I've dreaded this day for a long time.
I'll be watching No Time for Sergeants and A Face in the Crowd sometime soon in tribute. I never stop watching The Andy Griffith Show, though, so my viewing of that will continue as scheduled.

I'd like to get the Columbia Pictures pre-Code set, but those TCM-exclusive sets never ever go on sale.

Who the dick says that?
|How do you sort your DVD/Blu-ray/(insert video format) collection? (6) | Posted on July 1, 2012, 7:48 p.m.|
|F. By format, then by release date. However, I separate the following DVD lines with spine numbers: Criteiron/Eclipse, Dragon Dynasty, Fox Film Noir, Fox Studio Classics, and Paramount's Centennial Collection. Those are, of course, sorted by spine number.|

Criterion has the rights to Foreign Correspondent, so I'm sure it'll come eventually.
Oh good lord, I completely forgot that they have the rights to the Castle Hill titles. Probably since they've taken so goddamn long with them. >_>

Well then. I had assumed that Warner was letting Universal borrow North by Northwest because they themselves weren't planning on doing anything further with Hitchcock on blu-ray. Now I'm just baffled.
I guess this just means that we're straight up not getting The Wrong Man or Foreign Correspondent on Blu-ray, as I just cannot see Warner giving those individual releases.
Still, totally stoked about getting this set.

|Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Collection - July 31 (13) | Posted on June 9, 2012, 6:42 p.m.|
Wow, I forgot about The Prince & the Showgirl. Marilyn is amazing in that one. Maybe my favorite performance of 1957. For reals.
I can't figure out why Warner didn't release that one on Blu-ray when My Week With Marilyn came out.
|Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Collection - July 31 (8) | Posted on June 8, 2012, 12:34 p.m.|
Some Like It Hot is the only one I've seen in that collection and I liked it. I've heard of 3 others (GPB, 7YI, HTMAM) but the package looked good enough for Marilyn fans. Part of me want to jump on this but part of me is unsure I won't like the others. Maybe I'll rent the 3 movies before I get the package?
The Seven Year Itch is a Billy Wilder film and GPB is a Howard Hawks film. That should be enough, I think.
|Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Collection - July 31 (6) | Posted on June 8, 2012, 10:34 a.m.|
I don't think I need this. I already have Some Like it Hot and The Misfits on BD, and all the rest on DVD. I haven't even watched all of them yet!
|Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Collection - July 31 (4) | Posted on June 8, 2012, 10:22 a.m.|
|They should have like an additional gift set or something with literally every movie in which Marilyn appeared for Fox, including All About Eve, As Young as You Feel, Let's Make It Legal, Love Nest, O. Henry's Full House, and We're Not Married. I already bought all of those on DVD, so why wouldn't I pay an extra ~$50 to get them on Blu-ray? I fully realize I'd be the only one, but still.|
|Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Collection - July 31 (2) | Posted on June 8, 2012, 10:01 a.m.|
|I'm honestly not even the least bit upset about having to rebuy Some Like It Hot and The Misfits.|
I just wish they would've thrown all the Fox titles in there. I'm actually really surprised that Niagara isn't in. Hopefully there'll be another volume.

|Anyone remember that show "Tales from The Crypt" (live action)? (19) | Posted on June 7, 2012, 6:26 a.m.|
I guess it's a good show but the cryptkeeper's puns are dumb. It really seems like all the cryptkeeper's lines are written by a 9 year old.
You have some of the worst opinions I've ever seen in my life.
|Anyone remember that show "Tales from The Crypt" (live action)? (16) | Posted on June 6, 2012, 12:31 p.m.|
For those who enjoyed the show the first time, were you a kid, teen or adult?
I watched the show as a kid (I think it was actually still on the air, so I was pretty young). I loved the hell out of it, even though the Crypt Keeper scared the holy hell out of me.

If you don't have any, you're kinda screwed, as all of the Rhino sets are going OOP, with Vol. 7, 11, and 12 being the only ones that remain in print.
That said, I'd avoid any sets with a season 1 episode, since nobody likes those.
