View Full Version : Escape From NY: Which format?

OK, we all know the Escape from New York DVD doesn't have the extras of the LD. But which one LOOKS better? I like extras, but the movie is always the most important factor to me. And since Escape From NY isn't high on my all-time favorites, I don't know if I'd ever go through the extras anyway.

I would have bought the LD today (Ross' Exchange has a copy...bit pricey though: $25) but I decided to break one of my spark plug wires while cleaning up after an oil change, so my $$$ had to go there instead.

Well, I can only speak for the DVD, and although people have said the pic is good, I found it lacked resolution, and seemed a bit indistinct, unlike all the other John Carpenter DVDs I have (about 10, including the Image ones). It could just be my imagination though.

Oh no, mother! Blood!

DVD looks better but ya gotta own both! Commentary track is quite enjoyable.

The new DVD has a GREAT transfer. I have seen the LD and it has better features but the overall LD doesnt have as good a presentation. I sold the LD, and I regret it, I'm looking to pick up another copy just for the extras.
