From DVDFile this morning:
How to Murder Your Wife is a definite purchase for me.
Well, it's not as good as some months for me (August being one of the best), but The Russians are Coming! The Russians are Coming! is a must-buy. I never expected to see this on DVD so I'm quite happy.
The Casino Royale release looks great - throwing the original TV movie on as an extra is a nice touch - thanks MGM!!
I'll also pick up The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! and Exodus.
Even though I'm not interested in the Chuck Norris or Ninja flicks, this MAR business is VERY disheartening. MGM, please don't give in to the darkside!
Sigh. Not that THEY WENT THATAWAY... is a cinematic classic, but heck, they're giving us an anamorphic BILLION DOLLAR HOBO! No offense to Tim Conway.
Casino Royale, Russians, and World of Henry Orient are necessities. Not too shabby, MGM...
Methinks the Big Levine is supposed to be the Angel Levine.
Exodus is the title I've been waiting for. This came from nowhere - I've heard no mention of this title being in preparation. It's a little "Hollywoodish" but still a great epic film. Newmann in the Haganah! Sal Mineo in the Irgun! John Derek as a liberal Palestinian!
I've emailed Peter that I think the date of 10/15 for the first block is a typo - probably should be 10/1, since the story continues to mention "next up on 10/8".
There are quite a few good films here, especially How to Murder Your Wife, The World of Henry Orient and The Big Knife. I will be buying all 3 along with TRACTRAC, Exodus and Casino Royale.
And Kurt is correct, that is supposed to be The Angel Levine. I've never seen the film, but I've heard good things about it and since it stars Zero Mostel, I might pick it up sight unseen.
The World of Henry Orient is mine; vastly underrated Sellers flick
Well, I'll be picking up Casino Royale - that'll complete my James Bond DVD collection!
Exodus, Casino Royale, Henry Orient, Russians are all on my Buy list. It's good but no August....but this August is completely fucking sick. I'm counting on getting lots of review discs because there's no way to afford all the great things coming out then---and most of them on the same day.
Casino Royale has been maligned by the James Bond purist, but I really enjoyed this movie.
I will also be picking up The Russians.... I had quite a crush on the blond babysitter in this movie. I remember seeing her in a commerical about the time this movie was released.
I'm with David, I can't wait to get Casino Royale and The Russians...
The release of these old favourites will really fill out my collection.
I'm not gonna worry about the pan and scan only double features. I tend to think MGM figured they might as well release the titles, but didn't think they'd sell, and have reused old transfers to save costs. Thank heavens they knew Teen Wolf had enough of an audience to justify an anamorphic transfer. Until MGM starts making "family films" or movies that people actually care about (like A Midnight Clear) MAR only, I'll chalk this one up to them just being tightwads when it comes to movies they know nobody cares about.
RE: Casino Royale
see, that's just the thing. Region 2 gets some things earlier than R1 (doesn't happen a lot, but it does happen, mostly with TV stuff), but when it happens, the Region 1 release is always better. Really makes you feel like Region 2 is just a test market. In the case of Casino Royale the R2 has been out for quite a while, but it's non-anamorphic and the only extra is a (get this!) anamorphic trailer!
Glad I didn't buy it.
Nothing I'm interested in, though I used to watch The Mechanic a lot. It always seemed to come on TV when I was 10.
MGM are you ever going to release your Bergman films?
Which of Ingrid's films do they have?
