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 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.
Would love the bolded movies.
I'd add the following:
Splash (at least Disney did right by their animated mermaid... )
I do NOT say these are all great films, just that they might look very pretty.
I have no way of knowing the condition of the surviving film elements.
I make no claim as to the economic feasibility of a restoration effort. Possibly restoring minor older films just doesn't pay. Although you never know what is going to appear: Stars and Stripes Forever (1952) looks fine, but was anyone clamoring for it?
I have a dozen pre-1960 titles in mind and I'll post them one by one. Not that later years don't have films I'd like to see on Blu-ray, but this first list is from the "golden age" of Technicolor, with that rich, saturated and (dare I say it?) three-dimensional look.
Maybe we can do further lists by decade thereafter.
