Look for a disc from Lionsgate around Halloween. Myself, a lot of my old favorites from childhood have slowly but surely made their way to DVD, but I stiil want to see Rad released someday soon.

I would buy Howard the Duck as well, if just for the lame theme song. Lea Thompson was really hot too. Munchies is another fun movie I remember as a kid (I am 30 now)

As a related topic, Private School and Night of the Comet are finally coming to DVD tomorrow (R1)

Captain Sindbad  (This Byron "WAR OF THE WORLDS" Haskin old "saturday matinee" type movie was one of my favourites as a kid, and I'd love to see an, ahem, "official" release.)  It was a cheesy but fun adventure with rousing music and great imagery.  Spelling is correct by the way.

The most important dvd that needs to be made is The State Complete Series.

Two films that would shock movie lovers if they were ever officialy released:
1-Song of the South
2- The Day the Clown Cried (Jerry Lewis 1972). Completed but never distributed. Only seen by a small amount of people with the only copy sitting in Jerry's vault who refuses it to be shown. And why is that? Jerry plays a clown in a Nazi concentration camp, marching the Jewish children to the ovens. Jerry claims he was unsatisfied with the final edit (he also wrote the screenplay and directed). Maybe it was last minute cold feet for a movie that was surely going to be controversial and a complete departure from his other films. Supposedly only exhibited at the Cannes film festival that year. Will we finally get to see this when Mr. Lewis passes away? I predict a 2025 release ( 80th Anniversary of the end of WW2 ) in a format that does not exist yet

It is about time Disney released Song of the South! I want a 2-3 disc of El Cid! Now that Criterion are releasing If I want to see Warner put their money where their mouths are ie the Digital Bits forum a few months ago and release O'Lucky Man this year with some extras! If Blade Runner 4 or 5 disc isnt out by Xmas there will be hell to pay! And dont get me started on what should be done to mark the 30th anniversary of Star Wars!

Her's my list:

Greg Araki's The Living End

Gus Van Sant's Mala Noche

Derek Jarman:
Caravaggio
Derek Jarman's Blue - I won't hold my breath for this one, lol!  It's just a blue screen with sounds and dialogue.  I haven't seen it but I've heard good things.

Terence Davies:
Trilogy
Distant Voices, Still Lives - His masterpiece IMHO.
The Long Day Closes

Lars von Trier's Europa (AKA Zentropa) Another masterpiece!

Some of these must be available in R2 versions so I may just have to invest in an all-region dvd player.

Just thought of two.
I've never seen Night of the Creeps, and really want to. Honestly, I'll just buy it, so any region will do.

Also, I want The Sentinel, the '70s horror flick, in widescreen. I don't even need any extras.

I just remembered another one that I would love to see on DVD:

Dicken's Little Dorrit - It's 360 minutes long and it's excellent.

Glad To Be Here in Wishland
Now I know that my "Last Summer" post should have started here.
Could have saved you all and me a lot of grief. Very interesting choices. What do you think of the "Poltergeist"-nice picture, but how about the scarcity of extras. Would love to see Spielberg do just one commentary.

"The Day The Clown Cried" (Jerry Lewis)-the stories on that one are legendary-noted in many Lewis biographies. I would be happy just to see this in a theatre.

My "Holy Grail" (besides Last Summer) is Welles' "The Other Side of the Wind." This may be the year-Peter Bogdanovich has been working on this for years. he made a personal promise to Welles that he would finish it.

Thanks

Freebie and the Bean was a favourite of mine years ago, hope it gets an uncut release and no word yet on The Gazebo which no Hitchcock fan should be without.
