hey, thats a great little article.  i cant believe he mentions PTA out of the blue.  what are the chances of that?  you should have mentioned that PTA loves his movies as well. :)

Big Trouble in Little China 2: Screenwriter Corey Mitchel spoke with producer Debra Hill and director John Carpenter last week, and indicated John is "totally on board" for a Big Trouble sequel providing that Corey can get it set up. Kurt Russell is rumoured to be similarly interested, and apparently work is underway in getting in touch with Jackie Chan regarding the project.

On December 16th, MGM Home entertainment will at last release John Carpenter's cult classic Escape From New York in a new two-disc special edition. Remastered in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, extras include the full 10-minute deleted "Robbery Sequence" restored and with optional commentary with Carpenter and star Kurt Russell, two additional full-length audio commentaries with Carpenter and Russell and producer Debra Hill and production designer Joe Alves, the new "Return to Escape From New York" documentary, the "Making of John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles" comic featurette, a still gallery, trailers, and an exclusive full-color mini-comic inside the package. Retail is $29.95


If it's the same Carpenter/Russell commentary track from the laserdisc (which I'm pretty sure it is), it's a worth owning just for that.

what was the deal with the new halloween divimax edition. i heard the color timing was off or something. is it worth getting? i wish there was a version with the commentary track, proper color timing, and a seamless branching feature for the scenes in the TV version. that would be perfect! TOO perfect for whoever's churning out these multiple editions, i suppose...

I got it and was happy with it.  I absolutely love Halloween...it still scares me...but my g/f thinks it is funny...and not scary.
