any news on the following

a new Blade Runner DVD?


The NY Times (Dec. 13th, 2003) has named names on why the Blade Runner Special Edition 3-DVD set is on hold:

They say, "The avidly awaited, definitive version of Ridley Scott's science-fiction classic, "Blade Runner," won't be out on DVD anytime soon for stranger reasons.

When "Blade Runner" was being shot in the early 1980's, Bud Yorkin, a veteran television comedy producer, and Jerry Perenchio, now the C.E.O. of Univision, were the film's bond-completion guarantors. When the film went over budget, by contract they assumed ownership of the film. Paul Sammon wrote in his book "Future Noir: The Making of `Blade Runner' " that they hated the film, had bitter disputes with Mr. Scott and tried to take it away from him altogether.

The studio release, in 1982, contained superfluous narration and a tacked-on rosy ending. Mr. Scott removed both when he was allowed to make a "director's cut" in 1992, but it was, by his own account, a rush job.
Three years ago, Mr. Scott announced that he was working on a three-disc box set, which would offer all the versions of the film, including a new and polished director's cut with previously unseen footage and scads of bonus features. Then, at the end of 2001, Warner Brothers, which was planning to distribute the discs, pulled the plug. It did so, according to a producer who worked on the project, because Mr. Perenchio gave no sign that he would let them be released.

Mr. Perenchio, speaking through an assistant, had no comment on the situation. (Warner Brothers still sells the 1992 "director's cut," though the picture quality is mediocre.)"

Now, you might already know, or have guessed most, if not all, of the above, but let me say that the project is not dead. We still hope for the possibility that the BR:SE DVD set will be finished and released in our lifetimes. I expect that writing to Mr Perenchio will do no good and of course is not something this website supports... ~ An address associated with him is:

DVDFile.com have posted details on a tenth anniversary edition of Reality Bites which stars the likes of Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Steve Zahn and Ben Stiller. This single disc release will be available to own from the 8th June this year, and should set you back somewhere in the region of $19.95. As well as an anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the disc will include an audio commentary with director Ben Stiller, some deleted scenes, filmographies and trailers.

I remember seeing Reality Bites when at its release, but I don't remember too much of it, except the "My Sharona" singalong at at supermarked (or something). Is it any good?

King of New York

So is that movie any good, or what?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

So, in other words, I'm still safe buying the current versions of Psycho, Vertigo, Birds, and Rear Window?
