The latest remaster from MGM in celebration of its 90th anniversary is the Sergio Leone-directed The Man with No Name Trilogy that launched Clint Eastwood into international stardom. The release comes almost exactly four years to the day after MGM's previous release of the same set, and the first two films—A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More—are identical to the earlier discs. The third film, however, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, first seen on Blu-ray in 2009, has received a long-hoped-for restoration under the auspices of the Cineteca di Bologna. Although the audio options remain unchanged from the 2009 release (a subject that has prompted protests from some corners), the upgrade in image quality is dramatic.

Genre: Sci-fi | The Criterion Collection #660

A landmark collaboration between writer H. G. Wells, producer Alexander Korda, and designer and director William Cameron Menzies, Things to Come is a science fiction film like no other, a prescient political work that predicts a century of turmoil and progress. Skipping through time, Things to Come bears witness to world war, disease, dictatorship, and, finally, utopia. Conceived, written, and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work, this megabudget production, the most ambitious ever from Korda’s London Films, is a triumph of imagination and technical audacity.

Genre: Drama, Horror, Thriller | Nominated for 2 BAFTA Film Awards | USA, UK

In this lugubrious but brilliantly realized adaptation of Henry James' classic novella The Turn of the Screw, 19th century British governess Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr) arrives at a bleak mansion to take care of Flora (Pamela Franklin) and Miles (Martin Stephens), the wealthy household's two children. Outwardly the children are little darlings, but the governess begins to feel that there's something unwholesome behind those beatific smiles. After several disturbing examples of the children's evil impulses, Miss Giddens gets information from the housekeeper (Megs Jenkins) that suggests that the children may be possessed by malign spirits – or are all these events just the products of Miss Giddens's own imagination? The best and most frightening vignette in The Innocents occurs when the governess casually kisses young Miles, then recoils in horror when she realizes that someone other than Miles has kissed her back.
