Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Anybody remember this movie? I haven't seen it since I was a kid, but I remember enjoying it. I just thought I'd bring it up to see if there are any big Remo fans here Hey, if Buckaroo Banzai can become a huge cult favorite, why not this??? I remember it being kinda fun. Of course, I was 9 at the time.....

Remo Williams is perhaps one of the greatest films, period. I've been wondering about a DVD release of this for a while. Definitly something that needs to be considered.

How can anyone not like a hero who's named from a bedpan and his ancient kung fu master is addicted to soap operas? I love it!

Wow.......that's quite an appraisal! Going over all the generations of films....and including all genres, where would you place REMO WILLIAMS:THE ADVENTURE BEGINS at?

Thumbs up

It was called, Remo - Unarmed & Dangerous in the UK.
I remember watching it, and although it was quite funny - I don't really remember it as being one of the greatest films!! Maybe I missed the point - I saw it years ago though, so probably as a kid I'd rather have been watching Hammer movies or something.

I'll put it on the list of stuff-to-re-check-out!

"You move like a pregnant yak." Remo is one of my favorite childhood films. It would be nice to have a DVD release of it, for sentimental reasons.

Remo Williams: The Barebones and Full Screen Adventure begins July 15th on DVD.

No widescreen special edition for this great flick.

Chalk me up as a fan too. I have great memories of this flick from my childhood. Too bad it's only in full frame.

Are we talking full frame here, or pan and scan? If I'm not mistaken full frame would mean no loss of picture information, even though it might not be the intended aspect ratio. If it is "full frame" then I'd still get it. Pan and Scan is another story.....

What if it was shot open-matte (full frame), then matted for theatrical release? Or are you concerned because you have a 16x9 widescreen TV? I don't mind full frame transfers, as long as they're filmed open matte. It's pan & scan that makes me nauseous.
