LOL...dude you have issues....get upset much over Blu-rays. So just because I think it looks good I'm wrong? Go cry to someone else about it. Talk about taking it to the extreme. Psycho fits you well.

Night of the Comet is an amazing post-apocalyptic film, with a nice amount of humor & '80's nostalgia - including a nice soundtrack...notably Cyndi Lauper's Girls just want to have fun played over a key scene - LOL. On the surface, the film seemed to be a cheap sci-fi B movie - however, the effects budget must have been big because it was a lot of work to make a large city seem deserted; also the zombie/mutant effects were great - and, the scene with the red sky was incredible as well.

It's also worth noting that two of the film's stars (Robert Beltran & to a lesser extent Mary Woronov) also starred in another early '80's black comedy, Eating Raoul.

I'm happy with the Scream Factory release, myself.

These Arrow vs. Scream Factory discussions always make me think about the Star-Bellied Sneetches from the Dr. Suess story. There's probably always going to be a bigger and better release of a film in my collection that pops up somewhere on the globe, but if the one that I have is presentable in high definition, then I'll stay with it.

This kind of reaction is EXACTLY WHY Shout gets all the criticism they deserve. We should demand great Blu-rays not poor discs with shitty cover art that resembles Iron Maiden covers.

Shout is a great company. Arrow seems to be their Criterion competition by way of supplementaries and especially transfers. Arrow is very high quality care. But Shout/Scream are no slouches. And the point is to enjoy the movie. You may have to perform the transfer yourself if you want the quality you seek. Then again, I can still watch betas blown through a projector and get off. For now we take what we can get and enjoy or we turn the cheek, put our wallet back into our pockets and walk away quietly.

Shout/Scream, like Arrow, are very good about having the original artwork on the sleeve reverse so..just flip it on over and "Up the irons!"

Again, what looks "nice to you" doesn't mean it's good, or correct. It just means you are complacent with mediocre blu-rays. It's funny, because the Arrow looks better, and I personally would rather have what looks better.
Then get the Arrow and shut up. How's that work for ya?

I like this movie so much that I'm double dipping and getting the Arrow version for the missing extras.

Shout is also very good for people who want cult films on a budget. I'm glad there are usually better versions of these films elsewhere for the connoisseurs, but affordable versions for people on a budget is something I personally respect.

What is wrong with his post? Seemed he has very good philosophy as to why he's not a nitpicker, and that he understands the strengths of both companies! What you said doesn't respond to a single thing that he said, it's just a drive-by thread-crapping.

My opinion on all this is that the movie is awesome and that in this particular case the Arrow is clearly a bit better but that very, very few people are going to have their experience ruined by the Scream version. I have the Arrow because I picked it up in a sale for less than the Scream was going for at the time, and had heard it was slightly better, but I'm not convinced I'd have noticed any difference. I did care about the one additional extra though

There are definitely Arrows that look a good bit better, for those without region-locks. Lifeforce is the one that really jumps out in my mind, it's a sizeable upgrade from the Shout release with the bonus of a new documentary. In the vast majority of cases though I would guess most people aren't nit-picky enough to notice much of a difference. I bet most people also don't have large, calibrated televisions they sit closely too either.

Anyway, I got Night of the Comet from Shout in the sale because f' it.

You accidentally copied my post to your post, which, other than the accidental copying of my post, is 100% correct about being ignorant! LOL
