Housekeeping(1987). From Columbia/Sony.


Pure magic. The ending is still one of the best I have seen in cinema. I love it!

Kinda goofy, but, I'd like to see Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, released on DVD. Edit: I just read that it was on DVD.

Just a thought, you may want to add an "L" to the title, 'cause it spells "fim."

Er... Serenity 2?

Can't think of much I'd want that isn't already on DVD.

Very good choice, but I'll go with another Bill Forsyth film, Comfort and Joy.

The Time Travellers - came out about the same time as Journey To The Center Of Time, but this movie is a real gem.

Okay, thought of one. Steven Soderbergh's King of the Hill. I've never actually seen it, but I'm a huge Soderbergh fan, and I've been told it's quite good. It's also quite unavailable on DVD, as is his film Kafka.

I have seen Soderbergh's King of the Hill, and it is a gem. I used to have it on laserdisc but then that player bit the dust, but not before I had dubbed it over to VHS. Need to pull that one out of the closet and see if my vcr still works.

From 1983, a TV movie, Chiefs, based on the Stuart Woods novel of the same name. Excellent police story spanning three generations of cops investigating a serial killer in a small southern( I believe it was Georgia) town. Big cast for a TV movie, Charlton Heston, Billy Dee Williams, Keith Carradine, Danny Glover, Stephen Collins.

Godzilla vs. Biollante. Arguably the second *best* Godzilla movie to the original from 1954, and no DVD release is available!

More important than any movie though, i need to be able to revisit childhood favorites like the show ReBoot in something better than YouTube format.

I would like to see My Bodyguard released on DVD (if it hasn't been already)for the following reasons:

1. it was the first thing I ever saw Adam Baldwin in
and it started my admiration for his fine acting skills.
2.if I had never seen My Bodyguard, I would never have known about Adam Baldwins fine acting talent, and would never have continued to watch Firefly. It had already been cancelled by the time we saw it in Australia, and I had decided not to watch it, or find anything out about it coz I didn't want to deal with the eventual heartbreak. I was channel surfing one night 7 years ago and saw Mr Baldwin on top of a train and started to watch....etc etc..
3. I thought My Bodyguard was the most realistic and impactful eighties coming of age film for teens. I really related to the underdogs in the movie, and it had such a sad ending.

Tiamat, yes. Can we name TV shows?

War Planets
Roswell Conspiracies
Starcom
Spiral Zone (came out briefly, then disappeared out of print)
Visionaries
Inhumanoids
The rest of Gargoyles (S2, part2)

W.I.T.C.H. (Hardly as old as the rest, but I'm demanding a couple of full-season sets anyway. And maybe a third season and a couple of movies while we're at it. . .)

The TV movie Intensity.
It's based on the novel by Dean Koontz, and features John C. McGinley (Dr. Cox from Scrubs) as a crazy serial killer guy. Very intense, McGinley is perfect, and it's quite long so nothing is rushed.

For film, I'd like to see "Tough Turf" from early 80's with Kim Richards, who was also the kid in Witch Mountain.

For TV Movies, I'd like "When Every Day Was the Fourth of July" from 1976ish.

And for TV shows, nothing more wanted than The Six Million Dollar Man.

"The Archer: Fugitive from the Empire," which was a made-for-TV fantasy movie that was basically a pilot that didn't get picked up. I'm sure it's quite horrible, but it's part of my childhood.

And speaking of "quite horrible but part of my childhood..." Why not the Star Wars Holiday Special? I have a bootleg, but would hope that an official release would be less unwatchable.

Reboot actually was released on DVD, back before Mainframe(the studio)Was bought out by Rainmaker
now, not sure if this is good news news or not, but, they are actually "relaunching" Reboot. started with a fan-generated comic, available at www.reboot.com and now they are making 3 feature length films, all in house.

and Cybersnark, when looking for War Planets, try searching for Shadow Raiders, it was also made by mainframe, which is a canadian company, and there was some kind of weird law up there that "children's programming" couldn't have the word "War" in the title. So in Canada, War Planets was called Shadow Raiders. This is also why, in Canada, Beast Wars : Transformers, was called Beasties : Transformers.

Wacky Canadian Laws...

and also just a quick fun fact:
Mainframe, now Rainmaker, have done all the VFX for Stargate SG-1,& Atlantis, and their associated movies.

Make Cartoons, Not War

Well played, Clerks...
- Leonardo Leonardo(Clerks Cartoon)

That was the one and only time Lucas completely turned control of Star Wars over to someone else, and he's made it very clear he regrets it, and hates the product. Heck, the "pull quote" on my bootleg copy is this quote from Lucas: "If I had the time and a hammer, I'd destroy every copy."

Plus, and this is just speculation, but all the pop music in it would likely be a rights issue, as there were certainly no DVD (or likely home video) rights secured.

Oh, I'm well aware of that (being born'n'raised in Canada), I just figure everyone knows the American titles better.

This is available on DVD - we have one from 'Hollywood DVD', Region 0 encoding (so plays anywhere), 206 mins, Cert 15; however if you go to play.com right now, you'll find both Region 1 (US) and Region 2 (Europe) versions of 'Chiefs' available, prices vary but won't break the bank. It's one of the family's favourite TV movies, and, yup, an exceptional cast.

Not a movie, but a wonderful compilation of comedic awesomeness: Michael Nesmith's 'Dr Duck's Super Secret All Purpose Sauce,' a compilation of selections from Nez's mid-80's tv show, 'Television Parts.' Fantastically funny; next time you're on YouTube do a search on "World of Color" for a nice giggle.

Not to sound like a Monkees-obsessed Browncoat here, but I also wouldn't mind a freshly remastered version of their waaay underrated classic, "Head." A nice slice o'sixties right there, co-scripted by Jack Nicholson and featuring a bunch of music 'heavies' on the soundtrack (Neil Young, Ry Cooder, Leon Russell...) The dvd that's out of this looks like it was lifted straight from a fair-condition vhs tape - very sad :(

OH! And three old tv movies from the seventies (anyone here remember the ABC Movie of the Week?) One called "Bad Ronald" about a 'geek' boy who lives in secret behind the walls of his house and spies on the new family who moves in after his mom dies, "Don't Look in the Basement' where Kim Darby is plagued by nasty little gnomes who are trying to kill her, and one I can't remember the name of that had Barbara Eden pregnant with an alien baby. She acts weirder and weirder and then after she has the baby walks into a beam of light, followed by a bunch of other women holding babies.

TV was my babysitter, what can I say? ;)

TV movies of the week are practically non existent on dvd. I'd buy all the ones you mentioned in a heartbeat. Even If I haven't seen them. I'd also like to add....ummm, can't remember the name. It's about a girl who crash lands in the Amazon and has to survive with snakes, and bad things. It was from the 70's, and I just remember as a kid I was completely captivated by it.

Also, The Last Dinosaur, and The Ivory Ape with Jack Palance.

I'd love a Bill Forsyth box set on dvd. He has to be one of the most talented, and underrated directors of our time. Every film of his has a certain charm to it. Long story short..he makes smaller budget thought provoking films that you will remember after watching.

Serenity 2 of course.

And I thought The Great Santini wasn't on DVD but I just found it. The best adaptation of a Pat Conroy novel about a tough as nails USMC pilot(Robert Duval) who literally terrorizes his sensitive oldest son and the rest of the family. And Blythe Danner as his wife (I see Mal's Ma a lot in her character).

I disagree. The best adaptation of a Pat Conroy novel to film is Conrack. Jon Voight gives his finest performance ever. Sadly it isn't on dvd.
