Twilight Time's Nick Redman indicates that a third April release may ultimately be forthcoming. No technical specs have been announced, other than that Major Dundee will span two Blu-ray discs. Typically Twilight Time releases offer isolated music scores.
Are these limited to 3000 copies as well, if so to hell with it! Re-release "Fright Night" so that everybody who likes it can add it to their library. The prices Twilight Times OOP BDs are going for on amazon are freakin nuts, seems like bad business for them.
@dannalexcon All TT blu-rays are limited to 3000 copies. Obviously it sucks that so many of us missed out on Fright Night, I'm one of them, but you're missing the point. They charge $30 a blu-ray BECAUSE they're limited to 3000 copies. If they were re-released, that's a massive kick in the nuts of people who spent a high amount for something that's limited. When you think about it, if they had plans to re-release it as a second wave of 3000 or even mass produce it, you would think they would pack the limited edition copy with special features and make the second wave or mass produced version the barebones one so that ultra-fans who bothered to get the limited edition version still have a product that's truly limited and the people who weren't quick enough can at least get the movie. But they released the limited edition version as the one that's basically barebones. TT is so fail like that. Still, they do some wonderful transfers.
I wish their releases were more like Shout Factory, with newly-produced special features. These are the kinds of movies that deserve them most. Love The Fury, but probably not for $30, especially 'cause I'm still miffed about missing out on Fright Night.
The Song Of Bernadette is an interesting film. Jennifer Jones starring in this won an Academy Award for best actress and she deserved that win. Also, an excellent score by the wonderful Alfred Newman. Count me in for a pre-order.
I am personally fine waiting for every Twilight Time film to get a proper release when their rights expire, if they offered Criterion Quality releases I would have no issue with the sticker price but all of these movies will get a re release in a few years and the OOP cycle collectors all see will live on... Just look at all of those Paramount releases that were OOP and artificially valuable, no they can all be had brand new for 10-15 bucks... But to each his own
Twilight Time should not even do releases. What is the point of limiting to 3000? Obviously there are more than 3000 people who want titles like Fright Night. These films need to be in the hands of a company who will issue them so EVERYONE can enjoy them, not just a privileged few. And lest we forget the Night of the Living Dead fiasco? They obviously do not produce a package worth $30, just to have it lorded over the have-nots by the haves. Look at wht Scream Factory has done with films. Now THAT is worth the price.
Couldnt have said it better Calibraexis, I was sooo sad when I saw they had the rights to Christine, totally sucks, I wish someone would buy them out just to close them so someone like Scream Factory can properly distribute the movies I missed out on Journey to The Center of the Earth AND Fright Night becuase of their Shennanigans, If they want to charge a higher price fine, thats not my concern but making it so you cant even get one no matter what the price is plain ignorant
They press 3000 copies because that's what they can afford. It's a fix price to release that amount, if they want to release more the cost is astonishing to get the rights. If you don't like it don't buy it, stop your whining. Such irony with you calling them ignorant.
@ Terrifyer (<<lol what a screen name)-find a life and take Happy Pills (xoxo)...YOU are the ignorant one and I stand by my comment they ARE ignorant clearly they can afford to get more since many titles like this SELL OUT------HISTORY has Prooven that they COULD sell more than 3k with past titles ummm like Fright Night and Journey To The Center of The Earth....did you not graduate high school??? I mean REALLY??? this didnt occur to you??? maybe they should say "Hey lets get a contract to sell ..umm lets see how about 5000 copies instead of 3000" ...but of course you know this already you just like to be rude and nasty because it makes you feel better about yourself...if YOU dont like what I have to say you always have the option to not read it or better yet not sign on to this website....Keep your negative, Punishing_parent Comments to yourself--Merry Christmas
