Busted Up (1986) 1987 US MCA Home Video VHS + 1987 Canadian Cineplex Odeon/MCA VHS

I've had the MCA Home Video VHS of Conrad Palmisano's Busted Up for about 4 years now. I remember purchasing it many summers ago for just a buck. A pretty good bare knuckle boxing drama, based on writer/co-producer Damian Lee's pre-film career as a bare knuckle boxer in Peru. I recently obtained the Canadian VHS released by Cineplex Odeon/MCA and I wanted to post some images that compare the 2 tapes. The only real difference, or advantage between the two tapes is that the Canadian VHS can actually be backed up onto a DVD-R, while the US VHS is copy-protected. The only downside however, is that the Canadian VHS lacks Closed Captioning, while the US VHS had that.
