Also I think we can be certain Brigadoon is next, given that it would complete the upgrades for the Broadway Warners box

SOB is legit one of the worst pieces of shit I have ever seen in my life. I know a lot of films have legitimate claims to being among the worst, but, well, this is another one. A two hour comedy graveyard. RIP jokes.

Conversely I mostly like it and it is seriously the best Edwards I've seen. I'm kind of annoyed that Rain People and You're a Big Boy Now seen eternally left to the dumpster over far worse Coppola's.

The downside of the great January seems to be nothing but the most WAC titles I can possibly imagine for several months

It's like whoever picked the January picks was Obama and then everything after has been a Trump appointment

Gwangi has been one of their most demanded titles. Harryhausen has his dedicated audience.

In demand from the HTF and Blu-ray forums means nothing, those mouthbreathers want anything that sucks

The Rounders being both the latest Archives-only rescue AND WTF choice!

Another title that fits both of the above descriptors-- what utterly bizarre choices, maybe the most so ever for this label

Finally a left-field choice that I can appreciate.

To be fair, From Hell it Came is an apt description of half of the Archive Blu releases

To put a positive spin on this, I'm hoping it means that Warner's is doing something with the better titles in its catalog, either by holding off for proper restorations and/or licensing more titles to Criterion who will put more effort into the release.

Gary strikes again:
Quote:
Well, who thought I'd have to include a couple of 'NSFW' safeguards when reviewing When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth. It is definitely the most 'boobilicious' Hammer title I've yet seen. Say, Victoria Vetri didn't I see you in an episode of Star Trek (TOS)? Yes, the uncredited human form of Isis in Assignment: Earth. Also, I see you were 1968 Playmate of the Year and in 2010 you were charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting your husband in the chest! Now there's a Hammer gal with some color!

The obvious aside, who addresses one of the actors directly when reviewing a movie?
