Will blind buy this just to watch. I believe this was the beginning of the end for Walter Hill.

80-minute documentary? Sold.

Universal (whenever they get around to releasing this in the US) will likely be bare-bones.

@HuggyBear73

Not even remotely. Walter Hill has since made many great Walter Hill films: Brewster's Millions, Crossroads, Johnny Handsome, Geronimo: An American Legend, Wild Bill, Last Man Standing, Undisputed and even Bullet to the Head, which I personally enjoyed.

And while Streets of Fire is my 2nd favorite from his filmography, the No. 1 spot goes to Extreme Prejudice, possibly the manliest movie ever made. Now, if we can just get it and SOF on a goddamn US or region free Blu-ray release, all would be right with the world. I'm getting sick of this UK only crap.

YES! I swear if it hadn't opened the same day as, "Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom" this film would've been a small hit! I love this one and I see it whenever it's on cable!

Still hanging on to my mint, but barebones Universal HDDVD copy, of which High-Def Digest awarded 4 out of 5 on PQ back in '07

@vanscottie, it didn't open the same day as Temple. It opened 9 days later on June 1st. It actually got beat opening weekend by four other films. Star Trek III (which opened the same day -June 1st- and was number one), Temple in it's second weekend, The Natural in its 4th weekend and even Breakin' in it's 5th weekend. Indy had nothing to do with the initial failure of Streets. It's was just poorly marketed and people didn't know what to make of "A Rock & Roll Fable." People eventually figured it out though. Ask any director, they'd rather have a film that lives forever than a hit that is quickly forgotten.

I like this movie I for one can't wait to see how it looks on Blu-ray. I would also like to see two other Michael Pare movie on Blu-ray and they are Eddie And The Cruisers & Eddie And The Cruisers (Eddie Lives) both movies are fantastic hope to see them released soon.

Diane Lane was really hot then, but I always laughed at her faces she makes when she's up there singing, LOL. Dafoe was cool and menacing as always. Rick Moranis was funny. Pare and Madigan made likable heroes. It was really quite cool.

Shout Factory should be all over this one...

They would show it much more care than Universal ever could...

I think I still have an original movie poster from this...worked for a theatre chain back when this was released...

Thought it was an okay movie though I wish the final confrontation had been better staged...

@jude5683 I suggest importing it.

Universal released this on HD DVD and as others stated, I'm waiting for Shout Factory to release this in the USA. But might import depending. Or it might be where HIGHLANDER (1986) UK is far superior compared to the USA release. Never know until there's a direct comparison available.

@filmczy: "Thought it was an okay movie though I wish the final confrontation had been better staged..."

A rather odd criticism, considering the final hammer-fight-turned-brawl was finely staged and impeccably well edited.

@Cliff, maybe in your neck of the woods but I was a theatre usher at Pacific Theatres in L.A. Calif. "Indiana..." opened that Weds, "Streets..." opened Friday. I remember cuz I HATED "Indiana" and loved "Streets" and told every patron who'd listen, go see "Streets" now!

@vanscottie... Not in my neck of the woods, in ALL necks of the woods. Streets opened June 1st. There are a million sources that site June 1st as opening day and box office data shows the weekend of June 1st-3rd as Streets of Fire's first weekend in theaters. Michael Coate, who is meticulous about box office research and details, lists June 1st as the opening day when both the Hollywood Pacific on Hollywood Blvd and the Avco Center in Westwood both opened Streets in 70mm on June 1st, 1984:
http://www.fromscripttodvd.com/70mm_in_los_angeles_1984.htm
Do you think your Pacific Theater got Streets before the Pacific on Hollywood or the Avco in Westwood?

This is also a link to the entire release schedule for major releases in 1984. It lists Temple as May 23rd and Streets as June 1st:
http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/year/1984

Also, here's the box office info from Streets of Fire's opening weekend that provides its opening weekend gross and adds no addition revenue from another week of play had it opened against Temple:
http://boxofficemojo.com/weekend/chart/?yr=1984&wknd=22&p=.htm

The reality is... NOTHING opened against Temple of Doom that first weekend. There are 2 possibilities A ) there was a single sneak preview of Streets the weekend of May 25th, although I can find no proof of any sneaks happening for Streets, or B ) Your memory of a weekend 29 years ago is faulty and the overlap of all of these films playing at the same time (which DID happen on June 1st) is a simple case of misremembering. I'm going to have to lean towards "B" as does all the evidence.

Does anybody know if this will be Region B locked? If so, I'll have to hang on to my HD-DVD release for now.
