    I am specifically talking about:
    Weird Science
    The Breakfast Club
    Sixteen Candles
    I would like to see new transfers in 16:9 anamorphic, 5.1 sound. Special features of course would be great! Seeing these kids all grown up now reminiscing....see "The Goonies" DVD for reference.
    I'm not sure who owns the rights to these movies, but please take notice. I won't buy the current versions.
    Thank you,
    Eric

    Agreed. I tolerate my non-anamorphic mono copy of Breakfast Club because I love it so much, but I won't even touch the other two mentioned above until they are done right!

    Yep, as soon as these three are out with decent anamorphic transfers, I'll pick them up.

    And don't forget, in the case of Weird Science and Sixteen Candles, we need the original, theatrical release soundtracks. Both have music altered or "rescored" for home video release in all "home video versions."

    I would love Special Editions of these great movies.

    The 80's was a great time for movies.
