Films at Home creator, Jeff interviews Oscar Becher, Archivist and Vault Manager for VS. It's an interesting hour.

Showgirls in 4k is the pre-order for the Halfway to Black Friday sale. 🤣

Ordered Showgirls. I still have that Ultimate DVD set. It still holds my record for best overall release package.

I don't know why I got semi-obsessed with this movie.

No, there is plenty of better T & A on this thing called the internet. Something called Google.

Re: The Official Vinegar Syndrome Thread

Just noticed the 'Welcome To VS' bundles. Are those a new addition to the site? Nothing in them I don't already have (aside from a couple of titles I don't really want), but might be of interest to newcomers. I'm wondering if it's just a way of clearing out low-sellers? I'm not sure the pricing would beat the usual 50% off sales, though.

Those collections have been on the website for a while now. They include movies I already have but it'd nice to see Raw Force on that link as it's a title that I think everyone recommends to people who are new to collecting Vinegar Syndrome movies.

It's definitely near the top of my list.

The gay guy (no idea what his name is) that does one of the commentaries is probably one of the funniest and most enjoyable commentaries I have ever heard. After watching it once with that commentary, I not only viewed the movie completely differently, but I never wanted to watch it again without that commentary playing. One of the very, very few commentaries that did that for me.

RAW FORCE is definitely a gem. In fact, in the set with that included, all five are a lot of fun. Just watched DEATH PROMISE a couple of months ago and it's one of the more consistently (if unintentionally) amusing "martial arts buddies make a movie" movies I've seen (and I have a bunch!).

That's David Schmader, who has hosted "annotated screenings" of Showgirls as a sort of piece of performance art since 1999.

I might also recommend the book 'It Doesn't Suck: Showgirls' by Adam Nayman, which actually mounts a sincere (non-ironic) defense of the film.

I watched Showgirls last night with that Commentary and it's a lot of fun. I'm sure it'll get carried over to this new release. Also went ahead and placed my pre-order.

Ordered Show Girls. I watched the first half of Sidekicks this morning. Yet another title that looks far better than Id have ever expected.

I wonder if Showgirls will include the You Dont Nomi documentary. Seems like the perfect release for that.

I caved and ordered Showgirls last night. The ability to combine shipping with the halfway sale was an additional incentive.
