and get this all new ULTIMATE EDITION of TRANCERS Supervised by Charles band himself
an All new High Definition transfer in Widescreen format, incredible picture quality
Definitely an improvement from the DVD release, the picture quality looks very clear and crisp on blu-ray
the old Stereo Audio track has been Digital remastered on this blu-ray
and a brand new 5.1 surround sound Audio track has been added to this blu-ray aswell
the new 5.1 Audio mix does sounds pretty Good but not amazing
actually the new HD picture quality looks amazing, better than the Audio mix
There is also all new special features for this blu-ray edition
an all new making of featurette with new interviews with Charles Band, Tim Thomerson
and Writers Danny Bilson and Paul De meo
this featurette only Goes for 15mins but very interesting interviews about the Making of Trancers
it's stated as a Documentary on the Menu, but it's actually just a featurette that goes for 15mins
there's rare interviews with Tom Thomerson, Helen hunt, Megan ward
which is actually just a 4-5mins Promo for the film Trancers 2 that's all it is.
there's also a new Audio commentary by Charles band and Tim thomerson
there just reminicing about the making of Trancers during 1985
during the commentray it seems Charles band has amnesia and can't remember filming most scenes
and can't remember casting Helen Hunt which is Tragic,
Tim thomerson remembers filming the whole film and Helen Hunt so he refreshes Charles band's memory
so the Audio commentray maybe a waste of time, it depends whose listening to the commentary i guess
what is also included in the special features
is the so-called lost Trancers sequel City of lost angels which was filmed 1-2years after TRANCERS 1 was released in Theaters
but for some reason was never released to the Public
i do think one of the reasons why that is, this lost sequel only goes for 25mins max
so it's 25mins of extra footage really which could have been included in the original TRANCERS film i think
the TRANCERS runtime only goes for 77mins so 25mins could easily been added to that
it's an interesting mini sequel, the plot connects between TRANCERS 1 AND 2 which was filmed in 1990
you can make up your own opinion of that
this mini sequel is Included in the special features in widescreen format of course just Digital remastered
there's also a rare still Gallery aswell
so if your a big fan of TRANCERS like myself, Definitely get this blu-ray edition, worth the money for sure
scrap the old dvd release and ignore the other bad reviews about this film
those other reviewers don't know what they're talking about they're obviously not fans of the film
i gave this blu-ray edition 5 stars for sure.
impressive is the fact that it was made for less than $1000000 and has a pre Oscar winning Helen Hunt. Also spawned 5 sequels.
