The gossip on MoC. Lists and polls are STRONGLY discouraged.

I guess that's one Twilight Time I'll be keeping.

Most of these non-MoC titles seem to have booklets but I've noticed that my copies of Marty and The Party don't. Does anyone know if either of these titles once had a booklet, or if Eureka has ever publically said that they're going the Arrow/BFI route of only including booklets in first pressings?

I seem to recall The Party never had a booklet.

Eureka Classics titles sometimes don't come with a booklet at all, and other times do but they are 'first pressing only' (as with Arrow, BFI). You can usually find out from the product listing on their site, or at least the initial announcement/press release.

Taking a quick look at my own collection, Marty didn't ever have a booklet, and neither did The Entity, The Party, Breakheart Pass and The Defiant Ones. However, titles that do include the booklet (at least on the first pressing) include The Vikings, Inherit the Wind, Iron Monkey, Flesh + Blood, Monkey Shines, Night of the Creeps, Picnic, and The Song of Bernadette.

I imagine it’s being collapsed down into a standard Amaray release like Police Story

It's already two standard Amarays in a hardbox, though advertised as a limited edition, so there probably will be a scaled-down reissue

Yes, into a single Amaray, like Police Story.

Yes, and minus booklet content of course.

Eureka/Masters of Cinema was always a label that I looked forward to their announcements every month. It was always interesting and often down right exciting. That feeling is becoming more and more few and far between. Golem will be the only release that’s on my radar. For their sake it’s a good thing they have a solid relationship with the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation, otherwise they would be a non factor. It’s a shame.

I usually feel the same : it has changed over the years.
Still, this year alone, they brought us Human Desire, Shoah - The Four sisters, Wheels on Meals, Irma la douce, The White Rheindeer, The Song of Bernadette, One Two Three, November, The Woman in the Window, The Holy Mountain, Last Hurrah for Chivalry + Hand of Death, Donbass, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Incident, The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, High Noon (in a lavish release), 3 Sammo Hungs, The Fate of Lee Khan, Der Golem, and they'll finally release these 2 Fuller movies otherwise only avaiable at Twilight Time.
It's not that bad.

As for their relationship with the FWMF, I'd love to see an English-friendly release of The Loves of Jeanne Ney. Alpha-Omega also restored The Loves of Pharaoh, but their release is very expensive and hard to get.
