I agree with Dom. The stage version with Jason Robards is my favorite version, look out for that one.

It is the twentieth anniversary of the Spice Girls' debut this year, so I get it, but I thought literally no one liked the movie

I actually remember watching the movie when it got out in France in theaters. I was in junior high schoold and remember spotting my then maths teacher, accompanying his daughter. I asked him at the end of the movie if he liked it. He told me he basically slept all the way through it.

This never materialized. I suspect it'll be a BD-R release sometime in 2017.

$14.99... I love it. The biggest "fuck you" to Twilight Time since their similarly cheap and feature-packed Christine

You know, if TT goes out of business, Redman has a career as a "film historian."

TT comment on Blu-ray.com:

"Our license has not expired -- Sony were put under a bit of internal political pressure to reissue the film for its 50th anniversary, and consulted with us regarding a solution. We mutually agreed to keep our release in print in conjunction with theirs, and as the conflict imposes on our 3 year window, Sony generously gave us some other titles as a quid pro quo. No sweat. Not a problem at all."

Except maybe for the people who bought TT's disc at a premium price thinking it would be a limited edition

Yes, Sony themeselves. Maybe they are copying Lionsgate's Vestron line. Here is the cover:

Updated with larger picture. They've got an older Columbia Pictures Home Video logo in the lower right.

That would be great if Sony is actually doing this.

Just got my copy of Lost Horizon, and I have a digital download code if anybody wants it...

Update: *redeemed*

I've never seen it before tonight, but Ronald Coleman and the cinematography/set design are first rate. Powell and Pressburger really did this kind of picture better, as it is a bit heavy in places - but I'm looking forward to the commentary. Prior to this evening, all I knew about it was from Dick Cavett's amazing interview with Capra, and the music from the remake.
