Excerpt: Fans of Fraggle Rock and Sesame Street will see a very familiar creative streak and aesthetic in this wild, eccentric 1986 sci-fi/musical/horror. Though very different from his previous films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, Frank Oz (when not voicing Kermit or planting cellophane bags of Angel Dust on Dan Aykroyd) does seem right at home and the perfect choice to direct this movie of a giant hungry plant gone mad.
One of the Worst Cover Art Jobs Ever- But Its Got It Where it Counts
15 December 2013
Excerpt: The legendary alternate ending restored in all its glory, you won't likely watch the sappy -rappy re-shoot ever again. Too bad they couldn't have used the theatrical poster artwork, i.e. the one from the recalled DVD with the "special edition" text on the top. Seriously the artwork looks like one of the most half assed photoshop jobs ever. The only one worse in the blu ray era I can think of is Pleasantville.
Excerpt: In the fifth grade, back in 2005, I discovered this film. After the first viewing, I fell in love with this film. I remember being in fifth grade and having to draw our favorite things and I drew the Audrey II (also in fifth grade, I did a craft that was only done using colored paper and I made a War of the Worlds poster). Well, after becoming obsessed, I bought the soundtrack and watched the original cut ending in B&W on Youtube over and over.
Excerpt: The Film: Theatrical Cut: 4.5 Director's Cut: 5.0 This film is a classic; one of my childhood memories. Why do I think the director's cut is better then the theatrical cut is because the ending of the theatrical cut rubbed me the wrong way in more ways then one. First: The ending was no where close to the play. Second: Why would a man eating plant try to kill someone with a collapsing a building. Third: Seymour is rewarded for murder (charming).
Excerpt: Here's a flick that I myself wasn't too much a fan of when it was initially released back in 1986. Something just didn't sit right with me. Flash forward nearly 30 years and I've really grown to not only appreciate this quirky little film, but I've come to love it. Thankfully this Blu-Ray release is pretty solid all around.
Excerpt: I've been dying for this movie to come out on BD. Not only it's finally released in HD, the original ending is also in tact! The extras a bit low but overall I'm satisfied. Thank you for making me truly happy with this edition.
Little Shop of Horrors finally gets the release it deserves
18 October 2012
Excerpt: After finally receiving it from Amazon and having to wait a grueling two weeks, one of my all-time favorite films is finally in my hands on Bu-Ray, with its alternate ending restored, of course! The video quality is downright fantastic, and those that think the alternate ending may not look good, I think it actually looks better than the re-shot ending! It looks as if the film came out just yesterday.
