Well, I've rencently been trying to get all of Tom Cruise's movies on DVD, and I've noticed that at lot of his earlier work is all barebones dvd's with a $10 price tag. Suppose films like Risky Business, Days of Thunder, Coctail, Far and Away, The Firm, Vanilla Sky, MI and more are coming in better editions?

Vanilla Sky is packed. I'd like to see SEs of the others though. VS does have a rumored SE, but's its been years.

Days of Thunder could use a good upgrade. I'd also like to see a sequel of such. Using today's Nextel Cup circuit of course.

Out of all those the only two that need work are Days of Thunder and Mission Impossible...both need anamorphic transfers....other than that I don't believe any of these should be revisted.

Risky Business needs a special edition. I won't rest easy until it happens.

I think "The Firm" could easily be a special collector's edition. It was a huge hit in 1993, grossing over $150 mil in the US and over $270 worldwide.

Nah, I disagree. The Firm needs more cowbell.

Of all the Cruise movies, I'd like to see an SE of this one the most. :up:

Vanilla Sky is neither bare bones nor an "early" Tom Cruise film. Discuss.

I am still waiting for a SE of Mission Impossible. I don't understand why Paramount won't release an anamorphic edition.

Ironic considering Cruise is probably one of those aliens.

Tom Cruise Celebrates "Risky Business" With Oprah - But The Film's Writer-Director Wasn't Invited

Fox News | Roger Friedman | May 5, 2008 07:29 AM

Today's Oprah, part two of a Tom Cruise special that started Friday, has been advertised as a 25th anniversary celebration of "Risky Business" and of Cruise's stardom. But no one told the seminal film's writer-director, reports Foxnews.com:

Paul Brickman, director and writer of "Risky Business," isn't involved in today's 25th anniversary celebration on "Oprah" with Tom Cruise. No once called him about it except me. Hmmm.


Brickman tells me there isn't even a DVD available of the movie for sale anymore. "We're working on a new one, but it's going slowly. I'm hoping Tom will come and do a commentary track with me soon." So far Brickman says most of the cast has been interviewed for a documentary that will be included. The target release date is later this year.

Before "Risky Business," Brickman had written a couple of films that had done well. He had a deal at Warner Bros. but no one wanted Risky Business there he said. So he took it to David Geffen's fledgling film company. Ironically, Geffen used Warner's as a distributor.

"I remember it was in very few theaters the first weekend. Warner's was concentrating on 'Cujo.' But then word of mouth spread, and there were long lines."

Cruise was 19 when Brickman hired him. It was pre-Scientology, pre-Mimi Rogers, pre-everything. "No one had heard of him. But it was pretty obvious from the beginning he was going to be a star. He'd done Taps. I told him his life was going to change radically."

Maybe the interview for that article was done before and Cruise has since laid down a track, or committed.

It also looks similar to the original DVD release of Risky Business.

Not that I'm a Tom Cruise nut, but I have two earlier releases with him. "Taps" released in 1981 and "Losin' It" in 1983. If the 1981 "Endless Love" was ever released on DVD, I might add it to my collection.

"Risky Business" is still my favorite.

I'm surprised there are people still interested in his movies, now that he's been exposed as a loon...

Taps is great, saw it in a class recently. Cruise is a complete psycho in that. "It's beautiful, man!"

Yes, but Risky Business was done in his pre-loon days. I'll pick up the SE.

Cruise just put up a new website at www.tomcruise.com and there is a letter from him as well as a nice montage of his movies. It seems Tom is trying to shed a lot less light on Scientology and a lot more light on his movies, which sounds like the right idea. From the letter, it seems Risky Business is on his mind, which leads me to believe he has, or will do a track for it.

It's called "Damage Control", such as what he tried to do with that phony interview and tour of his house with Oprah last week... -rolleyes-

I'd be in for a Grisham box set of The Firm, The Client, and A Time To Kill (mmmm....Ashley Judd :hump: )
