We all are, of course. But there is a rather large number of no-shows when it comes to DVD's that deal with this subject matter, considering what has been produced during the past 25 years, leading me to believe the studios are intimidated by such films. Possibly they would rather remain politically correct by not issuing them to a paranoid public. Yes, we have ON THE BEACH 1959), Stanley Kramer's heddy-at-the-time but now-fairly-tame-and-slick-and-soapy epic. And we'll be getting MIRACLE MILE soon, which is a bizarre movie but anyone's standards and can hardly be called realistic. And, to be fair, two of the most convincing and horrifying nuclear blasts ever put on film are indeed available on DVD - DREAMSCAPE and TERMINATOR 2 (plus the explosions in INDEPENDENCE DAY, if you want to count them). But none of these films is really about nuclear war. Where, then, are the following: TESTAMENT: A movie made for tv but released to theaters... Haunting and powerful, but a Paramount no-show. THE DAY AFTER: ABC Circle film made for TV, once announced for DVD release by Anchor Bay, now dropped from schedule. THREADS: The British tv counterpart of DAY AFTER. Released to DVD in Region 2 only. SPECIAL BULLETIN: Television movie about nuclear terrorism. Fine (and scary) Ed Zwick film, still no DVD. Interesting how TV has far more balls than movie studios when it comes to making movies about this topic... Also, there is THE BEDFORD INCIDENT, which falls into the "not really about nuclear war" category. I think it's time to trot these films out, don't you? They were all made as "cautionary" films and are even more timely now than when originally produced.
