Rowdy Roddy Piper in glorious HD. [Insert kicking ass and chewing bubblegum quote here which relates to a bad Blu-ray related pun]. Needless to say, I'm day one on this and Scream Factory is going to be my second favorite series after the Criterion Collection.

Great news, especially with the promise of new supplemental material! I still can't get over how long the fight is between Piper and Keith, but I love this movie just the same. I'm picking this one up for sure.

I wonder if we'll ever get Prince of Darkness on Blu? I'd snatch that one up right away too. I always walk past that church and think of the film anytime I'm in the Little Tokyo portion of Downtown L. A. (BTW, it's now a performing arts theater or something like that.)

It is a great cover and they've been doing reversible covers on their Scream Factory releases (with the reverse side being from the original movie poster art). Don't you wish every studio would do this? I sure do!

Sure, It's cheese-ahoy with this film, but the 10-minute fist fight in the alley is probably the best 2-guy brawl in the history of the medium. It's worth the price just for this scene... a masterpiece of bat-weilding, crotch-kneeing, nostril-grabbing fight goodness.... and just because he wants his buddy to put the damn glasses on!

I was wondering why I woke up this morning with a strange urge to walk through downtown with a box of sunglasses and to get my ass knocked through a window by Meg Foster. Now I realize it was a premonition of awesome Blu-ray things to come.

I have come here to chew bubblegum and watch "They Live" on blu-ray.

And I'm all outta bubblegum.

Um, they did. It's called "Cripple Fight".

@chillwill it's more Big trouble in little China than it is prince of darkness if that helps. It's brilliant though. Satire conspiracy and some mantastic one-liners. Epic fight between Piper and Keith David.

John Carpenter's commentaries with Kurt Russell are always super entertaining. I hope they pair him up with Roddy and/or the FX supervisor. I'd love to see a good release of Prince of Darkness on bluray, another one of Carpenter's great lesser known films.

This could have been one of the great subversive films of all time (and it's still relevant). I just wish it hadn't taken the low brow approach. The cover art for the release pretty much nails it for what it is. I still enjoy it though, and I'll place my order.

I watched this a long, long time ago. It isn't all that bad. It is one of those movies that either you hate it or love it. For me, I wouldn't mind watching it again. I think it is one of those movies that stood the test of time. It doesn't have all that much special effects and the makeup isn't all that great, but the story is good and (bless his heart) Roddy Piper tries hard to do a good job in this movie. I think I'll bounce on this one when it is released. The worst thing that could happen is that I lose 2 hours of my life and a few bucks... what the hay... right?
