I'll be checking out Dust Devil & Imprint.

if you haven't seen (Sympathy for)Lady Vengeance or The Notorious Betty Page, I'd give 'em a look...

I didn't feel this warranted its own thread, but Josh Becker has posted on his website that a couple of old Super 8's will be re-released on DVD: Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except and Running Time.

I really love Running Time. It's shot in 16mm black and white and it's cut so that the movie looks like it's all one shot.

Anybody check out what Criterion's got in the pipe for May?

Sansho the Baliff (Mizoguchi)
Army of Shadows (Melville unreleased in the US until last year)
Vengeance is Mine (Japanese crime drama)

And, drumroll please...a remastered two disc edition of "The Third Man!"

Wow, April and May are going to goddamn bankrupt me!

Well...if we really try kids..we might get those flame wars back on track again.

Yes, fanlings, there is going to be a 2 disc 'Special Edition' released this summer. You know why? 'Cause the 1 disc 'Normal Edition' has sold so well -- so maybe a little self-back-patting is in order for you guys. Way to keep her in the air.

It's too early to be sure what the Special Edition will contain, but here are some things we're going for:

NEW KEY ART.

Cast commentary -- assuming I can get a decent number of them in one room. They're very busy people, I'm happy to say.

NEW KEY ART.

The region 4 goodies, obviously.

The Tam Sessions.

KEY NEW ART.

New Yub Yub, and Greedo shoots first. So does that kid outside the trading station, the pilot who destroyed Haven, and Kaylee. And Richard Dreyfuss goes INSIDE the mothership.

KEW RAT YEN.

An alternate ending, if you turn it off early.

Proof of the existence of a benevolent higher power -- uh, I mean, new key art.

Mice.


And honestly, what more do you want? Don't answer that, I already know and it's unseemly. But I'm pretty excited here. Back to work, -j.

Take my Yub,
Take Yub Yub,
Yub Yub tak the Yub from Meee...dichlorians....

NOW we're talkin. The Hero High cartoon is pretty much forgettable, but I did love the Filmation Shazam. And as I recall, the one blonde chick in the live action segments was pretty eye candy.

Hey guys, August Criterion just hit the deck and, drumroll please, our winners are:

"House of Games" -- I know the words "Mamet" and "Criterion" will give at least a few of you wood. It includes a commentary with Mamet and Ricky Jay.

"Cria Cuervos" -- A Spanish New Wave film which looks interesting (I might grab "Spirit of the Beehive" first)

And, finally:

"The Milky Way"

This is the one that has me screaming "YES!!!" I love Bunuel and I can't wait for this one. It's at their $30 price point too. This summer is going to be BRUTAL on my wallet!

That new Flash Gordon disc has more features than the movie-only disc I have so I'm not too broken up about the lack of stuff from the R2 release, though I would love to have the commentaries.

New and Upcoming DVDs

Postby bastard_robo on Thu Jun 07, 2007 4:14 am

If any of you are curious... this week and next week its TOHO mania on dvd.

Ghidra the three headed monster and Godzilla vs Monster Zero both come out on DVD thanks to CLASSIC MEDIA!

Then one of my all time favs finally hits Region 1 DVD..

FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD!

All are excellent movies for a fun night of watching... and are basicly the begging of the end of the Silver Age of TOHO...

Haven't heard of Cria Cuervos, have to check that out. But definitely, definitely get Spirit Of The Beehive.

As for The Milky Way it's Bunuel at his most surreal best. I think it's one of his most underrated movies.

I belive that Tokyo Shock has the rights for that one too.

They picked up a couple more of the non Godzilla toho films and are planning on releasing them by the end of next year.

Definitely on my shopping list is the new BFI three-disc compilation of the complete short films of Jan Svankmajer, taking in his career from 1964 to 2005. I think there's nearly 30 odd in total plus a documentry and an interview. Lots of rare stuff and a great overview of his brilliant animation.

Fucking Limeys. Here in America, we have to buy a two-disc set and a single disc to get it, and it doesn't have many extras. Why? Because Criterion has yet to drive Kino from its lands and hear the lamentations of its women. The sooner, frankly, the fucking better; I love little DVD labels and want to support them, but Kino smokes the pole.

I'm the producer of the BFI's Svankmajer set, so I hope you won't mind some gratuitous extra detail...

There are 27 shorts in total - all 26 from the official filmography (including his only music video and two MTV 'art breaks'), plus a bonus short, Johanes Doktor Faust, which was the first film Svankmajer ever worked on. Also, The Ossuary has both soundtracks - the original one that got banned by the Czech authorities and the radically different replacement one, so effectively that's a 28th short. (By comparison, even if you buy all the Kino discs, you only get 23 shorts, and just one version of The Ossuary).

All the shorts have been digitally cleaned up and are in native PAL transfers (the Kino discs are PAL-NTSC conversions). J.S.Bach Fantasy in G Minor, Svankmajer's only non-4:3 short, has been anamorphically enhanced for widescreen televisions (the Kino transfer is letterboxed, and has some hideous sound distortion that isn't an issue with us). We've also added more extensive subtitles than they've ever had before - not just dialogue, but also credits, onscreen text and even song lyrics where we felt they were relevant. This makes a big difference to titles like The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia, where you can now understand all the Communist posters and slogans.

There's a whole disc of extras, adding up to about two-and-a-half hours. The highlights are two documentaries, starting with the original 54-minute version of the Quay Brothers' The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer, reinstating 40 minutes of Svankmajer clips and analysis that were cut out when it was turned into a far better known 14-minute short. There's also the first English-friendly release of Les Chimeres des Svankmajer, a 58-minute French documentary that includes interviews with Jan and Eva Svankmajer and lots of examples of their work across multiple media (painting, collage, sculpture, even their legendary house), including clips from most of the features.

And we also dug up a 9-minute interview that he gave to Czech TV about his fine art, and a 5-minute compilation of the special effects he created for mainstream Czech features when he was banned from making his own films. I could only afford to license one title, so I picked Nick Carter in Prague (1977), as that has an amazing Little Shop of Horrors-style man-eating plant with a tongue that's as distinctive as a signature. And a 56-page book has loads of background info.

If you want to know anything else, please let me know - as you've probably guessed from all that breathless enthusiasm, we're rather proud of this release, which was a genuine labour of love all round.

Our introduction to Maurice Moss (Richard Aoyade, middle), the Steve Urkel of the new millennium, his pal Roy and the new gal, Jen as they have zany misadventures in their workplace. And since we won't know when NBC will put out the American version, this is as good as any. :D

Good news and bad news.

Bad news-"The IT Crowd" Season 1 DVD has been pushed back to FEBRUARY. I'm guessing it's because the American version may start airing around that time.

Good news-"Love-Com", a Japanese Rom-Com about love between the tallest girl in school and the shortest boy in school will be released next spring in R1 DVD. The boy is played by Teppei Koike from WaT (Who looks a bit like David Tennant) and the other half, Eiji Wentz, has a cameo in the film. (Though I hope to hear of a R1 release of the "GeGeGe no Kitaro" movie starring Eiji at the same time....)

The film's leads with Crayon Shin-chan!

(It's probably the smile, but my God, you'd swear they were twins if one weren't Japanese...)

Huge 'Seinfeld' DVD boxed set in works

CNN.com wrote: LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- One of the most popular TV series of all time is about to go out with a bang -- again.

When "Seinfeld" went off the air in May 1998, its two-part finale scored huge ratings, with more than 75 million people tuning in. TV Land paid tribute to the celebrated sitcom about a neurotic New Yorker and his bumbling pals by airing no programming that night in the show's time slot, instead showing a photo of a closed office door.

Now, "Seinfeld" is about to end its complete-season run on DVD. Season 9, a four-disc set with all 24 episodes from its final season, will be released November 6 by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

That same day, consumers will be able to buy an elaborate boxed set with all nine seasons. "Seinfeld: The Complete Series" weighs in at 32 discs and carries a suggested list price of $283.95. That buys consumers not just all 180 episodes but also a wealth of bonus features, both electronic and physical.

The highlight: a 226-page coffee-table book filled with photos, quotes, trivia and personal reflections from star Jerry Seinfeld.

"When the show wrapped, the book, which had taken years to assemble, was privately shared with only the cast and crew," said Marc Rashba, VP marketing at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. "When we were launching the TV-DVD series sets five years ago, we loved it so much, but we took a look, and it was ridiculously expensive to put it out. Now, we reshaped and redesigned it, and we were able to make it happen. It's the first time the public will get to see it."

The book comes with a bonus DVD featuring a first-ever cast reunion round-table discussion with Seinfeld, co-creator Larry David and co-stars Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards. The hourlong discussion finds the cast and David together again on the ninth anniversary of the series finale.

Other special features in the boxed set are documentaries on all nine seasons, bloopers, deleted scenes, commentaries and more.

"We talked about this from the beginning, when we launched this," Rashba said. "We always knew we wanted to wrap up with something special."

From the start, Sony Pictures' "Seinfeld" DVD season sets were lauded for their innovative special features. Season 9 is no exception, including such novel extras as a restructured version of "The Betrayal," the notorious reverse-playing episode, shown going forward.

I love my Seinfeld DVDs (they make great christmas present ideas), but all along I knew they'd come out with a kick ass full set eventually.

Certainly no way I'll buy this definetive collection, but man it bet it'll look sweet...

BUMP

There are a few times I love working at Wal-Mart.

We now have DVD gift sets of films from the '50s-'70s. Each film is packaged with a photo book and a CD of music from the decade.

They are-
50s-Some Like It Hot, 12 Angry Men, Guys and Dolls
60s-West Side Story, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Graduate
70s-Carrie, Mad Max, Fiddler on the Roof
80s-When H@rry Met Sally, Moonstruck, The Sure Thing (I'm pretty baffled how that got in there...)

I know I'm going to pick up "Carrie" for myself.

Transformers DVD is blowing up:

The blockbuster hit from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, Transformers, is the year's top-selling week one DVD so far with North American sales reaching 8.3 million units since the title's debut on October 16, it was announced today by Paramount Home Entertainment.

The biggest original film of the year from director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg, in association with Hasbro, Inc., is also the best-selling DVD day one for the year with over 4.5 million units sold on Tuesday.

Additionally, the smash hit has exploded into the high definition market, selling over 100,000 HD DVDs its first day of release, rocketing past previous releases to become the best-selling day one high definition title on either format since their inceptions. Transformers has sold over 190,000 HD DVDs in its first week making it the fastest and best-selling week one release on either high definition format as well as the best selling HD DVD ever. The Transformers DVD is also the top-selling October DVD release in the history of the home entertainment industry.

"The performance of the 'Transformers' DVD and HD DVD has demonstrated the phenomenal success of this global franchise," said Kelley Avery, president, Worldwide Home Entertainment, Paramount Pictures. "We're happy to be kicking off the fourth quarter with a title that clearly shows home entertainment releases are still an event that drives consumers into stores—which is a win for both content providers and retailers."

Earning over $700 million at the global box office, the live-action feature film Transformers is the latest success in a worldwide franchise that has emerged as one of the most successful properties in action figure history, spawning numerous television series and comic books and a wealth of toys, games and other licensed merchandise. In 2007, Transformers has become one of the hottest properties for boys in a variety of categories, including toys, publishing, video games, apparel and back-to-school. Hasbro's licensing arm, HPG, has signed more than 250 licensees in 70 countries around the world.

The first live-action film based on the enduringly popular "Robots in Disguise", Transformers features the ultimate battle between good and evil, as the peace-loving Autobots seek to protect humanity from the evil forces of the Decepticons. The Transformers Special Edition two-disc DVD and HD DVD sets provide an incredible experience with an arsenal of bonus material that delivers excitement and fun for long-time fans, as well as for viewers who are new to the Transformers universe. Further, the HD DVD includes a host of highly advanced web-enabled features that will continue to roll-out through the rest of the year.
