Solid.

In 1927, this cool German dude Fritz Lang directed the most expensive picture of day. If you're a kid from the 80s, you've actually probably seen the flick as it was re-released in theaters in 1984 with a whole rock score. Performances by Pat Benatar, Freddie Mercury and Bonnie Tyler guided the story of a sci-fi, urban dystopia flick and became a smash hit with audiences.

Now, the movie is being re-released AGAIN to theaters, in honor of the movie finally making it to DVD/Blu-Ray. The flick, dubbed, Giorgio Moroder Presents Metropolis, will have a roughly 20-city theatrical run before releasing on disc on November 15th.

Good stuff! Definitely a great way to relive some of the best music from the era as well as Lang's futuristic take!

    I'd love to see a remake that uses the original set designs and plotting. Especially of that female robot.

    Unless you have an appreciation for the story in the movie, and can get past the movie being dated, the story is purdy awesome.
