    I'm going to see Scarface tomorrow!

    I can't wait to see Tony Montana face down in a pile of cocaine on the big screen!

    Is this a local thing or a nationwide release?

    I'm not sure. I don't think it's a local thing. It may be a limited cities release like a New York, Boston, LA, Chicago type of thing.

    Select cities got a new print of Scarface today for one week only in anticipation of the new DVD. I'll be seeing it in Philadelphia on Sunday.

    The ad says that it's "Presented with fully restored picture and digital sound."

    This bodes well that the new DVD will be an improvement over the previous one.

    Boy, that showing was fun. We got a nice clean print, and a VERY enthusiastic audience. They booed when he got shot in the end, they cheered when the credits came up, they cheered when he got in that whole "Fuck the Diaz brothers..." tirade, and a LOT of other scenes. It was a lot more fun then a showing of a new movie.

    I tried to go see it last night and both shows were sold out. Have to try and catch it sometime this week.

    So I saw Mambo Italiano instead. Helluva better movie. [​IMG]

    Good crowd today in Philly. I couldn't believe that some people brought kids to this thing, but even they were quiet during it (probably in shock [​IMG] ). The print looked great, and it was in a nice big theater, that almost sold out.

    This is my favorite movie of all time and I am so bummed that I can't find it playing here in Colorado Springs. I was so young when I saw it at the theater and want to watch it as an adult at the theater. I guess I will just have to wait until next Tuesday to watch it at home.

    I just saw it last night and it was amazing. I was really suprised at how clean the picture looked and how awesome the sound was. Hopefully this will be an indication of how good the DVD release is going to turn out.

    I remember this being touted as the big Christmas movie of 1983 - when I was 12. (Boy do I feel old...) It came out the same day as Sudden Impact and Christine. Let there be peace on Earth, indeed. [​IMG] I'm planning to see this in a few weeks when it comes around here. I'm not particularly squeamish, but how does it compare to Pulp Fiction in terms of the violence and the swears? Equal or worse?

    It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I'd have to say it's on par with Pulp Fiction regarding violence and language, although there is one scene involving a chainsaw that is definitely not for the squeamish.

    I saw it today and WOW!

    I enjoyed the hell out of it. Pacino was fantastic. I was somewhat squeamish about seeing it because of what I've heard, but as it turns out the famed chainsaw scene wasn't even as bad as the torture scenes on 24 last season. I thought that was supposed to be part of the finale, but I guess I was mistaken. The finale was a knockout anyway. Too bad it took me so long to see it, but I was only 12 when it came out, and I never had any desire to see it anyway. Serves me right. I think I enjoyed it even more than Pulp Fiction.
