I firmly believe the film's impact has been unnecessarily diminished by its revisionist lack of color.
For the sake of comparison, I revisited Full Metal Jacket to see if that film's soldiers practiced the same firearms safety. In a word-- Nope.
Wait a minute. This is supposed to be 1977. Why are they playing a song from 1979?
The terrorist plot in the movie's perpetrated by a maniacal Stalinist, instead of the usual "inside job" CIA conspirators whose nefarious shenanigans movie audiences were usually treated to throughout the Seventies and Eighties.
In (humorous) reference to a movie which I don't particularly care for.
I don't regret buying the Blu-ray set, but I think I have a clearer idea why Shout Select chose to sell the series as a combo set instead of individually. The series has a few turkeys which showcase comedic sensibilities that honestly haven't aged very well over the past thirty-to-fifty-plus years.
