I've still not bought THE SQUEEZE, Reaps, though I've watched my mates and it looks great.

I've only three of the Archive titles which I bought when they first started:

RAIN PEOPLE
GET TO KNOW YOUR RABBIT
CRESCENDO

I have watched a whole bunch of my mates's though and they are for re most part very good. I'm just adverse to paying top money for glorified copies.

Me too, but it seems to be the only option right now. Well, legally anyway.

So I've just gone for one - Roger Vadim's Pretty Maids All in a Row. Always wanted to see it, and after watching Arthur Penn's rather terrific Little Big Man the other day and being enamoured by a certain Aimée Eccles who plays a young Indian girl, I IMDB'ed her and discovered she was in it. How big a role she has I don't know...

I feel like I've disqualified myself from this thread with my negative comments from earlier, but let us know how it goes Delirium, hopefully it will be a good positive experience !

What's the quality like of the paper sleeves with the artwork? I bought the MGM dvd-r of Enter The Ninja, and it was terrible quality. Looks like they took it to a bootleg printer to get it done. It looked really cheap and amateurish.

I'd not rule out buying more of them, I'm just happy to wait until I've an abundance of money or I find them a lot cheaper! To me if it's a toss up between an Archive title or something on Blu-ray the latter will always win out and I've only got a finite amount of money to spend. The days of spending £100s a month on films for my collection are well and truly over for me now!

Default THE SQUEEZE

Artistically the cover leaves alot to be desired,but it does seem to be printed on decent quality paper,although not the most eye catching of covers.

These two are most likely the next ones for me along with Night School and Killer Party.

I have read that the image on Wild Wild Planet isn't great, but most likely the best we'll ever have.

No extras but.... the Warner manufactured-on-demand disc is actually a considerable improvement over the PAL Metrodome release, as colors are far bolder and better saturated. Letterboxed at 1.78:1 with anamorphic enhancement, no digital clean-up has been done, so the print source still has its share of nicks and specs, but its still a pleasing image, with the grain and picture darkness witnessed in the PAL release not being a problem at all here. The mono English audio track is very impressive, with clear dialog mixed well with Paul Ferris' hip, progressive score. DVD Drive In
