Hi. Just wondering if everyone could name a few of their favorite 80's movies that are not yet released on DVD...ones you can't wait to get. Legend of Billie Jean is a given (though there are un-official copies available). Others?
I'm waiting for "On The Right Track" with Gary Coleman. Cheers!

Not really considered 80s movies but I've longed for the Starrcades, Great American Bashes,and the short lived Crockett Memorial Cups (wrestling events)to be released onto DVD but it'll probably never happen since I think WWE owns the rights now.....

Gallon of Gas in my town: $3.05
Movie Ticket in my town: $8.75

Hold on! Are we talking 80's movies that you can't get on DVD at ALL...or 80's movies that you CAN get but haven't yet been released in a special edition format?

If that's the case, then for me it's: Trick or Treat (1986)

This awesome film did get a release in 2002 (but it was completely lacking in special features) so it was strictly a bare bones effort. Cult movie company Anchorbay were all set to release a 20th anniversary special edition version in 2006 but had to abandon it when they encountered problems with the music rights. Talk about a major bummer! [Frown]

Uh, A Midnight Clear has been available on DVD for years [Smile] Try Netflix!

THE LAST CHASE: Lee Majors and Burgess Merideth
THE KEEP: Man I want this so bad I can taste it.
DAMNATION ALLEY (think it was 80's)

And that damn movie from HBO about the government doing germ warfare experiments in a small town while the whole town finds dissected cows around thinking its Aliens....I can't remember the name of it.

Last time I checked "a Midnight Clear" was available for rent on Netflix not to buy. Also the cheapest price that you can BUY "A Midnight Clear" is for $89 on Amazon. Not what I would pay to add it to my collection at that price, therefore until the price comes down to $20 like a normal DVD; I considered it as a movie that you couldn't (wouldn't) get on DVD.

If Netflix has it available at least you can watch it. Note: Its 4:3, a decent transfer but again...4:3 and non-anamorphic...its not even letterboxed.

I'd also like to add:
THE FINAL OPTION (aka: Who Dares Wins in the UK)
PHANTASM II (I have no idea why this isnt' out R1)

Oh man, Hardbodies. I thought I was the only one to remember and love that movie.
I would love if "The Midnight hour" and "One dark night" would come out on DVD.

One Dark Night came out on DVD about 2 years ago [Smile]

You should be able to find it pretty easily... its even a 2 disc set. Not perfect quality, but very watchable!

I'd like to see The Midnight Hour - heard about it, but wasn't interested in paying over $100 for the out of print dvd and no one has it for rent [Frown]

Actually, a really good HD rip of "RAD" is available for sale online. I have a copy. Just look around.
Same for "Night Of The Creeps".

I, too, would love to have a true release of "Hardbodies", "The Legend Of Billie Jean", a Special Edition with extras of "The Breakfast Club", "Modern Girls" and "The Party Animal". More so the full soundtracks for "Hardbodies", "Modern Girls" and "Party Animal". I'm still missing tunes on the last two and nearly all for "Hardbodies". That is one extremely hard film to find music from on the Net. Still missing seven songs for "Modern Girls".
