Logan's Run
Filmation live-action shows (the '70s Saturday morning series Shazam, Isis, Ark II, Space Academy, Jason of Star Command and The Ghost Busters)
Wow, I would love to see all of these again - I had totally forgotten about Cliff Hangers and have tried for years to remember the T.V. show about space trash I was just talking with a friend about Shazam and Isis a couple weeks ago.

Get Crazy - I have mentioned this in past threads about DVD wants. I used to draw my own comic strip with the human-sized cigarette/joint

The Reflecting Skin - Love it, don't know why, morbid as could be



Here's one I would love to see but never will - Tales of the Gold Monkey, ABC series 1982-1983 with Stephen Collins.

My immediate wishes:

True Confessions (De Niro & Duvall)
Tom Horn (McQueen)

Neither particularly well known, both excellent.

All versions of Les Miserables currently not on DVD, especially the four hour French version, perferably with a new dub and with the original language track as well, so I can watch it in both. And the Les Miserables TV mini series that aired on the Family Channel a while back. And all other versions of Les Miserables not currently on DVD.

X-Tro, one of my all time favorite horror movies, and I don't have many of those that I really want.

Watermellon Man. It's a movie about a white man that wakes up one day to learn he has turned into a black man (His wife really must have liked that!!!) and it was made in like 1970. The political incorrectness of this title just amazes me, and hope the DVD comes uncut.

I didn't read through this whole thread, so if this was posted already sorry

I really want Over the Edge on DVD.



1979 Matt Dillon movie, IIRC it was his first film. A favorite from when I was a kid.

Also, I want Idiot Box on DVD, it was a "sketch" comedy show on MTV by Alex Winter. Some of the funniest sketches I can remember.
