Ah, the Fertility dance in High definition - worth it for the sheer jawdropping WTF factor. Since Columbia restored Lost Horizon and then released that cut only on DVD-R, this will be the same edition but superior quality.

The Rains of Ranchipur is an entertaining 50s Scope epic melodrama that improves on the black and white version, The Rains Came, in many ways. Some of the special effects in the climactic disaster don't hold up too well, and BD will just make some of the matte lines even more obvious, but it's great fun and no film with dialogue like "The destruction of midgets does not interest me" is without merit.

The MOD DVD-R of Lost Horizon has the cut footage as deleted scenes. Here's hoping TT ports that over, but their track record with special features is not great.

The Spanish DVD of The Rains of Ranchipur is just the film in widescreen, so even a trailer would put them ahead of the game on extras. Not sure how viable an isolated score on that would be since the master tracks are partially missing - they could only find four cues for the CD release.

There is not one title that I'm interested in.....Nothing! Now, who's going to pay $35.00 for The Blue Lagoon.

Major Dundee sounds great in 2013.
Like tridon I just wanna order my copies of Enemy Mine and Night of the Living Dead '90.
Right on, slimdude! Blue Lagoon for $35 - seriously?
Let's say there was a demand from consumers for another 3 000 copies of their "Fright Night" blu - would they/could they re-release it??
Maybe Twilight Time could do us all a favour and release Michael Mann's "The Keep"!

I myself am excited for Night of the Living Dead. I got the Fright Night blu-ray and thought they did a good job on the video. Though like others I wish they would pack in some special features.

Sorry $35 for barebones movies is way too much. I'm pretty sure Fright Night will be re-released by Sony. I mean Twilight Time has already done the hi def restoration, and Sony saw how high demand was. I'm sure Sony didn't signed over the rights to one of their most popular movies permanently.

I agree Twilight Time leaves a lot to be desired with their bare bones approach with no extras besides an isolated music score. I buy them when I really want the movie, but none of these releases interest me.

So glad there's nothing for me in that list. Been collecting home video for a long, long time. Never outright despised a disc producer before this company, well, aside from divx and the infamous Toshiba/Microsoft collaboration a few years back, but they weren't technically the producers even though they were subsidizing production. But, I just can't bring myself to support a company who actively promotes the falacy that discs, which I love, are dead or dying; inflating prices based on an artificially manufactured shortage, promoting their own con, not a market reality that has been substantiated on any level, only speculated on by a naive online market that wants to get their movies for free and studios own desire to push an all digital future.

Maybe it's not their fault entirely: maybe the studios won't give them license to produce more than a limited number, in essence using them to guage the market for the studios own eventual release. If so, it's smart to spin the limited supply any way they can to get people to pay more for the same product any other producer can supply in high enough volume to justify a more appealing price.

I still can't bring myself to support their marketing strategy, but I can't say I don't appreciate those who do: while strong sales may encourage more similarly exploitative marketing, the better the sales, the greater the potential for a proper mass-market release as well. Though, if I were TT, I'd want at least a 5 year license, regardless of volume license or how fast they sell out, if they have any say whatsoever. As soon as their first title is revisited, their overall sells are bound to decline.

I'd purchase The Rains Of Ranchipur as I'm a fan of disaster movies, but I won't purchase it for more than $19.

Here are the extras listed on the Sony dvd-r for Lost Horizon:

SPECIAL FEATURES (as written on the packaging):

Original Song Demos by Burt Bacharach (with photo gallery)
Ross Hunter Short - a 36-minute film
Original Trailers and TV Spots
Ross Hunter on the way to Shangri-La - 10-minute featurette
Alternate Scene - "I Come To You."

Let's hope Twilight Time includes these special features on the blu-ray.

With all the alternate versions of The Keep, a director's cut would be great on blu...

Per IMDb (may be spoilers):

Some television versions include additional footage after the original downbeat ending, showing Eva Cuzo (Alberta Watson) turn around, entering the Keep and finding the body of Glaecen (Scott Glenn), dead after the final battle with Molasar. Eva hugs Glaecen, which is revived by the power of her love.

In the theatrical version, there is a scene in which Eva looks past Glaeken into a mirror behind him, and sees that he casts no reflection. Later, she sees that he as turned the mirror around. These scenes are missing from various video and cable versions.

Another TV version features a different ending where Glaeken is seen carrying the dead Molasar in his arms in the inner chamber of the keep.

A strangely edited version that appeared on Channel 39 in Houston, TX around 1989 had a scene where Glenn is telling Magda that it has been so long that he couldn't remember what he looked like anymore. That version ended with Glenn alive at the bottom of the gorge, wounded after his battle with Molasar, crawling to the stream there and seeing his reflection.

The more upbeat ending showing Eva and Glaesen alive together is closer to the ending in the novel by F. Paul Wilson.

Paramount have wanted to do it for a while, but Mann wanted to re-edit the film yet again (as per all his other films on home video), but never finds time to actually get round to it. I'm sure the studio has probably given up on it ever happening now.

I wouldn't sell the LOST HORIZON dvr quite yet-- Twilight Time has yet to include any significant extras on anything (just got BYE BYE BIRDIE and it's strictly a bare-bones affair except for a trailer and isolated score/effects track, despite a wealth of archival material they screened with it recently at the AMPAS). Still, it'll be nice to see that ridiculous fertility dance in all its big-screen glory!

Also, yes, yes, yes to a blu-ray of THE KEEP!

LOST HORIZON probably the most star studded cringe-worthy movie I have ever seen, but it is so bad I have to have it I can always turn the volume down when Peter Finch sings that terrible song.
