    It makes no difference to me if they go OOP because a lot of their titles (or at the very least the ones that I care about) are still readily available in better editions for a lot less through Arrow, Eureka, or 88 Films in the UK.

    I would need a better reason to want a domestic release than to simply have a domestic release. If it’s the only one that’s available then okay, but for many of Scream Factory’s titles they’re not.

    I really wasn’t speaking for anybody other than myself in my prior post.

    Some of the titles are worth getting. I grabbed Dead of Winter and Invaders From Mars because they were cheap and the SF edition of Dead of Winter outdoes the 88 Films release in the UK. 88 outdid SF with their edition of Swamp Thing though, so it going OOP isn’t that big a deal.

    They’re certainly not the best studio when it comes to encoding their blu-rays, that’s for sure. They’ve gotten a lot better in recent years with their new 4K scans but it’s hard to beat Arrow’s encoding. If there’s a SF and Arrow with the same transfer, you can count on the Arrow to have better compression.

    Looks like MovieZyng is The Film Detective's inhouse estore so you are buying direct from them: https://www.moviezyng.com/810017886692.aspx?microstoreID=4

    I've cut way back on DVD/Blu-ray purchases so I was trying to resist but for some reason I cracked and put in an order. It is a fun movie and in the back of my mind I kept thinking "order it... Order It... ORDER IT!"

    Reviewer makes an epic title drop fail - when discussing great remakes, he mentions David Cronenberg’s...The Fog.

    Now that's a forehead slapping, "should have read it through again before hitting submit" moment.

    For my own part, I'll probably get the disk. But I'm reluctant given it wasn't that long ago I picked up the Twilight Time disk, which was pretty solid. Seems of late that double dips are way too frequent, for marginal presentation improvements and extras I'll probably not watch anyway.

    At least this is for a film that isn't easily available (although the Twilight Time disk didn't exactly sell out immediately). Not like the several times I've updated The Thing.

    I'll get The Blob, but typical cheap Paff will wait for the inevitable sale. I only just got Candyman when SF had it down to $18.99 on their site.

    Private School is such a terrible movie. You can see exactly what it was: they did "market research" of what people wanted to see in a teen sex comedy, and they just threw in every element whether it made sense or not. I mean, yeah, it's a teen sex comedy, they weren't going after an Oscar. But movies like Fast Times, Last American Virgin, Valley Girl all have staying power due to having heart, serious elements that teens could relate to in addition to the comedy, and didn't insult their audience by pandering to what they thought they wanted to see. Along with memorable soundtracks. All Private School has is Phoebe Cates (and don't get me wrong, 80s Phoebe Cates is damn near enough reason to watch a movie from her presence alone) and topless Betsy Russell. Which is also nice. But you can pretty much get everything you want from Private School with an unfiltered Google Image search without needing to buy an overpriced Shout Factory SE.

    Synopsis: Pilot Jed Towers (Richard Widmark) encounters the beautiful Nell Forbes (Marilyn Monroe) while staying at a hotel in New York City. Jed pursues Nell, initially thinking she's a woman of means, but comes to learn that she is actually a babysitter when her child charge, Bunny Jones (Donna Corcoran), interrupts a conversation between the two.

As a last chance before she is institutionalized, her parents (Inga Swenson, Andrew Prine) contact a school for the blind, which sends half-blind Annie Sullivan (Anne Bancroft) to teach Helen. Helen is initially resistant, but Annie gradually forms a bond with her and shows Helen ways of reaching others.

    The Pumpkin Eater (1964)

    Synopsis: Harold Pinter pens this 'portrait of a bad marriage' drama based on the novel by Penelope Mortimer. Despite her unwillingness to stop having children, Jo Armitage (Anne Bancroft), a thrice-married mother of several children by different fathers, is not exactly cut out for motherhood. Inflicting her existing brood on her third husband, screenwriter Jake (Peter Finch), does little to cement their marriage, and Jake's serial infidelities eventually lead a depressed and isolated Jo to a complete breakdown.

    • "Jeremy Mortimer on Penelope Mortimer"
    • "Dinah and Fergus"
    The Graduate (1967)

Then the wife of his father's business partner, the sexy Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), seduces him, and the affair only deepens his confusion.

    Fatso (1980)

    Synopsis: This boisterous, heartwarming comedy about a man caught between his health, his self-esteem and his appetite, highlights DeLuise's genius for blending pathos and comedy. Bancroft's deft direction brings to uproarious life the joys and struggles of our relationship with food.

    All his life, Dominic DiNapoli (DeLuise) has found comfort in food. But when his sister Antoinette (Bancroft) implores him to stop eating himself into an early grave, Dominic begins bouncing from crash diets to the support group "Chubby Checkers" to all manner of binges in between. In the end, Dominic discovers that what he needs most is a steady diet of love — from his family, from a new and lovely neighborhood acquaintance … and most importantly, from himself.

Using their limited acting skills, the members of the theater troupe attempt to deceive the Nazis and lead an escape. Meanwhile, a Polish pilot (Tim Matheson) thinks he has found a spy in England.

    Agnes of God (1985)

    Synopsis: Dr. Martha Livingston (Jane Fonda) is a court-appointed psychiatrist sent to evaluate Sister Agnes (Meg Tilly), a young nun whose infant has been found strangled. With Agnes claiming a virgin conception and having no memory of giving birth, Livingston must distinguish between the lies and the nun's perception-altering faith. Complicating her investigation, Livingston continually clashes with the overbearing Mother Miriam Ruth (Anne Bancroft), who insists that Livingston leave Agnes alone.

    84 Charing Cross Road (1987)

    Synopsis: New York City bibliophile Helene Hanff (Anne Bancroft) writes to the London bookshop Marks & Co in search of some titles she has not been able to turn up locally. Store manager Frank Doel (Anthony Hopkins) responds politely to her chatty letter, and over the course of two decades, a deep, long-distance friendship evolves. Based on Hanff's epistolary memoir and its later two-person stage adaptation, the film version incorporates new characters, including Doel's wife, Nora (Judi Dench)."

    We were speculating we might be getting something extra with Murders in the Rue Morgue since it's such a short film but two commentaries isn't exactly filling the disc. ;)

    Looking forward to Gary Rhodes's commentary though. He always has great info.
