I care (deeply), but I don't see it happening anytime soon; too many Bronson movies are pretty small potatoes. A lot of catalog titles are going to be out on Blu-ray before they get to the likes of Assassination and St. Ives, methinks. There is supposed to be a remake of Death Wish coming out in 2009, though (gag), so maybe the original will make a BD debut then.

Death Wish is a Paramount title so I guess we will be seeing that when the remake draws near.
There are also rumors about The Mechanic remake so expect that also when the time comes.

Most of Bronson's titles are not what people call essential classics so I think you'll have to wait a while.

I also care. Huge Bronson fan.

Just finished reading the book Bronson's Loose about the making of the Death Wish movies. Great read.

I'd like to see The Evil That Men Do, 10 To Midnight, The Mechanic, of course all the Death Wish pictures especially 2-4 as well as Telefon and The Stone Killer two movies that have yet to even be released on DVD

A lot of these are only available pan and scan so it'd be nice just to see them released in widescreen at least.

I would love to see a boxset of these titles:

Chato's Land
Mr. Majestyk
Breakheart Pass
Breakout

Those are some fine tough guy action movies, but heck, if you guys don't want them, then maybe they can put 'em out in Red.

Charles Bronson doesn't "put" out any movies, hes been dead for five years. And he's never put out a movie in his life.
Although I agree that most of his stuff he did later in his career was crap, the same can't be said about his old stuff.

I liked the Death Wish series and the movie where he was a boxer but that's all i can remember of him.
A death wish boxed set would be cool.
It's a shame that he was sort of relegated to being a poor man's Stalone but he wasn't very good looking and just didn't have the charisma to be 'A' list action hero,sort of like Fred Ward.
