The Official BD Wishlist and "When or will this movie come out on BD? Thread - Page 81

post #2401 of 2571
"Hotel", the 1967 movie with Rod Taylor, Karl Malden, Melvyn Douglas, Richard Conte, Merle Oberon, Kevin McCarthy, Michael Rennie, and so on . . .

One of my all-time faves, but I'm certain that a Blu-ray will NEVER happen.
Finally located a poor quality DVD a couple years back on e-bay, hardly worth watching. Oh well . . .

Warner Archive sells it on DVD. I bought a copy and it is reasonable.

This is a title that might well make it to MOD Blu-ray when we get that format. Warners is working on it.

Witness

Dead Again

I am sure there are others, but those come to mind.

The Russian WAR AND PEACE, directed by co-star Sergei Bondarchuk, desparately needs restoration and a COMPLETE blu-ray release!! One of the truly astounding films of all time.....and one that puts CGI in its place. 5 years to make it, 100 Million 1960s US bucks to make it. You can't believe 25,000 "extras" in a single shot, but it's true!!!

Would love to have "Titan AE" on Blu ray.

The Hitcher (1986)

It's a crime we don't have this on Blu Ray yet, or in an HD format anywhere else. One of the creepiest movies you'll ever see, arguably Rutger Haurs best performance(in a career of great ones), and definitely C. Thomas Howell's.

It's far superior to the decent Sean Bean remake, shame that came out in the midst of the HD DVD vs Blu Ray era, so studios weren't thinking of the original movies they were remaking.

How about:

THE TRAIN, with Burt Lancaster, directed by John Frankenheimer.

DVD is apparently out of print (?), with USED prices on Amazon starting at $17.85. NEW prices start at $33.

Looks like I'm keeping my ancient letterboxed LaserDisc until that situation changes.

And while I'm at it:

DEAD-BANG, with Don Johnson of Miami Vice fame, also directed by Frankenheimer.

This title was one of Warner's ultra-cheap budget DVD's, pan & scan only. I know they've mastered a widescreen version because that's what Amazon Instant Video streams. So where can I buy the d*mn thing?
post #2424 of 2571
And while I'm on a John Frankenheimer kick, how about:

52 PICKUP, with Roy Scheider.

At least I have this on a widescreen DVD, unlike the previous two flicks I mentioned.

KINDERGARTEN COP! In widescreen. The DVD wasn't even anamorphic
post #2426 of 2571
Death Becomes Her

Underrated, sometimes misunderstood, brilliant comedy. 20th anniversary was, well, this year, but still nothing about BD release. It's Universal title so there's a high risk for sharpened, DNR'd mess, but maybe with Zemeckis involvement they could restore it properly?
post #2427 of 2571
My current Wish list:

Over the Hedge
Shark Tale
Antz
The Village
Ali
Open Range
Ghost and the Darkness
The Eagles Farewell Tour
The Abyss

Tess is released on BD in France. Transfer is based on the 4K restauration of 2012.
