Absolutely gorgeous Steelbook of a great transfer of this cult classic. Nice booklet too.

So why am I posting this at the most expensive price it's ever been? I've been closely watching the price of this and it's just about cleaned out everywhere - this is perhaps the your LAST CHANCE to buy the steelbook from a retailer at anything like a sane price!

---------------

"Three years after helping to achieve some of the most amazing imagery in cinema history with 2001: A Space Odyssey, special effects maestro Douglas Trumbull made an auspicious directorial debut at age 29 with the environmentally themed science fiction classic Silent Running.

In the distant future, plant life on our planet is extinct. Remaining specimens are cultivated in vast greenhouse-like domes orbiting in space. Bruce Dern stars as Freeman Lowell, dedicated botanist aboard the “Valley Forge”, awaiting the call to refoliate Earth – despite the scorn of his crewmates.

When an order comes to instead destroy the domes and return home, Lowell takes matters into his own hands, beginning a long and lonely voyage into the unknown. With its remarkable special effects (especially the robot drones Huey, Dewey, and Louie); glorious score (including songs performed by Joan Baez); memorable sound effects (created by Joseph Byrd from the cult band The United States of America); a screenplay co-written by Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter) and Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues), and an impassioned central performance from Dern, Silent Running remains a uniquely contemplative and haunting adventure that continues to make hippies of young children, even today.

The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a new Blu-ray special edition to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary."

Great Blu Ray. Overpriced steelbook.



Depends how badly someone wants it.

The next nearest retail is now £39.99 and the standard basic amray version is a tenner anyway.

Rekcon sealed copies will be changing hands for £50+ in a few months!

I remember watching this as a kid and crying when huey,dewey and louie all kicked the bucket. The hippy tree hugging music has made it very dated though.

Didn't realise this was going OOP. Was my first MoC blu-ray title and the reason I started buying blu-rays. Second only to Kubrick's 2001 and Scott's Alien (and maybe Blade Runner).

Who said it's going OOP ?



Both the Amray and Steelbook are limited edition.

With stocks drying up seems like that's it for the Steelbook.

It's been out for over three years...(_;) The steelbook might be getting harder to find but there's no shortage of stock for the standard Amarary.

I'm not sure I understand your point?

Yes - it was released in 2011. Steelbook is selling out NOW. That's why I'm posting this ! (_;)

Comment #8 thought it was going oop. It's not (the title that is). That was my point.

was dead lucky to get my copy for £3.50

OK. This deal only concerns the Steelbook.

That went OOP in Nov 2011.
