Movies I'm Waiting for On DVD

by alterna21 | created - 06 Jun 2012 | updated - 7 months ago | Public

I'm dying for these titles to come out on DVD. I wish I knew who decided which movies get a DVD release because I would plead the case for all these titles. Well fingers crossed for the future I guess.
