Top 10 Movies that Need a Criterion Collection Release

The Top Ten

1 Nosferatu (1922)

Criterion are people I would trust to choose the right score for this movie (seeing as there are so many versions). But there's also the option of including multiple ones. It's such a significant movie, and one that would be perfect for the Criterion treatment. - OomlaGuhmaGagh

Most people have only heard of Nosferatu from Spongebob - 2storm

What's a criterion collection? - Skullkid755

Seriously! Why is this one not in the Criterion Collection already!?!

2 Psycho (1960)

Defined the horror/slasher and suspense genres. Definitely deserves to be in.

I though Psycho already had one due to how popular it is - 2storm

3 The General

Actually shows good information about how different governments work. - 2storm

Why is this one not even in? Great classical film! It’s on up there with Charlie Chaplin’s works in my opinion (which are in the CC already).

4 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Considered as one of the best western films of all time (if not the best), this one would make a great addition.

5 Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This is a movie that defined the teen genre of filmmaking (along with The Breakfast Club, which is already in the CC). This one would just be a great addition as well.

6 Star Wars

It should be a box-set of the Unaltered Cuts (like Harmy’s Despecialized Editions). None of that Special Edition nonsense.

7 Goldfinger

This one already got into the CC via Laserdisc in 1991, but I think should be rereleased. This is just one of the best spy films to ever be made. (I like the other 007 films too, but this one is simply just the best.)

8 Darkman

A HIGHLY underrated superhero movie that pays homage to the early pulp magazine characters/superheroes extremely well. Kudos to Sam Raimi for making this awesome flick!

9 Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Well, Life of Brian is already in, so why not this one?

10 Jurassic Park

Well my friends like it!

The Contenders

11 The Transformers: The Movie

Great movie.

12 Titanic

Titanic an amazing movie the movie of the century

13 Shaun of the Dead
14 There Will Be Blood
15 Jaws
16 To Kill a Mockingbird
17 Lost in Translation

Surprised this one doesn’t have a Criterion release already.

18 Rocky
19 The Holy Mountain
20 The White Ribbon
21 Iron Man
22 Notorious (1946)

It’s getting one in January 2019! Hallelujah!

23 American Graffiti
24 Alien
25 Aliens
26 The Empire Strikes Back
27 Raiders of the Lost Ark
28 Rear Window
29 Goodfellas
30 Metropolis
31 Roman Holiday
32 Bringing Up Baby
33 The Elephant Man

This was going to get a Criterion release on Laserdisc back in the 90s, but it got cancelled. There’s no time like the present (or more like a year or two away) to release this on Blu-ray and DVD.

37 Toy Story
