Cohen & Tate please. The movie sounds like my kind of thing from the liner notes of the score release from Intrada recently but no DVD has been released frown

I don't want to complain as I have so many favorite movies on DVD, but I thought of two horror story collections:

NECRONOMICON '93 Three stories of H.P.Lovecraft

GRIM PRAIRIE TALES '90 Very unusual, horror stories set in the old west

For TV shows, I'd like to have The Wonder Years (no chance with all the music rights issues, but a guy can dream)

Believe it or not, this is being worked on. The sad part is is that they're obviously coming up against a lot of rights issues involving the period music from the show. The talk is that they're going to do to it what they did to WKRP and just replace most (probably not MAJOR scenes in the show) of the music with library tracks.

In any DVD form...

The Legend of Billie Jean

Billie Jean isn't on DVD???


Are you sure this isn't on DVD? I watched it on Netflix Instant about a month ago...

Also, I'll throw my hat in with SeaQuest Season 3.

The thought of music replacement just really bothers me with this show, and I normally don't even really care about DVD music replacement. But the way they used the period songs in The Wonder Years, it was almost like another character in the show. I think I'd rather not have it on DVD at all than have it with all kinds of replacements. Maybe they could bring in the show creator and work with him in selecting appropriate replacement songs or something, but I don't know . . .

When songs are a major part of a show's backbone and are used to communicate or reference what's happening in a given scene, changing the music is like rewriting the script or re-editing the scenes. It's just wrong. It lessens the impact and changes the interpretation of what was originally intended. I agree that I'd rather a show like this was not released at all than to be butchered. A while back I watched the short-lived series called Freaks & Geeks, and the producers talked about how lucky they were to get everyone to agree to NOT mess with the songs (this show was loaded with purposeful songs as well). Somehow they made an affordable deal. It just slays me that sometimes GREAT shows are in danger of no release because of rights and licensing and royalties. It's a self defeating process in a way.

The '91 martial arts movie The Perfect Weapon. Sure, it's not a gem or anything but it's entertaining and that's what counts with martial arts movies dammit!

Oh and there are a few late night cable naughtiness titles I can think of too...

TV:

It's Your Move (you'd think that, with Jason Bateman's career renaissance, this'd already be released)
Malcolm in the Middle (the rest of it; I'm not that big on the first season, which has been released)
Fantasy Island (the Malcolm McDowell version; hugely entertaining)
The Drew Carey Show (preferably, seasons two and three; the show started to turn after that)
Green Acres (again, the rest of it)
Roundhouse (uproarious sketch show that aired on Nickelodeon)

Some good stuff here.

Vis a Vis Jason Bateman, he's quite talented. Good light comedian.

Um, why don't you get yourself a multi-region DVD player? 90% of your list is available - I own almost all of them - nice transfers, all legit. And before you say they're too expensive (the players), they can be had for under a hundred bucks. Of course, would you buy these films if they WERE available here, or is this just a list? In any case, if you love 'em you can have 'em easily.

I'm with you on Malcolm in the Middle. I remember reading that the reason Season 2 couldn't be released was because of music licensing/cost issues. Yet it somehow gives 20th Century Fox an excuse not to release the other seasons. mad
