From that list, which two films would you pick to buy and why.
Thanks!
I will probably buy Here Comes Mr. Jordan in February when they have the next sale. And I haven’t seen it yet, but it looks good and is right up my alley.

Like someone else said, Veronica Lake is gorgeous, so I enjoyed I Married a Witch which I purchased right after I had finished Sullivan’s Travels, which I also recommend. Veronica Lake actually was the reason I got my regionless player. I got The Glass Key and The Blue Dahlia which are only available on region B Blu Rays.

With that said His Girl Friday is an all time classic, and is critically praised, and deservedly so because it is an excellent movie. However, I also love Only Angels have Wings and think it flys under the radar. It’s one of my favorite Criterion blind buys yet. You can’t go wrong with Howard Hawks and anything Criterion puts out that he directs I will buy.

As gorgeous as Lake is, and as good as the other movie looks, which I haven’t seen, if forced to pick two I’d get both the Hawks films. Cary Grant is the man, and Hawks is a phenomenal director.
Blu Rays I want.
1. Return to Snowy River
2. A Far Off Place
3. Quills
4. A New 4k remastered version of The Ninth Gate
5. 1990 Treasure Island with Charlton Heston

Just watched The Uninvited expecting a very creepy scary horror movie. After all, Del Toro lists it as among the movies that have frightened him the most and Scorsese considers it among the scariest movies ever made.

Boy, was I wrong. The movie isn't scary and, in fact, isn't even remotely a horror movie. It's something like a whimsical melodrama almost-comedy film. I should add that the creepy Criterion coverart also provided a misleading impression of the movie. I really don't understand where Scorsese or Del Toro were coming from.

I'll need to watch the movie again and take it on its own terms before I can say whether I like it or not but, just a heads up, don't make my mistake and buy this one when you're in the mood for a good horror movie.

The Uninvited has a couple of good eerie scenes but yes, it is not a consistently spooky feature and even in those IMO is not in the same league as The Innocents or The Haunting when it comes to gothic scares.

Maybe those directors saw The Uninvited in their childhood and it marked them.
And in that time there weren't possibly any spookier films..So...
We are judging with our own criteria now, having seen more recent horror films.

Everyone has an opinion, however there's a reason why Here Comes Mr. Jordan won Oscars for both the best original story and for the screenplay and why the film has inspired multiple remakes and inspired multiple other films and why it has always been critically acclaimed and considered a true classic.

It's a classic ghost story with a couple of very well made scary scenes in it. The overall tone of the film doesn't fit what most people consider a horror film, but it's a great film for the Halloween season.

Janus Films is releasing the 4K restoration of Olivier Assayas' film Cold Water. I'll assume Criterion will be releasing it sometime this year.
“Now more than ever we need to talk to each other, to listen to each other and understand how we see the world, and cinema is the best medium for doing this.”- Martin Scorsese

Like I said I haven’t seen it so I need to evaluate it eventually.

However if I looked to the Oscars to inform me about film, I would be missing what many current critics and film buffs consider to be the best movies of all time. Hitchcock got 0 Oscar’s for best director. Kubrick got 0. Nolan has zero.

So you’re right everyone has an opinion, and I consider the committees opinion on film to be about equal to that of your average movie watcher. The awards have long been farcical, and only continue to become more so.
Blu Rays I want.
1. Return to Snowy River
2. A Far Off Place
3. Quills
4. A New 4k remastered version of The Ninth Gate
5. 1990 Treasure Island with Charlton Heston

It was best film for Rebeccca I was thinking of.

Speaking of which Kubrick & Nolan never won best film either, and Hitchcock only once. Utterly ridiculous.

Further proving how out of touch the Academy is.

Hitch got a Memorial award from the Academy, but technically not an Oscar.

There are people on this forum that would do a far better job than the completely out of touch committee that hands out the Oscars. I trust someone like The Great Owl or some of these huge film buffs on these forums to give out much better advice than the kooks out at the academy.

It’s why I never watch the Oscars, and I never pay any attention to what they did or didn’t choose. I can find better informed sources in 30 seconds on the internet than their joke of a pageant.
