Funny movie but with so little gross and so few people knowing about you might be in for a long wait.

Jerky Boys The Movie

I grew up a fan of these guys, and their antics. Shame the movie has never even received a Region 1 DVD release.

Memoirs of the Invisible Man

Evidently, this is something of a forgotten film, but I always had a soft spot for it.

Yep I did that, it kind of feels like an upconvert though. I did the disc to digital for it. Also tried that for "We Are Your Friends", but it wouldn't work.

I thought if you did D2D from a DVD source it would convert inSD quality? If so, then that's why the quality may not be up to snuff. Now if you just bought it through VUDU directly in HDX, would it still look bad and not be 1080p? I'd like to think not.

It's been how many years since the release of BR and these still don't have decent releases?

Bugsy - although tremendous artistic license was taken with this movie compared to the real story, the movie still won two Oscars. Should have gotten a nice BR release by now.

Dragnet - I still have my VHS copy signed by Alexandra Paul. So far just a lousy 1st gen DVD.

Pearl Harbor (Directors cut) - Apparently a very nice BR already for the theatrical, but the DC was a much better war film. Not a good movie, but the added realism made it better.

Timeline - a guilty pleasure that would look good in HD

Tin Cup - an enjoyable golf movie that never got a really nice release

True Lies - in a hundred years when Cameron is done with Avatar 46, he'll oversee a restoration and full blown decent HD release of True Lies. You know. The one he promised 6 months after the original DVD was released 20 years ago

I'm hoping for 4K blu-ray:

-Pitch Black
-Chronicles of Riddick
-Riddick

I still admire these movies.

I've been wanting to rewatch Cast Away. That would probably look gorgeous in 4k. Put me down for one.

Fright Night 2

I know it's a cheesy movie but some if not many, have a warm spot for it.

Now you know damn good and well they're going to release a set that includes all three of them and they won't be available separately for a long time.

From my original list, still waiting for:

Barfly (Region A)
The Year My Voice Broke
Flirting
The Station Agent
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover
Pink Floyd: The Wall

Adding:
Biloxi Blues
Pumpkin

I was going to add Dagon, but I see it's already out. Just silly expensive. Is that typical with "Vestron Video Collector's Series?"

There must be rights issues with Quick Change, the hilarious Bill Murray comedy. It's disappointing no one across the globe has issued it on BD.

My uncle bought me the BR set several years ago and I haven't opened it yet. I always admired the films but they just aren't something I think of when looking for something to watch. I keep them because they are too important to get rid of. One day I'll have to watch them hopefully before the 4K comes out.

With the recent release of Dragnet, I'm down to just a few I'd like to see in HD.

Although not historically accurate Bugsy was a fun movie and should be in HD
Pearl Harbor, while not a great movie, the longer directors cut does make it more real hence needs to have it's own HD release.
Timeline is another guilty pleasure movie I wouldn't mind upgrading
True Lies never got the upgraded release promised 20 years ago. I think it's time.

I don't think True Lies has even gotten a blu-ray release. WTF?

A U.S. release for this
