I say give it time. there is a massive amount of stuff that needs to get put on dvd because well, there is a massive list of movies out there. if the studios flooded us with titles it wouldn't be of any use since we wouldn't be able to afford them all. so I say let them release them little by little.

I've recently been on a 80's skin flick kick also. Movies which may never make it to DVD, I've picked up cheap on VHS on eBay. I'll probably convert them to SVCD's. Picked up in the last few weeks...

Need to add Hardbodies 1 & 2 to that list though.

How about Preppies, Night Patrol, Private Resort, and Hot Dog: The Movie for the skin list?

And what about all the great 80's exploitation flicks like Angel, Savage Streets, or any of the Charles Bronson films?

I recently saw Angel and Angel 2 in the bargain bin at HMV in Manhattan. They may have been VCD's. They were 4.99!

Just One Of The Guys is a perennial favorite in the requested titles category.

As long they release them right the first time I can wait. Don't like getting punished for buying them the first time only to have more complete version released later on.

Ahh, I love these threads! All excellent choices listed thus far.

My top choices would be Valley Girl and Last American Virgin.

oh, that's right...i need "License to Drive" as well as "Lucas". where are all the corey haim movies???? those were staples of the 80's.

but if they put his video diaries (me, myself, and i) onto dvd, it surely is a sign of the end of times.

I've got quite a few

I've had this list in the back of my mind for a while:

The Heavenly Kid
Two Of A Kind (John Travolta & Olivia Newton John)
The Experts (John Travolta)
Super Fuzz
One Crazy Summer (John Cusack)
Police Academy 4: Citizens On Patrol
Howard The Duck


I'm sure I could tack on a couple more if I put some thought into it.


Peace.
