    He offered to go back to the original negatives, but the licensors just didn't want to hear it.

    That makes no sense. Was it sublicensed to Olive Films, instead then?

    Edit: Obviously, but how embarrassing for them that they chose to go ahead with this release.

    Another deal with MGM means another chance of more opportunities. ;)

    Yikes, that means 5 And Dime, Jimmy Dean was barely in print. Aside from that, I think I got everything I'd want. Maybe Plain Clothes, but other than that I'm set.

    Olive just announced Dangerously Close. You have no idea how happy that makes me.

    That and Satan's Blade on February 24th, the day before my birthday. Olive loves me.

    Me too, it's one of my favorite movies. I always wondered what it would be like seeing it widescreen.

    Probably old news by now but apparently 88 Films has also joined the MGM licensing pool. The American Ninja films aren't really my cup of tea but I'm eager to find out what else we might see. Would be great if we got some of those Charles Bronson 80's flicks. I don't really care who does them - 88, Kino, whatever, as long as they don't use old masters. Looks like that fabled Cannon library is finally getting some overdue exposure.

    nice. I have fond memories of this from my childhood. I have the triple feature with Private Life of Sherlock Holmes and Hammer's Hound of the Baskervilles, but it's a pan & scan transfer, and as far as I know that's all that's ever been available.

    Wasn't that about football games (or was it baseball?) and some iron clawed killer starring Roy Scheider?

    Yep, and I actually just watched the DVD a couple of months ago.

    It was about baseball, and a serial killer with a "hook" hand who killed whenever the home team lost/won, or something. It's revealed near the end how they both tie in together. Roy Scheider starred as the detective trying to stop the killer.

    Ahh ok. It's been ages since I've seen the movie. I think it was pretty good but I definitely need to rewatch.

    Yeah, it's pretty good for an 80's thriller. I'll definitely pick up the Blu-ray at some point.

    You can still pick up the old 2013 release DVD (16x9) on Amazon cheaper than what Olive's DVD release will cost. It comes as a double-feature with Terror at London Bridge...which is an interesting twist on the Jack the Ripper mythos, starring David Hasselhoff.

    I knew of Night Game in name only. Based on your description and having watched the trailer this morning, I am definitely interested in this one. I had no idea this movie was about baseball (I assumed it was a sport I hated in the movie) and that the Houston Astros were featured. Very cool! :)

    As for the other upcoming Olive titles, I am interested in Best Seller along with Allan Quatermain & the Lost City of Gold. Too bad though that King Solomon's Mines is not being released. Maybe Kino?

    I really enjoyed TERROR AT LONDON BRIDGE. Hasselhoff is a riot. Adrienne Barbeau is in it as well. Despite wearing some consevative clothing, when my wife saw Barbeau she gasped and said something to the effect of "Wow, she's rather stacked".

    Watched the Amazon Exclusive DVD of NIGHT GAME last night. The DVD has an excellent transfer but the movie is very mediocre. It starts off strong and is surprising gory but it failed to keep my interest to the end. The side story of Scheider's struggles with his soon to be mother-in-law was obnoxious and I didn't care for his fiance's character (too mopey, lacked personality and unattractive). It was also a mistake to show the killer's face as early as they did. The finale is extremely weak. There are some good kills, a few tense moments, and no one appears to wear a bra in this film. Thanks to TERROR AT LONDON BRIDGE this release was still worth picking up.
