    Documentaries like these aren't any good for escapism from Clown World.

            @serpserpserp: No I meant these would be the words an OzBargainer would see on billboards throughout the city, after they put on a pair of Hoffman lenses.

    yeah no "The Thing" that would have been worth it on its own!

      I still think the original was better. I’m not big on buckets of gore.

          I’m a dudette. I prefer the psychological rather than the gross.

          • +1 vote

            @try2bhelpful: But the original is neither. It's bland schlock. It's a big Plant Frankenstein and the scientists say no we must study and then they die so they kill the plant man.

            The 80s version is primarily psychological (who can you trust?) with a physical element.

      Switch in The Thing for The Fog. The Fog is just a rough draft of Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Worth it for "They Live" alone

  • +8 votes

    They Live is legitimately the most under rated film in cinema history. The alleyway fight scene alone is cinematic perfection!

      I think a lot of Carpenter's stuff is underrated, besides the obvious - Halloween. Big Trouble in Little China is one of my all-time favorites and has been since I was a kid.

        YES! Haha, Screamers! I've never seen anyone mention it in the wild. I love that one too! Found that one channel surfing at 2am as a teen.

          salute of the jugger - why no 4k?

    Why doesn't 'The Thing' have a 4K/UHD release?

      It's like why is there no Aliens UHD. Just a travesty.

      • +1 vote

        Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection are currently getting remastered in 4K with a boxset that's supposed to be released sometime next year.

        Argh. Damn liars. Told me no copies had or would be sold.

        Poor form JB. Cancelled my other items with them as well.

        • +3 votes

          Yep, I got a call too, but this one claiming that "all copies from all stores have been sent back to the distributor as it's a deleted title, so we won't be able to supply it."

          I told them that I knew for a fact people had picked up copies earlier. "I don't think so, because we don't have any stock in any Australian store, it's all been sent back to the distributor."

          Very poor form indeed from JB on this one. Just be honest and say it was a pricing error or whatever, but don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining…

            @Neon Kitten: Weak. I went to school with the person running operations in my state. Some words will be shared.

            When I had a mate buy a tv recently, they had a pushy guy at the back of the store refusing to load it into his car, so he called me around with my 4wd. Same guy then tried to tell me it couldn't be loaded into my 4wd for a ton of bs reasons and that if he still wanted it done anyway they would void his warranty.

            All the while kept trying to upsell a $25 delivery fee to "protect the item… and his warranty".

            To add to things, he lived within walking distance, and I even offered for us to just walk it…. again walking away with it would void the warranty…

            I hate dropping names but the second I mentioned going to person with this school, all of a sudden he wanted to get out a tape measure and re-measure the back of my car as it might be "deeper than it looked" and wouldn't you know it, enough room for the TV to fit and meet his "requirements" to maintain the warranty.

            Then didn't want me telling this person…

              @typhoonadventure: I'd guarantee you that copies at this store that supposedly "sent them all back" (Prahran in Victoria) will be back on the shelves in no time at the regular price; they were telling me an outright lie so that I couldn't insist on them honouring the price I'd already paid. And a really lazy lie, at that - claiming that all stock got sent back to the distributor "because it's been deleted" - like, WHAT?

              They haven't processed my refund yet, either.

              That's one JB store I will never shop at again.

    Picked up my copy from Jb Hi Fi in Elizabeth

    I ordered it online on Thursday night Click and Collect and had no problems picking it up today from Maroochydore Home. I was told it was their last one. Seemed to be true as I looked at other 4k Blu-rays and didn't see any copies on the shelves.

  •  

    Same here, ordered Thursday night and I just picked it up about 4 hours ago. Checked on the shelves and none left, asked about any extras and was told there all gone.
