Films worthy of 2001 wcl expanded treatment

Recommended Posts

Discussion of Heat led to consideration of an expanded set for it, and got me thinking

 What would be your top choices for any movie that wcl premium treatment should be given to? I think expanded sets, should be a solid mix of cinematically rich, quality plot, and has strong replayability. Ideally I think 4k scan availability should also be a strong consideration, but not a requirement. It should not have had a premium release by another brand, be by disney(sorry Tron Legacy), and probably shouldn't be apart of a broader series or have a notable sequel (sorry indiana jones and back to the future) due to licensing complexity

 

Personally, my top five would be:

Usual Suspects

Spies Like Us

Apocalypse Now

Book of Eli

The Crow

 

How about yours?

Ok, these probably don’t meet all the criteria above but I’d still like to see them done one day.

 

Stargate

The Fifth Element

Serenity (firefly)

Running Man

12 Monkeys

Total Recall

Snowpiercer

 

 

 

And Blade Runner of course😂

Hi Folks;

I believe one of the criteria the OP mentioned was "no existing Premium copy" but no worries.

Wish lists are exactly that, something we wish would happen.

I think the more "epic" or "iconic" the film, the better the chances

Anyway, here's a few I've pulled from other folks posts and added my supporting vote to and also a few (well, 10) I have in mind not yet mentioned;

+1 - Once Upon A Time In The West - 🤗

+1 - Natural Born Killers

+1 - A Clockwork Orange

+1 - Apocalypse Now

 

- Time Bandits

- Animal House

- Mary Poppins (1st).  [I'm STILL upset Disney did not give the bloody 50th Aniv. of the film a great box-set, like they did Sound Of Music].

- Rocky Horror Picture Show (so much could go into this!)

- Magnificent Seven

- Good, Bad, Ugly

- Dragonslayer 🤗

- Dr. Stranglove

- Cleopatra (Taylor/Burton)

- Brotherhood Of The Wolf (never happen but I can dream can't I ?)

 

Okay, I could go on and on but with gun put to head, these at least. 🙂

I tried to include one of each genre. Except for "Horror", as there's a new edition for horror fliks every week. 😉

Whats yours Sweetheart  ??

 

They rocked my world to the core . 

 

Ladyhawk  needs  a mention  too just for the disco classical  soundtrack. 

 

Snowpiercer any realise would be hard pushed to beat the  Kimchi Artbook set. 

 

So many fantastic  moves already listed by others as well

First off, great list here overall. I Would absolutely love gbatu if it had the right love put in- good call. Dr strangelove is one of my all-time favorites, and I love time bandits, but I hesitated from putting these or other criterion bluray releases on my list because I didn't see any wcl releases the criterion has done before, or that many other premium publishers have succeeded with.

 

I put the criteria in because of how wcl has chosen releases historically- I'm sure there's always the right kinds of situations where they would put a release together if they thought they had something significantly different to offer or demand to fill, despite what other premiums or criterion editions may exist

A Clockwork Orange

Goodfellas

Once Upon A Time In America 

Once Upon A Time In The West

Zodiac

 

Each of these films is an epic masterpiece deserving of a royal treatment, but perhaps none more so than ‘West’. 

 

 

Has wcl ever done 4k yet? Goodfellas would be a good first try if not

^^ To my knowledge (admittedly limited) WCL has only released 1 film in 4K, 2001.

There have been some upscales of other films, Unforgiven comes to mind but not released in that medium.

As for Goodfellas, not a premium but the WB release of the slip-cased ed with accompanying hardcover book and a remastered 4K scan (released in 2K) is very nice indeed.
