This will be mine! I have the other 3, John Carpenter/Kurt Russell releases ... for a commentary from them. Only movie of them that I've never seen.

Do people generally like this movie? I found it to be highly disappointing - although I honestly haven't watched it since it's theatrical release.

Also found this one underwhelming when I saw it theatrically, although I was a bit disappointed that it performed badly at the box-office because prior to its release I was hoping they might get a trilogy out of the character, at least. Still, it definitely has its moments, and I might be persuaded to get this (on sale?) in the long run . . .

I watched this growing up way before I saw Escape From New York. Maybe it's the nostalgia, but I still like this movie better than EFNY. Looking forward to this release!

If they get a new transfer I'm sold. I hated the movie when it came out, but after I've seen it a few times I've learned to look past its faults. It makes me laugh a lot, as it should, since it's a comedy this time around.

It's basically a remake of the first movie, so if you saw this one first, I can see why you might like it more.

White Zombie had a cool song in this.

That is all I remember
