    Any body heard any release dates or rumours when we can expect to see the following films released on dvd,
    *Forest Gump
    *The Goonies
    *Gremlins 2
    *Willow
    I would like all 4 titles, but its always the case, the titles you want are nowhere to be seen.

    Mark,

    I don't think any of those 4 titles have ever been released to DVD. "Willow" is kinda cool, and is a movie I own on video, so maybe I should re-watch it sometime soon. "Gremlins 2" is also very good, and is a title that I too would like to own.

    On a similar note, "Willow" was the very first movie that I got the Original Cinema Poster for, from an old local cinema, when I was just 7 years old! It was the poster that started me off collecting film posters, in general, as well as being a stunning piece of artwork! I still have it as well!

    Them were the days, when movie posters were really worth collecting. Nowadays, however, very few posters are actually that great to look at - artistically speaking, that is. Maybe this should be a new thread: name some of the best and worst movie posters. I'll start off....

    Some of my faves:
    1) Three Colours Blue & Red & White
    2) Betty Blue - I actually own the original French poster of this, which uses an image of a poutingly Beatrice Dalle, sitting on a chair, and looking gorgeous!!!
    3) Willow
    4) The original 3 Star Wars posters (not the newer Special Edition ones)
    5) Chicken Run Promo poster - the one with just sets of Chickens eyes, in a darkened cinema auditorium.
    6) Akira / Ghost In The Shell - way-cool posters advertising two of the best Anime films ever made

    Some of the worst:
    1) Most modern posters - totally uninteresting to look at

    Posters I wish I owned:
    1) Aliens
    2) Japanese versions of Akira, Ghost In The Shell, Perfect Blue and Princess Mononoke
    3) The Abyss
    4) Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    5) Posters depicting banned and/or dubious horror movies, with their original "X" or "R" ratings on them.

    Anyone else care to make any nominations?

    Pooch
