2016 drawing with clues:
As it has already been mentioned on another forum Lone Wolf and Cub is in there.
I'd guess that the left side is Three Kings (1999)
And the queen in the car is Manchurian Candidate?
And Easy Rider looks to be in there
Oh, and Chimes at Midnight?
Criterion already released Easy Rider on blu-ray years ago.
High Resolution version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/136089780/Criterion_2016.png
Chimes at Midnight would be excellent. I've been holding off on that since all editions I've heard of were poor quality. I'm all in for Lone Wolf and Cub.
Easy Rider wasn't released as stand alone, so they may be doing that and it appears to be merged with Chaplin's The Kid and The Bicycle Thief (the kid is carrying the motorcycle).
Around the web these appear near certainties:
Here Comes Mr Jordan
McCabe and Mrs Miller
Story of the Last Chrysanthemum
Taste of Honey
Whale and the Squid
I'm not convinced of Dr. Strangelove, unless that's their idea of Cupid on board. Although Sony probably would license it and Criterion would release it if they could.
Yes, but only as part of a box set. Criterion has been rereleasing films from that set as solo features over the past few years.
I'm thinking the falling angel aspect of that hint might be a separate hint for a separate film.
Regardless, seems like a waste of a clue. I imagine all the Criterion collectors already own it.
And for anyone who doesn't own the America Lost And Found boxset, you're really missing out, especially if you're a fan of American independent cinema. I loved going through that set.
would love to see Night of the Living Dead released by them or someone else with the new martin Scorsese transfer and 9 min found deleted scene
I concur with everything above. But, that really looks like Fonda's motorcycle in there and I can't think of why else it would be there. Unless they are going to release that sequel/prequel thing.
It's probably right. I didn't realize they had released individual blu-rays of Last Picture Show or Five Easy Pieces, probably because I already had the set and had no need for them.
With Scorsese's involvement Criterion seems likely, he's helped them on a few restorations hasn't he (besides his own)? But it's not in the clues for 2016 at least. I have a nagging suspicion that Synapse might have it. Either way 2016 seems unlikely. But if it's with Shout or most any other distributor it may be in the pipeline for 2016 yet! And gives us Martin while your at it! And if you can find the original footage for the 3hr cut all the better!
So, no Kurosawas in 2016? That'd be a shame, as there's a lot they released on DVD that need to be done HD
I suck at guessing clues...is there anything in that drawing that might indicate an ELEMENT OF CRIME upgrade?
Still kind of ticked that they've never released Naked Prey on blu. I've been waiting for years.
Fantastic Planet coming to Blu-ray from Crtierion in June! https://www.criterion.com/films/28636-fantastic-planet
Also, a new 4k restoration of Dr. Strangelove getting the Criterion treatment, so probably gonna upgrade my Blu-ray to the Criterion on that title: https://www.criterion.com/films/288...-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-bomb
If you are region free I'd recommend the masters of cinema release. It has a booklet and an interview with a film historian. Not the best stuff, but not bad either, and the picture quality is good. Certainly an upgrade from the DVD.
From Criterion's phrasing it doesn't look to be a new restoration, but the same 4k master, with hopefully a better transfer for the Blu-ray.
I've got the initial digibook, and even bought the awesome steelbook re-release while on sale, and I'll certainly be picking this up too. Although I'm disappointed a HD version of Duck and Cover wasn't included, along with other cold era footage Criterion put on the original LD.
They also tagged the following post as 1942:
It's a near certainty that The Cat People is coming, and the hope is that more Val Lewton is in the pipeline. I imagine I Walked with a Zombie would be of great interest and I consider The Curse of the Cat People (1944) to be superior to the first. An Eclipse styled boxset may not be out of the question.
