    I might be wrong, but cant you still buy TARANTULA in the Universal box set that contains 10 movies for like $50 bucks? Why pay $20 for a DVD-R of TARANTULA?

    I'm interested in The Brink’s Job since its a William Friedkin film. His movies are usually hit or miss (except Jade, which is both). I wish these MOD flicks were a tad cheaper.

    The Cat And The Canary is available in a boxset as well. Probably others.

    When I first read that one I thought it was the lost version from 1930 for a second there and almost popped a nut. But then the year 1939 sunk in and I realized it was the Bob Hope version.

    Makes me wonder... With Warner releasing silents MOD and MGM releasing public domain titles they have on MOD, will Universal release their material on say The Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame or more? I don't even know if they have anything of worth in their vaults. I've only heard of UCLA, Blackhawk and collector's prints.

    Even if it's fullframe might have no choice but to buy it anyway. Definitely on my must own lists of movies. Widescreen would be a plus just have to wait and see. This might be the only legit release it ever gets.


    Yes Seven-Per-Cent Solution was but its long out of print.

    I own the novel of The Island, but I never saw the movie. I remember reading the novel and thinking it wasn't very good. It has been years though, maybe I'll give the movie a try.

    This is the ONE MOD Program I have NEVER bought from, but I HAVE heard some of their flicks are full screen. I think SHRINKING WOMAN is, and, I have a sickening feeling THE ISLAND might be. Won't know until someone here bites the bullet and buys one.

    While one said the DVD of the film was in widescreen. I think Universal MOD program is the only one that's ignored by the DVD community. I don't see a single review for any of these releases on any site.

    I have been asking around, I seem to think a lot of these ARE widescreen. So, THE ISLAND might actually be LBX. Good. Wonder if TARANTULA is? And, SHRINKING WOMAN is LBX? That's good to hear, too. NO ONE talks about this particular MOD Program on ANY news sites. Can't figure out why.

    What about getting the Warner ones directly from Warner's site? I just about lost my shit when I learned RETURN/SALEM'S LOT hit DVD. I ordered it immediately, got a defective DVD and Warner replaced it for free. Which is why I order all my Warner DVD-Rs from them only.
