Nixon, the Oliver Stone film? I've not heard anything about this release and blu-ray.com doesn't even have it listed in their upcoming releases database. Can you provide some details? Will this have any differences from the existing Election Year Edition released in 2008? Will the theatrical cut finally be included? Will it include the "making of" featurette that was included on the "Collector's Edition" DVD release but dropped from the "Election Year Edition" DVD & Blu-Ray releases?
The release will most likely be a three disc set. Include both cuts, a new historian commentary for the theatrical cut and all the previously produced extras and director's commentary.

Not sure which "making of" featurette you're talking about, I don't see it listed anywhere.

Wait, KL just stealth announced a shitton of great movies, including 3/4 of the Lionsgate Godard set: Detective, First Name: Carmen, Helas Pour Moi (no Passion-- perhaps with Criterion?)
We also have Alphaville, which will be released later.

Thanks for that info, I'm really excited about this release! The "making of" was a promotional 5-minute production featurette combining clips, b-roll, & interview snippets. It appeared on this DVD release, though it was not listed on the back cover.

Fantastic news re: the Godards, they were my most wanted from this Studio Canal deal. Can I take this to mean that Passion won't be following at a later date though?

You guys are doing a fantastic job with these Disney/Touchstone titles. I have to ask-is Blood In, Blood Out on the docket? It’s developed a huge cult following over the years, and I’d love to see a beautiful HD transfer of it

The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection: Volume 5 (1976-1978)

Special Features:
• MYSTIC PINK - Audio commentary by author Mark Arnold
• THE PINK OF ARABEE - Audio commentary by author Mark Arnold
• THE PINK PRO - Audio commentary by cartoon writer William Hohauser
• THE PINK PIPER - Audio commentary by author Mark Arnold
• PINKY DOODLE - Audio commentary by filmmaker Greg Ford
• SHERLOCK PINK - Audio commentary by historian Jerry Beck
• ROCKY PINK - Audio commentary by director Art Leonardi, with William Hohauser
• THERAPEUTIC PINK - Audio commentary by author Mark Arnold
• PINK ARCADE - Audio commentary by historian Jerry Beck
• PINK TRUMPET - Audio commentary by filmmaker Greg Ford
• PINK U.F.O. - Audio commentary by cartoon writer William Hohauser

• THE PINK OF BAGDAD - Audio commentary by author Mark Arnold
• Think Pink - How to Draw Pink Panther with Art Leonardi
• Animated Main Titles For All 8 Blake Edward Pink Panther Films
• Reversible Blu-ray Art

In this next-to-last phase of the Pink Panther’s amazing run of new theatrical short-subjects, newsworthy mid-to-late 1970s trends and fads such as Rock’em-Sock’em robots (PINK ARCADE), compulsive dieting (DIETETIC PINK), and the merchandizing of “pet rocks” (Art Leonardi’s ROCKY PINK) come into focus. Fairy-tale spoofs (PINK PIPER, CAT AND THE BEANSTALK) make a modest comeback, but much more impressive are brand-new wrinkles on familiar Panther themes like sleep deprivation (Art Davis’s PINK TRUMPET), wars against a pesky fly (turning positively apocalyptic in Sid Marcus’s PINK S.W.A.T.) and journeys through surreality (SHERLOCK PINK, Robert McKimson’s last and probably best “Panther” pic).

Is there going to be a boxset of Pink Panther cartoons like with The Depatie / Freleng Collection?

While producing this run of cartoons, DePatie-Freleng Enterprises got into another trend that became popular the 1970s: recycling.
• THE PINK OF ARABEE --> THE PINK OF BAGDAD
• PINKY DOODLE --> YANKEE DOODLE PINK
• ROCKY PINK --> PET PINK PEBBLES
(New titles, a little new animation spliced in... new ideas, not so much).

THE BEDROOM WINDOW (1987) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian and Critic Peter Tonguette
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 112 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
Upwardly mobile architect Terry Lambert (Steve Guttenberg, The Day After) has it made—until his boss’s wife, Sylvia (Isabelle Huppert, Elle), witnesses an attempted murder through his bedroom window. In order to keep their affair a secret, Terry reports the crime in her place. When the authorities find that Terry’s account of the incident is flawed, he becomes the prime suspect in a string of mysterious murders. Terry is now trapped in a web of deceit and is desperate to reveal the killer’s identity before it is too late. Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle) wrote and directed this Hitchcockian thriller which masterfully delivers one shocking plot twist after another. The stellar cast includes Elizabeth McGovern (The Favor), Paul Shenar (Man on Fire), Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride), Maury Chaykin (Unstrung Heroes) and Mark Margolis (Hannibal).

Please reconsider this stance, even if it moves the release date back! With proper colors I will promise to buy 2 copies and a few more come Christmas. Please run it past the decision-makers and see what they say?

I'll definitely watch it (i.e. borrow or rent a copy) if it's all that's available, but there's no way I'd buy it if the messed up color timing is in place.

What's this about? From the trailer the colors look historically accurate. Are they not?

When he’s eventually released from the hospital, Pelham discovers that his exact double has recently been seen in places that he’s never been, taken over his family, undermined his business and even begun an extramarital affair. Is Pelham being stalked by a doppelgänger with a taste for the wild life, or is he simply a man going insane?
