sharky`s machine widescreen

one of my favorite burt reynolds movies is sharky`s machine. unfortunately, to my knowledge, the only available version out there is a full screen snapper dvd.
are there any plans to re-release this great action thriller?

so many films worth being released, that are kept back!!

Re: sharky`s machine widescreen

Yeah, I saw that too. I wanted to get Sharkys Machine on DVD.
I seen the movie a long time ago and I liked it.
But when I seen the full frame edition only I lost interest and passed it on by.
When it get's a widescreen release ( if it ever does ) then i'll pick it up.
There are a ton of DVD's that I want to get that are still not being released yet.
I agree with you.

Re: sharky`s machine widescreen

There are just a ton of catalogue titles languishing with either non-enhanced transfers or incorrect aspect ratios. This doesn't even begin to touch the many, many catalog titles that remain unreleased on DVD or BD altogether.

With the poor economy, and the wind seemingly blowing in the direction of fewer catalog titles being released, I fear that many of these will remain in the vaults for an indefinite period of time.

With Warner, though, you can never say never. They seem to be maintaining an interest in older product at a higher level than other studios. But it is very, very frustrating when some movies get re-released over and over when others can't get even one proper release.

R4 PAL Anamorphic is available.

I agree that there are too many titles that are unrelased or poorly released, and because of this, I've come to despise blu-ray and the hype surrounding such titles as The Dark Knight. If every Dark-Knight purchaser had instead purchased an old catalog title, the studios would be scrambling to open their vaults.

What a flawed argument you have there. Catalog titles languished for years before Blu-ray existed, and did so because of a lack of sales. Blu-ray hasn't affected the situation at all. As far as "The Dark Knight," you act as if people can only buy or the other. I have "The Dark Knight," but I also have plenty of older catalog titles.

The transfer is very good and the cover is the original movie art work.
It is worth picking up as is.
