Good deal on a decent 80s film. Year or two ago paid the same for just the DVD. Also, prepare for the onslaught of one-liners in the comments from the movie (i.e. See you at the party, Richter!)

We picked up this blu-ray a year or so ago. One thing I found funny that the movie people invented lots of cool, new "future" technology but there were still tons of CRT-based TV's everywhere. Nobody foresaw that introduction of either flat-screen or wide-screen TV's...

$8.28 with tax and shipping for me. It's only $6.99 (with prime shipping) from Amazon. But shipping from Target is free if you spend $50 (but shipping is free from Amazon if you spend $25)... Choices, choices...

@tsfisch: That's with any scifi movie. Look at Alien, Aliens, Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001...

Even when they can communicate via video, the operating system that their computers function on are text-based. "Mother" is entirely text input driven, and responds via white text on a black screen... and yet this ship can travel to space, put crew members into and awake them safely from hypersleep, and journey to uncharted worlds with a crew of less than 10.

@tsfisch:
I could have sworn there was a scene early in the movie where they had a large flat panel TV that doubled as a fake scenery window.

Re Video devices: I guess you missed the scenes in their apartment at the breakfast table... wall-sized flat panels.

@superninja, @wbu:

Yes, there was that one scene. But there are dozens of others that have the CRT's, amid very high-tech surroundings.
