More "I wish it'd come out on DVD"

Watching Start the Revolution Without Me last night, stirred memories of another classic of the same era. Sadly, The Last Remake of Beau Geste hasn't reached DVD status ... yet (I shall remain optimistic about this).

More favourites:

Blue Money: Tim Curry as a Irish taxi driver in London, struggling to break into show business ... until the day he drives off with a suitcase full of mob protection money while his fare is "collecting" from a client. Billy Connolly appears as a violent Scottish nutcase hitchhiker who won't go away.

Z.P.G.: An odd little dystopia film that still stays in my head, even though I only saw it once, late at night (okay, early in the morning) when I was about 16-17. Then again, mebbe it sticks because it starred Oliver Reed ***grin***. Either way, I'd like to see it again.

More dystopia, of the quirkier kind: Max Headroom. I want the whole series!!!!! With full commentary on every episode by Matt Frewer!!!!!

On a happier note, I HAVE discovered that Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit IS available on DVD ($45.00 at Chapters.ca and $18.00 at A&B ... gee, wonder who I should order it from?) ... ghosties with attitude!!!!!!
