Cold Turkey (1971) should be on the list. Warners Archive did release a MOD DVD-r of the movie some time ago, but it was a non-anamorphic matted letterbox release, and the soundtrack had an annoying echo effect. (It's now out of print.) The LD was release in Academy ratio, with the original mono soundtrack.

What about The Compeat Tex Avery? Most of those cartoons are still missing on DVD/BD.

Cold Turkey just came out on Blu-ray, so now my former post is irrelevant.

Thanks for that, I've been looking out for this movie since you posted, but now I guess I'll break down and get the bluray or wait for others to drop the LD prices.

Hunchback of Notre Dame, The (1996) [7955 AS]

Just discover this release yesterday ! forget the dvd/bd...this is sweet cream,they dont even handle the comparison on any parameter


Every single version of that movie that ever exists will always be terrible. Unless...on 7955 AS did they completely remake the movie sans the dude from Seinfeld, the jokes, the songs, the ending, and all the sequals in this now “series”?


the movie is not that bad man, and the LD transfer is flawless imho, i was bored about the dvd pixelation and the bd dead textures

Where Eagles Dare on the US letterbox copy is the only version with the UK/European Intermission and Entr'acte. The picture is overall good with cue changeover marks and the sound is excellent with nice bass and panning of the dialogue maintained.

Can I nominate the Japanese pressings of Pet Shop Boys: It Couldn't Happen Here? They are the best available releases of the film on any format and are likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future, since a rights dispute is holding up any kind of future re-release on home formats and streaming services.

I have the American one. What’s special about the JP one?

US edition is pan and scan with a stereo soundtrack, whereas the Japanese ones are letterboxed with surround soundtracks.

Explorer Woman Ray (1989) [ID2228CT]

Not on DVD. At least not in the US or EU.

Haven't read the first few posts in quite some time.
As of now Twilight of the Cockroaches has been released on DVD, it may possibly be the same master used for the LD from the reviews I've read.

I thought the same thing from looking at amazon US reviews. I never managed to get a copy of the Jp LD and have not seen one for years. But, if it is anything like the Streamline version, it is awful. The darkness described in the reviews sounds like Streamline. I would love to know if they got the master from Japan or somewhere in the US?

Being Discotek, I would think Japan. It uses the Jp LD art for their DVD cover, too.

I'm 99% sure it is, same for Project A-ko.

On the bright side, the DVDs are readily available.

A-ko is 100% made from the Pony Canyon CAV disc. Discotek said as much when it was announced. Just as the previous CPM DVD had been. I guess the LD masters no longer exist either. I wish I had seen the Jp DVDs from the box set to see what they looked like. To know what master was used for the original. CAV source or actual LD master tape?
