Just for the fun of it. Since most of us get downright indignant about great movies that aren't on DVD, how about the ones that add insult to injury by taking up space on the assembly line and store shelves...

Here's a modest start:
Kindergarten Cop
Mannequin
Hudson Hawk
The Waterboy

If I picked one of your all-time favorites, don't feel bad. I'm the one holding my breath until Out of the Past gets the DVD treatment.

hmmm...we did this already. Sorry.

I don't think it went anywhere though, so feel free to unleash the anger on undeserving DVDs.

We should really start a Movies That Shouldn't Be Taking Up Shelf Space at GreenCine But Are thread! How did all that CRAP get in? Who really needs to get The Cable Guy here? Go to Blockbusters!

Are you talking about the Out of the Past with Bob Mitchum and Kirk Douglas? That's a great movie.
Or are you talking about the mediocre remake with Jeff Bridges and James Woods? No, Against All Odds is on DVD. Am I missing something? You mentioned Mannequin, how does Out of the Past work into that conversation?

The Doors (by Oliver Stone). Its 138 minutes. That's over two hours. Return of the King, it is not.

Sure, there's a car wreck scene, awesome naked boobs, rock and roll. But NO explosions. NO guns. There are drugs involved not enough car chase scenes.

I saw this back when it originally rolled, stoned, and loved it. I watched it about a year ago, sober, and thought, 'man, I justed fixed dinner, put my laundry in the dryer and left a message on my mom's machine while watching this movie. It sure encourages you to do many things EXCEPT watch it.'

Absolutely! Out of the Past is one of the finest noirs ever made and an unforgettable film which often nudges its way onto my top ten list and it should be on DVD
