    Anyone remember this movie? Its a typical 80s movie, but had some great music and CG sequences...

    Do you think it will ever be released on DVD?? What studio owns the rights to this movie?

    I have the soundtrack on vinyl [​IMG]
    A guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless. I've been keeping my eyes open for news about it, but haven't heard a peep.

    I have the soundtrack on CD! I think it's pretty hard to find now.

    I really liked this one and would buy it on street date if it every came out (in it's OAR, of course).

    Ahhh, the memories.
    Love the soundtrack. Haven't seen the movie for ages.
    I have a feeling it will fall apart when viewed almost 18 years later. If I recall correctly there was a sizeable amount of 80's cheese to it. (Sometimes that's a good thing, though [​IMG])
    The title track by Giorgio Moroder was a minor hit at the time, wasn't it?

    Bud Cort is generally better known as "Harold" from Harold and Maude.

    Thanks; I forgot to mention that. I didn't discover that film, though, until after the time of the story I told above. [​IMG]

    Um, guys...bad news about "Electric Dreams".
    It was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1984.
    Ted Turner bought MGM in 1986, selling off United Artists and several other parts of the company, but keeping all Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer titles up to 1986.
    Time-Warner buys Turner Entertainment Co. in 1995.
    Guess who's got the hold on "Electric Dreams"?
    Yep, our good buddies at Warner Home Video. Be prepared to wait and wait and wait...
    Thank you to www.turnerclassicmovies.com and said site's search engine for the information.
    Sincerely,
    John "Sucks...doesn't it?" Kilduff

    I just hope WB doesn't release this in their usual "Oh this is a crappy movie, let's just release it in Pan & Scan for $9.99!" type releases.
    I'll buy it in widescreen. I also love this movie. [​IMG]

    I saw this on cable last month and for those of you who have reservations...the movie definatly does not stand the test of time...the soundtrack is cool and you cannot beat Georgio Moroder

    Steve Baron did a commentary recently for Mike Bassett: England Manager on R2. So they should at least role out the special features on this. A few music videos, making of and of cause a commentary by Steve Barron, Lenny von Dohlen & Virginia Madsen.[​IMG]

    Yes, Culture Club did "Love is Love" (there was also a single and video for this) and a song called "The Dream" or something like that.

    My vinyl is a US release, I'm pretty sure.
