Hmmm, wondering if I should pick up that Renoir box. Are those films available in better editions and/or likely to be issued on Blu?

Make no mistake about it, that set is mostly lower tier Renoir. The only one in there that I can recommend without reservations is Nana.

Agreed with Dom. Those are some of the most enjoyable Renoirs I've encountered. Definitely worth owning.

Ooh, if Lionsgate's Jean Renoir box is going OOP perhaps Criterion might get Grand Illusion back? I know it's Canal, but just maybe?

The Jean Renoir box is also Studio Canal.

I'd put both the The Elusive Corporal and The Doctor's Horrible Experiment in the good/not great range, while Whirlpool of Fate, Charleston Parade, and La Marseillaise all fall flat for me.

You also forgot The Little Match Girl which is pretty great and unlike any of his other work I've seen. Charleston Parade may be pure fluff, but it's such enjoyable fluff I'm surprised at the cool reaction.

Cinema Guild's Peter Watkins titles
Every Pathfinder DVD release (including the notoriously problematic but still somewhat indispensable Chabrol box)

The same ones New Yorker put out: Punishment Park, the War Games, Culloden. The Gladiators and Edvard Munch remain in print (for now)

I don't see evidence of this either, do you care to substantiate domino?

I can only find reviews and listings for the New Yorker/Project X titles online, MMM must have mixed up the distributors .

Going by another thread on here, Cinema Guild took over distribution from New Yorker, of the Project X titles.
A recent post on CG's Facebook page suggests that Project X's days producing Peter Watkins releases are over, too.

The Blu was just released a few weeks ago, so probably a production issue. If the problem is it already sold out, that would only be incentive for Warner to press more.

Looks like B&N still has it, and with the 15% non-member codes they sent out for the holiday weekend, at a reasonable price too.

Ship date of 9/22 (with 20% off code). Not sure whether I'll ride it out or just wait for some Warner Archive sale down the line.

Out of the Past was just released. Before people buy on impulse, you might want to wait, it looks like there's something wrong with the disc:

Quote:
Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.


It's a Warner Archive title, so it's not likely that it's going OOP immediately after being available. Does anyone know if it's one of these BD-R's & not a pressed disc?

No Warner Archives Blu-ray release has been on a burned Blu-ray. Look, believe or not believe, but this exact release is listed as out of print on MMM-- I'm actually not sure why lately people seem skeptical about things going out of print? There are lots of reasons it could be going out of print, and it might be right back with a new UPC or different branding or as part of a set or who knows what. But the disc that was released just a few weeks ago is now out of print, and that's not from Amazon it's from MMM

(And several Warner Archives releases have gone out of print)

Well, it just seems quite quick for such a title (and usually, I feel when people read OOP, they usually think "you won't be able to buy it anymore at all").

Didn't Criterion's Ran blu-ray go out of print before it was even released? As weird as it is I feel like we've seen stuff like it happen before.
