Equilibrium was re-released 10/23/12 on a double feature disc @2.35:1 (OAR 2.39:1?) as opposed to the original BD enhanced for HDTV. I would expect with two movies on one 25GB disc video quality suffers.

How about:

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee!

The existing DVD is letterboxed within the 4x3 area. I'd love to see a remaster that I don't have to zoom to watch properly.

Are they ever going to release more 80s and 90s movies? They released some to start and then a bunch and then trickled a couple more out but now it just seems to be all current releases or pre-80s titles.

80s:
They don't even have many of John Hughes out yet, what happened to Some Kind of Wonderful, Weird Science, Pretty in Pink?
The Right Stuff? [EDIT: coming out late this year]
No Way Out (heck this one doesn't even a proper DVD release)?
The Bounty?
Crocodile Dundee?
The Blob?
Desperately Seeking Susan?
Witness?
Innerspace?
LadyHawke?
Lucas?
Splash?
An Officer And A Gentleman [EDIT: coming out in May]
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
The Sure Thing?
Mischief?
Blown Away?
Valley Girl?
Can't Buy Me Love?

(I think a few may be avail on obscure Region B release, but that is pretty bizarre considering that these were American movies, why does the US tend to get most titles, even our own, last?)

90s:
Brokedown Palace?
Kundun? (there was a European release but it was horror story, the single worst DNR to wax job ever done to any blu-ray! Anyway I guess we know we will never get this one thanks to a certain company bowing down before a certain nation.)
Beyond Rangoon?
etc.

And why is Veronica Mars still not out on blu-ray? All seasons were produced in hi-def.
Same for early seasons of 24.

Roger Rabbit's coming out on Blu sometime in March.

I've read The Blob will be coming some time next year from Twilight Time as one of their "limited to 3000 copies" editions.

Ladyhawke is available now as an import from Hong Kong. I have it, it's well worth the trouble to find from the Asian outlets.

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

Been waiting for this one myself. I did some searching the other day and stumbled across this interview with W.D. Richter about the Special Edition DVD.

Good read.

Thanks, yeah sounds like TT has The Blob for 2014 (speaking of TT I never even knew they existed until a couple weeks ago- some titles there that I bet many didn't even know had been released). I guess I'll give a look at an Asian important for Ladyhawke. In both cases gonna be pricey. Still seems bizarre that US movies tend to be released sometimes years later in the US than elsewhere.

could someone help me with this movie.

i am trying to find the name of it. but i forgot it.

i i remembered i watched it in the cinema an animation movie somewhere in early 2000. about a little boy and a big robot. i thought the time was around 1950s , 1960s.

i just wonder if that movie was already released on bluray.

but hard to check if i cant find the title. i dont think it was released by disney. but not sure. but the animation was top notch and story was great too.

thanks in advance

No dates, but Digital Bits has reports of some titles said to be in process: http://www.thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-two-cents/032013_1130

And in other news, here’s something cool via TIME magazine: According to film restoration expert Michael Daruty (who was involved in the recent work on Schindler’s List), Universal is planning to restore and release between 3 and 5 classic catalog films a year on Blu-ray. The best news? They’re currently working on A Touch of Evil, High Plains Drifter and Double Indemnity!

And finally a bit of good news: Our own Tim Salmons has learned via Don May, Jr. that director William Friedkin is currently working on a Blu-ray transfer Sorcerer from the original negative! How cool is that? We’ll post more as it comes in.

These are all high priority for me. Sorceror was pan&scan on DVD. Here's hoping Friedkin is taking his meds (or not, if that's the problem).

I would like these to be release soon as well.

For the love of God, when will Warners release Local Hero? And if they don't, I hope Criterion will step up to the plate. I've got the old DVD and man, is the picture awful.

I was at a comic book convention a few weeks ago and a guy was selling bootleg DVDs of that one.

My wishlist...

Buckaroo Banzai
Until the End of the World
Prince of Darkness
The Serpent and the Rainbow

I'm sure there's more.
post #2455 of 2572
Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight
Tales from the Crypt: Bordell of Blood

Seriously wtf aren't these movies out yet? Demon Knight at the very least, I don't know anyone who's seen it and not liked it. These have been broadcast on the HD movies, so HD masters do exist, Universal could easily release a double feature.

UK distributor Second Sight has Streets of Fire in the pipeline, but it's not dated yet.

And neveser should be happy to hear that Shout!/Scream Factory has announced Prince of Darkness for the fall.
post #2459 of 2572
My latest list:

Milagro Beanfield War
Waterloo (S.Bondarchuk)
The Pawnbroker (S.Lumet)
Giant
In the Heat of the Night

and just because I want to be totally shallow, but really would love this:

One Million Years B.C. - Raquel Welch's best work ever.
post #2460 of 2572
I'm watching Bachelor Party tonight recorded from IFC and got me thinking we are missing some very iconic 80's flics on blu... what the hell!!!

Bachelor Party
The Great Outdoors
The Burbs
One Crazy Summer
Weird Science
Real Genius
Fletch Lives
Stripes (Theatrical)


I'm sure there are many more 80's greats that I'm forgetting but at this stage in the game its pretty lame these have not been out yet.
