Top DVDs you most want to see released
« on: October 21, 2006, 05:23:25 PM »
Given the tens of thousands of DVDs that have been released I'm interested if there are movies people want on DVD that haven't been released.  Here are my top 4.

1.  Wizards of the Lost Kingdom (a Bo Svenson fantasy movie from the 80's)
2.  Yor (I've never seen this movie, but I've heard its hilarious)
3.  Sammy's Super T-Shirt (This is a movie that I saw went I was about 4 or 5 years old and it is probably the first movie I ever remember watching.  Its about a kid who has a t-shirt with a tiger on it and it gives him superpowers.  I don't know a single other person who has ever even heard of this movie, so I doubt it will ever get released on DVD, but you never know.  I know that its from the UK though, so maybe some of you guys from the UK have heard of it.)
4.  Tough Guys (starring Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster)

I don't want anyone to think that because of the bizarro top three that I listed that I'm expecting people to list only really obscure movies.  And if this is a duplicate of another thread, just let me know and I'll move my post there.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie  (rereleased so I don't have to buy one on ebay for $100 or buy a crappy bootleg one)
I really do like pie.

Maybe Rhino will release it or Anchor Bay, they tend distribute some interesting movies.  I don't remember what studio released it at theaters though.

Hamlet, directed by Kenneth Branagh.  I think they are working on it, but hurry up already.  It was shot on 70mm film, vhs doesn't do it any justice.  70mm on vhs is like a thumbnail of the Sistine chapel.  Hamlet is up there as one of my favorite films but I can't watch it because I no longer have a working vcr.

It's worth that much? Woo-hoo!  ;D

I would like a few classic films to be released:

Once Upon a Honeymoon, with Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers.
The Lady Killer, with James Cagney.
Five Graves to Cairo, directed by Billy Wilder.

And I know it's coming but...

Blade Runner: Special Edition.

Blade Runner: Special Edition.

Have you seen a release date for it?  I'm all about some Blade Runner, even though I think I've fallen asleep during it the past couple of times I've tried to watch it.

According to Empire magazine, the new remastered version that's just come out is only on sale for a few months before the special edition arrives in the spring.

Good old Ralph Bakshi.  Honestly, I can't watch his movies...they kinda creep me out.

I'm not sure of any movies I'd like to see released on DVD.  But there are plenty of TV shows and specials that I would grab on DVD if ever released.

Batman (tied up in studio limbo - Fox owns the show, but Warner owns the character)

WKRP in Cincinatti (music rights issues have kept this one from being released)

Any early Comedy Channel shows (Sweet Life with Rachel Sweet, Higgins Boys and Gruber, Night After Night with Allan Havey) (big longshot that we will ever see these shows on DVD)

Star Wars Holiday Special (I already have an old bootleg of this, but this should be released with all kinds of special features and whatnot.)

Gemini Man (not holding out much hope for this one either, although they have shown some of these episodes on Sci-Fi Channel in the past. Maybe if Universal ever does a 70's Sci-Fi themed series of DVD releases, this one could come out)


They already announced one of my all-time wants - Saturday Night Live Season 1 will be out in November (with other seasons to follow hopefully).  And I picked up another off my wishlist earlier this year - Just Say Julie volume 1.  So maybe there is hope on the others.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie  (rereleased so I don't have to buy one on ebay for $100 or buy a crappy bootleg one)

Maybe Rhino will release it or Anchor Bay, they tend distribute some interesting movies.  I don't remember what studio released it at theaters though.

I would think that Rhino or Anchor Bay would have the same problem that Rhino has with all the other MST3K releases.  They would not only have to license the movie itself, but also This Island Earth, from Universal.

My personal wish for this is for a 2 disc Criterion release with outtakes, deleted scenes, behind the scenes, a retrospective documentary about MST3K, and two commentaries - one from Mike, Kevin, and Trace in character done over the host segments, and another from as many MST3K alumni as they can get to discuss the making of the film and the writing process.

I think the only place you can get series two of Twin Peaks is from Spain, oddly enough.

I know, on vhs. I have those (Ta very much, Ebay) but it'd be easier if it was put on small little discs. On one side I hear that the reason for the delay is legal issues and the other I hear David Lynch wants to perfect the transfer, sound and extras. That might be true because Season one was a beautiful transfer.
