    I must admit, I am pretty psyched that "They Live" was just released on DVD. In the past, I was a wrestling fan, so I liked that Roddy Piper did the role, but I also thought the concept was pretty cool. So, are there any reviews out there on the new DVD???

    Yeah a Re-release from Universal next week 9/23. If you allready own the image dvd there is no need to rebuy as there are no extras to be seen. I am betting it is the same exact transfer and that would be ok with me since the prior release looked excellent. I just wish it had atleast the commentary track but i will live.

    The Region 2 is [​IMG] a killer, with commentary with Carpenter and Piper - and a short doc on the fight sequence (mainly). You won't miss the doc, but the commentary should be there on R1, too! BUT IT AIN'T [​IMG] Booooo! Glad I have my R2!

    Wanna bet that Universal will someday rerelease this as a collector's edition and include the missing commentary and documentary? I mean they are rereleasing other titles such as Carlito's Way...sounds reasonable that it could happen. I'll pass on this release and wait for them to do it right.

    For "They Live" fans who'd like to see this with a large group of people, The Long Haul in Berkeley will be having a screening tonight.
