    They keep telling us that horror films are a niche that always sells. Well, what about this set:
    Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
    Return of the Killer Tomatoes
    Killer Tomatoes Strike Back
    Killer Tomatoes Eat France

    Of course, being tomatoes, this would have to be a box set!

    And if you think four Tomatoes flicks are too many, remember there were SIX Sharknado films — and all are on Blu-ray!

    The first two have been released on Blu-Ray by two different companies ... "Ketchup? ;)"

    As to the question at hand ...

    David Lean Directs Charles Dickens Criterion Set
    Dean Lean after Lawrence of Arabia Criterion Set

    The only issue with that is right now we're never going to see the Chan's come to Blu-ray because Disney now owns Fox and they would probably find those offencive. Because it's a Swede or a Scotsman or an American playing an Asian man. Even though they are the most inoffensive series of films, Charlie, does keep people in check, i seriously love the Chan films.

    On the other hand I'd be all over Criterion finally jumping into some of the lean the two Charles Dickens would be awesome.

    And I honestly don't know how they would feel about it but it would be nice to have a comprehensive Shirley Temple set released, the fox films of course because sooner or later Warner Brothers will get around to releasing a couple that she's in, hopefully.

    By the way I have those first two tomato films on Blu-ray, knock them out during last year's October Halloween Horror Fest.!

    Curious about that, because Mill Creek released Mothra, so if Criterion/Janus had it how did it get a release through a different company? I would be up for that.

    I don't think I have seen the last two tomato movies, but I enjoy the first two. I'd pick up a complete set.
