I own and enjoy the PETS DVD, but that is about the worst print I have ever seen used for a pressed DVD. Sometimes Bill will throw on a tape transfer as an extra when the film element is in such shit condition, which I think is very reasonable square-up gesture.

Currently $13.49 at Amazon -- about $7 cheaper than what I paid for it!

How have I never seen this flick before?!?! I bought the BD on a total blind buy, and this is easily one of the greatest purchases I have made this year. This movie has everything! Ninjas, Bikers, Biker Ninjas, Biker Ninjas that deal cocaine!, a cheesy 80’s band (Dragon Sound BBHAHAhAHAhhahhah) consisting of Taekwondo black bets, gore, and quite possibly the best 80’s soundtracks I have heard since Rocktober Blood, all in amazing HD! My brain was on the verge of melting through my nostrils.

Absolutely fantastic stuff. Oh man, I needed this movie so bad…so, so, soooo bad. Thank you movie Gods!

“Friends through eternity, loyalty, honesty. We'll stay together through thick or thin!” HAHAHAhahahahahahaha…!

I was afraid you were over selling this one. Nope, you are dead on. I love the soundtrack, cocaine dealing biker ninjas and seeing John Oates do taekwondo. I'm headed to the Alamo Drafthouse to see Trailer Wars tonight. I wish I would have seen MIAMI CONNECTION in the theater.

Has anyone ever ordered directly from Drafthouse? I pre-ordered the "Oh My God Edition" as well as Trailer Wars "World War IX Edition" and I have not received either. Not to mention there was a debacle with signed posters being destroyed and I will not be receiving one, instead getting an unsigned poster and a supposed refund for shipping...I really wanted that signed poster

I have emailed them but wanted to see if anyone on the site has had problems in the past.

I pre-ordered the "Oh My God Edition" with signed poster way back in October from their website, and received the whole package on Dec. 24th. Had no problems with shipping to Canada, all was well packaged and shipped out on time.

Man, this movie just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...like the first time you feel up a chick...just this real comfortable sensation. Its such a positive ego boosting film...aside from the cocaine and the stabbings and the cutting off limbs, fighting, bullying, this movie just puts you in a good mood.

Boss ridin' ya at work? Watch Miami Connection. Having trouble paying bills on time? Watch Miami Connection. Significant other not putting out? Watch Miami Connection. Retards in Congress jerking off the American people? Watch Miami Connection. All your troubles will fade into obscurity.

Funny you ask that as I was wondering the same. Well they are. I PM'd them earlier on FB & got this reply

"We are currently out of stock on the 7" but more are being pressed and will be available in the near future. Keep an eye out!"

Then to get an email notification of when they do...

"Head over to any of our offers to sign up. You'd probably dig the Dragon sound mp3s, so sign up here! http://drafthousefilms.com/film/miami-connection"

Download the free 2-song Jam Pack & it will ask you for your email address.

Rad...they are pressing more? Badass!

Yeah, I downloaded the two songs from Drafthouse's website, so I should get the update as to when they get more in stock. I just hope the way those two MP3's sound is not how they sound on the 7"....it sounds like they just ripped it right from the film as you can hear the audience clapping in the background and the ending of "Friends" cuts off early and starts again at a random part of the song before it ends.

Anyone that has the 7" already...can you confirm the quality of it?

For some reason i was expecting this to be Toxic Avenger bad. In reality the movie was a freaking borefest on my end zzzzZz. The trailer made the movie seem like epic cheese gold. I liked certain parts of the film but it felt like they were just making shit up as they went. Movies made these days are such shit we tend to give GOLD status to 80's movies. Unfortunately the only status I can give this film is GOLD diarrhea.

Because they actually were! They didn't even have a script, just an outline of events. Half the movie is fighting, the other half is total ad libbing. That's where the beauty lies.

C'mon Dobbs...have a little fun. You're starting to sound like DVDfanatic-9...hating every movie ever made.
