    Been a bit quiet since TF&TF after Xmas. Bought Tombstone but that was the only new release did buy. Instead I got myself the R1 versions of 'The Crow' and 'Dark City' (which I should have done a long, long time ago... forgive me Mr Proyas). Even the January sales were a waste of time.

    Things are looking up now though:
    Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back; Training Day; K-Pax; Bandits; Bones; The One; Ocean's Eleven; Behind Enemy Lines; The Usual Suspects; Heist; Vanilla Sky; (ahem) The Musketeer; The several Batman animated series DVD's; Farscape Season 3.

    Got to start saving the pennies and stop bunking off work.

    Shoka.........Saw Jeepers Creepers a few weeks ago, thought it was an ok movie, a few bits in there to make you jump, lights off.... is a must!!

    Confucius................Remember the original series of UFO on tv, just seen some of the re-runs, can't remember what station though, yes agree, really good.

    One that hasn't been released (not that i know of) that is on my list "Jumping Jack Flash".........!

    Can we have a proper release of Highlander, please? Some special edition ala Superbit would be nice.

    That's what I would be looking forward to ... well, actually hoping this since I bought and watched the disguisting current R1 supposingly-THX-certified release.

    While waiting for my pre-orders, I recieved (from future ent), Hearts of Atlantis (if you like Stephen King the this is for you), and Michael Douglas's Dont Say a Word, which again was very good.

    Currently it's just the BTTF Trilogy that I'm mainly waiting for. A couple of TV releases will also be bought before summer including the UK shows:

    o Black Books
    o The Thin Blue Line

    And possibly, and this is as tentative as Universal Studios, a few movies before hand.

    I was looking forward to Legend as well - but unfortunately I believe that it has been completely shelved BadAss.

    There is a pathetic R2 release coming soon with absolutely no extras whatsoever! Why do they even bother!!:mad:

    Going to preorder Harry Potter May 28th)

    Wish list - how about some good concert stuff such as Peter Gabriel and some good BBC stuff such as "Buddah of Suburbia" (not the BMG screwed-up version released on VHS).

    "Wish list - how about some good concert stuff ...."

    I totally agree, there is a total lack of decent Music related DVD releases.

    The BBC could do worse that to package Old Grey Whistle test Versions 2, 3,4 etc after the brilliant one that has already been released. There must be loads of stuff in the BBC archives crying out for this sort of exposure.
    Also could release 'White Room' and 'Later with Jools' packages.
