That is all about James Cameron. He puts serious demands on a studio when they transfer one of his films and Fox hasn't aggressively pushed him to sign off on them.

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

The Beach-I hated it when i first came out, but grew on me after multiple viewings. Leo is as popular an actor as ever and Danny Boyle is still making movies.
Private Parts-I still have the VHS and never got the dvd, I always thought it was funny.
The Ghost and The Darkness- already been said here but it would make an awesome bluray.

Yup, I'm aware of those. I posted the info in the Shout release thread.

Even Breaker, Breaker is getting a BD release from Olive films. That is a super dated and cheesy Norris film.

Now we need Forced Vengeance, Silent Rage and maybe even The Hitman and I'll be good.

It's probably been mentioned before, but Lost Highway is one I really want.

Re: Movies you're surprised that haven't been released on Blu yet

Hanshotfirst1138...seconded, and I thought I had already mentioned Alligator in this thread, but yeah...John Sayles screenplay, Robin Riker, Robert Forster, Shout/Olive/Kino would be ideal labels to realease this film. Although now that I think about it some more, Screen Archives Entertainment is also hosting a new label or two that puts out quality blus of exploitation/cult films.

I think Alligator has some kind of unusual ownership issue. Never any US DVD release and the VHS releases were on small labels nobody ever heard of. I'm thinking it's owned by one guy who has the original negative at his house.

The one that is a mystery to me is the original Willard, and it's sequel Ben. They were huge hits and seem to have dropped off the face of the earth. Originally released by Cinema Releasing Corporation theatrically. A chunk of CRC titles now reside with MGM/UA but a lot don't. Yet even the ones not owned by MGM/UA have surfaced on DVD or tv from time to time. Didn't New Line do the remake? Maybe they have them.

The "Willard" re-make was New Line. I was wondering about the original myself a few weeks back. I don't recall it being available on DVD either. Love to see it, though (with some features, since Bruce Davison and Sondra Locke are still around, -just about everybody else has died).

I kept hoping Dragonslayer would go to Shout, but like Mighty Max it appears that even if they wanted to, there're legal issues.

Oh, and Shivers uncut, unless Arrow's replacement program is finally up and running .

Even the DVD is OOP. It must be some kind of rights issue.
