    I'm going to go with 'They Live'. But 'Prince of Darkness' is a strong second.

    I voted for Prince of Darkness. They Live! is in 2nd.

    For Starman: SE i'm sure Columbia/TriStar will released it in 2005 with a new HD transfer (like Christine).

    I voted for Elvis. It was/is the best docudrama about the King, and was very well crafted by John Carpenter. The movie that started the Carpenter/Russell relationship. TCB ;)

    Its the best commentary track Carpenter has done, IMO. The transfer is decent, and there is also a (VERY) short featurette. :fire:

    They Live. The comm. exits on R2, so I don't think it would take as much to put one together. Although, I somehow doubt this will happen unless the rights get passed from Universal to AB, as was the case with Army of Darkness.

    What about Elvis? That would be a perfect chance for a Russell/Carpenter commentary and its not even on dvd yet! I already have 2 versions of They Live and Prince of Darkness man, I don't need another one.

    They Live, with Prince of Darkness a close second.

    I also vote for They Live. I finally saw Prince of Darkness this weekend and was kind of dissappointed.

    Since I'm region free, I voted for Escape From LA which is so underrated it's a crime. I want to see al of them get the hook up though.
    Check my old posts for info about even better French versions of They Live and Prince Of Darkness discs, although subtitles are forced on some players they have 5.1 soundtracks and more extras than the more common r2 SE's.
     
  14. I'd love to see a SS of They Live also Prince of Darkness .

    Well, since Christine just got a SE release and The Thing just got 16:9 enhancement, there are only two more John Carpenter films that I'm interested in seeing re-released on DVD.

    They Live already has a great 16:9 Widescreen transfer, but it needs to be re-released as a SE with the John Carpenter / Roddy Piper commentary track that's popped up in other regions + whatever other extras are available.

    Escape From L.A. needs a 16:9 transfer and a John Carpenter / Kurt Russell commentary track + whatever other extras are available.

    Someone is Watching Me. Yeah its a TV movie, but I believe it was the last film he made before hitting it big with Halloween, and if I am not mistaken, this and Elvis are the only ones on the list above to not have ever been on video in any form (if they were on VHS they have been outta print a long time)...plus it is the only movie of his that I have never seen!

    I found a way around the forced subtitles on my French TL and POD discs, dvdshrink! I just re-authored the discs, didn't include the extra shit or audio tracks and greased the subs. Now I got 5.1 and commentary for TL (all fit with no compression), and 5.1 on POD (would have to compress a few % to fit comm. but since I have the real disc I didn't need to). Ironicly I can swicth them to NTSC using NeroVision (alledgedly, I have no proof that this works yet), but only my hacked player can read the discs. :rolleyes: I've tryed them on a few friends un-hacked machines and it's either error or this disc can't be played. I was gonna do a second disc for TL with the doc. and other extras, but the French subs are burned into that even though a subtitle track shows up when analysing the disc. I turned it off but the subs were still there on pre-view so I canned the idea.

    You an I are in the same boat. I love LA and think it's VASTLY underrated. It's better then NY IMO. It's NY with all the flaws taken care of. I loved it and laughed my ass off the entire time.

    Besides I'll love to hear another Carpenter/Russell commentary! :banana:

    I have the R2 They Live! and POD DVD's also. I love hearing Piper's commentary. Simply awesome!

    VIVA John Carpenter!
