Isis, this an easily available movie, you can get it in the supermarket. But I think there is a special edition. Mr. Burton, I assume you own this? What is the breakdown of the special features available? Is it two discs.

Yep.. It's packed with deleted scenes, and the options menu is the coolest thing I've ever seen!!

Check out Play.com for the version I have!!

Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see, and besides... it's all in the reflexes."

A real 80s gem -- one of John Carpenters best. It also had a great soundtrack, composed by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth.


Jack Burton: Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president.

Did you guys know that Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee JKD fame) plays a bit part in this movie?

I haven't seen it yet....I just bought it through Ebay...they haven't sent it out yet. I only paid $3.00 for it, so even if I hate it...it was a cheap movie.

What is it rated?

My favourite 80's movie, neck to neck with THE BURBS! And most def Carpenters best movie in my opinion.

I watch it like every 3 months or so.... INDEEEEEED!!

I think it's a PG - certainly there's nothing particularly bad there that kids shouldn't watch. There's no real language in the movie, and I can't recall any explicit violence - the fight scenes are all pretty tame when compared to how they could have been.

My fathers side is from Donegal, my mothers side is from Northern Ireland. Not exactly sure of the county though... I'm also Scottish and English... [Big Grin]

Back to the subject of my favourite 80's flick. There is a great site with everything a BTILC fan needs. The site is Wingkong.net. It is a really good tribute to the film and has an hillarious Big Trouble In Little South Park skit, which is so funny!! Check it out guys...

Mr. Burton, you've proclaimed mad love for this film since the start but IYO is this your favorite Kurt Russell movie? Or do you like him in Escape from NY/LA or other ones better? I like him maybe in Miracle the best, but maybe that's the hockey fanatic in me.

I am a huge fan of Mr Kurt Russell. Last count I had 12 of his movies on DVD.
No doubt this is my favourite of his,as Jack Burton is just the most original and brilliant character of all time, but if I listed my favourites it would go like this:

1: BTILC
2: Escape From New York
3: The Thing
4: Tango and Cash
5: Backdraft
6: Used Cars
7: Death Proof
8: 3000 Miles To Graceland

Missed it when it came to the cinema didnt hear much about it afterwards, but you know when you find a movie and it just catches your eye and you say to hell with it, ill take a chance on this,never regreted renting it that night must have watched it 5 or 6 times with my brother and sister before we returned it.One of my favourite films ever a classic in my book everything was just right the actors the script the action perfect.
Well worth a look at if you have never seen it. [Smile]
