I vividly remember seeing this in theaters with my mom and sister back in '86 and being totally blown away. We went for panzerotti afterwards and all I could think about was the jumping, mid-air sword fights in the big climax. Instant 8 year old Carpenter fan.
It didn't do much at the box office, but it made a killing on VHS rentals and cable.
the best in my opinion, obviously. Big trouble is my favourite movie ever, and the soundtrack really rules !! I have bought the previous cd editions many many years ago, and I have listened to them hundreds of times.
now I will have the complete score, it's a dream that comes true !!!
