Details for Nomads Blu-ray!:
DVD Drive-In reviews The Outing/Godsend double feature: http://dvddrive-in.com/reviews/n-s/outinggodsend80blu.htm
Nice to read it's the full version of the lamp/the outing, With the upgrade in quality as well it will be an re-purchase for me, I would have preferred this to be double billed with the vagrant, but I'm not going to complain. Would love it if they would tackle the curse double bill, would love to get a nice copy, UNCUT would be a bonus of the curse 2.
Don's made multiple references to passing on films because of insufficient elements, but a quick search turned this up from an interview:
Details are usually left unsaid as it's good business to leave all negotiations off the public record.
Broadly put, before you license a film you investigate the elements. 9 outta 10 times the license owner has them and will give you a rundown and maybe even a sample. You're not about to put all your money down first only to find out there are no existing elements and you're just going to use an EP VHS as your "master."
You more or less said exactly what I said. So, essentially you're agreeing with my point. Yes they look for the best prints available but sometimes they're just not available. Prom Night was also a mess, but workable. Which is what I meant by workable prints that have the POTENTIAL to look great.
LOL. Believe whatever you want, dude. The director himself has come out and said what's wrong with the transfer and that there weren't good sources available (he said they couldn't even locate the negative). Contrast problems can absolutely be inherent in the print when it's an older print being used and the original negative isn't available. There are small splices of Singin' in the Rain that have blown out contrast because, guess what? The original negative no longer exists! With aged prints, contrast definitely becomes an issue.
Not all problems with a film transfer are created in post-processing. Sometimes it's the best you can do given the sources available.

Blu-ray.com reviews The Decline of Western Civilization Collection: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Decline-of-Western-Civilization-Collection-Blu-ray/127905/#Review
Buying the shit out of this bad-boy. Does SF usually offer their sets as part of their online sales events? I usually buy everything ahead of time but I'm trying to cut costs...just a little. I'm still buying, mind you, just maybe not Day One. Maybe. To save money.
Ordered mine over the weekend, with that $10 coupon I got from SF for answering their stupid survey (although tax and shipping erased the coupon).
Like you, there was just no way I was NOT getting this Blu, so I just bit the bullet on it.
I kinda wish I would have caught that Amazon.ca deal the other day who briefly had it for about $22 shipped to the US... but I'm just going to wait and see how the UK set compares.

Serpent and The Rainbow CE set for 2016!!!:
Scream Factory poses the important question:
This was the one title i was waiting for the most from them! Lets hope the wait is worth it as I have held off the UK release which I saw fairly cheap in HMV last week. Not sure about that new cover art.
I don't like the cover art either.
I don't care about the new cover art; I flip it to the original poster art the moment I unwrap it. Can't wait to hear about the special features though!!!
