Howard the Duck (I have a very nice DVD of this from a HDTV broadcast, as well as laserdisc)
Vibes (also DVD from HDTV broadcast)
Rad (have it on laserdisc, missed getting the HDTV broadcast of it a couple of years ago)
Space Raiders
The Keep (have a DVD from a UK tv broadcast but it's 4:3, the widescreen laserdisc is rare as chickens teeth and goes for a bomb when it appears on eBay)
Electric Dreams
Hamburger the motion picture
The Peanutbutter Solution
Frog Dreaming aka The Quest aka The Go-Kids


I thought Damnation Alley was already released on DVD but can't find it anywhere so it's probably not.

I'd like to see It Came from Hollywood reissued.

This thread is bringing back some serious memories. THE MIDNIGHT HOUR! I haven't thought about that in decades. I'd love to see that again.

I definitely need to add "The Night Before" to my list. I've never seen it, but judging by the trailer, it looks like an awesomely fun movie that I could watch over and over. I was very surprised (and disappointed) to learn that this was unavailable on R1 DVD.

also...

The Wild Life
Grandview, U.S.A

I haven't seen either of these, but am curious about both...

Got RAD and Modern Girls (though the later is a VHS rip in full frame, it still looks great). You can get "Wild Life" (which is also a VHS rip that needs a better edition) and "Modern Girls" from http://www.imlivinginthe80s.com , as well as a bunch of other 80s films. "Hardbodies" is a classic beach comedy. I'm surprised it has come out on DVD yet. The soundtrack songs are near impossible to find. I only have a few. The only available version of "Billie Jean" is the HDTV Rip, which is excellent. It can be bought here: http://www.raredvdclassics.com/thelegendofbilliejeandvd.html .
They also have some other 80s movies too. Hopefully "Electric Dreams" will come out on DVD soon. Amazon already has a page for it. Just put together an extended soundtrack in play order for that classic movie. It was missing 10 songs.

Phaota,

I too have posted these sites before. some of the stuff is 'really' good! Here's other websites that have "Electric Dreams" and more:

www.imlivinginthe80s.com - yes it's here...

www.raredvdclassics.com - Vibes (Nick wants this one) Electric Dreams, Billy Jean and others...

www.missedmovies.com - movies from 1940s - 1990s with 90 of them from the 80s...

Some of these are better than others, but all are at least VHS quality. Hey, it's better than nothing. Where else can you find "Student bodies", "The wild life", "Rad", "Modern girls", and one I looked for forever "Thunder Alley"? And many more...

Some good stuff people... [Smile]

Many of these titles can be purchased at ioffer.com. Of course they are bootlegs, but better than nothing.

I actually have The Midnight Hour on DVD. I had a used VHS version that I bought on Amazon.com several years ago. It wasn't long after that I saw it was available on DVD. I think I only paid 20 bucks for it. Haven't seen it in so long, gee I wonder what I will be doing today.....in the rain......

Fire wtih Fire, Legend of Billie Jean, Student Bodies, Hardbodies, and Hamburger the Movie all need releases in the worst way!!!!

The Final Countdown is a movie I've been looking for ages, especially that WW2 time warp.

Screwballs-With all the porky's worship, why is this not being converted to DVD?

The Joy of Sex- With some of the same actors/actresses appearing in it a year after Valley Girl, it's like a good hangover for those who want to keep some VG spirit mixed with shades of the abovementioned movie.

Nightof the Creeps, Wild Life and legend of billie Jean are just inexcusable non converts to DVD.
