Yeah, well be my guess trying to make out ANYTHING on the print out screen other than n nice fluorescent green blur... :(
Seriously, had I not known what it was suppose to say, there's NO WAY to have figured it out till later events...
BIG, GREEN, BLUURRRR...
Chalk up another problem with a, Shout Factory/Scream Factory release, one which easily could have been avoided if someone had actually sat down and watched the transfer before committing it to Blu-ray (and by watching I don't mean having it playing in the background while the viewer updates his Facebook status and or his blog, no, I mean sit and actually PAY ATTENTION to the visuals on the screen (I mean crap, pay me and I'd be thrilled to watch movies and take notes on issues with the source material, so that the best version of the movie gets released)...

1997. New York City is walled maximum security prison. Breaking out is impossible. Breaking in is insane. A thrilling landmark film that jolts along at a breakneck pace, ‘Escape From New York’ leapt to cult status with high-octane action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and the mind-blowing vision of lone warrior Snake Plissken [Kurt Russell] battling his way out of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan!
In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a walled prison where brutal prisoners roam. But when the US President [Donald Pleasence] crash-lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw and former Special Forces war hero Snake Plissken [Kurt Russell]. But time is short. In 24 hours, an explosive device implanted in his neck will end Snake’s mission, and his life, unless he succeeds!

Yes, Snake Plissken: war hero; the youngest man ever to be decorated by the president; and recently, bank robber. Before being condemned to join the other inmates of Manhattan Island, Snake is made an offer. Go in, come back with the president and the tape before the clock runs out, and get a full pardon. But to sweeten the deal, another card is played. Snake is injected with two tiny capsules into his bloodstream. If he doesn't make it back in time to have the capsules neutralized, they will explode and rupture his arteries, killing him immediately. The only thing Snake really cares about anymore is himself, so now he has no choice.Read more ›
