What are your picks?
Robinson Crusoe on Mars !
I love how it boasts "This film is scientifically authentic" !! For 1964 as they knew it.
Brazil. Now if they would only release the boxset on Blu-ray.
There are soooo many good ones, tough to pick just one, of course Robinson Crusoe on Mars is a good one, Spartacus, Brazil....
THE THIRD MAN!
Robinson Crusoe on Mars!...saw it in the movies...loved it ever since.
The Criterion DVD is excellent!
is it on BR as well?
...that'll be the third release!
My Own Private Idaho
I'm a fairly frequent buyer of blu-rays, but while I like some of the titles I couldn't ever justify to myself or anyone else the price of these movies in comparison to others. Perhaps some could enlighten me?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Dazed and Confused
Rushmore/Royal Tennenbaums/Life Aquatic
many of the Criterion titles are rare and to some... it's all about the numbers on the spine...
A few of my faves :
Fishing With John
Withnail & I
Spartacus <got mine signed by Kirk!>
Black Narcissus <dvd & br>
Toss up between Seven Samurai or Yojimbo.
1. The 39 Steps (BD)
2. Brazil (DVD)
3. Something Wild (BD)
4. The Seven Samurai (BD)
5. The Island of Lost Souls (BD)
6. The Last Temptation of Christ (DVD--haven't picked up the Blu yet)
7. Night of the Hunter (BD)
8. Blow Out (BD)
9. The Third Man (BD)
Yes...also on BluRay.
I remember being about 8 or 9 years old seeing it in the theaters and when Adam West was shown on RCoMars....everyone yelled.....BATMAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I dunno..."Amarcord" or "The Leopard," I guess. I'm very happy to have them on bluray. Love "The Seventh Seal" and "Fanny and Alexander," too.
Anatomy of a Murder
A Night to Remember
Bigger than life
Paths of Glory
Sweet Smell of Success (obviously....)
What are the numbers on the spine supposed to signify?
If you number something, people will collect it.
Such a tough question to answer. One of my favourites is Tokyo Olympiad. With the London Olympics coming up, do yourself a favour and check this documentary on the 1964 summer olympics. Then re-watch it with the commentary, which is by Peter Cowie, where the history of the olympics and individual sports is discussed in such fascinating and amazing detail.
I also will be buried with my Antoine Doinel box set.
Monsoon Wedding. One of my very favorite movies. And interesting additional material in this set.
The order in which the titles were released...
There's so many gems in the collection. My favorites are The Seventh Seal,The Red Shoes, Anatomy of a Murder, Charade, Hausu, Something Wild, and Paris Texas.
