I'm not sure how I was able to make it to almost 45 years old and not have seen this film or ever heard a single note of the music. Needless to say, after listening to the samples, it was quickly ordered.

I recommend the movie itself, of course we are all buying this fine CD release today. Previously Netflix had this streaming, it might have expired. Otherwise there is not a bluray, oddly, but there is a DVD. I found the film pretty entertaining, and sometimes surprising. I think it was nicely made all around, and very atmospheric visually. Too bad it never took fire in order to make another couple or so films like they wanted it to.


Hopefully Netflix has it available for streaming, because as usual our county library system doesn't have anything.

Totally agree. Of the crop of "young people" movies Amblin was making around this time, YSH was a refreshing change of pace. It was darker, more restrained, more adult in a way. Also the first feature Pixar ever worked on, and the first ever use of CGI!

There was a pretty big deal made about the stained glass knight at the time because nothing like that had ever been done, but The Last Starfighter might be the 1st film to use CGI to represent real objects. However, I think the knight was the 1st "photoreal" CGI character.

Wrath of Khan (genesis sequence), Tron and Star Wars (wireframe readouts) are some other early examples but the use in those are more like simulations.


I agree about YSH being an entertaining film. I think I'll show my 10 year old son soon.

I believe YSH was the first film to feature a digital character.

Well done, Intrada. Such a great score.

Yeah Mike, cool movie all around, and I though that pyramid set was really interesting. The young actors were really quite good as well.

I checked on Netflix on the USA side, looks like they do not have it anymore.
They really need to get after making a nice BluRay.

Why isn't this thread on fire? It should be.

Incalculable to thanks Doug and his great team!


I'm certainly surprised that the thread isn't more active. The release has been clamoured for, for ages.

I haven't really posted anything because I've been enjoying the previous Promo release for years and I'm in too minds about whether to pick up this remaster or not.

I know one shouldn't judge sound clips but the clip of Waxing Elizabeth seems....off, but not in a good way, I don't know. Especially from the original release. Maybe I'm too use to it.

Never seen the movie and not familiar with the score but after hearing the clips, it's refreshing to hear a film score that sounds like actual MUSIC!

OK, so I've had the older Intrada produced "promo" for years... but to be honest haven't listened to it in ages.

Loved the score so... should I upgrade ya think? The samples I can't really tell... guess I'll wait until folks get this and we get more feedback.

Plus I had to have Psycho II so...can't order anything for a few weeks
