thanks agent of doom. I checked out the Laserdisc Database as well and nearly cried when I discovered that the special features on the Criterion laserdiscs were really good in fact a lot of the dvd's of these titles are vanillas! I guess the studios cannot put these special features on the dvds for legal reasons ie MGM cannot put the audio commentary from the Criterion DVD of Silence of the Lambs on to their se or ue!
i wish they were but i just check'em out on ebay. and go from there.your right about the welles films they should put the magnificent ambersons from LD to dvd as well.
Criterion should do an SE of Touch Of Evil! They have already done a great job on all the Welles stuff so far. Why have they not done Bout De Souffle? Did I mention El Cid? Ha Ha!

Is there a site where I can see what Criterion put on their laser discs? They do not have this info on their site.

I ALMOST bought that the other day, thanks for the info.
There was Annie Hall Criterion for LD, I kinda hope they release it for dvd as well. Although it would be hard to add any S/F since Woody will probably not approve them.

I'm not sure on the LD spec either 'Wink
There's a Taxi Driver CE due very soon.
with Blade Runner coming out soon remastered I dont think there will be a Criterion for that any time soon..

I'd buy Ghostbusters and The Game though.. Happy

i think some old criterion LD's should be released on DVD which do you think deserve to be reinstated into the criterion collection. like they should put these out.
Lawrence of Arabia
Blade Runner
The Game
citizen kane
taxi driver
close encounters of the third kind
i think that should be done since the current versions could be improved.

any thoughts????
