I just saw on IMDB that this is coming out, on Blu-Ray too.

I don't have it on DVD. I think I'll have to get it.

I saw this too. I wonder what the extras are? I'm going to check it out. I also just saw a commercial for the "brat pack" re-release with extra features.

I picked up the "Risky Business" Blu-ray today and plan on watching it tonight. Jealous Nick?

The extras are video commentary by Tom Cruise, Paul Brickman, and Jon Avnet. Plus- 25th anniversary retrospective in HD, Original screen tests in HD, and Director's cut of final scene in HD.

Not quite as much fun as 'borrowing' my dad's Porsche, but definitely better than getting chased around town all night by Guido the killer pimp.

I watched the movie last night and tonight I plan on viewing the extras. I was once of the idea that I wouldn't replace most of my 80's movies with Blu-rays because how good could the picture and sound be for an 80's movie? And I must now say if they remaster it correctly, watching and listening to an 80's movie on Blu is almost mesmerizing the first time through.

Nick, give us your thoughts once you're done being a U-boat Commander.

Is there anything exclusive to the Blu-ray or are the extras the same on the standard DVD?

Will do Valley... Once you're through being out in daddy's car... Probably being chased by Guido the killer pimp...

...Time of your life, huh kid? [Wink]

PS: Love that bit: "OK, so who's the U boat commander?"

Ok, I watched the extras last night and the director's original vision for the ending was rather interesting. The screen test with Cruise and De Mornay was cool to watch. Very unique behind the scenes look at the making of the movie. I'm going to wait until a later date go listen to the commentary.

journey, I'm pretty sure the extras are the same for the DVD.

Sooooooo, Nick and Valley, do you think it is worth upgrading to the Blu-Ray?


"PS: Love that bit: "OK, so who's the U boat commander?" "

I think Valley was watching "Das Boot" the other night... [Big Grin]

jdoc, the question on if you should go Blu all depends on how must picture and sound enhances your viewing pleasure. For several folks it is minimal or not worth the investment it will require. To truely go HD, you don't only need the Blu-ray player, but the HDTV and surround system. I'm someone that has always invested in the future, it is a costly but still a rewarding hobby for me.

btw, from our previous convos, I believe you already know about everything I just said and even more than me on the subject, but I was just trying to answer your question as a general statement for anyone thinking about making the leap.

Thanks Valley!

Yeah, I've got the HDTV, HD Dish etc. I do however need a Blu-Ray player and a new HD sound system. I'm still using my old (10 yrs) 5.1 surround sound system. It's still really nice, but it's not up to HD standards. I thought I would start off with a Blu-Ray player first. After talking to a few of you (you, Nick, Noms others) here on the rewind I think I'll go with a Sony Playstation because of the obvious benefits and because I've wanted to get back into some cool games again. I haven't played anything since Duke Nukem about 10 years ago and that was on a PC. That being said, I was wondering how much better is the "picture" experience? I have an up-converting DVD player that does a really good job, and, I know that HD is a much finer resolution than a standard DVD 852x480 vs 1920x1080 HD.

Hey.... Look what I found. Check this out:

Look at each picture first, then, mouse over each picture to see the HD comparison. WOW!!!

I think this answers it... [Big Grin] Damn! Now I HAVE to spend more money... [Cool]

The PS3 is an awesome choice for US users that enjoy movies and games, it has a built in wireless card for system updates as well. I must warn though, online gaming is quite addictive. Also, with a plasma tv certain movies almost have a 3D effect in 1080p. I'm hoping to get the 60 inch Pioneer Kuro someday if the price would just drop a little more.

Does anyone know if I can actually get to Joel's parents house if I work it into an upcoming Chicago trip? I have the address, but I've heard it is in a private neighborhood.

"So your folks are going out of town? You've got the place all to yourself? Sometimes you just have to say WTF .. make your move!"

Watching "Risky Business" right now..

I think that if you channel your inner Ferris Bueller, you can make it into any private neighborhood.

Nevermind, I just looked it up here on the Rewind site. The place where I go see fireworks on the 4th of July every year is about 10 minutes from that house in Wilmette. I wish I would've known that earlier! I doubt that it's a private neighborhood but I can find out for ya.
