I don't think studios care all that much about 20 year old movies unless interest in the original might be rekindled in the event of an upcoming sequel or remake. Like, I just watched Surviving The Game on yt last night too. But yay because my VHS is virtually unwatchable.
I just fast forwarded to my favorite scene.. either I'm drunk or it's sped up by kinda a lot. The fight scene plays out like a Godfrey Ho film, which is kinda silly. But then again, maybe I am drunk.
My cousin wrote and directed a movie that came out a few years ago called Branded which was criticized as being the same movie but with the sacrifice of a red cow in lieu of sunglasses or something and more from an advertisers' perspective than an average Roddy Piper..

The second half of the movie never matches the first, but it's still a great watch.
It's personally my 3rd favorite John Carpenter film. Like Kill Bill I consider Escape from NY and LA one movie, so that's #1, and Darkstar is #2. I know a lot of people didn't like LA, but those people are dumb.
I do have to say that I'm not a fan of Carpenter's music in this one. It sounds like something from a cop show that's also sort of a comedy, like The Commish or something.
Yeah. I always thought it'd make a cool series but since it was the late 80s I could see disasterous results.
IZ, Dark Star is fantastic.
This one was made after Carpenter's music went to digital synths (that started in Prince of Darkness I believe) so it's definitely a different sound than before, and not always for the better, but I still enjoy it.
I'll always have a real soft spot for The Thing and ESPECIALLY Big Trouble, just because they were the first ones I saw.
When I was in grade school, before my family could afford a VCR, I actually made an audio tape of Big Trouble in Little China by putting a boom box next to the TV, and I used to listen to that like an audio book or something.

Theres a bunch of movies and websites dedicated to showing how this movie accurately predicted our current drone-infested corporate police state NSA Bush etc etc
just for starters

I love having a 'download from youtube' button.
? I haven't checked in years but all I remember was this YT-AVI converter that was kinda glitchy and definitely wouldn't handle an hour+ of content, kinda like YT-mp3 can't handle whole albums or really anything over 7 minutes..

You don't have to bother to convert if you can play mp4 on your system. Firefox com, add-ons, VideoDownloadHelper.

This movie made Hulk Hogan so jealous that he convinced Vince McMahon to fund his own vanity project: No Holds Barred.
Also, the reason Roddy Piper never won the WWF title belt is because he refused to do a 'job' for Hogan, i.e. lose cleanly and make him look good. Hogan didn't trust him because he was one of the few wrestlers who wouldn't take his shit.
