I just saw this and it's like a kick in the balls!


Release the fuckin' actual movie already, Miramax! Or whoever the Hell else has the distribution rights in the States currently.

Damn this one chaps my hide. I've been waiting for The Krays on disc since before I bought a player and now this gets rubbed in my face.

What's pissing you off these days (DVD related)?

Electric Dreams, although I assume you mean stuff that has been announced but never seems to be released. That being the case, "12:01" probably takes first place, followed closely by "JOY STICKS", and of course the Deluxe Edition of "A Fish Called Wanda". Dates have been announced for at least two of them if not all three, but it today's DVD market, that means precisely dick.

For me, it's all about The Wonder Years. We get tease, after tease, after tease, and it never seems to come together. One day they'll get the musical rights figured out, and put out a strong Wonder Years release...

For me it's Almost an Angel starring Paul Hogan. For some reason I always liked that movie. That's been #1 for a long time. For awhile I had Harry and the Hendersons on there but they finally released it on Region 2 about 6 months ago and I ended up getting it.

Decline of Western Civilization 1 is the one I want the most but don't really expect. Twin Peaks Season 2 is the most annoying because there is no earthly reason it hasn't been released.

1492: Conquest Of Paradise - When I purchased my first dvd player (an LD/DVD combo player) I wanted this to own on DVD really bad. That was almost like a decade ago and this dvd has never gotten a region 1 release. It's been released internationally, but never officially in the USA. Paramount has played around with release dates, but nothing has come of it. To make matters worse this is a Ridley Scott film, there is a market for the DVD, the soundtrack by Vangelis is loved by many, there is no excuse in the world to have taken this long in getting a DVD release.

Almost An Angel - What good is owning Crocodile Dundee 1/2/3 on DVD if I don't own imo one of Paul Hogan's best films on DVD. This should have been released by Paramount when they finally released the Crocodile Dundee franchise on DVD years ago. To make matters worse, to my knowledge no other region has seen a DVD release, ever.

Howard The Duck - Could have been a staple in the $5.50 bin at Wal-Mart had this been released by Universal years ago.

Pure Luck - Underrated Martin Short comedy with excellent physical comedy from Short and Danny Glover and him have good chemistry together on screen. No DVD ever released anywhere, except in Russia. Yeah, Russia!

Lost Highway - This has been released internationally like crazy, but this needs an official Lynch approved region 1 release, and forget the Canadian release, it's BS.

Harry And The Hendersons - I know about region 2, that's fine, but this should have gotten released years ago in region 1. People have a right to be pissed.

One the things about The Krays is that eats me up so much is that there hasn't been any announcement. No word, hint or clue. As if this movie didn't exist and I am a refugee from The Twilight Zone who saw a movie that was never made.

Then we get all these made for cable movies in deluxe editions. I've been able to check Delicatessan and original dialogue Mad Max off my list, but that only seems to make it more glaring that this movie has apparently been forgotten.

Also nice would be a OAR version of Miracle Mile.

Oh yeah, and Twin Peaks Season 2.
