Why is one random Muppet movie with Sony rather than Disney?
I absolutely love The Holy Grail, but come on. Does anyone really think that this low budget film will benefit from being in 4K? It's always looked rough due to its low budget. Heck, it had such a low budget that the Pythons couldn't even afford to use real horses!I suggested in the notes: Adventures of Tintin, Black Book, Das Boot, China Syndrome, Midnight Express, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Woman in Black.
I concur. The Blu-ray releases have not been satisfactory, considering it was an Oscar-winner and a delightful family musical.Why wasn't "Oliver !" a choice ? I wrote it in the comments section....Seems more worthy of a 4K release than many of the other titles listed
It's not just one.Why is one random Muppet movie with Sony rather than Disney?
Disney acquired the Muppets intellectual property from Henson for $75 million on February 17, 2004. The acquisition consisted of most of the Muppets film and television library, as well as the Bear in the Big Blue House television series. Exceptions included the Sesame Street characters; the Fraggle Rock characters, which were retained by Henson; and the distribution rights to four films: The Muppets Take Manhattan, Muppets from Space, and Kermit's Swamp Years, which were retained by Sony Pictures Entertainment; and It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, retained by NBCUniversal Television Distribution.
Two problems with that.So I guess no one wants an Archer production in 4k.
Nice to see some love for Picnic.Picnic
