Default 'Roadracers' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed Robert Rodriguez's second full-length feature, the made-for-TV movie 'Roadracers.' He says this is a loving homage to low-budget B-movies about rebellious teens and their hot-rods. This Blu-ray comes with a surprisingly good audio and video presentation but a below average collection of supplements. Worth a look.

Way back in 2005 Rodriguez announced that he'd approved a new color-corrected 1.78:1 widescreen HD master (and recorded a commentary and shot a film school featurette) for a special edition DVD. It was supposed to be released that year via Miramax/Disney. It never was.

This Echo Bridge release is--I'm assuming--the aborted SE for seven years ago, just finally done up for blu-ray and DVD.

Finally watched Roadracers and have to say this is the best I've ever seen Davie Arquette. Would of liked William Sadler more crazy, and young Salma Hayek..very nice. Pretty good movie overall.
