Default Why does this movie get overlooked soo much!!!

True Lies!!!!

Am I the only one that loves this movie to death? I can't be because everyone I talk to loves it. Why didn't it ever get a good DVD release and why isn't it getting a Blu ray released?

I swear this baffles me to no end.

While your add it throw in Armageddon.

Love that film, its just so watchable no matter how many times you've seen it.

Think it was the whole terrorism on US soil angle that stopped it getting a proper release back early in the decade, or so I've heard.

i love it except for the fact that the stunt double is SOOOOOO obvious in this movie. There should be a drinking game everytime the guy appears.

Every time a new format comes out there's the usual problem directors/producers and adaptation of the new format. Cameron, Lucas, Spielberg. Movies like Back to the Future, remembering way back when it hit VHS, the first movie to use Macrovision.

Re: True Lies, never saw a good release of Last Action Hero on dvd, now it's on Blu so I suspect True Lies is soon to follow.

I always liked it because this is Cameron sort of doing a quick smaller movie, and its still a BIG experience. I loved Avatar, but I wish he'd just do a quick film like this more often. Not everything needs to be a big decade in the making epic.

This is one of my top 5 favorite movies, but the non anamorphic DVD flat out sucks. Since there was only one release of this DVD (no double dipping?), this movie is BEGGING for an upgrade to Blu, so make it happen.

I asked Bill Hunt about this title over a year ago and he seemed to think once Avatar came out, more of the Cameron films would be available on BD. Then there is the school of thought that says this movie is TOO politically incorrect. I say screw that school, release the damn thing already.

It's sad when the TBS HD stretch is better than the DVD issue...

MOD NOTE: Thread Moved. Just because it's overlooked doesn't mean the rules of posting can be overlooked as well.
