Love this movie! Does anyone have it? I've heard the PQ is awesome for a 1979 movie.

I have the HD DVD. From what I understand both versions used the same encode, so the BD should be identical. Well worth $15. Looks and sounds great considering it's a low budget film from the late '70s.

Wow! One of my top three films of all time and I didn't even know it was released on Blu. Looks like my credit card will be lighter $15.00 in the next few seconds....

...I even quote PWEI at the top of my blog, which sampled from The Warriors quite heavily

Can you dig it?

Wink Spirit of the 70's!

I own this great movie. It a perfect movie to capture the spirit of the 1970's.

It takes place over the course of one long summer night in NYC.

Yes it was a low budget flick, but the story was pretty good and it does look great in Blu-ray. I didn't hesitate at all when this came out. For $15 you cannot go wrong.

PQ is excellent on both the HD DVD and Blu-ray, as has been already said. I just wish that it was the theatrical cut instead, not that the "Director's Cut" is terrible or anything, just that it sort of lessens the impact of a couple of scenes (Baseball Furies entrance for one) and diminishes the overall atmosphere of the movie for me.

This movie is one of my cult faves. I'm not sure if the brief comic book cut-scenes really work, but I didn't find them to be a real distraction either (perhaps I was mentally prepared for them by the Rockstar video game). I was extremely impressed by the transfer of this movie, but then again the only times I've seen it are on well-worn VHS or on TBS/TNT...

I put a few caps of this in the screenshot thread for the curious. Well worth $15 bucks in my opinion if you are a fan of the movie and definitely a must-rent if you've never seen it before.

So many great lines.

The Furies looked good but where a bunch of wimps.

I have held onto my original dvd release because I want that version and not the newer directors cut.

It's just not what I grew up with, watching late at night on TNT (Or maybe it was TBS).
