1. Physical appearance - I was expecting a burnt store bought DVD-R with the lack of description on this thing. No, it is a nice cover, and a factory labeled disc. Pretty much on par with the obscure movies that end up in thew Walmart 5 dollar spot. Think of "Howard the Duck", no insert, but a nice case, cover, and the DVD is properly labeled, and unless you know the difference between a DVD and a DVD-R, you probably wouldn't even know it's a DVD-R.
2. Actual Disc - Their is no real menu. Just a generic representation of one. It gives you the option of watching with commentary, or without.
3. Actual film - Ok, so it isn't crystal clear HD amazing quality. But it is BY FAR the best i have ever seen. this is even better than the version that played on HDTV a while back. This movie had sadly ONE VHS release, and it hasn't aged well, if you own a copy you know what i am referring to. All VHS is not created equal, and BJ was an early VHS tape. I am flat blown away by how good it looks. The masters to this movie were lost years ago, which is why it never got an official release, the only reason. I would hypothesize that this was a way for Sony to make money, while answering probably a few thousand requests. The Movie quality compared to a properly Digitally remastered film is about 8 out of 10 (Proper remaster being 10).
4. Good Buy? Are you kidding me?! It's done, if you have wanted a decent copy of this and have been waiting for years your done. Buy it, done deal. I've had bootlegs, VHS, all the above. I am an avid movie fan. I was absolutely relieved to find this. I wanted to get my wife a good copy of this and had just about given up. By one while they have them, because i don't think this one will stay in print too long.
Other '80s films such as "Pretty in Pink", "The Breakfast Club" or "Ferris Bueller" have been overexposed and rerun to death on cable, and TLOBJ has been hiding away for years and never really achieved the cult status it deserved, so if you've forgotten this film, I recommend it as a fun time capsule. The script is well-paced, the characters are well-defined and the performances are excellent all-around.
A great story about justice and retribution in small-town Texas, though some of the plot points are a little far-fetched. Plus it's got a great theme song from Pat Benatar that also deserves to be better-remembered than it is.
