Why don't you just subscribe to the thread (which theoretically should have happened already since you've posted a reply)? Use the "User CP" function to check for updates to your subscribed threads.

That's what I do. I've never had to go searching for a thread that I've already been following.

It should be noted that the Samuel Goldwyn films from the Golden Age don't apply here. While MGM had the rights to them on DVD, it appears that Warner has them now. Ones that Warner has already released on Blu-ray include Guys and Dolls, The Best Years of Our Lives, The Bishop's Wife, and Hans Christian Anderson.

But thanks for the list, Brad1963.

I copied from Wikipedia, it looks like they need an update. There are always so many questions about what MGM is these days. I thought this would help.

I wonder if MGM has any titles from the Embassy Pictures library? I've heard that Embassy titles are scattered around.

Prizzi's Honor would be nice, especially since there's never really been a good dvd.

They definitely do. At the very least, they have The Lion in Winter, which they've apparently licensed to Twilight Time.

Titles produced by Samuel Goldwyn Productions (Samuel Goldwyn Sr.'s company) during the Golden Age reverted to the Goldwyn family trust some years after they sold The Samuel Goldwyn Company (SGC, Samuel Goldwyn Jr.'s original company); they now belong to WB in the U.S. & Canada, Miramax elsewhere. Other SGC titles, including Tom Jones (1963, original production company Woodfall was acquired by SGC) and most movies originally released by SGC, remain with MGM.

StudioCanal apparently has primary control of the Embassy library, but they've licensed several Embassy titles to other companies -- including The Graduate to MGM. Not sure about The Lion in Winter; it only shows up on the SAE website as soundtrack CDs (which have nothing to do with TT), but its BDs in Japan & Sweden were apparently licensed to local indie distributors by StudioCanal.
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; LG BP550 (region-free); HP P7-1010 (w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, Hanns-G HL227, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers, PDVD 14 & 16)
A/V hardware: Sony XBR-65X900C (4K-3D); Vizio E3D320VX (3D); Roku 3 (2015); Galaxy Tab S2 8.0; Moto X Pure Edition

Other than UA, which they didn't buy the library, they bought the whole studio), all other libraries only feature a handful of interesting titles (if at all). It's no wonder a studio which makes these kind of decisions has been in and out of bankruptcy for the last 40 years!

Well, they could choose not to license such lousy titles in the first place. I can understand studios issuing crap as long as it sells, boutiques issuing good studio titles that don't sell but anybody issuing bad titles that do not sell it's beyond me.

You must have a pretty limited scope of interest as a movie buff if you believe that.

Thank goodness I understand the meaning of the word subjective. Otherwise, I would be insulting a lot of people for calling a film I enjoy "crap"

If does make it harder to keep up, but it is fun knowing a new title will be announced every few days.

I really hope Kino isn't biting off more than they can chew. They've announced an ambitious amount of releases for the upcoming months, many being my fav. movies. I really hope they can deliver a quality product

Yeah, especially as the first ones haven't been released yet. I mean, Kino does have a good reputation based on their past releases of silent movies, etc. but the way they're cranking these out I can see them simply being not much different than what Twilight Time does, take whatever's been given to them by MGM and slap it on a disc.
