Just a note to exercise a little caution in what you pick up. It looks like a number of these are those Columbia Tri-Star titles which originally had both the widescreen & fullscreen versions on one disc. I say "originally" because now many of them appear to be only the bargain bin fullscreen (non-OAR) versions.

I've basically stopped buying the Columbia/TriStar older titles on line because of this. If I find some I want at a B&M, I pick them up, because the hassle of returning them is much less that dealing with the mail.

Thanks for the heads up . I almost bought Starman , Two Moon Junction, and the Suspect until I saw they were full screen only. No sale Columbia.

Someone To Watch Over Me and Postcards From the Edge are still widescreen.

Peegy Sue Got Married is pan and scan.

I highly recommend Bottle Rocket and Following. Fortunately, I didn't see anything I had to have.

Night of the Living Dead 90 is a must have for horror fans.

Someone To Watch Over Me is almost a forgotten Ridley Scott film.
Probably would be more well regarded today if someone besides Tom Berenger had been cast in the lead.

Thanks for your post.

Just wanted to let you know that "Body Double" is one of those titles that was originally released in widescreen & fullscreen, but is now fullscreen only. Just a heads-up incase it matters to you.

I'm not terribly picky. Just filling out the three De Palmas that matter to me. I've nailed "Blow Out" and "Body Double"... now I'll wait for a cheapie price on "Dressed To Kill". But thanks for the skinny Al.

The Tingler is on page 9. Great Vincent Price/William Castle title.

All I saw to get was Radio Flyer and took a chance on Behold a Pale Horse.

Oh geez. Thanks for the heads up about the full screen issue. I was gonna pick up Dance With Me. I love dance movies & to fully appreciate them widescreen is a necessity. You miss alot of movement & where the dancers are in relation to the floor & others around them when its done on full screen. Blech. No thanks.

Thanks for the post!

I got:
THE BLOB
HUDSON HAWK
ONE FALSE MOVE
THE QUICK AND THE DEAD
RADIO FLYER

Anyone who hasn't seen One False Move, it's just as good if not better than Thornton's Sling Blade, IMO. You can't beat it for five bucks.

I would have taken Body Double, Screamers, and Sheena, but not in fool screen. Too bad.

Nope, but you know what they say about there being grass on the hill.
