Re: Criterion ~ The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog Blu-ra

I actually liked the score on Piccadilly but to each their own. Same here. I guess I probably haven't watched Piccadilly in a few years, but I recall enjoying the score. But then I'm not as annoyed as others are by Maria Newman. I'll definitely be picking this one up and I'm glad that I resisted th...

Re: Greed DVD/Blu-Ray

At least the Warner Archive exists but I think they've realized that silents don't sell as well as Hanna Barbera cartoons. Right--but isn't that the point of the Archive?

Re: NEW KICKSTARTER: BEAUTY'S WORTH (1922)

Received my copy yesterday. I'm really impressed with the quality of the print and transfer--it's honestly about as good as one can hope for. Probably at Criterion/MoC levels of beauty (seriously). Super happy to have this in my collection! Thanks, Ed! :mrgreen:

Re: Czech NFA releases and news

I echo Battra92's sentiments. I've never been able to figure out how to order from these European archives that only accept bank transfers. I've had the same problem trying to order from Cineteca Italiana. I'd love to support the efforts of these organizations. Anyone in the US figure out how to mak...

Re: The Salvation Hunters

I just received my copy of The Salvation Hunters in the mail the other day. Haven't had time to watch it yet, but I'm very much looking forward to it! I'm glad I waited rather than caving in and watching one of the low quality YouTube uploads that have been around. I also ordered five other Edition ...
