I think Kong and Silver Bullet are with Warner Bros. now. Prophecy is still with Paramount and they did a re-release of it on DVD.. real genius !

Prophecy (1979) is with Warner (as are the Brady Bunch movies).

Yeah I have the original DVD releases of Prophecy and King Kong. THey were both re-released, with different covers. The Kong cover was awful. At least they kept the embryonic critter, on the Prophecy cover, they just screwed up the artwork a little.

Paramount seems to have stopped releasing catalog on blu-ray with the exception of a handful of titles over the last few years. Even the Warner deal seems to have resulted in little product.

Some Best Pictures "Ordinary People" "The Greatest Show on Earth" especially missing

Some of the holes in the Paramount Blu Ray catalog could conceivably go to Criterion, including HUD, MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK, PAPER MOON, and RAGTIME. Other big titles not on Blu Ray that seem unlikely to go to Criterion include ALFIE, THE FIRST WIVES CLUB, LADY SINGS THE BLUES, MOMMIE DEAREST, and A PLACE IN THE SUN. I could see a few scattered older movies, like SORRY WRONG NUMBER, going to Olive. The most inexplicable catalog title not on Blu Ray, however, is ROMAN HOLIDAY. Seriously what??

Paramount titles already on Criterion include ACE IN THE HOLE, DAYS OF HEAVEN, HAROLD AND MAUDE, IF..., NASHVILLE, ROSEMARY'S BABY, THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, and (next month) DON'T LOOK NOW. I may have overlooked a few.

Let's hope that someone one of these days solves the music rights issues plaguing the highly sought 70s and 80s titles: Looking For Mr. Goodbar, American Hot Wax, Little Darlings and one that many attribute to music woes but others to different issues, The Keep.

American Hot Wax would be great. It's a movie about rock 'n roll that really captures the spirit and energy of the music. Plus, Tim McIntire is terrific in it. I usually don't care for biopics, but this is an exception. Better than The Buddy Holly Story or La Bamba, IMO. I hope those rights issues can be resolved, because I would love to see it on blu.

They need to release The Virgin Suicides in the US and other countries.
It's not fair that they released it only in France.

I'm still waiting on "Over The Hedge" & "Shark Tale" from (DreamWorks)

Also waiting on "The Longest Yard" (Adam Sandler movie - Paramount) & "What Lies Beneath" (DreamWorks)

Prodigious lists to be sure. Lot's of good ones under the Paramount banner we'd all like to see get a blu-ray makeover. (For example, I'd love to see Witness get a premium upgrade to blu-ray. Can you imagine how beautiful that film would be on blu?). BUT.....don't get your hopes up too much. It's all a numbers game with these studios, especially Paramount. If the financial analysts and accountants say it's not worth it then they won't spend the money on the upgrade. It's that simple.

Yes, Paramount's disinterest is very disappointing.

On the upside, it's great that Criterion has a shot at some of their titles. I don't see why Criterion wouldn't be interested in ALFIE, it's a great film and of some historical significance.

I'm also hoping they go for THE TENANT, POPEYE, LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR,THE GAMBLER and CATCH 22. They all seem like good fits. And I dream of a Criterion release for CHINATOWN, no doubt in vain.

But this leaves many wanted titles still in limbo:

Dragonslayer
Funeral in Berlin
Barefoot in the Park
Play it Again, Sam

etcetera etcetera...

Is The Dead Zone Paramount? If so, it needs a Blu-ray release.

Paramount has released Witness on BD in several countries already. The German version can be had for about $14 shipped.

Unfortunately they stripped all the extras off the overseas releases. I've been waiting a while on this one, hoping they'll release it properly here, perhaps paired with Gallipoli, maybe even with a remastered Truman Show in a Weir boxset. They released SE DVDs of all three titles within a few months of each other, as I remember, about ten years ago.

Lack of extras is a bummer, but it's not like they would have gotten a HD upgrade anyway. I slapped my old Witness SE in the case for the German BD as a bonus disc and called myself done. Witness has always looked pretty good upconverted on DVD but it's a lot better on Blu.

But it's conceivable they might give WITNESS a new HD master for a US release, they did it with SABRINA, of course that was to correct the aspect ratio...
