Michael Ironside, Welcome to the Criterion Collection

Oh, how I've long waited for this moment.  What would be the first Michael Ironside film in the Criterion Collection?  Would it be STARSHIP TROOPERS, FORCED TO KILL, HIGHLANDER 2, or FREE WILLY?  A special edition of CHAINDANCE?  TOTAL RECALL?  Or maybe THUNDERGROUND?  A box set of his WALKER, TEXAS RANGER episodes?

Well, the wait is over, and it's SCANNERS– the head-s'plodin' Cronenbergy classick.  And what's this??

Nope, not "The 'Scanners' Way."  Not "The Ephemerol Diaries."  Yep, this one:
 Now that he has newfound legitimacy with the cultural elite, I say bring on the box set of his Labatt Maximum Ice Commercials!
