Picked up on Scream Factory Blu Ray Prince Of Darkness and the killer wasp horror comedy Stung, also on Blu I got The Manhattan Project which is a blind buy for me and one that I have been wanting to watch for ages now and lastly the fun 80s Action thriller Opposing Force aka Hell Camp starring the cool Tom Skerritt.

The Manhattan Project is a good thriller, sort of like WarGames with some really nice performances from John Lithgow; Christopher Collet, who was also very good in First Born; and a young Cynthia "Sex in the City" Nixon. Apart from the stealing of the fissionable material--a well-done, fun scene--I don't find it unbelievable at all. Indeed, there actually was, as I recall, a high school student back in the 80s, who, on his own, came up with a design for a workable thermonuclear device for a science class paper. The U.S. Government came in and classified his paper as "top secret." [Smile] I think that you'll like it.

Yeah looking forward to checking out The Manhattan Project Crash and I did keep thinking to myself where had I seen Christopher Collet before and that is it,it was Firstborn which I also have on Blu Ray up on my shelf which is a decent little movie with a great performance by Peter Weller and was known as Moving In when it was released to VHS/Beta here in the UK back in 84!

Peter Weller is really excellent in a rare villainous role in First Born. He was one of those actors who is really solid in everything he does but who rarely gets any credit. The other Peter, Peter Coyote, was like that too in the 80s, good and overlooked.

Yeah I like Peter Coyote Crash,he is one of those actors that tends to go sometimes unotticed yet he always gives it his all and he's got a ton of credits to his name!

Picked up on Blu Ray a double bill of Empire Pictures 80s sci fi action in the Eliminators and Dungeon Master aka Ragewar, also on dvd I got a Eric Roberts action thriller called The Butcher which is a blind buy but it was that dirt cheap I thought it worth a gamble!

I believe that Eric Roberts has more movie and TV credits that any other living actor! He must work every day of the year.

Some recent Blu Ray pick ups all from the Kino Classics line which had a sale earlier in the month!

I got No Retreat No Surrender,Assassination, Stephen King's Needful Things, They're Playing With Fire and lastly Revenge Of The Ninja with Sho Kosugi.

Excuse the poor quality photo as there's a lack of light due to it being pitch black outside!

There's definitely some cool stuff there, Warrior. I also own that same No Retreat No Surrender blu-ray,
and in all honesty i enjoyed it far more than i dare to admit ! [Smile]

On saturday i received the latest batch of Vinegar Syndrome titles (Demon Wind, Blood Beat, A Woman's Torment,
and the Prime Evil / Lurkers double-feature, all combopacks), still several days prior to official release date.

From Kino Lorber i've got SpaceCamp, Night Angel, Stone Cold Dead, Rolling Vengeance, and of course Rawhead Rex.

A Quiet Place In The Country (1968) and Penelope Spheeris' Dudes (1987) from Shout! Factory.

And on dvd there's Moonshine County Express (1977) and Deadly Dreams (1988), both from the Code Red label.

Johnny I'm yet to check out the No Retreat No Surrender release and the last time I actually watched it was back upon it's original VHS/Beta release so certainly looking forward to revisiting it,you've got some cool pick ups there yourself let us know when you get chance what Stone Cold Dead is like as I've been curious about that one as it's got the great Richard Crenna in it!

From the others that you grabbed I have watched Space Camp before which was fun and Rolling Vengeance is a blast,also I have seen Deadly Dreams which is not entirely successful but the plot is pretty trippy and overall I'd say it's a decent watch!

The Devil's Honey looks cool!

Crash, it seemed like my Dad would watch anything with Peter Coyote. He definitely was an admirer.

Today I picked up T.J. Hooker Seasons 1 & 2, Tour of Duty- the complete series, and a Kenny Rogers Christmas special which also includes a Liberace Christmas special and two other old timey Christmas shows (I don't have the DVD in front of me at the moment, and I can't remember what they were). We are watching T.J. Hooker right now. I never saw an episode of this when it first aired. The Pilot isn't bad, but Adrian Zmed is definitely cheesey.

I don't remember that song youngwarrior, but I do remember some of the movie. Tawney Kitaen played Tom Hanks' girlfriend.

I've heard such good things about that series. Definitely want to jump in to that one someday.

It's a shame they took it away from Netflix, gordongecko. It was one of their most watched shows. The DVD set was $35 at Walmart.

Picked up two more 80s titles from the Kino Lorber catalogue :

 -  -

J. Lee Thompson's The Ambassador (1985) and Freeway (1988)

Also :

 -  -

De Lift (the Blue Underground edition is the one to get), and Scream Factory's second Paul Naschy Collection,
which has one movie i'd never even heard of before : A Dragonfly For Each Corpse (1973) !

Love that tagline on the front-cover of De Lift : ,..Take the stairs !.. Take the stairs !.. For God's sake, TAKE THE STAIRS !!!' [Big Grin]

Fango Bollente (1975)

The Austrian blu-ray edition sold out within weeks, but luckily i still managed to get a hold of the dvd version
to keep my Camera Obscura collection complete, as this is #19 of their Italian Genre Cinema collection.

Between Night and Dawn: The Lost Films of George Romero. How lost are they when I've had legit DVD versions of all three for years? LOL Seriously, the extras in this package are very enticing. I may be in the smallest minority around, but I think that of these three films, The Crazies is one of Romero's best films. Sure, it's low-budget, the acting is somewhat variable, and that snare-drum military soundtrack wears out its welcome fast, but it's ambitious, intelligently written, wonderfully edited, and thought provoking. If you haven't seen it, check it out. It's an impressive film. Breck Eisner's remake from a few years back is very good too on a much grander budget, but there's something about Romero's primitivism that works better for me.

And speaking of good editing, Jack's Wife a/k/a Season of the Witch a/k/a Hungry Wives, while not a complete success, does have an amazing last 20 minutes or so of suspense, perfectly edited by Romero himself. The rest of the film is talky and dated, but when you get to the climax, you are in Romero's good, scary hands.

I'll only say that the third film, There's Always Vanilla, the film Romero directed immediately after Night of the Living Dead, while not terrible and pretty watchable despite its age, is easily his weakest film in a long career without a single bad film. RIP, George.

The original elements for There's Always Vanilla and Jack's Wife no longer exist, and therefore these films are considered lost.
They weren't talking about the availability of these titles, as indeed there was a Season Of The Witch / There's Always Vanilla
double-feature dvd released by Anchor Bay in 2005 (with video-quality waaaay below their usual high standards though).

As for There's always Vanilla.. I think it would make a very interesting double-feature with Tobe Hooper's Eggshells. [Smile]

I have the Anchor Bay double feature from 2005, and it wasn't top quality for Anchor Bay, but I was happy to have those two in any form. I first saw the Season of the Witch cut on VHS way back around 1983.

I thick that the early 1970s had some of the most interesting directors and films ever. Even when guys like Romero weren't on their A-game, the films are still better than 90% of the crap released today.
