    The original "Man Who..." is out on R2, from Carlton I think it is. Could be deleted now though. I have the VHS of the print used and it's absolutely awesome. I have never ever seen it look so good, almost no speckles and sharp as hell. -I can only imagine how good the DVD must look. I heard some years back that Warner were lining "Dial M..." up for a R1 release, but nothing's come of it yet. I live in hope. "Lifeboat" was out on LaserDisc from FOX, who knows when we'll see that one on DVD.

    I am honored to have been able to see Lodger tonight. I bought the GMVS title, and it's far from perfect. But so what? It's so fantastic to watch this at all, and I paid a fiver for it, which is even more amazing.

    I've read about this one in the past, but honestly didn't know I'd get a chance to see it first hand. Great film, very well made. I'm in awe.

    I'll write a review over the next day or so, and I'll post screenshots then for those that want to see them. If I were you though I'd not bother. Sure is soft and beat up - but it's worth every penny and minute of your time!
