    Alright! I've been secretly hoping that they would upgrade this title. I'm glad I held off on buying it. It's a favorite movie of mine...I even quoted it (sort of) in my yearbook quote section when I graduated in 2001.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    It would've been cool, though, if Paramount made a deal with Lions Gate' so they could include the "Flashdance"-inspired video "Ultraflash", which also featured scantily clad women interpreting 80s dance songs.

    I won't lie, I'm excited. Absolute guilty pleasure for me, I admit that I even own the soundtrack on remastered CD. That and Footloose were my fave soundtracks of the 80's

    It looks a little better than what i saw of the old disc, but I'm not sure if they used noise reduction on the video or what. It looks a little smoothed-over.

    The video featurettes are good, but the only thing that's sorely missing from this disc is a Lyne commentary. Not sure why he wouldn't have done one.

    Anyone else hate these awful disc hubs? The movie disc was free-floating in the case when I got it. No damage though.
