Also I think we can be certain Brigadoon is next, given that it would complete the upgrades for the Broadway Warners box

SOB is legit one of the worst pieces of shit I have ever seen in my life. I know a lot of films have legitimate claims to being among the worst, but, well, this is another one. A two hour comedy graveyard. RIP jokes.

Conversely I mostly like it and it is seriously the best Edwards I've seen. I'm kind of annoyed that Rain People and You're a Big Boy Now seen eternally left to the dumpster over far worse Coppola's.

The downside of the great January seems to be nothing but the most WAC titles I can possibly imagine for several months

It's like whoever picked the January picks was Obama and then everything after has been a Trump appointment

Gwangi has been one of their most demanded titles. Harryhausen has his dedicated audience.

In demand from the HTF and Blu-ray forums means nothing, those mouthbreathers want anything that sucks

The Rounders being both the latest Archives-only rescue AND WTF choice!

Another title that fits both of the above descriptors-- what utterly bizarre choices, maybe the most so ever for this label

Finally a left-field choice that I can appreciate.

that fucking killer tree movie will sell more copies, so our choice is obvious...

To be fair, From Hell it Came is an apt description of half of the Archive Blu releases

To put a positive spin on this, I'm hoping it means that Warner's is doing something with the better titles in its catalog, either by holding off for proper restorations and/or licensing more titles to Criterion who will put more effort into the release.

Gary strikes again:
Well, who thought I'd have to include a couple of 'NSFW' safeguards when reviewing When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth. It is definitely the most 'boobilicious' Hammer title I've yet seen. Say, Victoria Vetri didn't I see you in an episode of Star Trek (TOS)? Yes, the uncredited human form of Isis in Assignment: Earth. Also, I see you were 1968 Playmate of the Year and in 2010 you were charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting your husband in the chest! Now there's a Hammer gal with some color!
The obvious aside, who addresses one of the actors directly when reviewing a movie?
