I really don't think there's much they can do to help Flash Gordon....

Turn the volume of the music up maybe...

Mix the music in 5.1...
Dunno- crappy movie, even crappier soundtrack... It made me cringe so many times when I watched it...

They'll probably do what they did in France, have the film remastered and cleaned up and then the bonus disc the soundtrack.

Shame its not Highlander, I'm sure alot of fans would like a special edition of that film - remastered film first disc, proper soundtrack second disc.

Get rid of all the crappy scenes...

...which means the entire movie.

The DVD is already fixed, and probably was when some bloke said he was the producer on June 15th.

Unless you believe that scheduling Brian Blessed for an audio commentary and producing a DVD takes less than a month.....

...in which case, would you like to buy London Bridge?

The DVD will be released on mid-October (that is if it does not get postponed by the QRRDS). It is STILL under production. Yes, they have already remastered the film. They have also remixed the soundtrack in 5.1 surround sound (to be featured in BOTH DD and DTS) from a newly discovered 8-track master (the French DVD uses a damaged/incomplete one).

How much it is the London Bridge? Would you send it to Argentina?

Yeah, that it is EXACTLY as the press release says (including the picture), but it also says that other features are still under consideration. Also a Collector's Edition from this release is being discussed.

yes I'd just love the pure music with no sounds from the movie....that way you could enjoy the whole 40+ minutes of Queen music without feeling like you are being interupted....interviews with Brian and Roger would be good....a proper remix of The Hero would be good too...music outakes...
