    I would like to add a title that should be a major embarrassment to Warner: Purple Rain. How about a cleaned-up, widescreen, anamorphic transfer on this one?
    The current version of this landmark film is an utter piece of shit. [​IMG]

    I'd like to see Warner release dual-layer versions of THE WILD BUNCH and THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING (both are currently "flippers"), as well as a Special Edition upgrade of THE ROAD WARRIOR.

    And let's not forget a final-final Kubrick boxset with films in their OTAR (Original Theatrical Aspect Ratio!) - anamorphic widescreen (and that includes ratios of 1.54 and above!), using DVD-18 as necessary to present the KPAR (Kubrick's preferred aspect ratio) versions on the other side.

    In addition to the aforementioned full-frame titles and the 16x9 issue, Warner needs to desperately remaster Unforgiven. The existing DVD of this superb film is contemptable.

    I really hope that WB reads this and sees that since MGM deal a ok job on Mad Max that they need to go all out and do a nice 2 disk set for the Road Warrior and a SE for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome *there was this cool hour long doc made in 1985 that ran on the making of the film that they could add*

    A Streetcar Named Desire is a masterpiece in need of restoration.

    As one of the most successful Hollywood musicals of all time, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS deserves special edition treatment. SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS should be re-issued in 16:9 enhanced wide screen from a restored hi-def transfer, along with 5.1 remastered audio, plus a cast and crew commentary, and the hour long special on the "making of" that aired on television several years back.

    Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men are not coming into my house until they are OAR Anamorphic. No matter how much my partner wants them to.

    Both of Burton's Batman movies and Beetlejuice.

    To add what Donald said. If I remember correctly from the Warner chat. Robin Hood is getting an SE this summer or fall. Morgan Creek is working on it.
