Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1

I think it was probably one of the first NL conversions

As far as Matchstick Men on the HV/BBV only list, I have the 2-disc DVD/CD soundtrack which came in a keepcase at all retail stores for a short period of time...not sure if this should go on the list.
That's wrong I believe. Nothing has changed about North By Northwest. The Mask SE is in a keepcase but they also converted the original before going to the SE. You're right about Matchstick Men as well. But it's a special edition so I don't count that as a upgrade from a snapper.

Also, I'm not saying everyone is lying about A Nightmare on Elm Street. I believe you. I just wish I could find it. Plus, it is just the first one that's in a keepcase or is it the entire box set?

I noticed Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is being re-released on 6/21 (price drop maybe?). The picture on Amazon.com of the widescreen version is a keepcase (full screen picture is a snapper). Not sure if theres anything to that or not.

OK, finally saw A Nightmare on Elm Street in a keepcase. Not that I didn't believe you guys. But it doesn't look like they'll rerelease the box set in keepcases.

Added The Long Kiss Goodnight.

Where did you found The Long Kiss Goodnight?

It is actually a change of case for both versions (wide and full) being released on the 21st.

The Long Kiss Goodnight was at Wal-Mart. They have a new stand that's only Warner Brothers and New Line titles. It was in there.

The First release of Reservoir Dogs was a Snapper. Grease and Saturday Night Fever were Digipacks Not Snappers. So, technically they don't count.

Good catch Feral.

Wasn't Chaplin and a couple other movies from Live Entertainment original snappers before Artisan bought them and converted them to keepcases?

I included Saturday Night Fever and Grease because single disc digipaks are just as much a abomination as snappers.

Yeah, good point. Chaplin definitely was... as were the original (non-SE) editions of Total Recall and Running Man. Probably a few others. Live/Artisan switched to keepcases pretty darn early in the game.

That may be, but the fact is that there was never a change from one case to the other. Both case styles were available the very first day that both movies were released. It just depended on which retailer you purchased them from. I know this because I purchased Grease on its release date, and mine is in a keepcase.

I thought the only place you could buy Grease in a keepcase was Sam's. I could be wrong. Either way, I'll keep it on there since most people bought it as digipak.

Added Willy Wonka. You think they could have added a free ticket to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

You can also put on the list:

Young Guns
Hoosiers
Dark Victory
Calamity Jane

The "I Am Sam" you can list under New Line and not Blockbuster.

I have changed out all of my New Line snappers besides 3 titles, not counting the NIghtmare on Elm Street Boxset. Has anyone seen in person Pleasantville, Wag The Dog, or the Astronaut's Wife in keepcases? Those are the last 3 I need. Thanks in advance.

Wag the Dog, Pleasantville and The Astronaut's Wife are still MIA. As well as The Player, Shine, The Cell and Dark City.

I doubt they will rerelease the Nightmare on Elm Street boxset in keepcases unfortunately.

When I was looking at the DDD 20% sale, they had many titles like Pleasantville listed as keepcases. I don't want to risk buying them and have them be in snappers. Can anyone confirm or call DDD to be sure they are in keepcases? The Cell is still listed as a snapper however.

The Astronaut's Wife I found at Circuit City. No info on the other 2. I still have about 30 to change.
