Crap that sucks. I hope TT comes through for you.

I wonder if it is possible that Twilight Time can offer titles that were originally on Blu-ray but then go out of print? 2 titles that appear to meet that criteria are Starman and Cocoon. Even as I type this I suppose even if they could, TT might well not want to, assuming that consumer demand would not be high since they were once available and many who wanted those titles already have them (as I do, having resorted to buying the UK and German editions respectively due to their OOP status here in the States). But as we know, there are a lot of John Carpenter fans so maybe Starman would be a good seller for TT.

Sony usually ends up giving these types of titles to Mill Creek for reissue.

Thank you, I did not know it was Sony that did that. Do other studios sometimes do the same in giving Mill Creek OOP titles, or it solely Sony?

Only Sony has done that with a handful of their OOP titles IIRC

Yup. Just Sony. Cocoon is Fox though, in any case.

It looks like this was caught in the nick of time and the UPC for SYLS / SYLG should be corrected when it is released.

haha.... after the posts above, I just noticed I have advanced in Blu-ray rank. After six years on the forum, I have become a samurai.

So I'll use that as an excuse to plug one of Twilight Time's best films, Yoji Yamada's magnificent The Twilight Samurai. I rank this one up near Harakiri (1962) as one of the best samurai films I have ever seen. If you are not a samurai fan, this film will still make you fall in love with its gorgeous cinematography and interesting story that begins deceptively as a well-acted drama, slowly building suspense, before unleashing a searing chain of events that will leave you on the edge of your seat. With a hauntingly beautiful music score from master musician Isao Tomita (of 1970s electronica fame), The Twilight Samurai is another in a long line of masterpieces to come out of Japan over the decades, and reminds me why I can't get enough of great movies.

The first two movies in the the Samurai Trilogy (The Twilight Samurai and The Hidden Blade) are my favorite Japanese movies, period. They are one of the few movies I rewatch every year. Love and Honor (the 3rd movie in the trilogy) is very good as well, and I watch it yearly as well.

I was on the fence about blind buying The Twilight Samurai during the most recent sale on SAE's website. Seeing these comments make me glad that I went for it. Nice.
So many blurays, so little time.

Just finished watching Thunderbirds Are Go / Thunderbird 6. What a great TT release!

I was born a few years after Thunderbirds debuted on British television. I first caught repeats of the show as a young boy and was instantly hooked. I bought the original VHS releases, the A&E DVD sets after moving to the US, and the Shout Factory BD set last year. However, I had never seen the two feature films released after the end of the television run, so finally picked up the TT BD a couple of weeks back.

Both films are great fun. Thunderbirds Are Go plays more like an extended episode of the television show. It gets a little sidetracked with a Mars/alien sub-plot that adds nothing to the story, but features a remarkable and almost surreal dream sequence that includes a performance by real-life 60's Brit pop icons Cliff Richard and the Shadows - who frankly look and sound incredible as marionettes. Thunderbird 6 is perhaps the more satisfying of the two films: Although both feature espionage, the latter more closely resembles a "thriller" while still adhering to the Thunderbirds "rescue" format.

PQ is excellent, and highlights the incredible model work that exemplifies the attention to detail for which Thunderbirds became famous. At the forefront is the astonishing special effects work of Derek Meddings, who went on to make significant contributions to the Bond films of the 1970's. AQ is fine; as a purist, I chose the mono option.

The films are essential viewing for fans of the show (what took me so long?), and for anyone interested in science fiction with a 60's espionage bent. According to the most recent Low Quantity Update on Page 1 of this thread there are fewer than 350 copies remaining, so if you are at all interested, or intrigued by these films, I wouldn't hesitate in ordering your copy.

Some possible good news for those that missed out on Night of the Living Dead 1990.

Really wish Twilight could/would dip into some older Fox titles like Tin Pan Alley & State Fair (1931). Clearly Fox has no interest in them.

I'm not sure if TT still has access to MGM's archives, but more and more, Nicholas Nickleby (2002) seems to me like such a perfect TT port of an under-appreciated release MGM will probably never put out themselves. I can even see this under Olive Films, but, <shudder>, here's hoping someone out there decides on the better option. A lossless track of the lovely Rachel Portman score would be quite, er, lovely.

Anyway, just a thought. I've had the film poster (and the film, as a result) in my head for a while now, with the Twilight Time label right over it, colored gold just like the borders of the poster itself.

I'd be happy with some of the Tyrone Power films from the 30s and 40s....

Fox made them available in sets for DVD but nothing from Blu-ray.

He was their biggest star for many of those years.
