Star Wars trilogy box sets coming next year?
Time

It would be great to have a nine film box set of all three trilogies. The unfortunate truth is that the unaltered versions of the original trilogy will never be released (most likely something George Lucas made clear when selling his property to Disney in the contract). It would be nice is Lucasfilm color corrected the Special Editions to remove the color timing issues that were introduced in the original 2004 DVD release.

What Disney business executive would be crazy enough to agree to that deal?

The Keep (1983) 35mm Preservation

I guess nobody wants this 35mm preservation because it’s not a disney movie. who cares if it hasn’t made it past vhs and laserdisc. we only preserve stuff that is out on dvd and bluray because the color or something is off.

There “are” plenty of people interested… but who do you send the money to? What guarantee is there that this is legit? Like I posted before, if the person who has the negative/film print would post pictures of the film reels and some shots of the negative (to confirm that it is THE KEEP), that would increase likelihood in people donating money.

A Kickstarter or GoFundMe wouldn’t hurt either.

There is someone on MySpleen who has been doing 35mm transfers to digital… if they could be contacted to look into this (to verify things), that could help too.

I was being a bit sarcastic, and yes we should verify this, I was just ranting that there a plenty of disney projects going on taking donations that have yet to come to any kind of release, many of which have been ongoing for eons.

80's cartoons on DVD....bad aliasing (jaggies)!
Time

yeah, I own a number of mill creek dvds and some other oddbll “value brands” they all have that sort of problem. Mill creek doesn’t do any sort of quality work. I swear they’ll take multi generational video masters from the prehistoric age and capture them. no high quality releases from that company, just stuff that would otherwise not exist.

The November sale is here again and again I’ve gone a little overboard. I just ordered…

12 Angry Men
Barry Lyndon
Bottle Rocket
Brief Encounter
The Exterminating Angel
His Girl Friday
The Princess Bride

A friend and I might also go halvesies on the Zatoichi boxed set, since our access to the series dies with Filmstruck at the end of the month.

His Girl Friday is great fun.

Movies you watch every Halloween
Time

Where to start, for a really creepy oldie, it’s hard to beat City of the Dead, and it’s hard to skip the original House on Haunted Hill. On the lighter side Little Shop of Horrors is a good option if you have kids, or a decent sense of humor. More recently, aka color era, I’ll probably re-watch Rituals 1977(sort of along the lines of deliverance) since it’s apparently getting a restoration for bluray.
