    I have seemingly been quiet with the lack of
    reviews I have posted this week. The reason is
    simple -- I have been putting together reviews
    for the upcoming batch of Warner Bros. DVDs set
    for release on February 4th.
    Due to the policies set forth by the studio, I am
    not allowed to post my reviews until the 21st
    of this month.
    I did want to let all of you know that in
    addition to a really superb Special Edition of
    Driving Miss Daisy, there are two classic
    films making their debut that are worth your
    consideration. I highly enjoyed watching both
    Mildred Pierce and A Patch Of Blue,
    two Oscar-winning titles that should be considered
    for rental, if you don't already plan to purchase.
    I think the reason why I am so excited about
    these titles is because many of these classics
    are a first-time discovery for me. It's like
    going into someone's attic and opening up a box
    of treasures you never knew existed.
    There really is something to be said about classic
    film. The generation that dominates the ownership
    of DVD players don't readily appreciate B&W classics
    like these. I'll admit that it took me many years
    to want to start watching a lot of these old
    classics, but thanks to the wonderful presentation
    quality that DVD offers, I seem to be an addict in
    need of more classics to watch.
    Do watch for my reviews of these three films over
    the next two weeks. I always try to convey how
    much I enjoy most of the material I review in
    hopes that some of my excitement rubs off on some
    of you.

    Excellent! We look forward to reading them and buying the titles featured, Ronald.

    I'm particularly fond of Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy.

    Thanks Ron. I look forward to the reviews. I also like old classics that have been beautifully restored on DVD, but so many are being announced these days that I'm finding it hard to purchase all I would like. I may have to join Netflix at some point or I'll never see some of them.
    It seems not everyone is playing by the studio's rules; I just read a full review of Mildred Pierce at another site.

    Glad to hear your enjoying these Ron.
    sounds like there must be trove of older films you still have to discover...boy are you gonna have fun!

    if it were up to me, i'd be more than happy to buy one or two new-to-dvd catalog classics (like Mildred Pierce) every single week.
    i'm much more interested in material like this, that has stood the test of time and still can weave a spell, than this weeks hot-priced hollywood crap-fest that will be old news a year and a 1/2 from now.
    if only they didn't just trickle out...

    i, for one, would be happy to double dip on a classic like Postman Always Rings Twice, or Queen Christina, or Out of the Past, if the 2nd issue of it greatly improves on the a/v or offers up substantial supplements- otherwise i just want to own it on disc!
