I decided to subscribe to the Arrow Video channel via iTunes. The first month is free and $4.99 a month thereafter.

Hitcher was there, just didn't pick up in first shot, but you got the Re-Animator switch.

So glad this Arrow thread was spun off from the other one. There just weren't enough pix of OldBoy's movie collection in the other one.

Mod....please change title of this thread: "Official OldBoy's Journey Into & Out Of The Closet (Includes Pix!)"

I think your definition of "offensive" is wildly different than most people.

Well, it came out 36 years ago. I assume it was before your time. It's extremely dated by today's standards.

It's a nostalgia thing. If you didn't see it as a kid, you might not get much out of it now. The movie is most notable for being one of the first films to extensively use CGI, the quality of which is about what you'd expect for 1984.

I agree. My son and I watched it not too long ago and it was just eh. Great if you were a kid from the 80's and grew up when it came out. I was one of those kids but I never really cared for it that much even back then.

Just pre-ordered that first edition of Last Starfighter. I've always had a soft spot for that flick.

DEATH BLOSSOM!!!


Arrow does nice jobs with their releases.

Arrow just announced that because of a printing error that no 4K version of "Pitch Black" will have a slipcase.

Bumped the old thread because I was posting Blue Underground (review) information in response to a Blue Underground question.

I'm well aware that the thread used to house Arrow as well. Good to see everyone getting what they wanted, to have a dedicated Arrow Thread again.
