You enjoy the DC for what?

Seems like nothing of value was added except for the drastic change of the fucking comic panels and the intro bs..ugh...

I have this on a custom Grindhouse Experience DVD with Halloween 6: The Producer's Cut, it's really a good extended version

The theatrical cut, if you have a Netflix subscription, is available for streaming in HD and I'm watching it right now while my girlfriend prepares dinner.

When I bought that so-called "Ultimate Director's Cut" back in the day, the first time we watched it I couldn't believe how stupid it had become with all the comic book crap added in, couldn't finish it, ended up selling it on Ebay. Found the theatrical version on DVD, I'm a happy camper now. If they ever release the original version on blu-ray, I might be tempted, but for now I'm happy with what I've got.

This was one of those movie that I kind of liked as a kid, but didn't really remember that well.

I picked up he BD last year, and read about the comic book additions. I have to admit, given Walter Hill's commentary about how he always saw it as a comic book movie and based on the Greek story, I really didn't have a problem with the updated version.

I imagine if I was a big fan of the theatrical cut I wouldn't like this new version, but for me, it's okay.

I remember seeing it in the theater back in the day, when there was worry that the gang angle would provoke violence in the theaters.
By the way, in his latest film "The Assignment" (available on Amazon prime) Walter Hill uses "comic book panels" as transition devices between scenes.

The original purple banner DVD actually looks quite good. I'm perfectly happy with it.

In the supplements on the recent Streets of Fire Blu-ray, Hill talks a lot about seeing that as a comic book story too. However, from the things he says, it kind of sounds like he's never actually read many comic books, but just has a vague idea in his head of what they used to be like when he was a kid.

I'm not going to link to anything but there is a seller on eBay who has a Blu-ray disc, obviously a bootleg, featuring the TC along with a ton of bonus features. Until there is an official release this one works very well for me.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm thinking, too. The panels used in "The Assignment" just sort of pop up, and they get your attention, but as a device they just sort of call attention to themselves. It seems as if it's a way of "excusing" some short-handed logic in the film, as if he's asking the audience to accept it as "Pulp" storytelling.

I imagine they're also a consequence of that movie's very low budget, as a cheap method of bridging scenes or story points he couldn't afford to film properly.

So about $50+ including shipping and it's not even in 4K? They can do better.

I’m hoping that by me purchasing this, the UHD will be released shortly thereafter.

I wouldn't be surprised if Paramount puts out a UHD with both cuts, considering all of their recent output.

I have the theatrical version on DVD, the Director's Cut SUCKED, sold it as soon as I was able to upgrade to the theatrical version. While I really like this movie, I don't think I would pay $50 for it. Maybe someday when the price is better.

As much as I want the Theatrical Cut on BD (or 4K), paying $50+ for it alone is a bit much.

$19.99 is the most I'll pay for blu-ray.
$29.99 is the most I'll pay for 4K.

I would pay $50 if Paramount releases Black Sunday 1977 UHD.
