they said after the Wexner talk that they'll probably release it in 2013.

Criterion only has time now to respond to threats, like when that guy took Facebook hostage until they agreed to release Week End.

Maybe I missed something here, but how does one hold Facebook hostage? If it takes me holding Facebook hostage to get Hunter In The Dark released, then I'm in! :-k

How can I get someone to hold Facebook hostage and then neglect to release it?

Better yet, let's get hackers 'Anonymous' to spill the release slate for 2013.

Haha, that's pretty funny. I actually imagined someone shutting down Facebook until Criterion would release it. (I don't use Facebook)

Still a pretty persistent guy, and part of me wishes I would do something like that for Hunter In The Dark and Bandits Vs Samurai Squadron. Then again, if another year goes by of me constantly checking in on the 15th, I might have to. :lol:

THE DEAD is one of my most wanted on BD and would love a Criterion release with the added Kino documentary.

I saw this film in the theater (in London) during Christmas and since its debut on VHS I watch it every New Year as a tradition.

I post about how great this film is every year on other forums but I never get a reply.

Anyways, yes, this film has always been soft and golden to give a feeling of nostalgia (I believe)
It was that way in the theater.

I would love to add this film along with Polanski's FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS.

Old hat but, the remastered Lean films should be coming soon. TCM just showed a gorgeous version of Oliver Twist.

Well here's one; I love it, watch it every festive season as you do, and would kill for a Criterion BD. It's an astonishingly beautiful film.

It's a favorite for me too. We do have a thread about the saga of the Lionsgate release. Lionsgate licensed Kicking and Screaming and Naqoyqatsi to Criterion, so I suppose anything's possible (though it seems maybe they didn't allow Criterion to renew the rights on Chungking Express -- if they still have them). The film really deserves a top-notch new high-def transfer. And yes, it also has a wonderful supplement, John Huston and the Dubliners, ready to go if Criterion could nail down the rights.

Finally, some love for THE DEAD!
I have the UK DVD and heard the US version doesn't look much better plus it's cut.
Do you guys know if there's a better looking version?

Thought I'd mentioned I received my r4au disc of John Huston's The Dead last week. It's 16x9, widescreen, and looks like a better transfer than the cropped r2jp. It's available for $6.64 USD plus shipping at EzyDVD.

The Dead
The price is now about $13 at EzyDVD.

I'm not sure if this means anything, but Hunter In The Dark is up on amazon instant video with an HD transfer. This is the only Gosha film on amazon's instant video. So does this mean that Criterion might have a release on the way? Here is the link.

Hunter In The Dark is also available on Criterion's iTunes channel in HD.

Is that common for a film that hasn't had a physical release? I hope this is a sign that a release is on the way.

The Mulvaney one. It's just a matter of whether they want to give you a real answer or not. When I had some disc problems recently, I sent in an email and they were really helpful (they actually replaced 2 defective discs).

I think in this case you got exactly the answer they wanted to give you, that's all.

Well I shall choose to interpret that as my question hitting so close to a mark they don't want leaked yet that it's coming soon. \:D/

Film Forum will be showing two new Janus restorations in late April/early May: "Safety Last" (which we knew about), and Roberto Rossellini's "Voyage to Italy."

Great news about the Rossellini... anyone know if that film's part of a larger restoration effort? If I got my Repo Man blu and Rossellini/Bergman box in the same year, I could retire from Criterion-ing.

YES, I would totally buy a Rossellini/Bergman box set. Speak of the devil, I recently saw Scorsese's documentary on Italian cinema for the very first time (I think I posted it about here?) and it definitely whet my appetite.

Thinking of The Hunter in the Dark in HD gives me chills. Come on, Criterion blu-ray box-set of Gosha's color samurai films!

Exactly. It would be insane to have a HD release.

What's a HUGE shocker is that Criterion hasn't released Tenchu or even picked up the rights to this film. Not only is it one of the best Japanese films ever made, it's one of the best films made PERIOD. I figured this one would have been released by Criterion years ago.

I'm pretty sure the rights for Tenchu is with another company.

Really? I've tried my best looking into this in the past and wasn't able to find anything. Wondering who in the world could be sitting on the rights to this film. If that's the case, what are they waiting for?

Can somebody please just appease me and tell me that 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days is definitely on the way for this or that reason?
