and for $19.95 apiece, they'll burn a DVD-R and ship you the movie in a standard plastic case with cover art. There are no extras except the trailer, if it's available; there isn't even scene-by-scene chaptering.

Virtually none of the movies in this collection has been available on DVD before. Many never even made it to VHS.

Really, you can't beat that (or the four-yr. olds) w/ a stick.
Minions should go there & vote for what they'd like made available for the edification of the great unwashed. And suggest we'd all love to get some of those crappy WB tee vee shows from the distant past.
