Nobody's Fool is also the one I'd like to see come to Blu-ray.

I actually blind bought Dead Man on Campus when it first came out on DVD and remember being incredibly disappointed with it as the dark plot sounded like it had some promise, but it ended up just being an even stupider than average teen movie that really couldn't go the distance with what it set up.

My friends loved it, though (and I'm not saying that in a judgy way) so we ended up watching that DVD a lot. Sold it off once it fell out of the rotation.

I assume it must have some following since it's getting a release now. Makes sense for Pootie Tang, which I know has a cult.

I completely forgot that Dear God (and Greg Kinnear) existed, so can't explain the reasoning behind that one

Wasn’t Pootie Tang written and directed by Louis CK? I guess cancel culture is a fake thing after all.
Cancel Culture only matters if the thing that could be canceled is big enough to be on the radar of Twitter and/or the mainstream media. Pootie Tang is far too niche to register on that scale.

Fortunately/sadly, so is The Pianist when released via a label like Shout Factory.

The unexpected method of Chris Rock's factory death is gold, otherwise I never got the appeal

It's probably hypocritical of me to ask this question on this particular forum, but:

Who is buying these?
My freshman year roommate will be purchasing Dead Man on Campus as soon as I tell him about this announcement. An an eccentric fellow and raging alcoholic, he and I watched it one long night at 4am, and his running joke for the rest of the year was concocting plans to kill me because he was failing out (he only actually half-tried once). Needless to say it's an ongoing dark joke that he will be amused by. The movie sucked though, even at that hour at that time of life and in that state of mind.

My heart leapt at The Ladies Man and sank at (2000).

Still Smokin (1983) on (you guessed it) 4/20/21

This was supposed to come out in 2018 (alongside the release of Up in Smoke), but was canceled without explanation.
