Why can't they just release them as regular budget dvd's.

If these cheap ass companies can do it i'm sure the majors can.

These are made to order so the outlay is significantly less than when they have DVDs made. With titles like these, which more than likely they think will shift 100's of units rather than 1000's, the make to order on DVD-R route is likely the most cost effective scenario from a business standpoint.

At least that's how I think it works. Could be the majors are just being tight arses.  ;D

Interesting isn't it? Some of the other 'make to order' companies have released some real treats lately so hopefully we'll see some really cool stuff from MGM somewhere down the line.

Better to have it released this way than not at all in my view.

I tried to license this from MGM but they wanted heaps of money and said we'd have to pay for a new master. Pete Walker even tried to buy it back and they didn't want to know.

These seem to have passed me by. Is there a thread listing them?

Thanks Jonny. Some interesting stuff there...

Great to see Warners have Carny on DVD

Wish TCM would release Tod Browning's The Unknown as a stand-alone disc. At the moment I think it's only available in their Lon Chaney collection.

I've read that HOTLS is full frame and poor quality. I'd certainly wait for a more detailed review before putting down money on it.

I had a feeling they would be going with the available master.  They never did a digital master on that film.

I was thinking of maybe getting White Buffalo but end of the day it's just a dvd-r.
