Movie Reviews

"I Love the 80s" DVD version
Low-Ranking Reviewer | US of A | 07/02/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Movie :
Original Airplane + variations of the same jokes + Battlestar Galactica theme + William Shatner = a very good sequel. I think Einstein came up with that equation and i would have to agree. I enjoyed Airplane 2 as much as the first, if not more believe it or not, just for reasons mentioned above(your mileage may vary). The sequel is just basically more of the same taking place on a space shuttle.

But you can find better, more in-depth, scholarly reviews of the film from others. I'm here to discuss the new "I love the 80's" dvd version. Not much to discuss really. It's an 84 minute(the cut version), bare bones, widescreen edition with basic chapter/set-up options(english or french audio and english subtitles)...and that's it. Picture quality is not that good. So it's not a special or new edition by any means, unless you count new cover art as special cause i don't. If you got a previous version, no need to update.

CD :
However, i picked up my copy for $7.50 at a certain retail outfit with the bullseye logo(ok it was Target, they're affiliated with Amazon so i think it's ok to mention them). They had a section dedicated to this 'new' 80's dvd series and every one of them had a sticker for it advertising a free bonus "limited edition cd". There are only 4 songs on it, but 4 very good choices :
Echo & the Bunnymen's "Lips Like Sugar" (awesome)
Erasure's "Chains of Love" (excellent)
INXS's "Need You Tonight" (very cool)
A-Ha's "Take On Me" (never heard of it)

Overall :
The movie i recommend as a comedy or if you enjoyed the first and basically want more. The 80's series dvd version i recommend only if you don't have a previous version on dvd, cause they really haven't added anything new by way of special features or remastering. The new artwork and 4-song bonus cd is not really a big incentive either, and let's face it...if you're an 80's fan you'd have those songs anyway(except for the A-Ha song, i hear that's pretty rare)."
