    Well, so much for the Paramount Marx Bros. movies I guess. Bummer.

    But I'll be getting these for sure anyway:

    Star Trek Generations CE
    I Married a Monster from Outer Space
    The Untouchables CE
    Most of the Jerry Lewis stuff
    Andy Griffith Show - Season 1 (Yes!)
    Last Train from Gun Hill
    Arrowhead
    The Naked Jungle
    Ragtime

    And maybe a few more, possibly. But the Marx Bros. would have made this an awesome release list. I hate rumours!!

    I believe Morgan's Creek is a Universal title.

    Star Trek: Generations CE for September 7? Woohoo! Just in time for my birthday!!! (Although my wife already knows that I want the Star Wars Trilogy for my b-day... heehee!)

    Now if we could only get word on what extra features will be on the new disc. For that matter, will the film's prologue and original ending be released on the disc?

    WOW! Too many titles I want!

    But nothing about Star Trek in season sets. I'm going to pout now. [​IMG]

    As great as this list is, I did have a big thrill of anticipation as I scrolled down it, expecting to see ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS. But there's always next year.

    I'm especially pleased to see Mr. Lewis finally getting his due with the release of ten of his productions released between 1953 and 1965.

    If all goes well with this initial release -- and I can't imagine that they won't sell like hotcakes, we'll hopefully see more in the future and be able to follow Mr. Lewis' progression as his technical filmmaking abilities took hold.

    Many of the technical nuances of modern filmmaking find their earliest uses in Mr. Lewis' work.

    Foul Play! YES! And it looks like Deep Impact will finally get an anamorphic release this year along with Top Gun. Now if only we could get Ghost and the Darkness and Breakdown as CE as well, or at least anamorphic reissues.

    Glad to see Star Trek Generations, but unhappy to have First Contact absent from the list.

    Overall, looks like a very solid year for Paramount releases, although where is their obligitory late august/september big gun release? I think I can live with Happy Days being part of it. There is too much quality product coming this year from them. Thank you Paramount. And also thank you for dropping the price on most of your catalog releases as well, it makes it hard not to go broke when they are released.

    I bet that the Deep Impact Collector's Edition is a tie-in to the DVD release of Day After Tomorrow...

    The Keep! NICE. I talked with Martin at the Nick Meyer signing at the end of January and he said it was up in the air because of Michael Mann. I'm hoping some things have been fixed, but either way, I'm pleased.

    And Deep Impact CE! NICE! I worked for one of the writers when it was being made.

    I'll buy Explorers if it's the theatrical version- the "Special Home Video Version" is actually missing a scene!
    I'll get the Friday the 13th Set only if it includes Part 3 in field-sequential 3-D, which was available in Japan on the defunct VHD format.

    I was hoping for MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK, WE'RE NO ANGELS - 1955, COMPROMISING POSITIONS, FRASIER - SEASON 4, STARTING OVER and ISLANDS IN THE STREAM. I guess it gives me something to look forward to in 2005. Yikes!...2005 already.

    Hell yes!!! Some titles I've been waiting on for a very long time are finally coming!

    I'd basically given up on getting the amazing Testament on DVD any time soon, as I've asked about it several times in the studio feedback section only to be told it wasn't coming. It is one of my top two most wanted titles from Paramount, and color me very surprised and ecstatic to see that its finally coming!

    Orca: The Killer Whale, Fire in the Sky, and Bug are three other gems I've been dying to have on DVD, and there's no doubt that I'll be picking them all up. I will also finally be getting Deep Impact, as I've been holding out for a possible CE. And finally, its great to see The Keep back on the schedule. I was really dismayed when it was delayed last year, and I look forward to finally getting it on DVD along with all these other gems.

    With Paramount, I've pretty much given up on any extras for films that aren't labled CEs, but hopefully these films will all have there trailers at the very least.

    There are still several Paramount titles I'm dying to have such as Phase IV, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Student Bodies, Lady in a Cage, Event Horizon SE, etc., but I am very pleased with this lineup!
