's chat they said they were coming but over a year later, We're still waiting.

Also I would like to see what the reaction would be to releasing the Man From UNCLE movie set in Region 1. I suspect it would get a very uninterested reaction.
