    Forthcoming reviews
    In addition to this
    list
    , I’ll be picking the following titles from above
    as soon as the budget allows: the Film Noir box set (which
    probably isn’t Bureau 42 stuff), Shawshank Redemption (not
    B42 stuff), THX-1138, Tom & Jerry, Batman SE
    (preferably all of the films), Bringing Up Baby (not B42
    stuff), King Kong 2 DVD set (which I expect to get
    finished in time to tie into Peter Jackson’s version),
    Blade Runner SE (in addition to the Director’s Cut already
    in the pipe), Batman Animated Series, Superman Animated
    Series, V: The Series, Wonder Woman: The Series, and (if
    they release them) Animaniacs, and possibly the first
    season of Lois & Clark, before it all went downhill.
    If they can get the 1960s Batman series out, I’ll be
    looking at that, too.

      Batman SE (preferably all of the films)

      I would actually prefer if they sold ’em 2 by 2. I loved the first and
      appreciated the second, so on average I really liked the 2 Burtons. Then I
      hated the 3rd (it was entertaining, but SO stupid), and saw one scene of the
      4th and decided that was enough.

      I don’t need the “oh! lets do
      it like the camp 60’s version! With suit-nipples!
      ” movies, so I’m not
      buying it as a 4 movie box set.

        The Batman films follow the same pattern as the
        Superman films; great start, decent second
        outing, very different but not terrible third, and then a
        completely and utterly abysmal fourth. That’s half the
        fun of watching them. :)

          As much as I enjoyed the first one, I wish there’d been fewer plot holes to go with the stunning look and feel of the film. Despite Michelle Pfeiffer, I thought the second was a disaster, and nearly walked out of the theatre. I agree with you on the third, though Batman should be better-treated. And the fourth is pretty much the superhero Ishtar.

          Someone like Burton really should be paired with a decent scriptwriter. Or perhaps Sandy Collora could do an official Bat-project.

          Or, after the people who post at Bureau42 have finished fixing Star Trek for Paramount, we could then create a new Batman series.
