"... and proceed to travel across the irradiated America in a high-tech tank called the "Landmaster" (movie geeks like myself who lived in L.A. in the early '80s were always thrilled to spot the Landmaster in a lot just off the freeway north of the Hollywood Bowl)."
I remember seeing this shortly after moving to LA in Feb. 1996. I knew exactly what it was, and what movie it came from. I, too, used to love seeing it when I drove by the area. Very cool!
Just a heads-up, Scott: while listing the new releases from Quartet, you forgot to include mention of their new Bruno Coulais title...also, though they announced them a few days earlier, I don't know if you made mention of their holiday titles: Skram's Snofall and Bicat's A Christmas Story?
