Not me personally but I know there are at least several LD>DVD transfers.

Yeah, Ebay often has bootlegs made from the LD, (RCOM was never officially released on VHS even) but do any of them include the commentary or the supplements? This was one of best sets Criterion ever did, and it's loaded! They even did animated menus in CAV that could be replicated on DVD. I'd be willing to do a raw capture if nobody else has this.

Where were you in '77?

I've got it on DVDr -- two disc set -- one is audio commentary, the other is the film. I've been meaning to combine them into one disc.

I've never seen the film, but I have a raw capture of the special features from it ... text menus and stuff .... which was put on some other DVD I have.

I taped this off TV a long time ago. I swear it was WS, but I'm not sure. I'll have to find the tape.

Haven't seen this either but I've been wanting to. Unfortunately, Paramount has no interest in releasing it on DVD so I guess LD preservation is the only way to go.

Cashiers and OCP , are both your discs different? if so.... could we combine them?

This one has been done. I just recently traded for a copy. (Guy I traded with was not the capper...) Rudimentary but effective menu, nice capture, commentary on Audio 2, trailer... pretty much everything the LD had to offer...

I'm a relative newbie on this board and I'm not sure what protocol is here, but I'm not just posting this to say "I have this and you don't", if you take my meaning...

From the latest Criterion Collection newsletter....

This year at Criterion, we’ve had a lot of great releases, and we’re already looking forward to what 2007 will bring. There are many treasures in store for the new year, including some of our latest acquisitions, such as John Huston’s Under the Volcano, and titles from our laserdisc days, like Robinson Crusoe on Mars.

... the take home message is to sell your laserdiscs while they're still worth something!

Criterion Projects done: She's Gotta Have It, The Princess Bride, The Fisher King

In Progress Criterions: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (99% done), Taxi Driver (90% done), Citizen Kane (50% done), Othello (99.99% done)

Possibly coming next: Ghostbusters, The Magnificent Ambersons (the theatrical cut, a reconstruction according to Prof. Carringer's script analysis, and the colorized version)

That's great news that Criterion will be doing it again, since Paramount apparently doesn't give a damn about the movie. (And there shouldn't be any problems porting over the commentary and extras.) I'd still keep the Laserdisc for the cool jacket art, and to prove animated menus were around before DVD.
