Anyone care to guess a title or two?
I'm hoping for A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS myself.
Let's see.... The May/June titles were announced on Feb 2nd, so that means we'll probably get the July/August titles announced by end of next week (hopefully).
I would also welcome A Man for All Seasons.
MISSISSIPPI BURNING-----HAWAII-----LOVE AND DEATH
A Man for All Seasons - yes please.
Also, Soldier of Fortune and the Michael Shayne films. These could be a double release like the Thunderbirds films.
My TT hopefuls:
Thank God Its Friday (1978)
Blame It On Rio (1984)
Summer Lovers (1982) - maybe a double release with Blame It On Rio.
Skatetown USA (1979), highly unlikely
Do we know if Buckaroo Banzai is on the table from them?
Hoping for Flight Of the Phoenix.
Mississippi Burning, Play It Again, Sam and Manhattan Murder Mystery please.
I'll keep guessing.
I'd love from the MGM/UA catalog: Women in Love, Witness for the Prosecution, Inherit the Wind, Judgment at Nuremberg, The Music Lovers, Hound of the Baskervilles.
When I started watching blu-ray 4 years ago I had a list of about 150 films I wanted to see that weren't available on blu-ray. Now that list is down to about 10 films, and A Man for All Seasons is still on it.
Others include The Philadelphia Story, Out of the Past, Key Largo, The Big Sleep, The Andromeda Strain, Barefoot in the Park, Mister Roberts, The Remains of the Day and Enchanted April (the last one might not be possible, as I hear it was shot on 16mm film for British Television).
I totally agree with WOMEN IN LOVE, WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION and HOUND OF THE BASKEVILLES (1959).
I would not wish for HAWAII unless it was the roadshow version. I haven't heard that anyone at MGM has worked on it so I hope they pass. I would go with WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION, JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG and THE HALLELUJAH TRAIL.
I still have a favorite that to me is a fun film but most people dislike it and that is the roadshow version of PEPE. I enjoy it with all it's creaks and groans and the cameo population that George Sidney used.
LORD JIM---A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS
Yup, I think Lord Jim is a good guess, seeing as it's being released in France (meaning that Sony have done the HD work).And maybe a couple of United Artist movies: The Vikings & What's New Pussycat. I could list another 12 UA movie I'd like.
No. The only titles we know for sure are coming in the future are:
The Blob (1988) (Presumably Oct. '14)
La Bamba (1987)
Born Yesterday (1950)
Protagonist Pictures (UK films they've started releasing at 1/month, like Fever Pitch and The Firm)
Raining Stones (1993)
Carla's Song (1997)
When the Wind Blows (1986)
Bandit Queen (1994)
A Month in the Country (1987)
We also know that The Man From Laramie is coming this year and we "almost" know that Miss Sadie Thompson will arrive at some point. It has been rumored that Violent Saturday will be offered to Twilight Time too. (I have the French BRD of Violent Saturday and it is superb)
Correct. The Man from Laramie has been officially announced as part of the June lineup, which is why I didn't list it. The others aren't 100% confirmed like the list above. Like the release of Fate Is the Hunter in May, I suspect they'll do blu-ray versions of some of their other DVD titles (like Violent Saturday).
The Man on the Moon and The
The Killer Elite, First Man in the Moon and The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds are also coming.
Interesting. I hadn't seen the official statements on those. Good to know.
