Why the heck is it not comin' out HERE yet?!?!?! Music rights issues ala Buffy??? Doubt it since all the composers on the soundtrack have been DEAD for centuries!!!!!

    Dave, while I was at Best Buy today I noticed that Rollerball was priced at $9.99 (normal price, not sale price). Maybe that price reduction means that a re-issue is on the way.

    Spaceballs has the same price point and I've read than an SE of that title is on the way. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
