How many releases of movies that we DON'T want do we have to endure until we get the ones we DO want from B.U., e.g. Deep Red, Suspiria, and Zombie?

Anyway, I don't think BU have the rights to NOTLD '68. The last company who released that movie in an DVD edition worth owning was Elite Entertainment.

@maidenbrain NOTLD is in the public domain. Any company can release it if they want, there are
no rights to worry about.

Also, many of us DO want The Crazies, thank you very much.

@maidenbrain, I heard that last years NotLD release by the Weinstein company was pretty good. BTW though, Blue Underground no longer has the rights to Suspiria. They belong to the Weinstein Company now. I for one am glad to see The Crazies announced. Was waiting for the announcement to tie in with the upcoming remake.

Good news. But I'd like to see "Martin" finally get a good release. It's one of Romero's best and definitely his most overlooked work.

@benricci, I should've said own a decent copy of the NOTLD print, that is worth releasing. And, yes, The Crazies, is a good flick (own it on DVD).

@JoeBidinger, I wasn't aware of NOTLD Weinstein Co. release. Alas, if in fact they do own the HV rights to Suspiria, what with their spotty record of releasing movies (e.g. Kill Bill The Whole Bloody Affair, which they might not have the HV rights to anymore, and The Road), I probably shouldn't hold my breath for a soon release.

More Romero = Good news. However, I'm still upset no NOTLD. Why the Weinstein's didn't
release it last year along side the Remastered 40th Anniversary DVD and Diary of the Dead is
beyond me.

To maidenbrain: For your information, The Crazies is the Romero flick I was anticipating the most on BD. Not everyone wants the same movies. One man's treasure is another man's junk or however that saying goes...

Quote:
"Aspect ratio: 1.66:1
Original aspect ratio: 1.85:1"

Uhm, shouldn't that be the other way around? Seems odd that they would change an original 16:9 to a pillar-boxed version, doesn't it?

Sawi it at a grindhouse back around '80. I don't think it was his best work. I am with the other guy and would have rather see Martin on Blu-Ray.

File me under the many people that want NOTLD. With a new Blu-Ray master this classic could look better than ever.
