    I gladly signed. I know I speak for all fans of 1980's cult flicks when I say that a SE of this movie would be met with resounding peals of giddy joy.
    Translated: LOTS of people like these movies, and we want the goodies too!
    Or did Big Trouble in Little China prove a tough sell to the DVD crowd? [​IMG]

    I could understand bumping it once after a couple days, but to bump it after 7 hours seems like saying "my thread is more important, keep it at the top."

    Yes, by replying I myself am "bumping" it...but not just to "bump" it.

    I think these petitions are an utter waste of time and bandwidth. Most companies aren't even aware of them, and those that are pay zero attention to them. They either know or suspect that it is too easy to "stuff the ballot box" and that people often "trade" signatures. (You sign my Streets of Fire petition, I'll sign your Battlestar Galactica petition - even though I have no interst in BG.)

    Does anyone have a snail-mail address for Universal's DVD department, and even better a contact name? Actual letters, which people have to spend time composing, writing out or printing, stuffing in an envelope and which they have to pay to send show a much higher level of commitment than a two second "me too" signature on a virtual petition. They are therefore taken much more seriously by the powers that be in any company. I'd love to get an anamorphic widescreen SE of Streets of Fire, but I'd rather put my support behind an effort that has some chance of having an impact.

    Regards,

    Joe

    This is a good idea. If it works that's great. If not, no problem. I've heard that Universal are at least considering it. Why not? If they make money they are happy, right?

    Count me in! Diane Lane was the hottest thing on two legs (two lovely legs!) in this film. Fond memories of this one.

    Universal are bound to have seen this on the forum. They never miss a chance to make money - and there is money to be made on this title.

    Anyone have advice on how best to reach Universal with this petition?

    Thanks, please help.
