    New 1980s Trailer Comp

    ATTACK OF THE 80s, a new dvd from Televista (who are known for pretty poorly produced discs), still was worth a pickup from me because of the totally random nature of the 50 trailers that are included. In a "grindhouse"-ey kind of way it doesn't much bother me that the trailers will all look like crap, I guess. I had to dig around a bit to find which trailers were included before I ordered it, but here are the films:

    1. Porky's [1:38]
    2. An Eye for an Eye [1:56]
    3. Krull [1:32]
    4. Silkwood [2:18]
    5. Hardly Working [:51]
    6. Star Wars "Return of the Jedi" [1:38]
    7. Tarzan "The Ape Man" [2:40]
    8. Six Weeks [3:04]
    9. The Thing [2:00]
    10. Continental Divide [2:57]
    11. Hard to Hold [2:48]
    12. Conan the Barbarian [2:14]
    13. Educating Rita [2:26]
    14. Wholly Moses! [2:24]
    15. The Shining [1:37]
    16. Honey Suckle Rose [1:34]
    17. La Cage aux Folles 2 [1:24]
    18. Inchon! [2:42]
    19. Up the Academy [2:30]
    20. Some Kind of Hero [2:51]
    21. Personal Best [2:14]
    22. Reckless [1:34]
    23. Divine Madness [3:23]
    24. The Cannon Ball Run [3:01]
    25. Death Wish 2 [1:59]
    26. Heartbeeps [2:28]
    27. The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas [2:41]
    28. The Right Stuff [3:35]
    29. Hercules [1:34]
    30. Amityville Horror 2 "The Possession" [2:01]
    31. The Last Unicorn [3:09]
    32. The Awakening [2:11]
    33. Staying Alive [3:04]
    34. Lovesick [2:27]
    35. Easy Money [2:22]
    36. Victor Victoria [2:25]
    37. Used Cars [1:22]
    38. The Rolling Stones "Let's Spend the Night Together" [2:33]
    39. Yentl [1:30]
    40. Outland [2:52]
    41. The Verdict [2:24]
    42. No Nukes [2:58]
    43. Dressed to Kill [2:15]
    44. Swamp Thing [1:35]
    45. Gloria [3:01]
    46. The Final Conflict [1:55]
    47. The Return of Captain Invincible [2:36]
    48. War Games [1:38]
    49. The Big Chill [2:40]
    50. The Road Warrior [2:55]

    In keeping with the Televista tradition, how much you wanna bet these are ripped from old VHS tapes? Or even actual TV broadcasts?

    No bet from me, since you are probably 99,99% right on this. But maybe they rip them from youtube, but since this is too much work for them I go for the VHS tape.

    My concern is if there is any copyright issues. Televista is known as a "bootleg" company.

    They're trailers, people. Copyright issues? Concerns over VHS quality? With all due respect, WHO CARES? If they were from the TV broadcasts even, that would add to the nostalgia for me.

    I'm so there.

    Sounds like a pretty rad list to me, so I'll probably pick this up in due time.

    I don't think that the trailers have a copyright since they are just a form of publicity. The only problem that I see is : since the source is probably VHS tape the trailers are not necessary the theatral one. But it's not that important.

    Trailers do indeed have copyright issues, It's that most studios don't enforce them. People have to be hired to cut the trailers, many times inserting scenes not even in the film (and sometimes shooting material just for the trailer). It then has to be scored and then voice-over talent hired to narrate the copy written for it. Having been involved in a few trailers myself, I can tell you that it's no different than making a short movie.
