    I've been looking all over the place for "Better Off Dead", but can't find it anywhere. Is it on DVD at all?

      Number one on my list is It Came from Hollywood. Does anyone else know of this movie besides me? John Candy, Dan Akaroyd, Gilda Radner, Cheech and Chong... that movie is hilarious! I wish they would release it again!


      I was able to find this movie on VHS when the movie rental place by me went out of business. I was good, but a far cry from some of the classic MST3K episodes.

        Not a movie, but Twin Peaks season 2 needs to come out. I researched it a bit back and the chances that it will are fairly grim. Sucks though, because how the HELL do you release season one and not two?

          There are a few movies that have gone out of print that I would like to see on DVD:
          Black Roses
          The Decline of Western Civilization
          The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years
          From Beyond
          Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue
          My Pet Monster

            Monster Squad, Howard the Duck, and Rad.


            VERY good choices! I watched Howard the Duck in theaters more times than I should admit. I also rented Rad and Monster Squad more than a couple of times.

            The 2 I'd like to see are:
            1) The Eliminators - a sci-fi movie I loved as a kid and would like the opportunity to hate as an adult.
            2) Blade Runner (the original version) - I want to see the version with Harrison Ford's noir-like narration! This really needs a release.

              Eliminators was a cool movie. My cousins and I would rent that then act out all the roles. I thought of another one...BMX Bandits. Anybody else remember this gem? It's a little like Rad but Australian and Nicole Kidman is in it. I happened to find it on VHS at Best Buy about 10 years ago, never saw it there again.

                and add The Gate to that list..


                The Gate is on DVD (I have it) but it's on backorder everywhere. According to the release date it has been out for a couple years.

                I also think that Howard the Duck rocks! I'd love for it to be on DVD.

                And Firstborn should be added to the list

                      One of my favorite movies. It is out on DVD. Now I need to watch it again.
