    Yes but only with a 2.0 channel soundtrack which i understand fixes the issue but some reviews suggest is weaker overall, Lynch doesn't use the rear channels anyway and the cinema release was 1990 and i don't think it had a 70mm blowup, i doubt it was originally 5.1 in any form, i'm happy with the one i have but i'd probably be happy with the fixed version and it's sound mix.

    The first release which i have isn't region locked, it'll play worldwide just fine.

    P.S. I'm happy to be corrected on the above assumption that the film never had a 70mm blowup and magnetic 6 channel track.

    I didn't know about the Lynch set. That's definitely looks like the better option, especially if you're interested in the other films in the set (which I am).

    Good news about the extras on the Twilight Time release then."The Lime Green" DVD set includes deleted scenes for WaH, perhaps we'll see them on Blu-ray one day.

    Jari, TT's market is the USA and so the statement is accurate to their market. It is the first US blu release here.

    It is accepted practice for this kind of statement...anyone purchasing the Blu-rays of HATARI and EL DORADO from WB / Paramount in the US this week will see stickers on the outside packaging announcing "On Blu-ray for the first time" -- but of course both are available already overseas.

    Wow, that was quick. All the King's Men has already sold out. You never know what is going to be popular. I'll bet it's being a Best Picture winner has something to do with it.

    It was gone for most of yesterday Allen. Some thought that meant it had sold out.

    Oh, thanks I didn't realize that. I placed a pre order for Mr. Hobbs last night and saw it still listed for sale. As a guy from Louisiana, it does deserve to sell out.

    Watched Used Cars this morning.

    For the most part, it looks pretty darn good.

    A few things I noticed....

    There's a really odd blurred shot towards the beginning of the film
    where we first see Luke Fuchs (Jack Warden).

    There's a noticeable movie flub after the "these prices are too fucking high"
    commercial: Roy Fuchs (Jack Warden) attacks Jeff in white car by trying to
    run over him. Watch as he attempts to gets out of vehicle twice (once as a
    stunt double)

    As many times I have seen Used Cars, I never noticed the cameo of
    Dick Miller (who is in bed with woman), who went on to appear in many
    Joe Dante films.

    Wonder if this was one of the first mainstream films to feature footage of
    a United States President? Not talking documentary, mind you. I remember
    when Contact was released, there was a lot of commotion about the footage
    of Bill Clinton that was used.

    In all, it was great seeing this film again. I think its success was mostly
    due to its continuous airing on cable television in the 1980s when that was
    a new medium. All these years later, it hasn't lost one lick of its entertainment value.

    This is a worthy Twilight Time purchase.

    Used Cars failed miserably at the box office. When I viewed it back in 1980, I remember seeing it in a rundown downtown theater so it didn't play at the modern movie theater complex located by the mall. Needless to say, my viewing audience included me and a few rats looking for food.

    I ordered my disc the other day along with All the Kings Men and Conrack.

    I saw this many times on VHS when I was younger. Still love it today and it's just got that great Zemeckis/Gale formula of dark humor and perfect story construction. Love it.
