no title

My Criterions are coveted. and a Little Rascals set I own.
Shap- I knwo your Gamestop, or the one you went to. I was going to buy that Robocop Criterion, too bad it didn't have the metal case, or Sid and Nancy but the clerk wouldn't let me because it was rated X. Good job on picking it up. Did you also see the Do The Right Thing Criterion? and another rare OOP they had there was Casino. Cheers.

Sid and Nancy (Criterion)

I saw it on sale used at Amazon for $71. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...v=glance&s=dvd

Crazy.

Little Shop of Horrors (1986) with the original ending in B&W work print. Got it just a couple of years ago at a Borders in Knoxville, shipped to my home in Nashville at sticker price $24.98 + shipping. A tip on this board helped; someone spotted some Borders stores getting the re-issue (minus the original ending), but mixed in were the remaining old stock of the first issue (previously gathering dust in a WB warehouse perhaps??). So I started calling stores from the Borders website store locator. Considered buying several, but I'm such a fan of the musical, I wanted others to have a shot at a copy, too.

I didn't even realize that some of the DVDs listed here are OOP.

Is there a website that lists all OOP DVDs?

As for me, of all the OOP movies in my collection I [still] enjoy Halloween the most. Stamped No. 1,865.

Someone mentioned earlier that this version was limited to 10,000 copies. I thought it was more in the lines of 20-30,000.

The two Godzilla movies you posted pictures of, "Godzilla vs. Monster Zero" and "Terror of Mechagodzilla" are OOP?

I've got these Simitar releases along with 3 others packaged as a box set.

If they are indeed OOP, cool.
If not, I love 'em anyway.

Count me in on this one, too. Excellent film from one of the world's best directors.

I also love my Walt Disney Treasures Davy Crockett tin and my signed I Drink Your Blood LE!

All of my Disney moratorium stuff (Pinocchio, Little Mermaid, Lady & The Tramp, Jungle Book, 101 Dalmations, etc.) that I'm glad I got when they first came out. Even my "rebuys" of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.

The one-disc is still in print, and the extras on the two-disc are a bit light. This is what's listed:
8 deleted/alternative scenes ("Lava Sequence" is with "multi-angle function")
Extended ending
"Original 1986 promotional" featurette
"Multi angle" interview with special effects designer Richard Edlund
Music video ("Big Trouble in Little China" by The Coupe DeVilles)
3 theatrical trailers (2 US, and Spanish)
Teaser trailer
5 TV-spots
Magazine articles (varying from "American Cinematographer" to "Cinefex")
Production notes
Cast & crew filmographies and biographies

It sounds like a lot, right? But most of the scenes are short extensions; I want to say it's even all just edited together, but I'm probably wrong; I watched that second disc once and the only thing I thought was cool at all was the ending.

It's cool stuff if you're a big fan, but I wouldn't pay too high for it.

it sounds like a lot even without the deleted. i like the fluffy stuff like extended endings, trailers, etc..it's some featurettes that bore me.
are the transfers and audio the same on the 2-disc and 1-disc? both have the DTS? i think i could get the 2D for $30 which is pretty close to MSRP, so i don't think it will be too bad for such a great popcorn movie.
