    I would love to bite on some of these, but I've spent a small fortune between the Disney Movie Club, Screen Archives and Twilight Time this month. Next time!

    If you are being fiscally prudent, stay away from importcds, today. All the Warner Archives pre-orders for April are listed as $1,094.53 or $1,144.58, each!!!

    Pretty much same here - between the Twilight Time sale, the Criterion flash sale, and the fact that this sale doesn't include any of the 2017 releases and I can sit it out. If they included the January and February titles I would have been all over it.

    There are only 2 Blus in that sale that I don't already have and want. In order to participate I would have to sell myself on two more Blu-rays that I don't particularly want, like possibly Doc Savage, Time After Time, or The Hunger.

    Any news for June 2017 titles?

    WAC hasn't updated its webpage for preorders past May 23. Someone found a HONDO [TV] series announcement at VideoETA, but that's the only news I've read.

    Anyone know why the MOD DVD of Protocol (1984) with Goldie Hawn is listed as 4x3 full frame (Original Aspect Ratio)? I'm aware that the old dvd was full frame, but lately when they have been re-releasing films in the WAC and the previous dvd was full frame, they make sure to release it in OAR the second time around. Protocol also has a widescreen HD master, so simply using the old master when it is MAR is baffling. It even says on the back of the box modified from the original aspect ratio.
    Even more troubling is that when I asked a question a few weeks ago on the WAC facebook page they deleted my post. This seems to be their MO as of late if they don't like some questions. I'm hoping this is a typo as this is one of the titles I have been requesting to get re-released in widescreen for quite some time.

    In a spot of good news, the WAC site on the WBSHOP has listed the June titles. They are all re-releases of past releases, many of them previously in box sets. The good news is that there are four widescreen re-releases with the titles now listed as widescreen being: Power (1986), The Betsy, Alaska (1996), and Dead-Bang (1989). If they are willing to re-do those for widescreen, why not Protocol? Any ideas?

    Also here are the new titles listed in the WAC for June

    6/6

    Young Man with a Horn DVD
    My Dream is Yours DVD
    Romance on the High Seas DVD
    It's a Great Feeling DVD

    Mark, the product description at WBSHOP is a mistake for PROTOCOL

    The email WAC send out yesterday advertises PROTOCOL as "First Time In Widescreen." "Newly mastered in the original 1.78:1 aspect ratio".

    Is this the future of WA,rereleasing out of print titles? At least sprinkle in several new titles a month, barely nothing so far this year.

    My favorite part of Warner Archives was the classic gems never available on dvd before . As the last year has passed by there have been fewer and fewer of these titles . There are still so many more they could release . I hope they are not abandoning those movies for rereleases . I'm very happy with upgrading the old Wac titles with blurays . But at least, like other posters have said, keep those never on dvd movies coming . Even if at a slower rate then before .
