Top Want List ?

I was curious as to what everyone's favourite tv series or movie/movies are that you really wish were on dvd/blu-ray, but seriously doubt will ever come out.

Island of Lost Souls (1933)
The Herculoids
the 60's Marvel Super Hero shows (the one where they took Kirby's panels and just 'moved' them around! Great stuff).. amazing with all the Marvel movies that this is still an untapped treasure to release on DVD.

Re: Top Want List ?

Any time I see one of these threads, my first thought is a director's cut of The Avengers. The movie was butchered from its original running time, which ran anywhere between 115 minutes (which makes sense) and 15 minutes (which would explain some editing), and if you read the novelization of the movie, there is A LOT of good stuff missing; stuff that made the movie comprehensible, and definitely more entertaining. I would buy that in a heartbeat.

The Brink's Job (although I'm fortunate to have an OoP anamorphic R2 edition to be able to make do with in the mean time)
Cattle Annie And Little Britches

MGM
Wuthering Heights
Wanda Nevada

Sony
The Music Of Chance
Gidget (OAR)
Just You And Me, Kid

Fox
Call Her Savage
Hoopla

Re: Top Want List ?

I got ridiculed when I made a thread like this! and they linked me to many other threads! lol.. but I won't do that.


The one movie I really really want that I haven't seen is


Speed Zone!

I can't understand why it never came out. All-star cast including John Candy, Has great cars and is a pretty fun story.

Yeah. You get used to that around here.

As for me, I have to say that my taste is way too pedestrian for there to really be much that I want that hasn't at least at one point been made available. Still waiting for a DVD release of Cool as Ice, though.

If the Saturday Morning Cartoon Series Hot Wheels and Skyhawks, that ran on ABC from 1969 to 1971 ever came out on DVD I'd buy em in a Heartbeat! Both of them had Casey Kasem (Who also did the Voice of Scooby Doo) doing the voice of a Characture in these series. They were taken off the air because a Children's Advocacy Group complained they were overlong Commercials! (What Kids's Show ISN'T These Days?) Holy Hypocrisy Batman!

If your search at amazon is "man-eater", the eliminate that part and just search with "of hydra". Take out the hyphen and it searches correctly.

I would like legit editions of Republic Trucolor westerns released on DVD, esp. those with Roy Rogers.



And more Audie Murphy movies.




More westerns in general.
