    Most useless list ever for me. I kinda like Airheads but feel no need to own it. I like Liz Hurley but she couldn't save that pile of crap even in that tiny bikini. Where the fuck is Ravenous and Strange Days? Bigelow won a fucking Oscar and got another nomination this year for fucksakes, why not cash in on that? It's a list of movies with tiny to non-existent fanbases and will probably kill this deal before anything can come from it. None of these are gonna sell shit. I wonder if AB will give em menus?:D:eek::rolleyes:

    I'll wager they'll all have no Menus, and no Features. We are talking about Anchor Bay here...they just go further down the drain as they go now.

    So, AB still has Phantasm? Then yes, that should be out now. Also, Beastmaster. Beastmaster and Phantasm. Make it happen Anchor Bay! I still remember picking up the their first release of Beastmaster way back whenever. Great movie and fantastic release.

    Anchor Bay supposedly still have the rights to Phantasm, but definitely no longer have the rights to The Beastmaster.

    Not a Blu Ray, but The Beastmaster was released again on an Echo Bridge dvd set called 'Fantasy & Action 6 Pack set'.

    Several new titles announced for August 6th, most notably Lucas and Silver Streak!

    Also, The Pick-Up Artist, Stuck On You, and Wing Commander.

    I'm in for Silver Streak.

    ...though this is Anchor Bay, so the chances of not even getting a menu are quite good.

    ^ True. But I think the DVDs of both Lucas and Silver Streak are barebones, and for some strange reason I never ended up buying them. So I'll picking these up for the movie alone.

    Yeah but that was (hopefully) a one time thing.

    Though again, would love to see Freaked by Halloween.

    I would love to see Freaked done by another company. Perhaps Scream Factory, hint hint.

    The DVD is packed with extras, and I'd like to be able to sell it off once it hits blu-ray. It'd probably lose the extras if Anchor Bay did a blu-ray.

    Fox needs to release Omen IV the Awakening on blu-ray. It would be amazing to see the psychic fair on fire in HD.

    One time? They've done it multiple times.

    I'd love to see Freaked get released by a solid company with a consistent track record...like Shout Factory.

    And this is the company that still holds the rights to Halloween. Fuck. They need to just let Halloween and Phantasm go and just fade into obscurity already.

    Odd that their sub-licensed Fox titles are the only ones with no menus.

    I just ordered Airheads for around $9 new through a third party vendor on Amazon. After receiving the notification that it shipped, I saw that they used DHL. I'm hoping to get it by September.

    Yeah, they just don't give a shit.

    They are pretty much just slapping them on a disc and that's it. Even Mill Creek beats them with their licensed Blu-ray releases!
