    I think these would make good Universal Collector's Editions:

    STREETS OF FIRE:
    Whilst this 1984 Walter Hill film under-achieved at the box-office, it has deservedly
    become something of a cult classic. How about a new anamorphic widescreen
    transfer with DD5.1 and DTS audio, trailers, teasers, cast and crew bios, publicity
    stills and portraits, production photos, a Walter Hill commentary track, a 'making
    of..' featurette, and an all new retrospective documentary with cast and crew
    interviews including Walter Hill, Diane Lane, Michael Pare, Rick Moranis, Amy
    Madigan, Bill Paxton, Willem Dafoe and Deborah Valkenburgh. That would be such a
    cool release!

    KING OF THE HILL:
    Steven Soderbergh is about as 'hot' as a director gets at the moment with TWO
    films up for best film Oscars. This is an immensely acclaimed drama that would
    make a great Collector's Edition DVD. Great anamorphic widescreen video and a
    great audio track along with a Soderbergh commentary track, a 'making of...'
    featurette, cast and crew interviews, photo gallery, trailers, teasers, cast and
    crew bios and production notes would be great! This film is crying out for lavish
    DVD treatment.

    DUNE (Full Version):
    David Lynch's big budget epic was released to DVD a few years back as a
    non-anamorphic, bare bones release. How about re-visiting this title? It has been
    seen in many incarnations (including an Alan Smithee extended cut). This would
    make a popular Collector's Edition (anamorphic enhanced please).

    THE GLASS MENAGERIE:
    Paul Newman's all star adaptation of the famous Tennesee Williams play won huge
    praise and acclaim when released theatrically. Sadly, the film has been 'left on the
    shelf' as far as DVD is concerned. Please release this as a Collector's Edition with,
    hopefully, Paul Newman and his casts involvement. Commentary, making of.., cast
    interviews, trailers, cast and crew bios, etc etc.

    One last thing - Universal should revisit 'SCARFACE' in the future with
    remastered and improved video and audio quality. The extras are great but the
    video in particular is not up to their usual high standards.
