Nice pick ups there, Young Warrior..

i recently got that same edition of The Gate too, as well as Vestron's C.H.U.D. II ; Bud The Chud (1989).
I know it's a pretty lousy film, but hey.. i'm a 80s horror completist, so i couldn't help picking it up ! [Big Grin]

I also upgraded my old region 1 dvd of Robert Altman's Images (1972) to the new, recently released Arrow blu-ray,
plus added two more Altman films from the Criterion Collection to my collection as well, The Player (1992) and Short Cuts (1993).

Never seen C.H.U.D. 2:Bud The Chud but would like to check it out just out of curiosity though I'm not expecting much from it and need to still update my Anchorbay DVD to the U.S Arrow Blu at some point of the original which is a great flick!

Picked up a few Blu's mostly horror with the Troll twin pack,The Slayer,The Thing which I already have on Blu Ray but I've doubled dipped as I want the best release of it which I believe this currently is, lastly the Aussie cult Sci-fi Dead End Drive In.

Some awesome movies amongst that lot Jakey V,I especially love Tuff Turf,Angel,Soul Man,Black Moon Rising and Fraternity Vacation.

Reform School Girls is enjoyable as well and though I have seen Night Patrol it was that long ago I couldn't give you an honest opinion on it!

The only one I've never seen is Girls Just Want To Have Fun so I'll think I will add that to my rental list to check out at some point!

It's been out for quite some time already, but i finally decided to pick this up before it goes out-of-print.

Arrow's box-set of all four original Female Prisoner Scorpion films from the early '70s starring the iconic Meiko Kaji.
It's an 8-disc set (all four movies are blu-ray + dvd combopacks) in a sturdy outer box that also includes
a hardcover book. (the box is actually quite similar to Arrow's Complete House Collection from last year)

I've never seen any of these, but each time i read a book on exploitation films, these titles keep popping up,
so i figured this box-set wouldn't be out of place in my own collection ! [Cool]

Picked up on Blu Ray the hilarious 1980 Gene Wilder Richard Pryor comedy Stir Crazy plus the Arrow Blu Ray release of Sho Kosugi's Pray For Death.

Also got myself a replacement boxed copy of Ms.Pacman on the Atari 2600 as my old copy had more or less bit the dust!

Ms. Pacman--excellent! Those Atari folks really knew how to design great games. I love playing the old-school stuff.

Several imports from the Uk :

A Pistol For Ringo / The Return Of Ringo (double feature blu-ray) and The Complete Sartana Collection (5-disc box-set).
I'm a sucker for spaghetti westerns, so when Arrow announced these titles some time ago, i didn't have to think twice
and pre-ordered right away.

Also upgraded Last House On The Left to the new 3-disc limited (and pretty much definitive) edition from Arrow,
Xtro to the new Second Sight blu-ray, and Midnight Cowboy (a movie i watch at least once every two or three years)
to the new Criterion edition.

The first date i ever had with a girl, i was in my early teens, and we went to see Young Einstein at the movie theater.

Well, actually i wanted to see A Nightmare On Elm Street 4, but the girl didn't agree with my initial choice.. so Young Einstein it was.

True story ! [Big Grin]

I picked up Bachelor Party a few days ago at a thrift store. It has a sticker on the side which appears to be from a video rental store. Darn it, I miss renting videos. But I do love streaming too. I'll be saving this for the winter time and try to make it an 80's movie weekend.

Bachelor Party is a blast to watch Pittsburghgirl!


Picked up on Blu Ray Porky's Revenge and Lamberto Bava's 1985 horror Demons plus on DVD The Strangers:Prey At Night which my wife and I did catch at a late show when it played at the theatres a little while back and had quite a fun time with it and also thanks to fellow rewinder Johnny Roarke who gave me the heads up about its release I grabbed The Final Cut UK DVD release of The Wild Life.

Picked up a few VHS two of which I have never seen before and have yet to be released to DVD /Blu Ray and that is Delta Heat with Anthony Edwards and Lance Henriksen plus Streetwise which is from the makers of 1984's Angel and stars C Thomas Howell.

Lastly on VHS I picked up a copy of the awesome 1986 Wes Craven horror Deadly Friend which I do already own on DVD but I do love to revisit some of my old faves on tape from time to time!


On Blu Ray (made on demand disc) I grabbed a copy of the 2018 horror Summer Of 84 which has received some really positive reviews!

I like all of those, even the goofy Zone Troopers. Tim Thomerson was perfectly cast. He's so underrated. To me, no movie with him in it could be all that bad.

Yeah I agree Crash I dig him in Zone Troopers plus the original Trancers movie and thought he was also great as one of the helicopter pilots in the awesome Ted Kotcheff flick Uncommon Valour.

Makes me think of another cast member from Valour actually Fred Ward who I think never turns in a dud performance and tends to make each feature that more enjoyable!
