No, it just needs someone who actually cares like Shout! Factory.


Frankly man, what you see as a "poor excuse" is irrelevant since you're not the one trying to sell the product.

If you aren't willing to accept that "Halloween, Alfred Hitchcock, Friday the 13th, Child's Play" are all more successful "brands" than a series of British Dracula movies made in the '50s and '60s then I'm not sure what to say. As Tom pointed out, negotiating with multiple entities is generally going to be expensive (for starters that's more deals to make). Factor in that the titles you're acquiring are very "niche" and could probably turn at best a very slim profit. I'm sorry you don't like that but that's just how this business has always worked.

And Shout Factory is already releasing Hammer films, just the ones that they've been able to license, which excludes the ones already released by Universal, Mill Creek (licensed from Sony), and the ones from WB. Shout Factory wanted to pull all these things together they would have done so.

I'm just happy that these vintage titles are all beginning to get releases. For a while there it seemed only 80s genre titles were surefire bets to get blu-ray releases because of their enormous nostalgic pull these days.

Just picked up my favorite movie of 2018 and one of my favorite video games from the PS2 era (hopefully 2 and 3 aren't too far behind):

Got my Federal Refund, paid off a LOT of debt, now I can slowly start to purchase somethings again...I cant believe I still have 26 media items on my Amazon wish list that I have yet to purchase :shock: . My goal is to purchase one per week. Some of the more expensive ones towards the end will probably take a little longer to save up for, and accounting for additions along the way *hopefully* I can be all caught up by year end...

Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse 4K BD/BD/Digital for me.

I can't wait to rewatch this. When I went to take my niece and nephew to see it back in December we had some annoying kids behind us, being loud and obnoxious so I couldn't properly enjoy the film.

^ When I saw Spider-Verse there was a guy a few seats away from me who kept noticeably spazzing out every other minute. I was afraid to say anything in case the guy had legitimate issues.

Not for Spider-Verse or anything like that, but last night when we went to see Us at the Drafthouse they were showing clips from Vertigo during the preshow and this couple next to us kept laughing every time they showed one of the movie's effects sequences as if there was something hilarious about them.

I really want to get Spider-Verse on BRD, but I feel unfortunately with its (well- deserved) notoriety , comes inflated price. I'm pretty sure had this film not been an award-winner, it would have been released in the 15-19 dollar range. As much as I enjoy this film, I'm not willing to pay more than $20 for any single film anymore (The main reason why I'm behind on so many things). Anyone know where this can be purchased for under $20?...If not I'll wait, but I was just curious.

I picked up the Aquaman 4K BD/BD/Digital release from work tonight and ordered Transformers 4K collection on Amazon.

Transformers was $49.99 on 4K for all five movies so I couldn't pass it up. It normally retails for $80

These are some online purchases and in-store pickups from earlier this month:

Image

Image

Mind Game and Maquia were actually blind buys; I don't usually do that but I'll sometimes take a gamble. Sadly, I didn't quite like Mind Game, so I'll probably sell it off later. I actually have a second copy of Night is Short and two copies of A Silent Voice coming sometime soon (different sites, different prices), so I'll sell the duplicates too. I still haven't watched Maquia.

I saw Incredibles 2 selling for under $20 at Target, which I don't expect to see again soon; and the Mickey Mouse Blu-ray was $16 at Meijer - another blind buy, but with Steamboat Willie and others on there, I trust this will be a good purchase!
The two Dreamworks films were going for a good price at the time, and having just revisited The Prince of Egypt, I was chomping at the bit for a Blu-ray release. I haven't plugged in either disc yet, however.

I picked these up while running an errand at Walmart the other day, for $15-16 each:

Image
The Disney films were favorites of mine as a kid, and after revisiting them for the first time in a while last year, I felt compelled to get my own copies. This was the best price I'd seen so far.
Liz and the Blue Bird, meanwhile, was a pleasant surprise I couldn't resist for the price. I didn't like it as much as A Silent Voice, but it was still a solidly made movie that I think might be worth showing to my friends sometime.
Speaking of A Silent Voice...

Image

^This order arrived today. I now have two copies of Night is Short... But I am just SUPER pleased to finally own the other. There's a deluxe release coming down the line, too, and I just might splurge for that as well. I'm not usually like this - but I'm not usually enamored with a film the way I've been with A Silent Voice!

^^ I need to get that best of Mickey compilation! Any classic Disney short animation is super-rare on Blu-ray. I'm not going to wait for complete collections or anything like that, but I wouldn't mind them doing some equivalent volumes for Donald and Goofy and whatever.

Speaking of which; the first volume of 1940's Popeye cartoons the Warner Archive put out was apparently a big seller, so there's already a lot more classic animation in the pipeline for the Archive!

Well, watching the first episode to the new series kind of inspired me to pick this up today:

Image

Well, I also had $15 in Amazon rewards points I'm going to be losing when I deny the renewal of my Prime account next week, and since they had the set on sale for $58, I figured why the hell not. It will be my final Prime purchase. What shocked me is I ordered it around 9 this morning and they delivered it about 40 minutes ago. :shock:

Just got Spiderverse & Aquaman Blu Ray/DVD/Digital combos. Both were on sale for $15. This was at Target, though oddly, that price was not advertised anywhere, I just happened to see it online, and in store price was the same. Amazon has them for the same price in case you don't have a Target near you.

I picked up Dragon Ball Super: Broly at Wal-Mart this week -- nice movie, I like the way it brings Broly into the Dragon Ball universe (this movie happens in the main story, IE it's canon).

I ended up picking the movie up at Wal-Mart because you get an Instawatch digital copy (Vudu) of the movie, the "digital copy" that comes in the case is just for Funimation's own service (which I'll probably sign up for too, but it's nice having the ability too watch the Vudu copy easily most anywhere).

I present the two best animated films of 2019, by my reckoning. I found Mirai at Walmart for 19.99, which was perfect for me; and I ordered Spider-verse off Amazon since that's the best price I've seen so far. I feel a little bad, though - my copy lacks a slipcover, so it kind of disappears on my shelf. Of all the animated films to be unnoticeable!

Image

I visited Walmart again yesterday and picked these two up. Would you believe this is my first Marvel movie purchase? (not counting Spidey above) I've never quite been compelled enough to grab any - maybe because the films are just everywhere and so easy to see - but since a bunch of them were selling for $20, I figured I might as well grab one. The first Avengers might still be my favorite; it and Winter Soldier seem to be the ones I feel most inclined to revisit.
Rampage was a decent popcorn film, and as a giant monster movie I've been tempted to pick it up before. With the G:KotM promotion tied in, now seemed as good a time as any. The stylized slipcover is a nice bonus.

I also picked up 9 at Meijer today for 5 bucks; it's been a while since I saw it, but for that price I couldn't resist another, rather unique animated film for my collection.

I'm amazed Broly is already out on BD considering I don't think it is even out in Japan yet.

All because I am perhaps the biggest semimetal fool in human history:

Image

In memory of Julie Adams. “Bend the River”, vastly underrated Western, with a stellar cast - James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy and an up and coming Rock Hudson. This movie features two of the Gil Man’s leading ladies – Julie and Lori Nelson, both of whom are playing sisters.

Image

In memory of Peter Tork. Nonlinear film with a lot of crazy fun, including a kaiju-sized Victor Mature going after The Monkees, in several segments.

Image

In memory of Tom Hatten, who hosted “Popeye and Friends” on Sunday mornings and “The Family Film Festival” on the weekends on KTLA, Channel 5, back in the day. I don’t think I would be the Popeye, or more importantly, the classic movie fan that I am today if it were not for Tom Hatten. Thank you Tom!

And of course, we found out today that Doris Day passed away, so I will probably end up getting something from her's as well (I do have "The Glass Bottom Boat" on DVD, which I understand is now newly available on blu-ray, so I will probably get that).
