One of my favorite movies and perhaps the best soundtrack of all-time.
I remember the first time I saw it. Like 3 am in the morning after coming home drunk. It was strange and a little hard to understand drunk, but I watched it later sober and fell in love with it. I have owned it on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD and now Blu-Ray. Have the extended cut, which I highly recommend to anyone that loves the move. I love the added scenes explaining his relationships with Rachel. It really makes the few lines they have in the movie meaningful when you understand their true relationship.
As to the sequels, it is really hard to make a sequel to something after someone already has the ultimate prize, the series was like a prequel, but then again you already knew how it would/should end.
