New Editions of OOPS Movies
Today TVSHOWSONDVD.COM announced the May 22nd release of a new R1 edition of the TV Mini-series "Roots" with a suggested price of $60. Previously you would have to spend $100 and up on Ebay if you could find it. Some other recently announced new editions in R1 include:

The Fabulous Baker Boys- Out Now
Apartment Zero- March 20
Phantasm- April 10
Black Sunday (Mario Bava)-Part of a box set for April
Fletch- May 1
Scarface (1931)-May 22
Salo (Criterion)- Coming this year

Still many other OOPs titles going for big bucks that I hope will be re-released, My wish list :

ALLIGATOR
BALL OF FIRE

MST3K:TM is begging for a SE. Universal has no idea what they have on their hands.

Here, here, Gabe! The Phantasm set is one of the best purchases you can make for the price. Right now Amazon UK is selling it for £18.40, which isn't really a bad price considering what you get, but the set does go on and off sale quite a bit; I believe I paid around £12.99 for it through them myself a while back.

You can add Flash Gordon as another title that is begging for a special edition, R1 release from Universal, and I'd bet dollars to donuts that we see one this summer when the new Flash Gordon series premieres on The SciFi Channel, though I'm perfectly happy with the R2 Silver Anniversary disc Momentum put out in 2005 that can be had for £4.97 (that's under $10!) right now. It amazes me that people are still paying many, many times over that on sites like eBay for the c**ptacular R1 disc that Image put out for a short time in 1998.
