I am beyond thrilled that Shout Factory has announced that they will be releasing a collector's edition Blu-ray of of the 1987 film Dudes. This film stars Jon Cryer and Daniel Roebuck, and was directed by Penelope Spheeris (Waynes World). It was previously only available on a full screen VHS tape, and pretty much the only way to get it now is a DVD bootleg. I generally do not support bootlegs, but there was no other way to get it on DVD, and I had already purchased the VHS version.
Dudes is a real oddity in that it is a punk rock western, as it states on the box. It is just the kind of forgotten gem that Shout/Scream Factory is famous for giving an awesome Blu-ray release to. I have actually written to them in the past asking that they consider Dudes for a release. The only unfortunate thing about this release is waiting until the September 19th release date.
