I am on a quest to mention Robert Altman's Thieves Like Us in every thread of this nature. I am also e-mailing Mulvaney every other week or so to say RELEASE THIS PLEASE. I don't think it's working...

My big dream for DVD... is that all of the various BBC and Public TV dramas that I loved so much as a kid might be made available as retail purchases.

Problem is, most of it has already been released, but *ONLY FOR THE LIBRARY/SCHOOL MARKET*--where they charge an additional $200 fee or more per disc for "public performance rights"...

In particular, I most want the complete BBC Shakespeare--available now for about 3 grand!!--and The Theban Plays--available for about $500... Damn shame that they cut the general audience out of the equation entirely and focus only on "institutional sales"...

A remastered, anamorphic BRIDE WITH WHITE HAIR. There are a bunch of different releases of this Hong Kong masterpiece and they all look and sound terrible.

I thought "The Monster Squad" came out only just a bit ago? I could have sworn I saw it on shelves even...and speaking of Fred Dekker which I didn't know he did MS...

though I have a decent copy..."Night of the Creeps"
and "Wonder Years" tv series.

One of my favorite movies from the 60's that has NEVER appeared on home video in any form is Arthur Penn's MICKEY ONE with Warren Beatty (made just before they went on to do Bonnie and Clyde) - a mesmerizing film about paranoia set in Chicago, with a great jazz score featuring Stan Getz.

I do think that most of these will hit DVD, as most of these are high in demand. There are, however, some lesser talked about things that I wonder if will show up. One that I have been thinking about lately is the Paper Moon TV series. The show was before my time, and I love the movie, and I've only read good things about the TV series, and would love to see it. Including it in a box set anniversary edition or special edition of some sort with the original movie would be idea.

And there are some on DVD that are out there, but I am wondering if the studios will ever make special editions of the movies. They are movies I really like, but I don't want to settle for bare bones editions of them if I am going to spend money on them. Rainmaker and Bulworth are a couple examples there. I am actually more concerned about special editions of certain beloved movies never being made because they already are put out on DVD in substandard ways, and that might be all the studio will do for it.

Most everything else listed will come eventually. At least I hope.

Dude, this and the complete third series are available from amazon.co.uk.
Spoiler:
and even though they change the actor who plays Matt, the series is still freaking fantastically hilarious
