Well, I have to admit I don't understand WB's logic. What with all the titles they have yet to release, they have just annouced for Blu-ray "The Bad Seed." Good film and all, but...huh?

 

Release date is October 11th (must be tying in to Halloween).

"Rescue the Hitchcock 9" is the BFI's major campaign to restore all nine surviving silent films by one of the greatest directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock. Earlier today, the BFI posted a video in which curator of silent film Bryony Dixon, conservation specialists Angello Lucatello and Claire West, and film conservation manager Kieron Webb answer a series of questions about the restoration project.

Okay, thanks for pointing that out. I am still learning this particular forum with all the threads.

 

I think it helps if the performers are added when the titles are listed.

I think there are other ways to create categories. I feel we need to be able to better reference these titles by performer, not just by studio. Also, I would like to see DVD releases listed by genre.

 

I do not think the average TCM viewer pays much attention to which studio made the film. They want to find a favorite star's DVDs or a certain type, like a bunch of screwball comedies or melodramas.

 

Do you guys see what I am saying...? I like them listed by studio, because I appreciate studio output history, but I think we need multiple ways of referencing this information in this forum. The forum is big enough that we should be able to have some new threads that discuss these releases by performer, director and genre.

 

Thanks.

I'm afraid I don't agree. When I had this whole DVD section created a few years ago, I created a number of genre threads. These still exist. If you go back several pages, you will see that. They were broken down into War, Musical, etc. As far as studio releases, that is only done in the case of made-on-demand titles. (And Criterion.) After several years, it's become clear that the most popular forums are the MODs, Upcoming Releases, and Special Sales.

 

There was a short time in which individual threads were created about one title here and there, but it quickly became evident that the very first threads breaking them down in to subject were the right ones. For example, upcoming regular DVDs and Blu-ray releases all get put under "Upcoming Releases." It is one place that one can find out what is coming up, instead of having to seach through several individual threads spread out throughout the forum.

 

In this particular forum, organization helps.

 

I will be introducing some new threads in the future.

 

Well, I don't want to stifle creativity, but as you are a TCM board member barely a month old, and didn't even know of this forum until a week ago, I would say it is best for you to spend time getting to know your way around here before starting any new threads...especially since it was just yesterday you wrote, "I am still learning this particular forum with all the threads." To simply say now, "I will be introducing some new threads in the future" comes across as a bit arrogant, which I am sure you didn't mean to convey.

 

Certainly, you are welcome to post info in the current threads if you know of titles coming up that Edgecliff and I haven't listed yet. We are always on top of release info, but occasionally we will miss something. But you should always do a search before listing something because often we list upcoming info months in advance for regular DVDs and Blu-rays. MODs are usually announced just as Warners or the like starts selling them. In addition, we list just the basics instead of all the fluff the studio puts out in announcements, because we had one poster here who would list every word they said and that would end up taking up a whole page. We believe people are smart enough to either know the title or look it up.

Back in May, I mentioned that Breakfast at Tiffany's is coming to Blu in August. It is now set for Sept. 20th, and will be a 50th anniversary edition.

 

Here are some more updated details:

I do think I need to create some new threads, because some of us compartmentalize information differently.

 

 

I sincerely believe that there is plenty of room in this forum for different threads to be created and for there to be some slight overlap of subject matter. There is overlap in other forums, where discussion occurs on the same actor or the same film in more than one thread.

 

Take care.

I think what I object to is not a new thread or two, but rather the manner in which you announce it. The threads here have done well for 5 years (this current one with over 200,000 views) but within a few days of being here and only three posts, you say you need to redo things.

Updated info on the Blu version of West Side Story

 

5914050183_602ddbff05_z.jpg

 

Fans of the film will have two options when picking this one up on Blu-ray. A four-disc Limited Edition giftset will include the film and special features on two BD discs, a DVD version, a tribute CD, and a full color book alongside numerous lobby card reprints. A second version will simply feature the two Blu-ray discs in digibook packaging.

 

Special features for this release include plenty of material that breaks down the film's songs and choreographed dance sequences, as well as a good assortment of the film's theatrical trailers. This 50th Anniversary Edition also brings over the bonus content from the 2003 Special Edition DVD set. The complete list is as follows:

* Pow! The Dances of West Side Story: All new featurette in which cast members, contemporary filmmakers, dancers and choreographers analyze and illuminate the film's famous dance sequences.

** Prologue

** Dance at the Gym

** Tony and Maria's Cha Cha

** America

** The Rumble

** Maria's Roof Dance

** Cool

* A Place for Us: West Side Story's Legacy: All new featurette that takes a look back at West Side Story and the impact it has had all over the world.

** Creation and Innovation

** A Timeless Vision

* Song Specific Commentary by Lyricist Stephen Sondheim:

** Prologue

** The Jet Song

** Something's Coming

** Dance at the Gym

** Maria

** America

** Tonight

** Gee, Officer Krupke

** I Feel Pretty

** One Hand, One Heart

** Quintet

** Somewhere

** Cool

** A Boy Like That / I Have a Love

* West Side Memories: One-hour retrospective documentary.

* Music Machine: Allows viewers to go straight to their favorite musical numbers

* Storyboard to Film Comparison Montage

* Trailers:

** Original Theatrical Trailer

** Original Issue Trailer

** Reissue Trailer

** Animated Trailer

Prices for the two versions of West Side Story: 50th Anniversary Edition have yet to be announced. Pre-orders should be up soon.

 

Are you kidding, I'd be all over this one even if it was just for the Sondheim song commentary.
