I watched my blu-ray of this earlier in the year and it just didn't hold up to my memories. This isn't a title I would buy again.

for some reason that poster art works especially well on the steelbook cover. its very visually pleasing. i like the movie, but not enough to upgrade my 2-disc dvd. cool, though...

Hmm. I may need to rewatch this and see if it deserves an upgrade. Or if there a new extras, maybe anyway.

From Arrow's Facebook!:

"
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA ARROW VIDEO BLU-RAY STEELBOOK


Following Escape from New York and The Thing, John Carpenter and Kurt Russell re-unite for this mystical, action, adventure, comedy, kung-fu, monster, ghost story!

Russell plays Jack Burton, a reasonable guy who is about to experience some unreasonable things in San Francisco’s Chinatown. As his friend’s fiancée is kidnapped Jack becomes embroiled in a centuries-old battle between good and evil. At the root of it all is Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who rules an empire of evil spirits. Jack goes to the rescue dodging demons, goblins and the unstoppable Three Storms as he battles through Lo Pan’s dark domain.

One of Carpenters most enjoyable and best loved films, Big Trouble in Little China brilliantly juggles delirious set-pieces, comedy and kung-fu action with a razor sharp script of corking one-liners, as Jack would say “It’s all in the reflexes”.

Special Features:
- Limited Edition SteelBook™ packaging
- High Definition presentation of the film from a digital transfer prepared by Twentieth Century Fox
- Optional 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and uncompressed Stereo 2.0 Audio

- Audio Commentary with director John Carpenter and star Kurt Russell
- Return to Little China – A brand new interview with John Carpenter
- Being Jack Burton – A brand new interview with Kurt Russell
- Carpenter and I – A brand new interview with cinematographer Dean Cundey
- A new interview with producer Larry Franco
- Interview with visual effects producer Richard Edlund
- Vintage Making-of featurette featuring cast and crew
- Extended Ending
- Deleted Scenes
- Music Video
- Gallery of behind-the-scenes images
- 3 original trailers
- TV Spots
- Booklet featuring new writing on the film by John Kenneth Muir, author of The Films of John Carpenter, a re-print of an article on the effects of the film from American Cinematographer, illustrated with archive stills and posters"

I guess nobody does real documentaries anymore - everything is interviews. Talking heads, very little behind-the-scenes footage. Remember those?

I understand you point, but you also have to admit that a good interview can also be of great information.

And movie documentaries are nothing but a collection of interviews sometimes unified by a narrator.

You would first have to have behind-the-scenes footage before you can edit it into a documentary. Very few films (in the pre-DVD era) have any such footage (especially at low budgets) and when they do it's only a few minutes from one or two days out of the whole entire shoot.

In the Mouth of Madness is now my least-favorite Carpenter film. Blind-bought this a couple of weeks ago and didn't think much of it. Maybe I'm biased because of my general dislike of most 90's films, but this just felt like a generic studio horror flick. I didn't see any trademark Carpenter flourishes in it either.
