Re: Goodfellas 25th Anniversary Edition (05/05/15)

It's simply retarded as hell that these warnings are cluttering up every commercial disc you buy (except those from Criterion or from other countries), because the people who do make copies ignore...

Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

I own a copy of the Canadian Blu, and it looks great, plus has all of the bonus material from the earlier U.S. DVD.

Re: The Official Twilight Time Blu-ray Thread

I have corresponded with them about this, and apparently it has to do with a couple of special deals recently (free autographed copies of BREAKING AWAY and THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE) which they...

Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

There is an HD master for THE BLACK HOLE which looks quite good, but I suspect it was produced for streaming and not for Blu-ray release, unless perhaps Disney releases it via their Movie Club. THE...

Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

VALLEY OF GWANGI has had an HD master produced (looks rather nice), but it is a Warner Bros. title, so TT is not going to release it.

Re: Casino: 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray in the U.K. on 5/4

If this had a Scorcese commentary, I'd double-dip. Otherwise, couldn't care less.

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2015 Blu-ray releases

I totally concur. This could have been an awesome movie if not for the dialog. And I wasn't keen on the design of the Aladar's head -- looks too square or something. But the lemurs are great, the...

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2015 Blu-ray releases

You guys didn't get this on Blu yet? We've had it in the U.S. for many years and it looks just fine. That isn't meant to be a brag, just a statement of fact.

Re: The Official Mill Creek Sony Firesale Appreciation Thread

At least the Sony material looks pretty excellent even if released through Mill Creek, which says to me that MC isn't tampering with the transfers Sony is providing. MR. SARDONICUS, SHIP OF FOOLS,...

re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - #2, but we try harder

Ah, but the problem is that catering to the lowest common denominator is a winning strategy. The government, education and media have dumbed-down our young people so much during the past couple of...

Re: Blu-ray release announcements - Part IV

More importantly, it's the crappy (IMO) American remake, which is so inferior to the 1988 Dutch version it makes my head spin. Why TT even wanted this is beyond me.

Re: The Official Severin Blu-ray Thread

I hate seeing small companies like Severin lose their grip on the catalog market. HORROR EXPRESS was a very nice release, but they let HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD slip through their fingers. They never...

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2014 Blu-ray releases

The UK edition of ALADDIN, complete with audio commentary and lengthy documentary, looks stunning, and is region-free. Why wait?

The UK editions of HERCULES and 101 DALMATIANS are equally...

Re: Your Blu-ray wish list / "When will _______ be on Blu-ray?"

Looking back, I'd love to see even a DVD release of THE BURNING SEASON I(1994), that superb film starring Raul Julia as Amazon Rainforest activist Chico Mendes. This had a miserable VHS release, and...

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2014 Blu-ray releases

I predict that we will see all but a couple of the missing animated features in 2014. We'll get TARZAN and HERCULES and maybe ALADDIN, singly. We will get all of the omnibus films at once on three...

Re: Walt Disney Animated Classics 2014 Blu-ray releases

I found POOH a nice release, although looking pretty scrubbed of grain. The DAY FOR EEYORE short on the same disc, which wasn't DNR'd, is a great comparison demo of what extant grain does to help...

Re: High Res Movie Posters

I pay for the digital posters on the site, and when I want full-size posters, I pay for them on various poster sites and for their frames.

Stop being an accusatory bastard.

Re: Slant Magazine's 100 Greatest Horror Films Of All Time

About a third of these aren't even "horror films." They are thrillers which have scary/intense moments.

I don't even consider "slasher" films like TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE to be "horror." "Terror"...
