No, it's still owned by Warner, and they have a pretty crappy record when it comes to releasing the silents in their collection -- a source of constant irritation to me. Unless you count the recent...

Since Joan and L'Avventura are both Janus titles (and not StudioCanal), there should be no reason that Criterion would ever lose distribution rights to them. And neither of them are in particular...

Really?! I actually find Potemkin fairly entertaining. I mean, the Odessa Steps sequence is genuinely exciting, the film itself is pretty short and fast-paced, and it's probably Eisenstein's least...

Same here.

EEz28, you might want to double-check your order online. BFI should appear as part of the title. If it does, then you should definitely contact CD-Wow to get this sorted out. If not,...

You're missing my point. The only reason it's a problem is that you yourself keep insisting on posting the exact same information in each thread.

Can't you just let two of these threads die and...

I don't think Savant bothers with stars himself. If you visit his reviews through his own portal, he never bothers. I suspect that some DVDTalk editor adds them later, guessing at how much Savant...

Again, just go with the R1 Anchor Bay. It's in the correct 1.33:1 aspect ratio, offers the preferred German soundtrack, and boasts another commentary with Herzog. I believe it's still available...

No, Tabu is silent with a synchronized score (and a few sound effects). It uses title cards and intertitles for dialogue -- though the dialogue is pretty sparse, as I recall. I think it's a superb...

Correct! I've never been entirely sure why Anchor Bay opted for the title it did. Herzog himself has been very clear about his preference, and it's even listed as Every Man... in Maltin's guide.

Have you not bought any of the American silents that Kino has released? Most of them were transferred in NTSC rather than ported over from PAL. I'm thinking particularly of the Griffith films, the...

I'm not a big fan of The Jazz Singer as a movie. (I'd probably give it a C myself.) But if both Newsweek and EW are focusing solely on the lack of extras that contextualize the use of black-face,...

Perhaps Svet was just using "my generation" loosely to refer to master filmmakers currently working and "distinguished" to mean "at the peak of their creative powers." If so, I'm inclined to agree. ...

Fantastic news, Kevin. (This and the release of "In Rainbows" have made me one happy camper, media-wise, for the past 36 hours.)
