Or better yet, The 90's.

Did you notice the Out of place vehicles. I can imagine Whit Saying " let's get a really wide shot", only to be screwed in the editing room.

That's true, I'll read something on a film a year or so prior to seeing it. Then when I actually see it, I Get Deja Vu . "oh man, I think he's gonna bite the bullet, I'm so smart."

From memory in the remake they never explained that the visitors were being sent because the ocean was studying humanity.

Which seems like kind an important detail to omit?

Got my copy of Paths of Glory in the mail today and watched it right away.. I can't even fathom how good this looks - it's truly incredible! Same goes for the sound!

The film itself is now one of my all-time favorites and also my favorite Kubrick film. It literally gave me goosebumps - absolutely amazing! Probably my best purchase this year.. Everyone should own this film..

But they are coming out with a replacement case, instead of costing 5 dollars, it is $500. It will come with a platinum plated slip cover hologram of the Criterion logo and it includes a leatherboud book that features the booklets of all 99 movies contained on the disc.

That may be unfair of me to think that while not having seen the film but that is how I feel. Am I way off here though? Should I go seek out the 2002 version, is it a masterpiece in its own right?
Count me as a big fan. I'll happily upgrade when it turns up on blu-ray.

I agree on that. I can't decide if I should get the "Warner DVD made to order" for $18.95 or wait for a possible bluray upgrade.

I'd just go ahead and get the Warner Archive DVD - I can't recall any of those titles being upped to blu thus far, and they certainly are not priorities for Warner's to do such.

You can pick up Warner Archive titles cheaper at ImportCDs and Deep Discount. Also WBShop does present opportunities from time to time to get it cheaper than this $18.95 price, too.

Best Buy dropped the price on Heaven's Gate to $26.99 for Blu, why isn't Amazon following suit?

For those planning on ordering from Best Buy, it's backordered for a 2-4 week period.

Wasn't there a rumor that Paul Thomas Anderson's "Hard Eight", would be released by Criterion?

Vague rumors if I remember correctly, I think punch drunk love was the title most were expecting.

I posted this a few months ago, which is probably what you are thinking of:

I have never seen Hard Eight, but it would fit in with the recent-ish trend of releasing early films by current directors. And, with The Master in theaters now, Criterion might be able to time the release with the blu-ray release of The Master.

Perhaps this has already been discussed, but whatever happened to Y Tu Mama Tambien? It was supposed to have been released this year but it hasn't even been officially announced yet.

Solaris is a better remake than a lot of those you own. In some ways, it outdoes the original, but both films have their merits IMO.

Every now and then though I find one enjoyable if I just sit back and not try to compare it to its counterpart. But some films I just won't even dare, like the Psycho remake, yeah I am not going anywhere near that one.
I am not a re-make hater, I just feel some films are perfect in every way that it renders a re-make unnecessary. To me there is a huge difference in remaking Piranha vs remaking/re-adapting Solaris or Psycho.
