    Is there a list of the new german WB classic releases and forthcoming titles?

    I am aware that most people aren't satisfied with these as they have problems, but in the case of IVANHOE, are these different than the ones that existed in R1?

    Thanks.

    These have appeared in the last few weeks also here in Switzerland under the banner "Finally on DVD". Even the packaging somehow looks cheap, so I didn't at first even realize that these are actually Warner's DVDs until I read the titles.

    I have looked at some of them in shops and seriously, I wouldn't bother at all. Most of them only have German language sound with no English at all. Also judging by what I have read on some of the German-language forums, these appear to be some sort of old VHS/TV transfers just slapped on DVD.

    I really don't understand what exactly is Warner trying to achieve here with this sort of junk; they are not even a whole lot cheaper that normal Warner classic movie DVDs, such as the Greta Garbo stuff that came out recently.

    Personally, I would stay well clear of these.
