How come certain movies DVD's (duh) are not released on DVD's?

Like "The Seven-ups" or "Cinderella Liberty".

Those are both great movies.

Maybe there is not a large audience to justify the release? Perhaps they cannot find the master tapes?

Yeah, I've been waiting for Gumball Rally to come to DVD forever. Don't think it will ever happen.

The really sad thing though is that I saw LASER BLAST in the theater.

Is that your way of saying you're an old fart or just have bad taste in movies?

Lord, that was a shitty movie!

And Dennis Weaver is an anti-gun fuck too.

A little bit of both. Of course as a twelve year old you have hope when you see a title like Laser Blast. Holy crap that was a let down, and my standards were pretty low. Man, what crappy entertainment we had to deal with as kids. Kids these days have it so good. Man, I woulda killed to be able to have a modern computer with modern games back then.

Dunno. It took a lot of calling and such to get Sony to release "The Critic" on DVD.

There were some good movies in '78. Hell, you could have seen "Midnight Express" and been scared for life.

Worse, when I was 10 my parents made the mistake of taking us kids to see "Sunday Bloody Sunday." Talk about scared for life. WTH were they thinking?

Well, my older brother took me to see night of the living dead when I was six.

Even back then I know that a car could outrun and out manuver a late 1940's / early 1950's semi truck.

If you lived in SoCal and ever traveled the old I-5 Grapevine then you know what I am talking about.

Of course, today, it is HORRIBLY dated, but if you can get past that, it's still an interesting movie. I bought it on VHS for my dad a few years ago, as he'd been wanting to see it again after not seeing it since the early 80s.
