Great movie, good overall remastering job, accept, that it, the crucial readout scene, you know, the one that shows us who's on the hijacked plane, heading for a crash landing in New York...

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...


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)...

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK [1981/2015] [2 Disc Collector’s Edition] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Dark and Dangerous! Meet Snake Plissken, the world's coolest man!

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!

Format: DVD
There's always something bizarre, in a very cool way, about watching a futuristic movie set in a year we've already passed. It's very eerie. Released in 1981, "Escape From New York" opens to explain that in 1988, Manhattan Island was transformed into a Maximum Security Prison, surrounded by a massive wall from every angle; guarded by police, with landmines at every exit route. The film is set in 1997, when terrorists bring down Air Force One, president and all, right into the heart of the forbidden island. Luckily, the president has survived thanks to his escape pod, and a rescue team is immediately dispatched in an effort to retrieve him and his special cargo. The president carries with him a cassette tape (very futuristic, eh?) of recorded information that could bring peace to the currently warring nations, but the time left with which to use it in is short. The rescue team finds the escape pod empty, and is soon approached by a loony prisoner with a grim message. The president has been taken captive by the A-Number One inmate of Manhattan Island, The Duke of New York. This is a job for... SNAKE PLISSKEN!
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.
