What was/is your most anticipated release of 2012?

With the plethora of great titles that have come already (Jaws, the stellar Criterion releases, some of the classics like The Sting, Deliverance, Disney titles, etc...) to the ones on the very horizon (Indiana Jones Collection, E.T., The Dark Knight Rises, etc...)

What were or is still your most anticipated titles for the year 2012?

for me, definitely:

The Avengers: Easily the best superhero movie of the summer.
The Dark Knight Rises: Simply put Batman is awesome
Expendables 2: Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Willis, Norris, Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, 'Nuff said

Was:

Jaws finally getting a release, and a fucking handsome one at that.

Runner-up:

Death Wish 2/3/4 since I've been dying to get these in widescreen for years.

Is:

Halloween III - so underrated.

Runner up:

They Live

Re: What was/is your most anticipated release of 2012?

Rumors are that THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN (1971) will be released this year. If it is so, then that title takes it for most anticipated release. Followed by the Hitchcock set, THEY LIVE, remastered version of TOTAL RECALL, and Indiana Jones boxset. Oh, and for DVD-only releases, my Holy Grail search for IN SEARCH OF... seems to be over at last, as a Canadian release of that 1970s series will apparently be released in October. Beam me up, Scotty!

For most surprising releases, the Twilight Times Blus of NOTLD 1990 and ENEMY MINE sure take the cake. Not happy about having to shell out almost $80 for those two alone, but I never thought they'd see a 1080p release!

Re: What was/is your most anticipated release of 2012?

This would have been a good poll.

The Avengers, but also looking forward to my Hitchcock and Universal Classic Monsters sets.

Have Titanic pre-ordered, and want to get Singin' in the Rain and Lawrence of Arabia eventually.

Hoping to see TDKR before it leaves theaters so I can have an opinion on it.
