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...
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

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.
