Honestly, there was nothing on the list that I feel I need to upgrade from BD to UHD. I did fill out the form, though, and added my suggestion to also release the films individually in the comments section. I let them know I did not purchase Volume One because I only wanted a couple of those titles.

Some curious ones there like The Karate Kid: Part II and So I Married an Axe Murderer. Both great films but didn't expect either of them to be part of a commemorative set. Of the more contemporary films, I think Ghost Rider is the one that would benefit the most from the 4K treatment (some great special effects in that one) and I don't think the other two I mentioned are likely to be released in 4K under different circumstances so those are my three.

I haven't seen any of the films from the first list so I can't vote on that one.

I am surprised "1776" is not on that list.

Sony issued the same poll a year ago and "1776" was on it.

Either they dropped plans to release it, or release plans are in the works so they did not include it.

It is available 4k digital, but it is the shorter version.

I don't even have a 4K player and I know we need Krull on it. :cool:
And Cover Girl for the boxset, of course:

Fright Night, OTOH, I voted for on the solo titles because it's the one that Sony bought back after discovering certain titles were literally selling out within hours on Twilight Time. To go the full 4K circle would just be ramming the Rise of the Disk Underground down their throats.
And Godspell, because they've been marketing the heck out of the Columbia musicals (Oliver, Funny Girl/Lady, On a Clear Day), and it would be nice to get those back into the mix with the usual Fifth Element/Spiderman 3/Resident Evil suspects we always see when Sony creates a new hardware format.

Now, if they'd had the Harryhausen Sinbads on the list...Or was that last year?

I think there are PLENTY of titles worthy of UHD releases. Any Frank Capra, From Here to Eternity, Anatomy of A Murder
Even 2012, Fright Night, Night of the Living Dead could benefit from it...
I do like that they did include various genres.
They could do a UHD set for Frank Capra titles , a Sci-Fi horror UHD set, etc as opposed to mixing it up..

I wonder what condition the elements of "Cover Girl" are in. The Twilight Time blu ray was only fair as I
recall. Have better elements been found or have digital restoration tools improved since that release ?
There is also the UK Masters of Cinema blu ray of the film which was better reviewed than the Twilight Time release.
