If you like the movie, you'll love it on Blu-ray
on February 26, 2015
As others have already noted, the Millcreek Blu-ray is a bare bones release; all you get is the movie. But it looks fantastic in HD, so if you're a fan of the movie, you should pick it up (and at an unbeatable price as of this writing). As for the movie, I watched it many times on HBO back in the mid-80's. Yeah, it borrows heavily from other, better movies. But I still think it's a lot of fun, with fantastic effects. The outdoor scenery is often breathtaking on Blu-ray. And James Horner's score is among the best for any fantasy/sci-fi film (even though it borrows from Horner's own Star Trek II score).
