    Arrow it is! I loved their FOXY BROWN release and will definitely pick up COFFY as well.

    I have both of those Arrow releases & highly recommend each one. Arrow's release of Coffy has a brand new interview with Pam Grier. First time I can think of that she has participated in any bonus materials. Great interview too. :)

    Did you get a chance to view it yet? How's the quality?

    I did. I thought it looked perfectly fine, but not mind blowing. Pretty much the norm for Olive's MGM releases. I would imagine it's sourced from the same HD master used for the 2007 MGM DVD and Showtime's HDTV airings. Fortunately, there's lots of colors, neon, and '90s dayglo fashion to give the movie a bit of a visual pop. If you're a fan of the film, I'd say go for it, especially if you missed out on the OOP MGM DVD. The disc will surely get a lot of play from me, as it's a fun movie to have on in the background, where you look up every once in a while and there's usually something fun to chuckle at.

    Only extra is the trailer, but I'm grateful that Olive included it. They haven't even been bothering with trailers on quite a few of their recent releases (BioDome and Night Game come to mind).

    I think it's just an Amazon issue. I've noticed quite a few future releases went to "Currently unavailable" over the last few days -- ROAR, POLICE STORY: LOCKDOWN, LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN, etc. I imagine they'll be fixed in a few weeks.

    That said, the Arrow disc is excellent with a ton of extras, so if you're a fan of the movie it's probably the preferable edition, regardless.

    Did anyone here pick up a copy of LATE FOR DINNER? This one seems to have been totally forgotten since none of the boards I frequent talks about the film. I just watched my copy and really enjoyed the film - it was a worthy blind buy. Kind of an oddball film to be sure but still very enjoyable and sweet.

    EDIT: Oops, just realized this is a Kino release. My bad.

    You can probably still buy STUDENT BODIES as a double bill on Blu with JEKYLL/HYDE...TOGETHER AGAIN from Legend as you can still pick it up, probably cheaper than what Olive wants

    I really wonder why they couldn't have used original art for last American virgin?

    I'm guessing the film never had decent art to begin with. The "vagina"/zipper-down art is what's on the Arrow release - Olive just replaced the shot of the cast with the film's title. Lazy.
