Slightly off topic but... Olive is having a BOGO sale at Deep Discount right now. Puts most titles around $10...
Deep Discount is up to its customer unfriendly practices again. I placed an order for eight Olive titles which were listed as backordered. Okay, at $10 apiece figure I can wait. Yesterday Deep Discount e-mailed me that the backordered portion of my order was cancelled because the titles were "unavailable." So I check at Deep Discount this evening, and five of the eight titles are listed as in stock, a day after they supposedly were unavailable! So I ordered them again, and added another title that I had my eye on.
You know, I may very well double dip these both someday, but I REALLY hope they have some "unreleased in blu-ray" titles up their sleeve. There is such an embarrassing lack of new classic releases out there. How about a BD of DeMille's The Buccaneer, since they only put it out in DVD? Just something new, for Christ's sake.
With this new Olive Signature series derived from 4K restorations of films that they previously released on Blu-ray
(and, yes, I am re-buying "High Noon" even though I thought their previous Blu-ray looked pretty darn good),
I would love for them to find the original materials for the 1956 "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" --
That old slapped on so-called "SuperScope" 2.00-to-1 aspect ratio is such bull,
if Olive could pull off getting an upgrade of that film from more original materials
giving it to us in the aspect ratio for which it was originally photographed (1.85 and not 2.00 as it was released),
I will re-buy that film again as well.
A "Signature Collection" or any modern release with any color subtitles -- Wrong!
