Excellent thread, Yami

I would like to post a couple of photos here. I assume that that the rest of the Cohen titles will come in the same cases. The reason: The pictures at Amazon are very misleading. Cohen's titles come in very elegant clear cases. However, they are not like Criterion's cases. They are slightly thinner, but still very beautiful.

Quote:
Charles S. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of the Cohen Media Group, today announced the arrival of the Cohen Film Collection, a world-renowned collection of rare cinematic gems, which will be meticulously restored and enhanced for generations to come. The Cohen Film Collection (formerly The Rohauer Library), will include more than 700 films – from enduring Hollywood classics to foreign masterpieces and seminal avant-garde works – which will undergo complete digital restoration so that the best possible versions of these historic films are available across all platforms of delivery. Many of these films will be theatrically re-released, while others will join the Collection on Blu-ray and DVD.

The first release from The Collection, Tristana, is currently in theaters and will be debuting on Blu-ray and DVD this March. Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on February 19, 2013, will be The Thief of Bagdad, Douglas Fairbanks' 1924 fantasy epic that marked a new peak for action cinema during the silent era. The Thief of Bagdad has been digitally restored in 2k from two 35mm negatives incorporating color tints and tones of the original release prints. Featuring state-of-the-art sound, the Carl Davis orchestral score and accompanied by audio commentary and numerous extras, The Thief of Bagdad Blu-ray and DVD indicates the care Cohen will be taking with all releases from this collection.

Many titles in the collection are rare; the collection has the only known materials for some films. Exclusive licenses and contracts
bring to the Collection original nitrate elements camera negatives, prints and other materials unavailable elsewhere, to assure the best High Definitions transfers possible.

Highlights of The Cohen Film Collection include:

The General (1926). The Collection has the original nitrate camera negative of Buster Keaton's Civil War comic masterpiece and is creating, in partnership with The Library of Congress, a 4K scan from a safety fine-grain positive master newly struck for the restoration. The Collection also includes Keaton's Sherlock Jr., Our Hospitality, The Navigator, Go West and dozens of his remarkable short films.

Intolerance (1916). D.W. Griffith's awe-inspiring epic is receiving a 2K restoration that will include an orchestral score by world renowned composer Carl Davis. Other Griffith masterworks in the Collection include The Birth of a Nation (both the 1915 original and the 1930 cut), Broken Blossoms, Way Down East, Orphans of the Storm and many of the groundbreaking shorts directed by the "Father of Film."

Sudden Fear (1952). David Miller's film noir, starring Joan Crawford and Jack Palance, is receiving a 2K restoration.

L'Etoile de Mer (1928). This and other experimental shorts by the avant- garde photographer Man Ray will be released.

Hangmen Also Die (1943). The Collection is working with Britain's Pinewood Studios on a 2K restoration of this Fritz Lang film that will reinstate a short sequence not in the version currently available here.

Song of Freedom (1936). One of six films in the Collection starring the singer- actor-activist Paul Robeson.

Son of the Sheik (1926). Rudolph Valentino's last film is being restored from nitrate material held at the Library of Congress. Valentino's Blood and Sand and The Eagle are also in the Collection.

Jamaica Inn (1939). The Collection will restore this period adventure, the last film Alfred Hitchcock made in England before moving to Hollywood and his first adaptation of a tale by Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca, The Birds).

Fire Over England (1937). This historical drama marked the first screen pairing of Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier and is being restored to honor, in 2013, the 100th anniversary of Leigh's birth. It's one of four Leigh films in the Collection.

The Strong Man (1926). Frank Capra's first feature film stars Harry Langdon, generally regarded as one of the quartet of great silent-screen comics along with Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd (all of whom are also represented in the Collection). One of 14 Langdon films in the Collection.

Douglas Fairbanks films. In addition to The Thief of Bagdad, the Collection includes such early Fairbanks titles as The Lamb and Double Trouble, both from 1915, as well as his later adventure classics The Mark of Zorro, The Three Musketeers, Robin Hood and The Black Pirate. Among the dozens of other Fairbanks titles in the Collection is The Taming of the Shrew, a screen pairing of Fairbanks and his wife, "America's Sweetheart" Mary Pickford.

The title should probably be changed as I initially thought this was for the Cohen Bros. Maybe "Cohen Media Film Collection" or something

I'll probably pick up Tristana down the line, as I enjoy Catherine Deneuve.

It was just Cohen Film Collection, and yeah I meant Coen bros. I'm sure I'm not the only ones that totally forgot their actual name and got confused when I saw this thread

I first thought it was a Coen Bros thread and that the OP had spelt it wrong.

Literacy is overated.

Here's all the listings, done up in a similar fashion to some of the other collection threads (aka Pro-B style). Feel free to add it to the op, and/or correct anything.

I liked Decliacy a lot. It is one of the better comedies with Audrey from recent years. Definitely better than Priceless and Beautiful Lies.

The script is all around better.

Thanks for the information.

What are the best rated Audrey Tautou films? I own Amelie, but I'd like to try out some other ones. Specifically Coco Before Chanel and Delicacy. Any other really good ones that are region free?

I know she's in The Da Vinci Code, Dirty Pretty Things, and Priceless too.

I really like these Region-B titles. The Spanish Apartment/Russian Dolls films, in particular, are great.

Thanks for the list!

Unfortunately I realized I mistyped my message and meant to say what titles that are region free are the best?

I have wanted A Very Long Engagement for a while, but unfortunately it's region locked and I don't have a region free player
