    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    • Floydian Trip

      What’s with the weak JC collection. I want a Blu box set with all his films although I’m sure that would be impossible.

      High Definition? Hell, how about putting out an edition of Phantasm with a little more than a trailer. I mean after all these years of waiting for it just to hit standard definition and this is what we get.

      • Uncle Creepy

        Or at the very least the unrated version.

    • Daniel

      I wish that the Carpenter collection was being released on Blu-Ray, but I guess I’m happy with an Army of Darkness Blu-Ray.

    • Masked Slasher

      I really hate that Phantasm II isn’t on BD. C’mon Universal – get some of your catalogue titles out in high definition.
