Thanks for passing it along.

I'm not a rabid movie fan, particularly of old movies, but any time a company respects art by making it available to those who appreciate it...especially when there's not the level of demand to make it perfectly business savvy...well that's pretty damned cool.

These are going to make some incredible gifts.

I want a WIDESCREEN copy of this Steve Martin / Rick Moranis classic!<br><br>Who doesn't love My Blue Heaven, one of the most criminally underrated comedies in Steve Martin's oeuvre?<br><br>This was one of my favorites growing up, and I can quote almost every single line that Vinny / Todd speaks.<br><br>Please, Warners, give me a Widescreen My Blue Heaven!!!
April 20, 2009, 1:58 p.m. CST
...Ken Russell's The Devils?
April 20, 2009, 1:59 p.m. CST
...Black Belt Jones & Three The Hard Way (since I lost my friggin VHS that I recorded from Encore Action 5 years ago - the ONLY known uncensored version of this movie in existence!).

...and was VERY pleasantly surprised. I really wasn't expecting much in the way of quality, but the transfer was much better than expected. Between finally getting this and Howard The Duck in March, I have almost completed my guilty pleasure list. Now if only someone would release Max Headroom on DVD....

I'm not ordering jack shit from this overpriced DVD-R based scheme until my order includes TOO MANY WAYS TO BE NO. 1 and THE BLADE.
April 20, 2009, 2:44 p.m. CST
and give me my 2.35:1 version of THE KEEP. Thank you.
April 20, 2009, 2:54 p.m. CST
BTW harry my daily emails will continue on the magnet let the right one in front.
April 20, 2009, 3 p.m. CST
I thought harry posted this for some reason, though you having the balls to call out magnet on this stuff would set you apart from harry's lackeys.

I like the western titles, would like to see some noir titles, but won't be paying $20 for any of these titles. I wouldn't pay $20 for any single-disc movie with no extras. I'll just catch 'em when they come on TCM.
April 20, 2009, 3:19 p.m. CST
Still patiently waiting for Elke Sommer to give those enormous rounded gas bags a run for their money... C'mon, Warners!
April 20, 2009, 5:20 p.m. CST
Yeah, go right ahead, but right now I'm more stoked to see Transformers 2 than any of those. Rocketeer and Delicatessen are on DVD, what else do we need?

I too hope it succeeds.
April 20, 2009, 5:48 p.m. CST
What do you want? I agree completely with you... I feel gypped for buying the Blu-Ray with the shitty subtitles, but the company released the correct version. The only thing they aren't doing is offering refunds, which sucks, but what will an article about the bad subs do now that it's released and they've already fixed the problem?
April 20, 2009, 6:35 p.m. CST
Nothing on the list really flips my trigger, but I still think this is a brilliant idea on Warner's part. (And my dad has ordered a pile of them.) <P> Here's hoping the other studios get a clue.
April 20, 2009, 7:07 p.m. CST
So much for globalisation.
April 20, 2009, 8:10 p.m. CST
I would LOVE to see some of those old obscure WB and MGM cartoons finally hit DVD...hell,I'd pay 50 bucks or more for a complete Tex Avery collection on DVD(uncensored of course...I wanna see racist squirrels in blackface damnit!)
April 20, 2009, 8:11 p.m. CST
Well... I defy anyone to watch that movie and not lose their minds trying to figure out who's better looking, Rob Lowe or Cary Elwes. Not that I'd throw Julian Sands out of a bed full of crackers either. That movie's got all kinds of *ehem* merit.
April 20, 2009, 8:20 p.m. CST
RANDOLPH SCOTT!!! Hoping other studios follow suit at some point. Though sometimes WB seems to own everything ever made before 1950.

As usual, the rest of the world has to wait to give the studios money. Boo-hoo.

I have been wanting the Glen Ford, Henry Fonda classic for a long time,it is hard to believe it is not on dvd.
April 20, 2009, 10 p.m. CST
Glenn Ford. A really great film.

Yeah, the widescreen titles are anamorphic, but it still seems too steep. Ten bucks each, and I'd snap up a couple of these.

to know if AICN actually condoned magnet's actions. Harry said jack shit even though he posted his referral link to the initial version on his DVD round up. No mention now a month later and he actually claimed magnet was doing great as a distributor even though they managed to royally piss off anyone who bought the DVD on the opening week and then literally said we were all idiots for caring about subtitles. Just a brick wall of silence is what I got from AICN except for moriarity did make it a big deal on his site. BUt when a ingrained site like AICN who has a wealth of industry insiders reading it as well as film geeks decides to not even mention that a new distributor fucked over a debut films DVD release and then said fuck off when we wanted a refund, well then that's just fucking sad. You acknowledging this is fine, I guess but the fact harry still stays silent is just disappointing.

seconded. How is this not out yet in a proper release with extras?
April 20, 2009, 10:39 p.m. CST
Man, if Warners owns the MGM library as well, ya think we might finally have the DARK SHADOWS movies?

Do it. A Dalton Trumbo film! Spencer Tracy, Irene Dunne and Van Johnson! For the love of all that is holy!
April 21, 2009, 2:45 a.m. CST
so I can replace my crap VHS copy. And they need to release all of the seasons of Maverick, and whatever cartoons they have.
April 21, 2009, 11:56 a.m. CST
gotta love it

Why can't Warner Bros. (or any other studio) print individual dvds of any movie in their vaults when they receive an order (assuming they already have digital copies/backups of their catalogs)? Would it be that costly, difficult, or labour-intensive?
April 22, 2009, 8:37 a.m. CST
I agree with some of the people though that they are a bit overpriced. Hopefully they'll have some extras as time goes on. Hey Leonard Maltin isn't doing anything, get him in for some commentaries. Hell you could even get Joe Bob Briggs for the horror and Sci-Fi movies.<BR><BR>As of now though there isn't much that interests me there. I will keep checking back though (and seeing as I'm a fan of a particular old time funnyman I may have something to look forward too next month). But yeah, you get those old (and uncut) cartoons up there (chronological volumes I hope?) and I am so there.

Would love to see Warners release some of the many classic Hong Kong movies they bought....including 'Pedicab Driver' with Sammo Hung & Lau kar-leung, Enter the Fat Dragon, and of course 'Dragon Fight' starring Jet Li & a very young Stephen Chow, in a martial arts adventure shot in the States....actually e-mailed Warners a few times ref some of the HK titles they own, but never got a response....maybe they'll release some of them this way

Or "The Decline of Western Civilization Part II"? I know they're probably not Warner's, but still want the DVD...or better...Blu Ray...released!
April 23, 2009, 3:25 a.m. CST
Given that the cunts at Warners buried it a couple of years ago. Wankers.
