Well, technically, it's available in like a region 3 version or something, but let's be real: a classic movie like that should have a proper, anamorphic, region 1 release.

I have never seen region 1 of "Neighbors" with John Belushi, Kathryn Walker or any region for that matter

Which "Odyssey" are you referring to?
The one with Armand Assante is available, I have it.
(Unless it has gone out of print.)

According to DVD Savant, Zero Population Growth (ZPG) may see a release this year. Dystopia, 1970s-style... woohoo!

The dopey Somewhere in Time, which is embarrasingly one of my favorites, is badly in need of an anamorphic upgrade.

As for hopes for HD versions: my world would be complete with Robot Monster, Plan 9 from Outer Space and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Lacking them, I'd settle for Frequency.

How about Tobor the Great (1954) on May 13th?

The Colossus of New York (1958) is still MIA.

Forgot about those....talk about staples of my Saturday at the movies days.

Colossus of New York really creeped me out as a kid.

You can get the whole thing on DVD at MoviesUnlimited.com (just plug the title into the Search box)...either all the eps in one boxed set or individual DVDs if you prefer. Prices aren't bad.

My original list had Walkabout (1971) as needing an anamorphic upgrade. Criterion has announced this for October 2008, the same time as the Blu-Ray version.

This is the first I've heard of Criterion going Blu-Ray: http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/05/07...ay-in-october/

More updates.

Criterion has The Small Back Room listed for August.

Four Errol Flynn westerns are coming in August 2008:
  • Montana
  • Rocky Mountain
  • San Antonio
  • Virginia City

I'm going to add two Walter Hill films that exist only as pan-and-scan:

I am shocked to discover that the fine Viet Nam war film The Siege of Firebase Gloria is not on DVD.

Also missing is The Bribe (1949), which I know only from Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid. Ava Gardner, Charles Laughton, Vincent Price: what more do you want?

I'm afraid I'm going to toss up some terrible movies here but I gotta put up what I'd like to see "one last time"

THE LAST CHASE - Lee Majors and Burgess Merideth (sp) in a futuristic story about a dystopian society, with Lee firing up his racing car (banned) and trying to make it to "free california" (or something like that). Meridth chases him in an airplane and tries to gun him down. I'm sure if I saw it today it would be cringe-worthy but I haven't seen it since maybe 84 or 85, when it was a regular on the HBO/Cinemax circuits.

THE KEEP - recently acquired the widescreen laserdisc rip and even tho I love Mann this was a LOT cooler when I was 12 So I dont want the feature release, even tho I love the arty feel and vibe of the movie (Tangerine Dream for the win!....Miami Vice with Monsters in WW2!), the editing is absolutely horrible..scenes end abruptly. Michael Mann wont talk about the movie, word is his first cut was like 3 1/2 hours long and it was supposed to be a good/evil fairytale (the kind of thing M. NIght might try to pull today) but it never happened.

Outland - honestly its not that great of a movie, but the DVD version is not only non-anamorphic but its also one of the worst DVD transfers I've ever seen.

Phantasm II: WHy aren't you in a Region 1 release? This film actually DOES hold up well 20+ years later and the night I saw it in the theatres the place was packed...not bad for a sequel to a horror film nobody saw in the first place.

And while I hate Armageddon, it was one of the biggest movies of that year, why hasn't there been an anamorphic release of this movie!?!? It boggles the mind. We get 5 versions of Black Hawk Down but only the basic and Criterion version of the DVD and neither is anamorphic...

The Final Option (aka: Who Dares Wins) in a widescreen anamorphic transfer in Region 1.

I'm sure there are a few more stinkers I'd like to see but they currently escape me....

Outland (1981) the region 2 DVD transfer isn’t too bad looking and its been years before since I’ve seen it which was at the cinema rated AA which means I barely got in to see it with my dad and his girlfriend, I was way under age, that was ABC screen 1 Bournemouth, if my memory serves me correctly.

Who Dares Wins (1982) that’s a good ole film with Lewis “The Professionals” Collins

the US market needs to release both 1992 Christopher Columbus (1492: Conquest Of Paradise and Christopher Columbus: The Discovery) movies on DVD. The fact we are still waiting for these is a joke.

Lucas needs to release Howard The Duck in the US market and make fun of it in an interview for the DVD. He needs to put it out already.

also for music artists. A complete rock legends Bon Jovi, the lovely Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette, Shakira, and Christina Aguilera complete videos compilation is needed.

An update: Privilege is scheduled for July 29, 2008.

I've been waiting 40 years for this one. I can't vouch for memories that old, but I recall it as an interesting fable of fascistic social control through pop music idols.

I think The Last Emporer is too fine a film to be represented by the current poor quaility dvd and The Friends of Eddie Coyle with a classic Robert Mitchum performance deserves to be released on DVD.

I have several Errol Flynn so I wouild look forward to getting a few more.

As for "Hard Times" it was released as a flipper way back in 2001 with a Pan and Scan on one side and a 2.35 anamorphic on the other. I have it and it looks good.

Ah, thank you! I see here that there was a rerelease in 2005 that is pan and scan only. Not exactly forward progress...
