The Official BD Wishlist and "When or will this movie come out on BD? Thread - Page 84

post #2491 of 2573
I never would have thought in a million years that one of my guilty pleasures would be coming to Blu in early 2014: "The Beast of Hollow Mountain" (along with "The Neanderthal Man" in a two-pack from Scream! Factory). This definitely gives me hope that any movie can make it to Blu-Ray!

Captain from Castile (1947)

(#2 of 12 classic color films)

Not so much a swashbuckler as a historical romance, moving from Spain to the conquest of Mexico.

Review: Captain from Castile (1947).

That Forsyte Woman (1949)

Costume soap opera. Interesting if you've seen and liked the miniseries editions of the story.

Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959)

(#5 of 12)

Because we must include a children's film, and who doesn't want to hear young Sean Connery sing?

David and Bathsheba (1951)

Must have a Bible movie. This is already on region B, but I'm including it anyway because it is a favorite.

Still no news of Soderbergh's Solaris Blu-ray release so when I saw it available on VUDU (HDX) last night I purchased it. This is a new addition so I'm thinking perhaps the Blu-ray may make an appearance soon.

Full Body Massage with Mimi Rogers
post #2506 of 2573
I want all those B-movies and DTV treasures from the 90's. The stuff you saw frequently on Cinemax, Showtime, and The Movie Channel.

The Prince and the Showgirl (1957)

(#9 of 12)

With Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier. This is the film they were making in My Week with Marilyn. The result was better than you might expect after seeing the latter film.

Best of the Badmen (1951)

One last western. This is a minor title but it has a good cast and I'd like to see it restored.

The Three Musketeers (1948)

Very silly in the first half, a bit more serious in the second.

these reviews you take time to do are fantastic... thanks
post #2511 of 2573
I've searched this thread and didn't find anybody else asking about this movie--"Strategic Air Command" with Jimmy Stewart and June Alllyson. I don't even seem to be able to find a DVD of this, let alone a BR. Amazon only has a VHS available for this movie. Do any of you out there have any info about at least a DVD, or better, a BR copy of this movie? Thanks for any input.

I just watched this the other day on broadcast TV...

Strategic Air Command - DVD Brand New

The Harvey Girls (1946)

(#12 of 12 -- the last one!)

You'd think this would be a Blu-ray natural: a musical heavy with female talent, including Judy Garland, Angela Lansbury and Cyd Charisse. On the other hand it doesn't seem well known, so who can say?

Thanks for posting these, Bill. The screen shots you're including make me want to see all of these but this one especially since it's Powell and Pressburger. I just saw the Criterion bluray of Black Narcissus for the first time over the weekend and WOW. Made me want to see all their films that I can find, starting with the others on blu (The Red Shoes and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp) and then anything else I can find on DVD too.

BTW, top of my wishlist to be released on blu is High Society. One of my favorite movies of all time anyway and being on VistaVision should make it an excellent candidate for a really gorgeous bluray if they just give it the proper restoration.
post #2516 of 2573
If you've waited for The Undefeated with John Wayne to come out on Blu-ray, the new release by Fox looks great. I would also like to express gratitude for Bill's excellent series of posts over the years.
post #2517 of 2573
Besides High Society here are the others I'd most like to see released on bluray:

The Abyss
Bad Day at Black Rock
The Bedford Incident
Before Sunrise / Before Sunset
The Bounty
Crimes and Misdemeanors
The Fabulous Baker Boys
Fandango
Gorky Park
The King and I
Light Sleeper
Lone Star
Mississippi Burning
Oklahoma!
Ordinary People
Return to Paradise
Six Degrees of Separation
Strange Days
Suddenly Last Summer
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
The World According to Garp

And here are some others that AFAIK are only available as imports right now:

Black Robe
Killing Zoe

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Map of the Human Heart
Quiz Show
A Simple Plan
Tootsie

Zulu has definitely been confirmed to be getting an American release from Twilight Time in 2014. I'm amazed we haven't seen a domestic version for Touch of Evil.

Touch of Evil is getting a new restoration from Universal.

Thanks. I saw that and signed up for the pre-order through blu-ray.com. I wasn't familiar with Twilight Time before but reading up on some of their earlier releases it seems like they do a good job. Depending how they price it though I may just get the UK import on Amazon for $25. I'd hesitate a bit since I've seen some mixed reviews on the PQ on that one but I wonder if I'd notice on my 40" TV anyway.

FYI, they've also announced Crimes and Misdemeanors, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Blue Max and Khartoum (which I've never seen but which I could almost convince myself to do a blind buy just because it was shot in 70mm and I love how the large format movies look transferred to blu).
