I was just wondering: Did Good Time not get a blu-ray release here? It seems quite strange, as both the US and the UK got one.

No it didn't, and it continues the disappointing trend of a stream of well-received arthouse films getting neglected on HD / BD in this country.

OK... I still buy CDs - and I wont get into streaming services....

however there is a part of this article which brings that OTHER format into question in B&M stores.

A bit of a 'history' lesson : CDs were BIG in the US.... and there were some BIG B&M stores on my earlier visits to the West Coast........HMV.... Tower Records... but now (and I need to get back this year), the CD market has more or less collapsed... to Walmart, Target, Frys and a few other smaller stores.

IT'S THE SAME with DVDs, Blu and 4K.


According to those sources, Target gave the ultimatum to both music and video suppliers in the fourth quarter of last year that it wants to switch to scanned-based trading, with a target date of Feb. 1. But while it is proceeding to push DVD vendors to switch to scan-based trading terms (i.e. the chain would pay for DVDs after they are sold or scanned while being rung up at the register), it has moved the deadline back to music suppliers to either April 1 or May 1. So far, music manufacturers are not sure what they are going to do, but sources within the various camps say that at least one major is leaning no, while the other two majors are undecided.

If the majors don't play ball and give in to the new sale terms, it could considerably hasten the phase down of the CD format.


Consider this.... if a title or format isn't selling... its a goner.

Anyone whom visits the US and these B&M stores now that products are reducing their shelf spaces...... how long before they go ???

Distributors would be better off cutting ties with all those department-type stores and only dealing with specialised retailers with a focus on entertainment media.

Reminds me of when the industry tried to kill vinyl. Eventually people will realize that streaming is garbage and services like Spotify are an insult to the intelligence of music fans (especially with their habit of making certain tracks unavailable except when you purchase the entire album), then they'll all be clamouring for CDs and BDs again.

Has anyone ever seen Looking for Mr. Goodbar?

I just read the novel and was absolutely transfixed. My level of interest was heightened given that it's based on a true story. The novel is essentially a roman clef, so I resisted looking up the details of the real life case until after I had finished. The crime is both brutal yet fascinating: a Catholic female school teacher for the deaf, who at night leads a double life in New York's single bars, meets a grisly end when one of her one-night stands turns violent.

The novel was adapted into a controversial, successful film starring Diane Keaton but much to my chagrin it is literally out of print due to music rights issues pertaining to the film's soundtrack. There are grainy, low quality uploads on YouTube with either horrible dubs or subtitles, but I'd prefer to avoid those. The problem is I could be waiting forever, given that it's been 20 years and nothing about a release has materialised.

Yeah, back on it's first release then at a repertory screening and then numerous times on VHS. It's a great film that really divides people.

One of the most wanted releases around that is apparently held up due to music rights issue(s).

Were those repertory screenings in Australia?

That seems like the only chance I'll have to see it in a faithful projection, that isn't YouTube or an illegal download.

Yeah. Back in the late 70's/early 80's before the arrival of home video there were a couple of cinemas that screen double bills of films during the day and then would repeat them at night. Most of them died out as the 80's progressed.

I saw Mr. Goodbar on a double with Serpico.

I know that Mr. Goodbar screened at NYC's Film Society of Lincoln Center as recently as August 2017.

It's a pity it's languishing in low-grade, video obscurity. I wonder if there'd ever be the possibility of an Astor Theatre screening.

You should contact them and make a request. The music rights issues do not prevent the film been screened at cinemas.

Ah, this is just a cheap grab for the corner of the living room, nothing too expensive or high end. We've managed to snag a Samsung UBD-K8500 4K HDR Blu-Ray Player on the cheap, so figured we'd grab a 4K TV as well seeing as the corner of the room has recently been made available.

Waiting for 2nd Gen on the OLED to throw in the media room. Eventually.

Yeah, we have an LG TV & Player set-up in the bedroom which has pretty much outlasted every damn Samsung/ Sony/ Panasonic combo we've ever owned. It's never given us any trouble.

Thanks.

There are few things more irritating than hearing about classic films showing in cinemas that are thousands of miles away from me.

I do see the occasional one pop up, but I've not yet found a reliable way of keeping track of what's showing where. Stumbled across flicks.com.au which listed quite a few old films, but most were exclusive to Melbourne and you have to find them amongst all the current stuff.

Sydney sometimes screens old films at Event, but they're mostly classics or well known cult classics that have transcended their obscure beginnings to become crowd favourites.

I think Adelaide's GU Filmhouse also did a monthly cult cinema session, with the likes of Twin Peaks: FWWM and Blade Runner.

Still not far enough west to help me any.

Hoyts seems to intermittently do classics through their Rewind thing, but that seems to be about it.
