Bureau 42 documents have moved

With the recent server change, there has been a slight relocation of some of the files we have out there with hints about what’s coming. Our list of possible upcoming reviews is here, my own personal DVD collection is here, and the list of everything that we’ve ever reviewed under the 42 point system is available here. Finally, we have a schedule of everything we can tack a definite date to available here. I should mention that this is a little out of date. I’ll be moving house in March, so I want to review a number of DVDs that I’ll lose access to before then, namely Abbott and Costello’s Jack and the Beanstalk, Chicken Run, Dead Like Me: Season One, Harvey, Joe’s Apartment, Mary Poppins, and The Wizard of Oz. If you have any preferences from among those titles, now is the time to speak.

    Would this be a bad time to mention that it’s probably temporary, and things will likely get straightened out (one way or another) in a day or so? I’ve just been busy with the day job. (Swapped out a router last night at 1am, for instance.)

    Also, you have to have two reviews of "The Wizard of Oz" – one for the normal soundtrack, and one for the Pink Floyd soundtrack. And that’s twice as much work, so you may want to postpone it.

      And, is the Mary Poppins the “original” or the cleaned-up 40th anniversary edition? The girlfriend bought the latter, and the vastly improved sound quality is well worth the price of admission. (Haven’t even gotten round to watching the extras yet.)

        Yeah. Go with The Wizard of Oz.

        On the subject of reviews, since we do martial arts films (Okay, so Kill Bill contains a heavy dose of fantasy, as does the Wire-Fu genre. BTW, you can see the epic meeting between the Timeshredder and David Carradine here and here. It lasted perhaps 5 seconds), can more conventional fight films also be reviewed? I just saw Million Dollar Baby, and I’ve enjoyed a number of other films of the genre. Since I’m uncertain, I’ll go with the majority. If people think it’s a bad idea, I won’t bother.

        Or would it be a good idea, but only occasionally?

        What say you, Bureauites? Do boxing and other fight films belong here, or will that just lead to everything being thrown into the ring?

          Well, it depends on the film.

          Back to martial arts films, can we be expecting a review of “Versus” sometime?

            Well, Versus is probably the most “genre” film EVER. It’s got wire-fu, magic, zombies, sci-fi… It’d be nice if it were reviewed before Undead comes out in NA.

    DVDs
    Dead Like Me is an odd show, but I kinda like it. Hope it hasn’t gotten cancelled as rumored. Harvey is one of my favorites, and Joe’s Apartment is really funny. For some reason, a number of friends really can’t deal with the cockroaches though. Maybe they’ve actually had to live with them or something, but I loved this movie.

    Speaking of DVD libraries…
    FWIW, and at the expense of umasking my alias ;-), my collection is at http://www.rdrop.com/video_search/servlet/EPMD . Unfortunately, I’ve moved and am renting out the house with the theater in it, which I miss.

      Impressive. You do seem to be missing a
      great entry
      from one of your most heavily represented
      genres. Amazon.com only has used copies starting at about
      $50, but Amazon.ca (linked above) has new copies starting
      at about $27US.

        Out of curiousity, do they ship to the US (since, IIRC, Canada is Region 1)?

          They do. I’d recommend that film to anyone who doesn’t
          mind watching somewhat explicit lesbian love scenes,
          actually. It’s gorgeous, poetic, and loaded with visual
          metaphors.
