Odd, I've heard nothing of these releases. Are they Special Editions or just marked down in price versions of the snapper/flippers?
Tom
Batman and Batman Returns will be arriving to coincide with Batman Begins hitting DVD now...
Batman/Batman Returns
Where are my Tim Burton "Batman" SEs? I thought for sure they'd release them for the theatrical release of "Batman Begins".
I'd also like to see the original versions of "Batman Forever" and "Batman & Robin" they were apparently a bit darker than what was released.
rocko's modern life
Batman(Adam West)
The Green Hornet(Bruce Lee)
and some sets of the japanese stuff I grew up on as a kid:

Eighth Man
Prince Planet
Astro Boy(The 60's version)
Space Giants
Johnny Sokko And His Flying Robot

and my favorite...
ULTRAMAN(the 60's version)...subtitled and uncut!(well i can dream,can't I?)

Are you sure about those? I wonder what "deleted scenes" might be included with Twilite Zone...

Good luck on those. They're both in a vice of legal entanglements. I do think we'll see Batman before The Twilight Zone though. If I was a betting man I'd guess if the Twilight Zone does come out, it would be bare bones only.
Total Recall NC-17 version

Superman II: Donner cut

I guess I'm the thread killer. Whenever I have the last post, and no one responds within 3 days, it goes to the big thread in the sky. Laugh

Anyways, I bought "Blade Runner", if you ignore the dream it's actually better than the original. And to me, the video quality isn't all that bad (I don't have all that fancy Hi Def stuff so it may be less apparent to me). So if they announce the 3 discer coming out, you can thank me (see above post, I have that much bad luck, lol)
The remaining Beatles films ("Help!", "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Let It Be" ) MMT isn't the greatest, but it would be nice to have them all up on the shelf.

Blade Runner, that's pretty mess up!
I've been planning on picking up "Blade Runner" (they never seem to have it at my store) but I know that as soon as I do, the rights will be settled and the new 3 disc definitive will come out (or be announced).

The Blade Runner 3 disc edition is never going to happen read this.

When "Blade Runner" was being shot in the early 1980's, Bud Yorkin, a veteran television comedy producer, and Jerry Perenchio, now the C.E.O. of Univision, were the film's bond-completion guarantors.

When the film went over budget, by contract they assumed ownership of the film.  They hated the film, had bitter disputes with Mr. Scott and tried to take it away from him altogether.

The studio release, in 1982, contained superfluous narration and a tacked-on rosy ending. Mr. Scott removed both when he was allowed to make a "director's cut" in 1992, but it was, by his own account, a rush job.

Three years ago, Mr. Scott announced that he was working on a three-disc box set, which would offer all the versions of the film, including a new and polished director's cut with previously unseen footage and scads of bonus features. Then, at the end of 2001, Warner Brothers, which was planning to distribute the discs, pulled the plug.

It did so, according to a producer who worked on the project, because Mr. Perenchio gave no sign that he would let them be released.

Mr. Perenchio, speaking through an assistant, had no comment on the situation. (Warner Brothers still sells the 1992 "director's cut," though the picture quality is mediocre.)"

The ownership rights are so messed up that I really have no idea exactly what that could include or how much better of a transfer they might be able to achieve without further permissions.

If you are so inclined, you might want to sign a petition to Jerry Perenchio about letting the full BR:SE happen.

I personally think it is more likely to piss him off than have any positive effect.

How come? Who holds the rights? because I´ve been holding on to buy it, just waiting for that special edition to come out

Then check out this article on He-Man.org


The classic He-Ma was great, but the more recent version that was canceled on Cartoon Network was by far, much better in terms of action.  Whatever the case, I plan on purchasing both when they are released on DVD.

As for some shows I'd like to see on DVD, I go with:

Third Watch
Bionic Six
M.A.S.K
L.A. Law
Werewolf (Fox Series)
Seaquest DSV

Just to name a few.

Smurfs
We just got the Nicktoons channel around here. Rocko, Animaniacs, Kablamm, you name it.
We've had He-Man for ages, but it stopped at volume five for some reason (presumably because sales weren't good enough).

You guys got that over there? I thought it was so low budget and everything that it was local only. The only one I only sorta remember had DeForest Kelley in it. I kept thinking it was weird he wasnt a starfleet doctor...hehehe

There seems to be a lot of call for a Rocko DVD collection. Maybe Paramount should listen. This isn't the only thread of its kind I've read this on.
Ed
The Practice
Picket Fences
Rocko's Modern Life - far superior to Spongebob IMO.
Tiny Toon Adventures
Animaniacs
Pinky and the Brain
Gargoyles S2&3
Big Wolf on Campus - fun little Canadian series

Season boxset releases of:
90's X-Men Animated Series
90's Spider-Man Animated Series
Batman Beyond - Excellent in it's own right
Aeon Flux - Paramount(?) will hopefully put this out to milk the release of the upcoming live-action feature.

Remastered anamorphic versions of:
Patlabor 1&2
Wings of Honneamise
Evangelion: Death & Rebirth
End of Evangelion
Tsui Hark's The Blade - receive HKL-esque treatment

Never been released on DVD:
Ringo Lam's School on Fire - receive HKL-esque treatment
pinky and the brain
rocko
kablam
For TV shows I'm still hanging out for a DVD set of "Ed". This show is awesome, and all four seasons on DVD would make my collection complete.

As for films, you can't go past Bladerunner in special edition form, but the rights holder isn't budging. Time to give him a bit of a shove, readers...
I want Lois and Clark on DVD. I am probably the only one, but I enjoyed the show. And to think of the features they could do...
I guess dreams do come true. I just hope The Wonder Years isn't stuck in pre-production or legal battles forever. The people demand The Wonder Years damnit.
The Wonder Years
X-Men Animated Series
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Pinky and the Brain!
I also would love to see the cartoon releases of Masters of the Universe. It pisses me off that the UK has every volume out and we get nothing. Anywho, I would also like to add Pinky & The Brian, Tiny Toons and Freakazoid and finally Friday the 13th the series.
A coupla good ones above, like Real Ghostbusters and Rocko, so I wanted to add Masters of the Universe since we're talkin cartoons.  But the real series I wanna see?  GET SMART  Great show!  I'm grabbin these as soon as whoever has the rights wisens up and releases these seasons

here is some new news for you.
The Wonder Years. I'm tempted to go ahead and buy the bootleg already, but I'm  trying to hold out for an official release.

I'd also like to see the X-Men animated series on dvd. I know they have some dvds already, but I'm talking about releasing the all the seasons on dvd.
The best (animated) tv show ever is Rocko's Modern Life.  It was amusing for kids, and there were numerous film and tv refrences for the older people.
The Real Ghostbusters!

Name a T.V. Program or Film That Should Be Released to DVD
Okay, here's a top for discussion...name one television program or film that should get a first time release to DVD, even if it is just an original aspect ratio transfer and trailer.

For me, as far as television goes, I'd like to see Fox release Space Above & Beyond and for Paramount to do the same for at least the first season of War of The Worlds.

For films, I'd like to see Rad and King Kong ('33), but I'm crossing my fingers that Warner pulls this one out just in time for Mr. Jackson's Xmas '05 opus.

Talk amongst yourselves...
