For all the film buffs out there that love to talk about rare and unreleased movies comes a new collection from Amazon that showcases rarely seen “classics” (with quotations) and classics that never made it to DVD.
All of the titles are from movies that were released years ago, but only recently made there way to DVD. Right now there are around 2,000 titles available covering most major network and production companies. Most are available as a physical DVD and on demand, a good feature to have for those that are unsure of a title. Sometimes the nostalgia factor can wear off after a few minutes and your just left with a crappy movie. It’s much better to rent in these cases.
While browsing through the collection you will notice that most of them are rated from 4 to 5 stars. Lovers of classic cinema will find films they have never heard of before, but are well received by those that know about them.
After browsing for just a few minutes, I found some that look intriguing for their camp or artistic value. Seminole Starring Rock Hudson, Barbara Hale, Anthony Quinn and Lee Marvin (2011), Brothers Karamazov, starring Yul Brynner, released just this year. Jack the Ripper with Michael Caine. Class Act Starring Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid, Christopher ‘Play’ Martin. Abbott & Costello Meet Captain Kidd [Remaster], all look like they could be winners.
But it’s all a matter of taste. Go to Never Before on DVD, to peruse the selection. If you are a hoarder of rare films, you will not be disappointed.
