Default What forgotten movies would you like see come to Blu-ray?

I have seen numerous threads about people asking about their favourite movies ever being released on Blu-ray. Most of the those titles are pretty obscure or forgotten. Just wondering what obscure movies you would like to see come to Blu!

I would like to see:
Boogie Nights
Far and Away
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Howard the Duck
Gremlins
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Fire in the Sky

The Rocketeer - it desperately needs a new release. The DVD is a recycled non-anamorphic transfer from the Laserdisc with Dolby 2.0 Surround and has a grand total of one extra - a horrible quality trailer.

And I second Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Dick Tracy (1990) would look amazing on a BD50.

The Resurrected

This pretty faithful Lovecraft adaptation's only DVD release I know of is 4:3 pan/scan.

I have/had a few non-anamorphic DVDs. I remember paying $30 for the original X-Files DVD, and found out after getting my first HDTV what anamorphic was, and how this disc wasn't. I bought the DTS version [new] for about $7 a couple of years ago—it is anamorphic. I will most likely get a BD version of it if/when it is released.

I bought The Rock on BD because my DVD version is non-anamorphic. I will most likely get Enemy of the State on BD for the same reason.

Some Kind of Wonderful
A Man Called Horse
The Man From Earth
After Hours
La Dolce Vita

Pi
Name of the Rose (Name der Rose, Der)
Looking for Mister Goodbar
Romancing the Stone
Vision Quest
Rounders
The Hustler
One Crazy Summer
The Gambler
Five Easy Pieces
Barfly
Cinema Paradiso
Dragonslayer

YES! That is one title I will happily pay Fox's exorbitant prices for.
