I ask this partly in jest but also in seriousnes as well. For instance 2 movies that I love and haven't seen since I switched over to DVD in 1998 are "The Brinks Job" and "The Friends of Eddie Coyle." Both these movies have good reviews, good direction and stellar cast. Yet with hundreds older movies being released every week, most of it being drek, why haven't these two examples seen the light of digital day? Some older movies have been released and voila, re-released with new sound and picture elements. Who decides? What is the criteria (other than money? Sometimes it seems a newer version has to be just about released when the old film makes its DVD arrival (King Kong anyone?). Anyway, just venting, feel free to add your 2 cents.
