    I have a fairly long list of movies I recorded off TV or titles I have on VHS that I want released on DVD - preferably on regular format - not necessarily on Blue-Ray. Here are a few:

    Baby Blue Marine ( 1976 with Jan-Michael Vincent)
    Tribes ( 1970 with Jan-Michael Vincent)
    Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar & Grill (1976 made-for-TV movie with
    Dennis Quaid, Don Johnson, Tanya Tucker, Victor French)
    Where The Boys Are '84 (1984 made-for-TV movie with Lisa Hartman (now Hartman-Black - Clint's wife), Lorna Luft an Russell Todd)
    Norman, Is That You? (1976 with Redd Foxx, Pearl Bailey, Dennis Dugan)
    Some Of My Best Friends (1971 with Rue McClanahan, Sandy Dennis and Fannie Flagg)
    Return To Macon County (1975 with Don Johnson and Nick Nolte)


    More wanted titles to come:

    DVD is essentially dead. Blu-ray is where it's at now.

    I doubt it. The chance to re-sell a title yet again because of a format change? You think studios and producers aren't going to take advantage of that? Now that the dust has settled you'll see Blu-Ray become the dominant form factor by next Christmas.

    I just wish they'd change the name "Blu-ray" to something else. It sounds Godawful. It reminds me of the name "Betamax". I thought Blu-ray would lose the format war to HD-DVD just because of its name.


    A few of the movies and TV shows I would like to see on DVD are:

    There Goes the Neighborhood
    Bugsy Malone (foreign versions exist but it has never been released in the U.S.)
    Ken Park (same situation as Bugsy Malone)
    Who's Minding the Store?
    Treacherous

    Laurel Avenue (HBO mini-series)
    Mama's Family (so far only the first season has been released)
    It's All Relative (early 2000s gay sitcom)

    A few more on my want list:

    Late For Dinner (1991 with Brian Wimmer and Peter Berg)
    Happy Birthday, Gemini (1980 with Rita Moreno and the late, great Madeleine Kahn)
    Fall From Gace - The Jim & Tammy Story (1990 with Bernadette Peters and Kevin Spacey)

    BTW, "Some Of My Best Friends" is a gay-themed movie that takes place in a gay bar on a Christmas Eve. I've never understood why it has not been released on DVD...and it may not have ever been even on VHS. I'd even settle for that format!
