Just reading the news of a Scorsese season at BFI (including forthcoming Blu-ray releases of Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Who's That Knocking At My Door?) and they mentioned the 4K-restored The Age of Innocence is being shown. I wonder if Eureka have managed to get hold of it, or do we think Criterion got there first? Be interesting to see who gets hold of it over here.

It's always been Sony/Columbia so far in the U.K.

Yes, and therefore could be potentially licensed by anyone with a Sony deal - at the moment that includes Criterion, Eureka and Indicator/Powerhouse. Have their been rumours about Criterion acquiring it? I wonder if they'd also release it in the UK or Eureka had already got dibs (presumably they didn't enter a Sony deal just to release mostly non-MoC titles). I guess I'll just have to be patient though!

MOC is on Twitter right now announcing new titles.

Charles Vidor's Cover Girl coming in February.
A Man For All Seasons as well.
From Eureka: Finding Forrester.

MOC and Indicator are really cornering the market on Twilight Time's backwash

Yup. I think I'm just totally done with TT at this point. There's no point for it anymore.

Right? I was actually thinking about picking up A Man For All Seasons during the sale (and missed it) but figured Indicator would release it, but this might be better. Though I assume it will be region locked. I'm region free but I still like getting titles that can play in region A players, and it appears Indicator's discs can so far.

Who has two thumbs and won't be even considering getting any Sony licensed titles from Twilight Time anymore?

According to Indicator, all their Sony titles will be Region Free.

According to the DVD Beaver review of Roxanne, that release is Region B locked, so I assume all of their Sony titles will be the same. I find it a little strange they're doing so if Indicator apparently don't have to.

I wonder if they have slightly different arrangements with Sony? After all, Indicator was started by some ex-Sony UK people, so they may have a few perks over Eureka. Either that, or Eureka are just enforcing region locking for whatever reason...or perhaps they just had to do that for Roxanne specifically since it has already been released by Sony themselves in another territory.

Finding. F***ing. Forrester. Of all the Van Sant films they could've done, they picked the absolute ****tiest one.

Really, there's something worse? Does it make your eyes bleed when you watch it?

Finding Forrester is not THAT bad, it's just a bland rehash of Good Will Hunting. It was shot by Harris Savides, so it at least looks great.

Restless looks good too. Doesn't matter, is still horrible

I have a soft spot for Finding Forrester, which I at least find to be an engaging hangout movie in addition to predictable feel-good pablum. It's a good deal better than Restless or Sea of Trees or even Promised Land (and probably Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, when I work up the courage to watch it).

For a "master of cinema," he's sure made a lot of high profile garbage.

Though Ford had the benefit of making 100+ films and not just twenty or so.

Seems like the Murnau Stiftung has an 50th anniversary collection out with new Blu-rays/DVD´s and of course they are without any subtitles:

It would be nice if MoC could upgrade their old Asphalt DVD.

I do not understand some of these Columbia picks at all. Has Indicator already snatched up the cream of the crop?
