I would love to have MST3K:TM rereleased on DVD with the full treatment: deleted scenes, or even better, a full director's cut with all the scenes Universal made them cut out restored into the movie proper, a "Making Of" featurettes or at least some kind of retrospective with the cast and crew, and I know it would be ridiculous to have a commentary track, but dammit, I want one anyway!  If nothing else, it would be cool if they had a text commentary, like they have on the Star Trek movie DVD's.  And of course the original unMisted version of This Island Earth. 


This Island Earth came out in late August........ the unMisted version
http://www.amazon.com/This-Island-Earth-Jeff-Morrow/dp/B000FVQLKW/sr=1-1/qid=1164063383/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-9925255-3015351?ie=UTF8&s=dvd

As far as the MST3K movie goes, short of paying $120 bucks for it used, there is this if you can handle region 2 formats on your DVD player:

Movie-wise it's got to be "Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie"! I've heard that Universal had absolutely no interest in re-releasing it though since it was such a huge bomb. Here's hoping Rhino will pick up the slack...

My biggest DVD want however has got to be "Family Ties" (as in the TV show). If you can get ALF and Saved By the Bell on DVD you should be able to get one of the bes sitcoms of the 80's on DVD.

I would doubt that Rhino would even attempt that. It means getting the rights to 2 Universal properties for one disc. Indeed, I would love for them to send out a special edition with a clear copy of the deleted scenes, any stills they have, a commentary or two with EVERYONE, a pine scented SOL air freshener, anything and everything Movie related. But, alas, I think its not going to happen.  :'(

And even if it did, the cost to Rhino would be passes on to us, making it prohibitively expensive for all but us hardcore MSTies, not unlike the Freaks & Geeks DVDs, where they had to pay through the nose for all the music used in the series. Worth every penny, though.

I'm still waiting for Seasons 1 & 2 of Sifl & Olly to be released by GiantEvilCo (MTV/Viacom), and I'd love to have all the seasons of Let's Bowl released as a nice set, including the cable access episodes... I know, I know, there's the DAP (I know, I know, because I helped assemble the episodes for it), but it would be great if when Comedy Central kills off a perfectly perfect show they'd give us a DVD of it, instead of looking for new ways to merchandise the flipping unfunny as hell The Man Show. Oh wait, it's CC we're talking about here... morons.

I'm holding out for a proper box set of The Real Ghostbusters. Cartoon was WAY ahead of its time and lit up many a Saturday morning for me. They released a couple DVDs with 4 eps a piece on them, but I wanna watch 'em start to finish. :^)

I want a proper DVD release of Ghostbusters II, with deleted scenes, commentary, making of featurettes, and the whole works.  And the commentary should have Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, and Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver if they can get them.

I really don't understand this tendency for DVD companies to release the first season of a show and wait years (if ever) to release the consecutive seasons.  Its frustrating to say the least.

It is frustrating but think about it from their perspective. If the first season didn't sell well, why should they put more seasons out? When talking about older shows, a lot of people aren't going to run out and buy them. It's a niche market with some of the little known shows and it just doesn't make sense for them to keep making season sets when they aren't getting a return on thier investment.

So, who here would pay upwards of $300 to get the complete MST3K on DVD? :^)

Absolutely!

What I would like Rhino to do is if they do eventually manage to release enough of a season of MST3K, you'd be able to buy a special complete season box to put all the seperate discs in.

In another light, it doesn't make sense, because very often the first season isn't as good as the rest of the seasons.  Look at the Simpsons.  Most of the episodes in the first season just are not funny at all.  The only decent episode is "Bart The General".  And even that isn't anywhere near as good as some of the later episodes.

Yes, but that's your opinion. Someone else may find that season the best. Plus, studios have no way of knowing that you didn't buy it because it was the weakest season and intend to buy the others. All they are looking at is the ratio of how much they spent to produce it and how much return they got back on that investment.

Yes, but on the other hand, shut up and give me my Muppets DVDs.

The Giant Claw is one definitely one of the ONLY giant killer bird movies. I'd love to see it on DVD and also the original version of Mothra.

And a US release of the anime flick "Mind Game".

Never heard of that third one, but I would LOVE to see either of the first two on DVD.

On a related note, I'd like to know who the hell thought that it would be a good idea to use that flamingo-buzzard puppet for the scenes with the GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD!!!  Hehehehehehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!  (I just love saying those words).

The person responsible for that puppet should be given a medal for bravery...and then sentenced to death by firing squad.
