Casablanca and Body Heat would be fine choices for 2 disc Special Editions IMO.
How about MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY with both versions on the two disc set.
How about Chariots of Fire?
Speaking of Superman....How about Superman II? It certainly deserves better than the current crappy disc out there right now. I never purchased it just for that reason and will wait as long as it takes until they get it done right.
I would like Gone With the Wind eventually, but I haven't even watched my MGM version yet that I bought over 2 years ago since I can't seem to set 4 straight hours aside...
Batman seems like another obvious choice.
I would love to see 2 disc Vacation movies, but I don't think they would have enough to warrant another disc and I would gladly take a single disc widescreen release.
I also noticed that on Amazon that Kane and Zhivago will now carry that "Two-disc..." marquee.
Don't I remember reading that WB was toying with including Son of Kong along with the original? That would go a long way to filling out 2 discs. I hope they dig up as much as possible for Kong.
WB owns them. MGM made the 1935 and 1962 versions and I think WB made the 1980's version.
if there is only one disc i could buy next year,it would be adventures of robin hood.if it would be a two disc special edition i would be in heaven.
Remember, I am quite the 80s movie buff, so please don't be surprised at some of my choices (Some already listed in this and other threads, others my own decisions): -"Krush Groove" -"The Hunger" -"Blazing Saddles" -"Body Heat" -"Batman" and "Batman Returns" (Idea for a "Batman Returns" supplement: If there was a music video for the song that Goth rocker Siouxsie Sioux made for the movie, include it, please) -Would there be enough material for a 2-disc SE of "It's Always Fair Weather"? That was a knock-'em-dead-kid musical by Stanley Donen with some of the best widescreen work ever done...an OAR 2-disc of this would be swell. Maybe if matched up with a documentary on Stanley Donen's career... -"Who's That Girl?" (Make the 2-disc set a big Madonna-in-the-80s celebration, with the movie and related features on one disc, and Madonna music videos, promo spots, interviews and 80s "SNL" appearances on the other) -"After Hours" (Screaming for a 2-disc SE like a scared Griffin Dunne on a rainy New York sidewalk) -"Beetlejuice" -"National Lampoon's Vacation" (Hell, OAR reissues of this, and the Christmas and Vegas trips as well would be just fine by me) -"Lethal Weapon" (I wouldn't mind a triple-dip on this title...maybe there's even more stuff that didn't make it in) Sincerely, John "WB is doing better by me" Kilduff
Well, I agree that Goodfellas is just crying for any kind of upgreaded release. I'd love to see Blade Runner get the deluxe treatment. I keep holding off on that one. Each time I see it and hold it, I think to myself, 'the sure way to get a special edition announced is for me to lay down the bucks on this one!!' What I'd also like to see happen to Blade Runner is for it to get a 'Superbit' type release...
It's Always Fair Weather - you don't see that one mentioned alot
good call, John!
I second Forbidden Planet & The Thing from Another World (James Arness)
I hope Warner will do something special (like a 2 disc set) for Orson Welles' The Magnificent Ambersons. There is an endless amount of things they could do with this release. Sadly this film isn't as well known as Kane so it will probably be a while.
There is a Goodfellas S.E. coming in a Martin Scorcese boxset next year.
i'd pay some pretty cash for a loaded edition of 2010: The Year We Make Contact I think its a vastly underrated movie, that while not as good as the original (how could it be?), its still damn good science fiction. I"m sure there are things we could see that would merit a 2 discer.
Another few I've thought of were Yankee Doodle Dandy and Treasure of the Sierra Madre, but I'm not sure there would be enough to warrant a second disc. These are of the few AFI 100 movies left that aren't on DVD yet.
