Movies you've always wanted to see, but can never find

I'm not talking about lost or locked-up films (i.e,The Day The Clown Cried) but movies that are indeed somewhere out there, but just never seem to be available for you to see. Some of mine:

Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974)-One of the first acclaimed "Foreign artsy" films that I ever heard of...And still have yet to find it.
Roaring Fire (1982)-Said to be one of the coolest Japanese action films. The closest I've seen of this is on youtube, too bad the audio ends up going terribly off synch.
Jaded (1998)-You can easily find naughty screengrabs of this online. But finding the actual movie is a different story.
Machen in Uniform (1931)-An early LGBTQ entry. On youtube, but no English subs.
Small Time (1996)- I remember running into this movie on cable in the late 90s and, from what I got to see, it looked entertaining. On youtube, but it's blocked for me.
Urgh! A Music War (1981)-Yes, I know of the archive release. But rather than a blind buy, I still have my fingers crossed for a TCM Underground showing.
Demon Pond (1976)-On youtube, but no subs. Desperately needed just so I can FINALLY complete this list: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+deuce+top+20/

Jaded is on DVD, you can buy it from Amazon.

Celine and Julie Go Boating is on Blu, but it's Region B.

Or do you mean like, on a streaming service or on cable?

Yeah, mostly streaming or cable. The more convenient, the better. And since my buying of movies has significantly decreased, this mostly rules out blind buys. But I could make an exception for Jaded And no, I’ve yet to own a R0 Blu player.

Charro! and Change of Habit. I have seen 29 of Elvis' 31 films and these are the only two I have not seen. I have all the others, but can never find them. As bad as most of his movies were, I feel I need to suffer through these two to make myself complete.

That's the original PAL DVD release artwork. Non anamorphic. I still have it but haven't watched it in ages but I remember it was entertaining but not all that.

Here's the current one.

Oh, you definitely need to see those. I saw CHARRO! when it came out (the only Elvis film I saw on the big screen in its original release) and I have CHANGE OF HABIT on VHS. (It has since come out on DVD.)

CHANGE OF HABIT is quite fascinating. It has some really good stuff in it but also some really bad stuff. If it only had a better, edgier director and if only Elvis's heart had been in it. But he seems so disinterested throughout. Mary Tyler Moore, though, is very good as a conflicted nun. I wonder if she ever talked about the making of this movie.

North-the 90s kids movie starring Elijah Wood. I only want to watch it because I still remember to this day how much Siskel and Ebert hated the movie.

Re: Movies you've always wanted to see, but can never find

I didn't see what was so awful about that movie- it wasn't great, but entertaining.

I never saw "Masterminds" from 1997, where Patrick Stewart takes over a military school. It was never on laserdisc or DVD, Vudu has it for rent but only in 'foolscreen' (remember that?) so don't want to waste my money on that.

Heard about a movie in the 70s called "20th Century Oz" that sounds like a disco version of Wizard of Oz (sorta like The Wiz) but can never find that- ditto for "All This and World War II" which had Beatles songs on the soundtrack.

I have never been able to find either one on home video or DVD. I'm sure they have, but I haven't had any luck finding them. I have read that Elvis and MTM didn't get along at all and when they were breaks in filming, he would go to his trailer and she would go to hers. By this time Elvis was ready to be done with movies and wanted to get back out on the road touring.

If you're even remotely a fan of this era of music (after the brief punk explosion, but before the rise of MTV), then it's most certainly worth a blind buy. I absolutely guarantee you'll become a fan of several bands that you'll see for the first time in this movie (for me it was Chelsea, The Members, and John Ottway).

I was fortunate to have picked up the Anamorphic (DVD) Release from Amalgama (Ukranian Company) over 10 years ago. I haven't been able to find another copy since.

As far as films I'd like to see and haven't been able to find, there are a small handful of CATIII films I've been wanting to see but only had VCD (or DVD) Releases, which are now out of print.

Her Vengeance (1988)
Underground Banker (1994)
Prostitute Killers (2000)
Diary of a Serial Killer (1995)
Horrible High Heels (1996)
Love To Kill (1993)
