.........is there one on any region?

There are alot of lost (dont know if you would call them classics........but I love them anyway)movies that are'nt on DVD.....and are very hard to track down on laser.

Quick Change,
Moving,
License to Drive,
Jumpin Jack Flash,
...........and the aforementioned Monster Squad.

Just noticed that Toy Soliders is coming out on R1 in October, which is what promted my post.

No, it's not available on any region.

I have the Japanese widescreen laserdisc, which is decent, but not great. I did a review at http://www.horrordvd...a-m/msquad-jld/

Definite purchase for me. AFter all it answers the age old question that Wolfman does indeed have nards.

This isn't Columbia's movie. They were simply the distributor back in the 80's. I believe the rights are owned by Artisan or Paramount. There seems to be some confusion over who actually has the rights. One thing is for certain: it's not Columbia's movie to release onto DVD.

The Japanese laserdisc has subtitles, all of which are in the black bars. Actually, the 2.35:1 frame was shifted vertically so that there would be a larger black bar on the bottom, effictively allowing all subtitles to stay in the black bar.

well Dave thanks for the info...............and I am sure you are with me when I say "whoever owns the rights......better get a move on and bring it out"


I am sure that this would be a decent seller as it seems to have a big cult following.

But does anybody know when other titles that I mentioned are going to be released?

I would scarf up (SCARF I say!) a DVD of this in a heartbeat. I believe I saw this once in the theatre, but since then only on P&S laserdisc and (forgive me...) VHS.

...the 2.35:1 frame...


Was this really 2.35:1? Wow...

I did a comparison between the 2.35:1 widescreen ld and the 1.33:1 p&s ld. The proof is in the pudding.

How come there isn't a petition for this flick?? They NEED to release this flick, so younger audiences KNOW that there is only ONE way to kill a werewolf :b

I'd love Monster Squad on dvd! Has some of the best recreations of the classic monsters ever!

Declan,
you mentioned that Toy Soldiers is coming out here, is this by chance the action flick with Sean Astin and Will Weaton? If so, i'm very excited, i've been waiting for that one.

I don't own a laserdisc player so I have to get by with my P&S old-school worn-out VHS tape. Someday... (dream)...
