I spent 4 years, from when it was first released on VHS in 87 to 91 when I finally saw it, thinking RoboCop was coloured bronze/orange because of that cover, was a bit of a shock when this turned out not to be true when me and my mate sneakily watched his older brothers VHS during the school holidays

Default Robocop

Whilst I don't really have a problem with Arrow, or indeed any other label, releasing whatever titles they choose, I don't really see the point in another release of Robocop. The MGM/Fox remastered Blu-ray release looks fantastic and I seem to recall that it has quite a number of good bonus features.

NEW UK TITLE: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Limited Edition)

Release date: November 25th, 2019

Flashback to Gilliam and Thompson’s trip of a lifetime in an exclusive 4K restoration

"Considered unfilmable for decades, Hunter S. Thompson s literary landmark of psychedelic excess finally met its cinematic match in anarchic visionary director Terry Gilliam (Twelve Monkeys) and two no-holds-barred star performances by Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.

Raoul Duke (Depp) and his volatile Samoan attorney Dr. Gonzo (del Toro) are en route to Las Vegas, ostensibly on a banal journalistic assignment, but the suitcase full of psychoactive narcotics in their possession tells another story. Beset by bats, horny lizards and runaway hotel carpet upon their arrival, the pair plunge deeper into the pharmaceutically enhanced neon underbelly of the City of Sin on a chemically charged savage journey to the heart of the American Dream.

Flashback to Gilliam and Thompson s trip of a lifetime in an exclusive 4K restoration, accompanied by an outstanding selection of bonus material delving into the history of the film and the original book."

NEW US/CA TITLE: Flowers in the Attic (Blu-ray)

A dark and chilling Gothic suspense thriller in the classic tradition

"When her husband dies in a tragic accident, widow Corrine Dollanganger (Victoria Tennant, The Holcroft Covenant) takes her four children to the ancestral family home she fled before they were born.

But with their mother growing increasingly distant and erratic and a mysterious sickness taking hold, will any of the Dollanganger children survive to escape the clutches of the house’s cruel matriarch?

Originally published in 1979, VC Andrews’ novel Flowers in the Attic was a smash hit, spawning four sequels and going on to sell over 40 million copies worldwide.

Arrows website has already crashed because everyone is trying to preorder RoboCop, despite my earlier comments, I’ve preordered it from Amazon just in case it sells out and I change my mind about not double dipping

Still think the artwork is a bag of wank though!

It's not. It's really not very good. I used to have it on dvd. It's by far the worst of any Harry Novak related film i've seen.
